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.
PlayWell.com sold for $9,500 on Sedo. The domain now redirects to hape.com – a Canadian company that is the world’s largest producer of wooden toys. I don’t see a reference anywhere to a Hape marketing campaign or Hape toy line called Play Well, but you would think they have some plan in mind. Maybe it will be the future name of their environmentally responsible line of bamboo toys.
delta.io sold for $2,999 on Sedo. It is now the home for the open source storage layer called Delta Lake which was at least partly developed by Databricks to work in conjunction with another open source project called Apache Spark. IT terminology can be hilarious – farms, gardens, clouds, lakes, blah, blah, blah…
Calii.com sold for $6,500 on Sedo. This is an interesting concept if they can pull it off successfully. They are currently only live in Monterrey, Mexico. The goal is to cut out the middlemen in the food supply chain by matching buyers with producers (for some savings) and they facilitate group buying for much larger savings.
Sport-Wear.com sold for $2,000 on Sedo. The domain now redirects to texmarketsports.com which is the domain for a company that designs and produces custom sports apparel. It’s an interesting purchase where you wish you knew the motivation. It certainly ties to their business well, but the dash domain just to redirect to your main domain is an odd choice. I wouldn’t think it has much if any natural traffic. Archive.org isn’t working right now so I can’t tell what it was before.
Intys.com sold for $3,500 via Sedo. This is the new home of Intys Data – “a consulting company dedicated to guiding customers leverage [sic] their digital transformation“. I believe their old domain was intysdata.com which now redirects to intys-data.eu. I’m assuming the pronunciation here is entice.
