Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday March 26th



Yesterday I went to the Illinois High School Indoor Track State Championships to see my daughter run.  At the meet a Freshman girl set the state record for 2 miles at 10 minutes 11 seconds.  For a non runner its hard to understand exactly how fast it is but obviously if its the fastest all time you know its moving.  The National record for 2 miles for a Freshman outdoor was set by the Olympian phenom Jordan Hasay at 10:06.  And I think she is going to crush it and be the first to break 10.   Everyone has their sport that impresses them, but I find track an amazing sport.  There certainly is genetic ability but it isn’t realized unless a lot of training and hard work is put in.  It’s all on you.  No team to help you (relays of course have others running) This young lady had both the God given talent and you could tell she put in the work. She was small and young looking, but she definitely had been working out.  She was more fit looking than most of the younger girls.  And her stride looked much more mature than a 15 year old would have.  My daughter placed 4th in state but you can imagine that the 10:11 was pretty much what everyone talked about.  I really enjoyed watching a future/present star run live but I was much happier that my daughter was happy with her day.  And if you’re married and with kids you know all that matters is the girls are happy. Enjoy your Sunday   Here are today’s names Click for current price

Domain Of The Day: Competing for your cloud storage business

Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Only two bids at $15 but bet it closes over $500   I could use some but people pay a ton of money for weaves. 34 bids   Nice little  Upgrade name for a bunch of entities   Angel and dot org are always a good pair.  18 years old   French for In The Hood.  8 bids  16 years old.  Was there even apps 16 years ago?, and  are the three low end today  Great pattern.  The kind of 5N you want to buy IMO   I’m calling every name with a V a virtual reality name now   Free thing names continue to get bids  The Chinese are loving this.  Double what the other have gone for lately     Nice keyword for the dot cc.  10 bids     I see still know guys playing 30 hands at a time for days on end.  Poker peaked but its not going away    Sounds kind of techy


Domains With One or No Bids If you are in your forties and followed US Football you knew who Ed was Canna name. Trying to make it sound like medicine Sounds like a place I’m going to get an incredible deal. And last years model No bids. Says exactly what the company would do Races around the nation that probably could use this name. Not a ton of money but flippable I think I’ve been told this a few times.
