From the moment I joined Tucows back in August of 2007, I felt there was an opportunity to improve the way we auctioned off expired domain names. Ten months later, after a ton of work by an army of talented people (go teams!), I can finally reveal that Tucows has collaborated with Namemedia’s Afternic.com to auction our expired domain names.
I am super excited about this because this was by the most challenging -- and therefore fascinating to me -- Internet project I have worked on to date in my career. While on the surface it might seem simple, there were (as my colleague Zeljko would say) lots of moving parts.
You can read all the gory details in the official press release. Then you should head on over to Afternic and start bidding on some of the names!
