Here are some of the companies that bought domains at Uniregistry this week.
Would a gaming shop in Bentonville, Arkansas pay $10,000 for a domain name so that it could move is online presence from just a Facebook page to an actual website? It appears so.
It’s just one of the end users that bought domain names at Uniregistry this past week.
Here’s what I could find about the top 20 domains that sold at the marketplace:
1. extasy.com $18,000 – The domain has Whois privacy. This is another spelling of the drug ecstasy.
2. mytips.com $17,000 – Another domain with Whois privacy that doesn’t resolve yet.
3. ohne.com $15,000 – OHNE, which uses Ohne.co, bought the domain and forwards it to the .co domain. The company sells products for womens’ periods.
4. plantastic.com $12,000 – I believe the buyer is Premier Foods, which recently launched a product line called Plantastic.
5. earlyedition.com $10,500 – Whois privacy and no indications about the buyer.
6. wig.ca $10,000 – The domain may be for Canada, but it was bought by someone in Texas. Other than that, we don’t know much about the buyer.
7. geargaming.com $10,000 – It appears that a gaming store in Arkansas is upgrading from Facebook to a website.
8. stockauto.com $9,000 – The buyer also runs a site at OldsParts.com with Oldsmobile car parts.
9. houst.com $8,200 – This appears to be a play on the word “host”, as in Airbnb hosts. It forwards to Airsorted, a business that helps short-term rental hosts manage their homes.
10. LL9.com $8,000 – The domain is at GoDaddy using Whois privacy.
11. gotosea.com $8,000 – Whois shows the buyer is in Washington DC.
12. eaglex.com – $7,600 – This is likely related to a cryptocurrency project called Eagle Project.
13. noveltysocks.com $5,200 – What will you find on this website? Yep, socks.
14. screensource.com $5,000 – Whois reveals that the buyer is a German company, but that’s all we have to work on for now.
15. pantechnicon.com $5,000 – It seems that a new London restaurant called Pantechicon bought the domain. It uses the domain ThePantechnicon.com.
16. aceauto.co.uk $3,900 – I can’t figure out anything about the buyer.
17. freebooksummaries.com $3,500 – Whois shows a buyer in Oslo but nothing else.
18. hairycellleukemia.com $3,500 – Hairy Cell Leukemia is a rare type of cancer. I don’t know who bought the domain.
