13 .xxx premium (one-word) domains to be auctioned at upcoming TRAFFIC event

Rick Schwarts just announced that 13 premium  .xxx names will be auctioned off at his upcoming Traffic event/auction. XXX domains are still in the sunrise period so I imagine the prices these names fetch will have a big impact on future sales.

Singles.xxx
Personals.xxx
Orgy.xxx
Stars.xxx
Blondes.xxx
Party.xxx
Local.xxx
Juicy.xxx
Virtual.xxx
Hotties.xxx
Chatroom.xxx
Juicy.xxx

These names are as good as it gets for the .xxx extension.

The event will take place on October 18th in Ft. Lauderdale.

StepOut.com sells for 30K to a group dating website

Domain Asset Holding (Mike Mann) sold the domain StepOut.com to an online ‘group dating’ website through Sedo. The group dating website – called Ignighter -¬† offers the ability for people to meet potential dates in groups; they explain it here. The homepage reminds me of those late-night flirt websites like lavalife :)

Much success to them – that’s an awesome name for a pretty good price in my opinion.

Expired domain auctions on Godaddy

Not sure how many of you are aware, but when you are bidding on an expired domain in GoDaddy Auctions, even if you are the winning bidder (aka winner of the auction), you are still not guaranteed the domain name. The reason for this is that the registrant still has about 2 weeks to claim that domain.

The reason GoDaddy does this – kicks off a 7-10 day auction before being sure the user won’t renew – is pretty obvious. If nobody bids on the domain,¬† they won’t renew it; if the domain gets bids, they renew it (for the standard nothing-fee) & then turn it over to the winner of the auction for whatever price the winning bid was. It’s a win/win for them.

To be fair, they do clearly state this in their terms. It’s just a little frustrating after placing a bunch of bids and finally winning the auction to get this email:

 

Wanted to feedback from anyone who uses godaddy auctions frequently, how often does this happen to you?
