Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday January 7th, 2019

Jan 07 2019

I was looking at my domains from 10 years ago.  I had officially been in the domain business for almost a year.  I started with money I made selling a blog to Lionsgate Films and Break Media.  I say I have never put a money from my “regular” money into domain investing but officially you could say that I started with $5K.  Of the money I made on the blog sale I set aside $5K for domains.  The rest I put into Apple Stock ($25K in 2008 worked out well) , bought a nice car, a nice Tri bike, and invested in a startup  (which I ended up with an 8X return) .  As for domains, I concentrated on short names because that is what I was in to at the time (I read Reece Berg’s blog every day).   The turning point would be later when I would starting buying and selling 4N.coms.  I found an excel sheet cleaning out my computer that had all my domains that I had in Feb of 2009 and it was a trip down memory lane.  I will post the sheet Wed (on other computer at work) but I will give you a few takeaways from my domain investing 10 years ago

  1.  I bought a lot of for $8 and the rest for $60 so while I didn’t lose any money , none of them made me rich
  2. I still have a lot of those names so they are all $80 more expensive making them even less valuable
  3. The names I sold paid for all of the names and their renewals so my first year wasn’t so bad
  4. I overpaid for 5L brandables.  You’ll see the names but I paid $700 for Koosy dot com 10 years ago.  Wouldn’t have to pay too much more now
  5. I had very little chance of selling any of the names for big money because they were all and brandables.  No generics or keywords
  6. I completely skipped the parking names.  I was buying brandables when everyone else was keyword and trying to make parking.
  7. I don’t think I sold one name the first year.  But I never added any more money besides that $5K.
  8. I started blogging to try make more money to buy names because I didn’t want to put in money but I was addicted to buying names
  9. I didn’t make enough money in 2009 blogging to pay for my Internet, let alone domain names
  10. the game changed for me in 2009 when I started buying NNNN.coms.   With those sales I was able to buy better names and make enough to do this part time for full time money

See how shitty that story is without domain names and prices.  I am going to post this exact same thing and add the list of names. You’ll see how much better talking about domain names with real names and prices is compared to leaving out the only stuff readers want to know.

One last thing.  Roll Tide Roll and too bad for the Bears.  They deserve a better kicker.

Quote of the Day: “Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder

Domain of the Day:  Still billions of dollars being spent on token trading.  5 years old


Namejet, Sedo, and other Names Up for Auction   The acronym for an English Language test for the state of California.  Operates on the dot org.  Met reserve     14 years old.   38 bids.   Medical term for something we’ve all had  South Eastern Great Lakes, School for Ethic and Global Leadership.  South Eastern Golf League   Upgrade name for several companies  Met reserve so its going to change hands.   And it looks like its going to the Caymans   Upgrade name for many.  The most obvious being the takeout company FoodAway but operates on the domain    There is Hailan account again sitting right at the front of the 75,000 -$100,000 reserve.  At first I was thinking that bidding is getting close and then I realized it was Hailan propping up the price   Many places named this  but the reserve is a little high for me.  Maybe you’ll like it  The center of the net on a dot net.  Media Options wanted it more than the front of the reserve marking Hailan account    Could be a site selling them or a brand that makes them   Look at Hailan here.


Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids   Pretty sure they have cleaning companies in Arizona   Its all about eco and organic   Going to remind people of Reddit.  I thinking weddings as well  The Roman God the represented Honor.  At $1700 at press time   Xander is a first and last name so it will be a brand  20 years old and 28 bids   Under $200 at press time which is a good price.  I think under $250 would be nice.  My opinion only. Don’t buy anything based on my opinion or you will end up broke and will have to take a job at NamePros for $8 an hour writing “bump” after every domain name post  Buying history and backlinks  The three 8s gets you the highest price on the board


Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids Cannabis seeds.   Grow your own  No bids on this  Sounds like a place to arrange reunions or a contact board for classmates  Get weed or weed news here  Would have loved for a girl to give me this email back in the day.  Now I assume she is a prostitute since I’m old  Nobody in the grocery store has this  The two Gs makes it seem even more thuggish  I agree Pop Up Art is better but artist like to mix things up  Probably not the best brand to build a company around but its memorable  you know I like energy name.  Definitely that  Good name for a vegetable supplier  Not a lot of value but the security industry may like it

      Huh? You mean Keith’s article the other day. Sorry. I didn’t realize there was an embargo on articles about names we bought in the past. I’ll make sure to cancel the follow up article. Again, sorry about that

        Yes his article, but that’s not what I meant. When I read this line “See how shitty that story is without domain names and prices” I thought you were poking fun at his article because he didn’t have names or prices either.

        Definitely don’t cancel the follow up article. To the presses!

        This is why I should never respond so snarky. Totally a misunderstanding. I can honestly say I in no way even thought of Keith’s article. I thought his was fantastic because he gave great info. How he sold it and where. That is as valuable if not more valuable than the prices themselves. People want to know where domains sell and he gave answers. My info is not nearly as valuable. Just showing where I was in domain investing 10 years ago.

        My final comments were more to articles that say about selling a name and give zero details. No names, no price, not even where. Might as well say they drove to the grocery store. Just as interesting
