British broadcaster and creators of three comparison sites bought domain names.
The British broadcaster Sky is the highest-profile buyer on this week’s end user sales list of names sold at Sedo. Another thing you’ll notice is that buyers picked up three domain names to build comparison sites. The domains are hosted on different servers, so it appears the buyers are unrelated.
Here’s a look at some of the domains end users bought at Sedo this past week. You can review previous end user sales lists here.
RS.de €70,000 – The domain name was purchased by a MarkMonitor customer, so it’s definitely an end user. We just don’t know who it is yet.

BreitBand.de €20,000 – Breitband is German for ‘broadband’. The buyer is building a lead generation site for broadband services.
