Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday January 23rd, 2019


The replenishment of assets.  This is a cost of doing business that all businesses take into account.  When it comes to pricing I feel like domain investors pull numbers out of their ass.  There really isn’t any rationale to what price they come up with other than “as much as I can get”.   Cost can be a component but you can often buy a name for $500 and sell it for $12,000 so returns look crazy good.  But what does come into play is what it would cost to buy another similar name to make sure my portfolio stays at the same level.  Imagine a store where as people buy products you don’t restock.  It become hard to keep the revenue coming in. The same goes for domain investing.  The cost to replenish has skyrocketed over the last few years which has caused me to increase the prices and expectations of most of my names.  In short, they are more valuable because similar names at wholesale are more expensive.   I never look at my return based on cost because many of the names I purchased many years ago at cheap prices. If I had a third party business person look at the name they would be ecstatic to sell it for 20% of what I am looking for based on cost to sale price.  I look at the return based on what it would sell for at wholesale value today.  I won’t lie, there are days where I think it would be easier to just sell through my portfolio and invest in other things like real estate and other markets but I have a passion for names and I truly enjoy the domain market. I don’t get anywhere near the same enjoyment out of the other markets and my returns are as good or better than anything else I could invest in.

On a person note I’m really having a great time in Kenya.  I’ve written many times about my passion for running and standing side by side the best runners in the world with some being the best runners in history.  The local town has had a giant epidemic of hepatitis this week so although we are seeing injured runner with no insurance many of us had move over help with the hepatitis patients because the hospital was inundated with patients. Fortunately we all have had our series of shots but they have run out at the hospital.  It just puts life in perspective when you work in the hospital of a third world country.  What do I do as a nurseryman?  Not nearly as much as the doctors and nurses.  My wife and I are the only non doctors or medical students in the group. So we do administration.  Walk the patients from one part of the hospital to the other.  Take their information. Go into the town and the local tracks and talk to people and let them know that we are at the hospital and providing free care.  I’m not a shy person so they take advantage of my big mouth.  But again, the doctors are the real heroes.  I am grateful they let me tag along and hold their cape. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD continue writing each day.

Domain of the Day:     Easy to say and spell and already the name of several entities

Namejet, Sedo, and other Names Up for Auction  Nice financial name with a few bidders.  e still exudes online IMO   Not very often you get a up for auction.  Need to be a millionaire to play though  Another that will take a nice bank account to acquire   If the reserve is closer to the left side it could be a good deal   Met reserve so its going to a new home  Right up my alley. This will definitely sell to an enduser down the road.  Now we just have to figure out how much to pay and what the enduser price will be.  Plenty of pretenders in the world to give this one some value   Wenr wenr chicken denr  Not going to sell it for a lot but some coffee grower may use it for an email or something. No bids


Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids  Highest value by Godaddy on the board.  Bidders don’t quite agree but still doing well  Exudes positivity in my mind.  18 year old name   You knew I was going to like it    Getting quite a few bids.  I like typos but I think this is more confusing than cool    People generally don’t like high rates but it is easy to spell and remember   Great letters and the NW is good for Northwest  It has a hyphen but still a great marketing domain for a company that offers that service.  You would remember it on the side of a truck.  And its a HUGE business.  My friend owns a storm damage, flood clean up business and kills it   My kind of name.  A nice little 5L.  A name I could have gotten for next to nothing 8 years ago and now it will probably go for over $500.  I could build a portfolio of 100 of these for $5K back when I started. Now its going to take $40K plus   Another nice 5L   Sounds like and 80s rock band.  Memorable brand IMO  Upgrade name for several entities.  Won’t misspell this one. Good radio test   Another nice

Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids  Sounds like an AI company. No bids at $12 This actually has a bidder.  I would only use it as a joke site  Not sure when it ends but memorable and brandable  Exudes security and an easy logo  Going to be a marketing name.  To small to build around but more and more people are offering wellness checks   As good of a name as lifelock  Reputation repair still a thing? No bid
