The full list includes over 3,900 domains. Some good, some bad.

The first Moniker auction in New York City saw many bids rejected, totaling in the millions. There is some speculation that domain name owners could put trying to inflate valuations by having buddies bid their names up with no intention of buying. Considering its a regular practice in other industries (e.g., selling cars on eBay) this is probably not a wildly unrealistic conjecture.

That being said, there are some great domain names up for auction. All of the big domain name buyers are watching and participating in the Moniker auctions. If you are interested in unloading some of your inventory, this is the place to do it. If you are looking to pick up some names, download Moniker’s list and take a look. If you have experience and success in the domain’s niche market its very possible you could earn the cost of the domain back in a year and then sell it for a profit.

  1. I’m looking forward to seeing how things go in this auction. I covered the Hollywood auction last year for the Miami Herald and there were a lot of good names passed up because the prices were set too high (or at least that was the opinion of many bidders there). I wrote about how things went last year in my tech blog Cache & Carey: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/cache_carey/

  2. I think the domain name videodownloads.com is the one everyone will go after. I would if I had the money (-:.
