Time Inc. bought a sports domain name and Sears might start a site at Wash.in.
Sedo turned in $2 million worth of domain name sales during the last two weeks of the year, a fairly high number of the holiday period. I think it was helped by a couple big sales, because $2 million is high for a transaction volume of just 648 domains.
Some large companies bought domains, including Time and (I believe) Sears.
Here’s a look at these end user domain name sales from the past week:
Wash.in $15,000 – my guess is Sears is the buyer. It was registered by Sears’ Director of E-Commerce. It’s possible it’s for an outside project, though.
LottoResults.co.za $5,0000 – UK company Jackpot Gaming Ltd.
Hadwins.co.uk GBP 2,000 – Hadwins Capital Ltd, a financial markets trading software company that uses the domain name HadForex.co.uk.
CBRewards.com $3,295 – Bit9 + Carbon Black is a security firm. CB obviously stands for the second part of its name.
anıtur.com (IDN) $3,000 – The domain name was purchased by the owner of Aniture.com.tr and now forwards to that travel site.
Payworks.com $5,000 – Payworks GmbH, which provides a white lable card reader solution for point of sale companies, made a nice upgrade from its PayworksMobile.com domain name.
SportsCon.com $5,500 – Time Inc., publisher of Sports Illustrated.
PerfectPortal.com $6,000 and LawyersBank.com $5,000 – LEAP Legal Software. As its name implies, it creates software for law firms.

Bkam.com $3,900 – Bkam FZ-LLC offers a price comparison app for Egypt.
