Go Daddy .Ninja, .Reviews and .Futbol New gTLD premium auction sold 9 domains. The domains were sold by their registry which is Rightside. The auction included 25 domains and the highest bid was for e.ninja for $1,580. All domains had a $500 reserve that 16 didn’t get.
Here is the complete list of the 9 New gTLD domains that sold:
So it cost more to set up the auction than the revenue from it?
I must say I am getting kind of worried. I won the e.ninja domain name and the Rightside registry still has not contacted me. In my GoDaddy Panel it says “email seller for details” but I emailed them about a week ago and they still have not responded. Both my domain name and the other winners (example app.reviews) still show as “domain reserved in accordance with ICANN policy” on WHOIS lookups. I really wish Rightside would be better at communication. Do they not want to give the domains up…?
Collin I was watching this domain. Congrats on winning it. I can do a post about this if you want. It seems like an interesting story.
When I won a .info in one of the afilias auctions at Go Daddy I had the same problem. I waited for a long time before getting the domain.
And then it was locked at Go Daddy for 2 months.
Yeah, that’d be great. I called Rightside 2 days ago and they said they’d call me yesterday, but no call. :/
Since they’re a registry it’d be really nice if they could somehow just plop the domain in my CSCGlobal account so I could bypass sitting at GoDaddy for 60 days.
