DomainFest NYC Online Auction Ends with $120,000 Total Sales

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Auction

Tags: , , , ,

The DomainFest New York auction ended yesterday with little fanfare and a paltry $120,289 in sales. The top sale went to FijiIslands.com for $58,830.

The 2011 Domain Fest event did not have a live auction event like in 2010, rather they chose to run an online-only auction. It is interesting to note these changes, but debatable if the format has anything to do with the results as there are a variety of factors in the success of an auction.  It will also be interesting to compare these results with the upcoming TRAFFIC auction where the promoters have announced that there will be no online bidding at the live-only auction event.

The results haven’t been “officially” released by Oversee but the Moniker/Snapnames site has posted the results. They have been copied below.

DomainFest NYC Auction Video on CNN

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Domain Auction

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

CNN has a video about the DomainFest NYC Auction on their CNN money site. The video features Ovesee.net CEO Jeff Kupietzky, Domain Broker David Parkinson and Domain Investor Kevin Wood and shows the final moment of the sale of NewYorkApartments.com and another domain.

[Ed. I can’t believe I had to type in the embed code – the embed feature for the video on the CNN site didn’t work for myself and 3(!) other people that tried it]

In an effort to collect more tax revenue, the state of New York has passed a law claiming E-commerce companies using affiliate marketers who reside in the State actually have a presence in the State and thus are subject to New York sales taxes. E-commerce companies are taking notice and have started sending termination notices to their affiliates. [via Domain Name Wire]
