Domain Spotlight:

The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 19th and 20th of March 2016

Auction Quick Recap

Looks like some  categories are rebounding or at least stabilizing.  The other day in the comments I said the the Chinese market isn’t slowing, it’s expanding horizontally. To elaborate on that idea, we simply look at all the different TLD’s that have hundreds of thousands of domains registered in China or by Chinese registrars. While some of the prices have declined in the past couple of weeks, new and more speculative extensions continue to gain registrations. Like I said before, it’s hard to imagine long term decrease in com and net strings of Chinese type domains, while they’re registering LLLL  and numeric, .in, .red, more xyz, top, wang, win, link, cc, bid, pro.  I could be wrong, but it’s hard to ignore the observation.

cocosdsadYesterday’s Average 4L Chip Sales as listed on $2,077.13  These types of patterns have been doing very well lately.  Bidding wars at the end have been the driver

599 USD I think this is an undervalued price for this one. 88-1 22-1  19 years old.  Comes up twice a year for many places around the world

1,408 USD This could make a good brand, life change, rehab, personal coaching something like that.   The kind of name that sells for thousands to an end user.

1,627 USD  Air Conditioning Denver Broncos  The kind of name that can sell for thousands now

2,000 USD  Bad Domainer Potty Training   Nice marketing name for a spa or similar. One bidder at $10

103 USD  Sounds tough, like a manufacturing company. 11 years old.

650 USD Anti Terrorist Cleaning Spray   Not a CHiP and the Mum adds a little value

510 USD British for Mom  Popular site is probably the reasoning behind the bids

3,000 USD  An interesting name.  I would think the Chinese would love this

?  300 USD 325 USD

I only have two for you today. Just not a lot to buy  Everyone likes to feel special

855 USD Good name for a portal to a subscription site.  Usually there are dozens of these but today only one
202 USD   the only decent 6Ns on the board today

?  Any that you can pronounce is worth $20 IMO

?  I think you’ll do fine with all consonant

107 USD

Special Domain Shane ONLY Coupon…….. CODE IS DDCDS2015 Good 30% off Discount Domain Club to get the lowest renewal prices Godaddy offers (DDC)  This isn’t about the Chinese but rather a good two letter dot org for someone to use down the road.

3 Days left   One of the few keywords I would buy

Auction Suspended at $600 and   Both for sale in one thread.  Both used to be business sites

At $550 Pee Fan? Weird 17 years old.  All I hear about is Virtual Reality yet no bidders at $12

? I feel like this is redundant with both the e and virtual.  No bidders. 17 years old.   Penguins are pretty cool

180 USD Anyone ever watch Pingu? He’s a cool penguin    Where?  Whore?

760 USD    A CHiP but FX has been used in short names for quite a while

3,488 USD  Not really sure what Binar is or what it means but used quite a bit

2,449 USD Google says it’s Romanian No bidders at $12.  Sounds exciting

715 USD Thrillo Pads make cleaning the dishes fun and exciting  This one is double a normal 6N.  Somewhat of a pattern

461 USD So many patterns to look at.   Bottom boat.  I’m sure I’ll have more later in the list but this one 13 years old

411 USD  Home Mortgage Quality Assurance. QA is common acronym for almost every industry  Two vowels not great but throw in an 8 and it becomes the life of the party

610 USD Thought it would have gotten more with the 8    I am a buyer of these.  I think they go to four figures eventually.  But I have been wrong all the time.  It’s usually only in the NCAA bracket picks though.   Been pretty strong on domain movement.  But don’t follow my lead on domains and definitely not my basketball picks

530 USD  This one is under $150 at press time.

?, 347 USD, 310 USD, 342 USD  310 USD

Not a lot of today, compared to a boatload yesterday   Three things of two is a good thing when it comes to numerics

156 USD ABABCC   I like sequential and so do the Chinese.  Fours are good when 8s are behind them and when they are part of a sequence.  I can’t think of any other ones I like

155 USD This one is worth more than 155…  Short.  And that’s all that matters right now

?, 222 USD, 197 USD   207 USD

One of these is only at $12 at press time.  LLLL.nets really have fallen.  Opportunity or falling knife?

Uh Oh back to $200 and over  One bidder at $20.  Probably worth more

3 Days left 35K GBP   Numerics are off their peak but this type of name will continue to go up over time IMO

3 days left GBP   Another nice one.  Only a select few can afford these

3 days left 7600 GBP   The kind of name that is doing well that I mentioned in the header

Unsold I liked it last time it came up for auction.  Actually a fairly decent site

Unsold Surprised there not a bid yet.  At $1
