The screenshots below are examples of buyers of domains from the last few months that have either developed their sites, or purchased an upgrade domain and have redirected their acquisition to an existing website.
QuickWins.com sold for $9,300 at Sedo, and the buyer appears to be affiliated with office supply chain Staples. The domain forwards to StaplesSmallBusinessApp.com, which is “an app designed to help you do more to grow your business through quick, easy actions, fast facts and community support”. Staples is running a “Quick Wins” sweepstakes that started last month.
DesignSkin.com sold for $8,800 at Sedo. At first glance, the domain has been developed into a cellphone skins site, but then the top of the page states, “This is a demo store. Any orders placed through this store will not be honored or fulfilled“, so I don’t know exactly what’s happening.
uSnap.com sold for $8,100 at Sedo, and the domain is developed as, “a viral engagement application that motivates consumers to promote their favorite brands via social media sharing of client-branded photos & video“.
DirectMatch.com sold for $8,000 at Sedo, and the domain is an upgrade from DirectMatchX.com. The site is envisioned to be an exchange for US Treasuries, and they raised $3 million in funding last month.
Cydas.com sold for $5,000 at Sedo, and the owner is Cydas Inc. The domain is an upgrade from Cydas.co.jp, and they provide a cloud-based human resources platform.
HealthySavings.com sold for $5,000 at Sedo, and the domain is an upgrade from the .net. The owner is Solutran, Inc. The site promotes a card that gives savings on healthy foods.
PlaceMate.com sold for $5,000 at Sedo, and the placeholder states, “A fast, beautiful and fun way to discover and share places. Searching simplified and streamlined. Launching in the app store soon.”
