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.
The end user list, including new TLDs and existing ones, is below. …Click here to see the end user domain name sales
.Co owner pays dearly for .com, Shopzilla buys a .co.uk domain and CitizenHawk picks up a typo on behalf of Home Depot.
Sedo had 525 transactions last week for a solid $1.4 million worth of domain name sales.
A lot of the bigger sales are still in escrow. Still, we know about end user sales of $9,999 and $50,000 for domains that have already transferred.
Here are some of the end user domain names sales for the week:

A social media platform, lighting company and local marketing company buy domain names.
Sedo sold 556 domain names last week for a total of $1.2 million.
One of the more interesting buys was FLO.co, purchased by the company that uses FindYourFlo.com. Given their branding, I like the rhyme in Flo.co.
Below are 15 of the end user sales I identified from Sedo’s weekly list.
Ridescout pays big bucks for shorter domain name and other end user domain name purchases.
The .app domain name is coming. Until then, many app makers have plugged “app” onto the end of their domain names when they can’t get the .com domain that matches their app name.
Does the domain name still matter for app makers? Yes, judging by RideScout’s 60,000 euro purchase of RideScout.com last week. The Austin maker of the RideScout app for finding the best transportation options has been using the domain name RideScoutApp.com.
Here are other end user purchases at Sedo over the past week.
