Spanish language domain name tops Sedo’s weekly charts.
It’s an interesting week when Sedo’s top domain name sale is only 25,000 EUR (about $35,000 USD). It’s even more interesting when that domain name is a Spanish language .net. But this past week Moviles.net took the crown at Sedo. “Moviles” means mobile in Spanish, and the domain name appears to have been used as a web site before being purchased. It is now temporarily parked at GoDaddy.
Although we all like to see headline splashing sales, sometimes when there aren’t any it helps us focus on the real gut of the domain name market — sales under $10,000. So here are some observations about this past week’s sales at Sedo:
It’s been an eternity since I’ve noticed a .ws domain name sale. But Sedo sold Casinos.ws for $2,000, a nice price for the Somoa country code domain. .Ws is an example of a failed country code branding.
You never know how much .us domains will sell for – good .us domains will sometimes crack the four figure mark. What’s amazing is seeing a mediocre .us domain name — workboots.us — sell for $2,400. It’s proof that there’s always the right buyer for your names. Oh, and Stat.us sold for $2,000.
enopoly.com sold for $4,000. Perhaps it’s these guys, which have suffered under the use of a .net domain name?
