eBay and GoFundMe contribute to big sales week at Sedo.
Two big names are on this week’s Domain Name Wire end user sales report. eBay picked up WhatsYourThing.com, and GoFundMe bought a country code domain matching its web address.
Jobs.bg made several more large domain purchases and REIMO returned to the aftermarket, too.
Overall, it was a great week for Sedo with nearly $3 million in sales. This means that the company had at least one big sale that wasn’t publicly disclosed.
Here are some end user domain name purchases from the past week:

MikiHouse.com $224,224 – children’s clothing company Miki Shoko forked out big bucks for the .com to match its ccTLDs.
ITjobs.eu €55,000 and ITjobs.it €13,350 – who else other than Jobs.bg? In addition to other expensive domains, it recently paid €58,000 for ITjobs.de.
Cars.ch €10,000 – Jobs.bg also bought this domain.
WhiteHorse.com $16,000 – lending company WhiteHorse Capital, which owns WhiteHorseCapital.com.
StrategicMarketer.com $12,000 – online marketing Real Strategic, Inc.
WCOF.com $4,500 – WCMMA, LLC, which stands for World Cup of MMA. So this domain stands for “World Cup Of”.
WhatsYourThing.com $4,500 – eBay. My guess is it’s for a new marketing campaign.
Career.kz $4,000 – the owner of HR.com.ge, a jobs board.

Blood-Cancer.com $2,000 – Health Union, LLC operates health sites such as Migraine.com, ChrohnsDisease.com and MultipleSclerosis.net.
WhiteHorse.com was severely undersold!
Mr. Ed would agree.

If someone had sent me a list of these domains and asked me to guess – without looking beyond the names themselves – which domain sold for $224.2k, I never would have guessed MikiHouse.com.
Just goes to show how much depends on circumstances beyond a domain name’s intrinsic merit.
I just wonder why they had to pay for it.
Thank you for sharing.
patience seems to play vital role in getting good prices for even average names.
Domain Notebook says
Value is based on supply and demand. This proves if you have a silly domain name that isn’t worth anything to anyone with the exception of one person or company and they are willing to pay big money for it then in reality any domain name has the potential to be worth a lot of money.
