In the show we learn that only Canadian sherpa’s know anything about numeric prefixes :). So if Deci is a 10th Deca is….? Yep 10, so a decameter is 10 meters.
I have an idea to make NameJet auctions better for both the buyer and the seller. There are all kinds of different domain auction models out there. It seems like each one is different, has it’s own unique characteristics and little nuances that you need to know to make your bidding more successful. In almost every domain auction process the names with the bids get more traction because even one bid adds a metric that distinguishes them from the thousands of other names.
With NameJet auctions the pre-order window ends at 23:00 eastern time, so if you find a name that you like your best bet is waiting till 22:59 to place the order. Many people do this, I have added orders at 22:59 as the first bidder and still had 6 or 7 other people order the same domain within that minute.
As a buyer it’s a way to “snipe” good names without drawing attention to them, but only if I have nothing else going on at that time. I’d love to be able to order names every night, but it doesn’t always happen. Sometimes I get busy, fall asleep or just lose track of time. For a seller this process is less than ideal, as good names that aren’t marketed somewhere can slip through with only one bid or $69.
So how do you get people to bid before the last minute of the pre-order? You need to incentivise early bidding somehow. So here’s my draft idea or a solution. The first bidder would get a $20 credit on the name if they win the name regardless of what the final price is. The second bidder would get a $10 credit towards the name. The first bid credit would be valid for bids placed no later than 24 hours before the end of the pre-order, the second bid credit valid for bids placed no later than 12 hours before the end of the pre-order. The price would remain at $69 to avoid any confusion. Here’s an example of how it would work.
Bidder A finds a good name without any bids that ends in 2 days. Bidder A makes the first bid.
Bidder B Makes the second bid a day later. Bidder A is technically winning because he placed the first bid just like it is now. Bidder C and D also place backorders for the name. The name goes to the 3 day auction and ends at $300. If bidder A wins the auction he only pays $280, if it’s bidder B he pays $290, and Bidder’s C and D would pay the full amount if they win.
This would incentivise early backorders, which would ultimately lead to higher and more sales. It would also move more names, the ones that you debate ordering because you’re not sure if they’re worth $69 wholesale, but might be worth $49.
And finally in the spirit of Christmas I wanted to offer an opportunity to help a local family that lost all of their things in a house fire. It’s actually the house that I posted a picture of in my last list, it turns out that they’re good friends of one of the guys that I work with and I even know some of their extended family. They basically lost all of their things in the fire and were renters that didn’t have renters insurance. People have been dropping clothing and other household things off at the station and a Go Fund Me account has been set up. Should they have had renters insurance? Sure, but since Christmas is a holiday that’s really about the gift of Grace and undeserved gifts, it would be nice if we could help them out a little. So if you want, donate a few bucks, it doesn’t have to be a lot, but it would be a nice gesture from the DSAD crowd. House Fire Go Fund Me Click Here
