A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on November 14, 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.

Other Names at Auction I think this ends up as the highest price on the board

$4,110 And this one has the best letters

$2,950 If you can get this one at $500 you’d be doing very well IMO

$655 Upgrade acronym for hundreds of entities

Europeans, Get Your .EU Domains All In Greek!

Domain names entirely in Greek script are now available from the .eu registry, EURid, with the launch this week of .ευ.

.ευ is the third top-level domain launched by EURid with the original .eu and then the Cyrillic version of .eu, .ею, in June 2016. Now there’s a Greek version too. And following changes to eligibility last month, citizens of a European Union country anywhere in the world can not only register .eu domain names but also .ευ.

“The .eu in Greek will enable end-users to enjoy the full Internationalised Domain Names experience in Greek, as Greek domain names will be registered under the Greek extension,” said Giovanni Seppia, EURid External Relations Manager.

“We worked hard to have the .eu in Greek delegated with ICANN/IANA and we are grateful to our industry peers who supported us throughout a process that has lasted a decade. We are delighted to add the Greek extension to the list of features for our registrars and registrants.”

All domain names registered under .ευ must be in Greek script and EURid will fully enforce the basic rule that the second-level script must match the top-level script. This means that any current domain names registered in Greek under .eu (Latin string) will undergo a three-year ‘script adjustment’ phase. All policies, procedures and features currently available for .eu (such as transfers, bulk transfers, multiyear, DNSSEC, registry lock, etc.) will also apply to .ευ.

For more information, EURid has a dedicated .ευ page at:

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday November 15th, 2019

Lets play a little game. You tell me a name you think is awesome and I’m going to make fun of it and tell you why its a bad name. The roast me of domain names. It should be pretty easy based on the names that are submitted every time a domain site or twitter account asks for names that readers would sell based on a range. I could make it easy and give you a range of names I’m looking for but I’m pretty sure they will all be shitty names and easy to roast.

What made me think of this was Sedo is holding an iGaming auction and are looking for submissions. But there was a problem. They don’t want eGaming names. They want gaming as in gambling names. So everyone that submitted game related names were told they aren’t the kind of names their are looking for. They didn’t tell the owners why other than they weren’t the type of name they’re looking for but its pretty easy to see once you look at the names they took. But here is where the bad names come in. A few readers said “Yeah, but they rejected my gambling names too” and followed with some not so good gambling names. Names that no way would make an auction a good auction with their inclusion. Again reminding me that most domain investors just don’t know what a good name looks like.

So give me your name and I’ll lay in to it. May not be instant because I have a few meetings today but I promise I’ll make sure you wish you never would have bought it or in most cases hand registered it

ICANN68 Fellowship Application Round Now Open

LOS ANGELES – 15 November 2019 – Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) opened the Fellowship Program application round for ICANN68. This round is open only to those who have previously completed an ICANN Fellowship because ICANN68 is a Policy Forum. The meeting will be held from 22–25 June 2020 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The deadline to apply is 15 December 2019, 23:59 UTC. Successful candidates will be announced on 24 February 2020 on

ICANN Fellowship Program

The Fellowship Program seeks out individuals who are interested in, or already engaged in, the various aspects of ICANN's work in policymaking, the operation of the Domain Name System (DNS), and the security and stability of the global Internet. The goal of the ICANN Fellowship Program is to strengthen the diversity of the multistakeholder model by fostering opportunities for individuals from underserved and underrepresented communities to become active participants in the ICANN community.

Since its creation in 2007, the Fellowship Program has built a strong group of individuals who are actively participating in the ICANN community and other Internet governance entities within the Internet ecosystem. Participation covers a range of activities, including:

  • Writing articles and blogs
  • Giving online or in-person public comments about bottom-up policymaking
  • Participating in Internet conferences and panel discussions
  • Joining working groups
  • Mentoring newcomers
  • Assisting our regional leaders
  • Personal leadership development

For more information, please visit this page.


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.

Will the decline of Venture Capital in China increase demand for domain names?

For those who know me, you know that I read the Wall Street Journal every day, have for years – moved from the paper version to the digital version a few years ago. I’m possibly one of the only people who reads the Journal and watches Cheddar eSports news updates every day, but hey – that’s me!

Okay – now back to the topic of this post, the decline of Venture Capital activity in Japan. Today there was an interesting article in the Journal about the end of China’s Venture Capital Boom. In it, they shared some interesting data on the decline in both number of funds and money raised by funds in China, here’s a high-level look at the numbers:

Source – Preqin

The article goes on to talk about how VC firms in China didn’t turn out to be the golden ticket to riches so many people had hoped they would be. As a result, the startup ecosystem is shrinking, funding is declining, and well, talk of China becoming the next Silicon Valley has been put on hold.

Of course, as a domain investor this got me thinking. If people who were looking to get a higher than normal return are moving their money out of startups in China, this could mean domain names could come back in style.

For anyone who has been following the domain market in China you know that it peaked a few years ago and then dropped, and well, it hasn’t ever recovered. I’m wondering if 2020 could be the year we see a shift as funds move away from startups and venture capital in China and into alternative assets.

Meet Dr. Paul Mockapetris: Inventor of the Domain Name System

Over the years domain investors and website developers change DNS settings countless times, and the whole system just works. The field of domain name investment exists because standards were developed to robustly link domain names and internet addresses. This means that names that resonate with humans have great value. At the 2019 NamesCon conference, I had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Paul Mockapetris, who invented the Domain Name System (DNS) architecture back in 1983. He...
