Financial Aid or Financial Aide? Both are Worth a Lot of Money

Moniker just completed its live auction at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York and the top two domain names to sell were for $480,000 and for $320,000.  Wow!  That’s a lot of jack for someone looking to score big in the financial aid business.  But who could forget that name in the year of the bailout? 

Financial aid?  We all need it, especially the 4 million who’s houses have been foreclosed on this year.  But these two domain name auctions where not the only ones to score big last week.

Sedo made news on 3 domain names. sold for $200,000.  Help me out on that one.  I think this one had to have swept up by Riva Motorsports. (Spanish for house), sold for 87,000 Euros, or almost $121,000 and the third domain Sedo auction was (a 2-number dot com) that sold for $124, 555.55.  An odd number indeed. Sells for $20,000, a very brandable Internet domain name, sold for $20,000 on  And much to everyone’s surprise, the 3-letter dot com domain name,, sold on Sedo for only $16,000. Other surprises included which sold for only $2,050. 

While caught everyone by surprise on the low side, went for $5,000.  Go figure?  Think that’s crazy, how about selling for 4,500 Euros.  They one really has me buffaloed.  Can’t wait to see how they plan to use the domain name. 

What’s next on the horizon?  Well, you can look forward to seeing what goes for on Sedo.  Currently its at $16,000 (1 bid only) and has 1 day and 10 hours left on a 7-day auction. 

On the 3-letter front, is currently at $4,600 with 7 bids and only 10 hours left to before closing. is standing at $2,050 with 2 bids and 3 days, 16 hours to go.  The most popular auction on is with 15 bidders.  However, top bid is sitting at $510 dollars.  Bidding on closes in 25 hours.
