Sedo Weekly Domain Sales Recap
Each week, the online domain marketplace Sedo.com releases a list of their top public domain sales of $2,000 USD or higher (private sales are not reported). This chart is separated into three sections, the .COM domains, the ccTLDs (Country Code Top-Level Domains) and lastly, the Other domains, which represents the .ORG, .NET and other gTLDs.
This Sedo Weekly Public Domain Sales Recap covers public domain transactions from December 9 to December 15, 2019. We start off the .COM section of this recap with the top sale of the week, as xchange.com traded hands at a healthy $42,077 USD. This was followed up by five more auctions that hit a 5-figure price tag, including oakbrook.com ($13,500 USD), flyaware.com ($12,999 USD), lyckost.com (12,175 EUR), buyship.com ($10,000 USD), and vegasnightclubs.com ($10,000 USD), while the double-letter kknow.com just missed at $9,995 USD. Other notable domain transactions featured the single-words maleo.com ($9,000 USD) and hostile.com ($8,250 USD), the pronounceable/first-name zunya.com ($8,300 USD), the 4-letter mgcv.com ($5,500 USD), and the two-word solarenergie.com (7,500 EUR). In all, we counted a total of 35 .COM transactions of $2,000 or higher this week, which falls right at the bottom edge of the 35, 38, and 41 qualifier range from our prior three Sedo recaps.
The ccTLD section begins with the short-form meds.co checking in with a price tag of 18,750 EUR, and was followed by two other 5-figure domain sales in thistledown.ca ($15,495 USD) and 6w.cc ($10,000 USD). Last week, the .DE extension took this section over by storm, but this time out we’ve got a nice mix of ccTLDs, including nice subsequent sales like rocca.it (8,000 EUR) and bet.be (8,000 EUR), while it takes until the sixth spot on the Sedo ccTLD list to find a .DE in the form of amoremio.de at only 4,000 EUR. Overall, this week’s chart featured 16 ccTLD domain sales that reached a price of at least $2K (which is below the range of 20, 22, and 26 similar transactions from the prior 3 recaps), with the country extension leaders sorting out in this order: .DE (5 listings), .CO (2), .CO.UK (2), and then single entries for .AT, .BE, .CA, .CC, .IT, .PL, and .SI.
The Other section of the Sedo chart gets off to a surprising start, as not only do we have a 5-figure price to report, but it’s also for a domain that doesn’t end in either .NET or .ORG. The Other market leader was less.app, which sold for more than expected at an even $12,000 USD, but that was the beginning and the end of the new gTLD offensive. After that it’s all .NET and .ORG, headed by vdz.org ($8,800 USD), xps.net ($7,499 USD), and street.org (4,999 EUR), while the premium 3-letter combo of rds.org looked like a comparative steal at only 2,000 EUR. Obviously the old guard ruled the roost again this week, and handily won both the total domain number and the total dollar value challenges. We tallied 7 domain sales in this week’s Other section, which is at the top of the 5, 7, and 4 transaction range from our last 3 weekly updates.
