Dec 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Domain Sale and Parking Tips, Domains Marketing News
The four-day Thanksgiving weekend gave most Americans a very short work week last week but the domain aftermarket continued full steam ahead, producing two of the year’s 30 biggest sales to date. In a private transaction the owners of HomeInsurance.com reported they have acquired HomeOwnersInsurance.com for a whopping $570,000 – the 11th biggest cash sale reported for far in 2010. 

The AfternicDLS weighed in with another six-figure blockbuster as they completed the $297,500 sale of Hobbies.com. That ranks as the #26 sale year to date and it the biggest 2010 sale reported by the AfternicDLS, topping a pair of $250,000 sales they logged in February for Biking.com and Boating.com.

HomeOwnersInsurance.com and Hobbies.com easily led our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. At $43,500, the #3 domain, Wuye.com, was a quarter of a million dollars behind the domain above it. However that sale at Sedo.com kicked off a huge run for that popular venue as they swept 10 consecutive positions and went on to take 16 of 20 places on the Big Board overall.

Sedo’s roster included all eight of the country code domains that muscled their way onto the elite list, including a trio that landed on the top half of the leader board; #5 Like.me ($26,500), #7 Yoyo.it ($23,400) and #10 Contacts.me ($15,600). .ME represents Montenegro but is available for worldwide registration. .IT is the ccTLD for Italy. After being featured in a special Sedo auction a total of five .ME domains made the Top 20. 

The .coms still managed to take the most chart entries, accounting for all 12 of the remaining positions. That left the non .com gTLDs out in the cold. None from  that category even reached the five-figure mark this week.
