Where Would You Like to See NamesCon Global 2021?

NamesCon Global 2020 is in the books. I had been wanting to visit Austin for quite some time, and the NamesCon conference was the perfect reason to make the trip. Beyond the conference, I thought Austin was an interesting city with great food.

It was easy and pretty cheap for me to fly to Austin non-stop from Boston, and although I stayed in the Omni Hotel, there were quite a few other options for different budgets. In speaking with other attendees,

NamesCon Live Auction List With Reserves

Monte Cahn (Right of the Dot) emailed me with the NamesCon live auction list, including the domain names, auction order, and reserve price ranges. This list is shared below, although you should confirm details with Right of the Dot, GoDaddy Auctions, or Proxibid to ensure accuracy before participating in the auction as it might be subject to change.

The live auction will be held in the main conference hall on Thursday, January 30th at 4pm Central Time. Bidding in the live auction can also be done via Proxibid. Registration for Proxibid is required, and I believe floor bidders will also need to register for a paddle before the auction.

Here are the domain names in the live auction along with their reserve prices:

While domain investors and domain industry companies are coming together to do business at NamesCon in Austin this coming week, I want to highlight two fundraising efforts that will be happening during the conference.

Here are the details about these two fundraising efforts:

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.
