Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday May 4th

May 04 2017

Over the last few days I’ve been spending extra time doing two things. Making sure my names are listed on Afternic.  And putting BIN prices on all but my best names.  If you have the money to buy and hold forever hoping you will be the next Rick Schwartz then you can do that.  For me, it has become obvious that you can’t just sit and wait for offers.  The most important thing you can do is get your name into the search box of as many people as you can.  Type in or search, you want the potential buyers to know your name is for sale and the opportunity to buy it.  As simple as it sounds, I can go to almost everyone’s portfolio and find a ton of names that are just sitting there with no path to purchase.

I have not done a great job of it and every time I see Josh selling a name it reminds me I need to do that as well for all my names.  Sedo, Godaddy, Afternic, Efty.  You need to be listed at all of them.  Efty for landing and no commission, Sedo because people still search for names there.  Afternic and Godaddy because more people register names there than anywhere and your name will pop up with a price when someone types it in.   I don’t even mind that places like eNaming list my name likes its their own when people search.  Because I own the name and if she gets a good buyer I still win.

There is certainly an art to pricing but not as much as people like Mike Mann will make it seem.  There are psychological price points.  Industry price points.  And lots and lots of guessing.  Historical data will help guide and people like Huge Domains have tens of thousands of sales to help guide them on pricing.  If I find a name of similar quality I will price my names similarly.   Mostly because I’m lazy and its easier.  That, and the fact I’m usually pulling a price out of my ass. Might as well pull it out of theres. Here are today’s names.    Click for Current Price


Quote Of The Day  Never regret anything because at some point it was exactly what you wanted” 

Domain Of The Day:  Big fan of “the” names.  This one is cheap right now.   18 years old

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Great pattern here. Going to be highly sought by the Chinese market     Good for anyone or anything that’s non affiliated.  20 years old   Almost everyone has one.  I think there is even a new show about them    16 million google results can’t be wrong.   1999 domain   Nothing hotter than USA politics    Sounds fancy.  They might have NEW Priuses and    The two on the GD board today  and  A few nice


Domains That I Like With One or No Bids 18 years old. Solid name for documenting daily Amish life. $12 would be a steal IMO Great name. I think the “the” at the beginning is actually preferable The dot com would be a six figure name, soooooooo Dot org is perfect here. Hope it happens. No bids This name became much more valuable once Sanctuary Cities became a thing. But no bidders Also known as Greenwich Connecticut. No bids These exist. Might as well name it appropriately Sounds a bit adult but vacation always sounds nice Looks like a site that would be at the bottom of the page on OutBrain I have no idea what its for but pet everything has a chance to sell Penguins can get pissy. No bids Probably pushing it but good online sports betting name I can already see it on a bumper sticker. So many people care more about animals than fellow human beings Interesting way to spell jigsaw

Some Nice if You’re in to That Type of Thing

Other Godaddy Domains With Bids

Namejet Auction       People will think Hippo or Battlecats character of the same name     Tons of ads for the product and everyone hates rodents      6 bids  Risk free my ass.  You’re going to bill me for shipping and monthly renewal until I remember to cancel it  My favorite name on the board.  Then again, I love short stories   Girls name.  A girls name get good prices  Reveal in Latin.  I think.  I took entomology but I figured its close enough to etymology that I should know word meanings as well as bugs   See these silly things on TV ads  the low amount of bids shows that 5N have fallen out of favor with everyone but the Chinese.

Have a name at auction and need more exposure? Send me an emailI Charge $10 per name per day. We may be able to help. If you have an auction you want to promote, email us for details.*All names chosen by me, Shane . (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

    Pricing my domains is probably my biggest roadblock at this point … even worse … I think I’m just informed enough to know that as you said .. pretty much everyone pulls a price out of their ass! lol

    Super hard to find the balance between not underselling / leaving money on the table vs actually selling your domain because someone didn’t find it too expensive!
