The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 1st of February

Auction Quick Recap

Seems like a decent amount of 7n auctions on the Chinese Auction sites like and Who knows where this crazy ride will take us, but I do think we’re starting to see pattern and sequence start to even out with short and no pattern or meaning. They both have value and are memorable in their own way.

I mention below but I’ll do it again up here, some great tips on selling domains on the latest Domain Sherpa interview. David Kelly shows us all the skills and tips that he’s developed to sell domains to companies and end users. I haven’t really tried it yet, but I’m going to watch it again, take notes and teach my daughter to do it. She’s only 6, she had the iphone figured out at 1, so I’m guessing she’ll learn this fast. I could pull her out of school and have her work full time. I wonder if there’s any Child labor laws that wouldn’t reflect kindly on my new “home school” approach. She wants to buy, I can probably use that to entice her. “If you sell an other 100 domains, we might be able to afford it”

Another domain selling article, that I thought was great, but takes a very different approach to selling domains is Ali Zandi’s $20 Baller Challenge. dsad auction recap meme for 2/1/2016His whole emphasis is quick flipping and he shows you how to do it. The Challenge is to take $20 and turn it into $5k in 60 days, by following his plan. I’m definitely going to try it. It seems like a lot of fun and a great way to learn while working.


Yesterday’s Average 4L Chip Sales as listed on $2,024.83  20 year old   Fantastic letters and a good price

306 USD Nice double CC  Also doing very well.   104 bidders

540 USD So much for falling’s I guess. Not sure why this one is so high.  No bids.  1999 domain.  Z makes the fingers cool

Listed as BIN for $799  No bidders.  Great brand for any site or app that help you.  I only know about handmaids from Game of Thrones

? It’s worth it just knowing the ones from the Game of Thrones. I’ve read all the books, great reads. The HBO series is remarkably close to the books. Time to get on your horse George RR Martin and start writing again.  A bus I really don’t want to get on.  There are a couple people in this industry that ride it every day.  One bidder, 16 years old

193 USD I know a guy that drives this bus Getting some bids simply because all legal names seem to have value

710 USD That ended with a high price, but it is a good name. There are some names that people know they can sell for a profit as soon as it goes into their account. If I knew I could sell this tomorrow for at least $1k I’d buy them everyday. I don’t have confidence in my flipping skills, I’m working on it. The Interview today has a lot of good info. I’m gonna watch it again and take notes. Also I came across the $20 Challenge. Great information in there too and a totally different approach to actively selling domains. I want to try them both this month.  Super letter pattern.  5% would put this at $2500 IMO

? Missed It, Travis the Master or Lost and Forgotten prices might have it.  Probably better as a dot biz.  Listen to me.  Saying that a could be better

2 days left, at $25K   Most people are going to see ” Be Good ”   I see a typo of my common handle BGum

375 USD Big Giant Unsightly Desk  One of those names that isn’t going to get the bids because of the O but is a great acronym with good end user possibilities

861 USD Reminds me of office space. O facedsadoface

dsadsouthwestdc  Another one that is 15 years old with great letters.  The E is your discount code

414 USD South West Gang Electorate, It’s a political caucus  in SW DC.  Again, acronym.  Especially for Italian things

1,110 USD Looks British to me, Si Oi Or Pinyin and British, Si “to think” Oi an expression for getting attention. So maybe it means to wake up! and think. This was the rumored payment system for Apple.  Obviously didn’t happen.  Now somebody else can use it

315 USD Lots of uses, Maybe an internet gaming site or payment system for a group of sites that you can take back and forth.  Or an advertising network exchange system, you put your ad on my site and pay me an itoken, I can use my itokens to put my ads on someone else’s site in the network. It would be a fake currency for advertising credits.  Under $1000 at press time

1,575 USD Emergency Response Center. Nice name.  A few companies already own things called this so you’ll have to be a little careful. 561 visitors per month

1,025 USD Looks like trucking companies use the term as well as a bicycle company.  Has the poisonous numbers of 4 and 8 but its still a so it’s good

898 USD I think the 4’s are just late bloomers. A big sell off from the chinese doesn’t scare me, I’ll pick them up. They’re still making money on them. I don’t think you can compare the 6 n’s to anything else right now. The 5n’s took a few years to get going, We’re talking the end of Sept for the 6n’s. Obviously I agree that they’re the bottom of the barrel, but be careful not to discount pattern and sequence in that barrel. Plus if you can get them for next to nothing I think you’ll make money. It all depends on how you look at it, there’s no wrong way to eat a reese’s. If you’re going to buy LLNN.coms this is the kind you should want to own.  The double number

200 USD, Seems like it has good value left at that price. No bidders but maybe people that are smart enough to set up a BitCoin mining machine don’t really need tips

Maybe the Discovery Channel will buy this as a companion to Gold Rush. If domains don’t work out, maybe I’ll pack up and head to the Yukon, or Bering Strait.  I only see Oreo.  But I love Oreos.  Love em

1,080 USD, That’s a great brandable, you can almost sing it.  Looks like a even with a 4 is going to be worth over $500

610 USD Nive Sequence 4-3-2     It’s good to own 5N.coms.  Don’t seem to have settled quite yet.  And I don’t see it any time soon

Listed as Make Offer.  Shows that if you throw an 8 at the end that its still worth more than the 5Ns with less fours and zeros

898 USD   The 8 thing works on all numbers.  Double 3s and 8 move it closer to the middle of value

231 USD    A few bids on this   I was wrong about the number of CHiPs yesterday.  Still a ways to go but it is going.  It really doesn’t matter to me.  I don’t see a huge payback but it would be nice for them to be worth $15 or so soon.

?   Another one that is a little better in my opinion

266 USD Price shows it too.,

110 USD No idea why this one made it to this and the other one didn’t. Google Translate says SF means whether. Very timely name right now.  Good marketing name.  Tons of money in free

565 USD There’s gotta be a catch here somewhere, maybe there’s add on services, or they steal your identity.   One bidder at $12.   These are the names you’re going to see start selling first before the other million names that aren’t great

? This one seems like it’s a good pattern, Double letters, easy to remember.  One of the few 7N.coms you’ll see me list.  Only list it because it is at $12 and that might actually give you some flip room

206 USD There is a 7n movement, I checked 4cn and 22cn there were numerous 7n’s with decent bids. I think 22cn starts their auctions around 450 rmb which is around $68. I say I think because it’s all in Chinese so I really have no idea. I tried translating it, but it still didn’t make sense.  No bidders at $12.  Two easy to spell known words.  That’s always a good brand

163 USD Is this a cowboy with a 6 shooter?

Special Domain Shane ONLY Coupon…….. CODE IS DDCDS2015 Good 30% off Discount Domain Club to get the lowest renewal prices Godaddy offers (DDC)  I bet this gets a lot of Chinese inquiries.   They don’t mind the Xs at all

Unsold  Not very many bids for such a big industry.  Watched drone racing league special the other day.  It was awesome

Unsold  Absolutely terrible comparables. The names he listed aren’t even close except that they have 4 letters

At $343 Ends today   As good of a name as any for finding potential employees.  17 years old

Reserve not met  I like this one, Hiring sites seem to do well.

  1. Quick flipping works, it’s a great way to get cashflow and I’ve done it many times in the past. But you also need to consider the other side of the fence and diversify. A few months ago I listed a name on 2 main auction houses with a mid xxx reserve. It almost hit it both times but never did. Suddenly, shortly after I got an email from godaddy that my name sold at BIN for 7800. Just something to consider when you flip a name, there are many positives but also negatives. Diversify your strategy.
