Bidding / Registration Now Open for and Auctions

Earlier this month, I wrote about the upcoming domain name auctions for,, and that are being managed by Hilco Streambank. Bidder registration for these (and other) auctions is now opened.  The online auction will run on the Hilco website from October 14 – 17, 2013.

The reserve prices for these and other domain name auctions have been released by Hilco. The opening bid amounts are as follows:

  • – $200,000
  • – $200,000
  • – $150,000

Other domain names that are included in this auction are,,,, and others.

After receiving feedback from bidders in the domain investment space, the company has improved the sign-up and bidding process, making it easier to participate. In order to bid (to help prevent non-paying bidders), a $500 deposit is required when you sign up, or a bidder can deposit $10,000 to bid on all lots in the auction (includes other domain names I didn’t mention).

To see all of the auction lots and reserve prices, to register to bid on the auctions, or if you have any questions, visit the Hilco Streambank website.

    • LOL I agree…

      As Rick Schwartz mentioned in his article, the comparison with AM radio makes little to no sense to paraphrase.

      Whatever “wins out” over dot com in the future will have to be the MOST marketed domain extension on the planet EVER! And may I add for several years if not decade(s). Does anyone see that happening, if so which lottery ticket extension will you buy, only XXX to chose from lol
