21 end user domain name sales from the past week.
This week’s end user domain sales report includes a shop that’s probably at your local mall, a big online university, and cosmetics giant Loreal.
Thomson Reuters bought SJNK.com for $4,200. I’m not sure what it stands for.
Used Gym Equipment, LLC paid $1,988 for UsedGymEquipment.org to accompany its dot.com.
Harris Research, Inc., owner of the ChemDry franchise, bought ChemDry.net for $1,277.
Personal injury lawyer Bob Goldwater bought DrugLaw.org for $1,488.
Business communications company MessageMind bought InboxRadio.com for $1,277.
The Recycle Depot in California shortened its URL from TheRecycleDepot.net to RecycleDepot.net for $1,800. (The .com is owned by a well known domainer.)
MyCommunityLife, a social media service for groups, bought GroupPost.com for $1,850.
CRS Travel Solutions bought MeetingExperts.com for $1,088.
Yankee Candle, the store you can smell from all the way across the mall, bought ScentBeads.com for $3,396.
Niche Inc., maker of military cargo parachutes, bought NicheInc.com for $1,275. Its existing web site is NicheMFG.com.
First Dakota National Bank bought IronCountry.com for $1,595. It has an agriculture equipment financing program called IronCountry.
American Petroleum Institute picked up EnergyTogether.com for $2,195.
The group behind GeniusPlanet.com bought GeniusMobile.com for $1,400.
Schneider Publishing, which produces events and publications including some sports ones, bought SportsPromo.com for $1,941.
Cosmetics giant Loreal bought Eye-Art.com for $1,050. It does not own EyeArt.com.
Codecademy, which recently defended its domain name in a UDRP, bought CodeClass.com for $1,000. It’s a much better domain than codecademy.com.
Finally…not necessarily and end user sale but an interesting one. LifeofMuhammad.com, an alternate name for the Innocence of Muslims video that is making news, sold for $1,000. It was sold by Mike Mann’s DomainMarket. For some reason the whois record at GoDaddy is null.
Western Governors University, an online university founded by the governors of 19 U.S. states, bought WGU.it for $1,358. I assume it’s to promote information technology degrees, not Italy.
Online t-shirt design site CustomInk.com bought Inkathon.com for $1,450.
Denver County Court paid $1,150 for DenverCountyCourt.org.
WISE — World Institute of Scientology Enterprises — paid 800 EUR for Prosperity.info.
