Pompano Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 22, 2007
Yesterday, more than 300 individuals packed the ballroom at the Hyatt Grand Central in NYC to bid on some of the world's most premium domain names at the culmination of T.R.A.F.F.I.C NYC, the leading domain name industry conference. The auction was hosted by Moniker.com, the first and only provider of Domain Asset Management™, who also brokered the sales.
During intense live bidding, CreditCheck.com and its associated Web site FreeCreditCheck.com sold for U.S. $3 million combined while Seniors.com sold for $1.8 million.
Moniker's domain name auctions at previous T.R.A.F.F.I.C. events have already placed it as a leader on DN Journal's "Year-To-Date Global Contenders" chart. Moniker's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. auctions, not including yesterday's sales, were responsible for 32 of the top 100 sales worldwide in 2007 alone. The sale of CreditCheck.com and Seniors.com added two additional names to that list, making Moniker the current leader of million dollar domain transactions in 2007 among other registrars followed on the chart.
In total, the event netted over $10 million; final figures are currently being validated.
Monte Cahn,co-founder and CEO of Moniker.com, is available for immediate comment on yesterday's event. He can discuss the value of premium, generic domain names, the impact direct navigation is having on the online advertising and marketing community and the overall demand for domains in the marketplace.
