Sex sells – but Web sites cost a fortune
And the rest is anti-climax
The company trying to making .tv domains the latest fashion accessory has scored itself a PR scoop with the announcement that www.sex.tv has gone for a record price. Unsurprisingly, it has gone to an "adult entertainment" company.
Unfortunately that's where the information ends. How much was paid? Who bought it? What will it feature (well, we kinda know that one already)?
Unfortunately, the press release tends to concentrate on the content aspect. It also fails to put a phone number or contact email on the release. There is also no whois for .tv domains. And the .tv PR people are not answering their phones. And there's nothing on www.sex.tv yet. Hmmm.
Either the dot.tv people have cocked-up a huge opportunity to get their domains known or else this is a complete non-story (well, why are you writing it, you idiot -Ed).
(I'll tell you why - because sex sells Ed.)
(What you think people will read this story just because it has the word "sex" in? - Ed)
(Fair enough - Ed)
