Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday August 3rd


We discuss it more in length on Sherpa on Monday but we have a pretty good show on generic vs brand.   Ammar Kubba, Frank Schilling, and myself on the panel this coming week and the portfolio brings out the topic of technology and how to capitalize on it using domains..   We discuss brands and the fact that most companies are not naming their company the generic product name, rather coming up with a name that represents their products.  Unless its a major category and a brand unto itself like or, they are going with a name like or Zappos.   Its the reason why one word dot coms are skyrocketing in cost.  And why two word generics are moving towards zero if they don’t make a good brand.   On two word dot come the singular is generally the brand and the plural is the product.  For instance. is a great brand.  But is about the tree.  Of course there are exceptions.  But its a good way to think when putting value on names.  Here are today’s names.

Domain of the Day:    Great twitter name.  Really any social media

Namejet Names at Auction    1996 domain.  One of the most important resources on earth.  OK the most important  As seen on DomainSherpa.   We all liked it but agreed its a bit generic and that a bike company is not going to use it to name their company.  More as a marketing name   I like solar names. I think a lot of companies are created around it in the near future   Someone else agrees as they’ve put a lot of solar names up for sale on Namejet today.  Some good ones in there    You know they should be pretty flexible   Here you go.  Alan one of the original owners is dumping his .ws names.  If you want to buy low here is your chance   See your family history or plant root stimulator  I have to admit, as little confidence as I have in .ws this one is appealing  If you want to do a whole site selling staplers this would do it   I took a bath with my 888, but still like them


 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Love this one.  The eternal wave is a surfers dream.  1997 domain   Four figure bids already.  A lot of money in fashion.  Even Jessica Simpson is selling hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cloth   Terra and esoteric together make a pretty brand   Sugar has been a big part of brands and obesity for decades   Nice brand .  Expresso comes to mind but more than coffee     I would like to see an S but at this price still good for a retirement center or Chinese restaurant   Most of results come up for the energy company name of the same name     Internet and shipping.  The future  Nice    Brands that rhyme are more memorable.  A few bidders agree  A bit Tarzanish but people will get it   I guess it could be iTass but I like my capitalization better.  Several bidders still holding on to value


Domains That I Like With One or No Bids You’ve been waiting. Here it is. 49 Zs. Don’t be afraid of the cost 1998 and no bidders. Keyword .cc don’t get very good prices Weather or Miami fan I think this is pretty funny Hell of a buy at this price Everyone loves them in the summer. Could be a brand too I can hear the southern accent in the commercial Who can’t use a little extra luck? Not sure how footwear can be healthy but that’s not important. As long as they think its healthy I guess Even if you aren’t the original don’t love it but it’s getting some bids and I love the word flow The 55 will draw some bids
