Daily Poll: Do You Monitor Domain Names You Don’t Win?

Each day, I can be a participant in anywhere from 1 or 2 domain name auctions to maybe a couple dozen give or take. I actively bid on a handful of domain names each day, and as I find the prices creeping higher and higher, I have been buying fewer names at auction.

As names are sold, I sometimes wonder who is willing to pay so much for certain domain names. Because of the amount of names I bid on, I don’t really keep track of what happens to the names after the auctions conclude. On occasion, I will look at some of my bidding lists and do a Whois lookup to see who the winning bidder was. I am sure others do the same thing. Some people may follow these sales more closely than others, and I bet some people don’t even care. They lose an auction, and the domain name is not of interest any longer.

Do you monitor domain names you don’t win at auction to see who bought them?
