New gTLD .wiki selects Namejet for sunrise, landrush and premium auctions

Top Level Design, LLC, the applicant for the new top level domain .wiki, has selected NameJet, the leading domain name auction platform, to operate the sunrise and landrush auctions and help with future premium auctions.

NameJet provides .wiki the complete auction solution needed to manage the .wiki launch. NameJet’s proven platform, by which millions of names are made available and sold, is poised to help bring new .wiki domain names to market with Sunrise expected to begin in March, 2014. Additional details will be made available on NameJet’s New TLDs page as they become available. “The introduction of the .wiki top level domain is a historic event in the evolution of the Internet and we’re excited to be a part of launching such a dynamic TLD,” said Matt Overman, General Manager of NameJet.

The .wiki TLD will make wikis more valuable through greater visibility and ease of use. Most Internet users are familiar with the concept of wikis, thanks to Wikipedia.org’s status as one of the most highly trafficked websites in the world. “There is something unique and magical about wiki’s revolutionary publishing style that will continue to bring like-minded people together to create amazing and ever growing resources,” said Raymond King, CEO, Top Level Design LLC.

The .wiki TLD is targeting four major demographic markets: enterprise wikis, enthusiast wikis, developer wikis and individual wikis.

Enterprise wikis are best suited to organizations and corporations. The most innovative and organized companies already bring their staff together via wiki.

Enthusiast wikis provide a platform to organize information based on shared common interests. The .wiki TLD will empower a revolution for fandom, hobbyists, and academics. Wikipedia is the largest example of an enthusiast wiki, but Top Level Design hopes to foster a boom in specialty wikis.

Developer wikis are the natural place to host development and open source projects. It is visible and accessible, and it creates an intuitive space for any groups that develop through collaboration. Most developers are already connected and working with their colleagues via wiki, and so the new namespace will become a natural home base for them.

An individual wiki focuses closely on a person or family, with a .wiki domain name dedicated to an individual, one can participate in the creation process and invite others to do the same. The result will likely be quite different but complementary to a well-written Wikipedia biography.

Deals.xyz auction ends at $8,100 at Namejet but no one has to pay – #bullshit

An auction for the domain Deals.xyz that has been running for god knows how many months ended today and it ended at $8,100.

Conveniently no one has to pay for the domain because these were the rules of the auction for a New gTLD that is not yet delegated. You only pay in a few months IF AND ONLY if you want to pay for such a ugly domain name.

These 2 bidders started bidding from $1,200 and took it through the roof.

lead $8,100 2/14/2014 12:19 PM
phgauge000 $8,000 2/14/2014 12:19 PM

I really want to see this lead bidder pay. lol

OK. Some New gTLDs are good but don’t everybody go crazy here. .XYZ is one of the worst New gTLDs out of 1400.

This “sale” is NOT going into my New gTLD sales list.

Please no more bullshit auctions like that.

Over and out.

Shortest post ever.

Domain name liu.com sells for $155,688 at Namejet after 520 bids

The domain name liu.com just sold for $155,688 with 520 bids and 377 bidders in a Namejet public auction.

Yesterday the domain name liang.com sold for $45,000 with the 2 highest bidders tied at  $45k.

Liu.com and Liang.com were both FindYourDomain.com owned domain names. FindYourDomain.com has been auctioning its domain names at Namejet lately: Liao.com sells for $100,000, xiao.com for $67,566 and daum.com for $50,000 at Namejet

Domain name liang.com sells for $45,000 at Namejet with 2 bidders tied at $45k

The domain name liang.com just sold for $45,000 with 2 only bidders bidding in a Namejet public auction. What is incredible is that both bidders had a high bid of $45k with the one that bid first grabbing the domain name.

This is something I don’t see often. I see it for low end domain name tied maybe at the $69 initial bid but not for these high end domain auctions. I am guessing that the second bidder of maybe both bidder had bots setup with their proxies and didn’t pay much attention. Just $100 more and the second bidder would have won.

Liang.com was a FindYourDomain.com owned domain name. FindYourDomain.com has been auctioning its domain names at Namejet lately: Liao.com sells for $100,000, xiao.com for $67,566 and daum.com for $50,000 at Namejet

auctions.xyz sells for $310 while MyAuction.com is sold for $11,000: what was the best deal?

Today auctions.xyz sold at Namejet for $310 in what was an Advance Auction. The auction only had 5 bids from 4 bidders. The winning bidder won with a bid it made over a month ago: on December 4th 2013.

Namejet is running the .COLLEGE and .XYZ Premium Advance Auctions promoting the new gTLDs. In an advance auction, the highest bidder purchases an option to acquire the domain at the winning price, taking possession of the domain when it becomes available from the registry after the Sunrise period.

There are other .college and .xyz auctions running with the highest bids on deals.xyz with $610 and scholarships.college with $520. The worst marketing trick they have done is that these auctions last for months. Whoever thought of that has made a huge mistake. Nobody wants to be in a 3 or 5 month auction!!!

Also today the domain name MyAuction.com was sold for $11,000 in a public Namejet auction. The auction got 278 bids from 271 bidders and the winning bidder got a very good deal. The domain is part of the FindYourDomain.com domain name inventory that has also sold Liao.com for $100,000, xiao.com for $67,566 and daum.com for $50,000. All in Namejet auctions.

Which buyer do you think got the best deal?
