Domain Spotlight: Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday, March 9th

I work with people privately on how to get the most out of their auctions.  It is a known fact that people bid more often which leads to more bids and often higher prices.  But it is understandable that people don’t want to give away their money if an auction goes poorly.  So they put the starting bid at their reserve price so they don’t have a reserve.  That usually kills an auction.  People sort by bids and often judge the value of the name by how many “other” people like the name.  Put that starting price high and you don’t get all those bids.  Some people do it to save the cost of a reserve.  Yes they ruin their whole auction to save $5 at Godaddy.  In short, do a no reserve if you trust the marketplace. If you need a reserve put one on and start the bidding $10 and let it build.    Here are today’s names. Click to see current prices.   South China University of Technology.  A small school of 88,000  After seeing these two expire on the same day I think they were registered because they are types of boats.  Luckily those boats are also 4L.coms   Its a good name but it’s way above where I thought it would end up.  Always learning   20 years old.  Getting more bids that I expected.   Does have a PR4    Haven’t really been any comps in 2016 for a 5N starting with 44.  This one will set it   If you like 8s and 7s it doesn’t get much better than this.  I’ve always been ALLP never SOMED   It may be at the $299 listing price  And a big space it is. Or at least it seems like it.  Although it used to just be called a new business   A pretty special dot net.  The prices shows you that others agree if you don’t think so   Great acronym letters for the West. To me that’s the most important market.  Only because its the only market I fully comprehend.  The Chinese market is all gravy.  Turkey gravy.  The best kind  I was going to say it isn’t as good of letters but I’m scared of the KGB so I won’t say anything   Some great dot nets getting sold here today.  This the best yet.  WW, world wide.  Put any other consonant besides this one at the front and we’d be crossing $5K.  Still doing well   Fantastic name that is under $25 at press time  Media names always seem to go for more than I think.  Although this is a nice sounding name   Not sure it has more value because it has the word EYE in it. So far it doesn’t   I know one V is bad but is two Vs good because because it looks like a W 🙂  Not a bad brand for $10.  No bidders  I think this crosses $1K  This one will be trailing just a little behind  According to some of the people in the Namepros thread this should end at -$400  No reserve.  And only at $120 at press time.  Maybe I’m just seeing triple and there is only one 8  Used to sell for a lot more.  I think it will again but don’t buy on my thoughts.  Because you will lose all your money if you do.  And then you’ll have to take a job rubbing beard oil in Ali’s beard and  The least amount of LLLL.nets I’ve had on the list in a few weeks. Does that mean nobody wants them or that now everyone renews them. Is this good or bad?  I’m so confused   I do eat them a lot so I feel I am qualified to say this is a good name   $60 name  $200 name  Not sure what this is valued out right now.  We’re about to find out.  But owning these has been a good buy as of late  I bought a bunch of these for $15 (Plus $25 renewal fee) but this one is already at $25  I made the mistake of paying $250 for 4 or 5 of these patterns. Now $70 to $150.  I’ll just keep them and wait and mine are a little better letters   One bid but its a good one and   Only two low boats today

Special Domain Shane ONLY Coupon…….. CODE IS DDCDS2015 Good 30% off Discount Domain Club to get the lowest renewal prices Godaddy offers (DDC)  Looks like the seller is going to be rich

CO.SKI   One of the few dot ski that I really like.  Not that expensive all things considered The current price is way below other prices lately   Parking isn’t cheap in any big city but NY parking spots cost more than my home  Do follow the numbers to the $400 mark?   A lot more combos.  That’s why this is at $15 and no reserve

FOR OTHER GREAT NAMES FOR SALE MAKE SURE TO VISIT CAX.COM  Wait!!!  I thought these were at $1800 now. This one is at $220o already.  I guess I don’t know what crash means.  Perfect Western Letters  No bidders. I’d take this for $69.  I like anything sweet.  Almost anything  Good name for a classified paper or a site of some kinds.  6 bidders  The one positive about this Chinese market coming back to earth is that you may be able to get some of these super premiums a little cheaper  This would be $4K a month ago.  I think it gets there today   Looks like the price for 7Ns that start in 888 is over $300 now  More great letters.   These are the kinds of names I recommend to clients and by clients I mean a few of my friends   No bidders.  Many people think this is how great things are achieved.  Most football players

  1. Shane,

    You are quite smug when it comes to your commentary and responses to anyone who challenges your Chinese view. I also think you are also starting to back peddle and flip flop on your views.

    You are quick to shoot other people down on the forums and blogs, so you should have no trouble answering a few simple questions as you have have strong views, knowledge and opinions on the Chinese market.

    So can you please answer for me and your readers some yes or no questions. Just Yes and No. Easy.

    Is the average price of CHIPS dropping?
    Has the average CHIP prices dropped since December?
    Is the average price of non CHIP dropping?
    Has the average price of non CHIP dropped since December?
    Do you think the average price of 4L Chip & Non Chip will rise in March and April from where it is today?
    Do you think the average Price of all will be higher in 6 months from where it is today?


    1. Eric,

      Here are the answers to your questions
      I am a domain investor. I move to different categories all the time. And you are asking all the wrong questions. The answers to these are obvious.

      And the smugness is a reaction to the emotion of people such as yourself when it comes to the drop. For some reason you are enjoying it. You can’t even make any money on the downside. There is no reason to EVER root for a down market in domain investing. You should always root for upside. If you could make money on the downside I would have a completely different opinion. You simply would be taking the other side of the economic model. But there is no other side. So you are just being a “told you so” contrarian. Joe Peterson and Theo were on the “these are coming down” side the whole time. Until it gets to under $1000, people such as myself are still profitable in the market because we have been in since June and people like myself since 2009.

      Is the average price of CHIPS dropping? Yes and its going to get worse
      Has the average CHIP prices dropped since December? Yes and its going to get worse
      Is the average price of non CHIP dropping? No, going up
      Has the average price of non CHIP dropped since December? No
      Do you think the average price of 4L Chip & Non Chip will rise in March and April from where it is today? Yes, for some types of names
      Do you think the average Price of all will be higher in 6 months from where it is today? No

      I’m not sure what you are trying to prove

  2. Eric, every market has its ups and downs, the Chinese demand is still developing in my opinion. I have tons of Numerics and my email inbox is full everyday including today! I’m grabbing more names, when it dips! I love it -Mike Maillet
