Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday December 12th, 2018

Dec 12 2018

The big talk yesterday was the sale of by Dave Evanson of Sedo.  It’s a name that’s come up for me several times.  Being in the industry a few people came to me when it came up for sale.  The first was Andrew Rosener when he was talking to the owner about brokering it.  He chose not to because the owner was pretty aggressive.  The owner had a big price on the name because he owned it in the 1999/2000 era when people would trade stock or pay a few million for a name because the mention that you bought the name and were going to do online commerce would pop your stock 50 million in one day.  So he still had a little residual of those prices in his head.  The second person was Adam Strong who loves his one word dot coms and he’s been to the nursery and knows that’s my wheelhouse. I told him it was just too generic and the list of companies that would pay a lot was limited.  Well Dave found one of those companies and everyone seems happy.  Congrats to Dave and Sedo and congrats to a fellow nursery owner that also sees the value of domains. I hope I can replicate his success with Botany.

We also recorded a new Sherpa with Tess, Andrew, Hobi Michalec, and myself.  I think its the best show of the year.  We get a little off topic but its the most entertaining of the year in my opinion.  Hobi is great on the air and has sold enough big domains over the past few years that he is more than qualified to be on the panel.  I’m never quite sure what we talked about on air or off air so I won’t talk about anything until it airs so I can see what I’m supposed to keep quiet.   All I can say is the domains and the prices that they are bought and sold for is amazing. It shows that most of the sales are never reported or talked about.  I could sit all day and listen to everyone talk about what they passed on, how negotiations went, and prices.  I can tell you one name I asked Drew sell for me and he says he doesn’t like it then 3 months later he says he had someone call him and asked if he knew the owner of the name because they liked it.  I told him he doesn’t know shit about domains.  Here are today’s names.  Click through to see the current price and to fund this daily list


Quote of the Day:  Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” -Marcus Aurelius

 Domain of the Day:     I’m long pain.  People will pay anything to get rid of pain. And they’ll search all day on the net looking for relief as well.


Namejet and Sedo Names and Others   15 year old domain.  With the popularity of the industry can see there is a good business model for a pay for use meeting app.  $41,000 Estibot  I think this will end up being the star of the Sedo GD auction.  Travis picked it out immediately.  I think this may end up being a great deal.  The V is ok for me because you can pronounce the name.  I’m afraid the reserve is scaring everyone away. This is going to be a post auction behind the scenes sale.  The auction just lets everyone know its for sale Fairly popular last name so its going to be a brand eventually  Not sure we have any new domain valuators but if we did    Not a bad sports site name. Or video games as well  The exact opposite of vegan.  All meat, all the time    Endusers will be something but it won’t be pitbulls.  Met reserve under $150

Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids   Closes today.  But the domain this year.  Build it and kill it next Christmas   Aged marketing name   22 years old.  A new snow based weather app in the making  Yep. The top number of bids on the GD board today is the name of a machine that shocks lobsters to death so they are dead when you boil them.  22 year old  Under $250 at press time  You don’t see them much anymore but back in the day used CDs and DVD stores were common.    Been used for many different things in the past.  Beer, clubs, songs.  But only one can own the domain  Fun name.  I think game app or children’s brand right off the top   Canna name all the way.  We have a couple dispensaries with Nu in the name  Greepit WAS  “a go-to place of designers, developers, small businesses and entrepreneurs for the best open source resources, best practices, and daily tips and tools”.  Now its yours  A technology company in Europe but also a first name  Short and memorable .  Easy logo  Price is crazy to me and I like .cc   Another marketing name.  I put it up here because marketing is the backbone of the Internet  Dot org goes perfectly with this name.  Pretty relevant with the recent cop problems   “Get it right when you write”  free slogan   Pot and Weed names are a little down but maybe that’s an opportunity because marijuana certainly isn’t down   Vaping certainly isn’t down.  At all time highs   Great marketing name for a higher quality restaurant or store   I like with good letters that end in a C  Under $40 at press time   I’m sure this will be a thing eventually


Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids Upgrade name for hundreds of companies. Easy logo, just throw a bear in it.  No bids  There’s a coin for everything.  Why not a cool coin You can get this for less than a half hour with an escort.  Based on 3rd party info not experience  Online education  Could have some fun with the buildout of this one “Now on the stage………………..Bunny Rose”  One bid.  Fun name to build out.  Just not sure what they purpose of the domain quite yet  Halloween costumes comes right to mind.  I imagine that’s what was on the site before it wasn’t renewed  I just think it looks nice.   Only one bidder agrees………………..?  You hope I what?  Really good ultra runner name.  I’ll take if nobody else does  Did you used to make money moves?  Then you should buy this Love this one.  Long but works for me. is being used for marketing only and not a business name  7 letter brand  Good online education name.  Although people are starting to figure out that the bests learning still happens in an interactive classroom  5L with one bid at $12

    Shane, thank you very much for your daily lists. I’ve bought several names I found via your lists this year.

    I was meaning to get around to contributing to your Iten trip. Is it still possible to send you some money via Paypal?

    I think one has to look at how ecommerce has evolved since 1999-2000 to better understand why certain domains have lost value, and others have gained value.

    I’m sure there are some expensive plants, but in general, they don’t cost more than $25 and are perishable. Margins cannot be that great. How long would it take to pay this domain off via profits generated? For 1-800 flowers probably less than others because of their huge email list, as plants are complimentary products to flowers.

    Seems like a FMV sale
