Live Current sells Call.com domain name for seven figures.
Live Current Media has sold the domain name Call.com for $1.1 million through domain brokerage Sedo.
The domain has a storied history. Live Current, when it was known as Communicate.com, sold the domain name as part of a package including Makeup.com, Automobile.com, and Exercise.com. Part of the sale included lifetime royalties on all earnings for these domains. Communicate.com reacquired Call.com in 2006 in exchange for eliminating the royalty provision. The company valued this future royalty stream at $250,000. In other words, it traded in $250,000 in future revenue in 2006 for a $1.1M sale in 2009.
Call.com was surely one of the two domains Live Current announced in a press release last week that it had sold for a total $1.6M. The other domain was likely Brazil.com for $500,000.
That press release also mentioned the company’s sale of Cricket.com for $1M cash plus $750,000 in other consideration.
Sedo brokered many other high profile domain name sales in the past week, including Editor.com for $225,000, Alternate.com for $90,000, and Games.eu for 67,500 EUR.
