Domain Sales Explode with 6 Six-Figure Sales Igniting the Blast - Year's 2 Biggest ccTLD Sales to Date Helped Fuel the Fire
With one of America's biggest holidays - Independence Day (July 4) - sending a lot of people off to the beach or to their barbecue grills early last week, we had so little sales information come in we decided to just wait and combine two weeks of information into one column this week. Turns out that was all just the calm before the storm. Like fireworks on the 4th, a remarkable explosion of big sales lit up the aftermarket sky over the past few days. One of them, Michael's Castello's $1.5 million sale of Room.com, was the subject of our latest Cover Story, published yesterday (July 9).
That one won't be charted for awhile because the the company that bought it will be paying the balance over time - but we still wound up with the year's most bountiful all extension Top 20 Sales Chart - one blessed with a half-dozen six-figure sales, the year's two biggest ccTLD sales to date and one of the year's top five non .com gTLD sales. There were so many five-figure sales we could have filled two charts with them. Sedo set off the biggest blast with a £390,000 ($487,500) sale of BettingOdds.com. A UK-based gaming company bought the domain and they already have a Coming Soon splash page on it - but no information beyond that yet.
The #2 spot on the elite list went to the year's biggest 3-letter .com sale to date - NCC.com at $300,000. It was another feather in the cap of Mark Thomas at VIPBrokerage.com, who already had the year's 2nd biggest sale to date in California.com at $3 million in January (you can see all of the year's Top 100 Sales to date here).
Sedo stepped back into the spotlight with an $188,000 sale of #3 Crystals.com as well as a deal they worked on with Nidoma.com to complete the year's biggest ccTLD sale to date - #4 Viajes.es ("travel" in Spanish) at €147,000 ($166,110). Sedo broker Frank Tillmanns represented the buyer while Nidoma CEO Simone Ferracuti was on the seller's side of that one.
