Yahoo Is Auctioning Off These ‘Premium’ Domain Names (Stuff Like Sandwich.com And Religious.net)
[ eCommerce]

Yahoo just announced that it is auctioning off over a hundred “premium” domain names.

“When you’re a company that’s been around as long as Yahoo, there are lots of fun things that you stumble across,” says Kevin Kramer, Deputy General Counsel for Yahoo. “This year, we found a huge list of domain names that the company has owned for quite some time.”

“As we discussed what to do with them, it became obvious that it was time to set them free…back into the wild of the Internet. Surely, creative people, businesses and entrepreneurs could come up with something great to do with them. They could even spark some brand new ideas or companies.”

Here are 29 domains Yahoo is currently listing on Sedo:

ChillerTheater.com
WebServer.com
TheBroadcastNetwork.com
FinalCountdown.com
Vivas.com
Sandwich.com
Transmissions.com
Crackers.com
Cursed.com
CyberJokes.com
GlobalWhoIs.com
Westerns.com
Laun.com
Batoota.com
Sled.com
JumpCut.com
DotBank.com
iRecruiter.com
PoliceScanner.com
WebCal.com
Fonzo.com
Religious.net
Jockeys.com
MYM.com
Raging.com
BlogSport.com
AirTrafficControl.com
TrueStory.com
AV.com

Presumably, we’ll see the rest in time. Prices for these range from $1,000 to $1.5 million.

Now, feel free to speculate about why Yahoo owns AirTrafficControl.com.
