ROTD's Monte Cahn Previews Next Week's Live Domain Auction at NamesCon - Sale Could Top Last Year's $1.5 Million Mark

One of the main events at next week's 4th annual NamesCon conference at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas will be the return of the NameJet/RightOfTheDot (ROTD) Live Domain Auction that will get underway at 3PM (Pacific Time) one week from today - January 23, 2017

Last year's auction rang up nearly $1.5 million in sales so ROTD President Monte Cahn is understandably excited about putting another hand picked group of premium domains on the auction block. "We're working with NameJet again for pre-bidding and our extended auction," Cahn said, noting "NameJet will have our live auction system integrated within the NameJet customer accounts so if you have a NameJet account, you are already pre-registered for the live auction and able to bid online while the live auction is going on."

"If you want to participate as a bidder in the live or online auctions, you must have a NameJet account," Cahn emphasized. "Pre-bidding and NameJet sign up is here:  http://www.namejet.com/featuredauctions/liveauction."

"Again I have some of the best names in this year’s auction including many names that have never been for sale before," Cahn continued. "How about these packages with high bids:  [bar.com - bar.net - cafes.com - grill.com - place.com - pub.com - shelter.com] and [featured.com - featured.net - featured.org - plus Facebook page /featured] and [weddingparty.com - weddingparty.net - weddingparty.org - weddingparty.biz - weddingparty.info - weddingparty.tv] and [wineclub.com - wineclub.net - wineclubs.biz - wineclubs.co, @wineclub Twitter handle and including the Facebook wineclub page]."

"Also individual names like Single.com, OL.com, SW.com, stop.com, doe.com, leads.com, keyword.com, patty.com, strippers.com, cranberry.com, sportscars.com and lodges.com.  Some of the really good other TLDs featured are uf.tv, earrings.net, 89.tv, cellphone.net, sales.net, gold.club, business.broker, diamond.club, shoes.xyz, travel.agency, sweepstakes.org, e.hosting, ceo.asia, boob.tube and x.audio among others."

Cahn added, "There will be about 125 domains in the live auction that starts on January 23rd at 3 PM PST.  There will more great names in the extended auction that will run through February 9th to accommodate the Chinese New Year.  Again you must have a NameJet account to participate in both the live and online auctions. I am excited to also announce that RightOfTheDot has the exclusive rights to conduct the live and online auctions at NamesCon through 2019!"

The 2017 NamesCon conference itself will open Sunday, January 22 and continue through Wednesday, January 25. I will of course be there to cover it for you with daily photos and highlights in this column.
