Earlier this week, I bought my first .AI domain names. I have been looking at aftermarket options, but my level of risk tolerance for these domain names is below what it would take to purchase anything worthwhile right now. As a result, my first .AI domain names were hand registrations.
The alternatives to hand registering domain names are aftermarket acquisitions or expiry auctions operated by the .AI registry.
The issue, in my view, with private acquisitions is that registrants of the best .AI domain names who are willing to sell know these names have become popular and want top dollar. That’s understandable. I would, too.
The operator of the .AI extension hosts monthly expiry auctions. The current auction began last week, and the auctions will conclude on February 5th. I have yet to bid on an auction but have been tempted a few times. FOMO.
Are you going to bid on any of this month’s .AI expiry auctions?
