Roughly valued at $55,000, expires


Despite the high priced public sales of domain names in 2010, it’s still hard to believe the caliber of some domain names that individuals and companies let expire.  This year alone, sold for $131,400, sold for $18,800, sold for $13,100, and sold for $12,906 – all domain names that expired after the previous owners failed to renew the registration.   Those are just a few examples.

Now add to the mix.   

Roughly valued at $55,000 USD by, the domain expired on 11/20/2010 and is pending renewal or deletion.

With a backorder deadline of Dec. 25, 2010 8:00 PM PST, the expired domain has nearly 200 pre-bids already placed on NameJet, with a high pre-bid of $2,085. 

But once the private auction ends, you can expect it to go for a lot more.

Any guesses on how much the name will sell for?
