    Start Your Own Domain Auction Site?

    I just came across the Domain Auctions Script and the demo of it at domainauctionsscript.com.

    The idea of creating my own domain auction site seems interesting.

    What do you think?

    One could make a go of it, but it's going to take deep pockets to out market the big players ... or something that makes your service much more attractive to the buyers or sellers.

    This is actually a nice script. If you venture over to namepros and look in the script section he is giving 7 day trials of this

    Server costs for a serious auction site are insanely high as you have to guarantee 100% uptime and quick response.

    I remember Bido.com - Bid on Bido - v1.1371 crashing on a hot auction.

    Shenron's right. With auction sites, you can go from 2% server utilization 250% server utilization in the blink of an eye.

    I used to run this script on one of my domains, but I failed to market the site properly and I ended up using the domain for something else, now I'm not even using it. Go figure...

    I am set up something like that. Only locally on my tongue, on line without charge. Too much fraud is on the internet, so just for this reason could fail. We will see, time will show whether the decision is positive.
