Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday June 1st

Jun 01 2017

Frank Schilling needs to find someone to bounce things off.  To that I’ll add an image manager.  He has had a terrible spring and seems to be losing touch with his market.  Just yesterday he presented some ridiculous emails about .XYZ and how they could be used.   He breaks the golden rule about talking about your expensive stuff and posts about his nice car that he had someone wash, getting rained on. He posts a tweet about his app that lets him see live, all the names that are being sold on the Uniregistry market.  Our names, my names.  He gets the data. And this was just yesterday.  It’s almost like he can’t relate anymore to the average domain investor because he hasn’t been average for  decade. He is in a whole other world.  Most of us don’t have jets or fancy cars and live on an island. At least not from domain money.    He is Apollo Creed when we are all still Rocky.  And it comes across in his twitter account and his announcements.

And while I think he is struggling as a figurehead, I still think Frank is as intelligent and passionate about domains as anyone in the business.  He is overly optimistic which I will still take over the people that complain and find every negative in our space. That’s why I am still a friend and a fan and would be on his team any day.  That being said, he needs someone that is not a yes man to talk to.  To ask if what he is about to say or announce is a good idea.  Someone that will say it like it is.  The ridiculous statements about Frank trying to scam people is ridiculous.  He genuinely thinks what he is presenting is a good idea.  He just needs that confidant to let him know it isn’t.

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

Quote of the Day:  “I didn’t buy my first luxury watch or car until my businesses and investments were producing multiple secure flows of income. I was still driving a Toyota Camry when I had become a millionaire. Be known for your work ethic, not the trinkets that you buy.” — Grant Cardone

Domain of the Day: Can’t believe its not taken. Original name of Pearl Jam. Old NBA player

 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Getting bids because of the 12,000 monthly visits    One of the few types of dot coms that I don’t see a lot of end use but the liquidity is so good I still buy.  Funny because Godaddy give it a value of Zero    You think its stupid but there are already bidders and have to admit you would remember it. It IS the shortest color   Yeah, I may bid.  But I really don’t like i names   Another startup that was acquired (2008) and the name is dropping.  Getting four figure bids  The V will drop the value but will still do well   Upgrade name for several companies    Billfold for bitcoins is where I think this is trying to head  Bitcoin wallet is what I see.   Of course I think of ‘Blue Cars’ by Dishwalla as well. I feel like I could take one every day. Doing very well as expected. Met reserve

Domains That I Like With One or No Bids No bids. For your dog or your kids A lot of to live up to. I feel like a cheesy foreign guy who tells everyone he is the The King of The Sex would want it for an email. A few different uses I can think of. Putting new faces or cover on something Not saying to buy this but to point out that good letter 5Ls do sell. Not for much but they are getting bids occasionally Good name for the portfolio of a few people I know Sounds like a lawn or landscape company More people are stocking ponds with baby shrimp and harvesting them at the end of the year. There are shrimp farming systems and kits No bidders. Fresh is good. Digital isn’t too bad either Looks and sounds techy to me My native American name this summer. Because I am dropping sugar out of my diet. For the most part. A little here and there because I’m human


Other Godaddy Domains With Bids

Namejet Auction  1994 domain.  Reserve is under $25K which is fair in today’s market  Speaking of Frank.  His company is high bidder here   Great Western letters.   Much more valuable to me than a regular old “CHiP”    Another one here.  A little higher reserve   Looks like its going to meet reserve.  Doing much better than I thought it would.  no reserve.   Have to admit, it’s the first single letter dot biz I’ve ever seen    Sounds like something I won’t be able to break  Sounds like 90s tech name which it is    Hopefully not too unique.  I like different but tasty   Overused word but still works  Already a book but could be used for other things  Not going to meet reserve

    Are you sure those names listed weren’t just his own personal account names?

    I mean obviously he has access to all sales on the platform .. just like all owners of all registrars .. but did he really share other people’s names?

