DALLAS — An exclusive joint partnership has been announced between Heritage Auctions and RightOfTheDot, LLC to provide live auctioneer and live online auction services for premium domains in new TLD extensions that are being launched over the next several years.

Examples of premium domain names that may potentially be for sale via this new offering could include names like Night.Club, Tour.London, Hotels.NYC, Divorce.Law, Poker.Vegas, Concert.Tickets, and on, across the spectrum of recently created new domain space. The partnership will also continue to provide auctions of existing, established TLDs such as premium .Com domains.

Heritage and RightOfTheDot will also offer additional Contention Resolution Auction Services, such as a customized ascending clock auction service to help competing applicants for new TLDs resolve their contention prior to last resort auctions being offered by ICANN.

With a combined 30 years of experience, Michael and Monte have participated in more than $350,000,000 in domain sales, advised and assisted in launching many of the existing 22 gTLDs, and pioneered many domain industry products and services.

"Our exclusive partnership provides the industry with a unique, worldwide live auction platform that hasn't existed until now. Heritage's leading technology and long history combined with our industry experience and success is custom made to offer the very best service to the entire domain name industry for years to come."
