2023's Solid Start for Domain Sales Continued With a Pair of 6-Figure Sales Topping Latest Chart

Welcome to our second bi-weekly domain sales report of the new year. The early results from 2023 continue to be promising with two more 6-figure sales topping our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. A $300,000 sale of TXT.com, brokered by Bassir.io, led the way with Braden Pollock at LegalBrandMarketing.com providing solid back up with his $120,000 sale of StoneAge.com

The #3 domain just missed the 6-figure mark. That was a $99,000 sale of ThisAV.com at Sedo. The price for this one likely got a boost from residual traffic looking for a site that once existed on the domain, however Sedo's sale was for the domain only. 

Now that we have a full month of sales data in the books we have just put up our first 2023 YTD Top Sales Charts. Those three charts (an all-extension leader board plus a separate chart for the top ccTLD sales and another for the top Non .com gTLD sales) have been started with 20 entries each. They will expand with each new bi-weekly report until we reach our Top 100  standard for each category (that typically happens around the end of the first quarter). With the arrival of the new charts, the 2022 Top 100 Charts have been moved to their permanent home in our Domain Sales Archive

Returning to the new 2023 sales that have come over the past two weeks, a big ccTLD sale at Sedo - Normal.es at $65,000 - claimed the #4 spot in the Big Board. That was one of three country code domains to crack the all extension Top 20. The non .com gTLDs also took a bow with two entries on the honor roll, led by a $12,000 sale of #16 (tie) Fairplay.online in a private transaction. 

Everything else went to the .coms (16 of the 21 entries overall) with DomainName.com accounting for four of those - all of which landed on the top half of the leader board. Their quartet was led by #5 CloudTech.com at $50,000 and #6 MoveUp.com at $42,000.
