Yesterday the new domain auction service Bido was launched. The site itself and interface are nice and simple, but the auction line up was a bit less than impressive. The first auction was for DiscountImages.com which even the experts weren’t in love with. The domain pulled in just under $1,000 netting Bido a very small profit. I thought the choice for their first auction was a mistake. It didnt have the “ewwww ahhhh” factor, and didnt create the buzz needed for a new auction platform like this.
Today they are set to auction off a par geo domain name, GolfIowa.com. Whats so special about this domain name? Not much. If you were looking for the most premium version of these keywords, you’d be looking at IowaGolf in my opinion. It has twice as many search results and almost all TLDs are taken. Currently GolfIowa.org is available.
