Go Daddy Offers Live Auction for Premium Domain Names

Have you ever wanted to have a domain name like Bob.com or TopBeaches.com? Well, now is your chance. Go Daddy Signature Auctions takes place November 6 – 8. The fast-paced, online event allows anyone to bid on a long list of premium domain names.

“We’ve said it many times – domain names are real estate of the 21st century,” said Bob Parsons, Founder & CEO of GoDaddy.com. “We wanted to give people a chance to secure some prime Internet space through a fast-paced, easy to use auction.”

Go Daddy has assembled an impressive lineup of domains from which bidders can choose. Bidding starts at the seller’s reserve price, so a single bid can take the domain name. The auction is open to the public. Qualifying to bid in the online auction is easy; just a few simple answers are required.

Once approved, users can go to www.GoDaddySignatureAuctions.com, where they can bid on more than 25 domain names. Domain names will be put up for auction one at a time. There is no time limit to each auction; so once the bidding stops, the auction ends. A moderator will be on hand in a live-chat setting to answer any questions potential bidders may have.

If you are unable to attend the auction for the domain name you would like, you can place a sealed proxy-bid, which automatically bids for you until your pre-set limit is reached. All winning transactions will be handled through Escrow.com. This allows security and peace of mind for both parties.

The list of domain names up for auction will be available October 24. For more information about the auctions, or listing your premium domain, please visit: www.GoDaddySignatureAuctions.com.
