Pair of 3-Letter .Coms Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart - One Hits Six Figures

We often talk about the summer doldrums at this time of year - more people are on vacation and activity in the domain aftermarket often slows down. So, this being the official first day of summer it is not surprising to see a relatively low number of sales reported this week, especially in the non .com categories. Even so, every week generates at least a few notable sales and the one just past was no exception with the always reliable 3-letter .coms leading the parade. They produced the top two sales on latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with PEP.com setting the pace after changing hands for $100,000 in a private transaction. 

PEP.com, of course, is not just a 3-letter acronym - it is also a dictionary word which adds a good bit more value, especially when it is one that has a positive connotation like pep does. I would not have been surprised to see this one go a good bit higher as it would make a great brand name for companies in a wide variety of fields.

The runner-up spot went to EPG.com, a domain that drew $50,000 at Sedo, lighting a fuse that saw them go on to sweep 14 of the 20 chart entries including six on the top half of the elite list.

It was also an overwhelmingly dominant week for the .coms as they claimed every position on the Big Board but two. One exception was Sedo's sale of a ccTLD - #19 Vital.tv - at $7,952. The .com contingent incuded #3 InvestSmart.com ($25,000 in a private transaction), Sedo's sale of #4 Fremdgehen.com at $22,400 and a pair of $20,000 sales at Michael Mann's DomainMarket.com, involving Dalwhinnie.com and DeepCurrent.com, that rounded out the first five. Stu Maloff's sales platform, BrandableBusiness.com, also contributed to the .com cause with #16 (tie) OGUS.com at $8,000.

This was the worst week we've ever seen for non .com gTLDs. Only two sales were reported for the entire category. This group has been sliding in sales volume for several years now but it is still a shock to see the number reported in any given week come this close to zero. Still, one of those two did make the Big Board - #20 TYI.org at $7,488.

Keep in mind that these are the highest value cash only sales that have been reported to us in the past week. This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales. Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both. Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available here.
