    The new weekly domain sales report is out at DNJournal.com. Domains are one of the few products that buyers often pay more for in order to get less! Domains are, of course, made up of letters and/or numbers and the ones that have the fewest characters often sell for the most money. Shorter name are highly valued because they are easy to remember, making them great brand names, and easy to type into a browser address bar, cutting down on the chance of typos that send would be visitors to the wrong destination. The latest example of “slim always being in” when it comes to domains is the $110,000 sale of a .com numeric domain that tops our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. The .coms went on to sweep 15 of the 20 chart entries but the ccTLDs also had a good outing, taking the other five spots (that left the non .com gTLDs with no room at the inn). You can get all of the details here: https://www.dnjournal.com/archive/domainsales/2019/20190410.htm

    3 reported "newer" TLD sales this week and one of those was a registry sale
    Yes Namebio likely shows some low $XXX sales but low $XXX sales don't pay the bills on premium renewals.
    Namestat.org shows ~23 million nTLDs so ~442 THOUSAND renewals / week

    EXLdot com for 10K is very interesting in the sense of whats happening in the market. Those letters could mean Extra Large so it even has some potential. Anyone know the back story?

    Maybe seller was desperate? Accepted slightly lower offer? We don't know.

    The sale took place at Sedo, and to place a bid > 10K you have to be a verified bidder... that must be the reason.
