Social.org Domain Name Auction - Ends July 20, 2012
Given that Social.com was the top selling domain name of 2011 ($2,600,000), and given the growing success of multi-billion dollar social networking companies like Facebok, Zynga, Twitter, and LinkedIn, we receive constant inquiries about buying our Social.org domain name. In order to focus on our other sites (Nmap.Org, Insecure.Org), we have decided to let it go at auction.
Social.org is being sold at auction on Namejet.com. You can see the current bids and place your own here until the auction ends on Friday, July 20. You must also become a NameJet Verified Bidder (if you aren't already) to place bids at this level. That process can take a day or two, so don't wait until the last minute!
Social.Org is an extremely powerful name,
combining the enormously popular “social” keyword with the “Org”
extension that is commonly used by community/social sites like Wikipedia.org, Craigslist.org, WordPress.org, and
Google's OpenSocial.org. The sort of
companies that might be interested include social networking players
like Facebook, Twitter, Google, Zynga,
or LinkedIn; community/deal sites
such as LivingSocial; dating sites;
social media sites; or even a new, disruptive startup! It has already attracted 436 bidders.
