Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday May 14th , 2018

95% of all domain investors are just straight up gambling.  No more evident than the recent .app buys.  People like Bill Kara and Michael Berkens have enough experience selling names to know which names to spend money on.  Plus they have the cash to take the risk.  So many of these other registrations make no sense to me.  If I were to try and search for a good .app it wouldn’t be in the top 10,000.   But its not limited to .app

Every day I get people emailing me to ask me to promote a name on this list.  30-40% of I can’t even take their money because it has exactly zero percent chance of selling at auction and spending $10 on it makes no sense.   I always respond by telling them to fake buy.  Read the list every day.  Read Travis’ list of domain auction results, and get a feel of what kind of names sell and for how much.   Also read Ron Jackson’s weekly sales results (although ours has a lot more weekly results).

The problem is almost all of them come back with a one off response.  OK I have been following and I have a good one.  I saw sold for $2K (made up) and I have so it should sell for $100 right?  They just don’t get what is equal or similar.  It’s hard to teach similar.   Because all domain are unique.  It’s the hardest part of this domain game. Knowing what is valuable.   I think DNAcademy does as good of a job as anywhere on the net.  That and Sherpa.

The hope is that people quit throwing darts.   Buying hundreds hoping for a few good sales.  It just doesn’t work now.  It did back in the parking day or when good names were plentiful.  Now the darts are hitting a shitty board.

Here are today’s domains.  Click to see the latest price

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  1997 birthday.  Almost everyone in the US at some point has had an aquarium at some point.  I always won mine at the school fair   Used to be a HUGE website back in the day.    The history has the bidding into 4 figures   413,000 backlinks  Sounds like an upcoming autobiography   5L brand with a few bids.   439 visit per month     With the prices of homes in Cali you can justify some good marketing expenditures on domains  Love seeing the LLN do well. I’m about to sell a few to raise some cash   If you have any left over send them my way  Instead of a think tank you have a think bucket


Godaddy Names With One or NO Bids  Close to meeting reserve. Managing risk is part of almost all businesses Kyle might want to pay a few hundred dollars for this one Not much value but sounds like an app name  Lending has been a part of society since the begging of time.  We just get more creative on how we lend it and how its paid back  “There’s a monster on your left!!!!”   “what?”   “Nevermind”   Cannabis ointments have and will be widely used for pain relief  Nice cloud/backup name with no bidders at $12  Surprised this raw food name doesn’t have a bid   Reveal your newest app or build a new drop catcher for .app.  No bidders

  1. I’d be curious to see some of the names being submitted. I submitted one months ago, but didn’t get any response – it must have been awful LOL

    1. My apologies Tom. I miss emails some times because the spam that comes through. Please send another any time. It’s on the house. Unless its terrible 🙂

      1. Haha I’m thinking it may have been because I don’t even remember the name myself.

    2. If you don’t hear from Shane, feel free to send it to me as well. I can usually reach him.

  2. remains the one inspiration here to register .app
