Greatresponder.com on Oct 11, 2012: Public interest registry has announced on Wednesday October 10, 2012 that it has established the partnership with two major web hosting and domain name registrars for auctioning the most popular short words .org domains. The one and two words domains, which were reserved earlier, have been opened for auction after approval of ICANN earlier this year. These domains are 42 in number. Now, these domains would be auctioned by the help of eNom and Godaddy.
It was further told in the statement that the auction would take place under the project name dubbed as “Project-94”; this project contains very popular domain names like a.org, pj.org, 7.org and others. It was also further informed that, nevertheless, exclusive rights have been given two both of these companies for auction of these domain names but still there are certain terms and conditions to bid for these domain names.
In a press release statement of GoDaddy web hosting and domain registrar, Mr. Paul Nicks, the director of Domain Name Aftermarkets said, “Domain names are, indeed, like ‘21st century real estate,’ more than just an address on the Web, they are an online identity. As part of this historic opportunity we look forward to assisting our customers with integrating these very valuable names into their organization’s culture.”
At the mean time, Mr. Taryn Naidu, the executive vice president of eNom Demand Media said in a press release statement, “As a long-time partner of The Public Interest Registry, we are very pleased to be able to help make these .ORG domains available for the first time to consumers. These additions both reflect and reinforce the value of the .ORG brand, and will be a truly memorable event in the domain name space.”
This project is being considered as big win for both Godaddy and eNom web hosting and domain registrars.
