Sex.com Sale Goes Through For Biggest Weekly Sale

Domain Name Journal logoThe much reported sale of sex.com finally was processed and predictably easily led the weekly Domain Name Journal sales chart in the week to 14 November. The sale of sex.com through Sedo is easily the largest cash only sale for a domain name ever surpassing previous sales such as Fund.com (sold for $9,999,950 in 2008) and the sale of sex.com, reportedly for $12 million five years ago although as Domain Name Journal notes was a cash/stock deal.

All other sales paled into insignificance, unless you were the seller or purchaser, with no other sales breaking the six-figure barrier. Adhoc.com was second on the list selling for €65,000 ($87,750) followed by webengine.com ($50,000).

The top 20 sales chart was dominated by Sedo taking the top 11 spots and 18 of the top 20.

The highest sale for a non-.COM domain was hämorrhoiden.de, selling for €19,472 ($26,287).
