NamesCon is going to look much, much different this year. Not only is the event being held exclusively online, but it is also being held in September instead of January. One other major change is that the NamesCon domain name auction will be held on GoDaddy Auctions this year, and it appears that the auction is being run entirely in-house.
GoDaddy’s Joe Styler tweeted that the NamesCon auction is now live on GoDaddy Auctions. To access the auction, visit GoDaddy Auctions and choose the NamesCon Auction in the Popular Searches dropdown menu:
And we’re live! @NamesCon domain auction is live. Use the drop down on the popular searches to navigate to the listings. Some great #domains and more to be added soon. https://t.co/g14zlO7BSP pic.twitter.com/38Azr3flBP

People who are interested in participating in the auction can take a first look at some of the domain names that will be included in the auction. The auction is being held from now through September 10th. To view the reserve price ranges, click through to the auction page, and the range will be listed in the description section.
Per a follow up tweet from Joe, more domain names will be added as we get closer to the auction. The auction submission form is still online on the NamesCon website, so those who wish to submit domain names may still do so.
