Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday October 4th, 2018

There is one common trait among all successful people in domain investing.  They are hard workers.  There are no second generation domainers yet.  Nobody’s Dad handed them domains. Everything that people own or sold at this point was accumulated by themselves.  And to be successful long term it takes more than money and luck.  That doesn’t meant that after some success that vacations aren’t taken or time has been taken off, but in the beginning there was always effort.

There are a million ways to skin the domain cat and the only person that suffers from you not doing well is you and your family.  For someone to say you are stupid because you aren’t successful is ridiculous. Why anyone cares if another person makes or loses money is beyond me.  Your bank account gives you all the feedback you need.  You don’t need some person who did well mocking you because you aren’t.  What most people are lacking is experience and product knowledge.  Where does that come from?  Time and comps.  People make fun of our simple lists and results.  I think the opposite.  I think one of the more important pieces to the domain success puzzle is knowing what names are up for sale,  and what they sold for.  It gives domain investors a sense of what they can get for a domain.  Pricing is not an exact science but every piece of information you can swallow about domain value should be taken in. Domain investing success is knowing your product, understanding negotiation,  keeping up a way for buyers to contact you, time, and luck.  Simple but not simple.  95% of the time the domain investors flaw is in the first two and the successful are experts in them.

That’s the only advice I will give you this week.  Know your product, become a skilled negotiator, manage your cash, and put in the time.  The rest of the domain talk is entertainment and no more.  Although the world always needs more entertainment.

And now the important stuff.  As good of a day at Godaddy’s auctions as there has been in the last 12 months.  A lot of strong names today.   There could be 15 names that hit four figures today.  Here are today’s names. Click through to see the current price


Quote of the Day:  “Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” –Calvin Coolidge

Domain of the Day:       Would make a good name for a video game videos


 Namejet and Sedo Names and Others    This one is doing better than most because its a pattern people like VCVC.  Met reserve    Uniregistry is all over this one.  Same pattern as above   Great letters.  L for league.   At $25K   Great letters and met reserve

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids    talked about this one yesterday. Perfect name for our industry  No longer a future tech.  Its a now tech and the huge bids say someone agrees with me  1995 birthday.  At $1500 but Godaddy thinks its a 5 figure name  If someone saw this they would think its already  been a trading site for decades  Great letters.  Under $400 would be a good buy IMO based on past sales   Not a dot net fan but this has lots of age and is very short  I don’t think you can use this as a brand without owning as well   I actually know two people with this name.  And that’s why its getting so many bids  All the money is in pain and love    You do, you really do   Two strong words.   The kind of two word domain people are looking for  Probably going to be a phone case or similar   Crossed $6K yesterday.  Ironically the price of a luxury box for a football game   Alpha makes for a good two word domain.  40 bids  Amazing how many four figure names are up for auction today   Not sure why this one is 4 figures but it is and so its here   Everything is smart right now.  Why not diapers?  “We’ll do anything”    I’m thinking fashion design over graphic design


Godaddy Domains With No Bids  If you sell them this isn’t too bad of a name for $17  Excellent marketing name for the tens of thousands of charter companies that offer this No bids.   App or online tool all the way  a definitely maybe worth looking at   Man is .ws worthless.  What was I thinking  this definitely would have sold 2 years ago.  Not now.  Just using it as an example of how value changes at the bottom  There is one company that would really would benefit from owning this name.  No bids    Pretty name with no bids  So many people wish they could get instant insurance

  1. I liked the names, I liked the quote, and I liked your intro. Well done, Sir!

    Have read a couple of books on negotiation, but it would be interesting to get your take on it.

    1. Thanks Tomas. Sounds like today is going to be a good day. 🙂 As for negotiation book I really like Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss

  2. I worked with a Greg Smith in the City. He’d pitch people whilst walking around holding a cricket bat. He would constantly moan about and have arguments with one of the few women on the floor. He detested her. About 15 years later I found out they married.

  3. “Know your product, become a skilled negotiator, manage your cash, and put in the time.” This is sound advice. The rest of it is drama!

    Never split the difference is a great book.

  4. Shane, 168 is the second most powerful number in China after 888. It means, I will make a fortune from business or something like that. When I went to China a couple years ago, I saw 168 all over the place. That explains,
    I own and hoping to sell that some day as well.
