Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday February 1st, 2019

One thing I didn’t mention is I believe that DSAD has now completed 3 years without missing a Daily List.  That’s over 1000 consecutive domain lists.  It actually could be longer but I know that since Josh, Travis and I have been together we have never missed a day.  I know I had missed less than ten days in the 5 years before that.   So missing 10 days in 2800 is a pretty strong percentage as well.   So regardless of what someone thinks about quality the quality of our lists and posts they have to give us some award regarding consistency.

I hadn’t had a chance to talk much about the live NamesCon auction but now that I’m home I can put a little more thought in to it.  I think it went very very well. JT and Monte did a good job.  My concern about high reserve names taking too long was unwarranted.   Some big names did sell and the overall totals were exactly what a person putting on an auction wanted.  For the most part the Namejet platform held strong without a bug which was good because I would say half of the live attendees were actually bidding online instead of with their paddles.  But there were a few opportunities to improve the auction.

  1.  Sending out the list of the names chosen for the live auction just a few hour ahead of time was a bit ridiculous IMO.  Plenty of time to get that together and get it out several days ahead
  2. If you are going to lower a reserve on a name during an auction.  Announce it.  Names like OL and sold below auction reserve and nobody in the audience knew the reserve had been lowered.
  3. The auction was geared for the big money players.  The only lower value names were junk new Gs.  I think they could have put in a few dozen names that would have allowed some mid four figure and lower five figure people to play along

And finally.  I didn’t pay for NamesCon so I have no complaints.  I had a great time this year.  There was only one NamesCon sponsored after hours event with no other sponsored social this year.   I could be wrong but pretty sure almost all sessions were volunteers and no money went towards speakers.    For me personally, it was a fantastic event but I had lots of outside entertainment and meals that I paid for a business partner was nice enough to pick up the check. The most important part of any conference is that everyone has a great time.  And at $199 for tickets you absolutely can’t offer more than NamesCon did.  I’m merely saying that if the tickets are going to be higher in the future there will have to be additions to the conference to justify it and vice versa.  But again, overall, great time and glad to be home after being away for so long.  Here are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD continue writing each day.

Domain of the Day:   Keep an eye on your shipments

Namejet, Sedo, and other Names Up for Auction     Good name for publishing on creative writing.  4 bids but under $50 at press time   Met reserve at $180.    M for management   Not a big .co person but its for auction and some readers are     Has four bids and met reserve   A Sedo expiring name.  Has a bid. A name     You know exactly what the site is going to provide    Pronounceable 4L is always a nice add.   A Boston Norm  Reserve is under $500 so it will probably sell   My guess is this would be a political name  I imagine someone in our industry might want this   Reserve is low enough that this is probably going to sell.  Pronounceable too    Officially this has become the most auctioned name in the history of names.  Its been up for auction over 1000 times in what seems like a decade.  Not even going to link because I want the streak to continue


Goddy Domains With Multiple Bids  Most bids on the GD board today  Highest price on the GD board today.  Millennial’s are big into food   Highest value on the board according to GD.  I didn’t even know what it was. Turns out its a shoe that mostly Brits know    Exudes fresh and organic.  Even if it isn’t  Get it. Opposite of Breaking Bad  Nano is a crypto coin.  That’s why there are so many Google results  Nothing more precious than your baby.   And we have no problem spending on them    Good brand for something online.  Or for Adam  Nice  getting a few bids.    Ha vah   I see this one as a gambling name  Everything becomes easier when you make a game out of it  A first name  Not going to get this one for $15 any more.  Into 3 figures already  Sounds techy to me

The 4L.coms   “Causes”.  I know, pushing it


Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids  Baby mama.   Upgrade name for a few foreign companies  One bid.   The kind of name you have to have a lot of and hope that enough of them sell to pay renewals.  I think this is worth an add.   My opinion only.  Don’t buy based on it  Going to be a nasal spray  The kind of names that seem to sell on Brandbucket  Great name for a toothpaste or rinse 100% will get taken.   I love the Spearmint Rhino   A brand and they may not even dry anything
