Monday, May 12, 2008 releases .ca domain auction list

Over the past weekend released their list of .ca domains to be auctioned later this month, between May 22 and May 29.

If you go to the site, click on "Dot CA Auction" at the top of the page.

It is too late to submit domains for the May auction, but I believe they are planning this to be a monthly event, so you can always submit for June.

If you want to be eligible to bid on any names, you must first pre-register at their site. I think the pre-registration is there to help minimize the occurence of non-paying bidders, or tire-kickers. If a potential bidder goes to the trouble of pre-registering, they are more qualified and seen to be more serious, which is better for everyone.

This has never been done before for .ca domains, so it will be interesting to see how successful the auction is. With the recent record sales of .ca domains, this might prove to be a good time to start a .ca auction process. The bidding and competition for .ca domains in the TBR drops has picked up in the last year, which is another good sign that this format may succeed.

There are some two letter domains in the auction, and some good generics. I have about a half dozen names in the auction myself.

Here is the list of names in the auction. You can check at the site for the reserve range for each domain:
