Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday October 26th, 2018

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. and  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 went to the owners of 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. Click through to see the current price


Quote of the Day:   There is only one way to avoid criticism: Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing”  -Elbert Hubbard.

 Domain of the Day:   

 Namejet and Sedo Names and Others  Already has 39 bids.  Solid name for any type of conversion site.  12 years old    Could be used for a car review site or selling the cars themselves.  Looks like a few bidders love the name  At $44,000 so there is a chance this makes reserve.  Here are some Namebio comps to check against     All you can eat for a high reserve   I think this would make a good edibles name.    3 bidders  No bidders.  Wedding photography comes to mind first  Only four bidders.  Hot topic right now in the US.  Or you can just sell them here  Perfect for someone in our industry  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


Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Anyone care about politics anymore?  Hockey or whisky  and    Two LLLL.coms with good letters  Please don’t.  Maybe CBD oil   Flash is dead but this one will mean quick, not a programming language  Locally sourced is something you hear in a lot of marketing.  Top number of bids on the GD board  GD gives this the highest value  of all the names up for auction today


Godaddy Domains With No Bids   With all the privacy issues going on, this is a very timely name  Two known words.  Not sure they go together but always good to start with simple words  I said don’t buy Z names BUT for $12 I think it would be a good risk/reward  Because you’re not going to buy   Stitch Fix type name Because they need a place to BBQ too  A last name and a nice sounding brand.  Some will see a typo of superhero but I think Super Her is a good girl power brand I could hear this being advertised on Sirius radio

  1. You have to be careful to not overpay. You can always find raid jams after I drop.Hand regged after a drop a few days ago. Patients patients patients.

    1. Jeff, I agree with you, I think
      I think you might have still been asleep typing your comment 🙂 ,
      Raid Jams
      Drop/Hand Regging is called Hand Catching. Why won’t people use that term? it’s perfect.
      and what do people under the care of a medical professional have to do with anything? lol. Just busting your chops
      Anyone can find great deals if you take the time. If you don’t have the time you have to pay more for the obvious, easy to find, good names. But you only overpay if you lose money, time, and or gain no benefits from the experience.
      Godaddy is a different kind of animal. Their valuations drive a lot of sales (good and bad for investors) and are another metric to find names of value.

  2. Shane, you are the man! Screw anyone who shames you or criticizes you. For every loser who criticizes you, there are a hundred who appreciate and admire you. We dont always write it so you might not see the perspective.

  3. I hope you do a follow up on and in a couple weeks. I would be surprised if they went to prominent domainers or end users. Those are not in the same league as and FWIW, my comment yesterday was not a criticism of any single domain investor so no one should take it personally.
