Fashion .NYC domain auctions end tomorrow and bids are disappointing

Fashion .NYC premium domain auctions end tomorrow at Snapnames and bids so far are disappointing. Only 7 of the 24 domains have bids and these bids are just above the $500 opening bid.

Auctions.nyc and the City of New York are having their 2nd auction of premium .NYC domains this time 24 fashion related domain names like Fashion.nyc, Shop.nyc and Makeup.nyc are auctioned at Snapnames.com. (to coincide with the most famous fashion week events in the world)

The .NYC Fashion Auction ends tomorrow February 28, 2017.

The first auction of premium .NYC domains featured 20 domain names associated with real estate and was on Namejet. RealEstate.nyc was the top selling domain name getting a $21,300 winning bid. Apartments.nyc also got a 5-figure bid with $16,155. 19 out of 20 domains were sold for a total of $70,650.

Premium .nyc domains are released to auction in batches of similarly themed names. .NYC has more auctions lined up, each with a different theme.

Here is the list of the 24 fashion related .nyc domain names ending tomorrow and their bids so far:

  • Apparel.nyc
  • Boots.nyc ($525)
  • Boutique.nyc
  • Bras.nyc
  • Clothes.nyc
  • Couture.nyc
  • Deals.nyc ($525)
  • Designer.nyc ($525)
  • Fashion.nyc ($550)
  • Jewelry.nyc
  • Lingerie.nyc
  • Makeup.nyc
  • Models.nyc ($550)
  • Photographer.nyc
  • Rings.nyc
  • Runway.nyc
  • Salon.nyc
  • Shirts.nyc
  • Shoes.nyc
  • Shop.nyc ($575)
  • Sneakers.nyc
  • Stylist.nyc ($525)
  • Suits.nyc
  • Swimsuit.nyc

Of course most of the bidding happens within the last hour or the auction but results will probably not be close to the 1st auction.

The absence of any marketing whatsoever and the change of venue from Namejet to Snapnames were not helpful.

Only businesses, organizations and individuals with a physical address in the five boroughs were eligible to bid and register these premium .nyc domain names.

Opening bid is set at $500.

The 1st auction was not devoid of drama as the domain Home.nyc was accidentally released before the auction and later replaced with Homes.nyc.

  1. I hope mike berkens sent his cousin a fat Xmas bonus

  2. is Mike Mann letting all domain name appraisals to be posted at domainmarket.com ? they are all $99,888 or $94,888 for example UncleEurope .com $94,888 that name is terrible and its not the only one. just scroll down to Recently Appraised Domains and have a Laugh. LOL

  3. its a shame snapnames app dont work, keeps crashing….

    i will be out of the office and can only bid via app, but that work.

    another bidder lost.

    • Folks, SnapNames.com renders perfectly fine on smartphones is there is an issue with your installation of the APP.

      • SnapNames gave me problems first with their mobile site (even trying to view in desktop mode on mobile) and then their app gave me issues… I could view the auction, go into one of the domain pages but the box to submit an offer wouldn’t appear!

        What Steve K said above was true and this is not a bad installation of the app. There are issues with their app and mobile site. I would have bid on a couple of the lower price auctions – great names there today.
