Independence Day: Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday July 4th , 2018

 Could the older domain investors have been as successful as they were without money from the adult industry?  It’s question that really hasn’t been brought up.  Probably because its done and it doesn’t really matter.  To others its taboo to talk about.  To me, its just part of domain investing history.  But as I trace the paths to success there is a lot of commonality.   One, belief in the future of domain names. Two, patience.  Three, adult material.

Adult money allowed many of the early domain investors to grow their portfolio and fill their bank accounts.  Some of the biggest guys were known for having huge portfolios of typos and adult material. Even side businesses in the adult world. Talking to a domain investor that’s been in it for 15 plus years said it was hard for him because he just didn’t feel comfortable with adult material . But he saw others making hundreds of thousands, if not millions with the names.  The same with typos.  He was able to do it “clean” with non adult name with a few slipping in (no pun intended) with bulk purchases, and stuck to typins and typos until the resell market started to become a good income source.

I’m not judging.  If I would have entered domain investing at a different place in my life I may have joined in as well. But I came in with a family and at the tail end of traffic monetization.  A family that was usually within 5 feet of me working on the computer. It was just something that I couldn’t do at that point.   It’s no coincidence that the people making adult money didn’t have children running around.  I am not saying some didn’t, just saying that makes things easier without kids around when in that world.  I also not saying that investors that made adult money wouldn’t have made millions without it. On the contrary.  They are smart. They follow the money and at the time that is where the money was.   They have made millions without any adult material as well.  It just made it easier and gave them the money to be more patient and build a better and bigger portfolio.

All things that aren’t available today.  Today’s version of typo, typin, and adult traffic isn’t there in my opinion.  It has to be done with straight flipping domains.  Which I feel is a bit harder for the new investor.  It’s why they are throwing handfuls of darts into new Gs hoping they may be the new easy money.  It hasn’t and most likely won’t work.   And I don’t see a FriendFinder affiliate money laying around either.  Just going to have to work longer and harder but the end results can still be the same .   Here are today’s names at auction.

And Happy Fourth of July to All Americans.  Whether you love or hate our current situation we should all be grateful for everything we have in the United States.  We fought for freedom 142 years ago and there will continue to be things you have to fight for to move forward.

Domain of the Day:      Nice sounding brand for $12.  Maybe I just like it because its close to Cultra

 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   If you sell netting (bird, fish, shade, packaging) this would be a good name for you.  When I asked the seller  who would want the name he sent me a list of 300 people that are in the netting business. And that the keyword is taking in 60 extensions.
