April was certainly a good month for the .tv extension. Earlier in the year Verisign extended its contract with the Island nation of Tuvalu, and that may or may not have given more comfort to those investing in the extension. Whether the contract extension helped or not, there were many five figures in the extension for the month of April.
April started out with Ammar from Allthings.tv selling Jeu.tv (Game in French) for $50,000. A little history behind Jeu.tv as its an exercise in investing for the long haul vs selling early.
The name was first secured in 2006 during the great 70 % off sale. Verisign held a promotion that not everyone knew about, that provided 70 % off upfront and 50 % off renewal.
The name was secured for $225 and the name got traffic, 10 to 15 uniques a day. At the end of January 2008 the domain sold for $4500. The person who bought the name let it drop in 2010. Ammar regged the domain, paying a one time premium fee with non premium renewal fee after that. He was able to tell that registration into $50,000.
Igal Lichtman/MrsJello, kept things moving after his $25,000 sale in March of Kids.tv to ES.tv. He sold a three domain package of Film.tv, Filme.TV and Filmy.tv for $65,000. All three names were registered in 2000.
Jim Holleran sold Medico.tv (Doctor in Spanish) for $10,000 and EyeCare.tv for $10,000.
Telepathy Inc. sold Doctor.tv for $25,000.
Donnied79 from Allthings.tv sold Salute.tv for $9500.
Jeff Overman who has become a star in the .tv market, sold ENG.tv and INT.tv for $3500 total.
Ronnie McKenna a long time Scottish .tv investor sold Drugs.tv for $5000.
Machinery.tv sold for $1250
Hail.tv for $2000
TwoJa.tv a polish name sold by Nick from TwoMoon.com sold for 850 Euros.
Euronews.tv sold for $1000
Cairns.tv an Austalian Geo sold for $1334 on NameJet.
Sing.tv sold at Allthings.tv for $1350.
Ken from DomainNameLife sold SquareMeal.tv for $1500.
There were no special auctions like the Verisign/Sedo auction of a couple years ago. So from a pure aftermarket sales standpoint,this makes April 2012 one of the best months ever.
Congrats to everyone.
