Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday, May 3rd, 2024

Apologies again for missing the post on Wednesday. In Las Vegas for the D3 conference, a great group of OG domain investors and between the great conference and seeing old friends, time moved quickly. Incredible alpha and feedback that not only helps you be better at what you do, but hearing about their lives, and what they are up to, is my ideal place to be. I’ve known many of them for 15 years. We’re all still passionate about domain names and appreciate the opportunities it has brought us all.

One thing common topic in the private conversations were Godaddy’s issues. We all want them to succeed. We want to be their partner. Help them build, improve, and give tools that help us, help them. That being said, people are leaving in numbers I hadn’t heard before. For the first time, I think Godaddy is vulnerable. They are not too big to fail. They aren’t going to fail but they may start missing some financial numbers in the coming years. They are going to need partners. Using their size and scope in exchange for modern tools and products. When the new strings come they are an important provide,r but if they don’t have the domain management tools and UI UX that many new companies have. Thus opening a door that competitors are beginning to peek into. This conference was the first time I saw big domain investors moving names away. Prior they were merely putting new names into other registrars. Now they are starting to slowly move their portfolio over. Sure Godaddy makes their money on the “normies”. Value-added services and expiry. But even normies will see the sleek new tools from others and change over. I never root against Godaddy. They are a very important part of our ecosystem. Their expiry names are the lifeblood of all domain investors. But when I go to a conference full of new tech, and user experience talk, I can only think of our biggest players being left sitting on the porch in their rocking chair and they need to be out playing with the kids.

On a positive note. It was the first time EVER that I won every single thing I bet on. I bet against the White Sox and won all three bets. I bet one horse race and the horse won. $2070 in total. With crypto, I don’t have any urge to gamble since I am gambling every day on memes and other coins. It’s merely that the White Sox are so bad I knew they would lose at least 2 of 3. They gave it a go 2 of the nights but in typical fashion, blew it in the late innings. I already rock Sox plates on my car. Time to add a hat soon

Domain of the Day: Exudes sharing IMO

Quote of the Day: “Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.” —Henry David Thoreau

Dynadot Aftermarket Domains Top pick of the AI auctions this round for me Sounds like a partnership Last bidder walked away and gave away his deposit. Let’s see what happens this time Love this one. 3rd party airport parking or domain parking Under $1K is a good price IMO Like don’t love. Adapt would be an incredible name 99 of these shorties. I think there is some value here Found a lot of bids out of the gate First names are ideal for AI products IMO. Personalizes them

Namejet Names at Auction (All No Reserve) The AI part has it with the most bids on the board I sat on a plane next to a guy who does this for a living. Tracks down cyber criminals Memorable brand Of course I like this one A typo of the the Barbie that everyone knows Marketing name only in my opinion. But people spend millions on marketing for one campaign Sea is a fairly popular keyword for naming tech companies A little over the top with buzzwords but definitely memorable Only two bidders Not sure what the use case is. Almost the opposite of a launch pad. But its at $1500 so I know nothing

Sedo and Catched Names at Auction

Sedo is taking submissions for 3 Letter dot com, net, and org auction. I’ve picked up some great names in this type of auction in the past at Sedo Love this one. A couple different meanings as well. I think this bid gets beat One bid at $500 I don’t think it meets reserve but cool looking name and yes, I’ve never heard of dot foo either It couldn’t possibly right? I had no idea broker existed

Auto.Express good use of the dot express tld which nobody knew existed Could do an affiliate sales site with this one with some good SEO. Has a few bids Fast growing industry. 2 bids I don’t want to be in this club Would call my growlight company this

2× Backlinks have this with the most bids on the board Makes me think of animals

DNWE Domains for SALE (All BIN) Under $100 reserve. Reversed would be five figure name but still works reversed IMO and Both available at $325 at press time 1998 Birthday

Godaddy Names with Bids Sounds like a crypto trading platform. No Zen in traditional trading Most bids on the Godaddy board today Biggest price for a raw domain (no backlinks). Upgrade name for so many companies I see piss but four-letter pronounceable are really hot right now Guns or therapy What a great name for providing comps for some industry If Red Lobster can avoid bankruptcy they should buy this for their marketing campaign I am going to try and buy this I thought of it as a typo but hundreds of companies and tools using this name Let’s not move to digital currency. Lets go backwards to cash Sounds like a startup for some delivery service Long all health names Ben Franklin is in the public domain So many people aren’t the only type of dot cc I buy Cool brand There is no planning to fail only failing to plan. So plan perfect Exudes trendy restaurant or supplies Big dot net discount Open vessel name New York Arts & Entertainment

Godaddy with One Bid or Fewer
