Domain Sales Explosion Continues

Domain Sales Explosion Continues – Seven 6-Figure Sales Totaling Over $2.9 Million Top This Week’s Chart
The domain aftermarket turned in another dazzling fortnight over the past two weeks with big sales busting out all over. Seven of those rang the six-figure bell including RightOfThe Dot.com’s chart topper, Tattoo.com, at $812,000. That also ranks as the 6th biggest sale reported so far this year.

 

You might recall that RightOfTheDot (ROTD) put that domain up for sale in a live online auction they staged in late February when it drew a $750,000 winning bid. Unfortunately, the “winner” not only failed to pay for that domain, he also reneged on high bids for both Bird.com ($2.5 million) and Fish.com ($1.6 million), costing everyone involved an enormous amount of wasted time and money. It has also resulted in

the bidder being sued by ROTD and the owner of Fish.com and Bird.com. In the meantime ROTD President Monte Cahn found a new buyer who jumped at the chance to own Tattoo.com and the market has gone on to post a long string of eye-popping sales week after week.

In the #2 sale since our last report, as detailed by Elliot Silver at DomainInvesting.comNameCheap.com Founder & CEO Rick Kirkendall plunked down $550,000 to add Wolf.com to the company’s ever-growing collection of premier domain names. James Booth at DomainBooth.com filled the #3 spot with a sale that, big as it was at $440,000 (paid in Bitcoin), must have hurt at least a little. After all, it would be tough for any lover of domains named James to give up James.com – but a price like that does have a way of persuading people! Rounding out the first four is another 400K plus sale – Snappy.com at $415,000 (another hat tip to Elliot for filling in the back story on that deal handled by GetYourDomain.com’s Larry Fischer (representing the seller) and the GoDaddy Brokerage, who represented the buyer).

The six-figure sales did not stop there. Shane Kinsch (who sold FTA.com for $400,000 in March) hit another home run with #5 Bico.com at $350,000Sedo banked $181,500 for CopyMarkets.com and RightOfTheDot rang the bell again with ExchangeRates.com at $180,000.

 

While those .coms were blowing the roof off the place, the ccTLDs also had another great outing led by .io, a red hot extension that accounted for four of the five country sales that earned places on the Big Board. The biggest of those was #8 Avatar.io at $89,999 and #9 Ruby.io at $88,000. DomainBooth also posted one of the .io sales, collecting $45,000 for #16 Club.io. The one charted ccTLD sale that wasn’t a .io was #19 ESN.co.uk – sold through SamCharles.com for £20,000 ($28,200).

 

The non .com gTLDs were limited to one spot on the elite list  but it was an impressive one. They can thank RightOfTheDot for that. One of ROTD’s four charted sales is #13 Organizations.org at $52,500 – a sale that ranks as the category’s 3rd biggest sale of the year to date.

We have tipped our hat to George Kirikos for newly discovered domain sales information so many times the brims are worn off all of our hats! Still we owe him yet another one for finding the March 2021 sale of #15 Cuentas.com (“accounts” in Spanish) at $47,000 in an SEC filing. Even more intriguing than that, George found evidence in another filing of Elevate Credit making a domain sale of $1.25 million but the mystery (as he he noted in this tweet and a follow-up tweet) is what domain was it? George’s question about that to Elevate Investor Relations has gone unanswered so that one remains to be unmasked.

Here’s how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, May 9, 2021:

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

While .com sales always draw more attention because of their bigger numbers, there is no hiding the fact that ccTLD sales have also been on fire this year – especially those of current darling .io. The past two weeks has been no exception with 17 of the 20 entries on our latest Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart hitting five figures and the top two flirting with six! Those were Avatar.io at $89,999 and Ruby.io at $88,000 (both in private transactions). The top four sales and six of the top seven were .io domains.

All of those .io sales cut into Sedo’s traditional overwhelming dominance of this chart a bit, but they still had far more entries than anyone else, piling up nine spots on the honor roll, including a .io sale of their own – #17 Coders.io at $10,000. The big guns for Sedo were #8 GE.de at $21,780 and #9 Scout.vc at $18,150.

It was actually a much more diverse couple of weeks than the .io surge would suggest. 11 different extensions earned chart entries. The only ones other than .io to take more than one place were .co.uk with three and .vc with two. Here is how the top ccTLD sales stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, May 9, 2021:

Non .com gTLDs (.net, .org and others, including new gTLDs)

The Non .Com gTLDs were limited to a trio of five-figure sales but the best of those, RightOfTheDot’s $52,500 sale of Organizations.org, is an especially notable one. That is the second biggest .org sale reported so far this year (the Non .com gTLD YTD Top 100 is the second chart on the page linked to) and the 3rd biggest non .com gTLD sale. It also, of course, tops our latest bi-weekly Non.Com gTLD Top 20 Sales Chart.

Just as the .io’s stole the spotlight on the ccTLD Top 20 Chart, the .xyz domains did the same in this category. Thanks to .xyz specialist Swetha Yenugula at DNGear releasing their April sales this week, .xyz was able to pile up nine entries on the leader board with #2 Genesis.xyz at $21,399 leading the way.

The always strong .orgs also showed up in a big way again, taking four of the top five chart entries and seven places overall. Sedo accounted for six of those .org sales, including a couple of nice 3-letter sales – ZEF.org and ZRI.org – at $8,800 apiece. Here is how all of the non .com gTLD sales stacked up for the two weeks ending ending Sunday, May 9, 2021:
