Last Thursday I wrote about NameJet throwing its hat into the emoji domain ring with its own premium emoji .ws domains.
While checking the auction status NameJet’s premium emoji .ws domains, I noticed there were 27 PreRelease emoji domain auctions nearing their backorder closing time of 10PM CST / 11PM EST.
It’s worth nothing a number of today’s 27 PreRelease emoji domain auctions nearing backorder closing do have RESERVES.
But don’t let that get you down because I discovered the following PreRelease emoji domain auctions with NO RESERVE:
And although an apples-to-oranges comparison, it’ll be interesting to compare NameJet’s reserve and no-reserve emoji domain auction prices to GoDaddy emoji domain expiring auction prices.
Nevertheless, time is of the essence as only a few hours remain until backorder time expires. Hurry along, yet cast your bids wisely! 😉
Things to Know About NameJet Auctions
If you’re unfamiliar with NameJet auctions, here’s a quick and dirty breakdown of how their auctions in short:
- If a domain in auction receives no backorder bids, then the domain is not auctioned and returns to existing domain owner/registrant.
- If a domain in auction has a RESERVE and receives only one (1) backorder bid and bid was not above reserve amount, then the domain is not auctioned and returns to existing domain owner/registrant. If backorder bid amount exceeds reserve amount, then the domain is awarded to bidder and auction ends.
- If a domain in auction has NO RESERVE and receives only one (1) backorder bid, then the domain is awarded to bidder and auction ends.
- If a domain in auction has NO RESERVE and receives multiple backorder bids, then the domain is sent to 3-Day private auction, and highest bidder wins and is awarded domain. For domain auctions with reserves, highest bidder is only awarded domain if bid amount exceeds reserve amount.
It’s worth noting backorders can’t be placed once a public auction starts, but you use the watch option when using advanced search.
Hopefully that answers basic Namejet auction questions, and helps you get started quickly.
