Thought Convergence Selling Off Their Top Tier .Com Domains in NameJet/SnapNames Auctions

Over 800 domains from one of the industry's best portfolios of premium domain names are going up for sale in a series of auctions on Newfold Digital's  NameJet and SnapNames platforms. The landmark sale is the result of a decision by Thought Convergence co-founders Ammar Kubba and Kevin Vo to liquidate the remaining assets of their holding company and distribute the proceeds to their shareholders. 

The term "premium" tends to get over-used when it comes to domains, but in this case the term is a perfect fit for the collection that includes Beer.com (part of a fabulous lot of 27 domains that includes "beer" in other popular languages around the world, including Cervezas.com (Spanish), Biere.com (French), Beoir.com (Irish), and many more). Then there is  AKA.com, NonStop.com, Aftermarket.com, Trainer.com, Illustrate.comHelpLine.com and hundreds more. Most of the auction lots are being offered with a low or no reserve.

You can place pre-release backorders on the various domains before their specified deadlines (those are staggered across three nights beginning  Friday night, December 3).  The live auctions will follow once the backorder period closes. You can view the domains on either NameJet or SnapNames using the following links:  

Beer Portfiolio: NameJet  ~  SnapNames 

Individual Domains: NameJet   ~  SnapNames

The liquidation of the Thought Convergence portfolio does not mean that veteran domain investor/entrepreneur Ammar Kubba is exiting the domain space. Far from it. Earlier today, Ammar told DomainInvesting.com's Elliot Silver, "My company, afterTHOUGHT, Inc., still owns thousands of domain names, and we continue to invest and acquire on a regular basis. Without a doubt, Iím incredibly bullish on domain names and other emerging digital asset classes (cryptocurrencies, NFTís, etc.)."
