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

Aug 04 2014

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   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  Worth of a bid  IMO but not getting any   This is the one getting all the action.   Might as well get both  Like it better without the “the” but already a PR3 and gets a little traffic  Good letters.  And not Adam Dickers so actually is for sale  No bids. Sounds like there would be a lot of movies  I’ll go with an over under of $550  I’m bidding on it but pretty sure someone is going to love it more than me.  Starting bid is $3000 and I don’t think that is too far off the value  A real word that people actually use.  These are the kind of 4N.nets you want to buy. Looking at the price tells me some others already know this  A whole portfolio of LLLL.coms that isn’t too far off the $5000 reserve.  Some very liquid names in there  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  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  Accountants like these longer names.  Tons of bids  Buy it and give it to them.  Ben Folds is a great piano player and entertainer  Popular last name  Doesn’t mean anything to me but still think it would make a great brand   Good name for our industry   Nothing more true has been ever said  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.
