PORTLAND, OR (January 18, 2008) – SnapNames®, an Oversee.net company, has released its catalog of premium domain names for the upcoming SnapNames Live™ Auction. This will be the organization’s first live auction, to be held at DOMAINfest Global™, the premier domain name industry conference and marketplace running from January 21-23, 2008 at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood, California.
The catalog can be viewed at www.snapnameslive.com.
Live auction inventory was narrowed from more than 110,000 submissions to the 400 premium names likely to appeal most to the investors, publishers, marketers and companies attending the event.
Highly desirable domains on the block include:
The hammer price on many names is anticipated to exceed the six figure mark, with some potentially reaching seven figures.
During the SnapNames Live auctions, simultaneous online bidding will extend participation to bidders beyond the auction floor, including real-time access to SnapNames’ world-wide base of more than 150,000 qualified buyers. This broad exposure to qualified and motivated buyers helps ensure maximum visibility and bidding contention for seller inventory.
