$350,000 Deal Leads First Wave of Completed Sales From the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West Auction 

This week Moniker.com reported their first wave of completed sales from last month's live and silent auctions at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West conference in Las Vegas. The high bids had been reported shortly after the conference ended, but we do not chart sales until domains have been paid for and transferred to their new owners. That process was completed for over three dozen domains this week including one six-figure blockbuster, Greeting.com at $350,000. That ranks as the 4th highest sale reported so far in 2007.

To make sure that sales from other venues over the past week are not lost in the flood of completed auction sales, we expanded this week's leader board from the usual 20 positions to 30 entries. Even then, the widely promoted auctions produced 9 of the 10 top sales on the Big Board. If you take out the sales from that special event, Afternic.com/BuyDomains.com (and their new ActiveExchange platform), would have accounted for three of the top four sales. Their flag bearer was Infusion.com, a name that sold for $25,000 to tie for 5th.

By Ron Jackson

If you backed out the Moniker auction sales, SnapNames.com, Sedo.com and Enom's Club Drop all would have had top ten entries this week. The SnapNames roster was led by #13 SinusInfections.com at $15,049, Sedo's list was topped by #18 EHD.com at $13,000 and Club Drop's marquee name was #21 Outrage.com at $12,400

.Com accounted for 25 of the 30 charted domains. The remaining positions went to a .mobi, a .org, a .ca (Canadian country code) and a pair of .nets. #12 MusicVideos.mobi was the leading non .com domain, attracting $16,500 at the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. auction. Incidently, two other auction domains would have made the chart if they had not been sold in a package (making it impossible to assign values to the individual domains). That was the matching set of Wind.com and Wind.net that went for $80,000

Here's a look at the complete leader board for the week ending Sunday, April 1:

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)

It was another good week for the Global Contenders with the top four domains from this category making the all extension Top 20 you saw earlier. MusicVideos.mobi led the way at $16,500 but .net claimed the lion's share of the chart, taking 13 of the 20 entries. Starting with #3 FAQ.net ($12,500), that extension grabbed seven positions in a row. SnapNames accounted for two of best ones, #5 Offers.net at $7,501 and #6 Subscriptions.net at $6,300

.Org occupies four slots including #2 with Avid.org, sold by ICAN Concepts for $13,750. The remaining three positions went to .mobi with SouthAmerica.mobi ($3,100) and Beat.mobi ($3,000) rounding out the mobile extension's trio.

Here's how all of the GC top sellers stacked up for the week ending April 1:

There were 30 more four-figure GC sales just off the chart and Afternic/BuyDomains accounted for a dozen of those including WhitePapers.org ($2,288), Denim.net ($2,000) and SchoolHouse.net ($1,800). FantasyWear.net fetched $1,488 while Cosmopolis.net and NatureFirst.net notched $1,200 each.

Country Codes

Canada occupies the penthouse suite on our new Country Code chart thanks to the $13,550 sale of Hollywood.ca at Afternic/BuyDomains. In this case, the buyer apparently intends to present .ca as meaning California rather than the Canadian ccTLD it represents.  Canada also scored with #4 LiveActive.ca, sold for $4,700, also at Sedo.

Three other extensions also had two chart entries each; .tv (Tuvalu), .de (Germany) and .us (United States). #5 TravelGuide.tv ($3,500) led the way for the video extension, #7 Gaestebuecher.de ("guest books" in German) was the top .de at 2,300 ($3,065) and #11 ComputerRepair.us ($2,000) was the USA's standard bearer. By the way, Afternic/BuyDomains reported that they have disbursed the funds for that big $75,000 sale of Video.us we told you about last week, but the Public Whois record still shows no change of ownership so we remain unable to chart this domain.

The other countries represented this week were Taiwan (.tw), India (.in), the European Union (.eu) and China (.cn). Here's a look at the complete Country Code chart for the week ending April 1:
