We need to know who you are. Set-up a “bidder” account with our exclusive auction provider

Tip: Be sure to use your NYC physical address when you register as only New Yorkers can own a .NYC domain! You’ll also need a valid credit card to bid, but don’t worry you’ll only be charged if you win (which we hope you do!).

Step 3 - Bidding

Decision time. Add the domain name, or names, you want to your shopping cart.

Once you’ve added the domains, go to your shopping cart total to place your bid.

Here, you’ll see the minimum bid required and the time remaining before bidding closes. Enter your bid(s) and click ‘place order’.

That’s it. You are an official bidder for the most techable web addresses in NYC.


Once you place a ‘watch’ or ‘bid’ on your .nyc domains, you will automatically receive updates from Snapnames to keep you informed of auction status.

Good to know: Auction events typically have light bidding throughout the event (stake your interest-bidding) but most bidding usually occurs in the final hours of the event. Mark your calendar and be sure to be prepared for the fast-moving action at the end of the auction.
