I talked about it on the Sherpa Show the other day but not sure anyone is watching or listening to them lately so I’ll tell the story again. I only have about 500 names and I try and keep them all at Godaddy to make things easier to manage. There are a few at some other registrars but I tend to move them as soon as I’m able. While going through the auctions list I saw that a lot of the LNN are really getting great prices. The last few I sold this summer reached great prices. Pretty much all over $5000 and even $7500 at a regular Godaddy auction. But the first few went for a few thousand. I was looking back and wishing I had waited. Which is pretty much the case for all my domains I sold at auction. The one I really wished I hadn’t sold was L22 dot com. Short repeater with a double 2. I went to see how much I had sold it for and couldn’t find it. I looked through all my emails and nothing. I looked at my auction accounts. Nothing. I looked in my Godaddy account and it wasn’t there so I just needed to find out when I sold it. I remembered selling it but forgot the details.
Turns out I had the domain at Uniregistry and never sold it. I don’t have very many names there and I never check it. It was pretty much found money because I thought it was gone. Of course its not really found money because I paid for the name so it was actually lost money until I found the name. But it was money I didn’t expect. Like the hundred dollars in your jacket from last winter. The money was yours all along but you were doing just fine without it and now you get $100 to play with. In this case I’m not sure what I’m going to get but as you’ll see below, its now up for auction. For real this time
