Picks for the DNW Snapnames Auction

I think personal domain auctions are great, and both Snapnames and Latonas.com have been working with private domain investors and domain companies to host medium-sized domain auctions on behalf of single parties. If you have enough good, saleable domain names, and you are looking to quickly raise capital, it’s something you may wish to consider.

Andrew Allemann at Domain Name Wire let me know that he and a few other domain bloggers are holding a domain auction at Snapnames, which ends tomorrow. Here are a few of my favorite domain names from the auction (I am not a seller in this auction):

  • Cathleen.com
  • EEV.net
  • MusicPhones.com
  • KansasCity.us
  • DUJ.net

If domain investors weren’t incented to publicize their domain names at auction before, they certainly are now.

Do you think private portfolio domain auctions are going to have legs, or do you think their success will be short lived?

  1. EEV.net was over 13k…not sure how legit this is…

    I like kansascity.us out of the sites listed.

    I have used snap before a few years back…had some issues with buyers actually paying on names they bid on..

  2. I feel that direct auctions are the way to go. I’ve never enjoyed the formats offerred to domainers by the big auction houses like Sedo. Ebay is good quick way to get a domain to market but unfortunately into a buyer’s market. Hope to see good things from these newer outlets.
