NameJet Auction 20 .Dance Domain Names

Dot DanceNameJet is teaming up with the .Dance Registry to auction 20 premium reserved .Dance domain names. Although I am not into dance or dancing (as my wife can attest), it looks like a few of the best .Dance combos will be up for auction.

In my opinion, the three most relevant .Dance domain names in this auction include:

  • Line.Dance (Never done it)
  • Swing.Dance (Tried it once at Rustler’s Roost when I was a kid)
  • Pole.Dance (Vaguely heard of it)

The minimum bid for each auction is $69, and the auction page says “each of the domains are priced with low reserves and will sell.” You can place your backorder for the domain names at any time, and the auctions will close in a little more than three weeks from now. The renewal prices are reported as “around $60-80, depending the registrar.”

It seems that many (perhaps most) new gTLD domain registries are protecting their top tier domain names and not making them available for people to hand register. This is probably smart on the part of the domain registries, and it makes auctions like these more interesting because domain investors are able to see what values the domain names have in the secondary market.
