BabyPhat.com Expires & Up for Auction

11

It looks like the BabyPhat.com domain name has expired and is currently up for auction at GoDaddy Auctions. The domain name had been associated with the once popular Baby Phat clothing and footwear brand.

If you visit BabyPhat.com right now, there's a message on the domain name indicating that it is currently in auction after it expired and was not renewed in December:

“Embarrassing” and “Inappropriate” Domain Name in Auction

0

Every now and again, various websites produce lists of "embarrassing" or "inappropriate" domain names that are used by companies. These domain names typically have an embarrassing, humorous, or off-color meaning when words are mashed together in a domain name format.

This morning, I was looking through a list of domain names coming up for auction on GoDaddy when a domain name stood out: molestationnursery.com. Why the heck would someone ever think this domain name was a good idea?! Making it even more interesting is that the domain name was created back in 1999 and has been renewed for all of these years! Further, why would anyone bid on a domain name like this at auction?!

I thought about it for a second and remembered seeing this domain name on a few lists of embarrassing and accidentally inappropriate domain names. According to Snopes.com, (more…) → Read More


2.XYZ + 350 Other .XYZ Domain Names on Auction

1

xyz-logoThe .XYZ Registry hopes to start off 2017 on a high note by auctioning 350 .XYZ domain names on Chengdu West. The domain names in this auction all have no reserve and will sell to the highest bidders. The auctions begin concluding today (January 4), and it will run through January 13. Bidders need to be registered with the China-based auction house in order to participate.

I believe the most valuable domain name in this auction is 2.XYZ. This auction ends in approximately one week from today. Several single number .XYZ domain names have previously sold, with the largest sale being 1.XYZ, which sold for $182,000 in March of 2016. Other single number sales include 9.XYZ, which sold for $176,000 in December of 2015, 6.XYZ, which sold for $125,000 in November of 2015, and 8.XYZ, which sold for $82,000 in September of 2015.

Commenting on the auction, Shayan Rostam, Global Director of Registry Operations at .XYZ, shared the following with me: (more…) → Read More

Sedo's final Great Domains auction of 2016 closed today, and the auction totaled about $175,000 in sales. There were 17 domain names that sold in this month's auction.

The largest sale of the month was Cave.com, which sold for $61,350. T4.com sold for $44,000, and Monochrome.com sold for 31000 EUR. Rama.com was another 5 figure sale, closing at $25,499.

The full list of sold domain names is below. Quite a few names had bidding action but didn't meet their reserve prices. Personal.com, Holding.com, Down.com, and Chest.com were examples of domain names that did not meet their reserve prices and did not sell at auction.

2869.com Auction: Above or Below Estibot?

6

It looks like a Network Solutions-affiliated registrar caught the 2869.com domain name after it expired and went through the deletion process. As a result, the auction is now live at NameJet and SnapNames.

As of right now, the high bid for this auction is $6,700, and there are 140 bidders participating (there may be some overlap between bidders who backordered the domain name at both venues). As I mentioned previously, Estibot values this domain name at $33,000.NameBio shows a wide range in sale prices for 4 number .com domain names. Throw in the fact that there isn't a number "4" in this domain name, and bidding could be even higher.

I am curious if you think bidding will be higher or lower than the Estibot valuation. Vote in the poll below:

2869.com Deletes and Will Likely Go To Auction

3

2869-com-domain

It looks like the valuable 2869.com domain name expired and was deleted. Depending on which drop catching service catches this domain name, it will likely go to auction sometime this afternoon.

I had a look at the pre-orders at NameJet, and there are currently 66 bids with a high bid of $6,700. Because it is a pending delete auction NameJet and Snapnames will team up and bidding can be done on either platform. DropCatch.com, Pheenix, and other drop catch auction services will also be vying for this domain name when it becomes available to snag. People interested in bidding on the domain name should backorder it at their favorite back order auction platform within the next couple of hours or so (at the time of publication).

The domain name appears to have been owned by (more…) → Read More
