Dae.com closes at $126,000

DAE.com

After extended bidding DAE.com closed at $126,000 on GoDaddy auctions.

The domain is registered at GoDaddy, so it cannot be renewed or transferred out. A 24 year old domain name that was owned by Dae Advertising out of San Francisco for many years.

Now we will see if it gets paid at the closing price or if there are any price adjustments.

Another expired gem at GoDaddy with no time to renew

DAE.com

Four days ago we had a rare expired 4N.com at GoDaddy, 4600.com closed at $68,000. Tomorrow the expired domain auction for DAE.com closes.

The domain is registered at GoDaddy, so it cannot be renewed or transferred out. A 24 year old 3L.com is usually not left to expire at GoDaddy. The domain was owned by Dae Advertising out of  San Francisco for many years.

Currently at $32,500

The post Another expired gem at GoDaddy with no time to renew appeared first on TLD Investors.

As we enter a new decade it’s time for GoDaddy to fix their aftermarket platform

GoDaddy Auctions

There was a nice back and forth on Twitter Friday night concerning GoDaddy Auctions.

When you go to GoDaddy to use the appraisal tool, if you scroll down you see this:

How does $2,344.00 sound?

That was the average sale price in 2017 for a domain at GoDaddy auctions.

Ready for your piece of the action? Sign up for GoDaddy Auctions. You get access to our massive domains aftermarket, where you can buy and sell domains as often as you like.

Plus, you get extras like our multi-bidding tool and access to our Daily Gems domain deals. With 78 million domains under management, we know what success looks like for domain investors. Get started at GoDaddy Auctions today.

Elliot Silver tweeted this out and pondered how $2,344 could be right?

That makes perfect sense with all the auctions that close from $5 to $12 how could that number be right?

Paul Nicks replied:

Paul explained further:

After that Konstantinos from OnlineDomain.com weighed in:

Konstantinos went on to discuss the issue that I think is very important,

Confusion at GoDaddy Auctions

I have had this happen before as well. Dear Raymond I see that example.com closed with no bids, I would be willing to offer you $100 to transfer me the name.

The person believes that an auction took place, no bids were made (implying no interest in the name, so it has minimal value) and then makes a lowball offer.

For those that don’t know what’s being talked about, a name that you are not auctioning appears to be in auction.

Here is a name of mine, never been auctioned just listed for sale using premium listings.

PitchPulse.com

Someone looking at GoDaddy auctions will see Ends at 1/11/2020 6:00 AM (EST) 56d left. So if there is no sale, they will think the auction closed unsold.

As we move into a new decade it’s time for GoDaddy, a public company that can afford to spend $500 million to buy back shares, to spend some money and update their sales platform.

It’s time to focus on simplicity and a better user experience. Something that has never been at auction should never seem like it’s at auction.

A better way to do a domains wanted thread

Domains wanted threads

Earlier this year Vito from mediabranding.com did a domains wanted thread where he would not accept private messages, he wanted people to post their name in the thread.

This was being done to bring things out into the light. To weed out those who break the rules in the dark. Examples include sending non coms when the thread starter asked only for .coms, asking $10,000 when max budget is $1,000, etc…

One of the things Vito did worry about was getting names picked off by someone else before he could reply to them.

Marek from Brands.International took the concept and improved upon it, running a very efficient thread with rules that provided him the opportunity to have some time to make a decision.

Of course someone could say I don’t care about a violation, but again that whole thing of everything being out in the public for everyone to see, tends to keep people in line. When everyone can see what you did you cannot post, “you don’t know the whole story or see all the pm’s.”

Here was the initial post:

Criteria:

1. only .WORLD, .LIFE, .LIVE, .CHAT, .WORK, .WORKS, .SPACE, .PLACE, .COOL, .FUND, .SOCIAL, .CLOUD and .NETWORKNO OTHER EXTENSIONS!

2. STANDARD renewal attached (or it can be small premium renewal, but less then $50).

3. Only 1 worders (what is 1 worder : OPEN.WORLD. This is NOT 1 worder: MYOPEN.WORLD)

4. 1 name per 1 member per 1 day, so please select those with high quality. If you have more good names, post it on separate day. I will report you if you break this rule.

5. You must post name directly in the thread. Do not send me DMs, all DMs not originated by me will be ignored. By posting name in this thread you agree to give me (this only for duration of 24 hours since you post it) exclusive right to choose your name and to get it (if we do not agree on some lesser price via DMs) for price $250/name (by me publicly posting the domain name selected and “I take it” words with this domain ), while you bindingly confirm you will NOT sell this name to someone else during this 24 hour period.

I might publicly post information prior end of this period that the name is released from this exlusive right, in which case you can freely sell it to someone else again.

If I do not post anything, you must wait for 24 hours to be able to sell it to someone else.

