Valuable domain names will be sold in live auction next week.
Right of the Dot is holding its annual live domain name auction in conjunction with NamesCon next week in Austin.
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.

Thank you Andrew! For all those not attending the live auction and want to bid, its important you sign up for remote bidding here: http://www.proxibid.com/rightofthedot and get registered. This is also where the live auction can be viewed. The Extended auction will start when the live auction ends and run until February 14th here: https://auctions.godaddy.com/?t=16&event=7. There has been several price reductions and more names are hitting and exceeding reserve prices so it should be exciting. For those of you attending NamesCon, you will be able to register for you paddle on day one so you are ready to participate in the live event. See you all there!
What happened to Ts.com?
Another Great name!

Ts.com was supposed to be TS.net. Entry error but still at a great price.
Should be updated by now.
