Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday February 21st, 2018

Feb 21 2018

Keep your day job. There is no reason why you can’t make a ton of money in domain investing and still work in the “regular” world.  There is more than enough time to put in the hours necessary to find good domains, communicate, and do research.   The only way I think you should do domain investing as a living is if you already made enough to quit your job.  “I make a great living doing it full time” .  That may be true but it a very low percentage of people that do and succeed.   And even less of people that started doing it recently. Giving up the best years of your earning career is a mistake IMO.  Again, if you make enough to “retire” to domain investing then all of this article can be disregarded.   Otherwise. Make your money to pay your bills.  Make yourself more valuable in your career.  And make that fun money that you can keep rolling in domains.  Hungry can drive but it can also force you into bad decisions.

Here are today’s names, Click on them for current price

Quote of the Day: “Nobody really knows what they look like. The mirror shows you only what you want to see”  -Terry Wogan

Domain of the Day:  Great name for a domain name sales or auction platform.  At $20

Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   At six figures and moving up  Met reserve. Worth a lot more than the current price IMO.  Can make money back in selling compliance posters alone   Very surprised this has no bids at all.  .tv has lost a step.  Might be a time to jump in or run away   Luminosity type of name.  Reserve is a little high but might just hit it  Met reserve so its going to sell.    Gum is a great delivery method so his would be a great brand  The kind of name I love.  But so do a ton of other people  This had to go up in value since the recent sale of eBike at auction   What a great   Reserve is high but fair IMO

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  Pronounceable  Getting harder and harder to find   Seems like a nice name for a pitchfest type event in front of venture money  Fin Tech name all the way   Because every Mom thinks their kid is model worthy.  So they are easy pickings in the Mall Model Scam. 67 bids    For every vegan there are 3 that will devour a pig, cow, or chicken.  They are just less vocal    Two things that go together well.  26 bids  Bosnian for lions     All consonants will have the Chinese on it.  How on it I’m not sure anymore   Had no idea there were so many places named Fibber Magees     Was a steak and seafood place in Tuscon.  Now the domain can be yours   Exudes strength and tech.  Has a few bids   Not sure exactly what it would be used for but sounds techy and futuristic   GD says it gets 800 visits a month.  Has some backlinks so you are buying a little bit of a head start   Great letters but you will have to fight Chinese bidders on this one    Plenty of place online that have templates but this name will give you some advantage   Interesting to see that some of the LLNN with non repeaters are starting to get bids  People LOVE joining tribes     See model name above.  Or porn   Talk about the poison that I love    You don’t have to love it but you have to respect it.  2001 name with 14 bids   There absolutely is but its harder.  Make the effort.  At least 9 months a year

Godaddy Names With No Bids  Its where all the fun happens.  No bids  With 150 monthlys it probably gets some typo money because of the high hosting CPC  Good name for a portfolio site    Big word in the news today with war and immigrations.  People in places they’d rather not be  Cool name for a site that measures or tracks something.  No bids   Canna or MJ come to mind first  Because there will be a place called this eventually.   Just checked.  Already is a place   “We are great at two things”  No bids  Some times the top rots before the bottom and you just need a new lid instead of buying a whole new coffin.  Here’s where you go  Easily could make a whole video site of this  Upgrade name for a few places  Wood and animal horns  this site had it before Travis fixed it  Fun travel name for $12   Now illegal in every state but DC

    Sound advice. You can indeed combine domaining with a full-time job without problem.

    Also, we mostly hear when people have success. But not so much all the others struggling.

      I think we do talk about domain failures namely from everyone that does make money in domains. We all have stories about buying crazy shit in the beginning and losing money, but then taking that loss as a lesson and knowledge gained.

      I would also suggest that 90% of the lists submitted to DomainSherpa over the past several years are good examples of domain failure learning lessons.

      Talking about the failures over and over doesn’t really inspire anyone so naturally the positives are highlighted more than failures. Studying the fails can be just as beneficial, but sometimes the best learning is to fail yourself and learn. When someone offers knowledge or if you participate in something like DN Academy you’re taking steps to mitigate or reduce the failure learning curve.

    Totally agree .. Sometimes I find myself super tired balancing everything .. not just real world + domaining .. but also the rest of life .. family/friends .. walking and playing with Steamie .. eating .. and something some people refer to as sleeping?
    That being said .. anybody currently domaining without a real job .. if I was able to just start my whole worklife all over again .. then I’d focus on a job that allows me to domain while working. Although I 100% most certainly think Josh is a super smart and extremely hard working guy .. I don’t think it could be denied that at least part of his success is thanks in part to the fact that the bulk of his paid work time is spent on stand-by.
    A kazillion years ago before my current job, I spent a summer working three x 12.5 hour overnight shifts a week in an incoming call center. It was a big company that had many many departments .. but the only reason they needed somebody at night was because they had a contract with AmEx to be open 24/7 to handle a specific sub-service for VIP clients. I’d get several calls from other departments the first couple of hours .. but then the rest of the night I’d get maybe 3-4 calls total (5 minutes each).
    Back in those days the internet existed, but wasn’t really standard at workstations .. so while I did become a Jedi Master at Minesweeper, I wasn’t able to do anything online.
    Takeaway .. if you really want to make a go of it at domaining .. then given the risks DEFINITELY keep a “real world” job .. but maybe look for an overnight security guard job in a big apartment building or something similar where 90% of your paid shift is sitting behind a desk (with an internet connection .. lol). I say this because last year I met someone doing exactly that .. and he was telling me how he was simply playing games all night … and I was like .. cool .. but if he actually used that time to further his side projects or education then it really could be a very smart job .. even if you’re making a little less than you could elsewhere .. I obviously thought how perfect a job that would be for domainers! 🙂

      That’s how my job is 😀 . Thanks for the feature Shane, I’m getting closer and closer to making monies in this name game! @Ategy, Steamie?

    Oh yeah .. StreetWax = absolutely amazing name for a record label (back when vinyl record sales were 100x what they are now .. not quite so amazing today .. lol).
    Also … seems to me TrainBrain and HybridBike are names that ring a bell .. could they be from an older Sherpa Review Portfolio?
