    Better Bathrooms UK Limited paid $3,388 for BetterLights.com.

    Animal Finders, a new service designed to help connect lost animals with their owners, bought PetsReunited.com for $1,600. It operates in the UK at AnimalFinders.co.uk; I wonder if they tried to buy the .com of that name and found PetsReunited.com to be cheaper.

    Online marketing company Hubspot bought FaceSpot.com for $2,800. For Facebook marketing tools? If so, it should be wary of Facebook, which likes to claim trademark infringement on such domains.

  • ‘top apps’ is also a high search term for apps. ‘best apps’ gets even more searches. They probably bought TopApps.com because it partly matches their company name though.

  • Hey! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    With thanks!
