In our current Cover Story about new mass domain development services I mentioned that two more companies, both with ties to well-known figures in the domain industry, were 

about to enter the competition. One of those,, went public today.  The other will likely make its debut at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Silicon Valley conference next month. is a partnership between DN Media and Telepathy Inc.. Telepathy is run by veteran domainer Nat Cohen. DN Media co-founder Bogdan Nastea said, "We are thrilled to be partnered with Nat Cohen of Telepathy on this project.

Today is the last day to enter's Domain Madness contest that is offering a $1,000 prize to the winner. Contestants try to estimate the final sales tally from an online domain auction will will start tomorrow and end March 31 at 2:15pm U.S. Central time. The person who comes closest gets the money. To take part you have to get you free entry in no later than 11:59pm U.S. Central time tonight.

We have a few other domain deadline dates you should be aware of. The latest premium online auction ends tomorrow (March 26) at 1pm U.S. Eastern Time. The names up for bid include, and to name just a few.

Friday (March 27) is the deadline to submit names for's live auction at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Silicon Valley conference coming up April 27-30

Meanwhile the early bird registration deadline for next month's GeoDomain Expo in San Diego has been extended to Monday (March 30). If you sign up before the deadline you can register for $595. The price jumps to $695 Tuesday. 

By the way, I will be at both the GeoDomain Expo and T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Silicon Valley. I will have a special preview of both events in our next monthly newsletter that will be emailed to opt in subscribers before the end of the month. 

One other note today, the folks at have announced a major change for their auction platform. In the past Bido accepted only .com domains, but now they have thrown the gates opens to all extensions. This move comes on the heels of a recent decision to allow sellers to set reserve prices on their domains for a small fee that is refunded if the domain sells. The site previously ran no reserve auctions only. 

Also, don't forget the big charity auction coming up at Bido Wednesday, April 1 at 1pm U.S. Eastern Time. A large portfolio of animal related domain names, currently numbering more than 4 dozen domains and still growing, will be sold with all proceeds going to Arizona's Hacienda de los Milagros (House of Miracles) animal shelter. You can read more about that cause in our Lowdown post Monday.
