.NYC chooses Sedo for tourism auction

Good tourism domain names will head to the auction block in May.

Neustar will run an auction for tourism-related .NYC domain names next month. The auction will run May 3-May 10. Some of the domains in the auction include:


Bidders must either live or own a business in New York City.

This is the fourth registry auction for .NYC domains and the first to be held on Sedo.

The first auction for real estate names was on NameJet. It pulled in over $70,000 in sales led by RealEstate.nyc for $21,300.

The registry then held two auctions on SnapNames. The first was for fashion domains and had about $90,000 in bids. However, the top sale in that auction (Fashion.nyc for $37,000) doesn’t appear to have ever closed. The second SnapNames auction for tech names ended with $29,000 in sales.

    I think the switch to Sedo will help ease some of the auction process. I had a few issues during the NYC auction at SanpNames. I was using their mobile app and mobile site my phone and everything from maintaining a login session, to seeing and clicking on the bid icon went wrong.
