Canadian Domain Auction Update

May 4, 2008 · Print This Article

As previously reported, Pool has started a one premium domain at a time auction format. The first domain it auctioned was cafe.ca. Unfortunately, this domain did not sell, as it did not meet the reserve price. The next domain they are auctioning is slots.ca, which is also an extremely good domain. If you are interested in bidding on this domain, simply backorder the domain with Pool before noon EST on May 7, 2008.

The MyID auction has announced a new bonus for both its purchasers and its sellers. For every $10 spent by purchasers or received by sellers, you receive an “at-cost credit.” What’s an at-cost credit? Basically, it allows you to register, transfer or renew a domain at the cost that MyID pays CIRA – currently, $8.50. So, for instance, if you buy or sell a domain for $1,000, you would get 100 domain renewals for only $850. This is a substantial savings – representing 15% to 30% off what the cheapest registrars charge. For domainers with large portfolios, this is an extremely good deal – and hopefully will payoff in higher bids across the board. Start saving your pennies for the auction! The list of domains to be auctioned will be published by May 8, 2008.
