GoDaddy.com .info auction ends today, Social.info over $7,000
Friday, January 25th, 2013
Auction of over 100 domain names is led by Social.info.
An auction of 135 registry-held .info domain names ends today on GoDaddy.com.
The top domain so far is social.info, which has 80 bids and is up to $7,305. (Social.com sold for $2.6 million in 2011.)
Home.info, Computer.info, Fashion.info, and Test.info have all been bid up over $5,000.
In a previous .info auction the top sales were cancer.info (which sold for $16,005 to an Arizona home care agency) and loans.info (which sold for $12,205).
All of the domain names in the auction were claimed during the .info sunrise in 2001, but the claims were later ruled to be unmerited.
I’m hard pressed to come up with a way these .info domains will hold their value after other generic top level domains hit the market in the next year or two.
