    19 end user domain name sales.

    I’m back in Austin after attending HostingCon (more on that later), so here’s the belated end user domain sales report for this week.

    In case you missed it, I visited both Afternic’s and Sedo’s offices this week.

    Afternic

    Washington Jesuit Academy bought edSolutions.org for $1,000.

    Global Business Travel Association
    paid $2,250 for GlobalBusinessTravel.com.

    Here’s a timely purchase, although it’s not clear if its an end user: someone bought BankruptCity.com for $2,088. Cities in California are filing for bankruptcy left and right.

    TradeBusters in Australia, which owns tradebusters.com.au, went global with TradeBusters.com for $1,675.

    Wilcox Investment, Inc. bought WealthGuide.com for $3,000.

  • That’s a nice pick-up of the .net version for Mark Monitor’s client. The former owners of the dotcom version (today.com) briefly had it on Sedo for a while and were looking for a tidy sum for the domain, hopefully that came to fruition when the now-defunct NBC/Microsoft joint venture acquired it in 2010.

  • Felt better looking at the Sedo sales. :-)

    EDsoultions.org could be taken another way.
