BQB.com has recently started operating as a new auction site for short domains:
BQB.com is a no commission, next generation domain name auction platform dedicated to short domains. Founded in March 2008, BQB.com Inc seeks to reduce the pain sellers of domain names currently endure, paying exhorbitant commissions which are in our opinion often unjustified. BQB.com also seeks to create a marketplace for short domain names, which we believe will continue to be one of the strongest appreciating internet investments for many years to come. BQB is founded on Professionalism – each member is individually screened, successful applications are manually approved. Better Quality Business really is just a few keystrokes away!
Register here and read this announcement for more info on how to proceed:
This is just a reminder that everyone please send “Reece” a private message on Namepros or DN Forum after you’ve applied for an account. All applications are being manually approved and if I can’t verify who you are, I can’t approve your account! If you’re not a member of Namepros or DN Forum but would like to join BQB while we’re still in Beta, kindly send me an email to: reece(at)bqb.com from a paid email address (eg. not hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc).
To increase your chances of being granted membership if you’re not a well known member of Namepros or DN Forum, please write a bit about yourself, your domaining ambitions, and include a sample of some of the short domains in your collection. BQB is 100% free (aside from optional upgrades) for everyone signing up at this point — we’re charging you zero commission and no membership fees — BQB really is 100% free permanently for everyone whose Beta applications are approved. Please don’t worry if your application is unsuccessful during Beta, we’ll open up to more domainers once we get an established user base and ensure BQB is as scalable as it need be.
There will never be any commission on BQB, even if you don’t get in during Beta.
As for now there are about 400 domains listed there for sale and the site has over 50 members. Lets wish Reece good luck with the new enterprise and hope we get a fair alternative to sedo!
P.S.: make sure you enter DomainMagnate in the “referred by” field 😉
