Next Navigation putting several category-killing domain names up for auction at GreatDomains

Feline.com for $1,000 USD?  Some very highly valued, category-killing domain names are being put up for auction at the next Sedo/GreatDomains auction starting January 20, 2011.  And it looks like Sedo, has one company in particular to thank for making the auction so great – Next Navigation Pty Ltd, the Australian web development and online advertising company.

Among the domain names being offered by Next Navigation include GasStation.com, Pathology.com, Feline.com, InternetBrowser.com, Rivalry.com, Trillion.com, and Neonlight.com.

Just how much money will Next Navigation make?

The shortlist of names mentioned previously, is valued at over $1 million by Valuate.com, but the auction listings combined have a significantly lower reserve price.  

GasStation.com, which appraises at $840,000 is currently listed with a reserve range  of 5,000 – 9,999 USD. 

Feline.com, which appraises for $117,000 is only listed with a reserve price range of 1,000 – 4,999 USD, as are names like InternetBrowser.com and Rivalry.com.

While Feline.com has a low reserve price, it’s final auction price will be much higher with the bidding action it’s likely to draw.  In 2005, Feline.com sold for $15,000 at GreatDomains and Pathology.com sold for $22,000, so you know Next Navigation is looking to make a deal.

The company owns hundreds of category-killing domain names, not included in the auction as well.  Names like Salaries.com, Jail.com and VOIPphones.com. 

It’s unknown why the company is putting up so many names at once, but these kind of reserve prices will certainly attract bidders early, and create some bidding wars right up until the very last minute.
