The screenshots below are examples of buyers of domains from the past few months that have either developed their sites, or purchased an upgrade domain and have redirected their acquisition to an existing website.
Nobis.it sold for $11,712 at Sedo, and the domain is the home of an Italian insurance company. It appears the domain was needed as part of a recent merger of two companies.
Tufts.com sold for $4,988 at NameJet, and the domain redirects to Tufts.edu, the website for the university in Massachusetts. Per Whois, the .com is owned by an individual in New York, but hopefully they have an affiliation with the university and the domain will stay in good hands.
PoliceOfficer.com sold for $4,400 at NameJet, and the buyer has it redirected to their Investigations.la website. “Welcome, Investigations.LA, LLC.®, along with PoliceOfficer.com®, is operated by several honorably retired Deputy Sheriff’s or Police Officers from Southern California, working under a fully licensed Private Investigator Managers license. We work exclusively for defense and civil attorneys.” They’ve got a bit of a confusing domain strategy, as their logo promotes PrivateEyeLA.com, despite the Investigations.la and PoliceOfficer.com domains, and they also use a [email protected] email address.
Asuman.com sold for $4,000 at Sedo, and it was picked up by a chocolate company with the same name, which has bricks & mortar locations in Istanbul. The domain currently redirects to CikolataDukkani.com.tr, and the company uses a AsumanOnline.co email address, but I’m guessing both will be eventually merged into Asuman.com.
GvPro.com sold for $2,980 at Sedo, and the domain was an upgrade from GvProTables.com. Based in Wisconsin, “We manufacture and sell athletic scorers tables, chairs, and podiums that can help boost the image of your college or high school’s arena as well as generate more advertising dollars for your athletic department.”
GuardianAngelHomeCare.com sold for $2,888 at Mike Mann’s DomanMarket.com, and the home care company based in Massachusetts picked up the domain, and have it redirected to their GuardianAngelSeniorServices.com. “Guardian Angel Senior Services was founded in September of 2003 based on a dream that we could make a difference in the lives of seniors and go above and beyond the call of duty.”
