Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday June 10th , 2018

Jun 10 2018

The upgrade.  That’s been my domain business model for the last decade.  Sell a name and replace that name with a better name than the name sold.  If you can’t, then you didn’t get enough for the name.  That’s the model. That’s it.  My next model is to sell names for enough money to buy a replacement AND put a bunch of extra money into the bank.  I’m not there yet.  That will probably take another decade.

I wish I could provide details on my recent upgrade but the buy isn’t quite complete yet. Its a MUCH better name than the name sold.  I’ll reveal the details next time I’m on Sherpa.  But the name sold is a name that is pretty specific to the person that bought it.  It was purchased for only $12 and sold for low four figures.  I then turned around and bought a domain at auction that has a much broader appeal.  Giving me a lot better chance of getting me more money for it.  It’s all about the amount of potential buyers.  If a name only has a few and is very specific it generally isn’t worth as much.

On a side note, its great that they were able to have another Domaining Europe but it does show just how small our industry is. There were less than 75 people in the photos.  We had 150 people show up for $100 bus tour of a garden with lunch.  Our industry will continue to get smaller as the original domain investors cash out, the big companies eat the smaller guys, new domain investors struggle to make money, and the other investment opportunities return better returns. I don’t see the trend reversing any time soon.  Which is fine for me because I have been doing just fine. Less people leaves more inventory and I only need other investors in the sell auctions. They are in my way in the buy side.  The real money doesn’t involve them because end users are the larger sales.  Things will change in time but I won’t pretend to know when or what the change will be.   Here are today’s domains.  Hope you find a good one.

Domain of the Day:         Would be a heck of buy at $12.  Exudes long lasting

 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   Nice blockchain name on a tld for startups.  NO bids     One of the most prescribed medicines in the world.   2 bidders   Met reserve at $69  Getting close to $50K   Billions of dollars doing exactly this each day  look at the reserve to see the fantasy world so many domain investors live in

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Gorilla has become more popular than monkey brands but this is a pretty good one   1996 birthday.  Not the vampire. He’s a few hundred years old   Tech company that went bankruptcy  Great letters, ends in C.  Going to do much better than a normal with vowels  Old website with good backlinks for those chem trail believers  We still doing soft names?   Haven’t seen any new companies using them  The four figure bids are buying history and backlinks.  Not a good domain name  Performance management.  Getting the most out of less has to happen with more jobs than employees available right now  sounds trashy but we know that there are millions looking for one  Most bids on the GD board today  Probably going to be a running site.  Semi famous site called totally runable even though its really spelled runnable   Popular party.  Bring in a truck loaded with awesome video games    Dash cam all the way   Bring on the corn   Decent .me name.  Dot me lost a little lustre but works in the call to action names   Bad Kids game, good crypto name Met reserve at $925  Records are super popular again.  Not surprising this is doing so well

Godaddy Names With One or NO Bids  Don’t know what W will stand for but you can decide after you pay your $12 Sounds like a brand from 2007  The trucking or shipping can often be the hardest part of getting product in.  No bids at $12 Sounds like a video game loot exchange  Its a science word but I like it as a brand. No bids at $12  Seen much worse travel names sold for much more money.  No bids
