There was a live domain auction held at the Webfest Global conference at the beginning of February, and the auction yielded close to $600,000 in domain name sales. Domain names that didn’t sell, as well as additional names, are now included in the Webfest 2013 extended auction. The auction, which is running on SnapNames, will end tomorrow.
As of the time of this article, 22 domain names currently have bids in the auction. The domain name with the highest bid of $35,000 is Hum.com, although the high bid is not in the reserve price range yet. Most of the auctions with bids are “No Reserve” auctions, so these domain names will sell to the highest bidder.
Price notwithstanding, my five favorite domain names that are up for sale include Animation.com, Bali.com, Bows.com, Jambalaya.com, and WebsiteBrokers.com. None of these domain names have a bid as of right now.
If you are interested in buying any of the domain names listed in the Webfest auction, you have until tomorrow to place your bid. If you are interested in a domain name that doesn’t happen to sell, be in touch with John Mauriello of Moniker to try and work out a deal after the auction closes.
