I’ve been a little hard on Sedo the last few years and I’m going to continue the trend today. It really is tough love. They are (or maybe were) one of the premier domain auction houses in the world. But every month that goes by they are losing market share. And their recent numeric auction is a perfect example. They gathered a decent portfolio of domain names but nobody had the confidence in Sedo to set lower reserves. Compare the results of Sedo’s domain auction Here to the results of 4.cns recent numeric auction. One brings crickets and the other brings in $500K plus. Sedo had zero chance of selling any of the NNN.coms with the reserves that were set. A few of the NNNN.coms got some good prices and the rest were names that could be found on Godaddy or Namejet on a daily basis. If they wanted to have some sales they should have loaded it with NNNN.com and NNN and NNNN.nets. I know easier said than done but a simple email to everyone that has a numeric listed on their platform and a few thousand dollars in advertising on Domaining.com and they could have pulled it off. But they have lost the confidence to invest in themselves and sellers have lost the confidence to sell names at their auctions. It’s going to take time to build it back but it can be done. And I will be rooting for them. They are what got many of us into domaining and gave us an opportunity to make money parking, selling, and buying names. Here are today’s names.
ProfessionalDrinkers.com 17 years old. Pretty fun name for $12. No bidders
CanShop.com Didn’t mean much until Cannabis Shop became big business. Some bidders see the value
CanPipes.com Same thing here. Only a few bidders at press time. 13 years old
LasVegasFilms.com No bidders. There have and will continue to be a giant film business in Vegas
Hurka.com No bidders. I liked it as a 5L.com but is also a sausage and a last name according to Google.
OLMB.com I think everyone was sleeping this week. Not many bidders on this one either
The100.com I like it because its very memorable. I thought I could have it for $12. A few bidders have ended that dream
TheSip.com Nice name for any restaurant or coffee shop
Toomby.com No bidders. Buy and put on Brand Bucket
DPMH.com Top LLLL.com at Godaddy today IMO
NB88.com You can put any two letters and end it with 88 and it will have value. Already close to $50. Will probably go for over $100
Dubai.info Already over $6K. I heard Dubai has a lot of money.
NetPets.org I don’t see why this is almost $8000
2798.net Sold NNNN.net. Over under at $270
FrostNixon.com Movie came out 6 years ago. One of the most historic interviews in American history
Purrz.com No bidders on this cat name. Or at least that is what I would use it for. Or a cool purse
ClickThis.com You know it’s a good name because its owned by Eric Borgos.
Yabai.com Cool in Japanese. May hit $10K
SiteKing.com Hate the description, like the domain
Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day. $10 off PURCHASES OF $50 OR MORE ACOSKS65
QOF.com An LLL.com. That’s good enough
DWNE.com 16 years old
7L.net Fantastic dot net. Numerics and shorts have been the few class of dot nets that have increased in value
CounterAttack.com I think video games when I see this but it doesn’t come up in Google on the first page. More soccer and drugs
FVZ.com Z is the best letter in Russian. I made that up but it sounded pretty good. I know nothing about the Russian language and figured most readers didn’t either
Profited.com A lot of people have profited by flipping these past tense verbs
Weak.net My name and somebody is going to get it for thousands less than I paid. Reserve is $500
Succeed.org A fantastic dot org. Motivational names fit perfectly with dot org
33900.com Deserves more than 22 bidders IMO but better for the buyers
