There have been some fairly huge sales of .TV domains recently, specially in 2012, which is a positive thing in my opinion. What’s been really surprising is that not all sales are for keywords that are a traditional match for TV or television.
Here is some of the sales info in case you missed it:
Think the renewed Verisign contract till 2021 might have something to do with the renewed confidence, and hence increased prices for .tv domains. But more importantly, there has been substantial movement in the space and a lot of domains being sold for what were previously unachievable prices.
I’m not a big .TV investor, though I have made some strategic buys and also some good sales and my personal investment in .tv has been a very good ROI provider. I do regret not having the funds to hold on to all the domains I got during the relaunch of .tv including top names like banks.tv, commerce.tv, lol.tv and more! But the registration charges conveyed after the fact were huge and not something I had planned for and hence couldn’t hold onto them.
And to come to the topic of conversation, given these sales, has .tv broken through the imaginary ‘glass ceiling’ in terms of domain prices, I really think so, given the offers we’ve turned down, as I’m sure others have as well and there doesn’t seem to be anything stopping the continued rise of .tv domains.
Do you think .tv has hit mainstream conciousness? Please share your views below!
