Day two of NamesCon was a blast and my schedule was completely packed pretty much for every minute of the day and night. I can’t say it enough, so I’ll say it again, we have such an incredible community and catching up with old friends and making new friends just feels great. Everyone is full of energy, the domain industry is on fire, for anyone who ever thought Domaining was a dying industry…time to eat your words. Seriously, the data that has come out about domain sales is 2018 is absolutely staggering.
I’ll be putting together a much more comprehensive post with reflections, data, and some other good stuff tomorrow. For now, I just landed back in San Francisco, and suffice it to say, I’m going to bed. Of course I can’t just leave you hanging so I thought I’d leave you with some photo highlights from yesterday, enjoy and stay-tuned!
The NamesCon auction was a HUGE success, you can see all the results on OnlineDomain.com. The top sale went to OL.com which sold for $900,000, after that was another monster domain – Leads.com which went for $435,000.
Yancy from HasTraffic.com showed up to the auction looking mighty spiffy so I decided to give him the “Best Dressed Domainer” award, come on – who can beat the green suit?
The ICA dinner was a lot of fun, great food and a really solid crowd. After the dinner we all went up to the Foundation Room, which meant that my NamesCon experience involved going to the Foundation Room every night, which is awesome.
Of course it’s safe to say, we all had a blast and while I thought I might be able to end the night early, as usually happens in Vegas. Hey I managed to get a full 8 hours of sleep the first night…so how could I possibly manage that for two nights in a row?
Okay, time for bed – looking forward to sharing more NamesCon reflections, data, and industry buzz with all of your tomorrow, for now – goodnight.
