    New DNJournal Top 20 Capped By Biggest Cash Sale Ever?

    The new weekly domain sales report is out at DNJournal.com. The headline, of course, is Moniker.com reporting that they have brokered the biggest cash deal in domain history. Even without that $9 million plus deal, it was another solid week for the domain market. Every name on our new Top 20 hit at least five figures. The .nets dominated the new Global Contenders chart, taking 14 of 20 positions and .info also had a strong outing with five. It was also a big week for the country codes as we saw one of the year's 6 biggest sales in the ccTLD category. You can read all about it here:

    Thanks Duke. Pity the exact details behind porn.com didn't come out.

    "Knowledgeable sources say the price paid for the domain would be approximately 5-6 times its annual earnings."

    Apparently moniker had revenue figures at the last auction, it would be interesting to find out exactly. I've heard two different figures in terms of the revenue claim back then, $150,000 per month and $2500 per day average (which would be around half the first figure at $75,000 per month).

    All of them city/state abreviation names I offered $3,000 each for to the previous owner...he told me they are worth way more...now I see he let them drop.

    He sold me a different name though for $5,000 which is worth more of all of those put together.

    The human mind never ceases to amaze me...

    Your domains are never completely worthless. They can always be used as a bad example.

    He must have forgotten to renew them.

    Nah, he's been dropping names for years. I picked up other names of his every year.

    Check out bloomingtonil.com history.

    On the last offer I made him it just doesnt make sense to turn down so much money but I guess hes just some very rich real estate broker and dont really care unless its a massive deal (or just super busy).

    But...he did sell me one for 5,000.

    Just kinda odd and interesting....

    Thanks for another great roundup Ron.

    Gesture.com generated $5,000.
    that seems incredibly cheap.

    I always thought it was a sucky sounding name myself, it seems to have been for sale forever. Having said that the price does still sound low even though it probably doesn't have a lot of obvious usage and is difficult to spell.

    it is odd to see an actual recognizable word, with meaning, go for $5K in 2007

    especially as gesture based input devices are supposed to be the future.

    the leading company in the space will probably opt to use the domain jestr.biz

    I'm so relieved you didn't include .info and .us in this funeral procession....otherwise, I'd feel like joining it myself...

    I forsee an .info resurgence after the .mobi stampede.
