The owner of online furniture retailer Bedroom Furniture Direct has recently acquired two domain names for a combined figure of around £639,000.
Domain marketplace host, Sedo, revealed that Graham Haynes purchased the name Furniture.co.uk for $700,000 (£531,000) at the end of July – one of the biggest public sales so far this year for a .uk domain.
The acquisition follows another domain purchase, Purple.co.uk, which was bought for £108,000 back in June this year.
Both domain names are currently forwarding to the company’s website, BedroomFurniture.co.uk, which was acquired back in 2012 for $60,000 (£45,000) when the business launched.
Bedroom Furniture Direct trades alongside its sister company Enhanced Homes, with both based in Ross on Wye, Herefordshire.
