Joystick.com Wins This Week's Domain Sales Race with $65,000 Score at SnapNames

by Ron Jackson

There were no six-figure blockbusters reported this week but there were so many solid five-figure sales they would not all fit on our new Top 20 chart. A sale in that range normally earns a spot on the Big Board but this time out eight domains missed the cut despite hitting the five-figure mark. 

The dearth of six-figure sales is likely to be short lived. Several domains in Moniker.com's live auction at the Internext Expo in Las Vegas Jan. 17 drew bids above $100,000. Once those sales and others from the event are closed, many of them will become eligible for our chart (this was primarily an adult domain auction so some of the names will not be acceptable for our publication). 

Joystick.com rang up an easy win this week after selling for $65,250 at SnapNames.com, a venue that tied Sedo.com for the most chart entries at six apiece. GreatDomains weighed in with four charted domains, including a pair that tied for the #2 spot at $35,000 each; Videocards.com and Frisbee.com. GreatDomains also had one of the two country code domains that crashed the all-extension party, #18 (tie) SexToys.us at $15,000

Sedo claimed the other ccTLD domain, #9 Fashionista.co.uk at 10,140 ($20,089), but their top seller was one of the two .nets that elbowed their way into the crowd of .com domains that dominate the chart. That was Merlin.net, tied for 5th at $30,000. #18 (tie) Lyric.net also landed on the leader board after going for $15,000 at SnapNames.

BuyDomains.com was the only other venue with multiple chart entries, scoring with #5 (tie) TileFloors.com at $30,000 and #16 EntertainmentFurniture.com at $18,000. Elsewhere, SevenT.com Domains acquired #7 250.com for $21,000 in a deal negotiated at DNForum.com and #15 OutdoorWear.com was sold for 9,500 ($18,819) by  LogicalDomains.com.

Here's a look at the complete Top 20 for the week ending Sunday, Jan. 21:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value 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.

Global Contenders (.biz, .info, .mobi, .net & .org)

.Net ruled the Global Contenders chart this week, sweeping the top three spots and 11 of the 22 entries overall (the extra positions coming from a 3-way tie for the final slot). Merlin.net conjured up the extension's most powerful magic with that $30,000 sale at Sedo, made by Merlin Kauffman of True Magic, LLC. The next two spots went to Lyric.net at $15,000 and Connexion.net at $6,888. The latter domain was one of ten GC names sold at BuyDomains, the most for any venue in this category,

.Info nailed down the #4 slot with a nice 3-letter domain sale, NAW.info at 3,500 ($4,558). .Mobi also had a name on the top half of the chart with Hobby.mobi tying for the 9th spot at $2,500. That is the second time hobby.mobi has sold in less than a month! In December it changed hands for $1,345 at Afternic. The buyer immediately put the domain back on the market and made a four-figure profit with the sale at Sedo. 

.Org ruled the rest of the chart, taking all nine of the remaining positions including #5 LKJ.org at $3,488. Here's how all of the GC top sellers stacked up for the week ending January 21:
