    It may also possibly have to do with certification requirement above 10,000.

    Good result for lll.in's, I think. Now we just need endusers that are willing to pay proper prices for these :)

    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.

    Opportunity missed!

    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?

    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.
