Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday July 5th , 2018

 Yesterday I tested out my training with the annual 4th of July 5K here in town.  I have run it everywhere from 18:04 to 20 minutes.  I knew yesterday was going to be brutal because the temp at race time was 85 degrees (30 degrees celsius) and a heat index of 95.   I usually run my 5K in the summer at 6 min to 6:15 pace for a 5K (3:44 to 3:52 per km) but I knew I was going to have to tone it down.  I also know that mile two is a slight climb so I save a little for it.  I haven’t beat my daughter in a while as she normally breaks 18 minutes but she hasn’t started training yet and the heat gets to her.   At mile one I felt very good.  I hit it at 6:15 and as I crossed my daughter came up on me and said “You went out to fast”  I felt great so I knew she was talking about herself so responded “you’ll be fine, just hitch a ride”  A term we use when we’re out of gas but you find a team mate and just grind and follow their shoes.  It usually can get you to a pace that you would normally fall of without someone to follow.    Mile two was some work

Unfortunately my daughter dropped off and normally I would be passing dozens of people on mile two but it was too hot and there really wasn’t anyone between the young studs and me and the decent age groupers.  So I looked for my training partner who was trying to break 6 min pace and just tried to keep the gap the same.   I ran 6:25 mile two , 6:20 mile three and ended up with a 6:20 pace for 19:49.   Not a great time but a great time for the heat and despite not starting my marathon training yet.  I actually felt pretty good and went out and ran the course again for a cool down.  The police guy working actually asked “Damn man, how many times you going to run this course?”  Because we had run it once to warm up and once to cool down.   The 5K also marks the start of marathon training.  A time when the healthy eating starts and the miles build.  Its tough but exhilarating.   Really looking forward to a good season.  Hope to sell a few more domains to buy some more Vaporfly 4% 🙂

And now for my bidding and buying from two days ago.  (I didn’t see a lot I liked the other day).   I bid on the following names.,, Krekk,,, and OversizeHauling.  All dot coms

CardVault was obviously the best name on the list.  I liked NeverAge as a anti aging product.  Oversize Hauling I liked because this is a real business and a perfect name to describe what they do on a billboard or on the side of their truck.  Krekk and Bozog I liked because I have had great luck with 5Ls in the $1500 to $3000 range so if I can get one for under $150 that is pronounceable I buy it.  Every time I sell one I usually try and buy more to replace it.  But I have been able to get 3 to 10 for the same amount of money depending on quality of name.   I don’t mind talking about the names I won here even though they aren’t in my account.  If someone wants to contact the seller and try and buy them that’s fine. They aren’t that great of a name that its worth the effort.  The bigger names I won’t be able to talk about until they are actually in my account because of the reason above.

The results of the bidding.

CardVault.  Bid up to $1205 and wasn’t even close.  Went for $3683.  Much higher than I thought it would

NeverAge   Bid up to $75.  I could see early that I wasn’t willing to pay enough.  Final price was $308

Krekk    Won it at $134.    Under my $150 mark

Bozog   I lost track of this one because I got busy at work.  My bid was $65, thought I won and someone sniped it at $70

OversizeHauling   Won this one at $160.  Going to put it at BIN on Afternic and a lander at Efty when it goes through

GiantMoney   I liked this as a financial name and because it was easy to say and spell.  I bid $135.   It went for $160

Is this interesting at all?  I’ll keep it up if more than 3 people care.  If you like the names below, click through to see the current price

Domain of the Day:        Under $100 at press time but bet it ends up at $500 plus

 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction  3D will get much more popular when the new Avatar comes out.  Always does  Adult or mud party.  Either was sounds fun.  1999 birthday  Great name for a shoe company.  They know what they are getting.  Holiday means vacation in Europe and Ireland is a beautiful holiday.  No bidders  Only a few bidders.  Something we all need to get.  Great marketing name   Conceal and Carry Permit requests are at all time high.  Give them more info here. Only 5 bidders    Upgrade name for a few things.  One being a computer benchmark site that judges a computer’s speed   Love this one.  Great site and email name   Wonder how someone is going to possibly use this in a non horrific way  Absolutely the worst reserve in the history of domain investing.  You look and see if you agree


Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   1992 domain for all you old domain collectors.  Upgrade for several companies   Sounds a lot more colorful than Salt Life.  And less sand in my shoes and  Two names getting higher bids because of age and backlinks    Solar names move and look how many times Max is spelled with two Xs  I think you’ll do well with a portfolio of Animal+Capital or Financial   Upgrade name as well for all the various companies that share the name.  21,000 backlinks and $5300 GD value   Total Quality is a naming convention that is used quite a bit. Still going to China though   Still like this one better for the price   Upgrade name.  Could have picked up in 2014 and now might hit four figures   There still are millions that do around the world.  Could be hash as in canna or hash as in tech  Means Trama in Slovenian but listed here because it has the most bids on the GD board today  The goal of many is to get on it   You are going to get SO high here  Over 100,000 backlinks on this one   I call it rain but somebody is going to sell you something they say is better

Godaddy Names With One or NO Bids  Has a trademark but don’t have to use it for what they’re using it for. No bids  There are plenty of people that want to comment.  Could be a news site  There are so many companies called this that I think you can get $500 for the dot net  No bidders . A and a name Get past the NDA part and you could have a good site  Not much value but would make a good brand  80s sounding name.  Probably why there are no bidders and no bids on these two   Clean up your files  What I call some of these people that drive up prices in the auctions  Sounds like a pill they are going to sell online and you are going to become awesome  Catch some cash  Smooth ……with a bite

  1. Shane… “Is this interesting at all?” ….It sure is! Thanks for sharing. I must be getting better at this, those are the exact names I bid on too but didn’t win. 🙂
    Damn Shane, I get tired just reading your running stories!

  2. Yes, I like the bidding play by play. Since I pretty much gave up on auctions at current prices.

  3. We train in the winter – marathon and half’s spring and maintenance in the summer. I like the heat but this year has been brutal. Your times are amazing. I just run so I’m not a fat old guy –
    Nice job! You buy and sell domains? I thought this was a fitness blog?

      1. I was kidding – I can’t tell you how many names pi have bought fro your list and your times encourage me. This is the only blog I read daily

  4. Yes, it’s absolutely interesting. Keep ’em coming!

    I bid on NeverAge up to $115 if I remember correctly.

  5. I thought about running the 5k here in town, but I had to get up at 3am to set up our parade chairs and never woke up after I went back to bed! 19:49 is great…I’ll see if “Shane Cultra” from Bainbridge Island can beat it this fall at the Turkey Trot. 🙂

    Hooko is a great brandable, but the reserve is crazy.

    Keep up the good work, Shane. Love the buy/sell stories.

  6. I appreciate your stories and your domain bids and thought processes. I read every single day. Thanks!!!!

  7. Agree with the others, if you are out of ideas or short for time, just do the bidding stories and that’s more than worth the visit.

  8. Thanks Shane! Quick question: At Efty, which template do you like (for your landing pages)? Cheers!

    1. Carl,

      I haven’t found one that works better than another. I will certainly write a post on my successes and which lander I used when I sold it

  9. Yes, it is very interesting to see your bidding history. Please keep sharing. Thanks.

  10. I’ll just add to the ones who find your bidding interesting..something new to read!

  11. Sigh .. I really miss running! I’ve gained almost 30 pounds since getting Steamie (about 10lbs a year). I walk him so much that I don’t have the time or energy for anything else. These days we’re crushing the 100km a week mark (even over 110km).
    He was very sick last fall (meningitis) and then as soon as he started getting better Winter came with very cold temperatures. Essentually his healthy weight was always between 13-14 lbs .. and a little over 2 months ago he was at 18.5lbs. Last I checked about a week ago he was down below 15.5lbs. Yet with all that walking (and a bit more to/from work) I think I’ve only lost about 3lbs myself … if only I could drop the same in terms of percentage! lol
    I never got close to your speeds .. but the Summer before I got Steamie I was going out multiple times a week doing 10-17km a shot. Even did a couple half-marathons on my own .. including one at 1am where I hit 2 hours even .. your times are superhuman in comparison! lol
    As for your bidding .. add my vote as well. I really liked NeverAge!
    As for Krekk .. It reminds me of an old Sherpa show where someone mentioned how good the hard “K” was for marketing and that that was the reason for the naming of Kodak!
