DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Thursday 8/21

Aug 21 2014

gftpwANWhile Aaron and I have no illusion that we are one of the top domain blogs we feel we have finally secured our ranking as best 3rd tier domain blog.  And while Aaron and I could certainly could force the trained dolphins that we usually use to write the site (so we can get in our 20 miles running a day) to feed the ballot box with votes, it would be easier and nice to have a few of you vote for us.  I’d have to check with Cyger to see what the going rate for purchased votes is this year, but we certainly offer rewards for votes.  Among the gifts in exchange for nominations include, one free domain lease negotiation from Mark at,  A “Reintry Back Into the Domain Boardroom” card from Donna Mahoney, One free dot us of his choice from Konstantinos, 50 free auction listings at Bido,  and finally a framed, autographed mugshot from Domainclature.  It doesn’t get better than that, so make sure to put in your nominations HERE (the link to the email is actually at the bottom) . Here are today’s names.  19 years old. Opening bid is $500 and I think the value is more than this.  May pull the trigger  This opening bid was $10K and someone DID pull the trigger  15 years old.  Bad Credit has such a HUGE CPC that all bad credit domains do well. This one is no exception, getting some love  A steal is not always a bad thing.  Could be a bargain. And this is one at the current price but most likely won’t stay below $500  I don’t think I’ve ever seen an auction on GD with 140 bids.  Are they bidding $1 higher each time?  Not getting as many bid but a better name and the price reflects it  I think that the CVCV that start with X are usually undervalued.  Most people know that X at the beginning is pronounced “Z” so a name like this one is very pronounceable and brandable.  Another fine name.  Has gotten above $2500 as well  The 88 makes it a buy  Under $150 is a great buy here  This one is under $25 at press time  Great name for dot me.  Nobody agrees though as it’s under $30 Going to find out if have any value .  I actually have no idea  What the cool kids are saying instead of the insanely long WTF….and I just made that up, I don’t know anyone cool

NEW Thursday!!!! Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day. 25% off new items added to cart. Great for new gTLDs bb2017a I feel like I should buy this as I used to trade this option constantly before it got bought out. CEGE was its trading symbol.  20 years old  19 years old.  V is good at the beginning  I don’t know what clag is or means but it’s getting lots of bids and I’m a crowd follower  Up for public auction. As I mentioned before, there seems to one in every town  Just buy it. Look at all the bids  Our family has one.  These birds live for f’n ever.  90 years

Have a name at auction and need more exposure? Send me an email. We may be able to help. If you have an auction you want to promote, email us for details. *All names chosen by me, Shane, and the goal of this list is to have all links be paid through commission . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct.
