Two Character .Biz Domain Auctions


You may have noticed the new banner on my blog advertising the upcoming two character .Biz domain name auctions. In total, there will be over 1,000 two letter and number .biz combination domain names auctioned over the next several weeks, including domain names such as PC.biz, We.biz, Yo.biz, He.biz, and many more. This is one of the first times companies and domain investors have the opportunity to bid on these two character domain names.

Recently, it was announced that O.biz would be developed by Overstock.com, and their newly launched website sells mostly restaurant, office, and hotel products, with a focus on small businesses and consumers looking to buy in bulk at greater discounts than are found on the Overstock.com website.

In addition, many single character .Biz domain names were auctioned with some strong results as reported by Andrew at Domain Name Wire:

1.biz $32,003
2.biz $5,801
4.biz $7,601
5.biz $6,100
6.biz $8,100
7.biz $7,877
8.biz $8,200
9.biz $7,901
a.biz $10,099
b.biz $10,005

The .biz domain names that will be in Moniker's live auction are:

-      i.biz
-      ny.biz
-      ez.biz
-      ok.biz

-      hi.biz
-      ha.biz
-      ur.biz
-      lo.biz
-      kc.biz

Other one and two character .biz domain names were recently auctioned, with e.biz achieving the highest sales price, selling for $66,001. Most of the other single character .biz domain names sold primarily in the $5-10,000 range with some higher outliers.
