Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday, Feb 4th, 2018

Feb 04 2018


I’ll give you some feedback about NamesCon from someone that didn’t go and didn’t get paid to promote the conference.  This is just my overall impression taken from the people that attended.

  1.  There was less attendance than the previous two years.  I knew that was going to be the case when NamesCon offered to give us 5 tickets to give away a week or so before the event.  Let me know that the numbers would be down
  2. There were still plenty of great conversations to be had.  There seemed to be a correlation between how many conferences you had been to and how good they thought the conference was.  But everyone I talked to says its was worth it just to see friends and there was at least one business meeting that made it worth it
  3.   The Tropicana rooms aren’t very good compared to other hotels.  The MGM seems to be the way to go.  The desire to support the conference is there but the quality of rooms isn’t
  4.  Uniregistry’s lack of a booth emptied the room.  With the gazebo, all the chairs, and the overall booth missing , the main room seemed empty
  5.  Monte Cahn needs an assistant.  The quality of domains in the auction was strong.  Picking what names are in the auction and having a second opinion on things would be helpful.   Another year that didn’t cater to the mix of people at the auction.
  6. Not one person I talked to mentioned Water Night and I forgot to ask.  I won’t judge since I’ve heard nothing but it didn’t make a top ten of  “How was NamesCon?” for anyone I talked to
  7.  Cyger is the new Rockstar.  His great work and non confrontational demeanor has made him the center of domain investing
  8.  The MMX/Hakkasan (sp?)  party is still too loud.  The real party was in the lounge again this year.  I heard the afterparty lasted until 4:30 am and moved back to the Tropicana until they closed the bar down
  9. Godaddy was obviously trying not to step on anyone’s toes.  It may have been owned by Godaddy but it certainly wasn’t being promoted as that way.  Probably a smart move if they wanted income. I will say I haven’t been able to get hold of a rep since NamesCon.  Not sure where they all went
  10. 9 out of 10 people I talked to skipped all talks except ones they had a direct link to.  Saying it bluntly, they didn’t draw.  Again, I wasn’t there so I don’t know the numbers but my short census said the talks were the same old same old plus crypto and not appealing.
  11. Like all conferences, it was what you made of it.  Those that wanted meetings had them.  Those that wanted to be more social passed on the meetings and just talked to other domainers.   I will say that people that flew from Europe or further all seemed to feel that it may no longer be worth the long flight but everyone else seemed to be coming back next year
  12. Josh and Travis said a lot of people came up to them and said they liked what they were doing and felt like part of the industry.  I imagine the conference made a lot of people feel that way.  And that’s the importance of a domain conference.  To bring us all together to mingle.  The rest is just details.

Here are today’s names. Click on the names for the latest price


Quote of the Day: “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe” -Muhammad Ali

Domain of the Day:  20 years old.  Finding some bids.  But then again it is a sweet name

Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction     1995 name.  Although with an age really doesn’t matter  No reserve.  Sounds like a whisky but could be anything.   4 bidders at press time   The best way is to sell stuff that tells you how to become rich   I still like the NNL.coms.  And they have been holding value    Good letters and the vowels make it cheaper   It’s a dot net but all school and universities still use them.  Still the most popular type of router.  6 bidders   Learn how to get a contract or a sponsor. Become a pro. No bidders  Bitcoin wallet in Spanish.  Officially “coin purse”  Best opening bid I’ve seen in a while.  Can’t believe owner didn’t take it and sent it to auction  Will be first in the phonebook

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids    &      Ideally I’d like to see ItalianTile but both of these are getting some action    People just love media names     1997 name.  dot com is built out   Sounds like something they would give out at a strip club   Casino names still doing well   I’d rather own discount toys but this has 51 bids so it’s still a good name  I don’t really like many plant names since I have so many.  This one I like  City in Pakistan   I definitely let my capital names go too cheap   The dash isn’t holding back the bidders and   These have the double L flow that people like to name their companies


Godaddy Names With One or No Bids No bids. 20 years old.   Not a bad brand for $12 but then again as soon as you put in a bid HUGE domains will run it to $181  $12 and 19 years old   Sounds like a clothing line. No bids  Security name.  Play on safe night No bids.  Have to protect your pets  Thought it sounded like a mystery book, looked it up.  It was  Pretty sure there are a few hat sellers in London that would want this one  Good blog name IMO…Fun and sexy.  Ok fun  A lot of things can be raw. Food, art, wine.  No bids    Actually a term I’ve heard quite a bit.  Might be hanging in the wrong crowds  Skateboarding still a thing? drop it in for instant coffee  it’s a dot net but college applications are increasing 5 fold each year (stats made up).  Getting harder and harder to get in to the best schools


Godaddy Names With Bids

All names chosen by me Shane, or Josh . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct. I hand choose my names but I am paid to make this list by the auction houses, individuals that are auctioning names, and Godaddy affiliate links. Keep that in mind and only buy names that YOU think are good

    Although I’ve never actually been .. I got the same impression from the pre-push .. lots of free passes everywhere for first timers.
    Still looking forward to going next year though .. need to save up some Craps money to play with you and Cyger! 🙂
    And speaking of Cyger .. there’s certainly something to be said for going out while on top .. of all the crap being flung all over the industry .. he certainly kept it classy … and more importantly .. when faced with an uncomfortable decision .. he usually did the right thing .. even if it meant hurting himself (/removing valuable content in order to avoid hurting newcomers).
    He’s still kicking around DNA giving good advice .. but in my few email interactions with him ths past year it was very clear he was a genuinely nice and helpful guy .. I really wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavours! 🙂
    I’m also really happy he let his baby go and sold Sherpa to MO .. I liked the first 2 shows .. and I think clear Tess really wants to keep it fun and informative … Goat Power !!! 🙂

    Thanks again to Shane and NamesCon for the ticket! I really had a great time meeting and talking with fellow domainers! The best part for me was chatting with Michael Cyger over beers! Cheers, Carl
