Ignite.com Leads the Way at Great Domains Auction

The first Great Domains auction of 2015 hosted by Sedo ended this morning, and Ignite.com sold for $112,500. The reserve price on Ignite.com had been set between $50,000 – $100,000. In total, the auction grossed a bit under $130,000 in sales, with 6 domain names selling.

I know that Sedo broker Dave Evanson had been reaching out to end user buyers to sell Ignite.com, and there is a good chance one of those contacts was the buyer given the final sale price. Once payment is made and the domain name transfers, I will follow up on this if there seems to be a good story about the acquisition. There are quite a few companies that would benefit from owning Ignite.com, and “ignite” would make an excellent brand name.

The second highest sale of the auction was Wardrobes.com, which sold for 9,999 GBP. The list of the 6 domain names that sold is published below. I presume you may contact Sedo if you would like to discuss any of the other domain names that were listed but did not sell.

  • alerts.info EUR 99
  • wardrobes.com GBP 9999
  • cabriolets.net EUR 99
  • refresh.it EUR 999
  • mafia.it EUR 2900
  • ignite.com $US 112500

Since the auction ended today, I don’t believe any of these deals closed yet.
