Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday January 8th, 2018

Since the beginning of time people have been trying to create value.  Things that weren’t necessary for everyday use but were favored by the crowd.   Often favored only because people of influence said they were worth owning. In domains, every time a big company spends a good amount of money on a domain they are adding value to similar domains.  It’s why its so important to have as many sales as possible public.  It is our version of influencers showing the world what is worth spending money on.

Domains have a purpose.  I don’t need to go into that.  But they can have value above and beyond the economics behind owning one domain versus another.  Most companies spend lots of money trying to convince you their product is worth more than its functional purpose.  Clothing is a perfect example.  A piece of clothing with more material, harder to get material, and more skill in its crafting, all go into making it more expensive.  But that’s only half of it.  The label on the outside is the other.  That’s where the crowd comes in.  You can get a walmart sweashirt for $6.87.  You get one with SUPREME sowed into it and you’ll pay from $100 to $600.  Same material different label.   Owning a SUPREME sweatshirts shows you have money.  Or at least enough money to own one.  The key is to buy domains that are permanently SUPREME domains.

Right now SUPREME domains are LL, and one word dot coms.   You own one of these and you have money.  People are buying them because they are wanted. They have the highest perceived value.   The value has risen way above functional advantage.  That will always be the case because they are such good quality and so rare.  Crypto names have entered this coveted area temporarily (could be permanent) .  Numbers have been there for a while.

The goal of most domainers is to eventually own SUPREME domains.  Flipping and turning domains and building up the portfolio.  With the end goal to make as much money as you can.   The great thing about the SUPREME domains is unlike SUPREME clothing, they will continue to go up in value and are not a fad.  Another line of clothing will take over as the hot style.  In domains, we merely add a new class to the coveted as dot coms become more scarce.

I reread the above and BORING.  Don’t know what I was trying to prove.  Other than value is perception which I have said several times.  Lets talk about my Africa trip.  I have been getting all my shots. Judging by all the medicine I have the best chance of getting Hepatitis A and B, yellow fever, dysentery, typhoid, and malaria.  I’m hoping to avoid getting any of them but I told them to Russian Roulette me and leave one of those out and let me try and not get it.  I am also bringing a jar of peanut butter in case.  It’s served me well traveling to areas where I didn’t have a ton of food options.  I am staying in a village, not a hotel. I think Braden and Lisa’s African travels had a few more food options.  Roll Tide Roll:  Here are today’s names at auction today.  Click for current price
