Go Daddy logoGo Daddy Auctions is to auction off 42 single and two character domain names such as A.ORG from 18 to 28 March. Go Daddy and Public Interest Registry (PIR) have teamed up to auction the domain names.

The .org TLD is reputed to be the most-trusted domain extension, according to a CARAVAN Omnibus domain consumer survey in 2011, large corporations, non-profits, special interest groups and even SMBs can benefit from leveraging .ORG domain names to strengthen their brand message world-wide.

“Companies want a short, snappy domain name, and these dot-ORG names are what you could call the ‘cream of the crop,’” said Go Daddy Director of Domain Name Aftermarkets Paul Nicks. “Go Daddy’s auction platform is extremely user friendly, making it easy to bid-on and track listings both online and via mobile devices. As far as integrating these very valuable names into an organization’s culture, we are offering personalized support to Go Daddy Auction winners to help ensure they are successful.”

Saying why they went with Go Daddy to auction off the domain name, PIR Chief Executive Officer Brian Cute said “Go Daddy met and exceeded all our requirements to handle the sale of our single- and two-character domain names. Go Daddy clearly understands and cares for our brand, and they offer their customers the very best tools required to grow an online presence.”

In the secondary marketplace, past sales of valuable .ORG domain names have included DIY.org for $60,000, AutoInsurance.org for $440,000 and Poker.org, which sold for $1 million. It is expected the historic auction of these single- and two-character .ORG domain names will not only generate high bids, but also help define the aftermarket prior to the introduction of new gTLDs.
