The list of domains in the upcoming NamesCon Europe auction is one of the best I’ve ever seen. There are some exceptional short .COMs listed like XU.com, KOL.com and Drill.com, each of these would steal the show if the others weren’t around.
That’s what makes this one of the more challenging auctions to pinpoint which domain is going to break through it’s reserve price and take the cake for the top sale.
While I think domains like Drill.com, FCC.com and KOL.com could easily battle for second or third place, I personally think that XU.com is going to take the cake as the highest sale. Earlier this year, OL.com sold for $900,000 in the NamesCon Vegas live domain auction so XU.com selling in the high-six or even seven-figure range is certainly on the table.
Of course, with a huge name like XU.com, you never know exactly where the reserve is set, so it could always end up as the name with the highest bids, but not the name with the highest bids that sold.
I will be in Portugal watching the auction live, and full disclosure, I do have domains in this auction as well. While I like my own names, I can tell you there’s no chance any of them are going to be the top sale so this article isn’t going to end up promoting one of my names, unless one of you has lost your mind!
Okay – so you’ve heard my prediction, now I want to hear from you. What domain do you think will end up as the top-selling in the NamesCon Europe live domain auction next week? I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
