Afternic auction on SnapNames ends tomorrow
Wednesday, September 19th, 2012
Auction features 176 domain names.
Afternic’s first auction on SnapNames earlier this year was a big success. It focused light on some good domain names such as Hipsters.com. That domain sold for $28,500 (which I suspect is a lot more than the original fixed asking price!).
The two companies have teamed up again for an 176 domain auction ending Thursday.
At the time of writing nine domains have bids and five have hit their reserves. The current top domain is PoolandPatio.com, which has met its reserve with a $5,000 bid.
There are a bunch of good mid-tier domain names in the auction. Some of my favorites are:
AirBalloon.com ($1,000-$2,500 reserve) – so many hot air balloon companies could take advantage of this domain
AmazingGetaways.com ($500-$1,000 resere) – excellent travel domain
BathRenovations.com ($1,000-$2,500) – big lead gen category
EuropeanAutoParts.com ($1,000-$2,500) – another big category that would work for an ecommerce site
UniversityApartments.com (2,500-5,000) – student housing continues to be a growth industry, and I also bet there are multiple apartment complexes by this exact name.
