The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 31st of March 2016
Good evening, or morning at this point. In the comments section yesterday Yoyoyo, common spelling, said that he didn’t think Ali was too excited about the sale price of Travel.Agency for $9999. I haven’t asked Ali about it, but it was going to be a harder sell with the $3500 renewal fee. You have to factor that in to the end price, extrapolated over numerous years.
It’s still to be determined is this play will work for the NTLD Registry’s, they’re basically ensuring that they get a residual cut of end user sales and essentially circumventing domainers. There’s all kinds of different plays here, you have the Premium extensions were all names are at a high price, the one time domain specific premium price, and the domain specific recurring premium price.
So let’s compare these models using Travel.Agency in a made up non scientific study, using a 10 year time frame.
If Ali sells the name for $9999 and it has a $10 renewal fee the 10 year cost of the name to the user is $10099. That seems like a really low price for such a good name.
Now to the $3500 recurring premium renewal. $9999 + $35000 = $44,999. The actual sales price for this name using this model is almost $50K for our 10 year time frame. That’s what the buyer or end user is paying.
Ali gets his $9999 minus whatever he paid, lets assume $3500, for a Gross profit of $6499 (assuming marketing costs), Ali is now out of the Travel Business. The Registry makes $38,500 over the 10 +1 years in our scenario.
I almost think it would be better to market these names to companies for the affiliate commission, rather than buying and selling them.
SevenPalms.com 18 years old. No bidders at $12. Upgrade name for several places according to the google results
338 USD Resort I bet, sounds like a resort name anyway.
CharmShop.com Those little add on charms seem to be hot. Thousands of add on charms to buy. Old ladies love them
538 USD “add on charms” I don’t know what that is. Are we talking “bling”
44134.com No bids at $25. The reason? It has a reserve. Reserved numerics don’t get much action
NoBackPain.com I’ve said it a hundred times. People will pay thousands to get rid of pain and they go straight to the Internet to try and find help
202 USD Hmmm I thought this would have more exact match search volume than it does, only 34/month
YellowSeed.com Love this brand. One bidder at $12
370 USD Good Brand and Cheaper than Corn.com
Cheap.cc Great to see a keyword .cc getting a great price
2,153 USD wtf? What Happened? Cheap means Monkey in pinyin.
KFXB.com A perfect example of a Chinese CHiP. 13 years ago. Was China even around 13 years ago
2,025 USD I believe they were building the Great Wall at that point. See, Trump’s on to something, 1.3 Billion people can’t be wrong. Speaking of which, I’m am not opposed to building a wall on our borders. I’m actually confused a bit, because I thought there was a wall on the border. Why they hell do they dig tunnels, if there’s no wall. Ever watch the Great Escape? Awesome book and movie, they built tunnels to get under a wall/fence.
Here’s the thing, whatever political persuasion you might subscribe to, you have to admit that not securing our borders can have dire consequences. Forget the labor issues or drugs or citizenship crap for a second, there are lots of people out there that want to blow us all up or enslave us. Not securing the borders is irresponsible and dangerous. If even 1 terrorist comes through our unsecured borders it’s one too many. Gitmo, is surrounded by Razor wire, watch towers, and a mine field. All of those things were there before it was a detention center, so the point was to keep people out not in. That place seems pretty secure and the only terrorists crossing the border there are handcuffed. Would a minefield be cheaper than a wall? Probably. I’m confident that the vast majority of people willing to cross a minefield with machinegun nests scattered about, are people that are coming here with one intention. To Kill us.
It’s not inhumanitarian, sorry migrant workers, get a visa, the sign says “minefield”. People don’t do things that will kill them unless they want to die, thus I think we should install minefields and not a wall.
UXXU.com The symmetry is going to give it an above average price
Mass.co A word AND a 4L. Thus the price
ClubFish.com Been there. It smells. No bidders. Probably because of the smell
401 USD, I thought this was a salmon fishing technique. Imagine standing waist deep in an Alaskan river as the salmon make their spawning run. You have no pole, no bait, just a bat. Happy Club fishing.

UXUH.com, 305 USD
SVWR.com, 354 USD
UGZU.com, 315 USD
UYUJ.com, 300 USD
UGZN.com, 315 USD
Nice to finally see some bottom boat LLLL.coms up for auction
TXGD.cc These have been going for $100 to $125 lately. I bought 100 or so since the renewal cost reduction. I am paying $100 in bulk of western letter CHiPs
NUUW.com Worst spelling of “New” I’ve seen all days

DMCK.net, 186 USD
MHNC.net, 171 USD
KJFH.net, 161 USD

PTMN.net 186 USD
Not going for what they used to but still selling every day
TheNameGenerator.com Tells you exactly what you’re going to get when you visit the site. That’s a good thing
NoBullshitZone.com I haven’t let BullS comment here in years so I guess officially this is. A few bidders
? No Bulls HIt Zone? Its a safe zone for Matador’s
888923.com Remember what I said about reserve. The price on this one is VERY low compared to value
ShareYourDream.org Not worth a ton of money but I do like the sentiment here. One bidder at $10
Equality.org One of the biggest challenges the world faces about the world’s different faces
WPD.net All comes down to the reserve
LeadExperts.com Solid name for an expert in Lead Generation. At $20 at press time
19 days left. The description talks about lead generation, I think you could use this name for lead abatement, as in Flint Michigan or paint. I actually thought Flint was a barren wasteland that had been abandoned years ago. I saw the M Moore Film about it when I was a kid. Of course there’s lead in the water, that place has been a shit hole for decades. There should be a sign at the borders that says, “no jobs, lots of vacant houses, old factories, and lead, enter at your own risk”
LLPS.com Great letters. I expect it to meet reserve
Has a BIN, I thought these were crappy letters? This is a triple bastard chip isn’t it?
1BB1.com Interesting name. No bidders
Reserve met at $200 5 hours left
