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”.
