Listed below are updates to the top 10 domain sales from a year ago this week, as ranked by DN Journal.
1. QNB.com sold for $1,000,000
Who would’ve thunk that an LLL.com with a Q would have sold for a cool million. You’ve gotta know who you’re negotiating with, and it helps to be an unmotivated seller. In this case, the buyer was Qatar National Bank, and the seller was QNB Bank, a bank based in Pennsylvania that appears to have 11 branches. The buyer is using the domain as an upgrade from QNB.com.qa. The domain is the traffic leader for the week by a long shot, with its Alexa rank near 35,000.
“Qatar National Bank (QNB Group) was established in 1964 as the country’s first Qatari-owned commercial bank, has an ownership structure split between the Qatar Investment Authority (50%) and the private sector (50%). QNB currently operates in more than 27 countries across 3 continents. “
2. Apps.mobi sold for $20,000
