XYZ is proud to announce that we have partnered with West.cn for a second time to host an exclusive .xyz premium name auction between March 16 – March 31. Over 150 .xyz domains will be auctioned off at no reserve. Many of these domains have never been registered before, since they were originally variably priced premium names, which renewed for a premium fee. However, we have removed these domains from our variably priced premium list so that the winners of these domains will only be responsible for standard renewal fees!
Among the domains being offered, the auction will feature six 2-number, seven 2-letter, ten 3-number, twelve 3-letter, twelve 4-number, eight 4-letter, and five repeating-characters (i.e. xxxxx.xyz & bbb.xyz) – all at no reserve. That means that these domains will sell to the highest bidder, no matter that final price is!
The final domain auction will be for the highly-coveted 1.xyz. With a very reasonable price set, we expect this domain to sell for significantly more than the reserve. Guidelines, rules, and a complete list of domains offered for auction each day can be found here.
The exclusive March auction with West.cn follows our extremely successful auction with them in December 2015. At that time, 9.xyz sold for 1,135,000 RMB, making it one of the highest reported sales in history of a new domain name. You can see a complete list of domains sold in that auction below. Because these domains were sold in auction, the buyers only pay our standard renewal rate for these domains!
XYZ continues to focus on China as one of its most important markets, and we expect adoption to skyrocket after we receive accreditation later this year. As the popularity of .xyz continues to grow, we expect the great domains we’ve included in the West.cn auction to receive a lot of attention from domain investors all over the world.
We are also considering direct sales of variably priced domains. Packages begin at $500,000 USD. Serious offers may be submitted to [email protected].
Happy bidding and good luck!
