Sedo’s .CO Auction for Startups Closing

4

The .CO Registry is running a special auction targeting start up companies as part of Global Entrepreneur Week. According to the auction announcement, “the domain names selected for the auction are all short, unique and memorable, with high branding potential for those seeking to launch or grow their business, brand, product or service online.”

The auctions begin closing at noon (eastern) today, and the reserve prices range from $500-999 to $10,000-$24,999. Out of the 164 domain names in the auction, 67 of them have bids, although most seem to be below reserve at the moment.

My 5 favorite domain names (based on the target startup audience):

  • Poll.CO (reserve: 1,000 – 4,999 USD)
  • Maps.CO (reserve: 1,000 – 4,999 USD)
  • Demo.CO (reserve: 500 – 999 USD)
  • Cupcake.CO (reserve: 1,000 – 4,999 USD)
  • Lesson.CO (reserve: 500 – 999 USD)

One piece of advice I would give is to have the auctions end later on in the afternoon. Many start up entrepreneurs are located on the west coast, and an auction ending at 9am on a Monday morning might not be the best time to get their attention. That said, I am sure Sedo has more experience running auctions than I have, so I am sure there is logic to choosing the end time.

What are your favorite names from the auction?
