If Andrei of DomainingTips.com decides he wants to get out of domaining and into PR I think he could easily find a job. Pretty much every domain blog has listed the fact that he and DomainTips have teamed up with Snapnames/Moniker to auction off a fine list of keyword/generic domains. It’s just not official until it’s posted here. Before I go into the details of the auction I want to point out why he’s received so much coverage. He sent out a personal email to each person and asked nicely. No form letters, just a nice email asking if I could get the word out. See how easy it is. Now my 2 cents on the auction. First of all, I wanted to remind everyone that the auction ends Tuesday and it really is worth taking a look at some of the names. The names have already drawn some nice bids with Necklace.net at $9645 (was at recent TRAFFIC auction with a reserve of $50K) ……Dullard.com at $7750…..armchair.net $7240……apartamentos.mx $4940 (HUGE bargain at this price) …..and casserole.net at $3595. Most bidders like to wait until the last moment so I expect to see a lot of action on Tuesday morning.
I think people are underestimating the value of the spanish .mx extensions. From camas (beds) to bufandas (scarves) there are some great names. People in Mexico prefer use the .mx for local web traffic and yes there are a lot more Mexicans on the internet than you realize. Here are a few of the other names I like
HeatedBoots.com (electric heated boots just hit market this year from Columbia)
