Auction will be huge if those with big pockets show up.
Next week Moniker will hold an auction at DOMAINfest New York. The list of domain names is by far the best Moniker has ever put together for a live auction. Just look at this sample:
It’s a fantastic list. That doesn’t guarantee success, though. Many of these domains are very, very expensive. Will buyers with enough cash show up? In Moniker’s favor, it released the preliminary list of domains early, which gives seven figure buyers time to coordinate or line up financing.
Hopefully Major League Baseball is paying attention. Athletics.com is on the block, and that’s one of just 7 team names MLB doesn’t own. But it will have to pony up at least a half million to buy it.
