Some Weeks Are Bigger Than Others

Domain Name Journal logoFollowing a couple of editions with some six figure sales, and one seven figure sale, the Domain Name Journal list of top reported sales was a trifle disappointing in the week to 8 June. The top reported sale was suzies.com, selling for $62,050 through GoDaddy/Afternic. Nice for the seller, but not so exciting for the rest of us!

Coming in second was tolo.com, which sold for $40,250 through MediaOptions and then interracialporn.com, which sold for $24,000 through HuntingMoon.

There were 17 .com sales in the top 20. The other three were one each for .org, .co.uk and .com.br, all in the top eight. While on the aftermarket side of things there were 11 sales through Sedo and six through GoDaddy/Afternic.
