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.
