Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday March 5th, 2018

If you run the daily domain auctions you are seeing something pretty obvious. There are less quality names than ever coming through.  And private name sales are way down as well.  You take away 5 main sellers and there would be virtually nothing private up for auction.  That leaves the names that do come through going for much higher than they would otherwise.  Which would lead you to one question. If that’s the case why is it not a good time to auction some names?

In my opinion it is.  The reason people haven’t is twofold.  One, they think the cost of acquiring a similar name is going to be higher than what they will make auctioning a name.  That is probably true.  Trying to buy a name privately right now is very tough.  Domain investors have been pounding the owners of quality names for several years now.  There are very few virgin names out there that haven’t already been contacted dozens of times.  And what’s the point of purchasing the same type of name at auction as you just sold for the same price.  Two, people pay less for private auctions than they do expiry.  It makes zero sense to me but its a real fact.  Buyers feel like a private name has been pushed to everyone on the Internet and the only reason its up for auction is nobody wanted it.  In almost every case that is absolutely not true.  But its human nature to not want someone’s leftovers.

All that being said, I can’t think of a better time to put you name up for auction.  Especially at Namejet.  There’s almost no inventory right now and if your name is decent at all it will get more attention that it would have had in the last few years.  Add to that they are looking for inventory. So if you have some names I can’t see them turning many people down.  I haven’t talked to Namejet about any of this.  This is the opinion of a guy that runs inventory every single day.  I look at it as much as anyone in the industry.

So if all this is true then why haven’t I put any names up for auction?  The answer is simple. I haven’t needed the money and I’ve been too lazy to put together a list.   That may change soon.  I have a few names I want to buy and if I don’t sell a few names privately then I will raise some cash in the auctions.  Hopefully I can break that record of Here are today’s names.    Click on them for current price

Domain of the Day:   One of the better coin names this week.  Perfect coin news name. At $100 at press time

Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   Don’t see a lot of two letter .io.  My opinion only but I think they go up from here   Bright names seem to always sell.   Under $300 would be a good buy in my opinion  As long as online casinos have big affiliate programs and gamblers lose, casino names are gold  Nice name for an email tool.  Ninja makes it sound like it can do a lot of tasks   3 bidders.   Acne treatment is a good online revenue generator for a lot of people  1998 gambling name with no bidders    We still doing “ster” names?  Crypto Coin something something

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  1997 name.  Definitely a play on Sun Tzu’s the Art of War. One of the most read books of all time  Don’t love the letter but the Chinese do.  Billions of people trump me   Same here.  Even worse letters so probably a higher price   and they keep coming  Getting outside your box and comfort zone is the hot self help talk the last decade.  Nothing’s really changed just different terminology  Top name on the board for most  Big money likes ocean view and mountain view. 1998 name  Versatile name and we all know people like to use Jet in the name.  And for one company Jet is all they use  Big enough to overcome the .net   53 bids think this isn’t a SnapChat name, or that they will want it   Same here with the .org   First time I saw it I though it had no bids and I got super excited.  Realized I had looked at the wrong column. Nice name  Just what we all need.  To be judged socially.  But it has good value as a domain  22 bidders at at $400 at press time.  I give it an over under of $780   Don’t be scared of the 4 when you have a double 9 behind it

Godaddy Names With No Bids  1997 name.  Not sure if people still trade movies but still has value as a forum or movie site  Everyone is trying to create a uniqueness to their coffee.  This is a nice brand for exactly that  In college sports its what they call the dining hall.   Good name for a nutritional site.  No bids at $12    The money is in the accessories and the add ons Sounds techy.   You’d do well to get this for $20 or under IMO  A CHiP dot net so it continues to have value Not a ton of value but fun name.  My nickname in college.   A vault AND a locker.  Only one bidder  Fish oil is great for the heart. Getting pure oil has been the hard part   Great keyword.  Can overcome the alt tld  Doesn’t mean you have to sell online.  This is a solid name for an online presence  Godaddy values this at $1200 which makes me think this might actually be a real thing  The plural made it into a product site but still works for me.  The literally are working for me out the window  The keyword is big but the .ws makes everything smell like shit. Might be worth a shot  Not a huge value here but would be cool to have a site that you can find out where and how to get a film permit for wherever you are

  1. Good point actually.
    Does namejet let anyone sell now or do you still need to get accepted or however they do it.

    I’ve got 2 I’d like to put in.


    1. Still required to get accepted, and I’m pretty sure that they have a 15 name minimum in place. I would imagine they would make exceptions if the name was good enough, but I don’t know that for sure.

  2. Thanks for your insight on listing at NJ at this point. Your timing is perfect. Ive had some decent sales there past couple of months and my listings have just ended last week. I should have gotten a list in this weekend but i will use one of the same excuses as yours, had a lazy weekend. Lol Trying to fight off bronchitis as well so that doesnt help too much.

    But i will take your words here into account and make sure i get off my butt and enter some more domains now that you are thinking inventory has dried up recently. More eyes on our domains are always a very good thing.

    Thanks for the heads up Shane.
