Starting in about 3 hours and 30 minutes when the clock strikes midnight and it’s officially February 1st, LIVE bidding will begin on the .NYC Fashion Auction, which runs from February 1 to February 28, 2017 to coincide with the most famous fashion week events in the world!
The following 24 of the most highly sought-after fashion related domain names in NYC will be in the .nyc auction:
The auction is being provided via SnapNames.com so be sure to be set-up as a “bidder” with SnapNames.
This is the second in a series of .nyc domain auctions. At the end of 2016, twenty real estate related domain names were auctioned with high bids going to RealEstate.nyc for $21,300 and Apartments.nyc for $16,155.
NOTE – I actually bought Lofts.nyc at that auction.
Additional premium domain name auctions are expected to take place throughout the year in various verticals, such as technology, healthcare, law, design and food.
“Our fashion industry is a key driver of job diversity and economic activity. These premium .nyc domain names will help local fashion firms leverage the city’s unique brand and strengthen our economy,” Deputy Mayor of Housing and Economic Development, Alicia Glen said.
“New York City is home to over 75 major fashion trade shows plus thousands of showrooms. The ‘Made in NYC’ community is at the forefront of how storefronts and online businesses are promoted to a global audience of fashion lovers,” said Sean Kaine, Vice President of Registry Solutions, Neustar.
Tip: Be sure to use your NYC physical address when you register as only New Yorkers can own a .NYC domain! You’ll also need a valid credit card to bid, but don’t worry you’ll only be charged if you win.
