It felt like my birthday today going through the NameJet list. The normal 9-10K worth of .com’s was down to around 6K, and it appears that there were no BuyDomains names with the crazy retail reserves. This made it so much easier to search through the list. I even back-ordered 10 names last night because I didn’t have chest pain from the $1K+ reserve every time I clicked on a name. Hopefully it stays this way or they drop their reserves to reasonable prices.
Next up on the list of things to change is the Godaddy auction process, I talked about this before. I talked to Joe Styler at NamesCon over lunch and pitched my idea for investors to be able to reap the benefits of the Godaddy expired auction process. I’m wasn’t talking about profit sharing but rather an opt in for investors to let their names go all the way through the auction process with Godaddy only taking the standard 20%. He said they had experimented with profit sharing in the past, I think the rate he quoted was around 50%. Joe said that nothing really benefited the company, like increased registrations or less transfer of names to other registrars.
I suggested that this is comparing apples to oranges. If I was able to opt in and agree that I wouldn’t renew the name or transfer it out after the auction, while knowing that I’d get the standard return after the sale, I wouldn’t ever move my names to any other registrar. My names would be on equal footing with the rest of the Godaddy expired inventory. There wouldn’t be a different starting price, or “traffic” numbers to compete with. I would purposely let names expire just so they would go through the auction. The amount of good Godaddy expired inventory would rise. For any name that I own that lives at Godaddy I wouldn’t even consider any of the other auction platforms, because I wouldn’t need to.
One other take away from our conversation was how the auction system deals with names that it considers “adult”. They don’t show up in the regular feed. I tried auctioning a few numerics that contained 69 in them. They only got 1 bid and weren’t searchable through the standard API feed because they had been flagged as adult. So be careful what you list at auction that falls intentionally or unintentionally into the adult category. You may not get as many eyes on it as your would like.
