Trio of Six-Figure Sales (one Topping a Half Million Dollars) Headline This Week's Domain Sales Report 

Spring is still a couple of weeks away but impressive domain sales continue to blossom at a variety of venues. Heritage Auctions closed several sizeable sales made at the live auction they staged last month at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, including three that smashed through the six-figure barrier. That trio, led by NL.com at $575,000, fills the first three slots on this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. NL.com also ranks as the third biggest sale reported so far this year.

HA claimed the next two spots on this week's elite list with Classic.com at $172,500 and 8.co at $115,000. 8.co is the 2nd biggest ccTLD sale so far in 2015, trailing only SE.TV (a name that sold for $265,149 in January). Rounding out the first five are NameJet's $69,200 sale of #4 Buying.com and another HA sale - #5 SIE.com at $27,600.

That SIE.com sale is one of eight three-letter .coms on the leader board as short .com domains continue a phenomenal hot streak. NameJet accounted for six of those three-letter sales, including #6 YRY.com at $25,022 en route to piling up 10 of the 20 chart entries overall.

It was a huge week in general for the .coms as they swept 18 chart positions, leaving just one spot each for the ccTLDs and the non .com gTLDs. The latter group was represented by Sedo's $13,000 sale of #11 Legend.net

While NameJet, Heritage Auctions and Sedo dominated the leader board, DomainsNext.com slipped into the one spot they missed, planting their flag at #13 with 0328.com at $12,000

Here is how all of the sales leaders stack up for the week ending Sunday, March 1:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value cash only sales that have been reported to us in the past week. This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales. Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both. Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available here.

Country Codes

No doubt about who was king of the ccTLD hill this week after that blockbuster $115,000 sale of 8.co at Heritage Auctions. The next two spots on this week's Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart went to Sedo who also scored with a .co at #2 - banking $9,180 for Moon.co. #3 GoodGame.co.za generated another $5,550 for them.

NameJet rounded out the first five with a pair of .tv domains - 20.tv and 30.tv - that tuned in $5,000 each. Sedo then filled the next eight places in a row on their way to taking 16 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a tie for the final opening). That run started with #6 Lace.eu at $4,163.

Germany's .de easily won the extension race with six chart entries, including three in the top ten, led by #7 Additive-Manufacturing.de at $4.007.

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 1:
