DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Sunday 8/17

Aug 17 2014


As I sit here going through the list I’m coming home from the airport.  I have a driver that usually gets me from my trips or runs errands for me.  It’s a luxury but it’s something I’m so thankful for. Even better is I get to sleep with the driver.  Because she’s also my wife.  We have an agreement and that’s I drive when it’s hard or new driving, and she drives when it’s familiar.  Coming home from the airport fits the familiar section so I can do work using a piggyback off my phone.  On my trip, I didn’t have phone service and limited Internet over the past 10 days so for all of you that I didn’t get back to you, I will over the next few days.  Anyone that sent an email that needed a longer response I didn’t make the time to answer but I will.  Some of you may remember that during the last domain conference I kept betting the Astros figuring they had to lose sometime (they were the worst team in baseball at the time) yet they seemed to win every game which cost me thousands.  Well I got it back on this trip on Tampa Bay and Seattle.   I found a sportsbook on vacation that took baseball bets and killed it going 7-1.  By the end the guy working the sportsbook joked that he was happy to see me leave.  I would go in every day on the way home from the beach and place my bet.  I bet once a day ,each day and collected on the first six days straight.  There were a few casinos on the island but they were a little small for me and I’m not a huge table games guy.  I do it more for fun than profit.  My wife is the opposite of a gambler.  Her only gambling is trying to not put money in the parking meter and running inside real quickly without getting a ticket.  So she didn’t really like me betting baseball.  That was until I won a few thousand and then sold two names which paid for the entire trip.  We even upgraded to the nice pay beach chairs and rented kayaks to paddle the islands because of my winnings.  It’s the first time ever I’ve come home with more money than I left with that wasn’t Vegas.  But I’m back (or almost back) ,back to reality and working my ass off again.      Here are today’s names  19 years ago when this was first registered it was a big name. Now it’s fallen to under $500  Back again.  Doing very well this time.  I predict a sale  Defines what the site is going to be about.  Could break it down within the site like Date Ugly People, Date Farm People etc.  Over under of $370 IMO.  Already fairly close so I could be wrong on this one  For $12 I think there are much worse things you could spend your money on.  No bidders at press time   Only one bidder at $12. Seems like a good flip at Flippa if it stays cheap  11 years old. No bidders.  Decent tech name for the price  I thought I was going to get this for $12 but one other person beat me to it  I think this would go for $6K or more on Flippa. Just my opinion of course  I may be a bit biased because of the agricultural thing.  I know a few companies that would benefit from an upgrade here   Also biased on this one.  But this one is cheap also.  Or was when I wrote this


NEW Saturday!!!! Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day. 25% off new items added to cart. Great for new gTLDs bb2017a  19 years old. Short and memorable  17 years old.   Would make a great brand.  I know it’s spelled different but I like many other people had a little crush on Winnie from the Wonder Years. Of course back then it was a little creepy.  25 years later it’s a perfect difference in age    Sorry for my language but it is a pretty awesome name  Since I’ve already cussed I might as well keep going.  Because not everyone is in to hotties.  I like the name a lot . Only 5 bidders but it’s really the reserve you’ll be bidding against  Still see it all the time  I feel like every town has a soccer world   Unfortunately it’s what my daughter want to go to in college.   Evidently more exciting than growing plants.  I’m surprised it not getting many bidders
