The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 16th of February
The other day we learned that Dn Forum was down for server upgrades. It’s still not up, It looks like the server’s based in Texas and is run by a regular hosting company. I assume they’ll be out of business soon if upgrades routinely take this long.
Maybe the forum is now self hosted, and they’re building it old school.
I watched the latest interview today from DomainSherpa.com Great interview and lots of information, but I walked away with more questions than I started with. I started writing the questions out on domainsherpa.com in the comments section, but maybe I’ll do a future post here and see if anyone has the info.
To touch on it quickly now, I’m having trouble figuring out the 30 day RGP. Looking at ICann’s website, it seems that it’s the fail safe for several erroneous deletion errors, either an error by the Registrant, the Registrar or the Registry. In the interview Chris wasn’t sure if the expired names are required to go the full 30 days. I don’t see how they can. Take NameJet or Snap exclusive auctions for example, If I’m the only one placing the back order, it’s in my account as soon as I pay, if there’s more than 1 bidder we go to the auction. So where do the extra 3 days come from? Is it possible for the original registrant to claim the name even if it’s in another account? They have 30 days of RGP right?
I also don’t understand the fee, Icann’s website states that max a registrar can charge to RESTORE a name in RGP is $80 plus the reg fee. There was talk of there being a fee that’s charged the registry that is then passed on to the registrant. They speculated that the registrar might pay the fee for names at auction with bids. If this is the case, Godaddy closeout auctions would lose money. Name.com also does a similar Progressive Diminishing price, BIN sale for expiring domains. The names will go all the way down to the reg fee before going to I assume pending delete. A buyer can purchase them at anytime during that process and the names are in their account.
Godaddy and Namepal, who has a process similar to Godaddy, allow the original registrant to reclaim the name all the way to just before pending delete even post auction. It would seem they are the only two systems that allow the full 30 day RGP to take place. What am I missing? This happens at Godaddy more than people might think. I’ve had it happen with closeout Names, the original registrant wasn’t doing it because he was testing the auction process, because I only paid $11 +reg.
Also the whole Netsol thing has me confused. In the past I’ve had maybe 300 names at Netsol, only about 20 now. I certainly didn’t register them there on purpose. All of my names at NetSol came from SnapNames exlusives, Drop catches or daily deals. Did this change at some point, and now they use NameJet?

They’re all 5N and that’s never a bad thing. I would say the first one ends up the highest of the group simply because it doesn’t have a 4. Or as Josh calls it “the good number”
I’ve figured out he does this so I go on an unchecked diatribe, and it sounds something like, “These were basically free 16 months ago, now they’re pushing 1k”… Buy I’m not taking the bait this time.
887070.com Love the flow of this one. I may take a ponder at this come a little later in the morning
Has a BIN. That is a good 6n.
ZHM.co Hottest thing since dot me

Every day when I type these most of the LLLL.net are at $200 to $225. At least its consistent
They’re like lemmings, they all go for around the same price everyday. I have no idea what the price will be tomorrow. There’s usually a 20-30% swing back and forth.
HHHW.org If this one doesn’t have value then none of the LLLL.orgs will
wow if this didn’t reach $100 I will go in and delete all the .orgs I have. All of them.
W6.biz Should be a lot more valuable than most LLL.biz
? Has a BIN
565T.com, 565N.com, 565N.com and 636s.com Funny thing is 6 years ago I loved this type but the holding cost would have made these break even at $60.
? I was selling them on Afternic for $250 a couple months ago… Who knows.
333.mobi We’ll find out if NNN.mobi has any value
? I typed it into NameBio.com and I don’t think their software recognizes it as a legitamate extension.
211320.com, 274448.com, 144454.com, 737075.com 499958.com and 201586.com For all of you adding the zero and 4 6Ns. I have been adding some because I think the zeros offer value. But I could be wrong and you could lose all your money and half to take a job pouring sand in all the divots at the smallest golf course in North Dakota
? Look at all those 4’s! Nice!
507858.com These are the type I’ve been buying for $50 or $60. Although most of mine start with 8 now that I think of it
? Ends in 8 not too bad.
Printers.info No reserve. 3D may not be as hot as it was but this isn’t limited to just that. This is all printers past and future
1,383 USD But you can’t make any money with it, it will only give you information.
DotCom.org Love the thought but love the irony more
400 USD It’s cute, but I wouldn’t pay $400, simply to own an ironic name.
MRJI.com The seller has done a lot of business so he may have a reasonable reserve to get this sold
1,400 USD Mr Ji
JBRO.com 19 years old. A lot of guys still call each other bro so big value. Or maybe just an acronym
1350 USD 4 Flippa Auctions and all of them sold! I don’t freakin believe it!!
673.org It’s funny that LLLL.org are in the $30 range and a NNN is only $600. Something is out of whack
2151 USD Seems to have caught up.
833.org Over 2K ends tomorrow
797.org Same as above.
These are even better but the price isn’t even at $600 yet.
