That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably can help you..
Whoever owns IndividualRetirementAccounts.com is one gutsy guy/gal - just passed on 20k!..
WOW! Pesos.com passed up for only $35k? It's one of the most traded Forex currencies!..
Yes, the oldest HostGator of all (on the LiveAuction list only)!..
Anyone else think that stocktrades.com going for 25k was really really really cheap..
P.S. Just for this post don't look at my sig...
Carburetors passed at 25K? what was the last year a car was manufactured with a carb? 1990?..
MastersDegree.com passed on 60k - hats off to the owner!..
Cats.com owner passes on $2,000,000 - good call, it's worth more!.
It's close to perfection as .coms go..
Especially when you consider that carburetors passed at the same price.....
For 2 mil ill give you my cat and his waterbowl too...
212.net sold at 10k - talk about targeted traffic!..
Nashville.us should go for @ least $10k....
NICE $23k! There is hope for the .US..
Nashville.us - $23k sale - good deal!.
300.mobi passed at 4k - not surprising.

Europe.mobi passing at 14.5 - hopefully the third time would be a charm, it's a great name!.
Text.com sold at 300k, wonder what the .mobi would go for.....
Menopause.com passing on 1.5m, probably betting on demographic trends.
Psychologists.com sold for 160k - wouldn't you have rather had the shorter shrinks.com?..
Why so much for brackets? I don't get it..
Brackets.com sold $56,000.
Phones.mobi passed on 30k (of course)..
No bids yet. I think they are all @ the Live Auction...
Blogging.com sold at $135,000 - that was a steal!..
Total as of Bald.com: $9,000,950.
$55,000 for Lean.com, wow...
Bald.com sold for 400k and lean for 55k only, guess buyers are getting tired..
Jesus, seller had higher than $1 mil reserve for OBGYN.com?..
Based on how things are going, what do we forecast for the silent auction.... anyone?..
Check this out:.
Total sales as of SoundEngineer.com: $9,148,950.
Total of documented pass amounts as of SoundEngineer.com: $49,132,500.

I think we will see some good action there.....
168. Pimple.com - $82,500, $17,500 less than Bulk.com, lol. The range of good buys and bad buys at this auction are crazy...
Is there a way to check on the silent auction wo/ paying $500?..

This auctioneer sounds just like Lawrence Welk when he says 'Third and Final Bid"..
59. HelicopterCharters.com - $18,000.
179. Charters.com - $140,000.
Can't wait to see how How.com does...
Yep...but it didn't sould like the auctioneer gave it much of a chance...
Wow, only up to $600k on How.com...bet that was WAY off the reserve...
It ended? or did the transmission on webmaster radio end?..
Thanks, Cool - I better start saving then !.
Wow never seen so many people reading a thread. Great auction..
My little one did much better than I had expected, so I'm a happy camper.
I was surprised how high some of the reserves were...
No, happily Scotland is still part of the United Kingdom..
I didn't actually know HMG was selling it, but they must have put in a reasonably high reserve...
Anyone else sell a HostGator in the live auction? ...besides Sharon.
Wow !!! that's 10.880 TRILLION DOLLARS !!!.
(US GDP: 13 TRILLION DOLLARS) ....
No, knock a 0 off of there and you got it.
I'm happy because it was a great ROI and because of the extension..
GasolinePrices.us went for $6,000 ... (knock a 0 off , extension) ... nice sale ....
HALF A QUADRILLION NP$ ....
"The word "quadrillion" first appeared in print in 1691 when the British Admiralty wrote a report quantifying the number of rats on it's ships." (.

I don't either. Could it be some exotic adult term again?..
Probably sports, brackets with regards to tournaments like the NCAA Championship, BCS, NFL Playoffs, etc. Would be a roundabout term to capture sportsbetting, but who knows...
You know a names only worth what someones willing to pay for it. You can have a name that an auctioneer tells you it'll probably bring around 100,000 but the high bid is only $17,000 What can you do except put a high reserve on it which is hard to do with Moniker. They really like a reserve much lower than name worth to get things going...
NameTrader, you're right again it seems:.
Hope Yahoo/Overture don't sue me for pasting their data here but I do think it's fair use to use just a portion of it:.

It could be a tax reference site as well of course, but in that case they would probably need a fair amount of money to build branding awareness - since it's not intuitively obvious that one would expect to find tax info if only they would bother typing brackets.com on the off chance that they might.....
Humm, that is what it is priced @.
But, nice domain!.
Based on public sales records at.
, June 2007 has [already] set a new record for the HostGator market $19,851,547 in total sales. We've topped the prior sales records set in Jan 2000 and the only direction is up. And June is traditionally a slow month!.
I also noted published sales have broken $16M on only four occasions:.
I'll leave you to draw your own inferences about the calendar distribution and what it indicates about the strength of the current market..
And congratulations Sharon!..
Great points/analysis, and yes - June is always slow, sometimes the whole summer is almost slow enough to drive one mad (and/or insolvent)..
This year I love June though, and it ain't over yet!..
I deal a lot in the ad agency world and have many contacts there... one of the things I KNOW is happening right now is that a lot of buys are happening right now because of preparing for fall/pre-holiday advertising campaigns. Most of these are probably private and not being reported as part of public numbers. Domains are becoming an increasingly important part of marketing/advertising campaign plans and obviously if you are going to include a NEW HostGator in a campaign, you have to secure it before you can get to work on the campaign itself...
I forgot to say congratulations Sharon!.
More power to you and the ad world as a whole - I never realized how much I like advertisers!..
I was talking to a domainer who sold off a HostGator for 1.8 million USD$ at the auction and Monte came and they all started chanting Monte "Can"..
Monte told us that auction.com probably will sell soon for 5 million usd (through HostGator Capital)...
