Noted Los Angeles photographer Fernando Escovar is auctioning off what may be the world's largest domain name portfolio valued at $1.5 million. The portfolio contains 1500 English, Spanish, Tech, TV and geo-centric domain names including numerous Las Vegas names. The auction will go live on eBay on June 3, 2008. A portion of the auction's proceeds will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

According to Escovar, these domain names represent highly coveted Internet real estate. "In the game Monopoly, the person with the most properties usually wins. In this virtual age, whoever owns a list of highly valued and trafficked domain names owns the internet," Escovar explains. "In this portfolio, the virtual world closely reflects the real world," Escovar says, noting that there are approximately 80 towers under construction in Vegas right now. "The portfolio includes highly desirable names such as http://www.lasvegastowers.com and http://www.lasvegastower.com, Share-Holder.com, Comision.com,Vegasi.com, and ReportTV.com which should be of great interest to real estate investors and developers."

The online auction is targeting individuals or groups who will buy the portfolio in one lot.

Brokers are welcome, with commission terms to be discussed on an individual basis. The domain names will not be sold separately, as the portfolio will not be broken up. Escovar notes that because the portfolio contains a large quantity of Spanish domain names, he has been receiving some pre-sale interest from international buyers.
