Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday October 29th, 2017

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
I just loved Josh’s intro about his dot US “experiment”.  An experiment that netted him $20,000.   Just an idea he tried and obviously it worked.  It shows how much money there is to be made in our industry if you are intelligent and work hard.  As much as I love a great story of a UDRP or an article about activities from a paid sponsor, I miss the Domain Sherpa type stories from people that have had some success and where that story would have been told in full.  Once again, proving what a big hole was left once Michael stopped publishing. And as long as the hate blogs and comments out there exist I don’t see anyone coming in soon to put out some good stories. Here are today’s names, you have to click to see current price. 
Quote of the Day:  “Anonymity breeds meanness”  -Sam Altman
Domain of the Day:  EPAU.com   Every hospital has one of these.  2 bids
 
Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids
Biitcoins247.com   Nothing needs to be said.  Bitcoin runs the world.  Not really, it just runs the speculation world
InstantLoan.net    Keyword is so strong that the dot net is worth three figures IMO
LightsUp.com   At four figures.  Not sure exactly why.  Maybe
UFWT.com   I think U at the beginning is undervalued.  United something of something fits perfectly and if you can get that for under $200 or even $250 I think you’ll be fine.  My opinion only. Don’t buy anything on my opinion.  Don’t even order lunch based on my opinion .
HowToKnow.com  1999 birthday.   You know how I know?  Because it is
EscortLasVegas.com     Las Vegas is the king of Escorts.
PrivateDealer.com   A bit generic but would make a good marketing name
CognitiveMedia.com  Another media name getting a lot of bids
GGLC.com   Shows the elite LLLL.com are still fetching close to $2K
333398.com  Four threes gets you four figures
MulticulturalMarketing.com   Certainly wha marketing companies are trying to do.  You can show that you are a specialist with this one.   1999 domain
 
Godaddy Names With One or No Bids
KJTS.com It’s a CHiP but not a big fan of the K and the J.
GetMassaged.com Too early for Harvey Weinstein material? There is actually one bidder
iEnergize.com Good solar or wind power name for $12. Good, not great
FleetWallet.com Probably originally registered as a transportation name. Now its a crypto name
PrepDaddy.com Let Prep Daddy help you prepare for……………… And no bids at $12
SeedsAndMore.com At least you know what they do
LandscapeEngine.com Decent name for a design program
Namejet  and Sedo Names at Auction

7KL.com and 9KL.com   For those of you who like the NLL.com

Welcome to ICANN60!

ICANN Blog ICANN Blog:

Welcome to ICANN60 – our Annual General Meeting. This is our first ICANN meeting in the Gulf Cooperation Council, and it will undoubtedly be a very busy one.  It is my first time in Abu Dhabi and I am glad to be here.

So much of our work is done over email, over the phone and in the comfort of our own offices and homes. For those of you here, I hope the sessions and schedule allows you to meet people, put faces to names, and build upon your working relationships.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to do so, please look at the latest Report to the Board, published just recently. This report details what’s going on in the ICANN organization, and will provide you with really good insight into what we’re working on, and our priorities.  

We will be holding another open Q&A with the ICANN organization Executive Team this week, so I hope you can attend and ask us any questions you might have. This doesn’t replace the public forums, but is meant to give you another chance for us to talk and answer your questions.

In the spirit of transparency, I hope you have the chance to look at the flow charts and manuals for the Process Documentation Initiative to see how far we’ve come, with your input, this year in mapping out how all of our fairly complicated processes actually work.

I’d also like to encourage you to look at the recently launched Accountability Indicators, an improvement to the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) Dashboard that allows us to present our progress better against ICANN's strategic and operating plans and make the data more accessible.

I hope you have time to think about your day to day business, as well as some of the larger issues we face as part of the Internet Governance community. As many of you know, we are seeing many legislative and policy proposals around the world tackling issues that can and will impact our work. One example is the European Commission’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will likely effect how WHOIS data is displayed, it could impact our ability to maintain a single global WHOIS system. In turn, this will likely impact either ICANN's agreements or its ability to enforce contractual compliance of its agreements using a single and consistent approach. Data protection and privacy is certainly on the minds of many. I hope you can join the cross-community session this week on GDPR and contribute to discussions that will be occurring during and after our time here in Abu Dhabi.

Together we are working hard in service of ICANN’s mission. My team and I are here to support the community in its important work. I hope to meet with many of you on the ground here in Abu Dhabi, and to have productive conversations. Please let me know if there is anything you need, and stop me in the halls to say hello. Safe travels to those of you on the way here, and to those of you following along from home, I look forward to connecting with you too.

Almost 60% of new gTLDs are parked – is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Morgan Linton Morgan Linton: I find myself somewhat frequently checking nTLDStats.com to follow what’s going on in the world of new gTLDs. One of the recent trends I’ve been keeping an eye on is .TOP overtaking .XYZ as the “most registered” new gTLD and .LOAN is getting closer and closer to overtaking .XYZ to move into the #2 spot. […]
