An exciting opportunity to acquire the best traffic-generating domain names

Above.com and the iDate Conference have teamed up to bring you an exciting business opportunity within the industry via a live auction of business specific domain names. The Online Domain Auctions ending during the London conference give you the chance to acquire the premier web addresses you need to build your brand and expand your network of top performing websites.

Domain Auctions offer window to true domain values
Dating.com sold for USD $1.75 Million

Domains submitted will be considered for the upcoming auction. The Above.com team is currently evaluating all of these to select on the best 2,000 domains for the Online Domain Auction. Only the highest quality premium domains will be selected. In addition, the top 100-200 names will be presented in a one-hour Live Domain Auction during the event, held at May 29 to June 5, 2014.

High profile domains typically offer some of the best targeted audiences due to their high volumes of natural type-in traffic (a.k.a. direct navigation). Research suggests that visitors who arrive at a site through direct navigation - whether branded or generic - typically have conversion rates that are double that of search traffic.

Historically, domain names values have been on the rise.

The Above.com's Online Domain Auction at the iDate Conference will be available for viewing in May 2014. Click this link to see the domains.
