Samsung bought a Galaxy domain name and other end user sales.
Did Samsung learn its lesson after being found guilty of reverse domain name hijacking? This time it bought Galaxy domain rather than trying to get it through a cybersquatting claim.
This week’s end user sales list starts with four country code domain names including an IDN.
Here’s the list of end user sales from the past week. You can view previous lists like this here.
Stühle.de €9,999 – Stühle translates to ‘chairs’ in German. Forwards to BusinessAngels.de, an investment company that supports online projects in various industries or founders of new companies. Did it buy this IDN to launch an ecommerce site selling chairs?
Partys.de €5,355- Forwards to Party.de, an online German party superstore with party supplies including balloons, party decor and a full array of costumes. This looks like a defensive registration.
Headphones.ca $5,300 – The buyer is setting up a Shopify store on the domain.
iFiber.com €5,000 – HomeNet Northwest, Inc. is an internet provider. It looks like it’s running under the brand iFiber to provide high speed internet.

Almaya.com $4,995 – Almaya International Ltd is a conglomerate based in Dubai.
Crystals.eu €4,800 – This is now an online shop for, you guessed it, Crystals! They feature jewelry and accessories made from minerals and crystals, including pocket stones, pendants and earrings.
QZInvest.com $3,750 – Qianze is a Chinese asset management companies.
ADA.shop $2,800 – I’m guessing this is the same health tech company that recently purchased ADA.ag. It owns ADA.com.
PlayGalaxy.com $2,599 – Samsung bought this domain name. Its popular phone is called Samsung Galaxy. You might recall that Samsung tried reverse domain name hijacking another Galaxy name. Perhaps it learned its lesson. PlayGalaxy.com was registered prior to Samsung adopting the brand name.
GymCrush.com $2,499 – The registrant is the founder of multiple gyms an exercise companies.
Falconeri.ch €2,499 – Forwards to Falconeri.com, an Italian brand of cashmere and wool knitwear for both men and women.

iFiber went way to cheap. I hope the seller didn’t think Fiber was only the edible kind.

Well that one might be cybersquatting…
