DNW Picks for Tomorrow’s DOMAINfest Extended Auction

Domains to watch in tomorrow’s auction.

The extended auction for last week’s DOMAINfest Global power networking day in Fort Lauderdale ends tomorrow at 3:15 EDT. After looking through the list I came up with 5 extended domain auctions I think are worth a look. There were plenty of good domain names, but many of the ones I got excited about had reserves that I think are too high for investors.

CharterPlanes.com $11,770 – I’m not quite sure on this because I’m not sure if the lingo is “charter plane” (singular), “charter a plane”, “plane charter”, etc.

Cosmetician.com $3,420 – great for licensing or training program

EmployeeFeedback.com $590 – an entire category of surveying/HR company

FireAnts.com $9,420 – I think this is one of the best domains in the auction. The price is a bit higher than where it would be a no-brainer, though. If you’re not from the South you might not understand how big a deal fire ants are. My first experience with them resulted in a trip to the hospital. There are scores of companies selling services to fight the ants (lawn services, pesticides, allergists).

Kidnap.com $11,770 – at first glance it might be difficult to see what to do with this domain. It would be good for a kidnapping insurance company, but is also somewhat brandable for a game.

Some of the domains I picked for the live auction didn’t sell. Now that I know the actual reserves for them, here are the ones I think are still worth a look.

Collapsed.com $2,000 – valuable if you have a site idea, possible gaming domain.

Petroleum.net $5,770 – as I stated before, it’s a bit rich for a .net. But oil is rich, too.

Bidding takes place online here.
