According to a tweet from Sedo broker Frank Tillmanns, the Viajes.ES ccTLD domain name was sold via Sedo for €147,000. At today’s exchange rate, that is approximately $164,717 USD. As Frank mentioned in his tweet, viajes means “travel” in English.

Links.com Sold for €700,000 via Sedo

Yesterday afternoon, Sedo reported the €700,000 sale of Links.com. At today’s exchange rate, the sale is just shy of $800,000 USD (approximately $796,610), making it one of the largest public domain name sales of the year to date. It also appears to be the largest sale of the year for Sedo, not including any unreported private sales.

The tweet promoting the sale stated that this was the “most expensive fixed price domain sale yet!” I presume this means the buyer used the buy it now option from Sedo’s marketplace and it was the largest sale in this manner to have transacted via Sedo rather than a brokered domain name sale:

Results From Sedo’s 4 Letter .com Auction

13

Sedo hosted a 4 letter .com domain name auction that concluded yesterday. This themed auction is separate from the monthly Great Domains auction. Although the sale resulted in just over $24,000 worth of domain name sales, I think it is worth highlighting because it offers some insight into the current state of the 4L .com marketplace.

The top three LLLL.com sales in the auction were RVRR.com for $2,550, LOTB.com for $2,050, and PRCH.com for $1,605. I do not see any one word names that sold in this auction, so I suspect most would be used for their acronym value.

Univision Acquired TUDN.com Ahead of Rebrand

1

This morning, I read a Deadline.com article about Univision’s rebrand of its Univision Deportes network. The new brand name will be TUDN. Smartly, it looks like the company acquired the brand match TUDN.com domain name in advance of the acquisition. It does not look like the matching @tudn Twitter handle was acquired by the company though.
