Oversee Web Outage Sees Changes to DOMAINfest Auctions

On Wednesday morning (8 June), several of Oversee.net’s web-based services experienced outages. This included the Moniker and SnapNames platforms, and as a result, they were unable to conduct the DOMAINfest Barcelona 2011 domain live auction, scheduled to begin at 10:00 US Eastern time.

As a result, auctions for the live and extended lots of names will be handled as follows:

  • a live auction for the lot of names scheduled for sale in Barcelona will not be conducted
  • the live auction lots have been assigned to a discrete online auction, which is already underway and will conclude on Wednesday 15 June 15 at 15:15 US Eastern time
  • SnapNames and Moniker will conduct an extended online auction for additional seller-submitted names, is already underway, and will conclude on Wednesday, 22 June at 15:15 US Eastern time.
