Big companies make domain name purchases.
This past week has been a great one for end user sales. I’ve identified 23 end user sales (there are of course more, but these are the ones that stuck out). There are big name brands in this report, so read on…

Raw TV Ltd, which owns RawTelevision.co.uk, bought Raw.co.uk for GBP 15,000
Enterprise Holdings, Inc., which owns the large car rental company Enterprise Rent-A-Car, bought ePops.com for $5,000. The company recently applied for a trademark for “epops” for “providing a web-based, on-line research community allowing users to share opinions in the fields of vehicle rental, vehicle leasing, vehicle sales, vehicle fleet management and business.”
Overstock.com bought Overstock.ae for $5,000
