The Heritage auction wrapped up today and the big sellers were Digital.com and Cute.com. Digital sold for $325,000 and with the buyers premium the total comes to $373,750. Cute.com sold for $200,000 and the buyers premium brought the total to $230,000. 16 lots sold.

There was one auction (CapCollection.com) that started at $2, I found that funny. It is clear the crowd was .com only as Baby.club was the only non .com to sell.

Godaddy Changing Domain Auction Rules On Time Extension Starting Monday

I just received an email from Godaddy.com that they are making a change to the closing rules on the Godaddy.com domain auction platform, which is to take place on Monday, 7/14/2014.

“As it stands now, any bid that is placed in the last 5 minutes of an auction auto-extends the auction by 5 minutes.”godaddylogo

“This will change to auto-extend to only 1 minute, and a maximum time of 5 minutes 59 seconds (5:59).”

“For example, if you place a bid on an auction that has 4:30 left, it will auto-extend this auction to 5:30.”

Personally I’m not sure why they are doing this, seems as it will only lead to more bid snipping and wind up with lower sales prices.

I am also not sure why they waited until after 5pm EST on a Friday to notify customers of the change that takes place on Monday.

I just got this additional information from Godaddy:

“Any bid that increases the current price will auto extend the auction as it always has. We are making it so that a bidder who increases their proxy wont trigger the autoextend because the current price wont update. Moving from a (5m + current time left) end time to just 5-6 minutes max should not increase sniping and still gives bidders time to get a new bid in.”

I guess we will just have to see what happens on Monday
