A power company, a movie theater subscription service, and a cardboard marketplace bought domain names.
Sedo’s top two sales this week seem like bargains for the buyers. Unknown buyers picked up lithographs.com and qiq.com for $25,000 a piece. Yes, Q isn’t a great letter, but the repeating nature and pronounceability of that name make it a winner. In fact, the new owner has relisted the domain for $850,000. While that’s a stretch, this domain was a great wholesale deal, especially because it appears to have a fairly “clean title” going back two decades.
Here’s a list of end user domain name sales that just completed at Sedo. You can view previous lists like this here.
