Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday August 23rd, 2019

I brought up two questions on twitter yesterday. One, why would a domain investor want privacy on their domain names? Only two answers that came back were legit. One. If you are trying to acquire names that are singular/plural or near versions of a certain name. You don’t want to tip people off. Two, to avoid spam. I understand the spam part but its a pretty fair trade off to enable people to easily make offers on your name. A store on a busy street draws more lookers and people that don’t buy, but its worth it for the added foot traffic IMO. But I also understand that if you put a lander on the domain name then who cares if you have privacy.

My second tweet stated that if you are going to call yourself an “expert” in domain investing and write and advise others, you should feel comfortable posting your top names. At least your top 25. If you can’t produce 25 good names you can’t be an expert. Unless you sold your 25 good names and are resting on the big bankroll from the sales.

Andrew Alleman called me out (not in an offensive way) so I posted a few of my favorite names. I’ve been doing it for 10 years, I better have a decent portfolio. It’s not as good as many but I do this on the side and am not able to put the time in to be at the top of the game. But I’m happy with it and feel I could stop now and get a quarter of a million dollars at auction. Not a pretend number that someone would offer, but liquid cash. It took me a while to get it right but all my names over the last 3 years are names I could turn around and sell. Maybe not for the same as I paid for them but that minus commission. And all of them have become more valuable with time. Good names purchased in the past are worth more. Even my Especially the ones I bought in Jan Feb. All worth double. To me that says a lot about your names. While I appreciate all the tweet responses from others showing their top names, there were a large majority that would receive no bids at auction. Nobody would bid $69 on them at Namejet. That’s not where you want to be with your top 10. And yes we all have names that sell for good money that wouldn’t get a bid at auction. But those are your fill not your best.

Domain of the Day: Wow name getting a wow price

Namejet, Sedo, Snap, and other Names Up for Auction Online is where all the action happens in the search process now. 1995 name 23 year old brand Upgrade name for a few dozen companies 5L with only two bidders at press time Dot cc is a hard sell but they do sell. Has to be a one word like this though Not sure how to use this but certainly memorable and a term you see all the time on a door VIP money is big money Pakastani name and I’m sure a few other Middle Eastern countries as well Reserve is below $25K for this one. More Chinese than Western Met reserve at $1700. It will probably do well because a lot of bidders above $1300 Good letters, no reserve Doesn’t mean anything to me but no bids at $79 and semi short Another one, although the spellcheck is going to put “eggs” in it every time Get rid of those Chinese symbols that spell “Flowery Rat” instead of “Peace and Love”. No bids Strong dot io. Has a nice first bid No bids and a $100 reserve. Worth $100

Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids Somebody will spend some bitcoin on this This is my middle name Great letters, ends in C. That’s enough for me Dozens of places that already have this name and probably more to come I saw this and hoped nobody would want the .net. Wrong Good enough pattern that even I pay attention Blockchain name and yes I still hate dot co. But I’m smart enough to know I can sell some to people that like it Because sometimes you have to give a little you time Because nobody is buying cars Already at $2K. I never underestimate financial names. Good name for a billion dollar company cash app is doing well so maybe StashApp isn’t too bad Not sure this is a good fit for dot org but worth looking at Memorable and under $100. One of the 3 brand sites may take it If you haven’t had some of this salty tuna you’re missing out I passed on this originally and then googled it and saw all the results. People love their closets The name of a type of drug treatment. Godaddy highly values it

  1. I know you said I didn’t call you out in an offensive way, but just to be clear, I was genuinely interested in seeing your current top 10 list. You’ve shared some before (including on my podcast) and I was curious if there were new ones.
