Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday July 21st

Jul 21 2017


There is so much good and so much bad that come from crowd investigations.  The thread at Namepros has some great info but the other 95% is complete garbage with nothing other than personal guessing and emotion.  Garbage that offers nothing to the situation.  Yes, everyone should be upset if its proven there was collusion.  But I hate all the “I think this guy is bad and this guy associates himself with that guy so he is bad too”   At some point we have to trust. But its naive to think most people know what the other does when he/she is not working with you.  If they don’t do it in front of you or tell you about it you just don’t know until someone tells you or shows you.

Another thing that bothers me are the people that say one thing and do differently.   One person on the thread is saying that our industry is a bunch of asses but he too had a business partner bid on a name he owned.  They said it was a case of the partner wanted the name. I say, let the partner buy it from you before you put it up for auction.  It is just as wrong as everything we’re talking about. So it bothered me when he blasted the industry and people within as being crooks when the entire thread was based on an action that was similar to what happened with him.  Accident or not.  Legit or not.  It’s exactly what we are talking about.  Maybe it was all good and an honest mistake,  but its the appearance of impropriety that we are all trying to avoid.  I can’t have Josh, Travis, or Aaron bid on my names. Regardless of whether its in the TOS doesn’t matter.  It’s the appearance of collusion.

I know that stuff goes on and it doesn’t bother me in small doses.  Small doses are almost impossible to stop. What bothers me is in big doses. On large scale.  Discussed and managed in advanced to push prices higher.  I know that people prop prices up on categories by buying names.  6N, 5N, all are purchased in large quantities by big players to set comparatives.  Its a fact.  If they are willing to spend their money and buy the name then let them prop all they want.  It’s their money.  It’s happened in stocks for a century.  Those that have large assets to protect will do what it takes to keep prices high.  I’m ok with that.  The are buying.  But selling and forcing others to pay more through collusion is illegal and wrong.  Namejet has to fix it. If its proven that people knew and did nothing about it they have to leave.  I’m am not saying that this is the case.  Only a third party can investigate and give that answer.  Its the only answer customers will accept.

But I will continue to buy names during the process.  If anything I feel like more eyes are watching.  I make a living buying and selling names and Namejet provides me with this ability.  It just needs to be cleaned up so we can all continue to buy and sell comfortably.    Here are today’s names.

Quote of the Day: You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough”  -Frank Crane

Domain of the Day:     Come here, get smarter.  16 years old

Sedo Domains     New York and anything with F.  New York is a pretty big market     Reasonable reserve   I for International at the front. I is good because it works well in all three slots   Seems like people can go anywhere without music so that’s a market I want to be in   the star of the Sedo auction this month    Never even heard of .cl but surprised how much traffic it gets

Namejet Domains  Only orchid lovers will know what this is without looking it up.  If you’ve never been its worth going. And its not those fake painted ones at the grocery store.   1995 domain    Almost everything lately.   Especially politics.   Reserve will keep this with the owner most likely   look who the high bidders is.  Our little old friend HKDN.    We seem to like the same names. I will say that he’s never beat me on an but he always guides me to the reserve   I would like the plural better.  Finding warehouses here in Colorado is tough because of all the weed cultivation.  Brandbucket type name  We still doing dot IO because I know we’re still doing weddings.  A lot of people are doing more than one    The kind of 5Ls I like if I can get them cheap enough   One of the few times that targeting is good  Remote bitcoin wallet.  No bids   1999 with no bids


 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids    Most of the world has no idea what blockchain is   27,500 backlinks and 20 years old     I’m not allowed to go to these anymore.  1999 domain     Upgrade name for a few companies   Title company all the way   for Mature  and  Two LLLL that are created differently.  RX saves the left but neither is a good Western name.  The right is a far better name IMO   I have no idea why its this high.  You tell me   I am always wrong about brands that claim low cost, cheap.  I think they sound like lesser quality but turns out that people are drawn to it    Feels like tattoo shop in a big city   Reminds people of digital

Domains That I Like With One or No Bids Fintech meets crypto currency Find out who got funded Originally registered in 1998. Only 898 results so you can own Google results The goal of every website Its a dot net but holiday is a word for vacation and no better vacation spot than an island I’ve been on this bus. It was full of ass. Not allowed to go there anymore either Sounds like a nice place to have a beer 5L with no bids Good name for those solar lights that look like flowers I like X names. Everyone knows it makes the Z sound and it looks cool Most people’s worst nightmare. No bids Sounds like a Vegan ice cream shop Canna or just normal green goods Plants and fruits make nice brands there are actually companies that sell just that. Myself included The rx makes it sound like its real medicine

    You make a living buying and selling domains? Every other post you state you do this for extra income. Don’t you make a living from your nursery? I’m so confused.

        Thank you for the clarification. Please understand that as a reader I can’t read between your lines. I read what you actually write.

    You forgot to mention that the guy you’re talking about has been in the industry for 20 years. He would appreciate me mentioning this.

    You may want to change your title. Today is Friday, July 21st 2017 ( not Tuesday as your title says) but maybe you are doing a historical look at auctions from Tuesday, July 21st in 2015.
