Bidding hots up for .asia domain names

The .asia domain has officially gone live, heating up the battle among bidders to obtain the most valuable or popular web addresses.

And a quick look at the live auction ticker run by DotAsia Organisation, reveals some very interesting domain names remain available to the highest bidder, for example:

  • Australiancricketboard.asia (auction starts April 7).
  • Bearstearnsasialtd (auction starts April 8).
  • Cablenewsnetwork.asia (auction starts April 8).

Among those web addresses that have already been auctioned off, prices seem to range between $1000 and $5000, although a few, such as ace.asia, have topped more than $20,000. Some domain names that have already sold include:

  • Lottery.asia ($1050).
  • Travelinsurance.asia ($2050).
  • Ace.asia ($20,501).
  • Jokes.asia ($1284).
