Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday May 30th , 2018

The talk is all GDRP but in the background are the fantastic sales at the top.  Top end domains are killing it.  Even at the auctions top names are getting five figures.  The question is this. Do you take the money or do things continue to go higher form here?  Being honest its hard not to take a little money off the table.  The problem would be finding similar names to reinvest in.  For those wanting to put money into something else its an easy decision.  Its always why I think you are seeing some great names come out of the woodwork.  Its a fantastic time to move a high quality name.

Media Options is killing it because this is their wheelhouse.  I haven’t been told any “secrets” but I know enough to know that many of the one word brands are going to crypto. And they don’t have crypto in the names.  They just want good names.  But they aren’t the only ones buying these names.  They are just adding fuel to the fire.   It’s a great time to be in domain investing if you held on to your names.   A tough time if all you have is bottom tier.

And for the record the .app hype is no different than any other past hype.  Ironically one of the hottest non coms is the tld that got no hype.  Dot io.  Dot app has a role but its limiting to an app.  I don’t like limits.  I’m sure some will do well but this isn’t beachfront.  It’s not even lake front.   Its a nice new condo in a suburb.   I would stick to dot com.  There is still plenty of sand left at that beach.    Here are today’s domains.  Click to see the latest price

Domain of the Day:       If you like .co then you have to like a domain like this.  GD thinks its worth $19K

 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction Met reserve at $90.  Great name for cyber security or online protection   Has hit reserve and will sell.  VOIP is the future of all business phones.  84 bidders    Sounds like a challenge almost as much as it does a brand.  Very close to reserve. I think it sells.  And most of the world is just hit $14K plus so this will probably meet reserve    You know what they sell


Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  Upgrade name for a few companies.  Good name for a teaching site   Pretty popular band.  And the most important part of the saying Roger Wilco   Second times a charge   Getting some good bids.  An important part of every day   Not sure what it will be for but it will be visual   Don’t know what L is but this is your hub.  And its a   The patten of that I really like  People think of Billy Idol when they hear this but it more known in the US as yell the Rebels made in the Civil War   One of the better to come up for auction lately  Worth a lot more than the $35 bid at press time IMO   The name describes the service so it works for me        Because As Seen on TV is probably trademarked this probably is workable     The women of crypto sounds like a 90s calendar.  This sounds more professional

Godaddy Names With One or NO Bids  Leafly type site in the waiting.   Except here you can order   save big money on hot fashion brands.  NO bids  Sounds like a boarding school or a basketball prep school  Another site like WebHerb.  Could be just paraphernalia to start  Who says porn can’t be elegant.   Oh….everyone.  No bids Upgrade name for a few companies  win a car at auction?  We’ll deliver it  Also known as Ring Girls No bids.  Houses and so much more  Sounds like an app

  1. Shane, how about premium crypto domains, for example cryptobank. Don’t you think that these will continue to hold value? Or is it your opinion that the ‘crypto’ keyword will be pushed out in favour of non-limiting brandables and so the price of quality ‘crypto’ domains will fall?

    1. Dave,
      Cryptobank is a great name that will continue to rise in value. But I do think brands that don’t limit what they are going to be are where many brands are headed. A generic name allows a pivot and/or an expansion.

  2. A large reason why crypto companies are switching to more generic and fintech sounding names that don’t have ‘bitcoin’ or ‘crypto’ in them is due to banking restrictions. A lot of NA/EU banks are refusing to open or subsequently closing accounts of businesses that are obviously crypto primary by name. This discrimination may expand to ‘chain/block/coin/token/bit’ names but for now it doesn’t appear to in most cases, and by the time it does crypto will likely be a little more regulated and thus less of a red flag to banks. Feel free to use that argument if you’re trying to convince someone of the value of them buying your generic name for their crypto company.
