10 Year Old Domain Name, 3-D.com, Available Through Public Auction by Sedo.com
(Gawkwire.com) 3-D.com, a website that has been around since 1998, will soon be up for grabs through auction by Sedo.com. The domain's long time presence on the Internet makes it a valuable piece of web real estate and an asset to a variety of search campaigns based on domain history. This short and simple name also makes it easy to remember, a key factor in online campaigns today when half the battle is getting people to remember where they are supposed to go.
Bidding will open at 2:00 PM EST on Thursday, October 16th, 2008 in the United States. Sedo.com is hosting the sale and is certifying bidders in preparation for the scheduled auction. GreatDomains.com, a partner of Sedo.com, is listing 3-D.com at the top of its "premium auction" category based on the simplicity of the name and age of the domain.
3-D.com has been online for 10 years and until recently served as an information source for three dimensional or "3D" resources, news and links. The domain makes use of a hyphen to distinguish it as a site pertaining to 3-D or 3-dimensional topics, as opposed to the more ambiguous 3D.com. Hyphenation of domain names is a tricky concept and an often controversial argument among savvy internet users, but as "3-D" is the correct abbreviation for three-dimensional, the domain name is technically and grammatically correct.
The domain name auction is slated to run for one week, from October 16th to October 23rd. Bidding will begin at $1000 USD, a conservative figure given the domain's history and variety of applicable uses. The domain name is well suited for a variety of 3-D art or animation companies or 3-D modeling and design firms. For more information, please view the auction listing for 3-D.com at Sedo.com.
