Hits Reserve at NamesCon Auction (Updated) is arguably one of the top domain names listed in the NamesCon domain name auction. The domain name did not hit its reserve price of more than $1,000,000 during the live auction, but it looks like it hits its reserve price during the extended auction:

I do not recognize the leading NameJet bidder alias, evstratov. It is possible that the high bidder signed up specifically for the auction or perhaps the bidder is not a regular NameJet auction participant. Whatever the case, I presume the bidder has been verified.

The domain name auction, as well as the other domain names in the extended auction, wraps up later on today. The largest sale in the live auction was, a domain name that sold for $900,000. Assuming sells for $1.2 million or more, it would be the largest domain name sale of the year.

Thanks to Michael Bilde for bringing this to my attention.

Update: sold today for $1.2 million.

  1. Thanks Elliot! Yes this is an end user I have been negotiating with for some time. It’s going to be a great overall auction! One of the best I have done. I expect several sales after this extended auction as well.

  2., were best domains in auction imo. Truly one of a kind domains. Opportunity to buy will probably not arise again for long time. Congrats to buyers and sellers assuming they close.
