This year, a new domain auction platform launched with professionalism and innovation. Boxcar.com is a online platform build just for selling domains.

Boxcar has found a way to weed out some junk by charging to sign up for an account and also to post an auction. This way people who are bidding are people who will end up paying for the domain and the sellers are not going to list domains that suck because they will loose money.

Boxcar has done a great job of integrating estibot, domain tools, twitter, and facebook into every auction. Its a great platform for seller also because there are no commissions besides the initial listing fee. Boxcar also provides great tools for sellers to promote their own auctions.

The site now has over 1,000 quality members in only 3 months of being online.  The top auction closed with over 137 bids and the highest bid to date was yesterday on Lean.com for $38,000 which was just under reserve. Some other nice sales I have seen were StreamingTV.com for $8,000 and Telescopes.org for $4,000 plus many others under $2500.

When I look at most auction lots there are still some great high priced names, but I have found names that even I can afford. I really like the platform and I am thinking about holding my own small auction early in the new year. The buyers are already on the site looking for quality names.

One thing I would change is that in their banner ads they mostly show the high dollar domain auctions. They should showcase some of the medium and lower priced domains once and a while.

Look out for Boxcar early next year to roll out with some more great changes, great names, and killer updates. They are winding down auctions for the end of the year, but will be back on the first of the new year!

    At this point, I don’t care for the site. I think BargainDomains.com is a much better auction platform.

    I gone give you a secret, the success is not in the marketplace, the technology, not even in the audience. It’s simply in the quality of listed names and their prices. The main challenge of this business is here:
    Succeed to convince domain owners to list names of quality at reasonable prices.
    Buyers go where good deals are available, including me.

    nice post – i might give them a shot – they lowered the cost to $1 and $5 per name – which isnt bad.
