    Who won domainnames.com it was on the floor, quite a bidding war, as was leads.com which is a great name also.

    The GTLD's never really showed up here, .com's ruled, some of the subpar stuff brought in some really good prices, and quite surprising.

    I think I saw ShaveReviews.com around $30K, and it still didn't hit reserve? Same with CPU.com like $610K in a auction, they shouldn't have such extreme reserves.

    Seemed many hit just right under their reserves then went completely cold.

    The new Tld's really didn't have a fair chance. There are many people holding good combinations, but they were rejected entrance. Quite frankly, the auction was rigged against them from the start.

    Your right, I didn't see much considering how much good inventory is still out there, even in reserved registry hands who probably were willing to sell to get some PR. A lot of 3L.net's, and weak 4L.com's, a lot of stuff that sells everyday on namejet for half, not sure who was bidding on that, but they didn't know their comps.

    I feel for the owner of insurance.us, namepros user who paid 5 figures for it, after auction fees, they are not going to be left with much, not the right venue for it.

    Solvent.com was a nice one at the end, saw a nice $100 bidding war back, and forth.

    The auction was extremely confusing, you would see like a $3000 starting bid, maybe from the previous online, and the auctioneer would be at like $100K, very tough to bid online, as it was choppy, and many times the screen, and what was going on in the floor didn't jive. It would be $3K on the floor, and the online button would be at $50K.

    They actually were running away with cpu.com up to $775K, before they walked it back to $610K, not sure where those extra $150K in bids came or went, but not much value in this auction to be honest, other than a random few.

    Not sure how the Oxley portfolio did, but doesn't like much hit the reserves.

    Broker wasn’t even close, I think I saw it flash at $550k I believe, given the owner has stated they turned down $1.1M, and commissions, no chance.

    Stop.com seems like a great 4L buy, and wait, it had very little bids, barely met min reserve, if I owned it, I wouldn’t be very happy at that price.

    UNO.com reached $400K, but I guess it didn’t reach it reserve.

    They set $75 as the maximum renewal fee for ngTLDs to be listed on the auction, but actually many great ngTLDs with potentially high selling prices have low $xxx renewal fees. So only average or below average quality ngTLDs are listed. $75 is too low, and I think low $xxx is more appropriate.

    It was fun to watch most of the live auction, my first time.

    The .com took most of the dollars, not surprisingly.

    To answer @Internet.Domains according to my notes drone got to $250k before sent to online continuation.

    All ngTLDs that made it to live auction sold and at prices typical of high wholesale or low retail for ngTLDs ($400 to $1200). The two that sold for most city.directory and surgical.center were the best in my opinion.

    VAB.net for $500 and equation.org for $400 struck me as low, as did BAB.org for $600.

    SmartDrugs.com strikes me as a great name for coming generation of medical internet of nanoscale things. It sold for a respectable price but I expect will sell for much more in a few years.

    Before sent online sh*t.com reached $150k. How it could be used in branding escapes me! Maybe portable toilets or septic systems but still would you really call your company that? Or maybe some comedian or celebrity might like it.

    Overall was impressed with how smoothly the auction ran, and Monte and auctioneer kept the tone fun.

    Used to be 25%, but if I was submitting ol.com for auction, no way I would pay 25%.

    If a domain has a reserve for a million dollars and someone bids $900k...that does NOT mean the domain could have sold for $900k...it’s just some idiot bidding it up close to the reserve.
    People on here talking about the price reached here and there...it’s just some idiots bidding it close to the reserve!!!

    Well stated many times there was people bidding right under the reserve, big numbers knowing they wouldn’t execute, much what happens on NameJet, hoping some outside jumps in, and takes the bait.

    Agreed, maybe they shouldn’t reveal the reserve prices.
