    Hi Folks,
    I just wanted to see if anyone knows of a Domain Auction site for the Australian .au namespace.

    I don't think there is but wanted t check anyway.

    Cheers,
    K77.

    Nothing dedicated to .au since Netfleet's Aftermarket auctions ceased.

    Closest is Flippa and eBay

    Freelancer launched Freemarket.com the other week as a direct competitor to Flippa.

    I think with auction sites like Flippa you are likely going to have to bring your own buyers to the auction.

    I don't think enough AU domain buyers frequent it enough to foster an environment of competitive bidding like you might see on a site like NetFleet.

    That said, Flippa have only been taking domains serious for the last few months, and they seem to be putting more and more effort into this area.

    They just need to work out how to leverage their existing database.
