Heritage Auctions (HA), had it’s third domain name auction today and it sold 14 domain names for a total of $773,677.50.
Today’s auction featured 81 premium .com and New gTLD domain names such as Watermark.com, Bristol.com, Cute.com, Luxury.club, Digital.com, Baby.club.
Most domains didn’t meet the reserve but Digital.com sold for $373,750 and Cute.com sold for $230,000. All prices include the buyer’s premium.
The 14 sold domain names were:

(3 domains were removed from the original list before the auction for various reasons. Apparently a restraining order issued by the US District Court of Seattle has resulted in the cancellation of the anticipated auction of the Bitcoins.com domain name.)
It’s out of my understanding why buyers are willing to pay 30+ K extra when these domains could have been acquired through other brokers for far cheap.
Always thought provoking.
When a domain you want is on auction then you need to pay or you will loose it.
That is what auctions are all about.
some of these names were avaliable one point for little cheaper at brokers or newsletter, they should have gotten it then, but then who am I to judge or make assumptions or draw a line for others.
But it should be looked carefully that bidding at HA is no fun, because of buyer premium. gota be sucker to bid into it. Unless you really really want the name so bad
