Namescon just wrapped up for 2016 and it was a blast. It was really nice seeing over 1,000 domain investors and companies come together for 4 days of fun, education and deal making. It was really nice for me to get to see old friends, meet new people and enjoy the break out sessions and learn more from all the speakers involved.
We have been lucky enough to get to know a lot of the domain name sherpas and legends in the industry. Her ein this photo above I am with Domain Sherpa Michael Cyger, Shane Cultra, Frank Schilling of Uniregistry and Drew Rosener from Media Options. These guys were nice enough to do an entire Domain Sherpa show live right on the spot and answer a few questions from the audience.
There was also an event at the night club Hakkasan in Las Vegas and was sponsored by Uniregistry. Here I was able to meet great people and have a wonderful time. One of the people I met was Morgan Linton. Morgan was on the hit show Shark Tank and was picked up by Mark Cuban on the show. His website is at MorganLinton.com and FashionMetric.com.
Christian with Morgan Linton of Fashion Metric and MorganLinton.com.
I also got to see a very good friend of mine Merlin Kauffman. Merlin has been instrumental in my domain business. Merlin is the owner of Soothe which is a business that focuses on massages on demand. Be sure to download the app and enjoy a wonderful massage at Soothe.
There was also a nice auction that took place on Monday afternoon. We will not highlight all of the action but below is some of the names that sold and there are many others that are still for sale at NameJet.com under Namescon auction. Be sure to check it out. PlentyOfbrands.com was able to secure the 1 word domain Convict.com. This is a nice double meaning word and can be a great brandable for a clothing line! One of the things that stood out to me was the prices that the new tlds were bringing. Check out the listings below. Also note that there were a few other domains that got bids up into the millions and did not meet reserve and are still available through the online auction for 5 more days.
