NamesCon brings together the world's domain industry every year at our flagship event in Las Vegas. This year, we've had the opportunity for the first time to bring NamesCon to the other side of the globe with NamesCon India.
Unlike the new gTLD domain names we’ve been featuring this week, all of the .COM and .NET domains in Sedo’s GreatDomains Auction + The Future Edition were submitted by the domain community at large. Whether you’re selling, bidding or just watching the action unfold, we’ve got the inside scoop on the original TLDs, still constantly at the top of the playing field.
Started in 2012, Radix is the world’s 3rd largest domain portfolio registry, and Asia’s largest gTLD applicant to ICANN. Radix is part of the Directi Group which is currently valued at $1.4 billion. Radix has been an active participant in ICANN’s process to expand the internet naming system, and has obtained the rights to operate over 9 new gTLDs (generic Top Level Domains) including .ONLINE, .STORE, .TECH, .WEBSITE, .SPACE, .PRESS, .SITE, .HOST, and .FUN.
.GLOBAL is one of our registry partners for the GreatDomains Auction+ The Future Edition, currently underway over at Sedo! New gTLDs were not accepted in the public submission window for this auction so that we could bring you ultra-premium names direct from the registries themselves.
.CLUB is the most used new top-level domain and the perfect web address for a membership or subscription based startup, or anyone sharing or expressing their passion. Priced right for hosting and email bundles, .CLUB is a profitable choice for registrars and resellers. If a business is building a community of members around a product or service, there’s no better domain than .CLUB.
DNA Sequencing Inc owns most of the top Exact Match Domains in this niche such as DNAsequencing.com, DNAsequence.com, DNAmap.com, DNAcode.com, HumanGenome.com, DNAtechnology.com etc. These domains get type-in traffic, are meaningful, pass the radio test and have large search volumes and cost per click. A company which wants to dominate the $ 20 Billion per year market in online space can use this portfolio and leave the competition behind.
With Sedo's GreatDomains Auction+ well underway as we lead up to the Grand Finale at NamesCon India in Mumbai next Friday, we thought we'd share some tricks and tips for successful bidding. Auctions are both exciting and nerve-wracking – when you're bidding on a name you really want, how can you improve your chances of landing it?
Well, a busy year has come to a close; topped off with another great event. The NamesCon team is already gearing up for 2018! Thank you to everyone who took part in our survey – first on the list is a thorough review of all of the feedback we’ve received from attendees, speakers, moderators and staff – yourselves included!
