Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday, November 26th, 2017

I don’t think I am going to auction any word domains again.  Of the names that I sold at our DSAD auction last fall and spring, I have received 5 figures worth of offers.  Yes, names I no longer own.  They never changed the DNS so I still get the offers.  Of course it could be the old “give me a fake offer, have me go back and buy it back, and then the offer disappears” trick.  But I don’t think someone has tried to pull it 4 times on 4 different domains.  In hind site I should have never auctioned any of those domains.

I’m not saying I’m not going to auction any names anymore.  I think everyone should clean out the portfolio.  I will be using Namejet and Sedo to move a few names in the next few months but I’m definitely not auctioning off my two word or one word names right now.  They are climbing in value faster than ever.  The junk, on the other hand, is losing value quicker than ever due to the options that are now open in the new Gs.  Knowing the difference is the key to successful domain investing.

For me, the key is to sell enough names privately to keep feeding the domain buying beast.  When they don’t is when I feel the need to auction names.  I just have to learn to be patient.  Something that has been difficult for me when I have profit sitting in front of me.  I will let things run but I always sell before it runs to big profit. I need to change that.

On another note, I finally bought some crypto.  Andrew Rosener and I  had one of our nice little couple hour chats and he convinced me to just take some money and buy a bitcoin. Just have a little skin in the game.   So I read the charts and decided I liked litecoin’s chart a little more and that it had a better chance to run.  To me it looked like all it needed was to break 80 with volume and it could really run.  Big resistance at 90 and 100 but after that it could go crazy  So I took one bitcoin worth of money and bought some litecoin in the mid 70s.  So far so good.  I will probably put another 10K in as soon as I can move it into the market.  It will give me something to look at while I wait for my domain offers to come in on the domains I’ve already sold.

On a third note.  Yes, I hated watching Bama lose. The good news is I lost nothing because its only football which is still just a game.  Second, I had no money on the game because I was plenty emotionally involved and needed nothing else. Third, it was much easier watching yesterday’s loss than on the last play of the National Championship game.

Enjoy the day  Here are today’s domains. Click for current price

Domain of the Day:  Fintech income.  Surprisingly only 2 bidders.

Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction  I assume the Cuban cigar will be coming soon.  Cigars will make a comeback.  Buy low     Drink your water   1995 birthday for this LLL.  H for holdings  21 year old 5L   Good name for my growing business but probably going to a canna investor  No reserve.  Good letters and the O gives you a discount code  RN for nurse is the drive IMO.  Of course the Chinese completely disagree

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  1995 domain and has the most bids on the GD board today  1996 Birthday. Under $50 at press time.  Has value as a marketing name    Getting quite a few bids.   But don’t make a stand unless you want to.  No pressure   Never thought this would get a bid.  I thought it would be mine at closeout.  Nope  Don’t even try and buy it at a brick and mortar store.  At $500 and climbing have been money the last 4 years   I see it more as a marketing name than a company name   Just a matter of time before loans are going to be financed through crypto

Godaddy Names With One or No Bids  1997    Very nice name for $12 IMO   Not huge value but color+animal always has some value IMO.  No bids  Short and easy to spell.  And priced right at press time with no bids  Upgrade name for a few companies  Very official looking.  No bids  Hand reg type name but I do like the sound and rhythm of it  If you have kids you know that’s pretty much what you become.  A taxi to take your kids to all their stuff  You use a proxy to become a ghost. No bidders  School search site.  Could be online education.  No bids I only wish I could tell which NNNL have value.  Like this one   Your station for everything bitcoin Not a ton of value but a good kids name  Good marketing name.  taken in a few other tlds

  1. Glad you decided to get into crypto. Bitcoin will hit $10k very soon and then I think there will be a big correction in price, maybe as much as 30-40% but after that zoom back up to $11-13k very soon after. The secret is not to panic sell and just hold for long term or take some short term profits if it does start to slip and repurchase at a lower price. I’m not a crypto expert by any stretch of the imagination and this is just a gut feeling I’m going on but it is fun to watch the prices jumping every day and can be very profitable. Long term you’ll be very happy you got into crypto and probably start wondering why you didn’t get in earlier.

  2. Just noticed you invested in Litecoin and not Bitcoin. Very good safe investment. If Bitcoin does do a correction buy some and enjoy the very fast and profitable ride after that.

  3. “(my two word or one word names right now) … are climbing in value faster than ever. The junk, on the other hand, is losing value quicker than ever due to the options that are now open in the new Gs. Knowing the difference is the key to successful domain investing.”
    This is pretty much what I’ve been saying since I took a more serious step into domaining (although you likely said it in a fraction of the words .. lol.
    Seriously though .. some solid 2 word .com’s will always be strong … and as the one words dry up they will be the #1 sought after domain commodity (without spending $50k or more for single words). That being said .. VERY good single word’s I see going up in value and surpassing weaker 2-word .com’s. Obviously only in good solid TLD’s without spam/junk reputation. One of the reasons I still like .co is because the relatively high holding cost actually reduces the spam score .. it’s likely not what it was when GD featured it on superbowl commercials .. but it’s still solid. I also think .biz isn’t as bad as people think. .Net is falling fast as a generic .. but I think anything “tech” is still good (I consider .net a top tier ngTLD for tech). Others can be good ONLY if the word/term on in context to the TLD .. meaning that most words are junk .. but the few words that do match the TLD are gold.
    So many people have been arguing over whether nTLD’s are good or bad .. or if they are worth it or not .. very few have come to realise that there is such a huge range in quality for them, that the answer is a very strong yes *AND* no. Crappy 2-word .com’s will always be crappy .. good 1 word alternates will slowly start to pass them as awareness in non-com grows .. but .com will always be king .. and if your 2-word is strong .. it will be better than most 1-word non-com (for at least several more years .. if not longer .. that’s another debate for another day .. lol).
    I have a unique picture on this because of the timing of my start in domaining .. it’s interesting to note that as a 1-year old domainer who obviously bought at least some crap when he started (at least .. lol) .. that I find myself dropping approximately the same % ratio in the .com’s vs non-com’s that I originally bought .. just goes to show that there’s opportunity and garbage in both .com and

    1. I think non coms are like trying to win the Westminster Dog Show by buying a giant dog shelter. There is a chance that one of the muts could win the thing but you have to take care of all the dogs while you wait for a purebred champion to show up.

      1. Fatih, was the last one with a offer over $2K. The story was for the overall thoughts not for the actual detail of each offer. But they were all four figures offers and all the sales were $200ish

      2. That’s kinda my point .. in that you don’t actually need to win the Dog Show .. those will go to Rosener .com domains each and every time .. the key is go into the dog shelter .. take your time to learn the traits of the best ones .. then take a small number of select dogs and you’ll actually have a good chance of beating out at least a couple of the pure breads .. end up with a nice 3rd place ribbon! Because don’t forget that the “maintenance” costs might be a little more for muts (especially .co and .io) .. but at the same time you’re not paying $x,xxx to the .com breeder at the start! You don’t have to finish first to make money in domaining .. you just need to learn how to select the best dogs before you get too many that only know how to pee all over your Air Jordans! 😉

  4. Shane,
    I look at BTC as the equivalent of .com in domain names. It will always be the first choice of the consumer/investor.
    Best of luck
