GE, MLB, and La Quinta make domain name purchases.
I’m still playing catch up with end user domain sales reports. I combined the last two weeks of Sedo sale into one report. Big name buyers include GE and Major League Baseball.
The Almond Board of California picked up Almonds.co.uk for $15,000.
GE paid $1,177 for OxygenNow.com.
It’s possible GE is also behind Sedo’s top purchase from a couple weeks ago, $30,000 for WaterTreatment.com. The domain was registered by Walid Khoury in Dubai. There’s someone by this name in the UAE on LinkedIn who works for GE’s Water & Process Technologies. That said, it could be a personal purchase.
JP Landscape Services, Inc. in Washington State bought JPLandscape.com for $1,000.
Heritage Auctions, which is getting into the domain name business, bought GameUsed.com for $4,500.
The La Quinta hotel chain bought LaQuinta.asia for $2,500.
Education.com paid $1,650 for Brainzy.com.
Sustainability management consultants Junxion Strategy Inc. bought Junxion.com for $1,999, a much shorter version of its existing JunxionStrategy.com domain name.
The owner of selfology.ca bought Selfology.com for $1,500.
First Rate Exchange Services Ltd bought MoneyCard.co.uk for 12,031 EUR.
Benchmark Studios Limited in London bought Benchmark.co.uk for 5,500 GBP.
Pacific Life Insurance invested $1,900 in PrimeTerm.com. It calls one of its term life insurance products “PRIME”.
Major League Baseball picked up MLBShop.cn for $2,500.
MedGap Direct, a health insurance site, paid $1,349 for MediGapDirect.com. It uses MedGapDirect.com as its URL.
Taxsurance, LLC paid $3,000 for TaxInsurance.com.
A Mark Monitor client paid $1,999 for FXX.ca. I bet its Twentieth Century Fox.
Dental implant dentist Clark Brown bought DoctorImplant.com for $2,200. He already owns DrImplant.com.
UK clothing company Next, which has bought a number of ccTLDs bought Next.co.kr for 8,000 EUR.
PR/marketing giants Publicis and Omnicom announced a merger. The group bought a couple domains that were registered well before the announcement, including Publi-com.com for $800 and OmniPub.com for $3,750.
Moving company Heavy Help dropped “my” from the front of its domain name buy purchasing HeavyHelp.com for $2,500.
Touch Screens Inc. bought WindTouch.com for $802.
Analyzing this enduser sales series, something that pops to the eye is that almost all sales are in the $1,000-$3,000 range.
Andrew Allemann says
@ Joe – Yes, that’s the sweet spot for end user domain sales.
I wondered if GE was behind the gego.com Sedo purchase ($6+k) but it appears to not be the case.
