.Co.uk domain leads the way.
Sedo crushed all existing public records for two letter .co.uk domains this week with IT.co.uk. It was one of 16 domains that I could tie to end users.
Here’s a list of end user sales this past week. You can see previous lists like this here.
IT.co.uk £187,200 – The sale of IT.co.uk blows apart any previous records for two letter .co.uk domain sales. Whois changed last month to Intis Telecom, a messaging provider. The current USD equivalent is $242,000.
Melp.com $50,000 – Whelp, I don’t know who bought Melp. But it’s certainly an end user at this price.
KneeInjury.com $5,997 – Arthrex, Inc., a medical products and educational services provider for orthopedic surgeons, bought this domain. It offers training services in the areas of knee, shoulder and hip arthroscopies, foot, ankle, hand and wrist issues, as well as develops surgical solutions and engineered products.
RoofSurveys.com €5,500 – We had the roof replaced on the home we just bought, and the technology for estimating was cool. Instead of pulling out a tape measure to measure the roof, the estimator came with satellite photography of the roof that was used to calculate the total coverage. That’s not what RoofSurveys.com does, though. The buyer of this domain does on-site surveys, including the use of pole cameras and drones.
