Cheers & Beers with Radix at NamesCon

0

I received an event invitation from Radix, and I was given permission to share it publicly with readers. Radix is hosting an event dubbed “Cheers & Beers” during next week’s NamesCon conference in Austin. The free (and public) event will be hosted by Radix in the company’s booth on the NamesCon conference floor. The event will be held from 3:30 – 4:30 pm on Thursday, January 30th at booth #5.

Because the event is being held on the conference floor, it is only open to NamesCon attendees (who are 21+ years old). If you have any questions for Radix or have questions about the company’s extensions, this is probably the best time to ask.

How to Bid on Domain Names in NamesCon Live Auction

The NamesCon live domain name auction will be held on Thursday, January 30, 2020 at 4:30pm Central Time. The auction is being held via GoDaddy Auctions this year, but the live domain name auction will be held via Proxibid. In order to bid remotely via Proxibid, advance registration is required.

Video: Monte Cahn Talks NamesCon Auction

Once again, Monte Cahn (from Right of the Dot) is responsible for organizing and managing the NamesCon auction that is scheduled for January 30, 2020. There will be a live auction held during the NamesCon conference, and that will be followed by a silent, extended auction that runs through February 14th. The biggest change this year is that the auction will be running via GoDaddy Auctions rather than NameJet.

Monte shared a video interview he did with the 27.be website where he discussed the upcoming auction:
