Domain Spotlight: Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Tuesday, Feb 23rd

People are always talking about the “old school” domainers having it easy but the truth is there are a bunch of newer domain investors doing very well.  Some did it on their own, others got involved because of a friend or a family member.  One family member who is killing it right now is James “Manly” Booth of  Younger brother of Andy Booth.  He just secured the brokerage rights to and  Two of the best domains in the in Chinese domain world. Not bad for a newbie.  You’re going to need some millions to get them but if you do buy them, let them know you bought it because of me because I think James has a pretty strong affiliate program. Here are today’s names. Click to see current prices.  Good way to start off the day.  Pretty special name here. Don’t see names this high on Godaddy very often.  Six figure name IMO so it has room to run   No bidders at $100.  Certainly worth more than that  All comes down to the reserve.  Hell of a name   A lot shorter, and actually more rare, than a   And the price reflects it  Most color + animal dot coms are worth $12.  No bidders I don’t even know if these are a thing but it sure sounds like a thing, , ,,, ,   Here’s your daily collection of the lower boats.  We’re all hoping the float with the rising Chinese tide  Usually the LLL.nets are over at Namejet.  This one must have lost her way Not sure if they use this term any more.   Saying this was the same as tapping out.  I know, sounds like I’m 80 years old, ,,, an are now officially money. $300 plus money have been money for a while  Such great letters yet so little uses of it as an acronym.  CHIP  Somebody is going to be able to buy some pretty solid patterns today   And yet another one.  Lesser quality but still a nice pattern,    Not a pattern but no zeros or fours so you got that goin’ for ya,,,  Sounds like a big business.  Billions of app downloads  I guarantee the word cuz has zero value here.  All because of LLL    According to Josh’s Chart, this has an average price of $108  I think I sold a little too early based on this price  This ugly name is worth $2K.  Don’t hate, appreciate  Double 5. Worth owning IMO  I love the description.  A little off in the price though

Special Domain Shane ONLY Coupon…….. CODE IS DDCDS2015 Good 30% off Discount Domain Club to get the lowest renewal prices Godaddy offers (DDC)  A CHiP at only $400 but probably because seller isn’t updating his bids

Portfolio of 50 LLL.coms.   Don’t get to buy 50 at a time very often   I will say that Domain Holdings doesn’t have very high reservers on their numerics  Not a bad name.  Selling it as a website and the website is just awful.  But it makes $5 a month Love the name.  Sellers account name is not good for getting a good price Stands for “I hate everything” to the millennials. Worth too much to be used in that direction Has soared past reserve. It was the most obvious gap fill in domains. LLL.nets had to move up with LLL.coms and yet very few people took advantage of it Had a much higher reserve and yet still met it quickly Very nice ending in 8. Met reserve already


FOR OTHER GREAT NAMES FOR SALE MAKE SURE TO VISIT CAX.COM   Nice triple repeater closing today  Just to see what the going rate of a 4 and a zero    Still think .XYZ is junk?    Oh yeah, this is fake money buying this,,, and   Some nice 6N.coms ending today   Gotta have a three letter dot net in order to have a list lately

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 . (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.

  1. I wouldn’t classify Andy Booth as a newbie. The access and connections his brother grants him is something a true newbie would need years and multiple trips to conferences to build. A bit unfair to compare the achievements of Joe newbie domainer to someone like Andy.

    1. Koosah,

      I think you mean James. And most of the new, successful, domain investors are people that have found people to answer questions and guide them along.

  2. I saw James Booth, back out of a chip deal at namepros when they fell, he got negative feedback on it, not a classy move once you agree to a deal.

    1. Hi Rich, Yes this did happen and I had no issue with the feedback received. I didn’t back out because of the market. I just couldn’t arrange the funds in time that the seller wanted.

  3. If I had two $5 million mansions to sell, I wouldn’t leave it up to a rookie agent to sell them. This is either blatant foolishness on the part of the owner(s) or some kind of nepotism/connection in the works beneath the surface. Also, brokering domains doesn’t make one a domain investor; maybe a domainer with huge connections but investor, no.

    1. Tony,

      You ever seen Selling NY or Selling LA? They are some of the biggest real estate guys in the biz now and most are VERY young. Just because you are new to domains doesn’t mean you are new to the world. Domains are no different than any other product. And if I am giving my $5 million dollar mansions to someone to sell. I am giving them to the person with the most connections, I don’t don’t care how long they’ve been in the business. The world is run on nepotism and connections. There is no such thing as “I did it on my own”. For every person that think he/she did it by themselves is a group of people behind him that isn’t getting any credit.

      1. Thanks, Shane, for making mine and Koosah’s point. This “newbie” is doing very well because of connections and nepotism. How many newbies are in the same boat? 0.0001%?

        I feel bad for the true newbies. There is a lot of unmerited and misdirected hype in domaining. Toby Clements and Adam Dicker got a lot of it in the past and they turned out to be two of the biggest douchebags. On the other hand, there are some megadomain investors you will never hear about because they make so much money they don’t need the attention or aggravation. Guys on the level of Rick Schwartz and Mike Berkens. I’ll give a shoutout to them. One owns Another owns

      2. Tony,
        There is always somebody bigger, better, faster and stronger than you are. Doesn’t make anyone less of a person. Just because Adam Dicker is a con artist doesn’t make everyone else a con artist. You have a fantastic domain (and probably portfolio) and so do the guys you mentioned. You can tell you hit a nerve with me because I am the 5th generation owner of my family nursery. Everyone says I am successful because my name and my family gave me my position and money. I was given opportunity. And I ran with that opportunity. I am offended every time someone says I didn’t earn what I have.
        As for newbies. We are all newbies at some point in this business. But that didn’t make me naive. I didn’t know a soul when I cam here. I went to a conference solo and not invited to a single dinner or after party. But I met a few people who introduced me to a few people and by the end of the event I had made some great connections. So I don’t feel sorry for newbies. I don’t chastise those that have “ins” . Every step along the way requires due dillegence. All of life does. I celebrate hard work, I congratulate people such as yourself who have built a great portfolio, and most of all, I am learning to not be spiteful of those that have things I want or wish I had. That’s been harder for me. To learn that knocking people down doesn’t bring me up.

    2. Hi Tony, I appreciate the comment. The reason these 2 sellers gave me the names to sell was due to the fact I closed $3m in sales in my first 5 months brokering. They believe that I can get the results and I will do everything in my power to do so. I haven’t been handed any connections as my buyers are all based in Asia which is where I live so I go out and find them. Cheers, James

  4. Shane, thanks for the congrats but I want to say I didn’t write anything to draw attention to myself. It just sounds like more hype when domain veterans sometimes make it seem like it is easy to break into domaining. It is not. Not saying you did that. Just wanted to make a point and from your previous reply, I see you get it also you made it for me.

  5. Hi Shane ,
    It is funny how .XYZ sales are considered by many to be fake sales.
    I don’t recall any other new extension sales being viewed with such skepticism.
    BTW , what is your opinion of keyword .XYZ ?

    1. Glenn,

      I think is great if you are going to build it out. tough to sell in the resale market for a while. Unless its a very strong brand or keyword.

      1. Thanks for your reply.
        Though I do own several keyword .XYZs , I totally agree with you that they are great for a build out , but will probably take a while to catch on in the resale market.
        Thanks !
