    I have been alluding that there would be some major news about .tv in my last posts. Cybertavern has informed me that they have sold Live.tv for $500,000. The new owner could have been leasing the domain name for a while. Premium renewal fee seems to be $25-50/yr.

    FCI Inc out of Seattle, Washington seems to be the new buyer. Doing some research on the current DNS servers of FlyingCroc.net, you will see the company , is ICF Technology, which their root domain is ICFTechnology.com. You can learn more about them by visiting their URL.

    Regarding the actual sale, Cybertavern has agreed to help provide documentation to Ron at DN Journal. Ron has been out of town, but we working to get this on the board.

    I appreciate all the effort and am grateful to Ted of Cybertavern for providing to show more transparency and disclose this massive sale.

    Kind Regards,
    A

    Great research - I recall a few years ago an interview on one of the .TV blogs perhaps with Page Howe (not sure) comparing .TV domains to radio frequency licenses. I kind of doubted we would ever see .TV domains reach that level of valuation. Well, perhaps there are a few buyers out there for short .TV domains.

    It's about Friggen time for some of these real dot tv sales to be documented and for everyone looking at the DNJournal scorecard to finally see the true values of this Bad A$$ extension.

    Excellent job once again Ammar.

    Ray, thanks for the write up on your blog. I can tell everyone else that this is going to be a very interesting year for .tv. Even personal inquiries and offers are increasing. Eventually the vanity extension is going to cause confusion, frustration and have buyers come back to what they know. Don't sleep on .tv!

    Fantastic sale!

    I have a few .tv, but no killers like this.

    Well done, seller and buyer.

    Amazing sale. Now that I think about it. "LIVE" is probably the best single word for a .tv domain. That is the best of the best. Soon I am hoping to invest in some good .tv domains when I am able.

    Premium renewal fee kills the value of the sale.

    Just kidding :)

    Really amazing sale! Never thought I would see the .tv name would be sold for a such ammount

    Fabulous sale.

    Really nice to hear about this alongside so many other high value sales of recent weeks.

    It wasn't that many years ago that talk of a four-digit sale was a crazy idea. Now five-digit sales are a regular mention.
    Hopefully this six-digit sale, following the announcement of other six-figure sale (fashion.tv $125,000) may be the start of a regular thing.

    One-off's (can you really get more than one 'one-offs'?) or start of a new norm - it's a highlight and special moment in the history of .tv






    For the first time in a long time I am now happy I once turned down a $70k offer on a name a few years back when the famous 'Swiss buyer' was doing a substantial portfolio purchase and acquiring dozens of high-end names
