This auction will feature a maximum of 30 (it was 20 last month) domain names, so it will be very exclusive. Heritage is working hard to bring domain names into the mainstream spotlight, and a venue like this certainly will help their efforts.
With that said, this is a last call for your best domain names.
Heritage Auctions is seeking one word .com domains that are short and powerful like: Blue.com, Fun.com, Free.com, Gold.com etc.
They are also seeking LL and LLL domain names.
Aron Meystedt, Director of the Intellectual Property Department, said:
“We need names with attractive reserve prices. We want to build excitement and we want the press to notice this event.
For this particular auction, because of the limited inventory and the exclusive location, we’re mainly seeking only names described above.”
“We’ve had great coverage in the past: Forbes, NY Times etc. We will really work our PR contacts again for this auction. We do have plans to advertise in the WSJ and other financial news.”
“Thank you for your support so far. I am VERY excited to hold an upscale auction at one of New York’s historic landmarks. We are working hard to bring visibility for domain names to those outside of our industry.”
“Email me ASAP with names that fit what we’re seeking – send along your BEST reserve prices you can as well. I hope to see you in NYC in 2 months!”
The Waldorf Astoria is located on Park Avenue, just a few blocks from Heritage’s NY office.
