Government Agency Drops NOAA.com Domain Name

NOAA.com is one of the most popular upcoming pending delete domain name auctions at NameJet. The domain name expired on March 3, 2022 and is now in pending delete status. There are currently 24 bids on this domain name, and there are a little more than three days remaining until it works its way through the expiry process and fully deletes. At that point, drop catching services will compete to grab the domain name and auction it.

Donny Deutsch’s Domain Name Expired – Set for Auction

This morning, I was looking through my list of upcoming domain name auctions via Dropping.pro, and I saw a domain name that caught my attention. DonnyDeutsch.com is on today’s expired domain name list and will be auctioned at NameJet if it is not renewed today. The domain name currently has a Network Solutions expiry landing page.

The domain name was created in 2002, and it is registered at Network Solutions. It expired in mid-March of this year.

ROTD to Host Auction for Domain Names and NFTs

2

Right of the Dot (ROTD), the company founded by Monte Cahn, will be hosting an auction featuring domain names and NFTs in a month from now. According to a press release that was distributed today, ROTD is now seeking submissions for the online auction. The auction will be held on February 24, 2022 on the HiBid.com auction platform.

For those who are interested in selling domain names via the auction, the ROTD website has information about submitting domain names for consideration. The criteria for domain names the auctioneers are seeking is listed on the home page. I don’t see information about fees, exclusivity, or other details, so you’ll need to connect with the ROTD team to find out that important information.

Here’s a copy of the press release with information about the auction:

Top Closed Sales in Thought Convergence Auction

Last month, Thought Convergence held a group of auctions on NameJet / SnapNames to sell its domain names. There were quite a few exceptional domain names that sold in the auction, and I had been monitoring the Whois records via DomainTools to be able to track when the auctions were paid for and domain names transferred.

After seeing several of the domain names transfer to new registrants (including Operate.com) I reached out to Newfold Digital (parent of NameJet and SnapNames) to ask for a list of the top sales that have closed. Here are the top 12 sales from the Thought Convergence auctions:

NameJet Extends Auctions Impacted by Technical Difficulties

Yesterday afternoon, I had a tough time visiting NameJet’s website. It seemed that every time I tried to visit an auction page or my control panel, I saw an error message. I frequently saw that NameJet Maintenance landing page, which I asked others about on Twitter:

I heard from others who had the same issues accessing auctions yesterday afternoon. Later on in the day, NameJet’s sister platform, SnapNames, posted an update about the issues on Twitter:

Operate.com Sold for $190,000 on NameJet

Operate.com was sold today for $190,000 in a public auction on NameJet. It looks like there were more than 100 bidders who participated in the auction with at least a backorder. Operate.com was one of the Thought Convergence domain names put into auction at NameJet.

According to NameBio, this is the largest sale on the NameJet platform in at least three years. The $148,134 sale of eShop.com in March of this year was the previous high water mark at NameJet during the past three years.
