A lawn mower company paid $90,000 for Walker.com and other end user domain name sales.
Sedo’s sales list this week was highlighted by the $90,000 sale of Walker.com. Given all of the companies that have Walker in their name, this seems like a fair price. Walker Manufacturing Company, a manufacturer of riding lawn mowers, made a wise marketing investment in this domain name.
Other sales include a non-profit that bought its exact match .org (which is much better than what it was using!) and single letter .science sale for $3,500.
Here’s a list of some of the end user domain names that were sold through Sedo’s platform over the past week.
Walker.com $90,000 – Walker Manufacturing Company sells heavy duty riding lawnmowers. Its web address is walkermowers.com.
Craftplus.com $8,000 – Ivan Leathercraft Co, maker of leather crafting tools.
Brain-Group.com €6,890 – BrainagencyMedia GmbH is a marketing agency in Germany.
