Morgan Linton Morgan Linton: One of the roadblocks that I’ve seen many startup founders struggle with is how to get together the funds for a domain name they really want, but can’t quite afford at their current stage. A few months ago a founder that I know reached-out to me about a domain name they wanted to buy, they budget was […]

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday May 1st

Domain Shane Domain Shane: For the last 7 years I’ve talked and instructed other people and businesses on how to attract more buyers using traditional and Internet based advertising.  All the while letting our own website become obsolete and not practicing what I am supposed to be so good at.  Once I met the dream maker Travis I knew I could change that and bring us back.  He custom coded a new site that is so much better than we’ve ever had and built a site that not only showcases why people should come to our business  but makes it easier to shop and prepare for a trip to the nursery.  I can also better utilize social media by making landing pages and a blog that will also help scoop up some Google keywords.  It’s still in beta as there are still pictures to upload (we have thousands but there are a lot of plants in the world) and a few hiccups here and there, but its exciting to be able to get back to where we were supposed to be.   I never take for granted the skills and hard work of the coders that are able to bring our ideas to fruition. Everyone has ideas but they are worthless without the skills of the people that can bring it to life.   Here are today’s names.    Click for Current Price
 
Quote Of The Day  “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.” – Bob Dylan” 
Domain Of The Day:  JFK.net   Perhaps the most famous initials in all of American History
Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids
Daycares.com   I have no idea why its this high
Photometry.com  Is the science of the measurement of light but makes a good brand as well
GroupData.com   19 years old.  Data names continue to draw nice bids
QualityAdvisors.com  Because TerribleAdvisors just doesn’t have the same feel
GMB.cc   Crossed four figures but I think it will continue to grow in value.  My opinion only, don’t buy anything based on my opinion of the sleepy eyed guy will be mean to me
Netzy.com   Under $75 at press time. Bet it ends up over $250 by the end
BioWaste.com   Good brand name but bad if you are actually in possession
XNCI.comOSYT.com, and PYIR.com  The 3 LLLL.com expiring today
886336.com   Double 8s to start and then a good pattern.  IMO the only names that will have increased future value are this quality and above
55999.net   Top tier 5N.net
Domains That I Like With One or No Bids
Ganaf.com Big fan of pronounceable 5L.com for $12
ZipGum.com Nice name for caffeine gum
CreepyCards.com Could have some fun with this one. Like a card that says “If I could be anything it would be your bathwater”
NoVaccines.org The stupidest movement ever but they may want to buy this
InsideMyHead.com Nice blog name for $12
INeedBoobs.com A go fund me site for breasteses
SingleBrew.com Keurig is a trademark so people use single brew to describe makers that make one cup at a time
MakeYourPitch.com Looking for investors. Make your pitch.
DetoxClay.com It’s a thing. Used to be called just clay
XB11.com the repeating number gives it value. Put it at a $300 BIN on Afternic
Other Godaddy Domains With Bids

SEDO and Other Auction Houses
OGQ.com    At $300 at press time.  Looks to have a reserve that is reasonable that the name will sell
FactOfTheDay.com   Easy build out.  Only need to put up one fact each day
Zunky.com    Nice little 5L.com for the price
Anticipated.com    14 year old dictionary term. Under $700 at press time.   Something to look forward to
Namejet Auction
IronLion.com  Sounds like a Chinese name or a 80s hair band
Huntn.com   How they spell it south of the Mason Dixon land
HVACStore.com  Great name to sell online parts to the HVAC market
HVACWarehouse.com   This one has a ridiculous reserve.  Stick to the name above
HMRI.com  22 years old.  Reserve is almost met.  I for Institute
ICRR.com   Another 22 year old LLLL.com     Probably the same reserve as the above but not doing as well
StarWeddings.com  Uniregistry thinks its a good name.  Their the top bidder
OHDT.com   Same here.  Uni has been buying a lot of LLLL.com to fill in the gap from when they sold the 1000 LLLL.com.   And they are buying them for below the price they sold them for.   It’s working out very well
Clobber.com  Love this one.  I could see this as a startup name
DroneExperts.com   Drone mechanics and pilots are gong to be a big new industry
Heathcote.com  I think this one is being overlooked.  Upgrade name for several entities and a surname
1BC.com  Can never go wrong owning a NLL.com IMO
TheDing.com    Some want the ding, some want the dong.   No bidders
HairTaco.com  No value but love saying it out loud
 
Have a name at auction and need more exposure? Send me an email. I Charge $10 per name per day. 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 . (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. I hand choose my names but I am paid to make this list by the auction houses, individuals that are auctioning names, and Godaddy affiliate links.

How a Startup Founder Negotiated and Purchased Snappa.com – With Chris Gimmer

Domain Sherpa Domain Sherpa: Chris Gimmer and his co-founder built a pretty slick piece of software called Snappa. I liked it so much I became a paying customer just nine months after their launch.But they launched on a .io domain name and – as Gimmer describes in "How (and Why) We Purchased the Snappa.com Domain for $40,000" – their "cool startup domain name" left their customers confused and questioning the longevity of their operations. So, negotiating the price down from $84,500, they bought Snappa.com for $40,000 on a payment plan.But nothing is ever as easy as it sounds, and in this interview Gimmer explains the details behind his thought process at each stage of his bootstrapped SaaS startup.
