Big Name Hunting – City Domain Names

1 Comment

Some investors apply the term GEO domains to anything with a city name in it. For me pure Geodomains are the names of states, cities and counties and places.

Here is some work we have done recently on the Pure US City Domain Names you can buy right now.

We limit this to buy it now names, make offer doesn’t really help because a buyer has no idea if the price is $1000 or $1 Million.

Info from sources deemed reliable. Subject to change and reporting errors.

 

Happy Hunting

Domain Name Investing Tips

As we begin a new year, I’d ask you what are you trying to with your portfolio? What are you intentionally trying to accomplish?  If your not operating with some plan, I feel you may have an uphill climb in being successful in domain names.

Before I address diversification versus focus or theme investing; lets take a look at what happens if you don’t have a plan.  My summation after being around the industry for 20 years, is that without a plan, you can end up buying higher than you should, selling low and at the … Read the rest

Your Probably a Better Domainer than you think. Potency in Your Portfolio.

Your probably a better Domainer than you think. Potency in Your Portfolio.

When you search your portfolio do you find personal projects, “protective registrations” of some of your favorites in other TLD’s, and names you tell yourself you can always develop.   Lastly, do you see a name and its future “if” you could build it out, and end up buying a domain name with only one buyer… you.  But your a domain name investor, your told you can sell 1-2% of your portfolio. So you rationalize buying a project, and calling it a sell-able name.

When you lump these extra … Read the rest

End of the Year Deals

Some After Christmas and End of the Year Domain Deals.

Your regular job office may be closed. Family out shopping. Time to buy some names.

Now my first recommendation is still invest 2 hours in understanding what you own, and what you want to own in 2020. Also bring all your names together in a spreadsheet. Makes it easier to upload to aftermarkets, search for names and know whether your sales have tilted your portfolio downwards in quality.

But everyone likes to buy.

I use in how many extensions a left of the dot string is taken to separate platinum from awesome from great from good domain names.  Its not a guarantee but helps me see what domain investors are taking in every possible extension.

Here are 100 of the top words or strings. I’ve culled this list from all domains with any TLD appended available in a pending delete name, a name listed at Uniregistry or Godaddy Auctions.  I’ll refine it again by year end to include other lists.

So far I’ve found almost 19,000 words or strings taken in over 100 … Read the rest

Sell More? Domain Related Year-End and Tax Issues

Leave a Comment0

Year-end can be a great time to sell domain names. Revisit your clients in December with these thoughts in mind.

Year-end time does bring some “look back” thoughts. Picture your potential client thinking “what did I intend to do this year?”.  Most of us procrastinate and don’t meet our own goals. Engage them to let them make a big move at the end of the year. Catch them trying to knock off as many to-dos as possible, including acquiring a better domain name.

December can be a slower work time, so your CEO and Decision Maker clients may have some … Read the rest

Momentum Domain Name Investing Versus Collecting

2 Comments

I’ve wrote previously about growth versus value domain name investors.  This might also be said momentum investors versus collectors. I’ll look at some principles I’ve learned, mostly by making mistakes.  Momentum investing first.

Growth and Momentum domain name investors are looking for whats moving now. You can buy whats working now and wait and get retail offers, or operate in whats working now in the wholesale space.

In the wholesale space your trading among other domain name investors. The more trading being done paints a picture of liquidity, which draws more investors. The thought is you can own the name … Read the rest

LLL.com Domain Names on Auction

I received an email last week about 10 LLL.com domain names for auction at 4.cn. Supposed to end on December 10th.

Maybe I’ve got the time zone wrong, but only 5 are now still active.  All non “Chip” names under $10k. The sole chip is at $11,385.  I’m not familiar with the terms at 4.cn so do your own research on escrow, buyers premium and bidding and other info.

Is the market for LLL.com now under $10k?  This may show the effect of the “CHIP” premium winding down. I think the old school and and … Read the rest
