DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Monday 8/4

Aug 04 2014


Escrow.com

We’re entering a stretch that is usually the slowest time of year for many businesses including domain investing (if it’s not for you then good job!) .  It’s also the time where most families take a vacation before school starts in a few weeks.  Even the President of the US historically goes on vaca next week. While I realize that my little city doesn’t represent the world, it’s not completely unrelated to other cities in the US.  The biggest difference being we are a university town with 50,000 people coming back in August and leaving in May.  The students aren’t my customers but those that teach and provide services for them are.  I send out newsletters to a few thousand of them each week and I know it’s vacation time because I get those automated responses when people are on vacation. As soon as I send out a newsletter my email explodes with 50 or so emails back.  Fortunately for me there are also lots of apartments and businesses that are also trying to get thing looking nice before the students come back as well.    Here are today’s names

Rupel.com   You may have loved the Flemish police show on TV but probably getting more interest as a brand potential and last name. Under $100 at press time

SmallPet.com  Worth of a bid  IMO but not getting any

SmallPets.com   This is the one getting all the action.   Might as well get both

ThePartyMix.com  Like it better without the “the” but already a PR3 and gets a little traffic

IOPN.com  Good letters.  And not Adam Dickers so actually is for sale

EndlessMovies.com  No bids. Sounds like there would be a lot of movies

5DB.com  I’ll go with an over under of $550

TheLucky.com  I’m bidding on it but pretty sure someone is going to love it more than me.

Tubeless.com  Starting bid is $3000 and I don’t think that is too far off the value

Begets.com  A real word that people actually use.

0989.net  These are the kind of 4N.nets you want to buy. Looking at the price tells me some others already know this

HBHH.com  A whole portfolio of LLLL.coms that isn’t too far off the $5000 reserve.  Some very liquid names in there

Group.io  I haven’t figured out pricing quite yet on .io.  It looks like the very short, app oriented names, are getting the best prices.  This one is already pretty high

Automobiles.XYZ   A whole portfolio of .XYZ domains.  Getting some interest

ChatFriends.com  Already met reserve.  Not much bigger on the net than Chat and text apps

NEW FRIDAY!!!! Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day.. 20% OFF New Purchases fbhpd20

TaxAccounting.com  Accountants like these longer names.  Tons of bids

BenFoldsFive.com  Buy it and give it to them.  Ben Folds is a great piano player and entertainer

Behn.com  Popular last name

Mutty.com  Doesn’t mean anything to me but still think it would make a great brand

NamePulse.com   Good name for our industry

 ExerciseMore.com   Nothing more true has been ever said

Manual.org  I dream of a place that has manuals for every product ever made.  It’s like a wet dream

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.
