Moniker limits domain submissions to 250 and provides additional guidelines.
Responding to results and criticism of recent live domain name auctions, Moniker is setting a limit to auction submissions to April’s TRAFFIC auction.
Domain owners may submit a maximum of 250 domains to the auction. Frankly, this number is still too high but is a step in the right direction. If they’re truly looking for the best domains, they should try limiting it to 10 or 20 per person.
The company also provided guidelines on which domains are more likely to be accepted for the auction.
One and two word domains, especially:
-A popular commerce and/or seach engine vertical (e.g. travel, debt relief, jobs, music)
-Word(s) or phrase that is easy to remember and spell (e.g. meaningful when spoken together, such as GoForIt.com rather than ForItGo.com)
Low reserve prices:
-Reserves under $1,000 are very likely to end up in the auction catalog (although that could be the silent auction)
-Reserves should not be “asking prices”
-Domains with traffic and/or revenue numbers from a reliable source
Domains can be submitted through Moniker’s web site submission form by March 27.
