The domain name aftermarket started off in unusual style with the .se domain tv.se selling for SEK2,180,500 ($265,149) through Tradera, a Swedish online commerce service.
The sale easily topped the Domain Name Journal chart of reported sales for the fortnight to 18 January with izy.com second, selling for $40,000 in a private sale while a pair of domains sold through Sedo, putzfrau.de and babycity.com, sold for â¬32,000 ($36,480) and $35,000 respectively.
As usual, .com sales dominated the chart with 12 of the top 20 while there was one each for .se, .de, .net, .es, .info, .vn, org and .ca.
And also as usual Sedo topped the list as an aftermarket outlet with a more than usually dominant 16 of the top 20 sales.
