The Epik.com Developer’s Conference Auction was held today, and for a first event showing the Epik.com event is off to a respectable start.The auction sum was almost $48K in total for eleven domain names. The big tipoff moneychanger was $17,500 for ComputerTips.com. Pillows.net had a soft landing at $16,000. TacticalKnife.net cut up at $3,000. Next up was Beachbags.net. for a respectable chunk of change for a dot-net, bagged at $2500.

Then Camcorder-Microphones, long but useful, was picked up by a $2,000 bid. BeerCoolers.net iced out at $1500. Exercise mat.net was rolled up at $1,200. KidsChairs.net sat down for $1250. CottonThread.com was strung up at $1100. ClothingRack.net racked up about $1,000, followed by DVDStand.com which stood for a thrifty $700.

The Epik Developer’s Conference in Seattle continues, flavored by strategic speakers marketing their domain and site development profit models. While some domain market watchers speculated this was a poor showing, some industry veterans commented that “for an initial event auction to turn close to $48K is more than a modest success”. Epik.com’s 1st conference continues through today.

    The auction is far from over- there were BIG buyers there and on the phone (at least 3 of the largest portfolio holders in the world). Moniker knows how to covert that enthusiasm to sales in the extended portion.

  2. There were also more than $100K in domain sales at SwapFest. I am sure you will be hearing a lot more about the Dutch Auction format. It worked really well with more than $100K transacted across more than 200 lots in less than 90 minutes with everyone having a great time of it.
