NameDrive brokers sale of premium domain Televisions.com.
Domain name parking and sales company NameDrive has brokered the sale of Televisions.com for a substantial six figure price tag, Domain Name Wire has confirmed.
Jakob Knightly, VP Sales – North America for NameDrive, confirmed the sale in writing and indicates it is one of the largest scales brokered by NameDrive to date. The company has brokered over $10M in domains (including portfolios) in 2007.
Tom Carr of Las Vegas, Nevada sold the domain to Nathan Allen, also of Las Vegas.
Knightly says “NameDrive sees this as a great opportunity to locate and broker the sale of a generic domain for a buyer who intends to maximize its brand potential while providing a valuable service for online shoppers. With the changing scope of web traffic surrounding domain parking, developers and investors are seeing increasing value in generic domains — and prices for these names are indicative of that.”
Allen intends to develop the name, and Knightly will personally assist with the development. NameDrive offers a development service, but Knightly’s ongoing involvement with this domain will not be under the NameDrive umbrella.
“This will become a resource for shoppers to find televisions, cable, and related items,” explains Knightly. “We will be continuously developing and programming the site in the coming months, and it will start with normal affiliate links.”
Allen says, “After discussing some different prospects for developing the name with Jakob and gathering the requisite funding for development, I was excited to take on this project and look forward to growing a strong userbase from the strong existing traffic to this domain.”
