Listed below are updates on the top ten domain sales from a year ago, as ranked by DN Journal.
1. MikiHouse.com sold for $224,224
This big sale was an upgrade from MikiHouse.co.jp and MikiHouse-USA.com, where separate & distinct sites are still live. Part of the reason for the high price was that the domain was in use by a company promoting its breath freshening products. The current MikiHouse describes itself as “dedicated to making the world a better place for children and their families. As such, we’ve branched out from children’s wear into publishing, child rearing support, sports sponsorship, and a whole variety of fields.” This site is the traffic leader for the week, with its Alexa rank near 2.9 million.
2. 1.xyz sold for $181,720
4. 66.xyz sold for $65,450
6. 51.xyz sold for $46,200
7. 11.xyz sold for $42,812
8. YM.xyz sold for $39,424
9. 98.xyz sold for $35,728
10. HK.xyz sold for $34,496
Seven of the top ten sales this week are .xyz names, all of which were part of a sale on the West.cn platform. These seven sales amount to just over $445,000, yet none of the domains resolve, and all appear to be owned by Chinese investors.
3. CUN.com sold for $128,380
No site resolves, and it’s owned by an individual in China.
5. ITJobs.eu sold for $62,150
A simple “I” is live, as shown below, and it’s another buy from the folks behind the developed Jobs.bg. They spent a bunch of money last year on domains, as we’ve recently discussed their acquisitions of ITJobs.de, Career(s).eu, and Career.net.
