Sedo to Repeat .mobi Auction

According to a post on DomainNameNews.com and a post on NamePros, Sedo will be repeating the recent .mobi auction. In an email to clients, Sedo and the .mobi MTLD decided that the results of the recent auction would be null and void after some technical glitches occurred. As reported here, the initial auction set a sales record for total value of .mobi names sold ($1.5 million) and for the highest sales price for a .mobi name – $616,000 for Music.mobi.

.mobi MTLD and Sedo announced that they will will conduct a new auction at Sedo.com beginning on January 23rd, 2008. Coincidentally, this falls on the same day as the Snapnames/DomainFest live auction in Hollywood, California.

Sincere Thanks!

I would like to thank my colleagues in the domain industry who casted their votes for me in the first round of the Domainers Choice Awards voting. Because of you, I am listed among some of the domain industry greats in the “Best Domainers Blog” category and the “Domainers Rising Star” category in the final round of voting.

I post in my blog every day because I love discussing everything related to domain names. I have learned so much along the way, and I love to share what I have learned. Every new endeavor is a learning experience, and I am happy to give a helping hand. Many people feel isolated in the domain industry, and the more we communicate, the greater the chance of growth within the industry.

I sincerely appreciate your casting your votes for me in the first round. It means alot to me.
