Krista Gable

Founder

Domain Domme, LLC

I am a self-taught, serial entrepreneur. This is my first time attending NamesCon, but I have been a domain investor since 2018. I always pride myself on my creativity and intuition, which often allows me to grab domain names before others may see any value in them. I am an avowed futurist and many of my names are focused on near-future technologies. I believe in using new platforms and channels to market domains in non-traditional ways. I was a very early adopter of the Clubhouse app and am frequently online as a moderator of rooms covering a wide array of topics.

Mark started investing in domain names in the early 2000's because he believed a strong domain portfolio relevant to his companies would help increase their acquisition value. They did. His last company was sold to a NASDAQ listed media company that first approached him about buying a domain name. Mark's current pubtech company, DropCap, markets, monetizes and manages international publishing rights for more than 70 book publishers. Mark is passionate about domain investing and the community."

Domain Auction

You won’t want to miss our live Domain Auction on Thursday, January 30, from 5:30-9pm Central Time in Austin, Texas. A cornerstone of NamesCon, this is where you put your heart, nerve, and industry knowledge on the line for some seriously high stakes. Last year’s domain auction was the biggest in NamesCon history, with OL.COM selling for $900,000 on the floor. That evening, LEADS.COM sold for $435,000. It wasn’t just a night for high-dollar names: several four-letter .COMs sold for under $800 to eagle-eyed investors.

Everything you know about the domain industry comes into play when you bid for a name, as you test your nerves against your peers in the room as well as investors around the world on the internet.

Our friends at RightOfTheDot are bringing this live auction to the industry for the fifth year, this time on an updated platform provided by our partners at GoDaddyYou must get verified to bid on items over $2500, so start here—hit the button below to register as a bidder.
