    The problem that I expect to see here as with other auctions is that Sedo will want quality names at low or zero reserve, the next couple of weeks will determine if that is correct.

    Maybe start a thread on what names were refused and their reserves?

    They inform via email. Also there is a special icon shown next to the position of qualified domains which can be seen in Sedo account.

    Aids.co.in
    Smartphone(s).co.in

    Were rejected, a couple of crappy .in are pending. So looks like it is only .in?
    If so you will not see a real reflection of how the market is going only a Sedo reps perception of what sells or does not sell.

    Yep..real Indian companies using .co.in everyday. Premium .co.in are definitely worth to end users.

    Very cool event, but it is looking like .IN only. I also had some great .co.in rejected: Spirit, Lasik, Transfer.

    I submitted some dictionary word LLL .in that are all pending. We'll see. Either way I'm loving the attention to .IN, I'm happy to hang on.

    So far these names are approved for the auction:

    big.in
    color.in
    arrival.in
    musical.in
    icu.in
    cbd.in

    I'm expecting more names to be approved.

    Thanks Ace. Those are definitely all quality domains.

    What's the situation with the spelling of color/colour in India?

    yup, these are quality name selection from SEDO.

    Regarding the spelling, India follows British English, but the American version is somewhat accepted in India. There is a famous channel calls "Colors", so in a way color is also acceptable.



    I think these are reasonable reserves, especially cbd.in

    Had names pending for 10 days now, Sedo says 3-5 days!

    Some may remember that I actually had the first ever .in/ .co.in auction afew years ago. Cost quite a few dollars, subject to NDA.

    Zero advertising by Sedo,backup non existent,barely broke even and I went with low reserves.
    Hope the second .in Sedo auction is more successful!
