Each domain in the auction will have a Silent Auction bid sheet for recording buyers bids. Rather than the bidder putting their name on the bid sheets, they will be provided a unique identifier code by the TRAFFIC Team.

At 7:00 PM PDT the Silent Auction will end. Any domains which reached reserve at the Silent Auction will be awarded to the highest bidder. Any domains not making reserve will be moved to an online auction with the starting bid being the highest Silent Auction bid amount. NO RESERVE domains will not be awarded to the highest bidder at the Silent Auction, but will instead move directly to the online auction using the max bid as the starting bid.

On Friday, May 30th at 1:00 PM PDT, the auction will close. Any domain that reached reserve will be sold. Domains not reaching reserve will be presented to show attendees for a special “in room” bidding. If the domain reaches reserve in the room, then it is sold. This includes NO RESERVE domains. If the domain does not reach reserve, then it is sent back to an online auction will the final close on Monday, June 2 at 4:00 PM PDT.

The inventory for the auction was selected by TRAFFIC, and includes a nice range of domains that are bound to resonate with some domain investors at the show and following the show. Please contact Above.com if you have questions on any of the domains in the auction or about the process. Above’s team can easily be found in the TRAFFIC Conference area at the Above.com booth.
