BASF among the big companies buying domain names last week.
This week’s end user sales report is shorter than usual. That doesn’t mean fewer domains were purchased by end users.
It’s likely a combination of two factors.
First, more domains are still in the escrow process this week than usual. If they’re in escrow I have no way of figuring out who owns the domains.
Second, there were companies with names in which I couldn’t easily figure out if they were end users.
