P&G, TomTom among companies that sprung for big ticket domains last quarter.
Earlier today Marchex posted its top 20 domain sales for last quarter (sans price tags).
As with the company’s prior list of top 500 all time domain sales, the sales were to a mix of end users and domainers/lead gen types.
Here are some of the end user purchases last quarter:
Procter & Gamble bought Swash.com after being found guilty of trying reverse domain name hijacking to steal the domain.
Sunripe Enterprises bought Aprons.com. They appear to be affiliated (or a former name) of Chef Works, which sells chef uniforms. They’ve already put the domain to use as an e-commerce store.
IT and logistics company Simain Group bought ProLabs.com.
GPS company TomTom bought WebFleet.com. The company offers a program called WebFleet for fleet reporting.
Currency trader GID Associates, which seems to specialize in selling Iraqi Dinars, bought IraqiDinar.com.
Internet security company Awareness Technologies bought WebWatcher.com.
Hakka Cultural Industry Group bought Hakka.com. Learn more here.
