It’s not uncommon in the United States to hear veteran hosting and domain pros talk about the “Wild West” days of the industry when start-ups were emerging, the internet was exploding, and domains were the prized real estate of the communications age.
Well, the internet’s Wild West is still here … it’s just moved 14,000 km further west!
The Indian domain market is the fastest-growing in the world – expanding at nearly 12% per year. And the economics and demographics suggest that this growth is just beginning. On a total internet penetration rate, India is today where the US was in 1997.
Just think about that for a moment and imagine the possibilities. Digital fortunes will be made here over the next decade.
NamesCon brings Sedo’s GreatDomains Auction to India
Sedo’s GreatDomains Auction begins on May 12, 2017, and runs until the grand finale of NamesCon India on May 19. More than 80 premium domains will be up for grabs, including several chosen specifically to cater to the Indian marketplace.
These online domain auctions tend to build up steam as they near the end, and this one is scheduled to conclude in sync with NamesCon India 2017 in Mumbai.
During the final hour of the auction, top domain brokers will be live on the main stage at NamesCon India to evaluate the hottest domains in the auction and speculate at their value as local and world-wide compete until the virtual gavel comes down at 4:30 PM. Then everyone at NamesCon India will see if the expert estimates were met, fell short, or were exceeded.
Let’s see if the experts can handle the pressure.
