After turning down low six-figure bids, Mike Berkens’ Worldwide Media sells for $230,000

Worldwide Media Inc.

Popular domain investor and blogger Mike Berkens, launched his corproate web site Worldwide Media Inc. in December. 

Using the web address, the web site provides information on the company’s business, projects, consulting, and still one of the most interesting sections is the Domain Name Sales & Acquisitions section, which  describes a handful of the more than one hundred thousand domain transactions that Worldwide Media has been involved in since the nineties.

The last time I wrote about Worldwide Media, there were 13 offers listed in the Recently Rejected $10,000 and above section, including one offer for for $100,000. 

Since then, at least one more offer of $150,000 for was rejected, but now it appears the buyer and Worldwide Media have finally agreed on a number:  $230,000.

According to the most recent domain name sales section which are not subject to a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement), Worldwide Media has sold the domain name for nearly quarter of a million dollars.

Here’s a look at all the offers over $10,000 that were rejected by Mike Berkens’ WorldWide Media.  The ones in bold are new since my last story. $150,000  $125,000 $100,000  $100,000  $75,000 $75,000 $60,000 $50,000 $40,000 $30,000 $20,000 $15,000 $10,000 $10,000 $10,000 $10,000 $10,000 $10,000


Seller who hand-registered Single-Letter Domain Name D.TV in March 2010 Earns Nice Return: $18,000

stack of money

In case you missed it on Michael Berkens blog or NamePros, the seller of D.TV who hand registered the domain name in March 2010, earned a nice return.  The name sold on Sedo to Michael Berkens who wrote about the name being registered for less than $22 on March 18 after the .TV registery released single letter .TV domains.  Shortly after writing about the remarkable hand-registered domain, Michael became the buyer and purchased the name from the owner for $18,000 through Sedo.

The seller of D.TV also hand registered P.TV – probably some of the most remarkable hand-registered domain name finds of this decade.  Sure, this decade just started, but these hand-registrations might be hard to beat, at least for some time.

We’re relatively new to this whole domaining thing, but Michael Berkens has been one of our favorite bloggers, along with dozens of others who can be found at 

Michael regularly shares information on his website about his purchases, sales and more.  In the story, “D.TV & P.TV: How Did They Get Registered At Dynadot Last Night For Less Than $22”, Michael left a comment in which he published his .TV holdings (see below).  You can see more of Michael Berkens portfolio over at 


As Michael writes on his blog, the “Acquisition price for each ranged from a low of $69- to a high of $18K for D.TV”.
