Sedo is running a travel-related domain auction beginning this afternoon (March 24) at 1pm EST and running through March 31, 2011. There are over 225 domain names in this auction, and all of them are related to travel (or could be related to travel). There are many ccTLD domain names included in this auction, and some of the prices are in Euros instead of dollars (so keep that in mind if you decide to bid).
My 5 favorites from the auction include:
- Philadelphia.org 25,000 – 49,999 USD Reserve
- HotelNews.com 25,000 – 49,999 USD Reserve
- VisitPanamaCity.com 5,000 – 9,999 USD Reserve
- HolidayBlog.com 1 – 499 EUR Reserve
- Touring.com 25,000 – 49,999 USD Reserve
What are your thoughts on this auction? Do the ccTLD domain names make sense, and how do you think they’ll do?
Diaclaimer: Although I own several VisitCity .com domain names, I do not have any domain names in this particular auction. I may bid on one or more domain names, and the link to the auction is NOT an affiliate link.
Is the link up there leading to the travel auction? Can´t seem to find a direct link to it on Sedo´s website at the moment neither.
Probably this one:
In general I think the inventory is poor. When you consider the huge potential and therefore competition in online travel, a mediocre domain name is not going to cut it. In particular I’m surprised to see so many dot biz domains which just aren’t going to provide a strong foundation for a successful travel website. JMHO
But, a good amount already received bids, incl. some of the .biz domains.
Funny, I checked holidaysblog and it was expiring today so i grabbed it. I’m not sure if that’s a good name but well it’s done deal and I think it could worth more than reg fee.
