Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday, May 17th, 2024

Talking the other day to a founder of a billion-dollar company. Had a 30-minute meeting about many things but was surprised to find out that he has exactly zero investments outside his company. All his money was in his company or in cash. Every bit of his money was invested in himself. No seed investments. No Series A. Just heads down and reinvesting. Taking a little at a time as he needs it. My Dad always used to say it. Every time I told him about my investments he would say “There’s no return better than investing in yourself” He’s not wrong. I gave up a ton of returns by investing back in the business. I have a lot in retained earnings but in 30 years never took a lump sum out if we had a good year. Always left it to reinvest in things that could make us more money. I loved hearing that this person did the same thing but with a few more zeros.

Namejet Names at Auction (All No Reserve) As seen on Sherpa. I loved it. Great call to action for security (or birth control) This I didn’t like Sounds like Sores Open vessel for driving-related company or products Great letters. Little League 24 bidders I would order a pizza here. To be fair I would order one anywhere I think it makes a pretty good pet brand. Another one I loved on Sherpa Closes today. Under a dozen bidders Only 7 bidders. Brand makes it sounds like fast acting Nice 5L closes today Make me think of Cranium or brain

Sedo and Catched Names at Auction

Their auction of LLL domains just started. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many LLL.nets for sale in one place in over a decade I think it sells at this reserve because the Q is the first slot To sell this better be near the low end of the reserve Same This one has a chance of selling as well. Two Ys are tough but maybe brand as Ree or Rye And of all the I think this will end up as the highest price People still use proxy servers all the time to cover their tracks. 5 bids This is going to do very very well Another one with a great keyword and a relatively unknown tld One more This is a business now.
