Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday August 17th , 2018

You’re going to overpay.  In this market you’re going to overpay for a single word, quality dot com if its available publicly.  You have no choice right now.  The only way to get a good price is to be offered a name before it goes public or dig up a name that hasn’t been offered.  All auctions, public email offerings, or “out there” names will go for top end price.  Everyone has cash.  Some have millions to spend.  There is more money out there then there is names.  I’m not saying that the prices being paid are too high.  On the contrary.  I think they will still look like great deals down the road.  I am merely saying that its a big boy game right now.  The money to be made right now is in the hunt.  But EVERYONE is hunting down names. By the time I find one and send an email that person has received hundreds.  That leaves trying to find the people that leave no clue on how to reach them.  The dot .io is a great example.  The whois for those is non existent and many of the good names have no lead to the owner.  If you could find them, many of them will sell.  The dot coms?  You’re more lucky to get a good price on good timing than good negotiation.

And the question came up on Twitter yesterday.  Who do you think is the most successful current day domain investor.  The person that is making the most and hustling the most on a daily basis today. Not the biggest portfolio but buying and selling the most names.  Two people came up.  Braden Pollock and Andrew Rosener.   Andrew is in the public eye so on the surface he is easily the biggest and best.  But there are others that do a ton of sales that don’t want any publicity.   People like Braden and Adam Strong.   Who would your vote be?  Mine is easily with Andrew but I’m sure there are some people killing it that I don’t know about.

PS:  I am going to be traveling across the country for a few days taking my daughter to college so my response time may be limited and a few lists a little shorter than normal over the weekend.

Here are today’s names. Click through to see the current price

Quote of the Day:  “I’m a kind person, I’m kind to everyone, but if you are unkind to me, then kindness is not what you’ll remember me for”  -Al Capone

Domain of the Day:          Hot market. GD gives it a $6500 value

 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   The kind of name you’ll see on the side of a HVAC company’s truck.  14 bidders and taken in 10 other extensions    Lead gen will never go away.  There just more opportunity in them now.  No reserve    Perfect marketing name for someone who does them.  Best value on the board IMO   Has a chance to meet reserve   Good solar name    No bids.   Upgrade name.  Wanna bet it goes to a seafood place?

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  It’s a real fish.  I guess it could be a brand  There are some great .info names up for auction today.  .info still has value.  Even if its less than it was at its peak a few years ago  Another    All the .info are going to need buildouts but this one is a pretty good geo  A bit generic but GD and lots of bidders like it  AAA and A-1 were popular names because they would put you at the front of the phone book.  Which was super important back in the day.  PBO Phone Book Optimization The price is so high because you’re buying history.   Old website with some historic value    With the price drops its more like a get together. Has a few bids  Upgrade name for a few entities  At $4K because it was an old website.  “Uncovering the best coupons & deals from 1000’s of online retailers   How much you think a triple 9 is worth?  I’ll give you a hint ….a lot   Another coin name kills it     and          Reunion site all the way    Love it.  Not sure if it works. I just love needles   Safaris can costs thousands of dollars.  Would be a great marketing name for those that offer then and a small price to pay vs revenue      There were times back in the day where people were talking bitcoin backed Credit cards

Godaddy Domains With No Bids    Nice name for a dispensary/canna store.  No bids at $20 Can’t believe somebody hasn’t already made this a brand  Pretty big geographically area. I think its big and popular enough to give the dot net value.  20 years old One bid.  Good rehab or sports product company name No bidders.  Pretty good autonomous driving name for $12  Worth looking at just because its two short words What a difference.  Doesn’t even have a bid now and a few years ago this could have gone for more than $500 pretty easily  I feel like I already have an all weather jacket of this brand
