Domain Roundtable Auction Nets $500k

The Domain Roundtable live auction was held yesterday in Washington DC, and despite audio and video broadcasting problems, the auction netted $498,100. The largest sale of the day was for, a domain name owned by Yahoo!, which sold for $380,000 to a bidder in the audience. In addition, the Internet Commerce Association also raised over $10,000 from the sale of donated domain names.

IMO, the biggest steal of the auction was for $750. The DRT extended auction runs between now and June 24th. If you saw a name you like, continue to check in on the auction as the prices may be adjusted to encourage a sale, as I’ve seen in the past.

For the full results, have a look at DNN, where Frank Michlick did a live blog of the auction.

  1. I’m still waiting for the Elliot-branded Auction. Latona is hogging all the personal-branded auctions.

    Think bigger than what you’re doing Elliot. at 10% commission, you could net $100k in the two days…
