The SnapNames/Moniker International Premium & ccTLD Auction ends today at 3:15 EST over at SnapNames.com.
With four hours to go more than $160,000 in bids have been placed on 13 domain names yet only one, smokers.co.uk which was a no reserve name has hit reserve with a high bid of $400.
So over $160,000 in bids and only 1 $400 domain is over reserve.
Which of course begs the question of why does SnapNames allow bidding under the reserve range at all?
Take movieguide.com which has a stated reserve range of $100,000-$250,000 and is sitting with a high bid of $76,000.
What’s the point?
Shouldn’t the lowest bid the system would accept is the low range of the reserve or in this case $100K?
Out of the 13 domains with bids only 4, including the $400 domain with no reserve, have a bid inside the reserve range.
The other 9 domains are below the low reserve range.
In any event here are the domain with bids as of time of publication
