AIG among domain name buyers last week.
It was a very international week for Sedo, which disclosed 47 country code domain sales over $2,000. That’s more than twice the number of .coms! It was helped a lot by the .AT auction, but that only explains some of it. In fact, the top sale was Lampara.es for €36,000. Lampara is Spanish for lamp. The domain name is still in escrow.
The biggest buyer this past week was the insurance company AIG, which bought a four-word domain name that matches one of its brands.
