GasPrices.com sold for $225K at Moniker's domain name auction

More than $2.5 million in domain names were bought during Moniker's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East live auction last week in Orlando. The Pompano Beach domain-name registrar sold 105 domain names during the four-hour event.

One of the top-selling names was GasPrices.com at $225,000. Other top sells included:

  • Insurancerates.com for $225,000
  • Rainbow.com for $170,000
  • Athlete.com for $122,000
  • ow.com for $120,000
  • Ringtones.org for $120,000
  • Track.com for $92,500
  • Computerparts.com for $80,000
  • Grass.com for $70,000

I didn't attend the Orlando auction, but I have been to Moniker's previous auctions in Hollywood. The Orlando auction seems pretty tame in comparison.

In October 2007, Computer.com went for $2.2 million in Hollywood. At Hollywood's 2006 auction, Cameras.com sold for $1.5 million and bidders spent more than $4.7 million in total.

Hi,
I just like to update you on auction. It looks like there was $3.3 million sold! http://www.dnjournal.com/lowdown.htm

Bridget

Thanks for the heads up, Henry. I wasn't counting the online silent auction that was going on through yesterday. DomainRegistration.com sure was a big sell at $346,480!

Andy

I wonder how much money I can get for iwishihadregisteredcomputer.com.com.

Dan

I never had much luck with Moniker eventhough we have good names like MoneyFast.com, Flagit.com and MuscleBoats.com. They were never picked for their auction. I don't think it was price because I used Moniker's auction results for similar names.

Henry

Bridget, I have another heads up on the auction.
It looks like Israel.com which had a reserve of $5.5 million finally closed and sold for $5.88 million. Read at, http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/989326.html

cheap domain names

the prices of these domains are crazy. but whoever buys these domains will get thier money back from them.
