End user sales including a couple new TLDs.
Sedo handled 569 domain name transactions last week for a total of $1.2 million, a pretty solid week for the domain name marketplace.
A number of German companies bought domain names, sometimes finding shorter alternatives to their hyphenated domains. A popular golf equipment company picked up a descriptive domain for used golf clubs, a bath products company bought a creative domain, and the company behind Twix candy bars bought a brand-related domain. A couple new top level domain names were picked up by end users as well.
