Τhe first ever .club domain name auction in China concluded in partnership with EJEE’s Eachnic.com platform. The auction featured 25 2-character .club domains and the 1-character domain name c.club. 24 out of the 26 domains met the reserve and were sold.
PC.CLUB was sold for $9,750. Mike Berkens of Right of the Dot was the successful buyer of PC.club for $9,750 as he revealed it on his blog.
The domain names mh.club and c.club didn’t meet the reserve but were came close. C.club got a $40,000 bid. The reserve was $50,000.
This was .CLUB’s first auction in China, and the first auction held on EachNic’s fully bi-lingual platform. While the auction was held in China, it was very important for the registry that bidding was open and easy for anyone to participate in English or Chinese and the EachNic team, with support from Allegravita.
3 names (54% of those sold) exceeded their reserve, and 9 names (37.5% of those sold) exceeded their reserve by 10% or more. 5 names (21% 0f those sold) exceeded their reserve by 20% or more. The average price paid for the 24 names sold was $5,610.58.
Here are the auction results:

(The sales prices are correct except for a $250 bid that I missed. It was made on one of the domains that are listed for $5000 above. Not sure which one. The .Club registry did not released the final results.)
