Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday May 24th , 2018

If there is one thing I learned in domain investing its past sales are very useful for establishing value. But don’t trust all the sales.    Ron Jackson is the best in the industry at verifying real sales but even he has had a few that turned out to be less than straight forward.

What reminded me was the Detected article by James Iles at Namepros.  This series and Jamie at DotWeekly are some of my favorite reads.  I was catching up on some of the articles from James and saw that he reported Elliot Silver had sold  A name I had really liked.  A solid brand.   I wanted to see if I could find out how much it went for.  But its still in his name, still for sale.  Interestingly enough at Brandbucket.   If I were to only have read the Namepros article I would have assumed it sold and moved on.  And not one person even questioned it.  See the comments below.  The whoIS checkers I used aren’t updated which I think is going to be the issue pretty much going forward.  I was WRONG here.  My apologies

And here lies the problem.  So much is written on the Internet that is opinion dressed as facts that it is hard to figure out what is true.  If someone says it sold,  it sold right?  Why would we question it?  Other times just to establish a value, a writer avoids the legal problem of writing incorrect information by using the words “I think” or “Could be” and other opinion based descriptions. All the while knowing that the reader discards that part and remembers the rest.  Its a game that writers use.

There is a ton of good information out there and I truly believe the sales history recorders,,, and our own Travis right here at DSAD do a great job capturing REAL sales data.  We can’t verify what’s going on behind the scenes at the auctions but the end results are real.  And that is the kind of info we can use to make educated auction decisions.   The writing and reporting interpretation articles are going to take a little more due diligence.

Here are today’s domains.  Click to see the latest price

Domain of the Day:  Damn,  look at the price on this one.  Wait until comes and doubles this one

 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   One of the best selling tools in the US.  I’m sure Stihl would love to own his as a marketing name. 21 years old and now up to $6K and climbing   I think it makes a great brand.  Memorable and delicious   If you are going to buy .xyz you want to buy major, short keyword names like this one  Met reserve.  Yes we know Green Bay owns the trademark but guarantee there is a fan that would pay pretty good money for it.   The bids prove it   I was going to buy this but FortyThieves wants it more than me     Surprised there aren’t more bidders than this.  Uniregisry is there though  TYPO do not buy. 30 bidders are not paying attention.  I won’t link so you don’t bid   Good domain for someone in our industry.  At $69    Getting close to reserve.  Closes today   Met reserve.  Last chance to buy before it heads to China

SEDO’s Great Domains Auction Ends Today

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids    Upgrade name for a bunch of entities.  21 years old   Presentation software is what comes to mind here.  Under $50 at press time   An old hosting site.   Thousands being paid for the old traffic and backlinks  generic Yelp   Mega is still a popular word in naming.  Only a few bids  Those 122,000 backlinks have to be the draw   Checks all the boxes.  Throw in Chain and Bitcoin and it would sell for a million  sit down, have a drink, and lets talk crypto   You see companies with tru in the name all the time  It means nothing to me but GD has it valued at $5K plus  Upgrade name for a few companies that already have named their company this


Godaddy Names With One or NO Bids  Art investment fund all the way.  No bids at $12.  1998 birthday  Solid marketing name for $12.  Appeal to the impatient  I think there is going to be a good run on Bet names as this sports book thing gets going. Under $50 at press time  Pretty good email address when used properly  Has an $8K estibot on it but no bids.  19 years old  another good name when giving out your card.   Ok a little creepy but forward works some times   A response to the above  Sound like a travel planning name.   The cream of the crop of crypto names.  Ok maybe not the cream but a crypto name  And keyword with an X at the end is worth looking at  What the name should be for so many stores.  Forward it to a product you don’t like  Nice little with no bids. Bonus is that its a last name

  1. Elliot doesn’t seem like the mijda guy that lists a domain name on BrandBucket. It’s listed under Michael Bilde his profile who acquired a ton of premium names recently. Perhaps you’re looking at a outdated Whois record.

    1. That was my first thought as well Doron. But he also isn’t the kind of person that sells to another domain investor. But if the money is right it doesn’t matter who the buyer is.
      I became one of the writers that I just talked about. Spreading bad info. Ironic lesson for me here. I better stick to stories about my family 🙂

  2. Everything I write, especially on those Detected articles, is double checked to the best of my ability.

    However, on this occasion I’d suggest that the whois listing you checked may be outdated since it shows Embrand as the owner – the same Danish company that acquired for almost $100k recently.

    1. Thank you James. I have no doubt you wouldn’t post something unless you did your homework. I am pretty sure both my whoIs checks were wrong now that you and Doron pointed out a few things

      1. No problem, Shane 🙂

        It does raise a good point though. Going forward from tomorrow, fact checking domain sales is going to get a little more difficult!

  3. Loving the quote of the day

    Quote of the Day:  “God gives every bird a worm, but he doesn’t throw it into the nest“

  4. I did indeed buy I have also received suggestions that I should use it for a personal email address, but I think I will pass 😉
