Several web design and development companies, a personal finance service provider, a British boutique law firm and a healthcare service comparison tool bought domain names last week.
It was a solid week for end user domain sales as Sedo. Sudden.com was the top end user sale this week (that I could identify) at nearly $25K, but it remains to be seen what the web service provider who purchased this will use it for. The overall top sale of the week actually went qnet.org at $27,250 but I wasn’t able to pinpoint the end user for this domain yet.
(You can view previous lists like this here.)
Sudden.com $24,950 – Bought by Electronic Creations Corporation which is a website creation and management service provider. This could be for a new project but for now this page has a “Coming Soon” message saying the website is currently undergoing a major re-design and expansion.
BestMind.com $15,000 – This domain is registered to Shanda Interactive Entertainment Limited, which is a Shanghai-based online publisher of books and games. In 2017 they were acquired by the Zhejiang Century Huatong Group.
Paybit.eu €10,450 – The domain isn’t resolving yet but there is a cryptocurrency payment processing service by the name of Pay Bit who uses PayBit.com. This might be part of an expansion or brand protection. Paybit.de previously sold on Sedo for $27,915.
PB.co.uk £8,400 – This two letter ccTLD already has a fully functioning site up and running for a boutique law firm based in Horsham specializing in intellectual property and business law.
Smile.direct €6,000 – Whois is redacted due to GDPR but I couldn’t help associating the name with the heavily advertised Smile Direct Club which currently uses SmileDirectClub.com. Maybe they will adopt this shorter domain name in the future. SmileDirect(.)com is also in use (NSFW).
Jass.com $5,199 – This site was bought by RAR Info Solutions LTD, an online SEO, PPC, Web Design and Development agency. There’s nothing on their site about Jass but maybe this could be a new product or service or for a client.
HappyScore.com $5,000 – This domain currently forwards to HappyMoney.com, the site of a financial company called Happy Money that used to be called Payoff. It doesn’t appear to be associated with the book of the same name. The company offers services under the name Happy Money Score.
VO1.com $5,000 – VO1, Ltd in the UK.
Trasna.com €4,500 – Purchased by the Oases Health Group, a European healthcare service provider and online comparison tool to arrange for health care services across different EU countries.
Print-Point.de €4,000- Purchased by the German print company Print.point, which currently used the address nichtrumdrucksen.de. That’s a play on the words Drucken=print, and drucksen means “hum and haw”. I’d say this new domain is an improvement, even with the hyphen (which is common in Germany). This domain currently has a “Coming Soon” sign up in German.
Taihing.com $3,500 – Whois is showing the registrant as Black Media Group, which is a web design firm out of Hong Kong. Tai Hing is also the oldest existing public housing estate in the Tuen Mun neighborhood, but it’s not clear if there’s a connection between the web design firm and this domain.
JoyMade.com $3,000 – Organic foods company Hain Celestial Group has a large assortment of natural food brands under its umbrella. Maybe Joy Made is the next brand launching?
Swipe.ch $2,888 – Has a coming soon sign up but this could be the Swiss landing page for Swipe, a service that allows presentations to be made mobile friendly in an easy streamlined process. They use the domain Swipe.to.
Apotheken-Inventur.de €2,500 – The Germany company Behning bought this domain and it appears they will use it to offer inventory assessments for pharmacies to save them time and HR resources.
PCBSoftware.com $2,000 – PCB Software s.r.o. PCB is the name for electronic design automation software.
