Religion drives Afternic’s big sales week
Religious domain names fill the collection plate.
Afternic had a big week-before-last, selling nearly $1.6 million worth of domains. It typically sells around $1.0 million, but was aided by several high dollar sales.
Two of the big sales were religious — Pastor.com for $45,000 and Pulpit.com for $25,000.
The owner of Sermons.com and Clergy.net bought Pulpit.com for $25,000. Although Pastor.com is still in escrow, I’d bet its the same buyer.
Another big sales was uLive.com for $75,000. A Mark Monitor client bought it. A possible client is CBS, which has a college sports network called ULive.
Medical technology company Associated Medical paid $1,292 for SurgeryPro.com.
Law Offices of Steve Whitworth bought CivilandCriminal.com for $2,188.
ComfortCare Hospice LLC in Alabama bought ComfortCareHospice.com for $1,300.

From the I-had-no-idea-this-market-existed department, a company that sells products to stop colic in horses bought ColicInHorses.com for $1,103.
