Domain Spotlight: Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday, March 13th

There is one thing that I’ve learned after the last year or so at auctions.  If First or Two Two want a name.  I WILL NOT be able to beat them at an auction.  And it doesn’t matter how ridiculously high a price gets.  They will keep going.  Ken O’Brien can vouch for me because the same thing happened to him.  The Chinese absolutely love balance in their names.  And they have take an liking to LLNN NNLL.coms  that have repeaters on each side.  Yesterday I really liked  But so did the First and Two.  They were bidding it up between each other and then I decided to jump in. A At $400 I jumped in and it was obvious that no matter what I bid they were going to come right back and they did.  I remember talking to Ken about a very similar name and he went all the way up to 4K and they kept going.  It too would have stopped at $500 without him joining in.  I’m not going to lie, its intimidating.  People who are talking about a crash obviously aren’t getting beat up like I am in the auctions.  Proving my point that its a change in flow of money, not the amount. Here are today’s names. Click to see current prices.   Alternate spelling of Audrey.  17 years old  You’ve heard me say it a few times.  Media names always seem to sell for a good price.  This one is no different.  A few products already have this name so sell it to them or defend it from them  Don’t see very many NNN.nets anymore  Be careful! You don’t want to get hit in the face by these.  No bidders  I probably do.  I bet a few other people do too  Really good DUI name.  “The FYI for DYI”   Decent pattern  No doubt 6N have fallen out of the conversation.  More lack of volume than falling prices.  We’ll have to watch and see on this one.  I am fully vested as are many people. And that may be the problem. Need more interest  The above will do better because of the patterns.  Even little patterns increase the price,,  You’ll hear me say on Monday’s Domain Sherpa that I bought a bunch of LLLL.coms that ended in XC because I was trying to add some cross country names.  XC is short for Cross Country.  Little did I know that would be a perfect Chinese  These have held their value during all the “collapse” talk.  Most have been going in the $300 plus range.  This one without a V will probably go for $350 ish   This one has the V but the rest of the letters are solid  Speaking of perfect Chinese name.  I think are fantastic investments for the long term  Even those with vowels   Another CHiP.  I don’t like J and L together because how many Justice League names can you sell?,,,   and  Your daily 4L.nets.   These have settled into the $200 range as of late   The stepchild of numerics in the major tlds   Only two letters will get this up to $70ish   dot biz is holding serve.   Hasn’t flown up in price but holding very steady  I think this could sell on a brand site.  Good buy under $50  Looks and sounds technical and commercial   Means “be careful” in Spanish.  dot co used to be Spanish  I have been buying  You have to remember you add $25 for renewal on these.  But I have been getting them for $20 so I’m good at that price.   Thousands go to Mexico for cheaper healthcare.  And the donkey shows   How they say Iron Hawk in Boston.  Joke value only

Special Domain Shane ONLY Coupon…….. CODE IS DDCDS2015 Good 30% off Discount Domain Club to get the lowest renewal prices Godaddy offers (DDC)  Under $200 when many of the have been selling for over $400 .  Met reserve  Met reserve.  Under $1000  Getting Zero love.  Flippa has had some real deals on Chinese names the last month or so  I’m not sure the dot org is best for this but the keyword is fantastic.  Low price is because of the dot org  I like it for our industry.  But price is already better than I thought it would be and it still hasn’t met reserve  Nice WHiP. Stuttering Outside Linebacker

TA.GS One of the best GS names you can buy.  Better than the old lady boob site SA.GS

FOR OTHER GREAT NAMES FOR SALE MAKE SURE TO VISIT CAX.COM   The perfect Western acronym. This has had great value for 20 years  I think you will have been glad you bought at but I’m only putting this up to say “I told you so” or to let you say that to me  Same here  Will sell as its met reserve.  There are quite a few super premium on today’s Namejet list but I’m only going to put the names that I think have a chance to make reserve to save everyone time No bidders and 20 years old.  Not a bad buy for $69 I think this makes a great brand.  Perfect memorable tech name because of the port thing  The best kind of you can buy. One that ends in C .  20 years old No reserve.  I only know it because of Tom Clancy   Another good brand.  News site is probably the play here   No bidders.  Great buy IMO at $69.  Could be anything.  Doesn’t have to be a drawing site  No bids.  Harley Davidson motorcycles are called hogs.  HD people LOVE their bikes  Another nice   Will be interesting to see where they end up.  They’ve been hitting $2K plus lately which doesn’t quite seem like a crash,,    A few nice CHiP LLL.nets  They have taken over the malls. Looks it up.  Its what they call those little shopping villages that are popping up all over the place  When somebody new is looking to start a blog this is one of the first thing they look for.  Great CPC as well  Perfect name for a billboard or marketing campaign of somebody that buys jewelry   Do comedians have a union?   An interesting name.  If I were building a brand I honestly would rather have this than some none memorable   I think the Chinese market will like it as well because of the balance   All you have to do is look around you and know that dieting should be part of everyone’s life  Good acronym letters but less results on Google than I expected  Not as good for the West but this is going to China anyway  One more going to China   The double M is the draw.   The Chinese are buying this type right now.  As I mentioned above, if they want one you will not outbid them

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.

  1. So if you have a name at auction going on at namejet and you see both first and two two fighting over. $ signs are in!

  2. Hi Shane,

    First and twotwo are a sellers dream I guess but as a buyer on the other hand …
    I have been outbid by those two more times than I care to remember.

    I have found first to be even more determined than twotwo for certain types of names (only a very small difference between them) in that he will literally keep bidding to any price, you may as well give up in advance and use your energy for other things.

    One example of many, I was bidding on at dropcatch some months ago which I really wanted to buy. It went over $500 bidding back and forth. With around 30 seconds or less to go he outbid me yet again with another high proxy and I gave up knowing it was going to be futile to keep trying.

    It can get very very frustrating bidding against those two bidders.
    You’re not the only one getting “beat up at auctions” lol.

    1. Now that everyone knows about first and twotwo outbidding everyone, I hope it doesn’t cause any shill bidding.

      1. Jon,

        No. Newbies just found out about first and twotwo. Anyone who has been bidding on these names the last few years knows this all too well. Nobody is forcing anyone to buy these names. If a shill bidder causes someone to pay more than you want to then they aren’t doing it right. You should figure out what you’re willing to pay and stick to it. Shill bidding preys on the undisciplined

  3. “it was obvious that no matter what I bid they were going to come right back and they did.”

    Many don’t remember but Frank use to do that on Namewinner (major auction site between 2001?-2004?). Everyone (everyday) said that he was overpaying. I wonder if he ever made it in the business? Frank, I tip my hat to you.

    1. Now that everyone knows about first and twotwo outbidding everyone, I hope it doesn’t cause any shill bidding.

  4. Shane, is the name you are referring to. I can recall this name without any effort and it has nothing to do with being the under bidder. Like you have mentioned many times you have to pay up to get good names. When dealing with First and twotwo I look at it as I have a lot of possible buyers for the name I’m pursuing. You will notice that your inbox gets a lot of inquiries when ever you win an auction they were involved in.
    Have a nice Sunday everyone 🙂

  5. My xyz don’t look so crazy anymore
    Or these clubs
