A look at 16 domain names sold on Sedo last week that were purchased by end users.
Sedo handled about a million dollars worth of domain name transactions last week with 499 domains. Many of the biggest sales — such as Frank Schilling’s $66,000 sale of newy.com — are still in the transfer process. At that price, it’s surely an end user purchase.
Still, there are some notable sales to report. A three letter .org domain sold for $7,500 and a dermatology company bought a domain matching one of its brands for £9,500.
Here’s a look at 16 domain names purchased by end users over the past week:
SmartThings.co.uk $1,000 – Mark Monitor has been buying SmartThings domain names, most likely for Samsung, which recently acquired internet of things company SmartThings.
UTZ.org $7,500 – UTZ Certified, a sustainable farming group. It forwards the domain name to UTZCertified.org.
Partizan.co.uk £999 – Partizan Recruitment Outsourcing Limited, a UK company.
WeWork.org $900 – Law firm Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu, P.C. I imagine their client is co-working space company WeWork.
MobileBanking.com.br $5,000 – Bradesco Celular, which forwards the domain name to bradescocelular.com.br. I don’t know Portuguese, but it seems they are a mobile banking company as the new domain name suggests.
SuffolkPD.com $2,000 – City of Suffolk, Virginia.
fbet.net $1,499 – The domain name is registered to Leonum Limited. Its the same company that owns the longer fonbet.com.
Perfectha.com £9,500 Dermatology company Sinclair Pharma, which sells a product called Perfectha for “Facial Volume loss and Wrinkle Correction”
CasaCordoba.com €790 – The California Spanish restaurant called Casa Cordoba has been using the subdomain casacordoba.us.com. Big upgrade here.
RakeTech.com $995 – RakeTech Group LTD, an affiliate marketing company for gaming sites, has been using the matching .org domain name.
SalonWholesale.com $4,158 – The Modern Man, seller of male grooming products.
LongStayHotels.com $2,200 – Success Hotel Management GmbH in Germany
GFT.co €1,500 – GFT Technologies AG, a $650 million (market cap) tech company that owns the matching GFT.com domain name. You can deduce that someone at the company mistyped the domain name and pushed to buy the .co version.
PCProgram.com $1,000 – Sacremento software company Pt Technology Inc.
MaderaGroup.com $5,500 – Madera Hotel Management Limited in Hong Kong.
