DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Jun 22 2015

Escrow.com

Some great names on today’s list.  With the movement of the LLLL.com and 5N.com market there has been some excellent opportunities for a quick, less than 6 month flip.  Aaron had a few on yesterday’s post but pretty much every 5N.com sale lately has been for more than it was 6 months ago.   On another note, I’ve heard several times from various people that they would never buy a name at auction that is owned by a professional domain broker or “big time” domain investor. They feel that if it could have been sold for a good profit it would have.  And that they’ve probably worked every possible end user and evidently nobody wanted it.  It’s just not true most of the time.  You are giving the brokers too much credit.  They simply don’t have time to call and send out emails to every possible end user.  Many of the lesser names never even get touched unless they get an inquiry.   I personally haven’t reached out to a possible end user in 2 years.  Yes many were listed on newsletters but often it was at a very high price and if you can get it at a sizable discount you can leave yourself room to make a profit.  The key to me is do you think the name is worth the price regardless of the history. I’m not assuming I’m better than the previous owner but we all know, sometimes timing is everything.  How many names have you sold or let drop where a good offer comes in afterwards?  I know I’ve had a few.  Or how many names do you look back from two years ago and realized its now worth 4 times what you sold it for?  Been there.  I know for a fact that the reasons Andrew Rosener, Elliot Silver, and Daniel Negari have put some of their portfolio up for sale has nothing to do with tired names and everything to do with raising cash for other investments.  Yet many people avoided the names because they thought they were getting leftovers.  I use this analogy.  If the hottest girl you’ve ever dated is single because her boyfriend thought she wasn’t pretty enough for him, don’t worry about her being a leftover.  Take advantage of the opportunity and enjoy your new hot girlfriend.    Here are today’s names

RSGI.com  19 years old and I for International.   Good English LLLL.com

DeadEye.com   Good brand that brings thought of accuracy.   A good buy at under $500 IMO and its way under that

DivorceHelpNow.com   Easy to remember and certainly people need divorce help. 17 years old.  No bidders so less than the cost of a lead

RMRR.com   Three Rs, one price.  Although my old eyes can’t read it without glasses if it is in small letters

CRDT.com  Credit, no vowels

Manzhao.com I don’t think I’ve seen many GD names with 100 bids before

PDTK.com   A couple days out and already getting some good bids.  K for Kute.  Kite

153999.com  6N.coms don’t have much value unless they have the special numbers or triple repeating.  This has both

777725.com  And this one as well.  Could hit $500

TLT.cc  So nice to put up a .cc again.

TheDevelopers.com  It ends in a few days but caught my eye early.  So many uses for this one

VERIFIED GODADDY COUPON CODE: $1.99 New Registration Godaddy STATE

TerribleDomainNames.com  Love this listing.  Seller says he is selling a list of 62 names he is embarrassed of.  Well done

DirtyPictures.com   Generic form of Snapchat

Wisconsin.info   Pretty good dot info for this price.  Good tourism name or build it out yourself

FrenchFry.com  Hardly any bidders.  I think the seller scared them all off

Dobi.com  Met reserve so it is going to sell.  One of Domain Holdings listings that you are going to see more of now that that Flippa bought them

GotForex.com  10 years old.  Forex keyword pays $4 and Forex Trading is in the $15 range.  Good affiliate money to be made with forex domains.  Its why they go for such a high price

SEDO’s Live Auctions Going on Now

StingRays.com  Without the S its a great brand. With the S its a site about StingRays.  Team, car, or fish

Cords.com  When I wear cords and start a fire between my legs when I walk I know its time to take off some weight.  Although I think the play is more the cords you plug in

ICAA.com   Great LLLL.com and in my opinion, under $700 is a good deal, although that’s going to be my bid

OldBaseballCards.com  No bidders.  Not tons of value but if you bought and sold old baseball cards then I would think you would want to own this

557766.com  This would fetch a great price at Godaddy

DN.tv  I figured you guys would like this one

PhotoShare.com  The generic equivalent of Imgur

QOZI.com   Cozy?  I may be reaching a bit

    Shane,
    I think you bring up a very good point in regards to the approach most people have in buying domain names from you or any other “professional” in this industry. I personally wanted to invest in the LLLL market so when Adam Dicker put up his entire portfolio of LLLL names I bought it. I think it was one of the better investments I have made and he was very easy to work with. Plus that transaction has progressed into he and I doing other business together such as website development etc. There is an education that comes with every transaction so look at it as a learning experience and grow from it.

    Completely agree with Ken. Every domain purchase/sale is a learning experience. Shane, as always, love your post.

    Agree!
    I purchased a LLLL for $800 from a domain big gun a few months ago and last week sold it for $7.5k on an inbound enquiry. If the name is good its good. and yes timing is everything.

    Remember Mike Berkens’s acquisition of SexEducation.com for $120,000 in 2006 and then sold it at Namecon auction early this year for only $23,000? Someone got it for a good bargain.
