This week’s end user domain name sales report includes some big names. Auction house Christie’s bought an Andy Warhol domain name, University of Oklahoma bought a four letter acronym, and a Kickstart success story bought its company domain name.
Auction house Christie’s bought WarholArt.com for $6,457. It is selling some of Warhol’s works.
MasterGuides.com was purchased by someone for $2,000. The buyer is launching a site with video instruction.

Dermalogica sells an acne product called “Clean Start”, but I suspect a lot of people think of “Clear Start”. So the company paid $5,000 for ClearStart.com.
