Here's the The Lowdown from DN Journal,
updated daily
to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry. 

The Lowdown is compiled by DN Journal Editor & Publisher Ron Jackson.

eNom's Auction of 39 One and Two Character .ORG Domains Including 1.org Opens Sunday + Today is Last Day for Discounted T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas Tickets

 The Public Interest Registry's Project 94 auction of 94 previously unreleased one and two character .ORG domains continues this month with eNom's portion of the sale opening Sunday, April 7. It is scheduled to run for 12 days, concluding April 19

PIR chose eNom and Go Daddy to handle the auctions with proceeds earmarked for "programs that empower non-commercial organizations to have an effective online presence – one that is essential to helping organizations achieve their core missions". Go Daddy was assigned 42 domains to sell in auctions that were to run March 18-28, but they decided to extend the sale with a one-week silent auction that is still underway. 

eNom Executive VP Taryn Naidu

eNom has partnered with aftermarket domain name service, NameJet, to handle the sale of the 39 domains PIR assigned to them. eNom Executive Vice President Taryn Naidu noted, "The .ORG brand is one of credibility and community, and as a longtime partner of PIR, we’re thrilled to offer these premium .ORG names...access to these new domains allows more organizations to elevate their brands by making themselves more visible online and credible to consumers who know they can trust the .ORG brand.”

To participate in the NameJet auctions you must be validated by the registry and registered with NameJet before April 7. You can do that and learn more about the auctions and qualifications here. A complete list of the domains to be auctioned can be found here

One other note today - now that we have hit April 1 we can start talking about T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas being next month. Since the big event at the Bellagio Hotel doesn't begin until May 29 you still have eight weeks to make plans - but you don't have time to save $200 on your admission ticket unless you register today. The price rises from $1595 to $1795 effective tomorrow.

This will be the first Las Vegas show T.R.A.F.F.I.C. co-counders Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu have staged since 2008 (Rick Latona 

staged one as a T.R.A.F.F.I.C. licensee in 2010), so there is a lot of anticipation surrounding this year's event that will run May 29 - June 1 in its first visit to he beautiful Bellagio (home of the world famous dancing fountains).
