Auction timing is a mixed bag.
Sedo’s .uk domain name auction featuring 30 .co.uk and .org.uk domain names ends tomorrow.
So far three of the thirty domains have received bids and met their reserves. The top domain is moviedatabase.co.uk at 210 GBP.
I spot checked five domains and they were all owned by Sedo subsidiary DomCollect, so this appears to be a house auction.
On one hand, the timing for the end of this auction couldn’t be better. The company announced the blockbuster sale of webhosting.co.uk for $500,000 yesterday.
On the other hand, Nominet’s plans to release second level .uk domains (and not necessarily give them to the owner of an existing equivalent third level domain) has to give pause to potential buyers.
Sedo also has a .de auction kicking off tomorrow that appears to be DomCollect names.