6. By posting a name in thread you agree I can positively or negatively comment on it, if I like to do so..

It generated over 5,000 views and 185 posts. A few names purchased.

I think what Marek did might become a trend, many members such as Brad Mugford have expressed their frustration at getting so many off top replies.

There is another side to all of this where many members now start a thread and make clear that they will report everyone who sends a name that’s is outside the listed criteria.

This has sparked some to want to find ways to punish those who make those threats. Over the summer someone asked me if I got the email from a group of people looking to block or ignore those members who threatened other members? I did not.

Namepros will give you an infraction point for sending names that don’t match, now how many points and how often I don’t know? Some want to know what is the actual punishment for sending names that don’t match.

Then there are those that ostracize and exclude buyers who have what some see as stupid budgets or as one person said to me, “an idiotic budget that shows they are a broke bitch!”

Either way it’s a mess, domains wanted has been out of hand for a long time. 

This alternate method could be the better way to go.

4600.com at $51,000 closes today at GoDaddy

4600.com

Not too often does an expired 4N.com make it to the last day on GoDaddy auctions. They usually get renewed, but 4600.com is past 30 days expired and cannot be renewed as it’s registered at GoDaddy.

The auction is currently at $51,000. Only 14 reported 4N.com sales in 2019. 2018 had 25 reported sales and 2017 had 32 reported sales.

With only 1000 of these highly sought after domains, fewer and fewer are becoming available. Of course these are most popular in China, and the registrant of 4600.com looks to have been Chinese.

Usually combinations with a 4 or a 0 are not as popular with the Chinese investor.

We will see where this name closes as today is the last day of the auction.

The shared task of management and staff is to match those unique attributes with opportunities that create value while also having fun doing it. As part of a planned international expansion, Epik is now looking for four types of staff:

  • Brand Ambassadors
  • County or Region Managers
  • Product Managers

The below overview provides context on each category with details on how to apply.

Brand Ambassador

Brand Ambassadors will typically be organized by geography or language, but can also be organized by vertical or specialty or shared community interest that the brand ambassador knows well.

Brand ambassadors engage niche and local communities to leverage tools and services from Epik to increase digital empowerment, for example:

  • Social Media
  • Message board engagement
  • Seminars and Training events
  • Organize street teams
  • Channel Partnerships

We bring cutting edge technology that empowers, and do it at price points that anyone can afford. As we do this, we seek to be truly local: immersed in local culture, language and respecting local traditions.

The role can be part-time or full-time, and is well-suited to persons who are early in their career or want to be part of a high energy organization where they can learn and grow.

Compensation is locally competitive, and can be paid out daily, weekly or monthly. In the true spirit of meritocracy, compensation growth and performance bonuses are tied to impact.

Although brand ambassadors are not eligible to participate in the affiliate program, they can own domains for their own account and are encouraged to shoot the moon!

High performing brand ambassadors have the opportunity to become County or Region Managers

To apply, send a letter of introduction to Spencer Iacobelli: spencer@epik.com.

Country Manager or Region Manager

Once a country has at least 500 registered Epik.com users, we seek to appoint a country manager who will work with the management team to develop and execute the overall strategy for local market leadership. The country manager is developing local best practices, while leveraging global core competencies.

The country managers are empowered to build thriving local communities that can leverage the fast-growing set of tools available from Epik. Country managers actively learn from each other, quickly reapplying locally executed success models that are piloted in lead countries.

Country managers are the local feet on the ground. Their local presence also entails working with the ccTLD registry and local regulatory authorities. Country managers are also responsible for the development of local talent, and work with senior management to explore strategic opportunities.

To apply, send letter of introduction to Frank Meester, frank@epik.com.

What types of people succeed at Epik?

We develop courageous leaders who master productivity hacks, as a way to increase impact while enhancing quality of life and unleashing creative and inventive capacity. We place an emphasis on personal productivity helping staff to realize their true capacity.

While we warmly embrace diversity in our organization, there are some attributes that tend to appear early on among the staff who are most likely to succeed and grow. For example:

  • Self-starter
  • Problem solver
  • Adaptable
  • High integrity
  • Impact-focused
  • Tech-curious
  • Team player

As most of our back-office systems are in English, English fluency is strongly preferred. However, if someone is still learning English and is committed to achieve eventual fluency, we’ll work with that person and get by with online translation tools where needed.

We trust our people to make wise choices, but also recognize that with speed, come mistakes. Our HR handbook is relatively simple: Do the right thing, even when nobody’s looking. We may stretch people beyond their comfort zone, but also value life balance and time away from work.

What role is best for me?

Most people will typically identify a primary role where they believe and, we believe, they can succeed. Once onboarded, and after initial training, we’ll also be on the lookout for opportunities to give you a project that plays to your unique strengths or passions.
