Probably more than one. I can see игры.рф ending up in that range as well.

The world of domaining starts shaking.

Assuming sale will conclude, it makes this the most expensive idn domain at this point, publicly at least (москва.com in Russian was sold for 216k)

Re: 7 fig .рф coming? бизнес.рф 260k usd current bid, week+ to go

I don't think business is the best keyword ever. Far from that. Just like sex.com, it is simply too broad! I would prefer a very high CPC keyword on a smaller niche over that.

On the other hand, москва.com yes. That one I think it is well worth the 200k.

North Carolina-based Dex One, the current owner of Santa Monica-based Business.com, said this week that it is shutting down Business.com, and realigning those operations, merging them into its current business. The shutdown comes three years after Dex One paid $345M for Business.com.

Re: 7 fig .рф coming? бизнес.рф 260k usd current bid, week+ to go

Not sure if its been mentioned before - but what the rules for last minute bids on these auctions ?? Do the auctions have very specific end times, or is it like Snap where a bid during the last few mins extend the auction ??

Re: 7 fig .рф coming? бизнес.рф 260k usd current bid, week+ to go

Is there an official site that shows the auctions in real time? Or are we depending on reports from participants in the auctions?

Depending on reports, some include print screens, some don't, some i can confirm more then others, i personally am not involved in the business .rf auction, i am indirectly in some others which i can get print screens if anyone needs.

Maybe RU-Center will publish the auction results once it is done, not sure they would though.

Auction will be extended after the set end time, until there is more than 5 minutes between 2 bids.

Sure looks now like there will be some freenzed bidding taking place at the end of the auctions. With that type of intensity and adrenaline, we should definetely see some auctions ending at prices beyond everyones expectations.

This really will make the ASCII crowd sit up and take notice - though they will probably counter attack IDNs with the usual armory of standard arguments.

You mean the usual, "we are all fuckheads and refuse to accept the obvious" argument?

At that kind of level I think we have the phenomenon Drew describes as a Clusterfuck! Dot RU would be winding down before year end.

Re: 7 fig .рф coming? бизнес.рф 260k usd current bid, week+ to go

Unfortunately we have bad things on the "closed" auctions like these: price is up high to the sky but domain will not be sold.
There are two opinions on this case - there may be angry people who don't want domain to be sold to another bidder (I agree that they are idiots - there is no understanding for this) or there are bots from Ru-Center.
Usual ending of this "closed" auctions is the open auction with the final high price from "closed" auction - I think there will be big chance of it in these cases too.
So you can prepare your big money to buy them a little later on open auction with the xxx.xxx start.
