How does the auction work?

- In early December through Feb 14th, names are loaded into the special event auction for pre-bidding and testing on GoDaddy Auctions. You can place pre-bids on domain names through the special RightOfTheDot / NamesCon Premium Domain Auction.
- On January 27th, approximately 125 of these premium names will be selected to go to live auction on January 30th at NamesCon Global in Austin, Texas.
