    It is interesting to see that quite a few nTLDs are part of the auction at NamesCon coming up next month in Las Vegas. At last count among 318 names up for auction which are now live for pre-bidding on SnapNames about 40% were nTLDs.

    Wine.CLUB hits a record 140K highest ever in nTLD sales and CarAuctions.com sells for 90K - two notables so far

    The last Live Auction item ePeso.com - was a steal IMO, sold at $2500

    All done now wait for Pundits to analyze the stats and comment. My takeaway, overall a successful live domain auction in terms of sales versus list


    1. Reserves too high on some premium dot COMs?
    2. Highest sale during Live Auction Wine.CLUB at 140K
    3. Terrible show by most nTLDs selling below $500 even (xyz, global , vegas, nyc)
    4. CLUB the nTLD winner by miles(Wine, Birthday, Tequila, Weed, Fight, Fans sold, no takers for Advertising and Chess given reserves)
    5. COM still king - Notable high sale CarAuction.com at 90K

    But why should nTLD domains sell well? They dont have any serious fundamentals backing them up. Donny even said on NP they dont really get traffic!

    Most of the nTLD sales are vanity sales/outlier end users who want to use them instead of convetional extensions.

    For me its ccTLDs over nTLDs any day!!!

    LLL - OMG, I wish I had that Whatsapp emoticon here :eek:

    ccTLD vs nTLD ? I feel like going back in time, simple Google treats nTLD like any gTLD, Where as those majority ccTLDs who are not in the gccTLD list get local search treatment by Google, Worse even for dot IN with a history of SPAM usage in mid-late 2000 and poor Governance issues - way way back in the back burner.
