A Black Friday site, a gaming company and an apartment community bought domain names last week.
Sedo had a variety of end user domain name sales this past week, including a rare appearance by .travel. As usual, it was an international list of buyers.
Here are the end user sales I found. You can view previous lists like this here.
Vivlio.com $25,000 – A French company called Tea, which bills itself as The eBook Alternative, bought the domain. A rebrand in the works?
Mandom.com €20,000 – Japanese company Mandom Corporation.
BF.de €15,000 – Forwards to black-friday.de, a site in German about Black Friday deals and a countdown to retail’s biggest day of the year. This is a nice, shorter version of the domain.
Artificer.com $12,000 – This site is still in development with a message that says, “CRAFTING GOOD GAMES: We are Artificer, a new veteran studio…” Looks like it will be a game developer.
Ostsee.travel €9,500 – Kuehlungsborn Travel KG bought this domain. Ostsee seems to be German for Baltic Sea.
PostCodeSoftware.com $8,495 – MRI Software in Ohio specializes in real estate software.
Endumax.com $8,400 – TriMM, an internet agency in The Netherlands, bought this domain name. It’s likely for a client.
ExportPartner.com €4,300 – Export Partner BV, a Netherlands company that specializes in international exporting of products and consumer goods. The website is still in development.
SaludDigital.com €3,800 – Fundacion Carlos Slim (the foundation for the 5th richest man in the world) bought this for its healthcare service.
WestridgeApartments.com $3,181 – Glenco Apartments Incorporated bought this domain for its luxury apartment community in Burlington, Wisconsin.
Aero.pk $3,000 – Forwards to Aero.de, a news site in German covering aviation topics. .PK is the country code for Pakistan.
Magniva.com $2,895 – Lallemand is a global leader in the development, production and marketing of yeast, bacteria and specialty ingredients. Magniva sure sounds like a bacteria product.
SightseeingToursAustralia.com $2,714 – True to its name, this is a travel site for Australian tour providers and other travel services down under.
TwistedAlchemy.com $2,500 – A new company producing high-end mixers for cocktails from freshly squeezed juices.
CoolQuotesCollection.com $2,500 – This might have been a website purchase as it had an existing site featuring quotes. The site hasn’t been updated since 2012.
Pulte.net $2,500 – A guy whose last name is Pulte.

That’s an interesting list! How do you compile it? I mean how do you know who the end users are and what is their business?
For example, look at this post from NP:
When I see posts like these from James Iles as well, I wonder, how do you compile such a list! Must be taking extensive research at your end!?
I was planning to start my own blog too! Was wondering how to gather such info!
