On September 13, I wrote an article regarding the domain name Sitcom.tv. At the time of the article, it had just come back on the market, as the previous owner did not renew it. Sitcom.tv was priced at $19,687.50 on Name.com for $16,540.00 at Enom. The big question was, would someone pay that much in the primary market?
Well we now have the answer and it is a resounding YES! In addition, it didn’t take long for Sitcom.tv to find a new home. It was purchased less than two weeks after my last article was published! The domain was registered at DomainContext not one of the usual .tv players. The registrar has an address in Wilmington, Delaware and has an affiliate registrar in Russia. The domain is under privacy.
This is a very meaningful event. It further supports the growth and acceptance of the .TV extension. It arguably might be the highest price paid for a hand registered domain name, period!
I congratulate the buyer of Sitcom.tv and look forward to seeing what they intend to do with the domain name.
