Three Domain Name Auctions Going On Right Now

April 1, 2010domain madness, Domain Sales, Domaining, Domainnamewire, sedo, SnapNamesComments Off on Three Domain Name Auctions Going On Right Now

Lots of domain name auction action going on.

There are three live domain name auctions going on right now:

First, the Domain Madness 2 extended auction ends this afternoon. Several domain names already have bids including Autorespond.com ($4,000), CustomChopper.com ($7,000), and Experimenting.com ($2,000).

Snapnames has a Spring Auction with no reserves running now through April 8. Bidding starts at $300 per domain. Among the interesting domains are AdvertisingDeals.com, LocalPromotion.com, and ClickConversion.com.

Sedo is running a .tv domain auction that also ends April 8. The top bid so far is Business.tv at $4,000. Other domains to meet their reserves include Germany.tv, Japan.tv, and Jobs.tv. It will be interesting to see how this auction goes given that VeriSign just dropped the price on thousands of premium .tv domain names. It certainly lowered the floor for this auction and reduced the amount of capital available to invest. Conversely, the move also sparked renewed interest in .tv.

Domain Madness 2 Auction Ends Tuesday

March 22, 2010domain auction, domain madness, Domain Sales, Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Domain Madness 2 Auction Ends Tuesday

Second annual “Domain Madness” auction runs through Tuesday.

Domain MadnessDomain Consultant’s Domain Madness 2 auction ends Tuesday afternoon. Live online bidding is available at DomainMadness2.com. Domain Consultant is giving away a free iPad to one lucky person who registers for the auction (no bidding is necessary).

The quality of domains in the auction this year is substantially better than last year’s, with some uber-premium domain names to choose from. But you’ll need to bring your pocket book:

Strawberries.com $100,000
Races.com $90,000
Mad.com $250,000
Idol.com $150,000
HappyBirthday.com $1,450,000
Balloon.com $250,000

A number of the no reserve, low priced domains have already received bids.

To the select few who made the trip to Las Vegas for Domain Madness, have a great time. I went last year and had a blast.

Domain Madness 2 Set for Las Vegas

March 10, 2010domain madness, Domain Services, Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Domain Madness 2 Set for Las Vegas

Second domain name auction in Las Vegas scheduled for later this month.

Domain MadnessDomainConsultant premiered “Domain Madness” last year, a (mostly) online auction that was broadcast live from The Palms in Las Vegas. They’re back at it again this year, organizing an auction that will conclude on March 23.

This year’s auction will be limited to only a dozen or so premium domain names, and the auction will take place online at OneofaKind.comsite to be named soon. The sales commission is 8%.

Last year’s event was supposed to be online only, but the group organized a last minute trip to Vegas. This year will have a small crowd, as DomainConsultant invited a handful of people who were willing to pay up for an all-inclusive 48 hours in Vegas. Sounds like fun, but I won’t be able to make the last minute trip this year.

The 2009 event sold $150,000 in domain names. Here’s some video from the KingPin suite at The Palms, where the event took place.
