Mojo.com Gets Its Mojo With $300,000 Sale

Domain Name Journal logoMojo.com certainly has… it’s mojo! It was the top domain name sale in the fortnight to 10 February, selling for $300,000 through Domain Advisors, making it one of a trio of six-figure sales for the week.

Second was Apuestas.com (“bets” in Spanish) which sold for €165,000 ($221,100), which sold through Sedo and third was mobile.xxx, which Domain Pulse previously noted sold for $160,000 in a premium sale through ICM Registry.

Overall there were 28 .com sales in the top 40 chart, one sale was removed to remain anonymous, as well as two .org and .net sales and one each for .xxx, .co, .it, .pl, .info, .me and .de.

Sedo once again topped the list of the most popular marketplace, but as it has been in the last 12 months, the company has seen increased competition, particularly from Go Daddy Auctions with eleven of the week’s sales and Afternic with seven and NameJet four.

Two Six Figure Sales Keep Aftermarket Humming

Domain Name Journal logoTwo six-figure sales kept the domain name aftermarket humming in the second last Domain Name Journal sales chart for 2012.

Line.com and glamorous.com sold for $118,000 and $115,000 through DomainNameSales and DomainNameSales/Domain Advisors respectively in the week to 16 December.

Third on the list of top reported sales was fobo.com, which sold for $57,500, also through Domain Name Sales, which either on their own or in conjunction with DomainAdvisors accounted for the top 11 sales and 16 of the top 20 sales. A result that 12 months ago would have been the sole domain of Sedo. In this week’s chart the formerly dominant Sedo accounted for only two sales, the same as Afternic.

On the TLD side of things, there were 16 .com sales, two for .net and one each for .ch and .ca.
