  • Thoughts on yesterday’s $1 million domain name auction

    A strong auction with a headline-grabbing .club sale but dominated by .com.

    By now you’ve probably read a bit about yesterday’s Right of the Dot domain name auction at NamesCon. Here are my takeaways:

    1. The auction sold just shy of $1 million worth of domain names. It’s not the glory years of 7 or 8 years ago, but that’s a total I don’t think we’ve seen in a while at a domainer conference auction.

    2. The sell-through rate of about 65% is excellent. ROTD was able to seed the auction with domains guaranteed to sell by doing pre-bidding on the SnapNames platform. Click to continue reading…

  • Vegas.club changes hands in $100k deal

    Vegas.club site plans unveiled during NamesCon.

    .Club has a second $100,000 deal under its belt as part of its Startup.club initiative.

    One Degree World Systems, Inc. acquired the domain name Vegas.Club and plans to launch a members-only site for deals, concierge services and more.

    One Degree CEO Howard Lefkowitz unveiled plans for the site today at NamesCon in Las Vegas. You can see video of the presentation here.

    Although the $100,000 price is nice for .Club, they might get even more mileage out of having a .Club domain name widely promoted. Lefkowitz is a promoter and has big plans for other new TLDs he has acquired, including many under .Buzz, .Ninja and .Vegas domain names.

    Auction will have just 30 lots.

    Heritage Auctions has finalized the list of 30 lots it will auction off in next month’s domain name auction.

    This is probably the smallest number of domain names to be auctioned in a live auction event, and it will be interesting to see how this approach works.

    Some of the more interesting domain names include:

    • NL.com
    • AT.com
    • Future.com
    • SmartWatches.com
    • Quick.com
    • Import.com
    • Equity.com
    • Arcade.com
    • Classic.com
    • Corn.com
    • An LLL .net Portfolio of (84) Domains

    The auction will be held February 9 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City.
