Why I Have and Will Continue to Avoid the Asian Domain Grab There’s people making a killing on the Asian domain grab of short domains. If you had the foresight to get in before or at the start of it all congrats because you’ve done well for yourself. I did not and I’ve chosen to sit on the sidelines for this instead of trying to jump in… Read More

Something Fishy with GoDaddy Auctions I went to the GoDaddy auctions homepage and was browsing the top auctions and I noticed something that stuck out. There’s a handful of LLL.co auctions and the price has hit around $2-3k for them which struck me as a little unusual. #1: It was unusual because I’ve watched LLL.co auctions on GoDaddy for the… Read Mo...

What is Snapnames Doing? The past few days I noticed at Snapnames that after I put in my filters and I go to sort the domains by bid count that there is no bid count… for any domain. Thinking there was some sort of bug in the system I reached out to their customer support and you can color… Read More
The Domain Toby.com, Formerly Owned by Toby Clements, is on Namejet Even though Namejet is still down today I was using Freshdrop and came across a domain that has ties to the domain industry, Toby.com. I remember when (former?) domain broker Toby Clements announced he purchased this domain. Since then there’s been quite a chapter of events and I don’t know the full story so I’ll...
How Annoying “Offers” Turned into an Extra $2k Year Here’s a little actual anecdote that anyone who parks domains may find interesting to help you earn extra money… I bought a domain at GoDaddy auctions about 2 months ago (for something nominal like $50) and I parked it with DNS. The domain was actually getting decent traffic (15 visits a day), making a few… Read Mo...
News, Notes, Thoughts, & Tidbits I have become much less active in bidding within the popular domains that are being auctioned. Prices have gone up, up, up and I’m really struggling to understand how the buyers are going to be flipping these domains for a decent profit. I have a handful of bidder alias names on Namejet in my head… Read More
Namejet’s Help Desk Not Being Very Helpful We all add a backorder (or a few) at a point in time that later down the road we decide we no longer want. I have 30,531 domains on backorder at Namejet so it’s not really reasonable for me to go through them all and remove the ones I don’t want, so what I do… Read More

GoDaddy’s $28M Marchex Purchase Has a Minimum $110M Offer Price The minimum offer price on the domains that Godaddy purchased from Marchex has come out and 99.99% of the domains are priced with minimum offers and the sum of those is a little over $110,000,000. Some of the names have a minimum offer that is well below what the domain would sell for, so there’s… Read More

Here’s some of the top numeric auctions, middle of the road, and ones at the bottom (all these domains will sell, nothing here that is&...
10 Random Domain Thoughts Here’s 10 random domain thoughts I’ve had over the past week: 1. The prices on Namejet have been rising. Domains that would have sold for $2k a year ago seem to be selling for double that or more today. Two word .com prices have really skyrocketed as well. There’s a couple guys really driving up… Read More

Why I Am Done Wasting Time with Sedo’s GreatDomains Auction I decided to submit two domains to the Great Domains auction. I’m no longer a fan of these auctions but what the hell, if you put a reserve on them then where’s the harm and its been a while since I submitted any domains to one. I submitted a N-N.com domain (number dash number domain… Read More
