A modular buildings company, a lumber business, and a social networking app bought domain names at Sedo.
There’s been a lot of chatter about Sedo’s sale of Lokal.com for €40,600. Some people think Lokalise, a localization and translation software company, bought the domain after raising $6 million in funding. Maybe so. But the turn means local in a handful of languages, so it could well be another company.
Here’s a list of some of the end user sales at Sedo this past week. You can see previous lists like this here.
