Namejet will auction 39 1-2 character .ORG domain names starting April 6 as part of Project 94. In partnership with eNom, NameJet is now offering this exclusive list of Premium .ORG domains for auction. For more information, see What is Project 94?. The starting bid for all domains is $69 and the 39 auctions close on different dates spanning from the 6th of April up until the 15th of April.
When you place a valid backorder on a Project 94 .ORG domain at NameJet, you will be required at that time to supply additional information that the Registry will use to qualify you as a valid Registrant. Please be aware the Registry will directly review and reject any backorder application that either does not meet the criteria or any that are found to have provided invalid, fraudulent or blank information in the required fields. NameJet does not make the decision on who is qualified and will pass the information provided to the Registry for approval. All bidders are required to answer this question before making a bid:
“How do you intend to use the .ORG domain(s)?”
Please read the “.ORG PIR Usage Statement” below so you know what you should reply.
Project 94 domains are expected to go over $5000 after auctions open, so it is recommended that any qualified participant becomes a Nemejet Verified Bidder previous to the beginning of the auction.
