Single Character .Biz Auction Pulls In Over $360,000 at Sedo

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Sales

Sedo just wrapped up their single character .biz auction today, pulling in over $360,000 on 31 domains, or an average of roughly $11,000 per domain.  Andrew at DNW pointed out that E.biz was the top contender with over 20 bids coming in and a whopping $66,001 price tag.   Several domains were not included in the auction including 0.biz, 3.biz, i.biz, o.biz and q.biz .  All of the results are unofficial as Sedo has yet to close the deals, but links to the auctions can be found below.

It’s safe to assume that most of the bidding was driven by speculation.  With the recent announcement by Overstock.com to acquire the O.biz domain, a certain credibility was given to these domains.  I’m sure other registries will take note of this play.  Often all it takes is one company/group to adopt something and a trend in speculation can be spiked.  The .Biz extention hasn’t likely seen this much interest since it’s launch.

All the proof you need on just how badly .biz sucks.

I think these are positive developments for .biz and the first of more to come. .BIZ is excellent for business applications and the term itself “BIZ” is very familiar to those who work in the world of finance and general business.

Many people are not aware that .biz is the tenth leading extension globally with well over 2 millions .biz domains registered.

I wish Sedo would fix the links on the far left of their home page under “domain catalog.” The links never want to open. Arts, Business, Computers, Education, etc. all don’t work. Is it just me?
