Moniker Trims Silent Auction List for TRAFFIC Auction
Wednesday, October 14th, 2009
Moniker shrinks silent auction, online finance auction ends tomorrow.
Responding to complaints about the unwieldy number of domains in its last major silent (extended) domain auction, Moniker has cut the list from about 5,000 to 1,800 for this month’s auction. I’m not sure if the list is small enough even at 1,800, but it’s definitely a move in the right direction.
The live auction will feature 187 domains and will take place on Wednesday, October 28. Top domains include Arbitration.com, OfficeSupply.com, and Bands.com.
But before turning your attention to the big show, Moniker’s sister company SnapNames is holding an online auction featuring 300 domain names related to finance. That auction ends tomorrow. So far only four domains have received bids and three have met their reserves: Silver.net at $11,770, DiscountLoans.com at $761, and BuySmartPhones.com at $300. With so many domains in this auction, it’s possible a few steals will slip through the cracks.
