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

Dec 12 2018

Escrow.com

The big talk yesterday was the sale of Plants.com 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: RealPain.com     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

MeetingSoftware.com   15 year old domain.  With the popularity of Zoom.us the industry can see there is a good business model for a pay for use meeting app.  $41,000 Estibot

GGN.com  I think this will end up being the star of the Sedo GD auction.  Travis picked it out immediately.

OVU.com  I think this may end up being a great deal.  The V is ok for me because you can pronounce the name.

Yachts.com  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

Biello.com Fairly popular last name so its going to be a brand eventually

DomainWorth.com  Not sure we have any new domain valuators but if we did

GameNotes.com    Not a bad sports site name. Or video games as well

BeefMart.com  The exact opposite of vegan.  All meat, all the time

BluePit.com    Endusers will be something but it won’t be pitbulls.  Met reserve under $150

Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids

HolidayZone.com   Closes today.  But the domain this year.  Build it and kill it next Christmas

AdMasters.com   Aged marketing name

SnowConditions.com   22 years old.  A new snow based weather app in the making

CrustaStun.com  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.

NVIN.com  22 year old LLLL.com  Under $250 at press time

DiscExchange.com  You don’t see them much anymore but back in the day used CDs and DVD stores were common.

GrooveCity.com    Been used for many different things in the past.  Beer, clubs, songs.  But only one can own the domain

Sqeezey.com  Fun name.  I think game app or children’s brand right off the top

NuHerb.com   Canna name all the way.  We have a couple dispensaries with Nu in the name

Greepit.com  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

Aisheng.com  A technology company in Europe but also a first name

MadTiger.com  Short and memorable .  Easy logo

G7.cc  Price is crazy to me and I like .cc

BrandTag.com   Another marketing name.  I put it up here because marketing is the backbone of the Internet

CallForJustice.org  Dot org goes perfectly with this name.  Pretty relevant with the recent cop problems

PowerWriting.com   “Get it right when you write”  free slogan

PotExperts.com   Pot and Weed names are a little down but maybe that’s an opportunity because marijuana certainly isn’t down

VapeWeed.com   Vaping certainly isn’t down.  At all time highs

EatBetterFood.com   Great marketing name for a higher quality restaurant or store

GYAC.com   I like LLLL.com with good letters that end in a C

Vilao.com  Under $40 at press time

DispensaryDelivery.com   I’m sure this will be a thing eventually

 

Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids

 

Bearmark.com Upgrade name for hundreds of companies. Easy logo, just throw a bear in it.  No bids

GroovyCoin.com  There’s a coin for everything.  Why not a cool coin

EscortAgency.net You can get this for less than a half hour with an escort.  Based on 3rd party info not experience

PrimeCourse.com  Online education

NoYouDidnt.com  Could have some fun with the buildout of this one

BunnyRose.com “Now on the stage………………..Bunny Rose”

MonkeyBeans.com  One bid.  Fun name to build out.  Just not sure what they purpose of the domain quite yet

SpookyShop.com  Halloween costumes comes right to mind.  I imagine that’s what was on the site before it wasn’t renewed

Kiisu.com  I just think it looks nice.   Only one bidder agrees

IHopeYou.com………………..?  You hope I what?

Ultrun.com  Really good ultra runner name.  I’ll take if nobody else does

XStripper.com  Did you used to make money moves?  Then you should buy this

TheBrandExperts.com Love this one.  Long but works for me.  BrandExperts.com is being used for marketing only and not a business name

RedCamp.com  7 letter brand

DIYCourse.com  Good online education name.  Although people are starting to figure out that the bests learning still happens in an interactive classroom

Kanka.com  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?

    Thanks

      1. Dave

        Shane thanks very much. I’ve sent a donation to the email provided. Please let us know how the trip goes.

    Shane,

    I won the RealPain.com auction on [email protected] 06/25/2018 for $80 USD but the seller refused to award the domain name since the auction did not go well

    Auctions Pending Payment – amount includes bid and registration/renewal fee:
    ==================================================================
    Domain Auction Close Payment Due Amount
    ==================================================================
    realpain.com 06/25/2018 1:15PM 07/02/2018 1:17PM $80.00
    =============
    Total Auctions Pending Payment $80.00

    Be careful!

    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
