Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday October 13th, 2019

The great part of writing every single day is I pretty much document my entire domain journey right here. It’s a diary that I can go back and read and either laugh or shake my head. I decided to see some of my “what I bought this year” posts and see what I did with the domains. I’ve sold a lot more names that I remembered. I can see why my portfolio has gotten pretty good after 12 years of buying and selling. Here is a look back on a few of the posts

From 4/19/2013

YUSU (sold)

BOWO (sold)

VUGU (sold)

DOWO (sold)

FOKO (sold)



Hatsy (sold)

Doodled (sold)

BetterParking (sold)

Puddl  (to go with my (sold)

Had a pretty good sell through on this list. Of course they would all be worth a lot more now

From 10/20/2012

LandscapeDesigner. com (still own)

Cupcakes. info (dropped)

Galavant. com   (sold)

Successor. com (sold)

HDDVDBurners. com  (dropped)

Algaecides. com  (dropped)

TreeSpader. com   (dropped)

ShitIFound.  com   (dropped)

Weety.  com   (sold)

This list was a dud bought I made a great profit with the names I did end up selling. And LandscapeDesigner is definitely more valuable than what I paid for it back in 2010

From 1/11/2011 I left my original commentary since it’s pretty funny to look back at. Overpaid here but I really like the number.  The last purchase of my $10,000 into NNNN experiment (I do actually have $800 left so I may buy one more)

1248 Loved the way the numbers double.  China loves domains that end in 8 but don’t like the 4.  At the price I paid I could double my money tomorrow

3065 Didn’t have a 4 and that’s all I looked for when adding to my portfolio

3289 Is it crazy to pick a domain based on how it types out on a numeric keypad?  That’s why I bought this one

aPillow For under a hundred dollars I thought it was a steal.  AND…I love pillows

Koppo 5 Letter that is a nice tight type on the keyboard.  Go ahead, type it out…Nice huh?

Wirby Stole this one.  A nice 5 letter domain.  I’ll do well with this one

Akly I bought it for a few hundred dollars for two reasons.  One, it is a pronounceable 4 letter dot com. Two it was getting 7,000 uniques a month. Turned out to be adult traffic that I don’t usually mess with but I’m pretty sure I can get my money back just from monetizing the traffic.

GirlsFighting (this is a dot net) I was a sucker for the searches 112,000.  I figured I could flip this one.   Anyone want to buy it for $300?

BlueTomatoes I just liked the name.   As a plant grower it fits my niche.  As a brand building guy I don’t think there’s an easier logo in the world to make.  1996 registration was an added bonus.  I thought it was a great buy

I still own blue tomatoes but unfortunately I sold every other name on this list. I may have dropped GirlsFighting. That one I don’t remember. But I do remember 7881 because I left six figures on the board.

I say that I’ve become a better buyer as I learn domain investing but the more I look at it, the more I realize I am becoming a better salesman. I am more patient and can afford to wait for a bigger price. I’ve made some bad decisions (the .ws thing) but over all is wasn’t too bad considering I was relatively new to domain investing. And I didn’t have a ton of money to play with. I had just a few thousand dollars. Sold them to start the $10,000 purchases of of which the sales gave me the bankroll to be where I am today with zero outside dollar investment. Every domain you see me talk about today is a result of the flips you see in this post and many more not listed. And to think it only took 10 years of working at it a few hours a day. An overnight success

Domain of the Day: This just showed up in the auctions. I can only imagine how high this one is going to go

Namejet, Sedo, Snap, and other Names Up for Auction Looks like this one is actually going to hit reserve A Hispanic last name and “Doler” means “to hurt” in Spanish For all you fintech people. Yes all 3 of you 17 years old. Age doesn’t make it better but it doesn’t hurt it either. No bids Food or date. No bidders A last name and that’s good enough to be a brand down the road. And 6 letters so short There are a lot of Ewings in the world but most men think of Patrick I think this one is worth the high reserve. The singular is a good brand R for Realty. The rest are great letters It’s not as easy as riding a bike 1996 birthday. A little bit of turbo and a little bit of turban

  1. Shane- you did pretty well over the years- fun to look back!

    Don’t forget about Ewing Oil and JR Ewing- he would have wanted that name back in the day! But Patrick was a great Knick!

    Also- I think there are least 5 of us in the fintech game!
