What domain names BMW and 19 others bought

BMW was among the end user buyers at Sedo recently.

Some times when you schedule a post on WordPress it somehow doesn’t publish, giving an error “misses schedule”. That happened to one of my end user sales posts scheduled for September 20. I just realized it. So here’s a belated look at some of Sedo’s end user sales from September.

Nutritional supplements company nu3 GmbH, which already owns nu3.com and nu3.de, bought nu3.co.uk for 1,400 GBP.

Swiss architecture firm JFB Architekten bought JFB.ch for 1,250 EUR, which is much shorter than its existing jfb-architekten.ch domain name.

It appears BMW bought Miniblog.ch for 950 EUR. It took me a few minutes to realize this is because it produces a car call the Mini.

Smart Fleet Solutions in the UK bought SmartFleet.co.uk for 10,800 GBP.

FxPro Financial Services Ltd, which uses FXPro.com as its website, bought the Japan country code domain FXPro.jp for $4,500.

Lucky Seven Ltd. in Indonesia paid $1,395 for BettingMax.com.

Take Two Productions in Kansas City, a video production firm, bought MUV.it for 800 EUR.

A CSC client bought ShopThis.com for $5,000. Another CSC client bought Lungs.biz for 750 EUR.

Cloud services provider Trinity Network Solutions in Seattle bought CloudComputingProviders.com for $1,399.

Illumagear, seller of The Halo Light (a light you put on your head that looks like an angel’s halo), bought HaloLight.com for $8000. This is actually a pretty neat device for a niche market.

Irish company Numum, which I believe sells baby products like bottle sterilizers, bought Numum.com for $1,900. It has been using NumumBaby.com.

Medical Marketing MD Inc. in Montreal, which already owns LasikMD.com, bought VisionMD.com for $2,999.

The law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman Law LLP bought TexasOilandGasLaw.com for $4,888.

Primera Interiors, a flooring and cabinetry business in Arizona, bought Primera.net for $2,700. The .com is owned by another company.

Broadstone, a real estate company in Rochester, New York paid $22,000 for Broadstone.com.

Just the Beginning Foundation, a Chicago group that promotes diversity in the legal profession and judiciary, paid $950 to drop one letter from its domain name JTBF.org. It bought JTB.org.

ValueMyStuff, a company that values antiques, bought PinMyStuff.com for 700 GBP.

Healthcare products company Welch Allyn bought the Indian ccTLD WelchAllyn.in for $5,000. The New York company uses the .com version of the name.

Hmmm… StoryHeights Church in West Roxbury, Massachusetts bought ChurchSucks.com for $801. Maybe God will file a UDRP.

    Thanks for sharing. This helps to understand what these companies are buying. However, it’s surprising to see JFB Architekten who currently operates under JFB-Architekten.ch bought JFB.ch but both JFB-Architekten.com and JFBArchitekten.com are available.

    There are many companies who doesn’t own the .com version although it’s available at reg fee. Many of them don’t want to have it! No doubt there are many crazy people out there…
