THE BIG AFTERMARKET LIST: Sunday’s Domains at Auction or Dropping on May 25th, 2014

May 25 2014

Yesterday I had a new experience.  I lost a sale over escrow fees.  Not that I wasn’t willing to give in and cover them it’s that one of my counters was to accept their price as long as they cover escrow fees.  They said “no thanks, we’ll pass”  Not on the escrow fee but the whole name.  It’s a name that benefits this company more than any other company and was in my best interest to sell it to them.  I say that here but of course not to them.  I accepted it at a lower price than most names because I knew this was my best chance to profit on it short term.  I’m pretty sure they must have gotten cold feet or just got nervous with the whole thing, but even after going back and saying that I would cover fees, lets get this done, they said they were no longer interested and that the price was more than they wanted to pay.  Even though they made the offer.  Oh well, out nothing but time but I have to admit I was counting my chickens before they hatched. Usually when I accept an offer it’s smooth sailing from there. Here are today’s names.  17 years old. C for Corporation or Cooperation  Not sure what people want reduced but whoever buys this site has a chance to do a lot of reducing.  But not your wallet. Not a lot of bidders  Looks like others agree that this is a great name for a tech company.  And much shorter than MotherofDragonsLabs that was my first choice  DN names sell well to Domainers if they are in the first two letters.  This play is that these are very good letters

Time.Travel  One of my favorite travel names.   Not a new gTLD, one of the first ever registered dot travel   This is the type of domain that whole companies can be built around    Like Igloo, it’s so universal it could be branded for anything  Surprised how low the bidding is on this one

NEW!!!! Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day.. 99 cent Transfer or New Registration GOFD722A  No bidders. 17 years old. For the price, would make a nice brand   Q is actually a good letter for CCCs IMO.  Because it’s memorable and doesn’t have to stand for the first letter of a word   Sounds like a scary name but also mean tough and mean   As a runner I see the value here  You know I like the LLLL.coms that end in A


Have a name at auction and need more exposure?  Send me an email. We may be able to help. If you have an auction you want to promote, email us for details.   *All names chosen by me, Shane, and the goal of this list is to have all links be paid through commission . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct.
