They have tens of thousands submitted - chances of them getting into the live auction is extremely slim - also for silent

Re: TRAFFIC auction is on live now

I was told by Don Lyons that they were definitely taking IDNs.

OH you mean no IDNs were selected even though they were submitted and allowed in the auction?

Do you think it's a waste of our time to submit them? I spent so many hours filling out that spreadsheet.

don't bother - not enough of a return yet...
besides the people coming to TRAFFIC will start having to translate them etc

I submitted some IDNs as well. I only put in about 50 domains total between ASCII and IDN, and I had 9 ASCII selected. All are in the silent auction. They didn't have a single IDN in the whole auction, live or silent...

Re: TRAFFIC auction is on live now

After the last traffic auction , which if you remember, was a bit of a cock up- I was emailed by a moniker rep asking me to resubmit for this auction and to add additional "adult" names for another auction.

Diligently filled out the somewhat protracted submission form and submitted accordingly- went on hols for a few days returned and found they had lost the form I submitted, too late to resubmit- not destined to get my names in lights- unlesss of course one on my premium idn.nu sells for megabucks

Re: TRAFFIC auction is on live now

Thanks for the tip this was being broadcast...

I listened to the live broadcast (half of it)... agree sounded like a $1 microphone (sometimes I even missed what damn domain they were auctioning - but the advert breaks were clear!).

Trying to think what I learnt apart from some people are too greedy (how many million do they really think some of these names are worth!).

I was trying to think what business someone could do with some of them to get the amount invested back from doing business (and came up at a loss, on more than a few of them!)

Also interested to see that the buyers are all targeting USA only - a lot of the high $ sale ones are just not used in British English (yes - that obsure branch of English all the ex Commonwealth Countries / other English speakers in the world use).

What else did I learn... umm... single words generally are worth more (and country names are gold). Apart from this, just disappointed that no IDNs were accepted in the live auction (would have least been funny to see peoples reactions when others asked dumb things like - what the hell is that & other mis-informed remarks etc.).

So what did others think?

Cheers, Asiaplay

Re: TRAFFIC auction is on live now

creditcheck.com went for 3 mil, wonder how much creditcard.com or creditcards.com would be worth now.

My Japanese creditcard(s).com is doing $xx daily now. I guess it won't even reach 10 years rev in the traffic auction.

No, he bought it at one of his auctions.

OAN, some low numbers for a few decent names

I think creditcards(s).com would go for much less than creditcheck.com. Credit check is a very important service in the USA. Most everyone will want to check their credit report once per year (which is free if you know how to do it), some more frequently. Most people either do not know that it's free, or they don't understand how to do it. People have a lot of interest in maintaining and increasing their credit ratings, ironically checking your credit rating too frequently will lower your rating. Still, I can imagine that this site would be very popular with americans.

Folks are already bombarded with enough offers for credit cards that they don't need to go looking for them. Noone is really bombarding people with offers to do credit checks.
