According to an email sent to people on the company’s domain industry mailing list, Heritage Auctions is “now accepting premium domain submissions for exclusive February auction.” Judging by some of the domain names used as examples, they are truly looking for the best of the best when it comes to domain names for this auction.
The email came from Aron Meystedt, Director of the Intellectual Property Department at Heritage Auctions, and submissions should be sent directly to him for review.I do not have any details about the event, bidding, or anything else regarding the auction, so if you have any questions about it, you should direct them to Aron.
For your convenience, the content of the email I received is below:
It has been just over one year since Heritage Auctions took the leap into domain names, intellectual property and digital assets. Heritage has logged several million dollars in premium domain sales via auctions and our private brokerage services. This press release outlines the highlights of the past year for this department.
Heritage Auctions is continually seeking to improve our services for both buyers and sellers. With that in mind, our next domain auction is going to have a new look. We are now taking submissions for a very exclusive February domain name and IP auction, which will feature a maximum of 20 of the best domain names available on the Internet. This will be an exclusive event featuring an increased promotional effort through the mainstream press. We plan on targeted promotion through the Wall Street Journal, increased marketing to venture capitalists and entrepreneurs as well as continued promotion to investors.
We are seeking domain names that fit ANY of these requirements:.
One word .com domains which are generic in nature, but ideal for branding.
Examples: Blue.com, Free.com, Cool.com
One word .com domains which define a category.
Examples: Tablets.com, Sneakers.com, Print.com
Short two and three letter .com acronyms.
Examples: HA.com, QR.com, KIO.com
One and two word .com domain names that pertain to finance, banking, the markets and luxury.
Examples: Luxury.com, MutualFunds.com, Bank.com, StockMarket.comWe will allow reserve prices, but they must be attractive to entice bidder participation.
Please make your submissions directly to Aron Meystedt, Director of the Intellectual Property Department:
