    Fixed app fixes its domain name problem.

    FixedI’m behind on last week’s end user domain name sales list since I was at the ICANN conference last week. This list is for sales taking place the week before last.

    The top reported sale was GoldPay.com at $50,000. It’s still in escrow, but I suspect the buyer is the person who registered the trademark “GoldPay” for “Providing monetary exchange services, namely, exchanging gold and precious metals of others for cash; Financial services, namely, gold and precious metal trading” earlier this year.

    The next highest sale was interesting because an app maker bought it to upgrade from a pretty bad .me domain name. Fixed, an app that helps you fight parking tickets, was using the domain name GetFixed.me. Before I visited the site, I thought it was either for spaying/neuter dogs or vasectomies.

    Athlon.com leads Sedo’s end user domain name sales.

    SedoSedo sold about $1.2 million worth of domain names last week, highlighted by the six figure sale of Athlon.com.

    Athlon.com is still in escrow, but I have a pretty good idea who the buyer is.

    One other sale was notable not because of the dollar value, but because the sale was a trademark-matching domain for a $14.6 billion publicly traded company.

    A list of 20 end user domain name sales on Sedo last week.

    SedoSedo sold about $1 million worth of domain names last week and many of them were to end users.

    Some new TLDs changed hands, including .parts and .audio domains. The company that bought a .audio uses a .digital domain for its main web presence.

    Other buyers include LG (but not its electronics division), a model and a school photography company you might remember from your childhood.

  • $25,000 new TLD sale among this week’s end user domain name sales

    Travel company is among at least four end users who bought new TLDs at Sedo this past week.

    There is an aftermarket for new top level domain names. It’s not huge, and few people are getting rich from it. But there is a market.

    Take this week’s $25,000 sale of Baltic.cruises by Viking River Cruises. I’ve seen magazine ads for Viking, which promotes small ship cruises in European rivers for those that don’t want to venture far from shore.

    This domain was among at least four new TLDs sold to end users this past week at Sedo. The other sales were for under $1,000, but that’s not bad for domains registered less than a year ago.
