Bido Set to Re-Launch on February 19

Bido.com, the social auction platform that grew in popularity for selling one domain per day at a starting bid of only $1 (with no reserve), is set to re-launch tomorrow, February 19, after it was temporarily taken down due to technical problems.

Bido was founded on the principal that the domain name industry needs change in order to succeed and is prepared to contribute to this change by revolutionizing the way auctions are conducted online. By building its auction system around a social platform, Bido has created a community where domain experts can build their brand, market their name, gain exposure, and receive recognition in the industry.

Furthermore, by offering only one domain each day Bido is able to benefit both buyers and sellers in unique ways. Buyers are benefited by not having to sort through thousands of domains each day to find one of value and being able to purchase a domain without worrying about reserve price. Sellers, on the other hand, are able to have their domain name featured exclusively on a large platform and have Bido market their domain for them – providing a detailed description of the domain and contacting partners, domainers, and end users who might be interested.

The auction system has been massively improved with the “push technology” that allows Bido to push all of the bidding prices, bidding history, high bidder status, and other information to the user without requiring the user to refresh the web page – allowing all the auction details to update in real time without requiring any action from the user. As for domain auctions, this technology is completely unique.

Here is a short list of the upcoming auctions:

They really need to get a clue when it comes to marketing. Spamming thousands of people on DNForum.com is not particularly bright: http://www.isquattedyour.eu/2009/02/18/bido-spam-dnforum-users/

Hi Michele, I would like to clarify – that was a paid advertisement that DNForum sold to Bido.

To start with that was not clear and it is a really ineffective and annoying way of “advertising”.
As far as I am concerned you and DNForum are spammers – you for doing it and them for allowing you to do so.

Those names are horrible, they have nothing better than those?

@Picky – that’s probably part of the reason they’ve resorted to spamming people to get them to talk about their “service”

Michele,
When signing up with DNF, you authorized DNF (and its clients) to send PMs to DNF users.
BIDO was authorized by DNF to send the PMs.
Probably, less than 1/2 of 1% were truly bothered by the PM.

I wasn’t. I considered it business noteworthy.

However, you have the nerve to complain on DNN and then LINK it to your own site. Self-promotion. Shame on you.

I wish BIDO well on the new roll-out.
Domainers need as many avenues as possible to move domains.
