Special edition of the end user domain sales report.
Here’s a special Monday morning edition of the end user domain sales post. This will cover some recent Sedo sales as well as non-reported sales.
On the non-reported side, I have a big company to report: IBM has purchased SmarterCity.com and SmarterCities.com from Justin Godfrey of Domain Investment Services for $15,000.
Godfrey also sold MallPlaza.com sold to MallPlaza.cl for $10,000 through Afternic.
Here are some Sedo end user sales:
Internet dating site Match.com bought MatchRadio.com for $1,695.
Veterans United Home Loans bought VUBank.com for $2,000.
Houston, Texas car dealer Russell & Smith Ford bought RSFord.com for 1,799 EUR. It uses the web address RussellSmithFord.com right now.
Finally, I’m wondering who the mystery buyer of Cocomo.com is. Sedo sold the domain for $33,000 but the new owner has a fake whois record:
I’m surprised CSC let one of its clients use bogus information like this. The nameservers are used for Microsoft hosting services and don’t mean that Microsoft is the buyer.
