Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday September 24th, 2018

Sep 24 2018

When I went to my first domain show it was a TRAFFIC show run by Rick Latona.  I’ve told this story a million times.  I was new to domain investing.  I didn’t know a soul.  I was a little nervous but I was there to learn and meet people.  I can tell you the LEAST friendly, least hospitable, people at that show were the people that ran it.  The owners and the people in charge.  They could care less if I was there.  They were there to hang with their friends and make some money selling domains at auction. I was a ghost even when I tried to introduce myself.   But yet I came out of that show crazy pumped about the industry.

The reason Richard Lau’s NamesCon became so popular is he DID care about who came and that they had a good time.  It was done on the cheap so everyone could afford to attend. If they wanted to make it nicer or more fun they could go out do it to whatever level their finances would allow.  But he wanted everyone in the industry to have a chance to come to a conference.

Back to my first Traffic.  I had a great time because I met Steve Brown from Namejet, Chef Patrick, Morgan Linton, Oscar Correa, Ron Wells.   We drank and shared information all week.  I came out of that show feeling I could make some money in this industry.  Not because of the organizers catering to the big boys, but because the “others” .  And to that group I will forever be grateful.   I came to a later TRAFFIC show in Vegas and this time I brought my Mom.

This time everyone was extremely nice.  I was a little more known because of the blog. And I could care less what people thought about me bringing my Mom.  She deserves a good time and I figured a domain conference in Vegas would be a good time.   Alan Dunn and Greg McNair were especially kind to my Mom and that too I won’t forget.   The conflicting part of all of it was Adam Dicker was the nicest person at the conference to her.  Always making sure she got a chair, a drink, and had someone to talk to if I was away.   I was really upset that he turned out to be a crook because he really had been nothing but kind to me over the years.  I also realized that TRAFFIC was done.  Barely anyone there and the talks were absolutely terrible.  But again, the people that I learn from were there and the information and stories once again flowed freely.

Now 10 years later I have a nice little portfolio.  I’ve made a ton of mistakes but I have made enough good decisions that I have a few hundred grand auction value worth of names.  Now people say I am in that club and have advantages.  I don’t know how to take it.  I just hope it doesn’t mean they think I am better than any other domain investor or that I would treat people like I was when I was ignored at my first conference.  Absolutely not.  I smile and talk to every single person at the conferences that comes up to me.  Yes, I agree with many ,  I’m not a fan of people that write advice who hide their portfolio under privacy and have a terrible portfolio.    You can report news without a portfolio but you can’t tell me what to do and not to do when you are sitting on poor names.    Other than that I encourage people to do whatever they think they can do to make money in this industry.  All I want is them to share and to put their name next to their statements.  People love success stories and even more they love crash and burn.  We learn from both.  And I really don’t care about what level of domain investing you are.  As long as you’re happy with it. It doesn’t effect me at all.  It’s not my money or my portfolio.  I’m here to share my journey, not guide or label yours.   PS:  I haven’t been lonely one single day in domaining since that first show.  I now have great partners in this thing and dozens of friends that I can share things with all day.  You’re only lonely if you want to be lonely. Here are today’s names. Click through to see the current price


Quote of the Day:  “Men are not against you, they are merely for themselves.”   -Gene Fowler

Domain of the Day:   Top name on the list today if you go by number of bids and price.  1996 birthday


 Namejet and Sedo Names and Others   This name is KILLING it.    22 years old and $36,000 estibot   Being bid on like its a pronounceable.  Getting close to reserve…………I think  Only a few bids.   This is a job.  Managing the finances of athletes and teams  Great letters.  No.  A high school is not going to buy this.  1996 domain  An expiry name so it will sell     1997 domain.   If you want something better than a good chair

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   22 years old.  So many good uses for this one.  Old barns, barn finds on cars, barn wood  You could make a whole site where people can make countdown clocks to embed in their site  A city of 34K in Alabama and a nice sounding brand.  But price is a bit much for a made up brand  Marketing name for a collision repair company ?  I like this one much more than any company with the word canna in it   Good home tech name  Not an amazing name but getting bids because its a color and a two word short brand   Marketing name all the way.   Already hit four figures.  But many things do in today’s market   Because you know there are a lot of sports that have or will have a Memphis Open  These R names continue to do well 10 years after they were all the rage   Even .net first names sell for three figures    Green as in money or environment………or plants    I guess it could also be NYCLoud as well.  Probably not as good that way  Girls names always seem to do well

Godaddy Domains With No Bids  Not sure Disney will let you keep this one   Not worth anything but sure is memorable  Hundreds of thousands of backlinks and some months traffic   Nice brand.  Sounds like a type of maple  Easy logo on this one  I know my daughter would have bought anything made by Squishy Farm  Best Rotor Rooter service name ever.  “I SAID BoWl Job!!!!!!” Godaddy has this valued at $4700.  Bidders have it valued at $12  You can smell this district.  No bids
