20 end user domain sales including three for $100k+
Sedo had a very strong week for end user domain name sales. It’s not just the number of domains I uncovered (20) but also dollar amounts. Three end user sales went for six figures. Salesforce bought a .ai domain for $50,000. And a so-so .net domain sold for $48,216!
Here’s the list of end user domain name sales that just completed at Sedo. You can view previous lists like this here.
Links.com €700,000 – As I reported earlier this week, it appears that AllMyLinks acquired the domain.

21.de €79,730 – This top ccTLD sale forwards to Einundzwanzig.de, which is operated by the German company DSW21 (Dortmunder Stadtwerke AG). The site brands as 21, so this is a nice pickup.

Why would you call tomorrow.net a “so-so” domain? Tomorrow is an awesome word with positive, optimistic, futuristic vibes. Even though its a .net, 48 might be still very cheap for it.
Andrew Allemann says
Better phrasing might have been “A high price for a reasonably good .net domain”.
For dot net’s, tomorrow.net is a very good name. That said, dot net is a decaying extension. so it’s all relative.
Concerning .net being a decaying extension: it can be marketed just like any other extension and a brand can be had. Just make sure you also own the .com. Does not make sense to launch on .net without .com.
See slickdeals.net for an example. Honestly can’t think of any other .nets, which speaks volumes about it worth.
I have some solid .net names and occasionally get fair-to-middling offers, but majority come for .com, then .org, .ai, .me. Never sold an .app domain.
When SF wants a domain, it goes after it — nice .ai sale.
I bought some more premium .ai domains in the recent .ai auction. Most offers for these names come from startups; I’ve yet to get a publicly traded company, although one inquired about a super premium .ai a few times.
But I’m focused on the .com domains.
Yeah I’ve amp’d up my Cache of 85, mostly .com with some extra .Tech’s, .biz and .email to a whopping $16750 average!
I have all kinds of domains and websites .com, net, org info, biz, etc, but some of my favorite, which are usually quite undervalued are short cctld hacks.
I think .net is still good if you are using it for a network it’s meaning,I’ve seen sites now running on . network domains which makes little sense if you can acquire the name in .net fairly cheap. That said I only own one dot net and that’s for lightning payments which is a network so it made sense.
