Three-Word .Com Goes for Nearly $400,000 to Take a Spot Among Year's 3 Biggest Sales to Date

BoatsForSale.com has docked at the top of our  

latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. With a price tag of $396,769 that domain also ranks as the third biggest domain sale reported so far this yearElliot Silver at DomainInvesting.com found the sale and price in a government SEC filing last week. The buyer, a public company called OneWater Marine Inc., is preparing a new website for the domain, teasing "A Better Way to Buy and Sell Boats" on their Coming Soon landing page.

 

Fibr.com fills the #2 slot on the new leader board after changing hands for $75,000 in a sale first reported by Raymond Hackney at TLDInvesting.com. Raymond noted that domain 

had been acquired for just $3,800 in the 2019 NamesCon Europe domain auction - producing a phenomenal return on investment in a very short period of time. The buyer is a British company called Lendflo.

Yancy Naughton, the founder of HasTraffic.com and operator of Namerific.com, reeled in a big one with #3 Worm.com at $60,000 and that wasn't his only bite. HasTraffic/Namerific put another one on the Big Board with #18 (tie) Fowlers.com at $15,000.

Sedo rounded out the first four after collecting $50,000 for Capsules.com. They went on to pile up eight of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a tie for the final position). All of Sedo's sales were .coms, helping the world's most popular extension fill 18 of the 21 rungs on the ladder.

Michael Mann's DomainMarket provided the second half of a powerful one-two punch for the .coms by putting six more on the honor roll, including his $49,950 sale of #6 SPCM.com - an eye-popping price for a four-letter acronym.

The biggest non .com sale came from James Booth at DomainBooth.com who rang up $49,995 for Sun.io - one of two ccTLDs to earn spots on the elite list. The other one was Canadian domain Fanatics.ca that went for $20,000 in a private transaction. 

That left one spot for the non .com gTLDs and for the second week in a row Shaun Wilkinson and Nidoma.com put up in the biggest sale in that group. Last time out they did it with Energy.cloud at $50,000. This time Shaun went back to the .cloud well again and came up with a 20,300 ($23,954) sale of #11 Power.cloud.

Here's how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, August 30, 2020:
