From bitcoin to car care to family entertainment, here are some of the end users that bought domain names last week.
Sedo handled 624 domain name transactions last week for a total of $1.7 million, a bit more than usual. While the list includes a number of four letter domains, it’s a lot fewer than two weeks ago.
Among the end users snapping up domain names: a city in Ontario buying the name of one of its landmarks, a Chinese astronomical group buying its acronym and an Australian bitcoin company buying a domain name for a service.
Here’s a look at end user domain name sales from the past week on Sedo:
