Sedo Tops Domain Industry Sales Charts in 2013

Leading Marketplace Books Nearly Twice as Many Top 100 Sales as Nearest Competitor and Four Times More Non-.Com Sales

Sedo, the world’s largest domain marketplace and monetization provider, maintained its market leading position in 2013, according to the Top 100 Domain Sales Chart as published by the domain industry publication, DN Journal.  With 34 of the top 100 sales, totaling more than $4.5M in transactions, Sedo nearly doubled the number of sales achieved by the next most active marketplace, which closed 19 of the year’s top 100 sales.

“2013 was another landmark year for Sedo where the quality and depth of our marketplace, and talent and knowledge of our team shone through once again to lead the industry through some significant changes,” said Sedo’s CEO, Tobias Flaitz.  “We’re especially encouraged by the number of sales Sedo powered as we head into the first full year where new TLDs will be available.  With hundreds of new extensions hitting the market this year, 2013 may be the last time we see .com extensions dominate top sales lists.”

In 2013, .com domains accounted for 83 percent of the top 100 names sold.  There were 17 transactions among the top 100 sales, comprised of eight different extensions including .ca, .de and .xxx.  Sedo led the industry in non-com transactions with eight sales on the top 100 list, four times more than its nearest competitor.  These sales accounted for more than $1M in transactions, a higher value than the sum of all sales on all other marketplaces.
Sedo closed the year maintaining its leadership position among all public marketplaces in volume and value, and by preparing the most comprehensive suite of services for buyers and sellers of new gTLDs.  For more information on Sedo’s new gTLD services for registries, investors and end users, visit
