Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday January 14th, 2018

Jan 14 2018

It has been wonderful to hear all the success of my domain investing friends over the last year.  People in this industry have made their money based on the Internet so its no surprise that many bought crypto, crypto and blockchain names as well.  Guys like Mike Sallese were way ahead and built nice portfolios of crypto names while they could be hand regged or purchased cheap.  Now he’s reaping the rewards.  There are several in our industry that have made 10 million plus.  Some of that money absolutely will come back into domains.  Drew Rosener is an example of that.  There are many more that are buying domains using crypto profits  you just are hearing news about it.

For those that think this will all crumble and think that domain investors are going to lose their money.  Too late.  Almost everyone I have talked to, including myself, have taken a lot of money off the table.  They can lose money they have now but they will be very very ahead of where they started.  Ahead of everyone that didn’t buy crypto names and crypto itself.  I get emails from people that weren’t having good success in domaining now selling names for thousands. Many of the people asking for advice have actually become more knowledgeable than me in crypto names since they are selling so many.   And this is all good.  We make money selling domains and we really don’t care what turns certain domains into winners.  And many of these new winners are in new hands and new blood.  We need some new blood and new success.  Getting kind of boring around here.  Here are today’s names.  Click for most recent price

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids

CryptoNames:  The Lifeblood  Without the S you could add $1000 bucks or more


The Rest    Can only imagine how much went for.   1996 birthday   A defunct film festival that ran for 10 years.  Born in 1996   Great name for a site that does exactly this.  Easy build out.  OK maybe not easy   Prayer is multi spiritual.  That’s why its four figures and rising  Great letters, great  Over under is $1200 IMO  Could add a zero or more if you took off the S  These are the types of names that sell but are odd forms of words.  I don’t touch them but many do   Media names always sell and this is better than many hat have sold for more  Love the rhyming here  I have a lot of these “cute” names. Some times they sell  The A gives you a discount code   Ask Zyppah if there is any money in snoring relief    Might as well add this one too it    26 bids and a $10.33 CPC  I could have used a little but I’ll let it slide since I’m so old.  Lots of people get it done though    Newest movie studio   This would have gone for $300 plus back in the day.  18 months ago

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

    I think the danger to domains with crypto is not that people go broke with crypto .. but more that the small profits and harder work of domaining simply are less interesting to them. With the only real exception being names wholesaling over 5 figures.
    I still think Bitcoin and other abstract crypto with no actual connected base value are going to take a hit at some point as a result of governments crackdowns like China and Korea. But at the same time .. the fundamental technology isn’t going away and crypto technology in General and strangely enough is only going to get bigger after Governments do put a foot down and are forced to impose standards/rules/guidelines/whatever.
    I’m biased though .. because I have the best crypto domain ever with CryptoDisco! 🙂

      That’s not a danger, that’s how business works. Money rotates in and out of investments. Domain investors by nature seek to make profit on the Internet. We will go anywhere to find that profit. Many have rotated out of domains. Take advantage of that. They are your competitors at the auctions and drops. I haven’t seen any decline in attention to the names I’m trying to buy. The opposite. They are more expensive than ever

        Yup .. I guess I should have been a little more specific .. I meant that where the danger lies in domains is the wholesale level of sub 5 figure domains. When I first started looking into being more serious in domaining (late 2016) it seems there was much more activity on the low to mid-range domains (nice 2 word .com’s and strong single word ngTLD’s) .. seems to me this market is now softer .. although kinda hard to compare since I wasn’t actively taking notes more than a year ago. Maybe what I noticed was just a coincidental short blip at the same time I started?
        The flip side definitely is true though .. I’m finding gems that are slipping through the cracks.
        For some domains to explode at auction .. all it really takes is 2 domainers who found them through the lists and place bids on them. After a couple of bids, the names get noticed by everyone else and *IF* good enough, could even jump into low $xxxx territory by the end of the auction.
        But take away a few domainers seriously going through the lists, and a slightly higher number of domains slip through .. so even if the number of good domains bid on by 2+ is still like 95% .. before it was more like 98-99% .. so effectively there are 3 times as many sleeper domains passing through.
        Obviously i’m just making up numbers for demonstration purposes .. but the difference between is real. Compared to when I started I’m picking up significantly better domains at lower prices. While I can admit at least part of that is because even if I had domains since 1999, I was still somewhat of a newbie “domainer” (even in 2016), there are some great names I’m snapping up at $12 or closeout that should have gone into a much higher range if only a 2nd domainer had placed a bid.
        The difference with you .. is that you’re now at a notch above .. into the low range one word or single term one compound word territory … at or relatively close to that 5 figure wholesale level. Those are pretty much now and forever liquid. Too many domainers are tracking them to slip through the cracks. The only problem investing in those domains is that you need more startup capital .. you did it the hard way of building your portfolio over time.
        It’s 2 different but workable models .. I buy domains mostly at or under $20 that should have gone for $200 to sell at $2000 .. you’re looking to buy at $5-10+k to resell at $25-50+k. The advantage of your way of doing things is that it’s much MUCH simpler .. less management. But if I used your approach .. I’d have 3-4 domains in my portfolio .. no fun in that! lol
        So yeah .. I guess I should have used a word other than danger .. lol .. it is a danger to the domains I got when I first started buying seriously (the weaker ones of which I’ve let drop) .. but since I’ve learnt more and adjusted what I buy .. then combine the fact that I actually do the work of combing through the lists .. it’s now an advantage for me! 🙂
        Seems like it’s been a while since I’ve rambled on here! lol

    Thanks for the shout-out! Crypto sure is dynamic and interesting! It is also amazing how many ways there are to make money in the Domain industry! Hopes for a prosperous year for all in both domains and crypto!
