“Recent domain name sales, such as Slots.com, Photo.com, and Dating.com, demonstrate that businesses of all sizes, from start-ups to mature corporations, are now embracing keyword-rich domain names as a core strategy to build their brands,” said Monte Cahn, founder of Moniker. “In fact, most of these recent premium domain names were acquired by businesses for the purpose of developing and increasing the value of their e-commerce sites.”

“These successes were enabled partly by the enhanced SnapNames and Moniker platform,” said Craig Snyder, General Manager of the SnapNames and Moniker. “We’re able to reach global buyers and sellers in a fast, safe and easy way.”

Pre-bids may be submitted on any domain listed in the auction until Aug 18, 11:00 am US Eastern time. The highest bid for each domain will then become the starting bid in the live auction.
