A car insurance company, a bookseller in South Africa, and an art studio bought domain names.
Sedo’s top public sale this week is PTSD.org. It’s still forwarding to the former owner’s website, so we’ll have to wait to find out who bought it.
Cryptocurrency-related companies continue to buy domain names at Sedo, including three of the end user sales uncovered.
Here’s a list of some of the end user domain name sales that were just completed at Sedo. You can view previous lists like this here.

Rool.com €14,700 – Groupe Indenticar, a French supplemental car insurance company. I can’t find any connection between this term and the company.

Reading.co.za $10,000 – MoveOnUp cc in South Africa bought this domain. It sells books focused on gardening, healthy eating, and other “green” topics.

LUV.us $5,885 – Blossom Technologies, Inc. is a Florida company that builds technology for credit unions.

SerrePoncon.com $5,219 – The Tourism Office of the Serre-Ponçon region in France bought this domain.
Duschkabine.de €4,000 – SK Montage is a German shower glass/back company. It forwards this domain, which translates as “shower cubicle”, to its website at skmontage.de.
HD-Group.de €3,500 – HD Group is a German manufacturer of custom doors, deck structures, and pools. It forwards the domain to HD-Group.net.
Dogeshop.com $2,500 – The buyer is building a place where you can buy and sell physical stuff using Dogecoin.
Hikvision.co €2,500 – Hikvision is a Chinese digital security video camera manufacturer. It uses Hikvision.com for its website.
Segenssprueche.de €2,200 – The domain forwards to a website for the Protestant Church in Hesse and Nassau (EKHN) in the western region of Germany. It translates as “blessings” in Luxembourgish. The .com version of this name isn’t registered.
Hikvision.co was a steal at 2500 euros. That’s a very well known company. I’m shocked. But good on them… I can’t see a legitimate interest in someone else having that name in the dot co version. Maybe the seller got lucky with that, and identified that it is cheaper for the company to buy it at that price than to go for a UDRP. Very daring!
Some nice sales especially the top 2 one’s in non .com
