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.
