RightOfTheDot and NameJet have partnered to launch the industry’s most premier domain name auction that is currently taking place online on the NameJet website in conjunction with the live domain name auction that will be held at NamesCon 2017 on January 23rd from 3 PM – 6 PM PST.
RightOfTheDot, LLC is the leading Internet domain name sales, brokerage, auction, consulting and advisement firm in the domain industry. Combined with NameJet’s premier aftermarket domain name auction platform and the heavily attended NamesCon conference, this collaboration will produce one of the most exciting domain events of the year - with more than 1,400 domain industry professionals attending.
The auctions will feature some of the best .com and new gTLD names available anywhere including a super premium bundled lot featuring BAR.COM, BAR.NET, CAFES.COM, GRILL.COM, PLACE.COM, PUB.COM SHELTER.COM, and other individual premium and super premium names such as LEADS.COM, SPORTSCARS.COM, PATTY.COM, STOP.COM, WINECLUB.COM, GOLD.CLUB, SINGLE.COM, E.HOSTING, MORTGAGE.BROKER, PPL.NET, and 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. Many premium domains will be priced at no and low reserves to promote competitive bidding and true market prices. Additional domain names will be considered for inclusion by submitting names at http://rotd.com/auction-submission/. Please note that only ultra-premium names will be considered. Accepted names will be added continually to pre-bidding before the start of NamesCon so you will want to check the auction page often for new additions and bidding activity.
The last 2 NamesCon auctions 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, PENIS.COM - $110,000, 88.XYZ - $70,000, and WEB.HOSTING - $52,500, among many others.
“We are excited to be working once again with Monte Cahn of RightOfTheDot and NamesCon in this exclusive auction event.” said Scott Pruitt, Marketing Director, NameJet. “Considering the success we had last year, we expect this event to be even better.”
