A new NYC tourist attraction, a bank and a soccer score business bought domain names.
It was a big week for end user domain name sales, led by a bank name for $50,000. Also notable (because it’s cool, not the price) is that the developer of Hudson Yards in New York City bought EdgeNY.com for its viewing balcony. The balcony opens this month. Someone registered the domain back in 2005. NYEdge.com is registered by a music band.
Let’s get to this week’s long list of end user domain sales. You can view previous lists like this here.
