Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday August 30th

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
I have never been averse to risk.  Some people lose sleep, get sick to their stomach, and can’t concentrate when they have a risky proposition about to have an outcome.  It’s never really bothered me.  Maybe I compartmentalize, maybe I’m stupid and don’t realize the real consequences, maybe I just know that I got everything I have through risk and hard work so if I lose part of it, I can get it back. Early on,  I wanted more than I had and it led to straight up gambling.  I had no patience and honestly needed action to feel alive.  I had to have instant return.   This existed for decades.  It wasn’t until I had real income, real wealth that I moved from gambling to heavy risk.  I’ll never be low risk, that’s just not me.  But I have moved the percentage of my high risk to a much lower amount.  The amount of money I want to make now isn’t best achieved through gambling.  Gambling was necessary (at least in my mind back then) to get the capital to build the businesses I wanted.  Businesses that would then provide the stable income and rid the need of high risk.  Now I have them and I protect my money a bit more than I did.  I have responsibilities that are above myself and now include family and employees.  I mess up the money and more are effected than just me.  I would be gambling with someone else’s future now.
I now have zero interest in casinos and even struggle to bet sports.  The amount of money it takes to move the needle is too high and that same amount pisses me off because I think of all the things I could buy had I not lost it.   I would have put money in bitcoin back at $500 but I’m not putting it in at $4700.   If it goes to $20K great, but I actually have lots of things that I can put $4700 in that yield $20K.   We get $4 for petunias we grow from seed.  And we do tens of of thousands of them.  I’ve developed a nursery that gives me much better return than almost anything I can get in crypto currency.   “You should diversify, throw a little in” I understand the thought but if I have a sheet of paper of things I can do that will yield great profit.  I just don’t feel the draw to crypto.  I don’t feel any excitement when I see it.  Of course I still check it every day.  I love making money.  I just feel no personal desire to be a part.  I love domains.  I can’t wait every day to see what I can buy. I look forward to waking up and seeing offers for my domains.   I’m going to build on that and let you all do what draws you.  Mine is still domains and flowers. Here are today’s names. Click for most recent price and hopefully you’ll find some you like.  
Quote of the Day:  “The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common sense”  -Thomas EdisonDomains of the Day:  Easies logo ever.  NameSoup spelled in the alphabet soup
Namejet , DropCatch, and Sedo Names at Auction  Can’t vape if you don’t have supplies.  Vape Nation 60 bidders    Only the bigger keywords have value and this one already has a few bids   This one has the benefit of being a AND a good keyword   A few bidders on this one as well.     No biddes on this one.  Only $15 .  11 million Google results when you type in Big Lodge    I didn’t get the connection at first but is a dispensary name   Well, can’t argue against the keyword   1993 birthday. Good acronym letters.  Don’t buy just one.  Get D Set   Online adoption.  No bidders   Upgrade name for all the striping companies that share the name
☊.com    Closes today.   Officially is an ascending node but looks like Headphones to most people.   And its a dot com     Fit may not make you live longer but the ride will be smoother   $150 will get you this if nobody else bids today. Met reserve
 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids
🇩🇪.ws      German Flag emoji.  Sedo should buy this (only German domain company I know)  Only one bid   Just your typical that has some bids, that attract other bids, that get it higher than I generally want to pay. But sometimes I get a good price, so I watch them all   Getting some good bids  “Gifts that you’ve always wished for”  I invest in these.  I have owned Celgene for a long time I think this goes for $13,500. Not there yet Chinese all the way with the x in the Middle While it still may end up in China the MD has this good for Maryland and doctors Hasn’t met reserve but I wouldn’t sell it at this price either   Used to be a software company in Chicago.  Looks like they aren’t anymore   We have one here.  Always busy.  Lots of fancy cars parked out front   “Say High to your friends”  Free slogan with purchase  Nobody paints their vehicles anymore.  It’s all wraps   Not sure I like it but its 22 years old and makes me giggle when I think of the photo shoots from the site. And yes it has bids  Never had a great experience with a company that claims VIP service but still a popular naming convention   $10 CPC will keep this one with value   This kind of name fits in my “bought for cheap and put a BIN and wait” category    Solar cryptocoin.  Why not?
Domains That I Like With One or No Bids Many people believe virtual is the future of gaming and tech. And you know there will plenty of gadgets to play with Industry site to crowd police Bitcoin has opened a whole other world of day traders. And given this more value Best and top lawyers are what people type into Google You know exactly what is going to be on this site. Not 79, not 81 Lots of products and entities already named this A with one bid Because you know that there will be a woman that wants to be known as this Decent hosting or server name 16 years old Lots of rugby played in New Zealand Somebody has to be the solar experts The word rape really should be blacklisted from Godaddy’s list. Nothing good comes from this name What little babies call Alexa. Or mothers with babies I think this actually works with the dot US. Price certainly works Sounds like an IPA soooooo Sounds like something parents would book for their kid’s Birthday party
Other Domains With Bids
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 or Josh . (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. Keep that in mind and only buy names that YOU think are good
