George Kirikos Finds 7 Figure Sale of (Updated)

When it comes to researching “hidden” or hard to find domain name sales, nobody finds them as well as George Kirikos. According to his Twitter feed, George is getting ready to report another 7 figure domain name sale:

George is waiting until 15 retweets are achieved, and then he intends to publicly share the sale he found. Since it is a Sunday afternoon and getting to 15 RTs might prove to be a difficult task, I am sharing this information to help get to that goal. Once George shares information about the sale, I will post it here.

George shared a few hints about the domain name that was sold, although it is not quite enough to know what sold. Here’s what George has shared so far:

  • 4 letter .com domain name
  • All 4 letters are non “CHIPS” meaning the letters are either A, E, I, O, U, or V.
  • The domain name is a word
  • The seller is based in the US
  • The buyer is based in China

I searched a Scrabble dictionary with those parameters, and I only found 6 words (only one in the English dictionary and George said that wasn’t it). It doesn’t look like any of those 6 words in .com that I found has moved recently, so we shall see. On second thought, it didn’t count words that had a repeating letter.

Update: I think I found it… The domain name was owned by RealNetworks, Inc and is now owned by vivo Mobile Communication Co., Ltd in China. George has confirmed that this is the sale he was referencing.
