Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday August 12th , 2018


I don’t understand why domain investors get offended when someone sends in a low offer for a domain.  Just because most people don’t understand that domains have a high resale value there is no reason to berate them.  And even if the do. You own the domain.  It’s yours.  There is zero reason to lecture someone on the value of domains. Simply point them to Namebio and let it go. Put your energy and effort into something more positive.  You don’t have to sell it to them and they don’t have to buy it.  If they want to tell me the price is stupid, I still own the domain and its both our losses.  I will never sell the name if they are correct and they will never get the name they want.  That’s not going to change with harsh words.

For every lowball offer I get, there are responses from professional domain investors that give me a quote 10 times the going rate.  Just making a number up.  You can see why a buyer gets pissed when so many domainers pull numbers out of their ass based on hope and what we think its worth.   Often with no real comps. Zero reason for pricing other that grabbing straws.  They’ll throw me a comp that is nowhere near their domain’s value to a company to market their wares. So many other choices at that price and lower.   Using the same reasoning above I never ask them why they think its worth their price.  It doesn’t matter.  I simply leave an offer and they can think about it.    No use in telling them they are reaching, it’s theirs to reach with.

Have a great Sunday.  Here are today’s names. Click through to see the current price

Quote of the Day:  “A lot of people would rather understand the market than make money” Ed Seykota

Domain of the Day:      This one is going to do well.  Still a little bitcoin money out there. I think four figures ….maybe


 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   No bids.     People are certainly thinking about them. Up OR Down   Travel company marketing name all the way   It worked for TaxSlayer    Trading or forex name.  No bids  Color+Animal   Nice clothing or fashion brand.  No bids

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  1998 domain.   I am a fan of almost any that ends in C   Same here but the NY for New York adds tons of value  5L getting some pretty good bids   I know what they are and a few bidders think they have enough sales to warrant a standalone domain    Godaddy likes it, bidders like it.  Me?  meh   A tea bowl in Japan.  Getting some good bids as a brand based on the word   Plenty of architects in DC    Gotta keep moving  Most bids on the GD board today   Pattern looks like its going to get to $3K   Memorable, short, and easy to type   It’s definitely where music is right now


Godaddy Domains With No Bids  Upgrade name for a few companies. Great name for windshield repair.  No bids  sounds like a fashion line.  At $17 at press time  Upgrade name for a lot of places  A name I let expire.  Unless it gets bids and then I’ll renew. First time I’ve actually seen my name come through although I know they all do   There are enough pizza places to give this some value  Would think you could get a little out of this for a marketing name  Surprised this has no bids   Easiest logo in the group  A cross of indica.  But also a former site with some traffic

      Yeah .. I think Tilted Moon falls in that “Butterscotch Pudding” category (Domain Sherpa reference) where it’s super difficult to let it drop. A name you like .. but as a domainer with more experience than when you bought it, would probably not buy it today … but still hard to let it drop given the prior investment.
      There were no bids on the domain the day before auction .. but there was one bid at some point between yesterday and 10am today (was it you Tom? lol). Not sure if there were more bids or where it ended up .. but I’m curious now!?
