Every day is an exciting day in the world of domain investing. Some fantastic criticism of what I do here yesterday. Some warranted. And that’s life. If you put yourself out there then you have to be able to take the pats on the back, and the punches to the face. Especially after you swing. And I swung and I will swing again. I’ve been open and honest from day one and will take any criticism that comes as a result. That’s how life works. But lets move on to something more exciting.
I bid on two domains at Godaddy yesterday. Quazz.com and Komto.com. Two names that would have been $30 to $50 a few years ago. Per usual I was the second highest bid. Who knows how hight they would have gone if I kept going but they went for $260 and $333 respectively. Commenters said it was stupid low end domain investors bidding up the names, but I think that’s not entirely true. Look where the domains land. Its pretty easy. Just go to the domains you bid on a few weeks later and see. Its all over the board. NameBright, larger portfolio holders, and others. For instance SharkJuice.com went to the owners of Juice.com. Hydrogrow.com went to Bill Patterson. Neither seem like stupid domainers to me. And stupid isn’t relegated to domainers, there’s plenty of that in every aspect of the Internet.
And finally, someone called me “over the hill”. Just when I get in the best shape of my life someone age shames me. My recent 3:06 marathon and 1:26 half marathon just can’t make up for the hurtful words. Here are today’s names. A bit short today but just didn’t see many I liked.

Domain of the Day:
Namejet and Sedo Names and Others
YouConvert.com Already has 39 bids. Solid name for any type of conversion site. 12 years old
TopCars.com Could be used for a car review site or selling the cars themselves. Looks like a few bidders love the name
SuperBuffet.com All you can eat for a high reserve
LeafFood.com I think this would make a good edibles name. 3 bidders
SpecialShots.com No bidders. Wedding photography comes to mind first
AssaultWeapons.com Only four bidders. Hot topic right now in the US. Or you can just sell them here
DomainPlace.com Perfect for someone in our industry
LVJobs.com As an employer I will say that right now I have had a harder time finding employers than any other time in 30 years. And pretty much every business owner I’ve talked to has said the same thing. Las Vegas has an incredible need for service workers. Pretty good name for under $500 IMO
