.UK domain name is one of the biggest public sales of the year.
The domain name Furniture.co.uk has sold for $650,000.
Buyer Graham Haynes issued a release last week announcing his purchase of the domain name through Sedo domain name broker Dave Evanson.
Haynes’ release said the purchase was $700,000, but I verified the story and found that it was actually $650,000.
Either way, it’s a staggering amount of money for a .uk domain name.
Haynes said he previously purchased BedroomFurniture.co.uk for about $60,000 and it’s now a $7-million-a-year business.
His company also recently purchased Purple.co.uk for £108,000.
Haynes will also get rights to the second level domain name Furniture.uk.
