We have more news on the RightoftheDot.com auction being held a week from today at Namescon at 2PM PST.
An owner of 8 domain names in the auction, all of which already have bids in pre-bidding at Namejet.com has removed the reserve price.
By removing the reserve prices, the domains are being offered at NO Reserve.
Since all of the domain name have bids and the reserves have removed, the high bids are now the winning bids.
Here are the domain names which are all open for pre-bidding on NameJet.com
Of these domain names as of publication, NannyCams.com has the highest bid of $2,600.
As you probably know its a popular product and a Google search for the term in quotes returns plenty of ads.
SouthAmerica.com has a current high bid of just $1,650 which is a great broad Geo Domain.
Metrocard.com which is a popular term for prepaid public transport has a high bid of $1,250
DoctorLove.com a name which many have called me, has a high bid of $1,200.
The other domain names all have bids in the hundreds of dollars but should not increase significantly that the reserves were lifted.
In other news another three letter .Com was added to the auction NED.com which is also a popular first name and stands for many things some of which are highlighted here

Michael Berkens says
Happy New Year Acro.
Friday the ban on selling stocks in the chinese market expires, and up to $100 billion could exit their markets, says one TV pundit.
So there will be a lot of capital seeking other asset classes next week, if they allow the selling halt to expire.

Are they going to fix the PUMPed Prices?
eg: Won . com Won Dot Com) shows at the Namescon Auction page (NJ) the ridiculous estibot valuation of 371,000 USD but if you valuate the same domain at the main source Estibot dot com… you get less than half: or 180,000 USD..what’s up with that?
and there is a ton of other domains which valuations suddenly have increased…and this is exactly what Joseph Peterson talks about at DNW..Pump Pump..
This is Luc from EstiBot.
I wanted to confirm that we’ve been performing incremental algorithm updates for the last 4 weeks. The updates were related to improving valuations on short and numeric domain names. We’ve developed a completely new model for short domain names and we’ve been rolling it out slowly to ensure that there are no glitches.
There will be variations between cached NameJet data and the new algorithm data because NameJet queries the data from us typically just once and it could have been weeks ago when the domain was queried by NameJet.
Typically, this is not a problem, and goes unnoticed, but in the case of trending domain names (ex: short domains like won.com) it can cause confusion.
In other words, I wanted to confirm that the data provided on NameJet was previously generated by EstiBot, and since the data was pulled from us via API there was an algorithm update, and the data has changed on our side.
I apologize for any confusion or problems this may have caused. The market is changing fast and we’re working hard to ensure that our pricing reflects the latest trends. If anyone has any other questions, please contact email@example.com.
