Go Daddy to auction .info “sunrise pending reallocation” domains

Auction features domains originally reserved during 2001 sunrise.

Domain name registry Afilias is working with Go daddy to auction off over 100 domain names claimed in the .info sunrise that were later deemed ineligible.

The 106 domain auction runs December 4 through December 14.

The domains were originally requested during the .info sunrise in 2001. This was one of the first ever “sunrise” periods for a top level domain launch that gave trademark holders first dibs on domains.

As with this sunrise launch and a handful of others after it, the system was largely gamed.

In the case of .info, World Intellectual Property Organization determined that about 1,400 sunrise registrations were invalid.

DomainTools shows that 1,167 domains are still registered to “Afilias Ltd / Sunrise Pending Reallocation”.

The auction includes some good keyword domains such as doctor.info/doctors.info, event.info, and land.info.

All domains start at $100 with no reserves.

It will be really interesting to see how much these domain sell for, especially in light of the impending release of hundreds of competitive top level domains.
