Domain auctions can be fascinating to watch and predict – though they can be a little dangerous to get involved with.
Last night Rick Latona held a live auction with an adult theme. Going under the hammer were a very wide range of not only domain names, but also services (hosting, video editing etc.,) for people working in the adult internet industry. What made this auction a bit more interesting was the fact that it also included several ccTLD names.
As seems to happen all too often at domain auctions, some of the more interesting lots did not reach their reserve, so domains like xxx.com did not sell (it had a reserve described as “millions and millions”).
So what sold? In short a mixed bag. Some lots had no reserve, others had a “ballpark” reserve, while others had a very clear highball reserve.
stripclubs.com went for $101k
At the low end domains went for a few dollars a pop – in some cases as low as $8 / domain (in a lot of 25)
Based on the post-auction list, here are the results in lot order:
Pornczars.com $1 (?)
Lot of 25 Adult Domains $200
RibbedDildo.com, RibbedDildos.com, RibbedVibrator.com, & RibbedVibrators.com $75
NaughtyHusband.com & NaughtyHusbands.com $75
