Moniker Live Auction, The Economy and The Web - Are We There Yet?
Interesting domains at upcomming auction but are there buyers or bargains
Webwork

What appears below is the live auction domains for Moniker's auction at DomainFest New York on August 18th.

Lately, I've taken to "not" looking at lists since a) I'm not in the market; b) Auctions have been pretty quiet events for awhile; c) They've been quiet not only due to a stagnating economy but also due to the domain prices remaining unrealistically high.

The list is a pretty interesting one. Some domains might even be about "right priced" but that begs the question since sales won't happen, even at lower prices, so long as domain auction events don't draw the attention of the enduser market by actively bringing the domains to the market's attention.

So, at these prices and in the current climate I have to ask: Are we there yet? Any domain get your salivary glands all juiced up?

Will it blend? ;)

Was looking at the domains for the Dublin TRAFFIC show next week. The price guidelines should win an Oscar for the best comedy yet. There are supposedly Irish targeted domains that are so completely screwed up in terms of pricing that they are beyond a joke. (The main TLDs in Ireland are .IE/.COM). There are a few .eu domains but they are a joke in terms of value compared to the main ccTLDs in Europe. The .co.uk domains look interesting but seem to be priced for the gullible rather than operators. For all the waffle that some domainers come out with about ccTLDs, I think that they haven't a clue about ccTLD markets and how they differ from the gTLD markets. There are some interesting ones but finding good domains these days is like panning for gold in a sewage farm.

Owning a domain simply to profit from being able to sell it is not only immoral it also impedes the ability for others to think of domain names that don't suck or sound like some sort of acid that will melt your face off.


Interesting theory, I wonder if you walk the streets of your local area and curse at the undeveloped blocks of land?

In the 'real world' real estate developers are considered smart and successful, since when was the internet any different?

How the internet was a great thing for the small guy and such, allowing them to compete with big business! Now everyone has the attitude that the web owes them a favour. Those days are long gone. Adapt or perish, simple really.

A keyword based TLD isn't required to succeed


I agree.

Great Domain
Killer Content
Big Money (for marketing)

I think you need at least 2 out of the 3 to succeed. (Scale them down for a lower amount of success).

Do people think that insurance.com is going to be available for them to slap some generic content on?

Get inventive, or get some money, bring something to the table, stop whining.

The TRAFFIC Dublin auction seems to have been a bit of a washout.
[domainnamenews.com...]

There were a few good domains but a lot of poor quality domains. The prices/reserves were too high. It is 2010 in Dublin but those reserves were straight out of 2007.

Those "results" :P are pathetic. What an embarassing flop.

It's time to stop holding auctions. Period.

If the auction "audience" is going to continue to be 99.9% domainers then stick to sending out emails and holding private auctions.

What an embarassing flop.


Could it be that many companies/individuals now have an adequate "stock" of domain names they want/need for current and/or future use plus many now also realise that it is still pretty easy to be inventive with new names?

If the auction "audience" is going to continue to be 99.9% domainers


And does therein lie the inherent problem? Sellers trying to create a false market and find gullible newbie purchasers?

Realistically, there were some "nice" names available but, in all honesty, just what would one create and put on some of these names and make it worthwhile?

Many of those are priced at what I like to call "Marchex Pricing"


"We know what eight extremely similar domains including the plural of this one recently sold for and none of them were over $2k. What makes this domain worth mid-five figures?"

"We don't deal in domains under $50k."

If the auction "audience" is going to continue to be 99.9% domainers then stick to sending out emails and holding private auctions.


Or get rid of the reserves, hold an actual auction, and let the market work instead holding grand displays of just how out of touch domain investors are. Plenty of domainers would bid if it weren't for the fantastical reserves on those listings.

The problem with the TRAFFIC Dublin auction was twofold. The most obvious was the insane reserves on lacklustre domains. The less obvious one was the poor quality of many of the domains. Unlike the US, most of Europe has strong ccTLDs in each country. Some of these ccTLDs are larger than the .com market share for those countries. Other TLDs like .net, .org etc are third or fourth choice registrations at best. The .eu ccTLD is a joke in the European Union and taken on a country by country basis (Eurid publishes country by country break downs of registrations), it represents, on average, less than 10% of each country's domain footprint. There were some good domains at auction but the reserves killed most of them. As for the old aphorism about the US and the UK being two countries separated by a common language, the Americanisms such as babydiapers.co.uk and bookstores.co.uk demonstrated that what may work in the US dominated .com does not work in the UK.

A keyword based TLD isn't required to succeed, in fact the biggest and most successful sites online have more unique and brandable domain names


True, but I have been trying to sell a 4 letter name with a format of VCVC.com for LOW four figures and no one is interested.

Wonder how much NBC paid for HULU
