This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales.Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both.Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available For the many newcomers entering the domain industry we also want to point out that the reasons why a domain name sells for a certain price can be varied and are not always clear to those who are unfamiliar with the domain market.If you do not understand why specific domain names command the prices they do, you are likely to make unwise domain registrations or purchases.Highlights of public sales include: Top domain overall: at 20,000 USD Top domain: at 20,000 USD Top domain: at 4,000 EUR Top domain: at 1,299 USD Top domain: at 1,300 EUR Top domain: none reported Top domain: at 900 USD Top domain: at 1,400 USD Top cc TLD domain: at 11,000 EUR Top 2 character domain: at 4,700 EUR Top 3 character domain: at 7,000 USD Top 4 character domain: at 8,500 USD Top hyphenated domain: at 2,500 USD Top domain with at least one number: 2at 4,800 USD Top numbers only domain: none reported Top Greek domain: none reported Would you like to see again an analysis like the one I did on a Sedo list from July? Also let me know what other statistics you would like to see every week.: The offices of some of our major sales data suppliers will be closed untuil after New Year's Day and they will be unable to send in sales reports this week as a result. Instead we will bring you fully up to date with a double length column covering two weeks worth of sales that will be out at the end of next week. 2-3 so we will collect sales data those days, then publish our next column on Friday evening, January 4.
