Extended auction fails to live up to success of live auction.
Last week DOMAINfest had a successful live domain name auction. Unfortunately, the extended auction didn’t perform too well.
Only 8 out of 797 domain names sold, or a sell through rate of only 1%.
It’s disappointing, but I’m not terribly surprised. I only came up with five domain names to mention in my preview post a couple days ago. (Mind you, none of the five I chose sold. But it goes to show that it wasn’t easy finding “sure things” in the auction at the reserve prices).
Another anomaly: only two of the domains that sold were .com.
Here are the sales:
Relationship.net and Dedicated.net were peculiar. They each received one bid and fairly early on. I’d also say the prices are rather high for this quality of .net. I can see how the domains are related though.
