Web.nyc pulls in highest bid in latest auction of .NYC domain name.s
.NYC held an auction of technology and entrepreneur-themed domain names on SnapNames that concluded yesterday. The headline result was quite a bit lower than previous auctions.
18 domain names sold for a total of $28,872, led by Web.nyc for $8,638.
Both of those auctions were headlined by major sales. The fashion auction sold Fashion.nyc for $37,000 and Shop.nyc for $33,500. (Fashion.nyc has not transferred yet so it’s not clear that the transaction was completed.) The real estate auction was led by RealEstate.nyc for $21,300.
The absence of one or two key bidders in these auctions can swing the pendulum quite a bit. That said, I’m surprised to see names like Webdesign.nyc sell for under $1,000.
Here are the tech auction results:
