A low carbon commodity firm, chat app, and accounting firm bought domain names at Sedo.
The process of discovering end user sales has changed in recent years as domain registrars began redacting Whois information in response to GDPR. GoDaddy recently joined the club, redacting information for customers worldwide. This creates some challenges for identifying buyers. But it’s not impossible.
This column of Sedo sales has managed to go on since GDPR. I have to rely more on domain buyers forwarding the domain to another site or developing their site quickly. Sometimes, as is the case with this week’s top sale, it’s clear that it’s an end user but unclear which company that is.
Here’s a list of some of the end user domain name sales from the past week. You can review previous end user sales lists here.
Me.nu $45,000 – I don’t know who bought it yet, but the buyer changed the nameservers to AWS and it’s clearly an end user.
ClimatePositive.com €25,000 – This was the top .com sale for the week and was purchased by SCB Brokers. SCB is a global low carbon commodity firm whose mission is to promote the adoption of a low carbon future.
SoulBuddy.com $8,662 – SoulBuddy is an app: “SoulBuddy app is a free competitive chat forum for people aged 16+, where users (we call them “Buddies”), previously unknown to each other, chat over a video call for 5 mins and afterwards score each other’s 1-on-1 performance based on criteria, such as kindness, authenticity and respect.”
Institut.com €4,888 – Forwards to DatenSchutzManagement.de, the website for the German data security firm, Sachverständigenbüro Mülot GmbH.
PartyTickets.com $4,000 – This site is still in development with a message posted that says, “Find and create your party”.
PoolContractor.com $3,500 – This is a website for searching for and listing pool services and pool contractors in various U.S. locations. A notice at the bottom says it’s powered by PoolMarketing.com, so that’s likely the buyer.
