People love to meet online and that fact helped Rick Latona close a $100,000 sale of MeetPeople.com this week to take the #1 spot on weekly Top 20 sales chart. SearchEngines.com ran a close second at $92,500. Moniker.com had auctioned that domain off at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West in February but the deal wasn’t completed until this week.
Sedo.com put more names on the Big Board than any other venue, claiming eight spots including #3 Sexkontakt.com at â¬40,000 ($62,280). Sedo’s roster included an IDN at #11, SociÃ©tÃ©s.com at â¬8,404 ($13,085) and they also put two ccTLDs on the elite list, #13 Medicamentos.es (“medicines” in Spanish) at â¬7,100 ($11,056) and #15 (tie) ManchesterNews.co.uk at $10,000.
