Good Start for 2024 Domain Sales with Three 6-Figure Sales Topping First Chart of New Year Sales

Our first bi-weekly domain sales chart of the 2024 sales season is here and it looks like buyers made a quick return to the marketplace after the holiday break. Our initial all extension Top 20 Sales Chart is topped by a trio of solid six-figure sales including a $400,000 chart topper, Peace.com, via Sedo. James Booth at DomainBooth.com provided an impressive follow-up, ringing the six-figure bell twice with a pair of single digit .io domains - 7.io at $150,000 and 0.io at $125,000.

Sedo and DomainBooth wound up having the entire first five all to themselves with Sedo adding $74,995 for 13Bet.com and Booth banking $70,000 for Deflect.com. Their hold on the leader board continued with Sedo going on to sweep 13 of 20 entries overall and 

DomainBooth bagging five places. GoDaddy and Afternic finally broke up the two-horse race by taking one spot apiece. Sedo's haul included a $25,000 sale of #12 Brigade.com that the company's newest Premium Domain Broker, Mark Ghoriafi (AKA Mr. Premium), handled on behalf of the seller. 

The .coms started off the new year the same way way they finished the old one - in a dominant position. They piled up 12 chart entries overall. The ccTLDs also had a very strong outing, claiming six spots on the elite list including those two .io blockbusters and a $50,000 sale of #6 (tie) MBA.ai at Sedo. James Booth also added to his already impressive country code haul with a $22,000 sale of #13 (tie) Telehouse.ca. The non .com gTLDs had to settle for two places on the honor roll that came from GoDaddy's $17,750 sale of #17 VHF.org and Afternic's $14,999 sale of #19 TC.law.

One other note. Since this is the first chart of the year it also serves as the Year-to-Date Top Sales Chart, so we have left the 2023 Top 100 Sales Charts in place on our YTD Sales Charts page. When our next sales report comes out February 7, we will move the 2023 Charts to our Domain Sales Archive (where the top 100 charts from all previous years also reside) and replace them on the YTD Charts Page with 2024's first Year to Date Charts.
