Solid list today, no homeruns but a lot of singles and maybe two or three doubles. Right now in today’s market it is easier (I think) to sell three domains for $5k each then to sell one domain at $15k. Here’s the list…

My Top 5 Picks – another day, another up for auction. – few different uses for this guy, anyone famous named Joe Z? – I would have like 247 at the end but this is still a great domain to build a customer service support business on. – all states and top 50 cities taken for – you know how bad rotten eggs smell, imagine when they have a recall and have to dispose of them somewhere. Oh the humanity.

My 5 Picks with Less Than 10 Bidders – one of Rupert Murdoch’s companies is called News America. – I hate pop music and pop stars so I refuse to bid on this one. – a nice evenly balance domain, something that Monk would appreciate. – nice domain niche related name. – there’s a lot of land to build on in Texas.

My Darkhorse Pick (a domain I think you can snatch cheap and sell for over $1,000) – start something new, kinda like a fundraiser but the money just goes to you. That would be nice.

  • Do you think most owners of a well built .net website would want to purchase the .com extension, in order to keep another company from acquiring it?

    • Yes, but in some cases (if there is a trademark involved) competitors can’t buy it and use it for a similar purpose. If it is a generic domain name they would most certainly want to acquire it. One example that comes to mind is They started out small on the .net and got to become very large and purchased the .com and in the past couple of years and redirect it to the .net site. I don’t think they were afraid of a competitor buying it (because of trademark issues) but they knew they were losing a lot of traffic to a parked landing page.
