A payments company, a workplace app, and an online course creator bought domain names.
It’s interesting to see when a company swoops in and buys multiple related domains. With Sedo, this sometimes happens over weeks ormonths. But this week, one company bought four related domains on the marketplace.
Here’s a list of end user domain name sales that just completed at Sedo. You can view previous lists like this here.
Lendly.com $47,000 – This domain wasn’t in the weekly Sedo list, probably because it happened after the cutoff. Last month I wrote about lending company Lendly, LLC buying lend.ly for $4,500. The company was using getlendly.com. At this point, I can’t definitively say that the same company bought the domain, but I’d be surprised if it didn’t. Interestingly, both lendly.com and lend.ly were used by the same company many years ago.
Crydo.com $15,000 – This is an interesting one. It appears the buyer picked it up as a typo of crypto or plans to rebrand one of its businesses. Graham Ventures, Inc. forwards the domain to its Fund.io domain, which it uses for a payment processing business.
EBGSolutions.com $15,000 – Whois shows the buyer is EBG in Florida. A building company in Florida uses the initialism EBG, but the buyer could be someone else.
FitForService.com $12,500 – Fit For Service appears to be some sort of self-improvement system or course. Here’s how it describes it: “Fit For Service is a curated fellowship with some of the world’s top coaches and experts, specifically designed to help you become physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, romantically and spiritually fit to be in service of the good of all. ”
ITservice.ch €10,000 and Notebook.ch EUR 8,000 – Commerce Schweiz gmbh is an IT consulting shop.

Lendly*com sell price is solid.
I see companies like WeebLY, BitLY, GrammarLY, etc. quite often. The suffix (LY)+com is a slept-on go to for branding among tech startups.
With more companies avoiding NAME.ly (nation of Libya TLD), they have to upgrade to dot-COM or completely rebrand.
