Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday August 24th

Aug 24 2017

I had my first results via DropCatch and overall I think it went well. I got crushed on and sold it at a big loss. I knew it was coming so its not Dropcatch’s fault.  I bought way too high.   But went well and I made a little money on it.  $500 or roughly 40% for 2 years work.   Not the best but if I can do that 1000 times I’ll be happy.  Actually I would take 100 times.   I realize that profit is what pays the bills but since this name was paid for two years ago, the revenue goes straight back into the kitty (minus taxes) and I have all the money to put back into names. I do things a little differently than most.  I use the revenue I create from my domain names to buy the next names.  No sales, no income from the blog, no purchases.  Some times I have to wait weeks to buy a name.  Most domain investors are too addicted to wait weeks and put some of their bill paying and savings back into their domain purchases.  I don’t and so I have to wait.  I also like to keep a  buffer in my account and if it gets below that I don’t buy a name.

You know that old saying “when something great comes along you don’t have the money and when you have the money nothing great comes along”.   Well, I’m going to have the money when something great comes along.   At the time I bought my buffer number was a bit lower than it is now.  I had been talking to the people for years but when they were ready to sell they came quickly. Fortunately,  I had it and I spent it.   It worked out well.  And I’ll be ready if it comes around again.  I don’t have to spend it.  I won’t spend it unless its something very special.  I dipped into it to buy and last month so I haven’t done much buying in August.  But I’m having a great month and my kitty should be flush if it keeps it up for the next 10 days.  Money management is the key to gambling and investing.  I was terrible at it for 45 years.  Now that I’ve gotten better at it I understand why its so important. Here are today’s names.

Domains of the Day:   Looks at the average price of CVCV and you’ll see these have move up faster than most categories

Namejet Names at Auction  Love this one.  A lot of different uses and a term everyone knows  Cloud names still one of the top categories    the Tinder of Romantics  Billions of dollars, 49 bidders   going to take a buildout but there are Masters students looking to help pay for college  I’ve said it a lot but I like energy names.  I think alternative is going to play a big role in the future   Probably not going to sell here but its getting publicity and that’s the point of putting it up for auction   Hipsters definitely deserve their own organization.    “An organization founded in 2017 but everyone looks like they are from 1840”   but for the World I’d rather have this at $17 but one of those names you can sell at BIN.  No bids Not getting a lot of attention but gaming is too big for this to not have good value

Names At Auction From Other Auction Houses   At $350 at press time but doubt it will be there when it closes this afternoon     I think of active ingredient but could mean movement.   19 bids  Canna con  all the way   A nice little getting a bid or two   Under $300 at press time and closing in a few hours  Dave Evanson says this one is getting close to reserve which would be pretty reasonable  Another one very close to reserve  Looks like this one isn’t going to sell  Not one single bid on this one.  None

 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Ma.  More Meatloaf   1998 Domain.  The kind of I like to buy. But so does Elliot and a few others and they could care less if its me bidding or not   Not going to get a lot for this but can turn a few hundred into a few thousand  Becoming pretty much impossible to find a 5L under $50 that you can pronounce  I think it has value because its a good typo for cancer    Nice to see a good old auto insurance name making the list again    The Chinese are going to like this one   Yep, a dot co is the highest price on the GD board today   Somebody is hoping to sell this to a company of the same name.  And paying a good amount to do it     Podcasts and books What are you doing later? How a lot of people got through High School
