(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – In a private deal, Famous Four Media has sold a package of 15 domain names to a single buyer. The deal, worth $175,000, was for adult oriented terms in the .WEBCAM registry.
“We are delighted to conclude this deal so rapidly,” said Andy Churley, Chief Marketing Officer at Famous Four Media. “Agreeing a six figure cash deal so early in a registry’s life is a testament to the strength of the .WEBCAM suffix, the capability of the staff at Famous Four Media and the willingness of its broker network to collaborate.”
“The .WEBCAM registry has a lot of appeal for premium name brokers like HuntingMoon.” Said Evan Horowitz, CEO and Founder of HuntingMoon “It has been HuntingMoon’s privilege to coordinate this historic, biggest ever reported new TLD sale. The fact that we collaborated with several brokers, such as Media Options S.A and Domain Broker UK, to achieve this landmark sale, in a newly launched new gTLD registry, is a great indicator for the success of .WEBCAM.”
The premium name sale comprised fifteen domain names brokered by Hunting Moon and fulfilled by SEDO.
“We have always been confident that the .WEBCAM registry would have great appeal in a number of vertical and geographic markets” continued Churley “We have seen growing interest in our premium names as our first 3 registries .WEBCAM, .TRADE and .BID approach launch. Ola Alli, Famous Four Media’s premium name manager did an excellent job in securing this historic deal. This means so much to the registry and is excellent news for the new gTLD program as a whole.”
