DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Friday, May 15th, 2015

May 15 2015

Before I get to what I think is another solid list of names I have a funny story. Some of you may already know but the name of my “shell” company is Rocket Donkey Media.  And when I send people money or receive it the name comes through as that name.  Everyone seems to get a kick out of it (no pun intended) and they ask how in the world I chose that name.  The story is I saw it on a drop list and thought it was memorable, funny, and would be an easy logo.  Everything you want in a brand.  My slogan became “Taking your ass to the top” .  I told someone that yesterday and he replied.  That’s ironic because my company name is Turtle Drain. “making my way to the bottom slower than hell”  I thought it was pretty funny .  Here are today’s names  I am a bit biased here but I am pretty sure someone in Chicago would pay more than $12 for this one.  No bidders. $12.  16 years old  Going to do well.  Original Gangster  Something something HD.  16 years old. No bidders. You wish there were no bidders  One bid at $950   Doing 5 times better than  of the day.  These things keep going up……..and up….and up  $50 to go to meet average price of the NLN.coms as set by me  If you’ve haven’t had a Giz you haven’t lived  The resale is good in New York but not on this domain.  No bidders. $12  Do I take Terrific Tom Brady or not this year?   I am now recommending purchases on all great numbers.  This one is doing well  Under $75 at press time.  The Xs are less that $50 a piece  Solid marketing name for $25.  Only one bidders  Only 2 bidders. Under $25  Vape em if you got em  Starter dot cc.  But most are starter

NEW GODADDY COUPON CODE: $1.99 New Registration Godaddy hitched149  As good as any wedding photography name out there.  And its a website   Build it and I will visit.  Another lovely name  Q at the front works.   Some room to move IMO  Shows how worthless .us is  A great brand that I think everyone will “get”.  At $1  Love this one.  16 years old.  Everyone always is to the party.  At $1  Every TV show in the US is required to be.  Great brand for someone that provides that service.  And a term that everyone knows because every show begins with the term   The double 5 is second only to the double 8  I think the Chinese market will like this one  Because not everyone has an iWatch….or a phone…..or a clock  Got a great bid early

SEDO’s Live Auctions Going on Now  19 years old.  Everyone loves looking up wheel and tire info online.  Because nobody knows what 35X-42C means on the side  Lovely Midwest real estate name  Easy to get. Hard to monetize  Every town seems to have one.   Of course they all sell carpet  LLL.nets are making a little run lately  Would have sold for $10K a decade ago IMO  Getting lots of love.  No bidders.  Make your money back by selling one grow light to pot growers  Everyone should own one.  But few will.  Going to have to have over $10K and pay top dollar because of First  Sell the house and buy it  I am a big fan of modern domains.  No bidders so it won’t be a big investment   The kind of keyword it takes to make a dot biz worth more than hand reg   Can’t think of a better name for a nanny finding site. maybe  I’m buying these types of names right now.  Not 4s but round, three characters

    I have to give you props Shane for being ahead of the .cc curve. Things are really heating up in LLL and NNN and starting to simmer in NNNN too. I bought a lot of LLL’s last year for nothing and I’m getting lots of inquiries every week (China mostly) including a current negotiation in the high $1,xxx range.

    Wholesale floor seems to be in the $200-300 range for non-vowel/good letter llls.

    Thanks again!
