TRAFFIC to Feature Multiple Live Domain Auctions


An industry first is going to happen at the TRAFFIC New York show in September. For the first time in domain industry history, there are going to be multiple auctions presented by multiple auction houses. Although I don’t know who the auction houses will be, I would anticipate this will create more competition, leading to more favorable domain sales agreements.
I look forward to shorter exclusivity periods, quicker domain transfers, quicker payments for sales, and lower commission rates.

  1. When things are not working any more, change is needed. Live auction sales have been going down and down. This should help in a couple ways for the seller as options are a good thing, but I am not sure besides interfaces that this will effect the buyer.
    I would have to think Sedo, Afternic or NameJet want some action but it could also be a new player…
