Qualcomm and Express among end user domain name buyers last week.
The top sale on Sedo’s weekly transaction list for the past week was Same.com, which I wrote about here.
Although that sale dwarfed the other public sales, some big companies were buyers. Qualcomm, Express and Choice hotels all made purchases. Also take a look at the €7,949 price paid for a hyphenated new top level domain name!
