I would urge everyone in the domain industry or looking to get in to attend. I will be at the conference as well.
As for the auction, Remote bidding will be available on Namejet.com.
Unlike in years past you will be able to bid right from your NameJet account rather than going through a separate third party account.
Although I’m no longer involved with RightoftheDot or the auction I thought I would point out some of the more interesting domain names in the auction.
While there are over 400 domain names in the auction, not all of them will make the live auction, the rest will go into an online NameJet auction, so I thought I would concentrate on the domains with the highest bids as they are the most likely to make the live auction, but its obviously its not my call.
Also for the record I have no domain names in the auction, but may bid on some domains.
Certain the stars of the auction are the two, 2 letter .Com domains.
OL.com currently has a high bid of $800,000; reserve has not been hit but appears to be getting close as the stated reserve is between $750K-$1M
SW.com currently has a high bid of $506,000 and the stated reserve is between $750K-$1M.
The three letter .com; YEA.com was added just to the auction last week has a high bid of $35,888; it has not been hit but appears to be getting close and has a stated reserve of $25,000-$50,000.
Other three letter .Com’s are Doe.com; Let.com, DPT.com and CYI.com
We already wrote about the package of domain names that includes Bar.com, Cafes.com, Grill.com, Place.com, Pub.com and Shelter.com which has a $1M+ bid.
There are a bunch of one word .com’s including:
Some “professional” domains:
There are quite a few two/three letter word .Com’s many of which I would consider to be brandable domains:
A bunch of 4 letter .Com’s including:
There are also a few “first names” including:
There are a several 2 character .TV domain names and all have already hit reserve:
Here are some of the better new gTLD’s in my opinion:
A bunch of interesting .Net’s are also in the auction:
Finally just a few Geo’s:
I wish all the sellers and bidders the best of luck.
We will do an update as the auction gets closer.
