Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday May 5th

There is nothing worse than getting an incredible offer on a name that you already sold.  I buy a lot of lawn care and plant related domains.  Because there are so many lawncare companies in the US, there is high demand for the most popular names. There can be hundreds with exactly the same name. One of my customers came in and I remember I actually owned the dot com of his name.  I stupidly told him I had the name and would give it to him since he was a customer.  I didn’t actually give it to him but I only charged him what I paid at auction.  While I was doing it I had second thoughts. I realized I had made a mistake because there were a lot of companies that shared the name.  And it happened during a little casual conversation.  He didn’t ask, I gave.

My thoughts were right.  He never changed the DNS and I got an offer for $1000 on the domain. I countered with $15,000 thinking that I could easily buy the name back from him and make a little money at that price. They countered with a price very close to $15,000.  I called the guy and told him I could get him $10,000 for the name and was almost positive he would be excited.  Nope.  He said he wouldn’t sell it for under $50,000.  He had big plans to sell the company and he thought the domain name was a big part.  He isn’t wrong and I learned a big lesson.  Don’t give away assets.  Give away your time but not your assets.  Here are today’s names.    Click for Current Price.  And Happy Cinco de Mayo to all my Mexican friends.

Domain Of The Day: Even better than the 9 name    Price is crushing it

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   You know I’m all over this one.  1995 name   Used to be a real airline.  And buyers LOVE old airline names  Big enough keywords that the hypen still has four figure value   Ditto   Great letters.   Vowels smowels   My OM .   or  Something something of something.  16 years old   Is an animal, was a an live video app    Not sure what you would do with it. But I’ve had one before so that makes me an expert here   Four figures and climbing   Some very good LLLL.coms today.  Been a little lacking lately on GD   All about the customer.  16 years old    Who you call to find the GymRat   I like the name.  Just not sure of the use  i.e. who would use it  Haven’t heard the term poon in decades. Brining it back for the VR   Radio fail.  But still a pretty good brand

Domains That I Like With One or No Bids No bids. Decent aged brand. 18 years old Two things people love No much value but sure sounds like a successful business 1999 domain. I like Country AND Western Pretty solid gardening name. And I know garden names Good marketing name for a home builder No bids. Maybe you all will like this one Although I don’t think the domain is going to make anyone feel any safer There is money in double letter lawn and lawncare names. But don’t buy them because I said so. My best offers are on names I gave away 5L for $12 Tiny houses are hot. Can’t think of a better name for someone in this business Two known good brand words. Sounds Native American Learn quicker I can see this as a canna store name. I think it hits $100 plus….now

Namejet Auction    Doesn’t get much better than this    CN for China.  Also where the name will probably go  Every state has mandatory locating of power, electrical, water and cable.  Big business for the people that are paid to do it   A bit boring but obvious use  Sounds like an official news site. Put it on Google news feed and I guarantee people will never know the difference between yours and The Globe   Closes today but nobody really seems to want this one

Fish.House    Renewal is only 22 euro.  No bids.  I actually like this one

  1. Hi Shane,
    Recent Reader and First Time Commentator.

    Your site is a must read everyday. I come for the sage commentary and stay for the domain expertise.

    As you and I are busy family and working men, who do our best to balance living and loving life, I am very appreciative of your insights that you share with your domain colleagues everyday.

    I reside on the west coast mirroring the same. That is why your blog resonates with me, and I am sure, many many others!

    Today’s advice: “Give away your time but not your assets,” is clearly on point, as I have been guilty of same.

    However, don’t kick yourself too hard, because if you didn’t care for your customer(s) and people in general, you wouldn’t have been concerned enough to help improve their lot. My opinion is not intended as “touchy feely”, rather an observation that someone gives away assets for the same reason as they donate their time, because they care and have a good (heart) perspective on life.

    Moving on, I loved today’s Quote of the day as well. “The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel -Steve Furkick”

    That is one of those quotes that definitely make you go hmm (or, if you may).

    Keep up the good work! And know this, that although the responses to your entries sometimes may be silent, your audience is here reading, ruminating, and appreciating their existence.

    Finally, If you are ever in Silicon Valley, let me know. A meal or a beverage of your liking is on me. It is the least I can do for what you share with everyone. Heck, I would even let you have an asset … (one that I may even kick myself about later, until I realized it was an independent event of Good Karma to do and pay it back!)

    Best regards,
