“We were the first to offer an organized aftermarket for domain names,” said Sudhir Bhagwan, SnapNames CEO. “Our systems are time and volume tested, providing rapid sale and delivery in a fully transparent auction format. Our quality of service is the best in the industry. As a result, we remain a primary destination site for top buyers.”

This broad exposure to qualified and motivated buyers helps ensure maximum visibility and bidding contention for seller inventory. Rather than a single marathon event, two shorter auctions will be held at DOMAINfest. This will help ensure that domains in all positions in the catalog receive the attention they deserve.
