Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday February 6th, 2019

If you put up your portfolio at auction right now at Namejet how much would it fetch?  Better yet, lets pretend YOU are the NamesCon auction.  The entire room is going to bid on your top 100 names.  How do you do?  I don’t think the results definitely determine your skill as a domain investor but 99% of the time its a pretty good determinate.  Josh’s portfolio of tens of thousands of domains probably wouldn’t fetch much on an individual basis.  But if he listed out his numbers.  Sell through rate, annual revenue, annual costs, then he may get quite an offer.   But this is a rare bird.  Most people can easily determine the value of their domain if they were to auction off their names.  Good names want to be owned by other domain investors.  Just like good property.  People want to own things they can sell.  If nobody wants to own it but you then you are 1.  a genius and ahead of your time or 2. a person that made bad buying choices.   I’ve found that most people think they are geniuses.

On a side note, I received a scary note from a fellow domain investor who has become a friend of mine over the years.  Except it wasn’t from him.  It was from his wife letting me that he had had a heart attack.  But survived.  And she knew that we had talked quite a bit and wanted me to know.  First I said a prayer for his family and daughter and then I thanked his wife for letting me know.  Would your family know what to do with your domains if you died?  Do they know your passwords and who to contact if something happened to you.  My wife knows to talk to Travis, Josh, Michael Cyger, and Drew.  I’ve put all the passwords of the accounts on physical paper in the safe.  The rest she can figure out just by having my computer.  But I got to thinking. Would my daughter know?  It’s a talk I’ll have with her and probably my brother just in case he has to step in.  I have no plans on going anywhere but not sure any of us ever do.

Finally, can anyone explain why there are always names that drop that end in AT?  Its been like that for a decade.  Why did people register all these names and nouns with AT at the end.  Nobody has ever explained it to me.  Anyone know?  Here are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD continue writing each day.


Quote of the Day:  He’s turned his life around. He used to be depressed and miserable. Now he’s miserable and depressed.” – Harry Kalas

Domain of the Day:  Has over 10,000 backlinks from being the name of a startup that got acquired.  Seller let me know it comes with matching twitter handle

Namejet, Sedo, and other Names Up for Auction  Big enough city that I think it makes reserve   One of the better dot me that has been up for sale in a while IMO  and   Somebody put the pair up for sale with a low reserve.  Cashing out   I see my neighbor “FBI Survelliance Van” on my Wifi so maybe he could use the name  Another one with a reserve under $500   Has a good chance to sell.  Not sure I’ve seen many go to end user but the aftermarket is hopping  Its a past tense which generally I don’t like but good food or pet food name IMO  No reserve.  Kinda pronounceable.  So kinda good name   Great marketing name/ call to action name for an orchard   Bill payment platform comes to mind first

Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids    CBD and cannabis couldn’t have timed it better.  Opioids are not working and the world is searching for a new pain relief  By far the top price on the Godaddy board today  Sounds like a WeWork, office sharing name  “but it has a 4”  patterns….patterns   How big?    Geo could be geography or geometry  Everyone loves Top Ten lists  and 10-15 years ago the first one was a mid five figure name.  We’ll soon find out current value   Can never go wrong with Double Ds.    Unless your running   Latin for “the”   Media name from 1998   Sports cards always come to mind first for me when I see cards in a domain  Upgrade name for a few companies   Sex or escape.  Both could be fun


Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids  An app named this.  Online Mama  Anime line art and a few companies with the name Anime line.   I’m always amazed how popular anime is in Japan and Korea.  It’s everywhere  Easy logo, no bidders  The Mountain is a pretty good defense   Fashion brand is first thought.   No bids  The backup is selling it to a Tulane fan  Tough bro Capital names haven’t been moving quite as well lately I’ve noticed  Fun to say.  Worth $10 just for that reason  The University for Sidehustle 5L with no bids  Good marketing name for a product that prevents blisters  Cool Sounding tech name  Wacky name with no bidders  5L with no bids

  1. Shane, what I don’t understand is why no registrar offers a protection service in case the worst does happen. Basically insure your domains are safe and transferred to the appropriate party.

  2. Shane, it’s ironic that you mention that you mention that story. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that a Canadian cryptocurrency exchange, QuadrigaCX, says about $140 million worth of customers’ holdings are stuck in an electronic vault because the company’s founder, and sole employee, died without sharing the password.

    I have already trained my 17-year-old son, and he has taken over my domain business to pay his way through college. My family would have been in real trouble with the names if something happened to me a few years ago.

  3. Epik offers protection in a forever domain for $399

    Domaining is a dangerous profession, not enough movement
