Mainstream Bloggers Reinforce the Benefits of Controlling Their Own Domain Name
I was recently catching up on some reading over at AVC.com, which is the blog of popular venture capitalist Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures. He mentioned that Elizabeth Spiers, an entrepreneur and journalist (and founding editor of Gawker), had resumed writing at her personal blog after a few years of spotty (at best) blogging....

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Wednesday 9/17
Yesterday during negotiations I was presented an offer from a potential buyer of one of my domains.  $250 plus 5% ownership of new company formed and 25% of revenues for the first 5 years.  I have to admit it could be a big offer but I also know that everyone has big plans for their domain.  And those big plans often fail to material...

Flippa Recap: Babes.net and Yabai.com for 5 figures, ClickThis.com, Flipped.net, ReggaeSongs.com
Some nice sales again at Flippa last week. Two 5-figure sales, and over ten 4-figure sales by my count. One notable sale was FreeInstrumentals.com. As a domain listing two weeks ago, it got a high bid of $1,000. As a website listing last week, it sold at the buy-it-now price of $4,000. All appears totally legit…..the website w...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Monday 9/15
Looking over my website affiliate results for the weekend on Saturday I typed in my name and password and the daily totals were $2600. I usually make $100 or so a day this time of year so as you can imagine I was a little giddy.  I had to know where in the world I had made the money.  The sale total posts about a half hour before the...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Saturday 9/13
I’ve stated over the last few years that I’ve never had a computer before that isn’t Apple.  Since 1976 that’s all I’ve ever had.  Even in the 80s.  I have 25 or so in the business but it’s getting time to upgrade my personal computer and I’ve purchased a Mac Pro.  It’s the one that loo...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Friday 9/12
I’ve been auctioning off some of my domains over the past few months and always keep a  chart up on my screen at work of what names and where they are being auctioned on one my desktops.  I’ll get asked every once in a while what the names are and if there is any money in domain investing.   I summarized it like this. If ...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Thursday 9/11
I’ve been a little hard on Sedo the last few years and I’m going to continue the trend today.  It really is tough love. They are (or maybe were) one of the premier domain auction houses in the world.  But every month that goes by they are losing market share.  And their recent numeric auction is a perfect example.  They g...

Does Your Psychology Shift When A Privacy Protection Firm Reaches Out To Buy Your Domain?
I admit I don’t have the most valuable portfolio on the planet, so I don’t frequently get contacted by the big privacy protection firms like Mark Monitor, CSC, and NetNames on behalf of their confidential (and sometimes big $$) buyers. However, I was recently contacted by one of these types of firms on one of my better d...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Wednesday 9/10
I was like everyone else and was watching the Apple product show closely. I am an early adopter, I’m not scared to say so.  But I’ve been that way since 1986 and have a lot of money because of it.  I buy stock in things I believe in.  When I stand in long lines at Chipotle every day.  I don’t bitch and complain, I b...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Tuesday 9/9
Good news.  Sold another name I hand registered a year ago for $800.  Bad news, my 2 year old Beta fish Steve is not doing well.  He is starting to float when he stops swimming.  Not looking good.   I know, I know, I can buy 200 more with the sale but none of them will be Steve. Here are today’s names InvestorHomes.com  With th...

Flippa Recap: VisitRome.com, OrlandoTravel.com, DroppedNames.com, ScubaTank,.com, PriveSchools.or...
Some domains that sold VisitRome.com – $16,000 – I’m guessing the seller (Eric Borgos) and buyer had a few discussions…..I received a notification that the seller added a BIN, and then less than an hour later, the domain was picked up at that price. Bidding was at $2,100 at the time. In a previous listing, th...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Monday 9/8
I was perusing some old articles that took the bait on the holiday.com press release and reported on holiday.com coming up for sale.  Most of the headlines talked about it crossing the 25 million dollar sale price.  My favorite line from the sellers of holiday.com “It’s in these companies’ best interests to acquire this domain name b...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Sunday 9/7
It’s Sunday and the opening weekend of the NFL.  My favorite weekend of the year.  The weather turned cooler and actually feels like fall out there. That means easier runs and tons of fall plant sales. Two of my other favorite things.  Typical short Sunday list but you never know until you check.  Here is today’s list. My...

Domain Flips (UOI.com, Kittel.com, DNServer.com) and Flops (ClearwaterHotels.com)
Below is another look at a few recent domain flips and flops, with recent data courtesy of DN Journal and historical data from NameBio. Flips DNServer.com – Sold recently for $2,600 at Sedo, vs $331 earlier this year at NameJet. I see DNServer.com, but the buyers are using it to redirect to their site with one less “R...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Saturday 9/6
I was talking to Brandon Abbey, the guy that runs the show over at Escrow, and we were talking about putting Buy It Now buttons for Escrow.com on landing pages.  It was easy to set up so I emailed and told that I thought the buttons were great and a great business move (yes I don’t just email to bitch, I do email when I think s...

DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Friday 9/5
Really not much to talk about today. Boring day overall.  From a domain standpoint there really hasn’t been much domain news of interest.  Dot HipHop getting 114 registrations (or whatever the real number is) pretty much sums up the news day.  Been busier at work so I have sold my options and almost took a bath in my 3D printin...
