Domain marketplace gets ready for another three character auction.

Fresh on the heels of a three character .eu domain name auction in which all 771 domain names sold, NameDrive‘s NDX Market is getting ready for a follow on auction.

Starting tomorrow, NDX Market will run an auction for 300 three character country code domain names. The domain names will be in these country codes: .AT, .BE, .CH, .CO.UK, .DE, .ES, .FR, .NL, .PL, .SE.

The auction will run until approximately 5 pm CET on August 17.

In order to participate, bidders must have both a NameDrive and NDX Market account. They also must register to be a certified buyer, which can take up to 48 hours. You can learn more about becoming certified at NDXMarket.com.

MEC.com Hits $41,000 in Great Domains Auction

March 24, 2010Domain Sales, Domaining, Domainnamewire, sedo, three character domainsComments Off on MEC.com Hits $41,000 in Great Domains Auction

Three character domain in the spotlight.

Sedo’s monthly Great Domains auction ends tomorrow, and a three character domain in the auction is attracting a lot of attention.

MEC.com is up to $41,000 with its reserve met. Four different bidders are in on the action. There are a number of companies and acronyms for MEC, and the domain name appears to get substantial traffic. It was just parked on March 18, and Sedo’s stats show over 3,000 visitors to the domain name since then.

Other three character domain names that have met their reserves include bsh.com and lmd.com.

Ski.ch — a Switzerland country code domain name — has met its reserve at 15,500 EUR with 22 bids.

Keep an eye on Software.de. At 50,000 EUR, it’s below its reserve range of 100,000-250,000 EUR, but I expect some action on this domain.

Here are a few lower priced domain names that may be worth bidding on:

Trusting.com – currently $950 with reserve met

Granted.com – reserve is under $1,000

Points.org – reserve met and only $161 so far.

German Lottery Provider Gets NKL.com Back 3 Years After Theft

January 19, 2010Domaining, Domainnamewire, Policy & Law, three character domains, udrp, wipoComments Off on German Lottery Provider Gets NKL.com Back 3 Years After Theft

Lottery wins domain name it says was stolen in 2006.

German state-owned lotto company NKL Nordwestdeutsche Klassenlotterie has won the transfer of the NKL.com domain name, three years after the domain name was allegedly stolen. NKL won the domain name through a WIPO proceeding.

In a strange series of events, it appears the domain name may have been stolen in 2006 but NKL didn’t realize this until 2009. The domain name was set to expire on October 10, 2006. In August 2006, the whois information suddenly changed and the domain was renewed. The whois ownership information then changed several times in the next three years, but the nameservers continued to point the domain name to NKL’s web site. For three years, NKL had no idea the domain name wasn’t under its control.

It wasn’t until the domain name pointed to another web site in 2009 that NKL says it became aware of the alleged theft. NKL alleged the owner of the domain name listed it for sale on expired domain name site NameJet. A look at historical whois records shows that it was likely added to NameJet because it expired on October 10, 2009.

The owner of the domain name didn’t respond to the complaint and the panel awarded the domain to NKL.
