Sedo Rings Up One of the Year's Five Biggest Sales to Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart 

Though the year is still young we've already seen a lot of impressive domain sales, the latest coming this week when Sedo banked $300,000 for Heika.com. That ranks as the fifth biggest sale reported so far in 2015. Sedo completed a nice one-two punch with another six-figure sale, moving Anker.com for a cool $130,000

Sedo went on to sweep the first four entries on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart (and 15 of 20 places overall) including the week's biggest non .com gTLD sale with #3 Checks.net at $24,500 (that is also the year's 4th biggest sale in that category).

Rounding out the first five are #4 OnlineChat.com ($24,000 at Sedo) and #5 LoveCrafts.com, a name that MostWantedDomains sold for an even $20,000

Two other venues scored top ten entries - in fact Fllppa.com had a pair of them with Procrastination.com and XV.net landing in the middle of a four-way tie for the #10 spot after changing hands for $10,000 each. WeAreHealthy.com was also part of that logjam after being sold by IAmPowerful.com. 

The .coms piled up 16 of the 20 chart entries, leaving two places each for the non .com gTLDs and the ccTLDs. All four of those non .com domains landed in the top ten with Sedo putting Ofen.de in the 7th slot at $17,100 and Infor.nl in the next position at $11,400

By Ron Jackson

The .coms swept the last seven chart entries including another one from Flippa in #17 Matinee.com at $7,750. That is the second time that domain has sold this month. It had been picked on NameJet for $6,500 a couple of weeks ago before being flipped for a quick profit this past week. 

Here is how all of the sales leaders stack up for the week ending Sunday, Feb. 22:

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.

Sedo had 21 more four-figure .com sales ranging from $1,000 to $1,550  that are listed in the table below: 

Additional Sedo ccTLD Sales Between $1,000 - $1,550
campinggarda.nl $1,550   brautkleid-hamburg.de $1,140

Non .com gTLDs (.net, .org, .biz, .info & others, including new gTLDs)

The non .com gTLDs matched the ccTLDs with two five-figure sales led by one that ranks among the year's five biggest sales in this category - Checks.net at $24,500 via Sedo. Flippa also scored nicely with XV.net at $10,000. Things tailed off quickly after that  though with the next highest sale on our latest Non .com gTLD Top Sales Chart, #3 BusinessWorld.net, coming in at $2,500 at Sedo.

Rounding out the first five were #4 Monotech.net ($2,166 at Sedo) and #5 Workout.info ($1,851) at Flippa. All told only 13 sales were reported in this group that has been lagging the .coms and ccTLDs for a long time now, quite likely because the pie for this group has been cut hundreds of ways with the arrival of so many new gTLDs.

The .nets easily won the extension race with seven chart entries. Here's how all of the Non .Com gTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Feb. 22:
