I don’t typically watch TV, live or streaming, but every once in awhile I’ll binge watch a show. I haven’t watched anything really good in months, probably for a lack of looking. Yesterday I discovered “Dark” a netflix, German original, dubbed in English. It’s probably one of the best extended plot shows I’ve seen in a long time.
It’s one of those shows with crazy concepts that you might need a map or notes to follow along. That’s the best kind of show, though I don’t think they make as many as they used to, too many people can’t follow along. Part of the reason is lack of cognitive ability, but I think the main reason is that people can’t pay attention for 20 minutes let alone 20 hours, without playing with their phones. Every time I picked up my phone I had to go back and play that section of video over.
There’s definitely a difference in quality between a story that demands your full attention and one that you don’t even need to actively watch to understand what’s going on.
Sometimes you might want something mindless, but if you don’t check out “Dark”.

The post IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Monday, September 30th appeared first on DSAD.
Today: Ryan Kulp scolds Rick Schwartz / Statistics2013.org sold for $2,750 / Wow, a $100K+ difference in free online appraisal? What’s the deal? / and More…
Here are the new discussions that caught my eye in the domain community today:
Buying 3 or 4 letter .io, .co, or .org – Budget: Up to $250.00 – Be sure to check your portfolio for any three or four-letter .io, .co, .or, or .org domain names. This buyer is ready for a quick and smooth transaction if you need the cash.
BuddyTv.com sells for over $30,000 – Wow! That’s a nice five-figure domain name sale for a seven-letter, two-word, .com domain name. Should it have sold for more or less than $30,000.00?
Buying DA 20+ Domain Names – Budget: Up to $50.00 – If you have any domain names with a minimum DA (Domain authority) of 20+ in your portfolio and looking to liquidate for some fast cash to spend this weekend, this might be an opportunity.
Statistics2013.org sold for $2,750 – That’s not a bad ten-letter + four-number, fourteen-character, .org domain name sales report for four-figures. Do you think it should have sold for more or less than what it sold for?
Ryan Kulp scolds Rick Schwartz – If you’ve followed either Ryan Kulp or Rick Schwartz in the domain industry, this might be an interesting confrontation for you. Apparently, not everyone agrees with one another, which I suppose, isn’t a big surprise.
Wow, a $100K+ difference in free online appraisal? What’s the deal? – How often have you seen automated appraisal tools thousands of dollars apart from one another? Which one is right or wrong? How do you figure out if an appraisal tool is worth using or even accurate?
19 years domaining and victims of fraud – Now what? – Have you ever had anything like this happen to you in all the years of domain investing you have done? It seems like a first time for this 19 year veteran. What advice do you have to offer them?
Today’s Marketplace/Auction Picks:
This weekend I’ve been watching quite a bit of eSports since Twitchcon is going on and today San Francisco Shock competed (and won!) in the Overwatch Finals. One thing that’s been in my face for the last two days when I’m watching any eSports is, you guessed it, .GG domain names.
Now I know I have a wide range of people who read my blog. My guess is, most of the domain investors who read my blog probably aren’t watching a lot of eSports…so they likely don’t hear about .GG unless me or another domain blogger is talking about it.
That being said, the eSports industry is huge, and it’s growing fast, and yeah – safe to say they have no idea that there are blogs about domain names and domain investing…my guess is, the two worlds don’t really know about each other. Maybe I’m a weirdo but I love eSports since I’ve been a lifelong gamer and never a huge fan of traditional sports.
Given that I’ve seen .GG a zillion different times this weekend I thought I’d share some examples with all of you. First up – in the Overwatch League Grand Finals today, which was a huge event filling up an entire stadium in Philadelphia and came with a prize of $1.1M, had two teams, San Francisco Shock (the team I root for) and The Vancouver Titans, the Titans have their home online at VancouverTitans.gg.
Next up is NRG, one of the biggest names in eSports and the company that actually owns the San Francisco Shock eSports team. NRG is owned by the same people who own the Sacramento Kings and have some interesting celebrity investors like Shaq, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Tiesto and more. It’s safe to say NRG is the leader in the eSports world now since their teams have the best record.
And yes, you guessed it, NRG has their website on NRG.gg. Below is a photo from earlier today when NRG’s top team, the San Francisco Shock won the Overwatch League Finals:
The top player on the San Francisco Shock is a guy named Jay Won who goes by the Sinatraa in-game. When you look at Jay’s Twitter profile, he shares his email address, which is sinatraa(at)evolved.gg.
The top announcers at eSports events can bring in over $1M a year, and one of the most well-known announcers is Harry “LEGDAY” Pollitt, looking at his Twitter profile you’ll see a link to his Discord account, and yup – he’s using Discord.gg as you can see below:
So yes, it’s safe to say that if you watch eSports, you’re going to see a lot of .GG domains. Now that being said, I don’t want to give people the wrong impression, I still think that .COM is used more than .GG overall, period. While Harry’s using Discord.gg above, Discord has their brand on DiscordApp.com, and San Francisco Shock, my home team, you can find them on Shock2020.com.
I think plenty of companies will continue to brand on .COM – it’s not going anywhere and yes, everyone in the eSports world knows and loves .COM. That being said, they also know and love .GG, and that’s okay, it’s not a fad, it’s a domain extension that the eSports and gaming community has gravitated towards and I don’t see that slowing down or going away anytime soon.
Now like I said above, I know I have a wide range of people who read my blog. For the domain investors in the crowd, I probably wouldn’t buy .GG domains, I’d stick to .COM. For all the entrepreneurs out there starting companies in the eSports and gaming space, you already know that your audience knows and loves both .COM and .GG, so you’ve got some choices!
A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on September 28, 2019.
If there is an asterisk (*) next to a price, it means that the name was at auction from a private seller (rather than an expiring name) and may have had a reserve. I’m only showing where the price was when the domain auction ended, but the name may not have sold if a reserve was in place.

