Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday, December 21st, 2020

I’m not going to lie, there are days I feel like we are all wasting our time writing a domain list and sharing stories. The industry is so small. The amount of readers, podcasts listens, overall engagement is literally in the hundreds. It’s also a cycle of in and out of new investors and people that give up or get bored and get out. I can’t tell you how many times I hear someone saying they are going to do this or do that and while I wish them success, I know it’s probably not going to work because I’ve seen it before many times. They aren’t bringing anything different to the table than the last person. I try not to be negative Nelly, but it’s tough to cheer and congratulate someone on baby steps when I know that they’ve only seen the easy part. Success is not that difficult in domain investing. Long term, consistent success, is not. The same goes for blogging, writing domain lists. How many have come and gone? A lot. There are 50 other things that one could do that are a better use of time.

I personally stick with it because its my diary and I know that people enjoy it. I don’t need comments to make me feel good. I have plenty of family and friends that do an amazing job of making me feel loved and wanted. It spurs my creativity, it forces me to look through all expiring domains each and every day. If I get paid $20 for something I was going to do anyway then it’s a bonus. Namejet, Sedo,, Godaddy and make it worth while. It so happens they are the tools and sites I use every day and you should too. If you aren’t checking or using them you are not as good of a domain investor as you could be.

We have written 8467 articles in 12 years. We have missed posting this list less than 10 times in a decade. 10 F’n times. That consistency makes me proud. It’s the backbone of every question I ask myself in regards to taking something on. Are you willing to put in time every….single….day? Because if you’re not, then its not going to end up being as good as it could be. There will be a competitor that will put in the time and beat your ass.

No need to comment or congratulate, I only ask you keep coming back and if you see a name you like, buy it. The time will come where I’ll end doing the list. I imagine someone else will take it one. That day is coming sooner than later. In the meantime we’ll try and keep the stories coming.

Domain of the Day: “Computer” in Spanish Bigger name than the price reflects IMO

Quote of the Day: “You want something accomplished? Give it to a busy man”:

Remember to click the links to see the current prices and if you are going to pay for a name do it while visiting It pays for the gas to run the ship. Names at Auction or Available for Pickup Gloves are off for this one Doesn’t pas the radio test but its still a nice add IMO Just because you are done with 8s doesn’t mean China is Ends early tomorrow so get your bids in early Only four of the directions available in the whole world

Namejet and Sedo & More Domains at Action Under $10K is a good buy IMO. If you are a dot co person then this has to make you drool Ends today. Great crypto brand Also ends today. Exudes calm I think dot nets provide such a great value right now. Make the buys your own, not on my thoughts . has been a good investment over the years Taken in 151 extensions. That’s usually good enough in dot io Sounds like a tool or app and those work with well dot io Sounds like a dating site Two first names always make a good brand Porn, drinking, or immigration Ends today. Clean it up

Godaddy Domains With Bids Every sporting event I’ve ever been too shows this on the media board in the stadium. Also the top number of bids on the board today. Not much to say. It’s a Not many are up for sale and this is an expiry name but people are selling in China to raise money to put into bitcoin. BTC has been much better return than numerics this year Design your new, socially spaced office super long but one of the faster growing markets I think we’re seeing it right now. Tons of pregnancies. I see more kids at the nursery than I ever have. And it may only be my perception but the average kids per family looks higher too 21 years old but only taken in 4 extensions Online prescription fills Taken in 20 extensions and 22 years old. I’m all for nonsmoking but not sure the use I see online education but I always see online education. and Have to be a little careful on trademarks but they look pretty specific so you could probably stay in the fitness category I don’t have any geo service names but I did pretty well with them 7 or 8 years ago. Taken in 15 extensions and registered for 19 years would be wise to add this to their domain list. They’re crushing it so a small price to pay Good value here IMO. Solid security company name or just for marketing NLL are a good store of value in domains IMO Would obviously rather have StartSmart but not bad at this price Another one of those ing names that doesn’t really work for me “Let us earn our stripes” Works in the stay at home times we’re in Wrong spelling of Kudos but could make it work with a whitten of marketing money

Godaddy Domains with One or No Bids

  1. It’s true that the domain industry is pretty small. I don’t think it will get ever become mainstream. It’s hard to monetize a service unless almost everyone in the industry uses it (blogs are hard to monetize regardless). But that’s fine with me, it’s already competitive enough!

    One thing I’ve noticed is that when Shane posts his lists, there are a lot of names that get bid through the roof. When Ike posts his lists (which doesn’t have the commentary usually) a bunch of pretty decent gems always fall to close outs. What gives here?

    1. Bar,

      Josh’s no bid list is usually much larger than mine. Mine is always 7-20 names deep. His is 30 plus. He has a different domaining style and sees value in things I don’t so it’s hard for me to put things on the list I think are a waste of money. He doesn’t think they are so you get more depth. As for higher prices. Not sure. If we both put the same names on the list I’m not sure my style makes it go higher but I have always felt giving a little personality to the name gives it a better chance

    2. No kidding haha. When I find good names on the lists a few days before they drop, I always cross my fingers Shane doesn’t talk about / list them on here.

  2. Strategy question:

    If a name already has some bids and will show up on someone filtering by price / bids- do you think it is best to put a fairly big offer in early to push up the price, or do you like to jump into the game with 5 minutes left?

    The 5 minutes left strategy in this scenario seems like it is more likely to get someone to keep bidding in the heat of the moment. Where they may not ever get in if they see the name high with 4 hours left

    1. G,

      Definitely wait until the end. Gives people less time to react to your bid. The biggest bidders all use API and programs to manage their bidding. So you are not going to influence an algorithm that’s been set up a certain way. It will catch your bids regardless of when you are putting them in. What you are hoping for is someone is reactionary bidding and your bids go in late and they went to bathroom or ran an errand and missed the last minute rise over their proxy. Happens all the time.
