It may also possibly have to do with certification requirement above 10,000.
So now 10 names have met reserve.
I believe Apartment.in was the highest at 9950
Anyone manage to get a list of the domains that sold?
Some of the sales were:
nmf.in - $451
pgl.in - $499
bdm.in - $499
bkr.in - 399 EUR
fmt.in - $451
cbd.in - $451
ntc.in - $451
mpt.in - $451
nsp.in - $451
Here are the results:
What do you think?
I think most domainers should be happy when they see good names sell for good money. Any domainers who think those were "cheap prices"should have been bidding. I am happy with the exposure and activity of .in domains on a public platform like Sedo.
A success in my opinion, given there was limited marketing.
Here are the domain names that were sold in the .IN auction at Sedo:
apartment.in $US 9950
big.in $US 4999
get.in $US 3800
blogs.in $US 2500
funny.in $US 2000
gas.in $US 1950
forsale.in $US 1500
cashmere.in $US 1450
vision.in $US 1200
pal.in EUR 1049
tom.in EUR 1049
citybreaks.in $US 800
cigarette.in $US 750
fest.in EUR 500
pgl.in $US 499
bdm.in $US 499
nmf.in $US 451
bkr.in EUR 399
fantastic.in $US 310
employed.in $US 250
belly.in GBP 161
printings.in $US 150
fellowship.in $US 119
In light of circumstances related to cancelled html.in/rail.in auctions few days before, very poor marketing and the lack of exposure among popular domain media, the auction is quite successful imho.
Good result for lll.in's, I think. Now we just need endusers that are willing to pay proper prices for these
Not auction, but I am told OnlineLottery.co.in sold recently on SEDO for $2750Euro
I think Sedo got it wrong, just over 20% of the carefully selected premium .in names sold.
Some nice sales with very few bidders is a reflection of the high reserves lack of marketing etc. Take away the top three sales and you have almost a disaster.
A great opportunity to really promote the Indian extension was mishandled. Would like to see another auction house give it a try sometime but most will be reluctant after this result.
Any idea how many names sold in the previous .IN auctions ?
If you are referring to Sedo.com then I believe therer has only been one which I paid for and sponsored myself. There was zero help from Sedo apart from releiving me of my funds.
I just about broke even despite low reserves and some very good names in both .co.in and .in. I do remember at the time .co.in was the more popular of the 2.
I believe the auction I sponsored was in May/June 2012 but cannot find any reference on the forum?
I found one link so far:
Love the comment "less than stellar .co.in" was I missing something?
There were plenty of links/comments on this forum but looks like they got lost.
Sold BodyBuilding.co.in direct for $3,000 - no auction but multiple offers of $2k+ from different entities/individuals the past year
If .in registry allowed dropcatching (officially) followed by a subsequent auction AND if the larger auction marketplaces (godaddy/namejet) allowed domainers to list .in/co.in domains, then buy prices would be publicized and investors would get used to seeing .in domains at auction. Out of sight . . out of mind.
Its an easy fix to a self-defeating policy.
Separate names with a comma.
