    Travel domain sells for $50,000 to lead Go Daddy sales last month.

    Go Daddy Auctions is reporting 32,767 domain names sold in December.

    The top sale was VisitSanFrancisco.com, a domain sold by Marchex. The $50,000 purchase was made by San Francisco Travel Association, which owns SanFrancisco.travel.

    Other top sales include:

    league.com $40,005
    zodia.com $35,421
    silvergate.com $22,000 – purchased by Silvergate Bank in Southern California. The bank’s site is SilvergateBank.com.
    beats.us $18,000 – bought by law firm, likely for a client

    Cancer.info and Loans.info were part of the Afilias .info auction. The domains were claimed as part of the .info sunrise over a decade ago, but the trademark claims were later ruled invalid.

    As always, “Online” was by far the most popular term included in sold domains.
