Poker.com Domain Name Up for Sale


I read a report that Poker.com is for sale and being brokered by Right of the Dot. I reached out to Right of the Dot CEO Monte Cahn, and he confirmed that his company is actively seeking a buyer for this high value domain name. Monte shared that the owner is seeking $20 million for Poker.com.

Monte has a pretty large list of prospective buyers for Poker.com. The domain name seems like a perfect fit for a company that operates in the online poker space. A casino - either virtual or brick and mortar - might also be a good prospect for Poker.com. There are other organizations and businesses related to the world of poker that might also have an interest in this domain name.

While $20 million seems quite high for a domain name, there have been quite a few large gambling domain name sales. According to NameBio, the 5 largest publicly reported gambling related domain name sales are: (more…) → Read More

NamesCon Auction Details and Submission Info


With the NamesCon 2018 conference a few months away, the domain name auction is starting to take shape. Monte Cahn from Right of the Dot is helping to organize the auction event, and he shared some details about the auction as well as some information about submitting domain names to be sold via auction.

Monte shared these details about the types of domain names that are being sought out for the auction:

"I am looking for the best super premium .com names - meaning key words, dictionary terms in proper tense, N, NN, NNN, L, LL, LLL, etc. These will be at no and low reserve to drive as much bidding competition and bidding excitement as possible.

Although there will be some new TLDs, we will not get most of those from submitters, some will come from the registries and some from registrants but we will not allow any names with premium priced renewals or crazy tiered pricing, etc. But point is, that I am not looking for new TLDs from registrants yet for the auction - just super premium .com names for now."

The auction will be run → Read More

Submit Domain Names for DomainFest Macau Auction


The DomainFest conference in Macau is coming up in just under a month from now, and I received an email seeking out domain name submissions for an auction that will take place during the event. The auction is being conducted by Right of the Dot, and it will take place on the 4.cn domain name marketplace. The auction will be held online from September 2nd - 10th.

As you can probably imagine, it looks like the auction organizers are only seeking out high quality domain names that would appeal to the market. The types of domain names they suggested are high value liquid domain names, particularly short names, numeric domain names, and possibly some short one word domain names.

For your convenience, I have published the email I received below. Before you submit your list of domain names, you should probably carefully review the types of domain names they are seeking. (more…) → Read More

Measles.com Domain Name is for Sale


Measles is a disease that was reported as eliminated in the United States in 2000, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Most babies born in the US receive an immunization shot for the measles in a vaccine that generally covers measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). With that said, it's a bit of a surprise that there has been a measles outbreak in the United States reported by many news outlets. The outbreak hasn't been as large or as deadly as the Ebola outbreak, but it is concerning.

I was curious who owns the Measles.com domain name, and it appears to be owned by a healthcare company. The domain name  is currently parked with pay per click advertising links, and you'll see a banner across the top of the landing page announcing that Measles.com  is for sale. After a bit of searching, I learned that Measles.com is being  brokered exclusively by Right of the Dot.

I reached out to Right of the Dot co-founder Monte Cahn, and he (more…) → Read More
