Data.com to highlight upcoming live domain name auction in Barcelona, Spain.
[Update: Salesforce.com bought the domain name ahead of the auction.]
Publicly traded media company UBM plc has added its Data.com domain name to Moniker’s upcoming live domain name auction in Barcelona. The reserve price is between $1 million and $5 million.
This is a fantastic domain name, especially with the “Big Data” trend in enterprise business.
Although the domain names are only loosely related, another domain with “data” in it is one of the most expensive ever sold: DataRecovery.com, which sold for $1.7 million in 2008.
The live auction will take place at the Pullman Barcelona Skipper Hotel’s Grand Ballroom at 4 p.m. Barcelona time during DOMAINfest Barcelona.
The auction features about 60 domain names, with reserve ranges from “no reserve” to over $5 million. Some of the key domain names include Social.com, Airports.com, and HorseRacing.com.
Pre-bidding for the auction has already started on the SnapNames platform.
