I wanted to thank everyone who’s sent me all the incredible Christmas presents so far this year. I am humbled by all the generosity and can’t believe that simply doing a list every day and writing a few articles could lead to making so many friends. I do have one gift that I want to personally thank the giver, NetCompanies, the owners of the awesome domain Swag.com, sent over some California wine that is unbelievable. It really was some nice swag. You California people have it made, good weather, the beach, and some of the best wine in the world. Here are today’s names.
BananaSplit.com Easily worth the $1500 initial bid requirement IMO. Getting the name after you buy it is a different story. At least one person I know has purchased a 3rd party name being auctioned at Godaddy and had the owner not return emails or transferred the name. And all Godaddy could do was cancel their auction account. Out of all the names that are auctioned it doesn’t happen often but it shouldn’t happen ever. If a big name is to be listed on an auction site there has to be a guarantee it is going to be transferred if the reserve is met. Otherwise bidders will lose faith in the platform
1Y.net– There were two two-character .net domain sales in 2013 according to Namebio are 9A.net at $3,850, I9.net at $3,000, X7.net at $4,888, and R3.net at $2,201, for an average of $3,485. The reserve on this one is well below that average.
GiantHosting.com Strong sounding name. 13 years old
DFCE.com Vowel at the end, 12 years old, and all bad scrabble letters. What else can you ask for in a LLLL.com
LasVegasTransport.com No bidders. Not a bad deal for $12 IMO. Transportation is the heart of the city.
K9F.com – these ccc.com’s are always liquid, and this one might actually have a meaning —- it could be a shortener for K9FitClub.com, K9Fasteners.com, K9Favorite.com, K9Facts.com, K9Farm.com (NSFW), K9Finder.net, K9Fest.com, or many more — those are all live websites, and ZFBot lists 316 registered domains that start with K9F.
ILoveOrganic.com You know now you know someone only eats Organic? You don’t need to know, they’ll tell you within 5 minutes. Only one bidder
OldMaple.com I always say if the name sounds like a good wine then it’s probably a good domain. This sounds like a good wine
OldWalnut.com I guess this one applies too. No bidders
SilverBook.com Color Noun Dot com is worth more than $12 IMO. And 9 years old
PokerChair.com I know people buy poker tables. You have to have chairs if you have a table….I think
PremierGold.com People love to name their companies with the word Premier. Makes them sound like the best.
PremierTraining.com First thing that came to mind was a personal trainer but I guess it could be any kind of training. 18 years old
PriceWorm.com I like it because it’s a cute brand. Pretty easy logo as well
3180.com Surprisingly low amount of bidders
TigerWalk.com You know what this is if you’re an Auburn fan. Worth having even if you’re not IMO
FoodGuide.com I don’t think I’ve ever seen 427 bidders on a Namejet auction
SportsCarInsurance.com Has value to a car insurance company
