If you’ve always wanted to own a premium domain name, now may be your big opportunity. Yahoo! announced on its Tumblr blog that it is auctioning more 100 domain names. But if you go to the Sedo page for the Yahoo! account, there are actually more than 500 domain names on the list. Some of them look pretty good.

The reserve price for these domain names range from $100 to $1.5 million. Some of the auctions have been identified as Top Domain Listings. These include:

  • av.com
  • webserver.com
  • westerns.com
  • transmissions.com
  • sled.com
  • sandwich.com
  • blogsport.com
  • crackers.com
  • truestory.com
  • airtrafficcontrol.com
  • raging.com
  • jockeys.com
  • religious.net
  • irecruiter.com
  • vivas.com
  • finalcountdown.com
  • fonzo.com
  • laun.com
  • webcal.com
  • cyberjokes.com

The auctions are scheduled to begin today at 12:00 noon EST. That’s in just a few minutes, in case you’re wondering.

I never knew Yahoo! was in the domain name speculation business, but I guess it’s not surprising when you consider they’ve been around for a long time. They no doubt saw the potential in some of these domain names way back when. The big questions is this: Why are they getting rid of them?

Is Yahoo! just dumping domain names they have no need for or did they not figure out a good business plan for them? Or maybe they just bought them to sell them off for a profit later, and now is “later.”

If you’re in the market for a premium domain name and you’re sure you’ve got a good business idea to use it for, then now is your chance to enter into an auction. You could walk away with a million dollar winner. When you do, look us up. You’ll need a good search engine marketing firm.
