There are two big auctions that start this week at Snapnames. Opening for bidding today is the Premium Year End Auction Auction which features 55 premium names of which all but three are .com. The 1 to 4 Character/ 1 Word ccTLDs Auction opens for bidding tomorrow and has 172 short and one word domains. The domains in this auction are majority .com/.net however there are a few .tv and other ccTLD’s sprinkled in to the mix.
The Premium Year End Auction auction has some great names with reasonable reserve ranges (rr). I particularly like Embed.com ($5k – $10k rr), Chop.com ($25k – $50k rr), MenuPlanner.com ($2.5k – $5k rr), AidsAwareness.com ($2.5k – $5k rr), RateQuotes.com ($10k – $25k rr) and GoOut.com ($1k – $2.5k rr). This auction also features several names in the low to mid six figure reserve ranges including MedicalBilling.com, HouseInsurance.com and DSS.com. Not sure we’ll see a six figure sale from this lot at this time of year but Moniker never ceases to amaze me with some of their sales so I’m holding out hope!
The 1 to 4 Character/One Word ccTLDs Auction is quite interesting. There are a lot of three character and four letter .com names in this auction with smaller or even no reserves. Some of the better names in this auction that I see are Od.com, Zr.com, Ven.com, War.org, Sham.com, Rock.co.uk, Johns.com and 69.org. Since this auction is labeled with the word ‘ccTLDs’, I was expecting to see more than ten ccTLD names when I opened the catalog. Of those ten ccTLD names, six are .tv’s. Another interesting thing I noticed in this auction is the three letter .com domain cxf.com, one of only a handful of LLL.com in the list has a reserve range of only $250-$500. Another couple names I really like in this auction are Segment.com, Wop.com, Mumu.com, Tint.net and 2j.com.
