Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday May 15th

May 15 2017

A great comment the other day at one of the Silk Road domain blogs said “the sherpas on DomainSherpa.com would say aperfectlanding.com sucks Drop that name fast stop throwing your money away start over. BUT Mike Mann would sell aperfectlanding.com for $100,000”    First of all you are missing all the information about Mike Mann and his domains. You hear what he wants you to hear and what his lackeys put out there.  He HAS to get those prices to think about breaking even.  Don’t get me wrong.  I think he will end up doing very very well. He has been doing it a while and has a lot of great names.  Despite those names there have been financial problems.   I’ve never heard of financial problems from Berkens, Schilling, Schwartz, Reyberry brothers.  I know, I know, personal reasons.   All I am saying is he isn’t killing it despite being in this a long time and making lots of money.

Back to the quote.  Would I tell you to drop it?  No.  I would throw it into the numbers game portfolio just like Mann does.  I have a section of my portfolio like that too.  But I didn’t have SEO and HappyBirthday.com from back in the day to cashflow my waiting names like him.  I do now so I have started building a brandable, BIN portfolio.  Want to follow his lead?  Do it. I challenge you.  To the point I’m pretty sure you can’t buy 300 names and publicly track purchases and sales and show a profit for 2 years in a row.  Ali can.  Josh can.  A few others can.  Most can’t.   They just talk and comment in the blogs and talk about the sales.  Leaving the important details in the closet.

Here are today’s names. Click for most recent price

SEDO Auctions

Start-Up.com  Has a hyphen but that only drops it from 6 or 7 figures down to four or five

YZ.net   Two letter dot nets have been pretty rare.  Will be interesting to see what this closes at

Inheritance.com   Tax or estate planning dream name

 

Namejet Auction

RestoreCredit.com  There is a reason why the CPC on credit repair and restoration is so high.  People pay a lot to have it done .   Even Uniregistry bid $3500 for this one which tells you the value

HostingProgram.com     I see more hosting families and kids from other countries than I do web hosting.  No bidders

BankingInstitute.com    12 bidders on this financial name.

CENO.com  Getting all the action because its a CVCV.   103 bidders and five figures

PHPH.com  ABAB.  One of the most desired patterns.  Just not as desired as it was a year ago

SellingPrice.com  So generic I don’t know what I would do with it.  But memorable

EndurancePills.com  If only.  Although they may mean sexual endurance not athletic

Longer.net   This would work as well

WeedGame.com   Somebody is going to like this one.  Just because of weed

PRN.net   Great letters.  5% of the dot com puts this in the $2K range IMO

GlobalVegan.com   Nope.  Don’t even say it

778.co  No value and the bidding shows it

    ” To the point I’m pretty sure you can’t buy 300 names and publicly track purchases and sales and show a profit for 2 years in a row. ”

    Geez .. I’ve only recently started building my portfolio … been a very bad boy and procrastinated making a marketplace etc .. but I seriously hope I’ll be turning a profit sooner than later. Maybe not on my first 300 names (well maybe) .. but almost certainly on my last 300! lol

    Anyhow .. I would never buy “aperfectlanding.com” because I don’t think it’s worth the risk to reward … there are times when a garbage domain name will sell before a great one .. there’s a luck / random timing factor to domaining that sometimes seems to defy if you look at all the sales published .. but if you stretch out probabilities I’d think those longshots are certainly going to pop-up from time to time … and most certainly will seem to happen more for the big boys .. but that’s only because they have a kazillion domains and their domains and market places have much better exposure .. in fact on would argue that it would be weird if they didn’t make such sales from time to time.

    Now if only I’d get one! 😉

      .. there’s a luck / random timing factor to domaining that sometimes seems to defy **REASON** if you look at all the sales published

    Loved the read, and i agree 100% to that. He has invested for the future but i’d rather live a happy, and not under financial pressure everyday than making up for all the renewals every year.

    Definitely a different strategy but domainers only with millions of dollars can do that. I’ve been in domaining for over 15 years now (hobby for me) and only invested in names that either come really well off the tongue + have some sort of brand value to it.

    On the list, i really like Funbrellas as a brandable, i can foresee a possibility of a cool product being built on it!

    On a different note, my biggest regret was selling eVirtual .com last year for a couple of grand on Namejet, definitely could have got higher seeing the craze now, had i held it. But that is what domaining or anything you invest or do in life is about, you learn from the mistakes you make.

    Shane,
    If Mike Mann (who I have tremendous respect for) and Josh both were given $100K and one year to make as much $$$ as they could in domain names IMO Josh would !@#$%* him. Just head to head no employees etc. They would be allowed to only buy drops and hand reg domains. How about Namescon 2018 in Las Vegas. Just think of all the publicity this industry would get. It would be a good thing for everyone.
    Cheers

      I’d agree as well … HOWEVER … a few very important points …

      1) Josh would likely win because he works harder. He puts in more more hours list-surfing to find the same quality domains that Mann and other big names did when they build up their portfolios ages ago.

      2) Mann and other big domainers don’t need to work (as hard as us) given the portfolios they already have. He likely makes a very good living and very likely makes a good profit. If he didn’t then he’s very likely simply just drop the weakest portions of his portfolio.

      3) His past hard work has built up his reputation and Rolodex of key industry contacts which also has a huge effect on both buying cheaper and selling higher.
