Domain Roundtable Extended Auction Brings in $81,774

by Adam Strong in Categories: Miscellaneous

The Domain Roundtable extended auction ended Tuesday night with little fanfare.   An additional 54 domain names sold with a total take of $81,774.   From our observations of the auction proceedings, all but one of the domain names that sold went for the proxy bid prices that were entered before the finale of the auction began.  Since it appeared that no one was bidding up the proxies, many of the NR or lower reserve names were won by the first proxy bids.   In fact 42 of the 54 domains sold went for under $1000.  Bidders that placed their proxy bids in early on this auction definitely had an advantage.    The top sale of the night was Larger.com at $24,800

The live portion of the Domain Roundtable Aftermarket.com auctioned banked $499,200. By our count, the combined total of the live and extended auction comes in at $580,974.  An additional $1550 was raised for the Internet Commerce Association (ICA) at the extended event as well, bringing the total amount raised from auctioning these donated domains to $16,350.

Some went for a fair price but most went too cheap.
That is very disappointing to see.

Possible reasons –

Not enough buyers.
Minor problem with the live auction site.
Maybe, a professional auctioner might have gotten more.
But, not if there are not enough buyers.

Hopefully, something will change with the next Roundtable,
if there is another Roundtable.

You only auction names if one of a number of criteria are met.. like

1) Its a distressed sale and it needs to be sold – hence no reserve
2) Its a highly sought name and there are more than two bidders
3) There’s a liquid market and there isn’t much difference between an auction outcome and a private sale = only that additional exposure might exist with a properly marketed auction.

As you can see, most domains don’t meet the above criteria unless you need to close out. Big problem with the Auction market though is that it DEPRESSES the private market by lowering buyers price expectations, people are seeing wholesale transfer prices while these domains are being marketed as “Public auctions”.
