Wyndham Hotels, Business Insider and 23 and Me buy domain names.
Sedo handled 602 domain name transactions last week for a total of $1.4 million in sales. Among the purchases were some typos and famous brands, but also companies buying up great generics for their industries.
Writer wanted: Joseph Peterson has been writing the end user sales lists for the past month, but the weekly expired domain reports alone are taking up enough of his time. I’m looking for a writer to handle this weekly post. The writer needs to be able to quickly scan data with an eye for end-user domain name sales, and must be able to create the post within 24-48 hours of receiving the data each week. WordPress experience is a plus but not required. Contact me at editor (at) domainnamewire dot com.
