Houses.co.uk leads premium domain name auction.
Moniker’s “make up” auction from last week’s Barcelona conference has found a home for five more domains on top of the multi-million dollar sale of Data.com to Salesforce.com. Data.com was pulled from the auction after Salesforce.com made a significant offer on the domain name.
The sales included:
It’s worth noting that Houses.co.uk started with no reserve, which helped attract 19 bidders.
Social.com received a $2.5 million dollar bid but failed to meet its reserve. Here are some other domains that failed to meet the reserve:
WorldClock.com, Premed.com, and BodySculpting.com were part of my “picks” for the auction. There was one bidder for WorldClock.com but he kept bidding the price up to find the reserve. The domain name is owned by CNN and has a reserve of up to $50,000.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of action on some of these domains over the next few weeks.
