AVN Director of Licensing Farley Cahen and Moniker co-founder and CEO Monte Cahn promoted the auction and Internext event Wednesday on the free Internet radio show "Domain Masters" on WebMasterRadio.fm. A rebroadcast of the segment is available on the site.
During the Internet radio show, Cahen noted previous auctions held at Internext events have seen some interesting site names go for substantial amounts of money.
"Last year, we saw SheMale.com go for $525,000," he said. He also noted buyers at the live auctions include everyone from people with new money looking to make a dent in the adult online world, as well as old-school video producers who are using the Internet to keep their businesses viable in a technological age.
Cahen continued, "Internext-Expo is the premier B2B Adult Webmaster event in the world. We are extremely excited to bring back this exclusive Adult Domain Auction for the third time with Moniker"
"This time, there will be more than 2,000 names to choose from [during the online auction], and more than 200 at the live auction," added Cahn.
Moniker was responsible for selling more than $20 million in adult-related domains in 2007 including the domains sold at both InterNext auctions last year.
This year, domain names such as BJ.com, Taboo.com, Bisexual.com, CelebTape.com, BondageDVDs.com and GothicDVDs.com are among the hot properties available for purchase.
"Moniker's domain name auctions at Internext allow online entrepreneurs interested in beginning or expanding their online businesses an opportunity to purchase both new and developed domains that will enhance the value of their portfolio," said Monte Cahn, co-founder and CEO of Moniker.com. "We are pleased that we are able to bring our auction back to Internext in 2008 and hope to replicate the success we had in 2007."
