Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday November 8th, 2018

I woke up yesterday morning to one of my favorite emails.  A congratulations email from Afternic.  The first thing I look at was the name.   Hmmmm.  I have no idea what I priced it at.  Maybe I priced it at $6800.  But its not a great name.  I think I hand regged it.  Not even sure why I kept renewing it.  But I did and it sold.  Its like a scratch off game where you scratch off and match the numbers but now its time to scratch off and see what you won.  So I log in to Afternic and check

$888.   The lowest I price any of my names.  I should be excited but $500 or so after commission just doesn’t move the needle.  Don’t get me wrong, if I lost $500 my needle would be moving like crazy but hoping it would have been more.  Then again, if it was more it probably wouldn’t have sold.  But I did what I always do and used the money to buy another name.  I bought Peepa dot com.   It’s not a game changing name either but I think its better than Lball.  Portfolio looks better with the switch.

That’s how you shave years off building your portfolio.  You keep your real job and put all money minus taxes back into domains.  The portfolio builds twice as fast as someone who has to pay their mortgage, cars, and all bills from their domain sales.  All without having to add any money back in.  A little time and $12 names become $50,000 names with flips and upgrades.   Unfortunately not a lot of upgrades on today’s list.  Just not much out there to choose from.  Hoping you find that diamond in my rough list . Here are today’s names.  Click through to see the current price

 Domain of the Day:            A hot industry on a hot tld.  A perfect match.  One bidder at $20


 Namejet and Sedo Names and Others   Love the name but the reserve is tough    There’s a whole group of phone photographers.  Of course it’s not as challenging with camera phones being so good now     Sounds a lot more official than DuoLingo   Good name for someone in our industry. No bids  Daycare or tutoring.  Only $30 an hour  If you go to Hawaii this is the prized wood of the area.  No bids   Italian for The Netherlands.   Also a decent looking brand

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   1996 Birthday.   A community of working Moms.  Or could be   At first site it seems to have an S thrown in but then I think about it and capital for Ventures actually works.  So the name has my approval.  Not that it matters at all    Good looking    I think it hits $300  “When you want to get higher, quicker”   The 999 made this the top price on the GD board   This one is right behind.   I’ll leave these to the specialist   Github type name IMO    If Dick Towel can bring in six figures in sales then Magic Towel should do fine   These are the types of name I buy a lot and sell a little


Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids  Gets a little traffic.  Pretty easy content.  One picture per month  Upgrade name for a few entities  Sounds like an IPA so it would make a good brand  Another one here.  Logos are so easy on these  A last name which means eventually it will be a brand  Good marketing name for a Christmas shop   Canada has added a new type of grower this year. And they have cash  This is going to do well now that I’ve unearthed the seeds

  1. That’s a very nice upgrade from LBall to Peepa in my opinion. I had been following that name all week, but only bid early on.

  2. I forgot to keep bidding on peepa. I was watching a game, and simply forgot to keep track of the name. Congrats

  3. I immediately thought of it as an abbreviation for “low ball” as in offering a low price. I like your strategy of using profits from a sale toward goal of always making the portfolio stronger. Thanks for your daily reflections here, Shane.

  4. I thought it was left ball so since you didn’t have rball might as well sell. Good move
