Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday, December 15th, 2017

I think my favorite part of being in this industry is not the extra money I’ve made, not the skills I’ve learned, but the people I’ve met.  Over the last 10 years I’ve met some people I really consider friends.  People that I met only because of domaining.  They live all over the world but when I seen them in person its like they have lived next door.  I know their kids, their wives, and their hobbies.  Any one of them I would have no trouble traveling with.  That’s the real test of a person.  It’s called the O’Hare test.  Could you sit with that person at the airport for 8 hours?  These guys I could.

I could because I love hearing their stories.  The name purchases and sales.  The stories of what they bought and how they bought it.  Guys that have done huge things in this industry and have dwarfed anything I’ve done yet they still call me on the way somewhere because they have a half hour to kill in the car.  They know I love good conversation and can fill a half hour easy.  I in return get to hear their journey.  Because that’s what this is all about, the journey.   When its all said and done we’re only going to have two things.  Money and stories.

People like to tell the success stories but the fuck ups are just as interesting.  The success of Rick Schwartz is great but I thought the trying to lease domains was even greater.  Here’s a guy who makes tens of millions of dollars on pure grit, hard work, and patience, yet had this idea about leasing that everyone said would never work.  But successful people are successful because they stick to their guns.  They got success by following their ideas through. Some work, some don’t.  The leasing story of Rick is what this journey is all about.  We are going to win more than we are going to lose and when its all over we hope we have a little cash and can laugh about the stupid stuff we tried.   Talking to my domain friends I get to hear those stories daily

On a side note, my damn T key is going out on my lapop.    Here are today’s names. They don’t work if you don’t click on them


Quote of the Day:    “It’s always funny until someone gets hurt. Then it’s just hilarious”     -Bill Hicks

Domain of the Day:    No bids.  Good is always a nice word to start your brand with

Portfolio of the Day: Freshly listed 117 Crypto names.  The hottest type of domain on the market

Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction  Going to sell because its met reserve.  Great name  Not going to be a team name but still a popular pet   Some people would think that PETA people are.  I’m thinking more droids here   High priced escorts are back.  9 bidders  Your domain portfolio name.  Upgrade your name to a smarter one.  No bids  Women get all the attention.   Beauty products for men are way up.  Primarily because of the beard craze  Sounds like the name of a business website or book.  One bid    360 means completely     Have to admit you won’t forget the name or what the name is about   Talked about vertical video yesterday and how it was the format for mobile.  Learn how to make the best content in that format here  Odd form of the word but people will still remember it.  Imagine it would be an eco type company eventually.  Maybe   Like the name but reserve is not a bargain.  Fair but not a bargain  Pretty big category for such a little old

🐦.ws    The bird looks different on different devices but its still always a bird

🍧    Same with this ice cream   I’ll give it a solid B+   I may have capitalized it wrong but that’s what I see  As long as the reserve is closer to the left side of the range this is a good one  The same thing with this one

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  Big boy name.  Age and   Pretty sounding name.  1996 birthday    Upgrade name for a few things.  Also some medical uses for the name   Great letters.  A will give it a discount  Easy to remember but not sure what it means.  What they call Apple fans. Seriously, look it up   A lot of uses for this one and most likely there will be a .mom    Getting lots of bids.  Reminds me of that movie with Justin Timberlake where time is money and when you run out you die.  Thought it was a pretty good movie and    The two best crypto names on the GD board today  and   Two 6Ns that end in double 8s.  These continue to have value     Crytpo.  Although I doubt they will call the new one New    It does sound like a rapper or a bad guy in a Superman comic but I still like it.  Vape Nation    Not dependent on the pain but the drugs to make it go away  Where the real money is.  Juicing the bud for the edibles     Plenty of uses for this one.   Farmers market, canna market, organic market  An important part of a successful product’s life cycle

Godaddy Names With One or No Bids  The kind of name I have had great success buying and some success selling  Worth buying just for the arguments of Lev ar or Lee var  What they call a trashy, fast read book.  No bids. Some age  Plenty of money in the travel space  Sugar is bad in food, great in branding  They really are.  We’re all trying this domain thing.  Good blog name for $20  Another nice brand for $12  135,000 backlinks and 450 visits a month for this crazy name  Sounds like a hat and shoe site.  GD thinks its value is $2600

Godaddy Names With Bids

ll names chosen by me Shane, or Josh . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct. I hand choose my names but I am paid to make this list by the auction houses, individuals that are auctioning names, and Godaddy affiliate links. Keep that in mind and only buy names that YOU think are good

  1. That big boy name is at $5700 now. Imagine buying that and actually building it out right. I would love to see a domainer grab that one domain and then actually buckle down, get to work, then hear the story of how much they made. I am guessing it will hit 13k-ish. Prob worth more though.
    I will be bidding on a name in your list – not telling which one. 🙂
    The stories of the people we meet here in domaining are pretty awesome. Was talking to a dot tv domainer friend of 10 years + last night and he always inspires me. Made good money in domaining so far, invested in bitcoin a couple years ago. He is done working now. He is set for life. We started out the same. He can build out his best domain, buy a coffee/doughnut franchise, or just sleep and smoke pot, whatever he wants.
    These stories never make me jealous. I am always happy for people when they work hard and become successful. It inspires me. It gives me motivation.
    Cool thing about this business is it encompasses all walks of life. All interests.
    I do love the F-up stories as well. Everything is not always happy, sunshine and bunnies. Sometimes we may be able to learn from someone that took a route we were thinking about taking and failed. If we listen and learn it can save us some heartache and money.
    So thanks Domain King, and Shane and any other domainers who have done this, for not always sharing that only those 100x ROI Sales. Thanks for being humble enough to share the F-ups with us!
    This is for Ategy in Canada. Nobody else read this since it is just babble…
    So, I was out and about yesterday and grabbed my Iced Mocha Coffee at BK. On our drive thru boards here in Chicago at BK, the 16 different meal packages were titled “MEALS”. There is a McD’s a block away, so I had to pass that drive thru menu board just because of our conversation and looked at the title of their packaged meals as well and theirs were titled “Extra Value Meals”.

    1. lol .. yeah .. I ended up going to McD’s with my mom the other night after our exchanges! 🙂
      I think the reason why they call it Trio here is because “Trio” also works in French .. I’m not even sure if it officially a French word .. but it’s a term often used because of Hockey .. the forward line is usually referred to as a Trio. In terms of Marketing in Montreal .. the best terms are the ones that work in both languages and pass some of the silly language laws we have here when it comes to advertising and commerce. Sometimes we don’t realise that something is jut local .. I’m curious what they are called in the rest of Canada. And now that I think of it … I’m curious if there is any reference to “meals” in English here? McDonald’s is one of those restaurants where you never truly look at the menu in detail .. you always know what you want before you go!
      PS .. did you end up getting the name you wanted?

  2. Yeah, It is pretty cool the different terminology we learn in our domaining. Many things translate completely differently across borders. One of my first lessons on that was the term “Holiday”. I have only known that as a day off here in the USA because of a religious, national, or cultural day whereas in the UK they use the term Holiday as vacation. The UK terminology places 100x more value in that word and I would have probably never known that otherwise.

    I didn’t get the name I wanted yesterday. I did get the name I wanted today though 🙂