Friday, Adiel Akplogan joined the elite ranks of notable individuals who have been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame for their significant contributions to the advancement of the global Internet. The Internet Hall of Fame inducted Akplogan, the Vice President of Technical Engagement at ICANN org, for his outstanding contribution to the Internet’s growth, reach, and security in Africa. ICANN President and CEO Göran Marby said, “Adiel is the embodiment of ICANN‘s mission to work in the public interest. I know everyone at ICANN wishes Adiel congratulations on this significant achievement.”
Akplogan has been with ICANN‘s Office of the Chief Technology Officer since 2015, where he develops and coordinates ICANN org’s technical engagement. David Conrad, ICANN‘s Chief Technology Officer, said, “Adiel is key to our outreach and engagement efforts with the Internet’s technical community. This recognition is well-deserved and is a testament to his dedication and contributions to the ICANN community.”
Recognized as an Internet pioneer in Africa, Akplogan contributed to technical capacity-building and the deployment of some of the first private Internet Service Providers in Africa. He helped found and was the first CEO of the African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC). Akplogan said, “We dreamed and worked relentlessly to build a regional registry that would become a catalyst for the African Internet ecosystem, tackling our challenges one at a time with diligence, discipline, and courage to build consensus.”
During his 25-year career, he has also served on the Boards and Advisory Committees of many multistakeholder Internet governance bodies. He has also contributed to building the technical coordination bodies in Africa such as the African Network Operators Group (AfNOG), the Africa Top Level Domains Organization (AFTLD), and the Africa Internet Summit. Akplogan, a native of Togo now living in Montréal, Canada, holds an engineering degree from the Université d’Abomey-Calavi and a master’s degree in E-Business and New Technology Management from the Paris Graduate School of Management.
More details on the 2019 Internet Hall of Fame inductees, including their biographies and photos, can be found at www.internethalloffame.org. You can follow the Internet Hall of Fame on Facebook and on Twitter at @Internet_HOF (#ihof2019).
ICANN‘s mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.

No, we haven’t hired another writer. This is Travis, and Andrea is my wife. She is also quite good at crawling domain lists. I’ve been pretty busy lately trying to get a site launched, and I asked her if she would put the GoDaddy list together for me. She did, and all of the GoDaddy names below were chosen by her (the dumb comments are mine). I think she did a great job.
Actually, she has started to help me out a lot on the domaining side of things. We are buying more names, because she spends an hour or so each morning crawling the pending delete list. She will typically put a list of around 70 potential candidates together that I’ll spend 3 minutes narrowing down to less than 10. I think we also pick up better names when we both decide that we like them. Andrea also submits names to marketplaces, changes name servers, processes renewals and transfers, etc… It’s been a huge help.
Enjoy the list!
