THE BIG AFTERMARKET LIST: Saturday’s Domains at Auction or Dropping on May 17th, 2014

May 17 2014

Yesterday Domain Holdings released their quarterly results.  It’s always nice to see data and DnJournal shared some good stuff with general information on who was buying, average prices, how many phone calls and emails they sent, etc.  But as a domain investor it really doesn’t mean much to me other than I’m glad to see any business in our industry succeed. In reality, the only info that really helps me is what names sold and for how much.  To do well I need to understand my inventory.  The value and the potential prices I can sell it for.  Especially the prices that can be achieved by giving it to the best.  But we really didn’t get that information.  Total sales and average prices don’t help me much since I don’t know what names were sold.  I assume their were a good amount of numerics since there was a high percentage of Chinese sales.  But other than that I simply will give a congrats and get back to watching for sales and purchases with names behind them.  That’s the only way I get comps and info that I can build on.   Here are today’s names.  17 years old and C for corporation  Because getting a job that pays is so much better than those that don’t. 13 years old and memorable  A lot of vowels, easy to type. That’s all I got  Don’t laugh, it’s a business.  You can find the Kate Upton of cats. No bidders  If you’re going to get the above you might as well throw $12 at this one   Liquid gold. Actually not really gold but definitely at least silver and very liquid  These are the new 4n.coms.  As in they are the price that the 4ns were a few years ago  I don’t know if you’re ready to start tradin’ domains but I’d thought I’d point out that they’re selling for some pretty good prices now

NEW!!!! Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day.. Domain Discount Club, use promo code for $59 membership and $8.29 renewals CJC35NEWC  Doesn’t mean anything to me other than it’s 18 years old and I think it would make a nice brand  Sounds creepy but would make a good app name.  Memorable and short  I know it’s a Beck album but would also make a good Pot Shop name   You might as well start by concentrating on one thing.  This is as good as any. Although this wifi thing may take you out  The second biggest business here in Illinois after corn. In Brasil it’s first  Bridal business is HUGE and the plus is you also get to be a DJ Already a LasVegas Bride and 58 million results so could be worth a bid  I think the LA and the short will keep this name closer to four digits  They’ll know what you do if you own this one.  That or you’re a domain investor  This is a 5n I would actually buy

And in Case You Missed Yesterday’s Book of 10 (auction)  DNA sequencing has become part of every day life as we figure out how to best take care of our bodies and predict our future. Value grows from here IMO (auction)  Su Hanchen was a famous Chinese painter.  Chinese names have really risen in price of the last two years.  Low reserve. (auction)   And that sequencing will be here.  People are already paying hundreds to find out their genetic dispositions.  This is a perfect name for someone selling those kits (auction)  There is no bigger market right now that Health Care.  And one millions of Americans have been forced to buy from the exchanges.  Big lead gen money in this market.  (auction) In a world of gadgets electonic engineers are one of the most sought after trades in the world.  Again, good lead gen money here for companies seeking these recruits and Universities trying to entice students.   (auction) Great name for anything someone needs removed.  Tattoo, bad articles on the net, even credit problems.  Auction price is cheap IMO at this point  (auction) The dot org sold for $10,600.  Americans need to remember that remortgage is the term used in other countries for ReFinance. And you know would sell for six figures.  (auction) NNN.nets have increased in value over the last year.  I’ve heard the bubble talk for the last two years. They are the same people that missed the last 100% gain.  Don’t be the bubblers   $2400 sold recently for $1500.  Lots of uses but the NFL combine comes to mind first and a Farm Combine next.  (auction) Great looking name and very memorable. Looks the same forward and backward.   The Z is good in Europe. The price shows that already   Private jets are big business.  Selling them or booking them is good lead gen

(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.
