Sedo, the domain name marketplace and monetization provider, today announced its 2014 list of the highest-valued public domain sales of the year.
Leading the list is MM.com, which closed at $1.2 million stealing the top honors from True.com at $350,000. In this year’s list ccTLDs also made a splash , with kaffee.de at €100,000 (“coffee” in German), chat.fr at €99.999 (“cat” in French) and musik.de at €99.999 (“music” in German).
These were the highest public domain name sales at Sedo in 2014:
1) mm.com 1,200,000 US-Dollar
2) true.com 350,000 US-Dollar
3) malls.com 320,000 US-Dollar
4) flashcards.com 250,000 US-Dollar
5) gab.com 200,002 US-Dollar
6) cornerstonehomes.com 150,000 US- Dollar
7) kaffee.de 100,000 Euro
8) chat.fr 99,999 Euro
8) musik.de 99,999 Euro
9) vitaminc.com 104,000 US-Dollar
10) credits.com 100,000 US-Dollar
Hmmm, Sedo is not a leader anymore. High value domain name sellers use different brokers. It is clear that Sedo is using just their “network” to wait for inquiries to make some deals, without actually doing anything more. I still don’t get it why Sedo was for couple years in row awarded by Broker of the Year Award at TRAFFIC.
Sure it is not a leader but most if not all of these sales were brokered by Sedo.
Sedo has active brokers doing work on a few premium domains.
Look, first place is mm.com, sold to domainer, so there was no active search I believe, otherwise we would see a different kind of buyer there. Second place is just $350k. Well, that is not that much when it comes to the entire year, right?
In your opinion, who is a leader when it comes to high value premium names?
Actually I think that most domains are sold in private transactions so we never learn about them unless someone notices a whois change.
Other than that there are a few broker houses doing some good work.
And yes, $350k is not much but the are only the public sales. From the weekly sales I am following I am sure that there are tens on 5 and 6 figure sales that are private at Sedo in 2014.

Would you mind to name some that are your top personal choice?
I have not used any so it is only what I am hearing and I would rather not say.
You can found a few here.
Nice to see 3 of top 10 are country code domains. Maybe we’ll see a few new gtlds in that list in one year?
Credits.com seems cheap imo
