DealDash buys defunct rival’s domain name.
Remember Swoopo.com, the auction site where you had to pay for each bid? It shut down amidst controversy, and now a competitor has purchased its domain name via Sedo. UK based DealDash Ltd paid 10,000 euros for Swoopo.com and now forwards it to DealDash.com.
This was just one of many “end user” domain purchases over the past week. Here’s a look at 22 others. All took place at Afternic unless otherwise noted.
College Travel Experts bought FallBreak.com for $1,500. That’s a very smart purchase at a great price.
Property management company The Landlord’s Agents, Inc. paid $1,688 for RentalSuccess.com.
Publicly traded Pethealth Inc. bought PetsLocal.com for $2,000.
St. Louis based Automation Service bought AutomationServices.com for $3,788. Its main web site is AutomationService.com.

College social networking site CampuSquare.com made a very necessary purchase, picking up CampusSquare.com for $1,500.
UMB Financial Corporation bought UMBBank.com for $2,000 at Sedo. This is interesting given that the company recently used UDRP for a domain name — and lost. (It was a different domain.)

Someone bought Egg.org for 3,500 GBP. Was it Citibank, which owns Egg.com?
Freight company MegaPack bought SingleDelivery.com for $1,195. That’s a clever domain for a freight company.
TFH Gazebos, a UK company that sells pop-up Gazebos, bought PopupGazebos.com for $1,500. A perfect domain purchase.
Proactive Publications Ltd, which owns InsideIndustry.net for its magazine Inside Industry, bought InsideIndustry.COM for $1,650. Smart move and a cheap price.
