Reserve Ranges Added to NamesCon Auction

Many of the domain names that will be included in the NamesCon auction have already been added to the GoDaddy auction page. As we get closer to the conference, I believe more domain names will be added. Yesterday evening, GoDaddy’s Joe Styler announced that the reserve ranges have been added to auction descriptions. Previously, the auctions with reserve prices simply stated “Reserve Not Met” and did not show the reserve ranges:

Having the reserve ranges is a helpful feature which will allow participants to get an idea of whether a domain name will be available in their price range. There are several domain names that I will likely bid on during the auction, and I would not waste my time following those particular auctions if the low end of the reserve range is already beyond what I would pay.

In order to see the reserve price range for each individual domain name, you will need to click on the “plus” sign to the left of each listing, then click on “Description.”

  1. It’s a welcome change but the reserve ranges are still a bit hidden. I do like all of the exposure GoDaddy is generating for the auction accross their platforms like Afternic and of course GoDaddy Auctions. I never submitted any names before until this year and got 3 of them accepted and listed.

    I did not receive any email confirmation of that however so if the GD, ROTD team is reading this, I suggest you guys notify sellers by email once their names are accepted.
