A Celtic bookseller, Spanish blog network and Shopify bought domain names this past week.
Sedo’s top sale this past week was Sexe(.)com at EUR 210,000, but it’s not clear if it’s an end user purchase or not. Sexe means sex in French.
The top end user purchase is a financial company that is launching a brand under the name Hey Money. It smartly purchased both HeyMoney.com and Hey.money.
