TRAFFIC Domain Auction Review & Analysis

October 15th, 2011 by Admin in Domain Sales & Auctions

The TRAFFIC Domain Auction and Conference
For years TRAFFIC has consistently showcased the best domains under live auction. Many exciting transactions have happened and this is where Moniker really got it’s feet wet in the major auction game. This year is a little different because bidding is only open to attendees (In previous years online bidders were able to participate) and Moniker is not running the auction. This was an effort to spice the overall event up and make it that much more exclusive. Based on the names they are offering and some of the reserves, if even a small number of sales go through, it will have met it’s goal. The full list of names is below.

What We Like, What We Don’t
There are a bunch of very strong names in this one so we looked at both the reserves AND the name to determine what was most attractive.
Some of our favorites:
MexicoCity.com Reserve under $800,000 — High for a non-destination/Vaction city
Prague.com Reserve is too high for this I think (Reserve under $800,000) Just not enough travel value yet…good hold.
SailBoats.com & MotorBoats.com Reserve $1.5MM category killers
Cheese.com Reserve $1MM – Love it at Any Price!!!
Dubai.com Reserve under $4MM — Little too high I think but the city is an active marketer so….
AutomaticPayments.com No Reserve so very nice if it can be gotten for a steal.
BodySprays.com No Reserve My Nephews love this stuff and strong marketing support. The Plural isn’t as nice but still decent.
VinylAlbums.com No Reserve The Albums is redundant for us old-timers but nice niche and good market if can be gotten cheap.

The Stinkers
ALL the Baloney TLDs .co, .mobi and even most of the .tv domains. Do not belong in a premier auction platform. I will give the .xxx a pass because there was a stated focus on these.
DomainSuccess.com/GrandNames.com/EarthChamps.com Lame Names. Good luck on a $10K reserve.
Most of the “i” domains Not much power with brandables.
