DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Thursday 10/2

I was asked what I thought about the values of LLLL.coms and how they’ve moved over the last year or so.  In my opinion, compared to numerics and other short domains, they have not joined in.  But the “better letter” LLLL.coms have increased 20% (very rough guess) in the last 18 months.  To me they will always be some of the most liquid and solid investment in domain investing. You not only have the chance to have that end user want the name as an acronym but you always have the ability to sell it at auction and get much of your money back. And that’s more true right now than ever.  Here are today’s names.  These domains are making somewhat of a comeback.  18 years old.  Got a bid at $5K  18 year old  Getting a little action  Surprised this has gotten so high.  People really don’t care about trademarks I guess.  Just traffic  12 years old. No bidders.  Two common words for $12 is a risk I feel comfortable taking.    Good Facebook and Twitter background design name.  A few bidders agree   11 years old.   I’m not sure if it’s a boob fetish but I’ve always liked a capital B.  And here I get two   C for corporation  Good looking domain.  If you buy domain for their looks  A little 2007 sounding of a brand for me.  But it still works    Sounds like they could hold off a Russian hacker for a few weeks   Under $200 at press time  Tough name to be positive about.  BUT..the reality is people are actively looking for brain tumor information    Water is the most precious thing on earth.  Behind Lebron James that is  Great name for the price here.  Sounds like a real site already.  comes with all the other tldss.

Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day. $10 off PURCHASES OF $50 OR MORE ACOSKS65  This is going to do very well.  I predict FIRST buys it  I actually like this one more – 12 years old, no bidders. Maybe you can sell it to Mike Berkens to pair with his, or Frank Schilling to pair with his $2,300 Estibot.   The sign of a good business, investment, or job.  If it can make it unscathed through a recession it’s good  I just sold on Namejet for $3K so this one has to have SOME value  Las Vegas something  Second most bids on the board today  My favorite name on today’s list

CAX DOMAIN OF THE DAY:  Wonder why Dolly Parton hasn’t purchased this yet.  Cheap for her

That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct

  1. I pushed “” to auction with a $5k bid. I appreciate the mention, by the way. Taking fees and exchange rates into account, I would have barely broken even… so would have been a prime candidate for the “Flops” list, but I would have been OK with that. 🙂

    Sadly, upon completion of the auction, I received one of those “Regrettably, we must inform you… We have taken appropriate action against the buyer.” emails that has become a common theme in my inbox these days.

    On the plus side, I also received a “Transaction cancelled by Sedo” email regarding a $10k name I was buying, so technically, I made $5k yesterday. That’s how it works, right? 🙂

    Seriously though, fake buyers, fake owners, and scammers in general, have been plaguing me a lot more this year than in previous years. I’d like these parasites to be punished more severely, but deep down, I know that it’s never going to happen… unless they could invent a pill to stop a dumbass, crack-smoking scammer from being a dumbass, crack-smoking scammer.

  2. That would be quite the pill, Shane. 🙂

    I’m holding a spot for you on the “Flips” list in the future now that didn’t go through for you.
