So What Will Sell For?

The .cm auctions are underway at, and bidding is already hot and heavy.

This auction is for the .cm domain that had more than one pre-order during the landrush.

Although the first .cm auction does close until Tuesday, several domains on my radar are already in the four figures.

As we know the highest price ever paid for a domain is ($12M-$14M depending on reports).

We also know the domain sold for $35K in the RickLatona .Cm auction over a month ago. sold for $454,000 a few TRAFFIC back in 2006.

So the natural question is what will sell for?

Bidding has already topped $12,000 with days to go.

There are 198 bidders in the auction.

My estimate is around $75K.

What is your guess?

    I just don’t get it. I understand that there could be some misdirected type in traffic for this name but don’t some of these buyers understand more and more tlds keep coming out? If the .xxx extension did come out I would see that as a valuable but .cm? Also I would think .co is even better because sex “company” or .tv because sex “tv” but .cm? Am I just not seeing it?

    Huw went unsold at the auction, with a reserve at $5K.

    That domain is owned, not by the registry.

    well, hate to say it but it seems didn’t get re-auctioned, but awarded to second highest bidder at $21,700 USD (minus all the bids that drove it up to $51k)- well damn, I guess I should I got in that auction and bid second place!! Good domain in my opinion.
