Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday March 31st, 2019


Brandbucket shared some recent data about their sales in February that I thought was interesting.  Here what they shared

Average sale price if you exclude sales over $10k is $2521

50 sellers sold names.  Of the 50, 36 had one sale in the month, 14 had 2 or more

Of the Keyword names that sold (60% of sales were Keyword)

66% Two Word

20% Suffix + Prefix

8% Misspellings

4% Single Word

2% Portmanteau (have no idea what this means without looking it up)

I think this tells more about the platform than anything.  Two word dot coms are more likely to be in the price range they are looking for

Invented Names (40% of names were Invented) 

66% 8 Letter

20% 7 Letter

8% 6 Letter

4% 5 Letter

2% 4 Letter

I think this is very informative.  My 5 letter names aren’t as desired as the longer names.  4 letters are generally accepted by Brandbucket unless they are pronounceable  so I knew that would be skewed down.  In short, I was surprised how few names sold.  I never really looked into the data at BB because I have no domains there.  I sent a group but their selection was so random that I decided to go a different route.   Josh has had some good success at BB and was one of the people that sold multiple names so it can be a good supplement to what you are already doing.  The question is the high commission worth the extra eyeballs that you receive.  What do all of you think?  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.


PS:  My friend Michael Cyger is doing a marathon today.  Make sure to follow his or my twitter to follow along.

Domain of the Day:  Love these types of brands.  You know the item but its going to sell everything but

Namejet, Sedo, and other Names Up for Auction   Another double vowel although I think its the same one I mentioned the other day   Just a cool crypto way of spelling Miner  Everyone wants their piece of the pie   No bidders on this 5L.  Losing radio people to Felk    Surname and probably a first name.  No bids   Upgrade name for a few companies.    Sounds like an audio type name  I would never be in this book.  No bids  Not sure it has value but still giggle over the eagle uncle sam that attacked Trump and the gifs it produced    Go to any craft or garden show and you’ll see several booths selling handmade soap.   Reserve met  I think it would make a good name for a crypto casino   Something we all have lots of  A printing company should use this as a marketing name to promote the sale of exactly this  No bidders.  Canna name? Of course if I can’t think of anything that’s my default   Sounds kind of romantic.  I would name my wine this   I can see the product already.  Just a stick you put in the ground and it bluetooths it into your phone inside

Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids  Easily the best name on the board today.  Almost all the For Sale By Owner names gone.  Some would say ByOwner is not as good but when people talk about a house they usually say the owners because a family lives there   Charms as in trinkets or charm as in cute and lovely  Nice to see a bitcoin name in four figures again   CBD is where you want to put all your money right now *  It’s where I like to buy my CBD oil A name and a CVCV   These types are way down in price at auction.  Consonant and good Western letters  Not sure if you call them tutors but people will understand these are music lessons  Bowling.   I like to stay in mine  They don’t stay in their lanes  A little creepy but OK  Yeah yeah.  Everyone wants to feel empowered  Solid 365 days a year


A few LLLL.coms Up for Auction

Godaddy Domains With One Or No Bids   Would make a great logo and definitely memorable   Sounds like a wholesome food that is going to cost more but will have all kinds of buzzwords on the label    Help you find the best rate    Dot cc is not a very good investment except good single words.  This one is probably worth the $12 gamble.  But don’t buy it on my recommendation    The cool way to describe a Food Truck    A brand that could be built around a positive thought   Venture capital name.  Although it sounds like fun grow  I find that the F sound is usually not misinterpreted    Sound Japanese   I’m going to Lendja some money    I don’t love it but the bio endings seem to get bid one regularly.  No data, just making up what I think I know   We’ll put our hives into your fields for better yields     Pigs don’t all look alike    Sounds like a kids toy  2007 called.  They want their brand back   Gamble on baseball  You can’t smile fast enough

  1. I think domainers are going to move away from BB over time to newer marketplaces. There are alternatives out there such as Brandpa, Namerific, and a few other newer ones I’ve seen pop up lately.

    One of my friends who is also a designer just created his own brandable platform where users can sell their names and it’s nicer looking than BrandBuckets and much more domainer friendly. You can white label your site and not have the middle man 25-30% fees.

    1. Tim, I agree. I don’t think things are very good at BrandBucket at the moment and won’t get any better. 2019 has been extremely quiet so far, submission reviews take ages, staff are leaving, and the information level is unsatisfactory.

      Do you mind sharing who your designer friend is?
