A UK training provider, a travel site for Equatorial Guinea and a cryptocurrency bought domain names last week.
GDPR has made it more difficult to uncover end user domain name sales. But searching for sold domains that already resolve, as well as using what’s left of Whois, helps uncover some of them.
This week’s top sales at Sedo include some interesting end-user prospects. The top .com sale, Kiaro.com could be used for a an inkjet label printer. Also, take a look at Air.Space, which set a record for the highest publicly-reported .space sale to date according to Namebio…by a long shot. Sedo tells me the domain sold through the SedoMLS Channel.
Here are some of the end user sales at Sedo this past week, and you can view previous weeks’ lists here.
Air.Space $17,500 – This is in development with the title “Make friends around live 3D entertainment.” Will it be some sort of AR/VR social network?
Kiaro.com $15,000 – The top .com sale of the week has a private Whois record. When you Google this term the main thing that comes up is a label printer called Kiaro.
TapTax.com $5,000 – This domain is still in escrow. However, TAP stands for Taxpayer Access Point. It could also be for general tax filing software with “tap” referring to tapping a screen or app.
AAL.co.uk £4,250 – The new site for Apprentice Assessments Limited, a private training provider in the UK.
P-Care.com €3,900 – This Whois record changed to Schaefges Brothers, Inc. out of Wheeling, Illinois who handle Pool and Aquatic Complex construction projects. It’s now in the name of a web design company. P-Care would make sense for a pool company.
4k.de €3,100 – Forwards to 4kfilme.de or “4k movies”, 4k is an Ultra HD standard. This German site features news about 4k/UHD, movies, Hi-Fi and audio technologies and trends. A great purchase of a shorter 2-character domain name in this popular ccTLD.
GuineaEcuatorial.com €2,600 – Resolving to a site in Spanish for Equatorial Guinea, a Central African country.
An-Deiner-Seite.de €2,500 – Purchased by the Germany Marketing Communications firm ΛMΛRCOM. This could be for one of their clients for an upcoming campaign, An-Deiner-Seite translates to “by your side”.
BitcoinDiamond.org $2,500 – The domain forwards to btcd.io, a website for a cryptocurrency called Bitcoin Diamond.
Run365.com $2,500 – When you Google the name of the registrant, you see lots of photos of him running marathons. So like the name suggests, this will be a site about running.
TheZoo.org $2,000 – Forwards to WhosWhointheZoo.com, a novelty gift site based in Canada.
