Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday March 13th

Mar 13 2017



To completely understand the Godaddy auctions and why the prices get to where they get, you have to understand the types of buyers you are competing against.  The first buyer is the one looking for domains with age, backlinks, and traffic. Names that help build a history for their current names.  They buy names that fit their category and buy them to link to their existing names.  Or they will actually rebuild them out and use the history.   Then there is your average domain investor looking to pick up names.  No explanation there.  Then there is Huge Domains and Buy Domains types who use an API and have programs set to buy a certain way.  And they buy in bulk. You can see the auto bidding if you pay attention.  They will run the price up and force you to pay a “fair” price for the name.  They don’t know who you are.  They are not there to make you pay more.  They are merely there to get domains at prices they predetermined.  And while much is predetermined there is no doubt there are API buyers out there that use the first bid as a marker.  As soon as a domain gets a bid it often hits it immediately.  You can wait until the end to bid or wait until it goes to closeout but its not going to matter.  Remember it’s an API and is quick.  There is no “catch them on a phone call and miss it” type scenarios.  Its computerized. Understanding your competitors is the first step to success.

On a different note, make sure to watch today’s DomainSherpa for some entertaining conversation.  Today’s hyphen talk was pretty funny.

And finally.  Take a look and tell me if you see anything that looks odd with Select.Auctions.  I look over auctions every single day and there is just no way that every auction in pre-Release can get 10-13 bids. Doesn’t feel natural. They do a lot of advertising but that still wouldn’t lead to such similarities in number of bidders.  Look at the names and tell me what you think. Maybe its just me and I’m just jealous of their success.   Here are today’s names.  Click for current price

Quote Of The Day:  “You’re under no obligation to be the same person you were 5 minutes ago -Alan Watts”

Domain Of The Day:

Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids    A very rare appearance of a on Godaddy.   Will cross $20K IMO    GotoMeeting helps make this one more valuable. First registered 20 years ago   Great letters.  Love the A because of “association”  and because the Chinese don’t like it    465,000 backlinks can’t be a bad thing  If you are going to buy LLNN or NNLL you want to stick to repeaters IMO.  The double 7 here   No bidders on this one either   Asian name Zu Ping     Means “mountains” , a language, and a nice    Lick him or Like him   Lots of liquidity in these CCC.coms    I’ll say over under on this of $320   Another really strong IMO.  Some good ones today if these are your thing    Chinese are going to take this one.  Just let them have it  Used to be a tech company specializing in “software and hardware development for cultural and commercial spaces”   The bids are for the backlinks and history    387,000 backlinks   Triple 6s will get this to triple digits   I’m more relaxed just typing the name out   Looks and sounds like a big company

Domains With One or No Bids Some age and the easiest logo ever A little less quality than the Spearmint Sounds like a startup or a new crypto coin. No bidders I think HGH grows in popularity with time. I don’t take it but won’t lie and say I’ve never looked in to it Sounds like a guarantee of something. Everyone likes guarantees Not a bad name for our industry for $12. No bids Start your mj research here. No bids Like left brain, but cheaper

Namejet Auction   Great letters worldwide.  Headed to China has been a good investment the last 3 years (this statement does not predict the future value of the name.  Taking my advice could lose you money.  Try and be a independently thinking, researching, person and make decisions based on your own thoughts)   Four figure name not that long ago   W for  $210 at press time  Good name for someone in our industry   33 bidders on this one  Las Vegas something something .  At $220   Let them help you find it   Venture Capital.    At $200   Met reserve.  A little money in medicine    Only 7 bidders on this one.  Digital names have kept their value.  Term has aged well  Reserve is under $50K so this may sell  Met reserve.  CVCV have performed amazingly this last 6 months  Nice name for a platform to help make money  Reminds me of a marketing slogan for a beauty or fitness company   I have a pretty good idea what this will be used for.  The weedmap of raves   Typo of News?    Not many cities this big come up for sale.  Reserve is met

    Looks like Select.Auctions has some loyal fans. I checked the bidders on randomly chosen names that end today.

    The below accounts seem to be in the loyal fan category. twotwo and markmon probably aren’t loyal fans, they use and API and auto bid anytime there’s a first bid I believe.

    Hey guys .. a few things ..

    First of all .. today is the 13th (not the 12th) .. I’m guessing Shane is superstitious with Monday the 13th (far worse than Friday the 13th for those that do Monday to Friday I’d guess .. lol)?

    I saw as well and thought you could use it to go through your fields faster to leave you more time for domaining! 😉

    Second .. I didn’t listen to today’s Sherpa yet .. but one of my favourite Sherpa quotes is from you when one of the other sherpa’s (not a regular I think) mentioned selling a double-hyphen-domain for at least high 5 figures … and you replied something like …
    “Double-hyphen? Like an equal sign?” … I just died laughing out walking my dog … he must have thought I lost my mind. Seriously .. the info on those podcasts is great .. but it’s moments like that one which make it gold! You guys really should start your own podcast as well .. do it every second week on the weeks there is no sherpa review! 😉

    Also .. I was actually going to start a discussion at NP about Select.Auctions at NJ. I’ve pretty much been sticking to GD as there is more than enough names there to take up all my free time .. but have had a few issues with them lately that inspired me to check out NJ .. and that very precise bidders range looked like total fraud to me. I read somewhere that sometimes you’ll see a domain with a bunch of $69 bidders so you’ll also bid without worry. Then all the other bids cancel at last minute leaving just you … which automatically assigns you as the winner (I think). If it looks like a fish and smells like a fish .. then something fishy is probably going on!? :-/

    Thanks again for your lists! 🙂

      Thanks Ategy. Glad you like my attempt at having a good time. I would start that discussion. It needs to happen. Namejet is a great place to buy names but something about those don’t feel right to me. Again, only because I do this for a living and go through list every day. Thanks for the comment
