The sale of ice.com last month for a whopping $3.5 million, brokered by Grit Brokerage/Brannans, to Intercontinental Exchange, who currently use theice.com as their home online and where ice.com is currently redirecting, was the top reported domain name sale for the week ending 15 July.
According to the Domain Name Journal chart of top reported sales of all time, a chart that has been compiled since 2003, it would be the 14th biggest sale ever and the biggest since the November 2016 sale of HG.com for CNY ¥26,000,000 (then $3,770,000). The largest reported sale to date is sex.com, which sold for $13 million.
Coming in a tie for second was the sale of sleeping.com and snoring.com, brokered by the Buckley Media Group, for $502,225 each. In practically any other week these 2 sales would have come in first. But this wasn’t any other week! But the 6-figure sales don’t end there. There were 2 more with the sale of nwm.com and seva.com in private sales, selling for $325,000 and $310,000 respectively.
On the aftermarket side of things, Sedo then took out places 6 to 19, which was 14 sales for the week. On the TLD side of things, .com dominated more than usual with 16 sales and one each for .co.uk, .co, .de and .org.
