The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 4th and 5th of April 2016
One of the LLLL.net’s below has been sold at auction 5 times in the last 7 years. Most of those sales occurred on the same date different year. This happens a lot as I pull the prices, I find numerous sales on some names, year after year as they go through the expiring process. The names are decent and usually go for a few hundred dollars when they sell. Godaddy is making a killing of these names, it’s like a cash cow just waiting to be milked.
I bring this up because it’s a great example of why I could care less about the current creation date. I think that age can be a good metric that makes finding valuable names easier, but that’s it. The only difference between expired godaddy names and names that make it to Pending Delete and drop, is the expiring auction process that preserves the original whois creation date. If the name I mentioned earlier had been at some other registrar without an expiring auction is would have dropped 4 times in the last 7 years.
The biggest thing I gain from this concept is knowing that there are tons of good names that are expiring or dropping with recent creation dates. The problem is finding them and sorting through all the crap. We’re talking a few thousand names on a daily com pending delete list before 2006. On the tomorrow’s drop list, there’s just over 4k names dropping that were created before 2006 out of 86k names. Almost 60K of the names dropping have a creation date in the last two years. Remember this is current creation date, unlike the names that expire at Godaddy, or any of the other registrars that have an expiring auction process, the age resets when these drop. Some names, like the example I gave from godaddy expire year after year but never actually drop.
So I don’t think they’re better names, they’re just easier to find.
