WorldAccelerator.com has compiled the top 20 domain sales since 2000. It is important to note that this data is compiled from a variety of public sources only. Therefore the numbers do not include private sales that happen between parties and are not disclosed. Private sales are often high price sales between high profile parties where the parties prefer to have the transaction price not disclosed. The names below are names where we attribute the bulk of the sale price to the domain name.
We used multiple sources to compile our list. For anyone interested in doing more research we have listed several helpful other resources.
