公司.com...how much will it go for?

Snap poll here guys.

Auction is only on for a couple of days - so cast your vote!

We are witnessing history in the making here - this will be a massive boost for IDN's.

I predict it will even surpass the mighty 東京.net sale.

The IDN giant is about to awaken...

Well, it should do at least that. Giant sold one for $12K, I believe and I have had several 5 figure sales. There have also been a lot of higher German IDN sales, and a lot that haven't even got on the Radar Screen.

Anyone talking less than $10K, just doesn't understand the market. The $15K to $20K guys might be right but there is every likelihood that it will fetch far more than that. If I had the right to bid on this I would be asking a good 4 figure sum just for the seat at the table.

Be cool if it could top the städtereisen.de sale. Difficult though as it's a likely a reseller auction as opposed to enduser sale.

If I look at how the current (after)market stands, $5k-$10k isn't that farfetched, I even heard of people giving away names for promotional means so who know's .

I just think of the fact that these bidders are domainers (we know) and who already have plenty to show for, I am not sure I would spend a considerable amount on 1 name in the aftermarket when 10 smaller but much cheaper names can amount to the same profit eventually.

(hmmm it's already at a $1000...can I retract my statements?)

Logically it should fetch far far more.

By any sensible measure China is a much bigger market than Germany.

It is a dot com rather than a ccTLD.

And it is a much higher quality name.

Forget logical reasoning in domaining markets though, unless it based purely on current traffic figures, fabricated or otherwise.

Yeah, it's a top name. Let's see. Maybe it'll get up there.

The fact that this domain already has instant recognition amongst non-Chinese who struggle to differentiate between Simplified and Hirigana, already speaks volumes. If this goes for under $10K the buyer should be done for Grand Larson!

Bravo, and on a side note the seats at the table did just up to 4 figures...

That got me wondering too.

Phew! That was close!

bnb001, ChinaStar, lzlzlz are the winners.

The rest of you, don't forget to send them $5 by paypal.

It's good to see you come out alive and winning. Your opponent not just wants to beat you, he really wants to kick you.

No wonder your signature was changed to "My brain hurts" after you met kenne at Snapname auction.

公司.com is one of the very few best names in Chinese, it's a better name than 商业 (business or commerce).

Drewbert won the name...but 3 of us ended up splitting ownership in an unplanned 11th hour deal. Bidding got moving quicker than expected, and rumours of a "ringer" waiting in the wings was suspected. The auction went into 3 or 4 overtimes with last minute bids. Nothing was preplanned, just kind of happened to hedge bets and have the ability to stay in the game.
Congrats also to Gammascalper who orchestrated the years swiftest deal.

Drew has reminded me it wasn't an 11th hour deal...., but an 11th hour, 59 minute deal. That's sure the truth!