    After looking at the pic in a thread on NP I did notice he sold .. and while I do truly appreciate his time and participation at Domain Sherpa (just as I have yours) .. I’m not sure I could ever respect anybody who sells Diet Cookies! 🙁

    I actually did send him a personal thank you in a PM at NP back in March, along with a message about a little bug at Uni .. but don’t think he’s even been online since!

    Can’t just single him out though .. because of their expirations I mostly use GoDaddy .. and they are a pretty big mess with even less transparency .. just as I’m sure a large number of registrars are …

    I’m inclined to agree with you on the most important thing though .. pretty sure he’s just saying what he actually genuinely believes. And based on his email posted at NP .. I do appreciate the fact that he stresses that domaining is about risks. You won’t find too many business owners out there who will openly admit and actually progressively warn you that buying his products is a real risk and shouldn’t be done lightly.

    Maybe it’s time to re-read your message from yesterday’s blog and realise he’s in a completely different world .. not necessarily better or worse .. just different .. with a ton of bling .. but disgusting cookies. Personally I think I’d go with better tasting cookies over bling every time! lol

    As for the .xyz specific part … here’s what I wrote already:
    “The one point where maybe I can see maybe understand his vision (although not necessarily agree with it) is that maybe at some point down the road there might be end use demand for cheap domains (some still think that IoT will require a kazillion new cheap domains .. others think it won’t at all).

    That being said .. I just feel that these are like penny stocks .. but with no chance of any significant value increase. The problem with investing in cheap domains thinking that there will be a need someday for cheap domains … is that those domains need to be sold cheap .. lol .. meaning no significant upside .. EVER!

    Again I do think that possibly the top 10,000 .xyz (2L, possibly 3N and well above average single key-words) do have a bit of value. But 10k out of literally millions means that essentially/effectively someone could say all .xyz are junk and only be 0.01% wrong .. lol.”

    I’m thinking maybe we need to move to the Caymens and start a PR agency .. could do very well with just him as the one client! 😉

      Thanks Ategy. Nice write up. Those very well could have been his but my guess and its a guess. He sees everything that comes through the platform. Regardless of ownership

      1. Ategy

        Oh .. yeah .. probably … but that assuming he actually has the time for that .. which is probably a pretty strong argument that he doesn’t check other people’s domains nearly as much as we’d think .. heck .. he probably barely knows what’s in his own portfolio at tihs point … lol.

        But the only thing I was really questioning is if he actually posted other people’s domains on twitter … lol

        Obviously Frank is doing everything he can to be a successful investor and businessman … but at the end of the day I truly question ICANN’s oversight in allowing registries to be registrars and vice versa .. and more importantly in allowing both to also be “domainers” in that they are allowed to hold on to domains indefinitely by holding them in shadow accounts in affiliate holding companies. Huge potential for conflict of interest … even worse that it’s openly allowed .. so can’t blame anyone for playing by horrible rules when they didn’t actually make the rules! I think energy would be better spent in trying to change the rules themselves .. you know anybody who works at ICANN? lol

        I would be surprised if he didnt.:)

        This is why he created uniregistry, for that data.
        This is what every business would like to learn, other sellers price.

  2. Josh E

    Uniregistry Market is very clear (to me anyway) as to whether or not your sales data is shared or kept private, there’s a toggle button on each domain, or you can use the portfolio settings.

    There’s definitely some other platform issues that need worked out, and I wish they had 247 support.

    In the past you’ve written about expensive items too, like the Jawa with the vinyl cape and access to buckets of frozen blueberries, Each handful costs $5 in NewYorkCity.

    You’re right, if you’re using real maple syrup on your pancakes don’t brag about it to everyone eating Aunt Jemima.

      Ha. Bragging about blueberries that I drove 6 hours to get fresh at the farm is the same as fueling my jet. And buying a vinyl cape Jawa from selling toys that I collected as a kid in 1977 is also the same. I brag as much as anyone but I brag more about how hard I worked to earn it. I feel there is a difference.
