Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday November 22nd, 2017

Nov 22 2017

Looks like everyone wins.  Especially Godaddy.  Godaddy makes tens of millions of dollars from expired domains.  They love the free money.  What they don’t like is when people renew and they don’t get to keep the money on the sale of an expired domains. Rick Schwartz lost a name mid auction.  Godaddy lost the money Rick was going to pay for that domain.  Anyone that thinks Godaddy enjoys not getting money from you for an expired domain is not thinking logically.   You get upset, they lose money.  So they will do everything under the rules to try and snap the name the second they are allowed to and sell it.  Now its at 30 days.

Domain owners have less time than ever to remember to renew their domain.  Because its not about forgetting to renew, its about making money on the name and domain investors getting their domains.  Obviously I’m being sarcastic.  It’s supposed to be about renewals but because there is so much more money in selling them AND getting the renewals,  that changing the policy to get the most out of expired sales is the business model.  Make as much money as they can is the business model.  And I’m good with that.  Nothing wrong with making money as long as the registrant gets a fair shake at renewing his domain.  30 days is fair.

Next step is open auction. Paul Nicks says GD has no plans for bidder aliases which I think is a big mistake.  The coding would be simple.   I think the only reason it won’t be done is because we are going to see some bidding we don’t like.  I am merely guessing because when its dark you have to guess what’s in front of you. You expect the worse.  You only know the truth when somebody turns on the lights.  Time to turn on the lights.  Here are today’s domains. Click for current price


Quote of the Day:  “We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions”  -Ronald Regan

Domain of the Day:     Since a CHiP the price starts at $1000 and goes up if someone sees a Western use.  At $500 at press time


Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction    The Chinese are still buying these with the right numbers and letter combos   Has ten bids and closes today.   I assume its going to be a brand.  I know the word but can’t say I’ve ever used it  At $40.  13 years old   X is often a placeholder so companies with FIC acronym are also possible suitors     At $150 but has met reserve so it will sell  No bidders at $1 on this one.  19 years old  No bidders on this one as well.   Great Quilts of Thailand  but I imagine there is a much better acronym waiting  One of the few that I would actually buy.  Top Tier letters   This will be a good name to see exactly how much the best LLLL.coms are selling for    Climate change is a top topic right now.  The doesn’t hurt value   1989 original registration.  Pretty damn old    What?  No pigs?  Looks like I am going to have to go the house goat route

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  35 bidders.  Biggest price on the board today  Good acronym letters. All depends on the reserve   A little harder to read out loud with the double dot thing but Game Dot itself is a nice brand and easy logo  5L .com under $70 at press time  Free as in cost or free as in ability to do what you want   Trying to see why anyone would want this other than the age.  Turns out its a last name and last names will always be names of businesses. People like to name things after themselves   Can’t really find a translation but I see surfing when I see it and I bet others do as well  Crypto name.  Good as gold.  Or should I say, good as Bitcoin    Double 8 and a   I would guess 900ish   It’s cool because it has a K   The difference is you are up front with what you are going to deliver.  Or a site that showcases bad marketing   I haven’t mastered it yet


Godaddy Names With One or No Bids  Makes it sound official with the dot org 1998 birthday.  Get two popular naming words together for one low price.  No bidders  Going to have to outbid Louis C.K. for this one  I like this one a lot of $12.  Lots of training teams out there with much worse domains  Save tens of thousands by adding the “the” and you still have a good name  What we get half the time  Online travel journal for hikers  Not a ton of value but a good site name for life hacks and info  At least its memorable.  No bids   The double CC should garner a bid or two
