Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday September 6th

Sep 06 2017

A few days ago I bought a domain at auction that used to be a pretty big local site here in our town.  It was an arts and entertainment site for all things local.  Our newspaper has been getting crushed financially (like most papers).  It doesn’t help they had no plan to counter the effects of the internet.  The local talk radio and the paper were left in a will to be run as a non profit.  And boy have they done a great job.  They don’t even try and make a profit. Always pinching pennies.  No clue how to price or compete.   They gouged the people that used their Help Wanted ads.  They knew that local university and many companies by law were required to post job listings.  When the law opened it up to online then everyone moved and stop using the paper.  It was $20 instead of $300.   They had trouble realizing the ONLY reason people read the local paper is to watch our kids sports, to see who died, see who got arrested,  and interesting stories on local businesses and people.  The rest we got online 12 hours ago.   They made no attempt to buy the local sites that had gained traction.  They could have bought them and hired the staff on the cheap.   They’ve tried but recently they have decided to empty their nice radio station and condense the entire company into one floor of a 5 story building.  Their staff is so small it makes sense.   I got their old domain and the traffic is solid. Its a good name by itself but the traffic is great to send to my nursery website.  A few couple thousand of local visitors for free each month.   And free local web traffic is a good thing.  Here are today’s names.

Domains of the Day:   Met reserve.  Conjure up some profits

Namejet , DropCatch, and Sedo Names at Auction      A word people use quite a bit and the way I like to live.  Would like to see the reserve a bit lower  I can’t use one because it goes off all the time when I use it  These lower quality have certainly dropped in value but not in use.  Some good value IMO on many.    All comes down to the reserve.  Very good letters Already met reserve at $333  I thought it was a good name when it first came up for auction.  Nice to see others agree  Comic fans will like this one  Met reserve at $70.  Marketing name for someone down the road   The rhyming gives it all the value   Has a bio engineering feel to it  I assume it will have a lot more bidders after it moves to public auction.  Only 19 now     The name makes it sound old and cool.  Does have some age.  What every marketer is looking to get   A name but really not many people called it.  Still a cool sounding word

 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   1999 domain with 13,000 backlinks has this one flying   1995 on this one.   Age and I for international puts this close to four figures for me.  My opinion only, don’t buy on my opinion or people will yell at me.   It’s cute because its spelled with a K and Kids is also.  16 bids    It’s the trade show I used to go to when I was a kid.  It folded and a new one was formed under a new name   Sounds tough, like scorpion   Rather have the .com but it sounds more helpful on the dot org  Nice 5L getting some bids.   Is also a type of palm     Every industry has them.  We just don’t always know who they are   Definitely a need for a new news feed, blog feed.  Just no money in it    A CHiP that is about to hit four figures.    How much you think this one is worth?  I bet you will still be surprised by the current and closing price   Sounds techy.  Other bidders agree and  When you need them, you really need them


Domains That I Like With One or No Bids    Imagine how much would be worth.  This is a percentage of that.  No bids Can’t think of a better time to buy and sell bitcoin names than now. No bidders Someone could have some fun with this one. No bidders We spend money on the outer man. We work on the inner man Live out your fantasy or pretend you are an owner and get points for grown men playing sports A lot of places called 22 west What many want to say as they walk out the door. Not a real word but sounds like it. Those make great brands. No bidders One dog I’m taking a bite out of. Don’t like Still a viable naming convention for startups Might be worth looking at for $12 Strong marketing name. But you better protect them if you’re going to say it Getting a bid for Bit. Bit and short are worth a few bucks now I don’t even know what a snake stick is but it sounds cool

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.

    The World and technology constantly evolve. Keeping your head in the sand may land you on an empty beach when you finally pull your head out. “Where did everyone and all their business go?”
    They moved on to a better beach. Happening in a lot of industries atm. 😉
