The $1.35 million sale of ebet.com easily took out the chart of top reported domain name sales for the week ending 13 October, eclipsing two other $400,000 plus sales that in most weeks would have topped the charts themselves.
The sale of ebet.com in a private sale is to date the third biggest sale for the year. Coming in second for the week was shout.com, selling for $450,000 (tenth on the yearly sales chart) through WebsiteProperties while teen.xxx was third, and eleventh for the year to date, selling for $400,000 directly through the .xxx registry, ICM Registry.
Overall it was a big week for GoDaddy/Afternic who took out 11 of the top 20 sales while Sedo had five sales. And on the TLD side of things, there were 16 .com sales, two .net and one each for .xxx and .org.
