Sep 24, 2013

NEEDHAM, Mass., September 24, 2013:  Hilco Streambank is holding its second multi-asset premium domain name auction on October 14 – 17, 2013.  Registration and bidding will open immediately on the 14th at 10 a.m. The auction will be conducted on Hilco Streambank’s recently updated proprietary online auction platform, HilcoDomains.com.

The assets available in this auction consist of 15 domain packages, including individual domain offerings for premium names such as ROW.com, DL.com (from the former Dewey Leboeuf law firm) and LandF.com.

Many of the available domains have active links and traffic.

“Our second auction provides an amazing opportunity to acquire domain names that can be easily branded and are also highly desirable -- including two letter and three letter domains and one and two word dictionary dot-com domains, which are among the most premium assets in the Internet world,” said David Peress, EVP of Hilco Streambank.  “These are rarely available at auction and will give buyers a unique opportunity to own and build upon some of the most in-demand address types on the web.  We expect a substantial level of interest and a highly competitive sale process.”
