The Daily Recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 15th and 16th of May 2016
Just got an email from Pheenix.com asking me if I wanted to list any names for auction. I talked to Travis earlier today and he said that they’ve been in beta testing for some time now. They said they were taking short and numeric domains, has anybody out there been a part of the testing or know anything about this? I’m interested and may send them some names. I’m not sure if their catch inventory has gotten smaller or they’re looking for new revenue streams, either way I’m glad they’re doing it. It seems like Pheenix gets good prices on Short and numeric when they have them and they already have a diverse and international buyer base. Competition is good. We shall see.
I didn’t do a recap post from the list I did the other day. I started to and then stopped when I couldn’t think of anything else to say about the names. I’ve added a quick recap at the bottom in addition to the regular quick recap. Thanks again to Shane for having me do the list, I always have fun with it.
TheFilmRoom.com No bidders. 16 years old. Good name for a movie review of information site. Domain is cheaper than a ticket for an IMAX with G Shock
FH.biz Nice and short and biz works for local businesses IMO. I would remember this if it was on the side of a van. Of course that’s what I do for a living so don’t use me as an example
Has a BIN Firehouse.
PureSpeculation.com Buy the rumor and sell the news. Speculation is how big money is made and lost. Nobody speculating on the name though. No bidders. 16 years old
? I like this one, don’t know what it went for.
BodyMend.com Fantastic physical therapy or massage company name
165 USD Everyone needs mending at some point.
MatchItUp.com Not even sure what I’m matching but pretty happy to have another. No bidders
ImportedRugs.com Millions of results for these keywords and yet no bidders. Most towns have at least one store that sells high end imported rugs
CM88.com This one would have gotten a ton of action a few months ago. 88 is always a good investment IMO
HeadJelly.com I don’t know what head jelly is or can be but like the name as a brand. Can triple your money if you sell it for $50
HeliService.com This past month I see commercials for helicopter ambulance insurance every single morning. This is a great name for the service. But I admit it looks like the biggest waste of money I’ve seen on television lately.
760 USD Depends where you live there may not be an expedient way to get you to definitive care.. Some insurance won’t pay for the bill, the cost of an Air ambulance ride can be over $20k.
WithoutMeasure.com 119,000 backlinks. And there are times that I think this is also how my bathroom was built. The angles seem off to me.
200 USD Crooked angles add Character to any room
? While I think there is intrinsic value in a college education, not everyone is suited for college and not all skilled jobs need college. There should be just as much educational emphasis and gaining traded and skills that don’t need a college degree.
ScrapMetalPrice.com I look it up every week since I have a recycle dumpster that I keep and send in. There are regional price differences but it would be nice to have a simple site with prices as a guide. Sure its out there but this would be a better name
217 USD There was a similar name the other day, there are scrapers in every town and a truck load of metal can be worth a lot of money.
GolfLikeAPro.com I would settle to just be as good as the 8th grader across the street
? I’m a horrible golfer, I go once every five years or so.
DataPlanning.com Any time you get a billion results on Google when you type out the domain name you know you have a pretty solid name
898 USD that’s a lot of data planning. It’s like retirement planning, except data quadruples every year.
GrowAndLive.com Nice and simple though and brand. Although I like Live and grow better but I imagine that would be a little more than $20
155 USD Could be a plant name too.
OpenStory.com Nobody likes stories with boundaries
521 USD Or books you can’t open.
660 USD I was not aware of the Ghetto Panda trend.
TLV.cc The V makes this one not as fun
2,830 USD 123.WTF? I own that and like to give it a shameless plug every now and then, but seriously?
34X.com Short and also my waist size. 33 when I’m in shape
? Fricken skinny people…
TheHempNetwork.com Sponsored by Doritos
510 USD It’s actually a Tech product, all of the infrastructure is made out of hemp.
ChronicClub.com I can see it in Colorado. A monthly gift box of cannabis
360 USD Geez so many cannabis names to choose from.
RXPA.com 401 USD Perscription from the Physicians assitant
RXGA.com 280 USD Perscription from the General Aviation? No that doesn’t work
LETF.com 449 USD Left spelled wrong
233881.com This would have gotten $400 plus 6 weeks ago
214 USD It does look pretty
Weddings.cc One of the better .cc names you can own. They’re always pretty cheap compared to the usability IMO
155 USD Weddings Church Chapel?
NovaZone.com Sounds kind of techy. Sounded even more techy 19 years ago when it was first registered
355 USD new zone
OnlineTeller.com No bidders at $12 and has some age. NetTeller and a few others used to be a big thing back in the early days
150 USD More banks are popping up that are all or mostly online.
NativeForest.org Perfect tld for the cause. Nothing hotter than native anything right now. And trust me I know, I hear about it every day.
MiamiPlants.com I know this one pretty well too. I saw a few garden centers in Miami amidst all the neon
109 USD Are these plants specific to Miami or is it the place to buy plants in Miami?
NewYorkCityPlants.com One more city that sells plants. The price of the domain is less than the cost of a plant
CaliforniaAutos.com No bidders. Last time I checked there were a few guys here and there selling cars in California
1,050 USD Well that took off.
510 USD List anything for free, the only problem is you’ll get spammed with crap
NYCCondos.com With the price of NYC real estate, owning any domain related to that would be a good investment in my opinion
7,000 USD I can’t afford either.
OutToEat.com Millions of Americans and people around the world go out to do this several times a week. Probably more than they should
915 USD Good name, I like it.
IPW.cc I’m still a fan of LLL.cc I’m back to the original reason I liked them. Short and easy to type
502 USD These are certainly gaining momentum.
NeedANewName.com No bidders. Good name for a site that helps companies get a better domain
? Or a site for people on the run.
MusicAlley.com “Because the best stuff is in the back”. Free slogan with purchase
3,050 USD Don’t understand the wholesale price, not gonna lie, but I’m probably missing something.
LoadBit.com No bids at $12. A nice little brand name for a file sharing site or data management
172229.com 185 USD
172225.com 227 USD
562229.com 181 USD
612225.com 227 USD
A good collection of triple repeating 2s for under $50
KUII.com 1,035 USD
ZZKE.com 1,855 USD huh?
LLUV.com 761 USD
IVMG.com 305 USD
A few for you to put in your domain pockets
FitnessChallenge.com Officially buying a website but the name is the value. Getting up in the morning and out the door is really the challenge
Drone.in Second only to VR names right now. Surprised this one is 8 years old. Somebody knew
Recap from 5/14
