.Coms Sweep 9 of the Week's Top 10 Domain Sales and Biggest .IT Sale Ever Reported is Revealed

Domain sales both new and old are in the spotlight this week. While we were putting the final touches on this week's sales column we learned details of a previously unreported 2016 sale of Casino.it to Nidoma.com for a stunning €400,000 ($452,000 at today's exchange rate). You will find full details on that story in a report in our Lowdown section. That was the biggest Italian ccTLD sale ever reported to us, more than 7 times higher than the previous record holder (Like.it at €55,000 in 2014). 

The Casino.it sale happened in a previous year so it is not eligible for our latest weekly chart but we have placed it on both the 2016 All extension Top 100 Chart (where it is #13) and the 2016 ccTLD Top 100 Chart (where it is #2, behind only Furniture.co.uk at $650,000). You can see those updated charts in our Domain Sales Archive

While the Casino.it news will be welcome in country code circles, it was the .coms that again dominated our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart, sweeping the first nine spots and 15 of 20 entries overall. NameJet released all of their June sales this week allowing them to claim all nine of the highest ranked sales, starting with Jingzhou.com at $65,000 and BUI.com at $36,800.

Coincidently it was a .it domain that stopped the .coms from taking every position on the top half of the elite list. Sedo halted the .com assault with #10 Flix.it at $22,000.

The non .com gTLDs took four places (all posted by NameJet) with a pair of two-letter .nets leading that quartet. #12 EC.net sold for $18,009 and #13 JC.net notched $17,288.  

Chart honors also went to Michael Mann's DomainMarket.com for their $13,388 sale of #15 PHSolutions.com. Mann said he had purchased that domain for just $90 in 2009. 

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 2, 2017:

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.
