BMW, a gaming company, and a deals site bought domain names over the past week.
It was a frustrating week to uncover end user domain name sales at Sedo because many of the buyers are using Whois privacy. Still, I was able to figure out the (likely) buyer of WomenInc.com at $25,000 after sleuthing around.
Also note the €11,000 sale of Iliad.it and BitCasinos.com, which will be used to direct people to casinos that accept bitcoin.
Here’s the list I uncovered:
(You can view previous lists like this here.)
WomenInc.com $25,000- The domain has Whois privacy but the buyer is likely this group. You’ll note that they also have a trademark filing for The Music Channel and are using that template for the new site.
Iliad.it €11,000 – Iliad Holding S.p.A. Looks like a relatively new company. The site on the domain as of 9/19 is from the previous owner.
ActionGame.com €6,500 – Online gaming network and publisher Zygomatic.
Scortex.com $5,000 – Scoretex is a “smart visual imaging” company. They were smart to upgrade from the matching .io domain.
BitCasinos.com $4,600 – The buyer is using Whois privacy but is creating a site about casinos that accept bitcoin.
Alpharent.com $3,500 – BMW. BMW owns a company called Alphabet as well as Alphabet.com, which is why Google couldn’t get that domain when they named their new parent company.
Waug.com $3,495 – Waug Travel in South Korea uses the domain name Waug.co.kr.
Pepper.es €3,300 – Pepper.com is an online deals site with over a half billion pageviews per month.
LiveLife.net $2,868 – CSC bought this domain for one of its clients.
PrivateDetective.net $2,299 – Private investigation company International Counterintelligence Services (ICS).
