The home page for the city’s auction of “Premium”.nyc domain names states:
“It has always been the City’s goal to put these valuable domains in the hands of organizations and individuals who will put them to their best use.”
In the city’s initial high-bid auction of a group of real estate related domain names, completed on October 27, 2016 (see post), 20 names were put up for auction. But as of February 1, 2017 none were in use, providing useful service for city residents. Most of the names were parked at Sedo or available for resale at Upgrade.nyc and DmainNameSales.com.
