A furniture company, entrepreneur group, and a large electronics cases company buy domain names.
Before jumping into this week’s Afternic/GoDaddy end user sales report, I’d like to call attention to two very timely domain name sales: DebtCeiling.com for $2,249 and DebtCeiling.net for $1,500. I don’t know who bought them (they have privacy on), but this may have been a smart buy. Even once this round of debt ceiling talks concludes, it won’t be long before the next one starts.
Here are some of the end user sales at Afternic and GoDaddy last week. The format is domain – price – buyer:
