January 10, 2017
NEW YORK, NY – The technology industry’s premier web name auction will take place live from Las Vegas on Monday, January 23, 2017 from 3:00 PM – 6 PM PST. Internet company RightOfTheDot, LLC a leading domain name brokerage has joined with NameJet, LLC, to auction a long list of rare domain name addresses at the NamesCon conference, an event expected to draw more than 1,400 domain industry professionals.
The auction will feature what are considered to be “super premium” web addresses including short, rare generic names such as LEADS.COM, BAR.COM, SPORTSCARS.COM, SALES.NET, MURDER.NET, EARRINGS.NET and hundreds of others. There will be an estimated 400 names in the overall auction with an estimated 125 domains being offered at the live auction on January 23rd 2017. Many premium domains will be priced at no and low reserves to promote competitive bidding and true market prices. Additionally, new web addresses ending in near everything you could imagine will also be featured such as names ending in .property, .education, and .online; a new naming mechanism introduced by ICANN and made available due to the general declining availability of meaningful Internet addresses.
The last two NamesCon auctions held in 2015 and 2016 resulted in over $3.5 million in sales and included notable names such as HOMECARE.COM – $350,000, WINE.CLUB – $140,000, CARAUCTIONS.COM – $90,000, CM.NET – $17,000, LAWN.COM – $240,000. TUSCANY.COM – $157,000, and WEB.HOSTING – $52,500, among many others.
