    Why do places like Afternic/Snapnames bother having auctions. The results are always embarrassing yet they still keep having them.

    No promotion and I’d guess the only people who ever view the auction are some domainers.

    So bad.

    Chris: Because they lead to a lot sales before during and after the auction. These are just some of the Published Sales on names that have sold before during or after a Moniker/Snapnames auction: MovingCompany.com, Jackpot.com, Data.com, Slots.com, Social.com.

    Someday, there will be domain auctions with plenty of Real End Users.

    When that time finally arrives, all this focus on the wholesale churning of domains from domainer to domainer at domainer prices can be religated to the Forums …where it belongs.

    I agree they are marketing to domainers, who have a huge portfolio already, and do not want the task of taking down those large reserve prices.
