Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday April 28th, 2019

I’ve never quite understood why online based companies that are worth 100 million dollars or more can’t have a coding team that can keep their sites bug free and up to date.  Travis, the IT master of DSAD can tell you better than anyone how bad some of the coding and functionality of the big domain sites.  Probably the best coded site in our industry is Uniregistry.  Unfortunately their prices and overall support just don’t compete with Godaddy so it goes wasted.   As a brokerage and marketplace they are great and their site is smooth and user friendly.   Godaddy is OK but they seem to be constantly trying to rebuild a site that was built in cold war Russia.  Its getting better every day but still has a few flaws.  Namejet.  Poor Namejet.   I know from inside information they have a new team and are working on it.  Expect some big changes in the future.  Hoping that user generated listings is one of the big additions.

PS:  Miracles do happen.  Sold another .ws. for $1000.  Only about 27K more to go and I’ll be even

Here are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD keep on keeping on

  1. I’m in the alarm/security industry for one of the top 5 biggest national companies in the industry. We have a new CEO and he wants to re-brand our company name. I told him about the domain name PremiumSecurity .com about a week ago (expires today) and that it might be a great chance to get it for less than retail prices. He asked me about how much it would go for at the end of the auction and I said maybe $1,500-2,000? (Just threw out a guess) He couldn’t believe a domain would go for this much and said we’d just get an alternative name or a .net at that price point. So, we make millions every month, but we aren’t willing to pay for a great domain like this when we’re trying to re-brand apparently…it’s so frustrating when people just don’t get it.

    1. exactly – it is crazy how much companies will spend for a single commercial to brand themselves but not want to spend on the brand itself. Madness.

      1. It bugs me so much Travis…especially as one of the leaders in the industry that blows through tens of thousands of dollars daily on things we don’t need. They won’t go for a premium domain name, but last week they did approve 2 additional vending machines for the offices! lol

  2. Changing code is not easy for larger companies. This is the reason why .brands have not come to market. It’s not just a simple find and replace like a spreadsheet.

    When you have transactional databases on back end connect with presentation/functionality of front end you often have problems. Most if not all big sites use proprietary code. When this code was written 10, 15, 20 years ago they didn’t plan for a lot of these new functionalities.

    Additionally they didn’t anticipate the rise of mobile. Large companies at first used two separate code bases for desktop and mobile. Then migrated to responsive design.

    It’s not a coincidence that the biggest companies like amazon, eBay, godaddy, etc still look the same way they did 20 years ago.

    It’s not that these companies don’t want to fix bugs and innovate user experience. It’s often limitations in legacy code base that make it almost impossible.

  3. It’s such a pleasure having my names Uni, too bad about the pricing. I’ve already moved a hundred out in recent months. I still use their market and I hope they ditch their subscription discounts someday.
