Sedo is reporting that the the domain name blackfridaysales.com has sold for $90,000.

It appears to be have been registered to Frank Schilling’s Name Administration for the last couple of days.

Black Friday is the name given to the day after Thanksgiving in the US, when pre-Christmas sales traditionally kick off. This year, it falls on November 26.

The operator of the domain blackfriday.com, which was a 2001 $10 hand registration, says it received over 18 million unique visitors last year, and that 70% of them were direct type-in visits.

Oddly, blackfriday.info seems to rank better in Google for the search [black friday], for me at least.

Other five figure sales Sedo is currently reporting include valuable.com ($28,500), webengine.com ($50,000), adhoc.com (65,000 euros), rodon.com (20,000 euros), uganda.de (20,000 euros) and littleangels.com ($50,000).

    Nice score for that domain name. Just like the tablet domain names you never what they will be worth in the future. I expect tablet names will be top 5 sought after domain names…

    BlackFriday .info has been operating a real site for some time.

    It was only recently that Kevin Ham’s group started really doing something with BlackFriday .com.

    Prior to that I believe the domain was just parked.

    The Fusible blog has covered the Black Friday domain scene for quite some time in case you would have an interest.

    Assuming 15 million uniques this year

    If 0.1% will buy enough to make Frank $6.00 then it will pay for itself this year.
