    I Sold for $9,000

    A domain name investor has posted a report telling the community that they have just sold the domain for $9,000. Few details are known about this sales report at the moment, but we have been told that the sale is currently taking place through Afternic.

    According to NameBio, this ranks as the fifth highest sale of a .TV domain name in 2018. The new owner is unknown, but a quick search shows a New Zealand entertainment network called Giggle, who may be a good fit for the name.

    How Many Non-Domainers Know About New Extensions?

    New domain extensions have now been in existence for several years, but the "new" moniker is still attached to them. Even though some of these extensions have now been available for over four years, it seems that the majority of those outside the domain investment community may not be aware of them.

    Is lack of education from end users a factor in the adoption rate of new extensions, or does the public in general lack knowledge about domain names? Some very interesting opinions are being shared here.
