Join me online during today’s Moniker auction.
Coming off the heels of yesterday’s successful Rick Latona Auctions event at TRAFFIC in New York, Moniker gets the bill this afternoon starting at 4pm Eastern.
You can join Adam Strong and me in a live chat during the auction. We’ll get started around 3:50 ET. To join, go to tinychat.com/domains, pick a nickname, and enter password domains123. Or just go here.
Here are some of my thoughts on the auction:
.biz – All one and two character .biz domains have no reserve. They will all sell.
SwineFlu.net – $5k-$10k – I think SwineFlu.com sold for about this much, so the .net doesn’t make much sense to me.
eScripts.com – $5k-$10k – Used to be owned by Allscripts before they let it drop. In fact, I think I may have sold it to them, but it may have been another similar domain I’m thinking of.
NewYorkers.com – No reserve, no brainer
HonorRole.com NR – Given that this is a misspelling of HonorRoll.com, I’ve got to think the visitors to this domain aren’t on the honor roll.
NoseJobs.com – $25k-$50k – I helped a previous owner of this domain sell it several years ago. I don’t think it’s worth this much.
TrademarkLawyers.com – $5k-$10k – put up a simple directory site here and get trademark lawyers to advertise…earn your money back quickly.
Zimbabwe.com – $100k-$250k – I’ve given commentary on this one before. Now that Sudan sold for $120k, we have another decent comp on this one. Zimbabwe.com itself sold for $130k at Sedo in 2007. The likely buyer is someone who wants to shed light on the peril in Zimbabwe.
TermLifeRates.com – $2500-$5000 – it’s not “quotes”, but I still like this one
Raspberry.com $25k-$50k – good, brandable name.
Introduction.com $100k-$250k – another domain that has been listed before. Based on permutations of “Introduce”, I think this is priced high.
WoolSuits.com -$1k-$2500 – a great deal
If you have any domains in the auction (or not), feel free to add your commentary.
