RightOfTheDot Ready to Rock the Domain Sales House with Live Online Auction Thursday

Last month I told you about a major new live online domain auction that RightOfTheDot.com Founder Monte Cahn was putting together with World Champion Auctioneer Wayne Wheat. Well, the time for the big event that will originate from a studio in College Station, Texas is now here. 

The first names in a rich catalog of top tier domains will start hitting the block at 12 Noon U.S. Central Time Thursday, February 25 (1pm in the Eastern U.S. and 10am in the Pacific Time Zone). Over 600 domains have been submitted for the sale but the live event will be limited to the cream of the crop, approximately 100 domains hand picked by Monte (the guy who basically invented live domain auctions almost 20 years ago) and Wayne (who is the most experienced and talented domain auctioneer in the world). Names not selected for the live show will all be available in a companion online auction that will continue to March 4

will run the February 25th auction.

Among the domains that have been submitted are Publishing.com, Names.com, Bird.com, Fish.com, Greece.com, Restaurants.com and Quarantine.com, to name just a few. You can check out the entire catalog here, along with special auction notes and reserve guidance. There may still be a few last-minute additions as well. 


Bidders are urged to register early to avoid any delay in getting verified for bids over $2000 and missing out on the first lots to be offered. Bidders wishing to bid over $2000 will need to provide a scanned photo ID like a State-issued Driver's License.

In addition to being streamed from the rotd.hibid.com website, ROTD will also be streaming via YouTube Live at this link: https://youtu.be/pDd2xnMheqI
