The domain name hg.com sold for a whopping CNYÂ¥26,000,000 ($3,770,000) to not only top the Domain Name Journal chart of top reported sales for the week ending 27 November, but also to easily become the yearâs biggest sale to date.
On year to date sales, the next biggest sale is vivo.com, unearthed and added to the chart in early November, selling for $2.1 million while xxxvideos.com, also a November sale, coming in second selling for $1.368 million. All three were sold in private sales. In all there are five reported million dollar plus sales so far this year â the other two are jade.com ($1.250m) and la.com ($1.200m).
Back to the week ending 23 November, the sale of hg.com dwarfed all other sales and made them look inconsequential. But the previous owners of auto.loan should have been more than happy with the sale of their domain for $45,000 and likewise sanwa.com, which sold for $31,500, with the domains being sold through Undeveloped and Sedo respectively.
On the TLD side of things there were 12 .com sales and six .at sales as a result of the short .at auction in the top 22 (a three-way tie for 20th place) as well as one each for .loan, .be, .review and .us.
