A “cold chain” company and beauty products seller bought domain names this past week.
Many of Sedo’s domain name sales from the past week are still in escrow or are using Whois privacy, so I have a limited list of end-user sales for this week. The usual trend applies: companies that own a domain in one extension picking up the same second level domain in another extension.
Here’s the list…
(You can view previous lists like this here.)
Podia.com $9,500 – serial entrepreneur Spencer Fry.
ChaaS.com €7,500 – Controlant is a cold chain company (it helps keep things refrigerated in the supply chain). CHaaS stands for “Cold-Chain as a Service”.
Ready.es €6,050 – Clarke, Modet and Co is an intellectual property firm. It likely bought this domain for a client.
Anthill.com £3,500 – Anthill Inc is a web development shop in Kentucky that uses the domain name Anthill.net. It got a great price on this domain.
Objectflor.com €3,500 – objectflor Art & Design Belags GmbH in Germany got the .com to go along with its .de domain name.
SolarCamera.com $3,200 – The buyer’s name matches the CEO of a company called King Solarman, which develops solar energy products.
Anvol.com $3,000 – CSC acquired this domain name for a client.
Thandi.com $2,900 – This is a personal name, acquired by a guy whose last name in Thandi.
Grandel.online $2,800 – Dr. Grandel GmbH, a beauty products company, bought the .online to go with its .de.
GoGoMovies.com $2,499 – GDC Technology Limited manufactures cinema servers.

Joshua Schoen says
Anthill.com is a great name. I agree, the buyer got a rather nice deal there as plenty of other companies share the same name.
It is good to see the info on the buyers of domains because this way you can learn why they bought it. With most of these I can tell the buyer needed the domain whether for an upgrade or because it match a business venture they had.
This is why I feel when it comes to deciding on whether to buy a domain or not you must ask yourself if this domain is something a business can use and what would be the use of it.
