Action.com Sells for $230,000 and a .CA Breaks Into the Top 10

By on July 30, 2008

A few quick updates before I lead you to the DNJournal sales report:

  • I’m back from a great family vacation in Texas and have a ton of work to catch up on, bear with me!
  • If anyone would like to get some great exposure for their business or blog, DotSauce is currently accepting guest post article submissions related to domain names and/or development.
  • My available domains newsletter subscribers received another list of high quality available domains last night, many of which have already been registered.

Action.com Sells for $230,000

The new weekly domain sales report is out at DNJournal. The top dog this week was a one-word .com domain that attracted close to a quarter of a million dollars in one of the year’s 20 biggest sales. We expanded our usual Top 20 chart to make way for another wave of completed live auction sales. .Com wound up claiming 23 of the 30 positions but the country codes fared well again, taking four spots on the all extension leader board. A Canadian three-letter ccTLD soared all the way to the #6 position. The top chart also sported a pair or .nets (one ranking #3 overall) and a .org. You can get all of the details at the DNJournal sales report.

GMX.ca Sells for €20,000 ($31,200)

Position #6 on the DNJournal sales report is held for the first time by a .CA domain sale. GMX has something to do with language translation standards and is also a German email company, though I’m not sure why exactly this specific domain fetched such a high price. Nonetheless an impressive sale and great exposure for the Canadian ccTLD.
