It was a fantastic week for brandable domain name sales with six sales in the five-figure range. We would have our first ever seven-figure brandable sale to report if Vivo wasn’t the Spanish word for Alive. The sale of Vivo.com was discovered and reported by George Kirikos on Twitter this weekend. As Elliot Silver reports the domain name was owned by RealNetworks, Inc and is now owned by Vivo Mobile Communication Co., Ltd in China which paid $2.1 million for the domain name.
Leading the chart this week is the sale of SweetLegs.com which was sold by Mike Mann his DomainMarket for a sweet $17,000. Another interesting sale was that of Maill.com for $8,756 at Sedo which shows the trend for double letters continues. Names I like on this list include Lobi.com, TheMenu.com, Kilia.com and Fabior.com
