Valuable domain names will be sold in live auction next week.
The auction starts at 4:30 pm on Thursday, January 30 at the Omni Hotel in downtown Austin.
In addition to live bidding, remote bidding is available through ProxyBid.
The auction list hasn’t been set yet, but pre-bidding is running on GoDaddy Auctions. On January 27th, the final list of domains will be selected based, in part, on pre-bidding activity. At that point, bidding will continue in the live auction.
Several domains have high bids in pre-bidding, although most of these have not met their reserves. Add.com has a $201,000 bid but the reserve is over $500,000. Illionois.com is at $102,000 with a reserve somewhere between that price at $500,000.
Names that have met their reserves include HRB.com at $18,550, MGV.com at $8,000, Med.org at $5,200 and 70a.com at $3,050.
