DomainConsultant.com Opens Domain Name Auction

Inventory Includes HappyBirthday.com, Balloon.com, Music.net

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - March 18, 2010) - DomainConsultant.com today announced the opening of its annual auction, Domain Madness 2, with a catalog of seventy high-end domains priced from $1 to $1.5 million.

"We believe in finding and offering singular domains with advertising, marketing and search engine optimization value," says DC Analyst, Mike Fiol, citing the fact that HappyBirthday.com is listed on the first page of Google, Yahoo and MSN under the term "happy birthday."

This and other reasons are why the DM2 Auction comes on the heels of what has been a steady climb for domain names in value and credibility -- attracting new and varied buyers.

"Domain names are global, thus they have retained and increased their value as an asset, property and investment hedge," adds Fiol. "Outside money has been flowing in just as it has been fleeing all the other options."

Result is sales such as that of Toys.com for over $5 million or the recent purchases of Poker.org for one million and Guns.com for $800,000.

"The domain name industry has reached a level of maturity, beyond the bubbles, because more and more investors, companies and individuals are realizing it's the same deal as in real estate," says another DC Analyst, Adam Strong, who also runs Domain Name News. "It's about location, location, location."
