The MyID auction is starting Thursday, May 22, 2008 at 15:45 EST and runs for one week to Thursday, May 29, 2008 at 15:45 EST. MyID has announced the domains to be auctioned. Here is the list, with reserve range in parentheses, as well as some of my comments:


2-3 characters
1. 0B.ca ($501 – $1000) – This is my domain. It’s priced to sell. I’ve discussed it previously.
2. BUH.ca ($251 – $500)
3. CV.ca ($5001 – $15000) – A top of the line domain for *the* leading Canadian website about CVs and resumes. CV.cc sold for $3,000 last year. This is probably my favourite domain on auction.
4. KAU.ca ($251 – $500)
5. KUN.ca ($251 – $500) – Reserve seems high, unless the letters mean something I’m not aware of.
6. PZ.ca ($2501 – $5000) – An excellent reserve price – LL.ca don’t normally sell for less than 5 figures. PZ.be sold recently for $3,103 and PZ.eu sold for $3,136.
7. STD.ca ($2501 – $5000)
8. ZZ.ca ($5001 – $15000) – ZZ.org sold for $23,000 last year. The value of repeating two letter .ca domains is increasing quickly.

Business / Financial
1. AccountingJobs.ca ($501 – $1000) – Looks like a very good bargain to me.
2. AssuranceMaladie.ca ($1001 – $2500)
3. CV.ca ($5001 – $15000)
4. ForexSystemTrading.ca ($501 – $1000) – Can’t see the value in this one.
5. HomeFinancing.ca ($2501 – $5000) – HomeFinancing.net recently sold for $3,800.
6. HomeLoanRates.ca ($501 – $1000) – HomeLoanRates.com sold recently for $10,000.
7. iBorrow.ca ($501 – $1000)
8. Income.ca ($5001 – $15000) – Stellar domain. Perfect for a variety of financial websites. Income.org sold last year for $13,000 and .org doesn’t really even fit the term too well.
9. LoanDirect.ca & DirectLoan.ca ($2501 – $5000)
10. LoansCanada.ca ($2501 – $5000)
11. MontrealMortgages.ca ($1001 – $2500)
12. OffreEmploi.ca ($501 – $1000)
13. OntarioJob.ca ($1001 – $2500) – I think the singular kind of kills this one.
14. PentictonJobs.ca ($101 – $250)
15. Provider.ca ($5001 – $15000) – Good domain. If you sell your username, do you need to change it? Provider.org sold in 2006 for $2,458.

Fitness, and Dieting – Probably the least exciting category in this auction.
1. CardioStriptease.ca ($251 – $500)
2. eFit.ca ($2501 – $5000)
3. FitnessDiet.ca ($501 – $1000)
4. LactoseFree.ca ($501 – $1000) – LactoseFree.com just sold for $2,500.

French – I don’t really know enough to comment on the French language domains. The reserves seem very low, so there may well be some good bargains here. Several of them are owned by Robert, and he will have priced his reasonably.
1. AssuranceMaladie.ca ($1001 – $2500)
2. Eleve.ca ($501 – $1000)
3. Enceinte.ca ($501 – $1000)

5. Jetset.ca ($501 – $1000)
6. VancouverTravel.ca ($1001 – $2500)

I’m surprised at the number of sellers who are holding their domains privately. Fortunately, MyID has one of the most rigorous auction verification procedures I’ve seen, but if that were not the case, I’d feel uncomfortable with this. What other industry would you buy something for four or five figures, and not know who you are buying from?

Overall, I’d say that MyID has come up with a great selection of domain names for reasonable reserves. That’s a large part of the recipe for a successful auction.
