A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on September 13, 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.

174 Domain Discoveries for September 14th

Every day we scan more than one hundred thousand domains across all the major marketplaces and pending delete lists to find domains you can buy that have sold in the past. Sale history, like the age of a domain name, is a great proxy for quality to help the cream rise to the top. Today’s list has 174 domains for sale with history. […]

What to Do With an Unused Domain Name

Online, a domain name is used to provide identity to a website. In a way, it is similar to a phone number. Those searching for information on Microsoft products, head to, and so forth. Although many domain names are in use, others are not. These domain names have been purchased, but are sitting unused. For most, this is a big mistake. Why? Because there are many ways in which a domain name owner can make money. How?

If you find a domain name that is unused, research. Is that domain name a common or popular name? Can it be used to generate income through affiliate programs and pay-per-click advertising? Can it be resold for a profit? If so, contact the owner. You can do so by performing a WHOIS search. If the domain owner has their information set to public, you can see it. This allows you to set up contact and offer purchase. If the current owner is unfamiliar with computers or domain name flipping, they may not know how valuable their name is, giving you an opportunity to turn a huge profit.

As shown above, you can make money with unused domain names that you do not own by offering a purchase. This is a good approach to take, but it will be hit or miss. You may have an owner who is unwilling to sell or one who wants too much money. For that reason, focus your attention on domain names you own or intend to buy.

If you own a domain that that is sitting unused, consider flipping it. You can usually make a profit. Find a third party website that allows you to list your domain for sale, such as These websites usually have a solid marketing plan in place, meaning your for sale listing will be seen. The only downside is that you are charged a fee. You can also opt for free methods of selling. Posting an advertisement on, social media or ads on google or bing search are some ways to get started.

A domain name can also be used. A website with good content can make money through pay-per-click programs and affiliate programs. So, why don’t you take a domain name that you own that includes the phrase free samples and list articles about finding free samples. Pay-per-click advertisements will show offers for free samples, so your site visitors will click on them. Each time a click is made, you make money. If you aren’t a good writer, hire one.

When using a domain name, look for options. A domain name isn’t enough, you need web hosting or a platform. is home to Blogger. With this, you are able to attach a domain name to a blog. This means that you use the Blogger platform for free, but still have your own domain name. This extends your profits, as you don’t have to pay for web hosting.

Domain name parking is the phrase to describe a domain name not in use. It is parked and waiting for further action. Many times, a domain name is parked when a webmaster is working on building a website. Other times, a domain name is parked when someone is waiting to flip and make a sale. Instead of having a “this site is now under construction,” or a “page not found,” message appear, have moneymaking advertisements show. Afternic, TheParkingPlace and Sedo have moneymaking programs available for parked domains.

Finally, all domain owners have the option of letting their domain names expire. Yes, this is an option, but it isn’t a good one. Why pay $10 or more for a domain name and then not use it or at least try to profit from it? Did you want to start a website about free product samples and then change your mind? Instead of letting your domain name expire, sell it. Even if you only make $5, you still don’t waste money.


Have a great weekend.

Should you ever criticize the portfolio of another?

Criticizing Domain Investors
A bit of conversation today about critiquing another domain owners portfolio.
MapleDots started a post on Namepros giving a tip of the cap to Morgan Linton on his apology post to a .cx registrant.
Well I have looked at this from many angles for many years. Back when I started the .tv subforum when Namepros was not what it is today, when there was no such thing as a sub forum that focused on one extension, there would be some people who had differing opinions and then some people who just came to troll.
Now the community did not tolerate fools and it was dealt with every step of the way.
On the flipside, I never hyped or told one single person to ever register a .tv name. I don’t know your finances, business acumen, linguistics skills, risk tolerance, and last but not least, usually overlooked, your patience level. Many men and women can’t or don’t want to wait 3, 5, 10 years for a vision to come together.
I would always say, “why people who have no vested interest in another person’s money, try to tell them how to spend it, is funny.”
Now there are different discussion parameters, if you are investing and hyping you are going to get called out, doesn’t matter what anyone believes should be a professional decorum. If you are out regging .PW names for example and you are professing how great they are and how smart you are buying names in an extension with 18 recorded sales, there is going to be words of criticism coming in your direction.
If you just own them because you like them and believe they will sell, that’s a different story, no one should be talking smack to you.
I have always believed it depends if someone is asking for an opinion or hyping, well then there will be some words back.
Domaining doesn’t have a qualifying set of professional standards, if I was a Nascar driver, at a minimum I would know everyone on the racetrack with me in the upcoming event, knows how to drive, they might be better or worse as a driver but at least I know they can drive. In domaining everyone does not know how to drive. You need some currency and you can register a domain and BOOM you are a domainer, at least in your own eyes.
The other thing about domaining is it’s still a very solitary, sometimes lonely business and that also means you don’t know what someone else knows. They might have a deeper knowledge or even better a deeper reach in an industry where they have access to people who will listen to their pitch and might buy a name that if I owned, I would have no chance of getting heard.
The way I thought new gtlds could have any success was to pick an area or industry where you have above average knowledge or contacts, try to educate and actively sell to your network or industry.
There are some domainers that have great success selling Geo related names  and real estate based names because they were in those fields or locations. They had a leg up on other domain investors who did not come from real estate or have a family of realtors.
Many people in this world have interesting stories but if you have contacts in Hollywood, there is a greater chance of your story getting made into a movie, at the very least you will get a meeting to pitch your screenplay more often than someone with no ties but feels they have a knack for storytelling.
Domaining sometimes reminds me of Poker, where someone who is deemed a “fish” gets berated at a table when they suck out on someone. The person who believes they are a pro keeps berating the person until they leave. Others at the table get pissed not at the “fish” but at the loudmouth who chased the fish away. They have the belief the fish will eventually call off all their money, they don’t want them leaving the table.
Domain investors should be glad there are people doing things they would never invest in. It means less competition in whatever your strategy happens to be. If you have say 1000 people for hypothetical purposes, investing in alt extensions and you convince them they are fools, that only privately owned .coms and expiring auctions are the one true way, well now you just created 1000 new competitors for yourself. Why would you want that?
Commentary is important when someone is hyping and possibly misleading or rigging a market, where other new investors could be misled or scammed, then people should stand up and say something, point out the facts and let people decide for themselves before they follow the pied piper of alternative domain names.
Another component is that many don’t want your advice, they want you to validate their choices and if you don’t you are just a hater. So a lot of times the juice is not worth the squeeze and people need to find their own way in domaining. Those who want advice and are willing to learn will usually do better.

Top Topics: Mike Mann is 526 Away from 350,000; Your 5 Best Hand Reg Domains… CEO Mike Mann revealed yesterday via Twitter that he is just 526 domains away from owning a portfolio of 350,000. This is a phenomenal milestone that just a handful of people will ever achieve, but it does come at a steep cost, literally. Aside from acquisition fees, annual renewal fees on a 350,000 strong portfolio will be significant.
