A Goldman Sachs company was among those buying domain names at Sedo last week.
Sedo handled 675 domain name transactions last week for a total of $1.2 million. The top sale was TheRecRoom.com for $89,888. This was clearly an end user purchase, but the domain name’s whois record is protected by privacy.
As for the ones that appear with open whois records…Goldman Sachs bought one of the domain names for its AYCO company. Other buyers include a dog breeder, an RV seller, and a storage company.
Camper-van.co.uk €1,000 – Reimo Reisemobil-Center GmbH, seller of RVs and camper vehicles.
Drager.co.uk €900 – Draegerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, which makes breathing and protection equipment, gas detection and analysis systems and medical devices.

Chimp.co £2,000 – the domain is registered to charity services company Benefic Group Inc and seems to be for charitable giving platform Chimp.net.
Ayco360.com $799 – Goldman Sachs bought this domain name for its company Ayco, which uses Ayco.com.
Werkenbijbol.com €2,500 – eCommerce site BOL.com bought this. I believe “Werken Bij” is some sort of corporate term — any readers with insight?
