As you can see from the banner that is now rotating on my blog, Hilco Streambank is marketing the individual auctions of two exceptional domain names: DL.com and Row.com. The auctions, which take place on the Hilco website from October 14-17, will also feature the previously mentioned Tweeter.com domain name along with numerous additional offerings.
DL.com is a domain name owned by the New York law firm, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, which filed for bankruptcy in 2012. According to a May 2012 article in the New York Times about the firm, the bankruptcy was notable because it is “the largest law firm collapse in United States history.” I can think of a number of companies that would most likely want to purchase this domain name.
Row.com is a domain name that appears to be registered to a Los Angeles based company called Talei LLC. I couldn’t find any background information about the company or why the domain name is being auctioned. At the present time, Row.com is being forwarded to StudentFreelance.com.
If you are interested in learning more about the auction or registering in advance to participate, you may visit the auction page or semd an email to Hilco Streambank’s Jack Hazan at jhazan @ hilcoglobal.com. I do not know the reserve prices or opening bids on these domain names.
