Three Different Domain Auctions Will Be a Big Part of the Action at NamesCon Online Next Month

When NamesCon Online returns September 22-24, 2021 domain buyers and sellers will have multiple opportunities to ply their trade. Three distinctly different domain auctions are on the agenda for the three-day event. The first one will be a low or no reserve Rapid Fire Auction that will close the opening day of NamesCon Online Wednesday, September 22. It is scheduled to run from 19:00-20:00 UTC (3PM- 4PM US Eastern time). There will be no pre-bidding and no extended auction for this sale . That means you have to be in the (virtual) room to take part. If you have domains you would like to submit sale, you can do that here.

Day 2, Thursday, September 23, will close with the traditional live Premium Domain Auction conducted by RightOfTheDot.com (ROTD) President Monte Cahn and World Champion

auctioneer Wayne Wheat. They will be running this sale from a broadcast studio with a hand-picked selection of super-premium names going on the block. This high-stakes auction attracts the high-rollers of the domain world and is always an exciting  centerpiece at NamesCon events. The auction is slated to run from 19:00-20:00 UTC (3PM- 4PM US Eastern time). If you have a top tier domain you want to sell you can submit it for consideration here.

The third auction at NamesOnline will be a first - the major conference debut of a handshake domain auction. The Flamingo Handshake Auction, to be held on the closing day of the conference, Friday, September 24, will give Handshake aficionados an opportunity to beef up their decentralized portfolio with high-quality Handshake TLDs - especially emoji domains and one-word destinations. Submissions for the live Handshake auction will remain open until September 17.
