Pair of .Com Sales Totaling Over $817,000 Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart 

This week's leader on our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart - MK.com - ran away from the rest of the field after changing hands for $700,000 in a deal we first told you about in our Lowdown section Friday (November 9). The rare 2-letter .com went to a Chinese buyer in a deal brokered by Joe Uddeme at NameExperts.com. That is the 5th highest domain sale reported so far this year. In an interesting side note, Joe also brokered the 5th highest sale of 2017 when he sold 20.com for $1,750,000.

This week's #2 domain also reached six figures. That spot went to Nametra.com after they completed a $117,500 sale of Avoid.com. Many high end domain sales are paid for in installments over a designated period of time but we cannot chart them until the domain has been fully paid for and transferred to the new owner. Long time readers may recall that I told you about the Avoid.com agreement in March 2017 when the payment plan for the domain began. It has now been completed and takes its place among an elite group of more than 60 six-figure sales that have been completed this year

The .coms went on to sweep the first five spots on the Big Board and 15 of 20 places overall. Sedo rounded out the first five with PickPack.com ($59,000), Payen.com ($28,250) and Esenses.com ($27,999) - and that was just for starters. That trio ignited a run of nine straight chart entries for them and they wound up piling up 14 entries overall. Sedo's haul included the only ccTLD to crash the all extension party this week - #6 QRCO.de at $25,000

The non .com gTLDs took four spots on the honor roll, led by DomainMarket's $14,888 sale of #12 BuyersGuide.org. The other three were all .club sales that were revealed when the .CLUB Registry released a report on their premium domain sales in the first six months of this year.  They sold over $500,000 worth of domains - primarily through their registrar partners - using a combination of payment plan sales and outright purchases (we chart only the completed purchases). They rang our Top 20 bell with GoDaddy's $10,000 sale of #15 (tie) Candy.club and two others sold by Namecheap that tied for #19 - Fix.club and Market.club - at $9,110 each.  

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, November 11, 2018:
