Poll: Will JE.com Sell at NameJet?

The valuable two letter JE.com domain name is coming up for auction at NameJet. The high bid stands at $400,000, although the reserve price range is between $500,001 – $600,000. It is currently in Pre-Release status, and then it will go to a three day public auction.

According to NameBio, there have been eight publicly reported LL.com domain names in the last three years. The lowest price achieved for one of these sales was $510,000 for FO.com. The highest price achieved was $3.77 million for HG.com. Undoubtedly, there have been quite a few other LL.com domain name sales in that time, but these often change hands privately (the sale of WW.com is just one example).

With a reasonable reserve range on JE.com, I would like to know if readers think the domain name will hit the reserve and sell at NameJet. Vote in the poll below:

Poll: What is AAF.com Worth?

8

In an article I published yesterday, I speculated that the AAF.com domain name could come on the market due to the Alliance of American Football’s bankruptcy filing. I don’t know the status of the domain name, so I don’t know if the domain name is going to be sold, but I think it is quite valuable.

I am curious what readers think AAF.com could be worth if it were to go on sale or come up for auction. Vote in the poll below and share your thoughts in the comment section:


Poll: Are You Attending NamesCon Europe?

2

NamesCon Europe is coming up in a little more than two months. The conference will be held in Cascais, Portugal, which is a short trip from the capital of Lisbon. NamesCon Europe takes place this year from June 20-22, 2019.

I would say I am 95% committed to attending this NamesCon event. My wife gave me the go-ahead, which is necessary because our kids will still be in school and she won’t be able to travel with me like she did for the ICANN meeting in Barcelona. I just haven’t pulled the trigger on the flight yet but will probably do that in the next few days.

It would be great to know how many of you are attending. Feel free to leave a comment as well.


Poll: Should the “New” Extensions Still be Called “New?”

24

I had a discussion on Twitter with Ray Hackney and Theo Develegas regarding the coloquial naming of the new gTLD domain name extensions. I have almost always referred to them as the “new gTLDs” or something along those lines, and Ray pointed out that they are no longer “new,” having been introduced several years ago.

Ray has a point. These new extensions are not really new. However, from my perspective, they are still relatively new to the general public. In addition, the introduction of the new extensions has taken several years and some are still in the process of being introduced or approved (hello, .Amazon). While they are no longer “new,” they are sort of new and novel.

Poll: How Much is Shopping.com Worth?

44

TechCrunch published an article about EBay shutting down its eBay Commerce Network. The Shopping.com domain name was mentioned in the article because it is used by EBay as a part of its Commerce Network:

“Bridget Davies, eBay’s VP of advertising, confirmed to TechCrunch that as part of the closure, listings that had been run on Shopping.com — which was still active, acting as a “publisher” on the Commerce Network — will also no longer appear. “We’re going to retain the domain, and we’re currently deciding what we will do with the asset,” she said.”

I am curious what readers think Shopping.com is worth today.
