Summer Sales Siesta Leaves Room for the TheRide.com to Rise to Top of the Chart

We're in the middle of summer now and it looks like all of the high end domain shoppers have gone to the beach. None of the verified sales reported over the past two weeks reached $40,000, leaving room on the upper reaches on our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart for low five figure sales to take a rare turn in the spotlight. The primary beneficiary was TheRide.com, a domain that was able to claim the top spot with a $38.150 sale at Sedo.

Non .com domains also typically gain a higher profile when overall prices are down and that was the case this time out with six ccTLDs and a pair of non .com gTLDs taking places 

on the Big Board. The highest of those was Sedo's $33,000 sale of Apprenticeships.org. A pair of .ai domains, riding the current artificial intelligence wave, led the charge for the country code domains. #3 Shark.ai went for $28,000 and #5 Litmus.ai landed $24,000 in private transactions.  

Still, with a $25,000 sale of Clavi.com sandwiched between those two, the .coms went on to pile up a dozen entries overall, allowing the world's most popular TLD to retain its customary majority position. AscendDomains.com helped the .com cause with a $13,888 sale of #13 QQPoker.com, as did Dynadot with a $10,000 sale of #17 (tie) PornAI.com.

While the non .com gTLDs were limited to twp chart entries, both .orgs, that $33,000 sale of Apprenticeships.org is the 6th biggest sale in that category so far this year (The 2023 Non .Com gTLD Top 100 Chart is the third chart on the page linked to).

One of the more interesting ccTLD sales was a rare chart appearance for a .net.au domain. SapoBlue.com.au pulled that rabbit out of the hat by moving XM.net.au for AUD 27,500 ($18,425).
