Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday August 11th

Aug 11 2017


It’s all about cashflow and patience.  The best money is made when everyone else is worried or paying attention to the “hot” product.  .  This has been a great year for my portfolio.  I have picked up some great one word and short domains over the last year. Everyone is playing bitcoin while I hunt for domains.  Names that used to sell are no longer selling leaving many domain investors with a portfolio full of junk and no valuable inventory.  I have some of that as well but most of my buys could be sold immediately the next day for 70% of the purchase price which is an indicator of a decent buy.  Have I sold very many?  Not really.  But enough to keep upgrading.  Fortunately I’m diversified and have good cash flow.  This blog and a few other sites are having a great year and keep the domain investment money flowing.  And I keep buying.  Could it be a mistake and I lose all my money.? Sure. But I got my money through my domain investing and Internet ventures so if I go out, it will be through reinvesting in what brought me to the dance.   There is no better way to define success in this industry than to make a profit and still have a better portfolio than when you started. And I think right now it is a great time to do just that.  Here are today’s names. Click for most recent price  

Quote of the Day:   If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” —African proverb

Domain of the Day:   Everyone loves a bargain.   Getting some good price action


Namejet Names at Auction Best on the Namejet board  Its a thing, just not sure the race organizers are willing to pay much.  Could flip for $300ish IMO  Because I want my TV in VGA   good patterns still get good prices but people aren’t buying them like they used to.  Which means bargains can flow through    Brandbucket has proven these double letter endings sell. And often for good money.  Deceiving   Could be a boy or a girl.  I work my gluteus pretty hard at the gym  My favorite name on the Namejet list. Parents pay a lot to make their kid semi good at some sport.  Only a few bidders   yes there is.  A lot of focus on Crypto   Right now the most popular canna soil is Fox Farms.  I sell a lot of it  Lean startup company  One of my favorite places.  Used to live there    Sounds like a company that will sell safety equipment  1998 domain.   Dot nets are at value right now IMO but only for development.  Tough to resell   I can see a jug of this at GNC

DropCatch Names at Auction   At $6K a climbing.  Will close today in the $7K would be my guess  The fact that the domain is up for auction says there probably won’t be a fyre festival 2  The triple 3 should do well.      It’s a CC but its weed. Weed overcomes all

 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Bitcoin miner name.   The Z makes it cryptoish    4200 backlinks.  500 monthly visits. 1997 name and 82 bids.  That enough?  1998 domain.  Good name for Online prop bets    If there is anything I want quickly its my bricks     How I met most of my dates.  Single friend of a friend.  Of course I actually wanted to date the friend   Great brand for mountain climbing.  I am going to bid on this one  A first name or just a Nate     Sounds like a startup   A southern garage or a startup   If this is what you do then this is what you want   Generic for Etsy    Kind of cool sounding.   And if its cheap and short, that’s usually good enough and   Doing pretty well for 6Ns with no eights or patterns.  Although the Chinese do like 365      Good letter are worth $500+ right now    Obvious use but this is one generic that I think you could build a brand around   Another that makes a solid, shorty brand   I would eat here.  I love both


Domains That I Like With One or No Bids Not the best but will still probably hit four figures regardless 1998 birthday. Very surprised this one has no bids. It won’t ed that well It’s where I get all my farm fresh beaver Online financing, crowd financing Sounds like a kids building toy For $12. Might be worth getting as a name for a tool that lets you scrape music

    “most of my buys could be sold immediately the next day for 70% of the purchase price which is an indicator of a decent buy”

    Trading bitcoin at 70% wouldn’t be decent. Great thing about crypto is there are no renewals!

    RE: “ – Brandbucket has proven these double letter endings sell.”

    I’d respectfully disagree with you on that. BrandBucket has proven nothing of the sort. I’m willing to bet that their turnover for this class of “domainn” is well under 1%. I’m also willing to bet that they likely make more money from the $10 submission fees on these double letter domains than they do on commissions of actual sales. so yeah sure .. they are fantastic for brandbucket .. but certainly not for domainers.

    That being said .. if you’re going to do exxtra letterrs, then is the one to get (although I’d rather “” if I had the choice because at least it’s pronounceable). But I reallyy don’tt likee 99.9% of extra letterr domains .. and I think it’s an illusion that they sell, because while some do sell, I’m willing to put money that the turnover % is vastly lower than average .com’s (and I’m not even talking about the obviously premium equivalents like “”, I’m just talking about average 2-word .coms or actual pronounceable made-up word brandables).

      Or you could look at it from my side. I would have thought 0 sell. So the fact that ANY sell on Brandbucket proves that Brandbucket does move names that nobody else would. But nobody should buy a lot of these names.
      If you are in the brand name domain game and not making enough to cover renewals and replacement of names then you should find a different strategy or move to another investment platform. If you are taking your outside money and having to pump in cash every month then you better have just started. Otherwise domains can be a money pit.

        Well .. admittedly they might not be at 0% .. but I’m thinking there is likely a colossal gap between what the actual % likely is, and the % it would need to be for the average extra letterr domain to even break even.
        Does brandbucket publicly breakdown their sales and inventory numbers to the sub-type like “doubled extra letter”? I’m curious …

    Just curious if these other sites are public knowledge or not (not sure if you ever mentioned them here in the past). Curious to know what they are?

      I have a few public and a few partnerships I don’t share. I have some small sites that make a few hundred a month each but have a handful so it adds up.,, Most I haven’t updated in a while but they still do well. I have sites like I haven’t updated in forever and it still brings in some revenue. And I still have some residuals on a few site sales from years past
