Today: About Auction Strategy / List of all 5 letter combinations / Joint Domain Buying / and More…

Here are the new discussions that caught my eye in the domain community today:

Buying LLLL.com brandable – Total Budget: $5,000.00 – If you have any four-letter .com’s in your portfolio and needing some quick reinvestment investment capital, this might be an opportunity to liquidate.

The .nu showcase – If you have some cool .nu ccTLD’s you invested into and want to show them off, this might be an opportunity to do so. Take a look at what .nu domains other investors own and share your best ones.

Should keyword “DataCenter” be as valuable as “Real Estate” or close? – What are your thoughts on this? Are you investing in either niche? Do you think that data center should be just as valuable as real estate? Take a look at what others think.

Joint Domain Buying – Have you ever worked with other domain investors in a joint venture to pull your funds together in order to invest into a more premium domains you couldn’t afford otherwise?

List of all 5 letter combinations – Are you a five-letter domain name investors? How many different five-letter combinations or sequences are there? Take a peak at what some domain investors look at when investing in five-letter combinations and share all the sequences you know about.

About Auction Strategy – Do you have a fool-proof strategy when it comes to domain name auctions? Check out what strategies other domain investors use, compare notes, and share your own.

BuyPay.com sold for $8,900 – That’s not a bad domain name sales report for a six-letter, two-word, .com domain name for a high-four-figures. Do you think it should have sold for more or less than what it sold for?

The best Pinyin domains

Hosting for 1 buck!

What is the Chinese name of the USA? What is common between Beijing and Shenzhen? What does Peking University and Tsinghua University share? Why is Alibaba also called Ali? Answers to these questions will reveal a secret about Chinese preference for domains.

The USA is called Mei Guo (美国) in Chinese. Similarly, UK is Ying Guo (英国) and France Fa Guo (法国). As you can see, each of the names uses two Pinyin words (or simply as “2-pin” in this article). Many countries in the world have 2-pin names in Chinese.

Beijing and Shenzhen are Chinese cities and they both have Pinyin names: Bei Jing (北京) and Shen Zhen (深圳). In fact, most Chinese cities adopt 2-pin names. Evidence? Among the top 100 Chinese cities published in 2018, 96% of them follow this rule.

Peking University (北京大学) and Tsinghua University (清华大学) are top schools in China, and they are commonly called Bei Da (北大) and Qing Hua (清华) respectively. This shows Chinese people don’t like long names; they often shorten them to 2-pin names. Many top Chinese universities follow this rule.

This cultural element can also be seen in the commercial world. Alibaba’s name is 4-pin A Li Ba Ba (阿里巴巴) but consumers just shorten it to A Li (阿里). This preference is reflected in many of Alibaba sub brands, such as Ali Mama (AliMama.com), Ali Cloud (AliCloud.com), Ali Sports (AliSports.com), and Ali Express (AliExpress.com).

If you are a keen observer of China, you’ll see 2-pin names everywhere and the domain world is no exception. Among the 37 Pinyin-based brands in the 2018 Top 100 Chinese Internet Companies Report, 78% of them own 2-pin domains. So, what is the implication to domain investors? 2-pin is king in Pinyin domains. If you want to sell Pinyin domains to China, remember this rule.

Intel promotes .GG domain in new ad during top eSports tournament

Liquid Web WW

As many of you know, I’m not a big traditional sports fan, try to talk to me about Football and expect a blank stare, but eSports, now that’s my jam. This morning I was watching one of my favorite teams (go Team Liquid!) play in a tournament that sold out the Barclay Center in NYC called ESL One.

While I was waiting for the tournament to start I saw an ad from Intel about their new processors specifically targeting gamers…and I was pretty surprised to see that rather than directing viewers to Intel.com, they were telling them to shop at Intel.gg. What makes it even more weird is that this just forwards to the Microcenter Store and this specific gaming laptop 🤷‍♂️

I’ll be honest – that’s a pretty badass gaming laptop so I’m actually glad I followed the link. Of course, I was pretty surprised that the link didn’t send me to Intel’s website. So of course I had to check, where does Intel.gg go to?

As you can see from the screenshot above, Intel.gg actually forwards to a landing page on Intel.com specifically focused on gaming. Given how many eSports-related company brand on a .GG I’m not too surprised to see Intel using .GG to market to this audience.

You can’t register .GG at every registrar, 101Domain is usually my go-to for ccTLDs like this but don’t expect me to be investing in a bunch of .GG domains anytime soon. As an investor I’m sticking with .COM but as a gamer, and really more of an eSports spectator than anything else I can tell you .GG seems to be getting some legs.

Like it or not, the ad worked because now I can’t get that darn laptop out of my mind, damn you Intel for tempting me with a .GG domain!

AUCTION RECAP OF SEPTEMBER 27, 2019

Take Control of Your Domain Names

A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on September 27, 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.

IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Saturday, September 28th

I’ve never been a fan of the auction strategy that has you tag along with names that already have bids, and these three names are one small example of why:

CrapsCasinos.net
BlackjackCasinos.net
RouletteCasinos.net

One is over $2k the others are close. Plural .net’s on specific casino games. No traffic, no brandability complete crap as far as a name that will ever sell. If is does sell for some reason, at a price that makes the $2K “wholesale” profitable, the buying company will go out of business within a month, because they’re obviously doing other stupid shit.

I would rather blindfold myself, bang my head into the keyboard to create a letter number combination that I would then register. I would rather fling alphabet soup on the wall, finding interesting letter combinations to register as the letters slide to the floor.

Remember to think ” Will a business buy this name, could it be a brand, does it have value to a buyer” or even “does it make a cool email” asking yourself any one of these questions, or something similar, will keep you from buying expensive junk.
