Spring Begins With Some Big Domain Sales: This Week's Top 3 Total Nearly $750,000 

Now that spring has arrived the temperature isn't the only thing that is warming up. Several high dollar domain sales blossomed this week including a chart topper that ranks among the year's three biggest sales to date, along with the best ccTLD sale thus far in 2017 and the year's highest Non .com gTLD sale (which happened to a be a new gTLD). That made it a week that gave just about everyone something to be happy about.

Asset.com set the pace after changing hands for $406,000 in a sale handled by Dubai-based broker Sharjil Saleem (who represented the seller) that we first told you about in a Lowdown post on Monday. We also detailed the week's 2nd biggest sale - Casino.online at $201,250 - in another Lowdown post last Thursday. Radix teamed up with Sedo to close that new gTLD blockbuster and give the Non .com gTLDs a new 2017 leader. 

In yet another six-figure sale, Uniregistry Market teamed up with AlanAdlari.com to move #3 MNG.com for 520,000 Turkish lira - a cool $141,960 at today's exchange rate. Uniregistry's Arif Sengoren, who is based in Turkey, helped broker the sale to a company that wanted to upgrade from MNG.com.tr (a Turkish country code domain).

Another three-letter domain, #4 FBS.eu, also became a headliner after being sold at Sedo for $43,200. That is the highest price paid for a country code domain so far this year (.eu is the ccTLD for the European Union).

While there was lot of diversity on the leader board the .coms still took the lion's share of entries on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart, sweeping 13 places overall. Those included BQDN's $30,000 sale of Impala.com that rounded out the first five.

The non .com gTLD's claimed four spots with three .orgs joining Casino.online in that category. Michael Mann's DomainMarket booked two of those - #8 AHR.org at $16,000 and #17 (tie) StudentLeadership.org at $8,500. DomainMarket also contributed to the .com cause with #15 (tie) AlwaysATreat.com at $9,888.

That left three spots for the ccTLDs, all filled by Sedo. They also won the venue race with 11 names on the Big Board. Chart honors also went to SnapNames for #7 Yeyehei.com at $17,000, Garage.ist for their $14,496 sale of LivingWith.com and MagnumDomains/GoDaddyAuctions who teamed up to sell #14 TheFQ.com for $10,000.

One other note before we go to the charts. One of the week's most stunning sales was notable not because it was a big one but because it was so low. As you will see in the table of additional sales at Sedo a little further down in this report, DWN.com was sold from a fixed price listing there for just €2,999 ($3,239)! That is an astonishingly low price for a 3-letter .com and it undoubtedly made the buyer in China, who was the first to spot it, deliriously happy. It's a domain that few would have been surprised to see sell for 10-20X that price. That kind of pricing mistake seldom happens but when it does you just know bargain hunters are already sifting through sales listings a lot more carefully hoping lightning strikes again. 

Now on to this week's Big Board. Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 26, 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.

Country Codes

As we noted at the top of this report, the ccTLDs have a new 2017 sales leader to celebrate with Sedo's $43,200 sale of FBS.eu. That was one of three country codes domains you saw on the all extension leader board above. The biggest sale from this group that you haven't seen yet is #4 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Reign.co, a name that MagnumDomains sold through GoDaddy for $7,000.

Golem.eu's $6,479 sale of Elixir.eu rounded out the first five. Sedo took the next four in a row and woun up sweeping 13 of the 20 chart entries. The MagnumDomains/GoDaddy tandem tallied four. DomainLore.co.uk also had multiple entries, hitting the Daily Double with #16 Manicure.co.uk ($4,125) and #17 Pedicure.co.uk ($3,889).

Colombia's .co easily won the extension race with six chart entries. Great Britain's .co.uk was next with three. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 26, 2017:
