ROTD Announces 1st Group of Premium Domains for Next Week's NamesCon Auction, Pre-Bidding Open Now

As we told you at the end of August, the NamesCon Online conference coming up next week (Wednesday, September 22 through Friday, September 24) will feature three separate domain auctions. The marquee event will be the traditional RightOfTheDot (ROTD) live Premium Domain Auction that is set to run Thursday, Sept. 23, starting at 3PM U.S. Eastern Daylight time). ROTD just released a list of the first group of premium domain names that will be up for sale and opened  pre-bidding on those names at ROTD.hibid.com

After receiving thousands of submissions for the auction, ROTD selected 300-400 premium names for pre-bidding, with new names being added daily. At the end of the pre-bidding period, 75-100 domains will be selected for the live auction September 23. That event will be broadcast live from a professional video streaming production studio in South Florida.  World Champion Auctioneer Wayne Wheat and RightOfTheDot President Monte Cahn will run the sale that will be live streamed on both the NamesCon website and the ROTD YouTube Channel. ROTD provided this sampling of some of the premium names that are available for bidding now:



To participate, bidders must first register at https://rotd.hibid.com. To place bids over $2,000, bidders must be verified so itís important not to wait until the last minute to register. Registration with NamesCon Online is not required but is strongly encouraged. You can register for the conference here

RightOfTheDot will also conduct an online extended auction starting on September 24th that will feature additional premium domains, along with those that did not meet reserves in the live auction. That will be a timed auction without an auctioneer. The first lots in the extended auction will begin closing on Thursday, October 7, 2021, at 1:30 PM EDT.
