Domain Names Sold in 2006 – Top 10 lists sorted by TLD and ccTLD

Top 10 lists over domain name sales in 2006,
sorted by TLD and ccTLD.

Updated 5th January

I’ve tried to create top 10 lists (as far as possible) over the different TLD and ccTLD sales that took place in 2006.
These are verified sales only, but I’ve added a few comments on “rumored” sales and sales where the final sales price hasn’t been 100% verified (yet).

These lists are in no way complete since it’s virtually impossible to find info all domain sales.
Many sales are also protected by NDA’s (non-disclosure agreements) so there are many other domain name sales in the $xx,xxx to $x,xxx,xxx (or even higher) range that also took place in 2007.

Please mail me at post (at) domenenavn (dot) ws if you have any corrections/updates or info on other domain name sales I haven’t listed here yet, and I’ll try to add those as well.

I will update these lists regularly, so please come back to find the most up-to-date versions.

The main source I’ve used is DNJournal.com, the online Domain Industry News Magazine, which I recommend to everyone who’s even only remotely interested in domain names.
I’ve also searched trough old caches of SEDO frontpages (from archive.org), searched through the Afternic sold domains list, dnsaleprice.com, and I’ve also found info on domain name forums like Namepros.com and Dnforum.com and a few other online sources.

You’re not allowed to copy this list and use it on your own site(s).
I’ve spent many hours compiling this info, so please link to this page instead.
Thanks…

So without further introduction, here’s the lists:

Top 10 TLD (Top-level domain) sales

.com domains

Sex.com was reported sold for around $12mill, but the final sales price has never been verified by the buyer/seller.
It’s rumored that AOL have bought Games.com for around $11mill, but nothing verified there as well.
The well known domain investor/web developer Christian (Chris) Chena have verified in his blog that he had reached an agreement to sell Juegos.com to a large European skill games and mobile games company a while ago. The final sales price has still not been made public (NDA), but it’s rumored that it’s in the 7 to 8 figures range (USD).
