.Global domains had a great auction at ICANN 50 but that didn’t continue to the extended auction at Namejet. No .Global domains were sold at the namejet extended auction because no domain reached it’s reserve. Media.global got a $2,750 bid but didn’t sell. Other 4-figure bids included email.global for $1,007 and invest.global for $1,550.
Namejet.com teamed up with with .Global Registry and Right Of The Dot to hold an Online/Live auction during the ICANN London Conference for 82 premium .Global domain names. 35 out of the 82 domains were sold for a total value of $63,780. Highlight sales included Banking.Global that sold for $12,000, Sports.Global that sold for $8,000 and IDW.Global that got $5,200.
Namejet.com handled the pre-bidding on the domains before the live auction and all domains that didn’t meet reserve went to a 2-week extended auction at Namejet.
Here are the .Global extended auction results from yesterday:

Really? I find it incredible that no companies were willing to pay a premium to watch their dumb-ass gtld cause brand confusion, leak traffic to the .com and, ultimately, fail! Wow, who could have ever predicted this unforeseen turn of events?
