Even if I don’t intend to actively bid on an auction sometimes I’ll place the initial $69 bid on Namejet so that when the auction closes I can see the closing price in the auction history page within my account. I like to see what different types of domains are selling for as it helps me base future decisions on actual information. Here’s a few interesting ones that closed. Q-S.com $1855, Wholesale.info $3,533, ValenciaHotels.com $4,901, Chilli.com $10,200 (yes, that is not the correct spelling), FlatTire.com $3,996, 1915.com $4,316, Touchy.com $4,100, Edmonton.org $3,500. Here’s the list…

My Top 5 Picks

0-1.com – I have not seen a N-N.com sell before so it’ll be interesting to see what this goes for. Especially with the zero and one which I think will bring the value up significantly.

Scold.com – no clue what to do with this guy, but it is a single word dot com so there’s value there.

Mmusic.com – good typo on a generic domain that I’m sure gets type in traffic.

DomainShield.com – if you want to start your own whois service here is your chance to get a good domain to do it with.

PayOffStudentLoans.com – lots of affiliate offers for this niche and they all pay well.

My 5 Picks with Less Than 10 Bidders

Shoreline.org – pretty nice domain name that has a bunch of end users.

Face.cc – first time a .cc domain has ever appeared on my list. Not sure if people invest in them nowadays or not but if so the keyword is pretty good.

Showcases.org – if you sell showcases then you can use this domain to do it on.

Spalicious.com – a spa that serves you tasty treats as you get massages.

BookAvenue.com – good name for an online bookstore.

My Darkhorse Pick (a domain I think you can snatch cheap and sell for over $1,000)

SocialUs.com – the term social is still going strong. Good name for a social site where people can share profiles (i.e. it is a profile for a group of friends).
