.CO.UK Comes Out to Play

As the New Year gets underway, several large .co.uk domain sales have already been completed, proving the .co.uk is anything but second-rate.

As seen in DNJournal’s industry-wide list of Top 20 domain sales for the last week of January, the .co.uk finds itself in quite a nice predicament.

Of the leading 20 transactions comprised of eleven country codes, the .co.uk ranked at the top of the elite list with three completed sales. The .de, normally the most successful ccTLD, rated second place with two high-profile sales. In this last week of January, 90% of the top 20 domains reported were sold through Sedo’s marketplace.

January saw a number of other notable sales take place on Sedo’s system, as can be seen in the graph below:
