Neustar Domain Names

Predictions for the Future Trend Domain Auction™

36

I saw the list of domain names and prices for Stephen Douglas’ Future Trend Domain Auction™ which will be held on Snapnames from August 24, 2011 at noon through August 30, 2011 at 3:15pm EST. I am not a big fan of buying or registering any type of “trend” domain names, but I believe many people do buy these names with the hopes of striking it rich.

The list of domain names and reserve prices are listed below, and further below is a poll question asking how you think this auction will perform. I understand Stephen and the domain owners will be heavily marketing and advertising these domain names to companies that may be interested in making a purchase, so perhaps end user participation will help propel this auction.

You can learn more about the auction at Snapnames.

    ze

    Out of the over 2000 domains submitted, this is what they “hand picked”..? seems to me like “someone” is pushing a lot of their own inventory…

    – is WorldCupDetails.com really a FTD?? a trademark FTD?

    August 13th, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    Gene

    @ ze

    You’re right on the money. That’s precisely what I suspected would happen, because it always seems to happen; and why I didn’t bother to submit any names (even though I own the largest “Hologram” dot-com portfolio in existence).

    I do hope that it’s successful for everyone’s sake, but the names ‘selected’ are clearly not the best they could offer.

    Stephen Douglas seems to be very nice and intelligent guy but I just don’t see this auction doing anything. All I can say is…I was going to do a story on this but felt I was being much too negative.

    August 13th, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    BullS

    3Dblip and Poops….

    and more of “BullS” domains.

    going to sell for nothing!!!

    I’m hopeful of my entry: 3DDesignSoftware. Maybe it appears longtail, but it actually has some [1300] Exact US searches, and approximate CPC of over $3.00.

    It probably is one of my most valuable dot coms, and I’ll develop it concurrent with the auction, because I am not depending on selling it.

    August 13th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    Steve Police

    Each name, worth arounf 50 to 100 bucks. Some maybe around $200. Very poor quality names. Anything with a number in it is worth very little to me.

    August 13th, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    OceanTurbine.com $10,001 – $25,000

    oceanturbines.net
    and
    RobotSupply.net

    ..are available right now.

    I’m sure there are others as well.

    One thing for sure I know, you remember those “OLD” vinyl records that you think are old…well they are coming back strong and the demand is so high.

    I know because I have many offers on my domain recordlp.com

    and I have many old Beatles records too.

    August 13th, 2011 at 6:12 pm

    Snoopy

    The names are mostly rubbish, I expect the sell rate to be in low single figures. These are the type of names where there is a lot of people on the “sell” and very few on the “buy” side. Not sure what snapnames was thinking when they thought the auction would be a good idea.

    3d phones are just hitting the market making these 2 domains a bargain imo.

    I think WaterproofTablets.Com is something we will see in the near future and thats why I regged it.We’ll see what happpens.

    @ Alan…LOL, do you own them?

    What a garbage list

    August 13th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Brad Mugford

    I am all for “future trends”, but most of these names are garbage with ridiculous reserves.

    When domains like OrangeJuice.com, and HealthCare.net are selling for under $50K, why would anyone buy these domains for tens of thousands?

    Brad

    August 13th, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    I am not sure how WorldCupDetails.com is a “future trend”, but, it appears to be available to hand reg –

    “No match for domain “WORLDCUPDETAILS.COM”.

    @BullS

    Sweet… My ClassicVinyl.com was a future trend reg from 2001. Can you say WINNING… lol.

    August 13th, 2011 at 11:42 pm

    LS Morgan

    mark: winning indeed. I’m a collector myself.
    That’s a good domain.

    Now, do something with it. :)

    August 13th, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    BullS

    Mark.. recordlp.com is better and I have old Beatles records too.

    August 14th, 2011 at 12:04 am

    MarkH

    @L S Morgan… Right? Thank you. I should do something with it as I do love vinyl, really. My company name was Vinyl Grooves for 15 years. I mainly sold vinyl, memorabilia and music stuff. I recently shortened it to Vgrooves since I am working more with online virtual, viral, visual, video stuff now – mostly I work with “trendy stuff” that starts with “V”, lol…

    In all seriousness though and on the trend tip. I am an old dot commer that usually keeps to myself but WTF – I think I am “trending”. Over the last 10 years I have acquired and sold domains like highperformance.com, jobinterview.com, flushots.com, norx.com, etc. I am sure I haven’t “trended” much before. But now, I must confess, I think I have been “future trending” in .tv’s this year: tube.tv, society.tv, moviestar.tv, rockstar.tv, comedian.tv, audition.tv, oops.tv, tip.tv, topic.tv, browse.tv, chatroom.tv, debut.tv, rafting.tv, mob.tv, mojo.tv… I have been getting stuff like that for what seems like bargains and since I have turned down consideraly more in offers on these .tv’s in the last few months than I paid for them and I got the first one in january it is making me want to trend more. I have sold a few but now I am mostly thinking about keeping the ones I have and developing them into “V” sites – and getting more…

    I have never reg’d a .biz, .mobi, .info, .etc. I did get a few one word .us’s in ’02 and a very few .co’s last year that I sold but other than that I don’t think I have ever “trended” before and it is a little unnerving. I didn’t get any blog domains, I didn’t get any tube domains (until tube.tv), I didn’t get any cloud domains. Am I trending now???

    August 14th, 2011 at 2:41 am

    LS Morgan

    There are some neat scripts out there that allow you to scrape and catalog ebay auction results.

    Check out PriceCharting dot com, which has the classic video game market nailed down.

    I could totally see something like this working for vinyl. You could crowdsource the DB entries allowing users to enter any title that wasn’t already in the DB, which would then start tracking that entry. Over time, it would probably evolve into a pretty comprehensive, interactive DB that could be integrated with EPN buttons so they could click through to examine the auctions, with your cookie getting the commission.

    August 14th, 2011 at 7:20 am

    LS Morgan

    Oh, and cash-machine city; if you SEO the pages, you’d start conquering the SERP for a lot of album titles that have essentially no meaningful keyword competition, but are still searched by people looking to buy. Over time, as thousands of titles became tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, and all those pages got indexed, that’s a LOT of lines in the Google water and a lot of people clicking through with their wallets open.

    August 14th, 2011 at 7:26 am

    Patricia Kaehler

    It will be interesting to watch the results…I figured something was in the air related to “3d” I’ve been getting more requests for those in the DG postings than any other search term for the past 5 weeks…

    Above someone posted about a tool to gather info from eBay… What tool is that — post or eMail me (thx in advance)

    Forget 3D… The next ‘big’ thing coming for gamers is ‘haptics! (Greek for ‘touch)…. With Disney’s latest Surround Haptics technology, this will change the future of feeling reality.
    Perhaps I should have listed SurroundTouch.com in the Future Trend Domain Auction.
    Oh well…

    “Not sure what snapnames was thinking when they thought the auction would be a good idea.”

    @ Snoopy

    They only have upside, IMO. It costs them very little to upload the names, and if they aren’t responsible for marketing, they will get commission on whatever sells but have no real costs associated with holding the auction. I believe just about anyone can set up their own auction on Snapnames.

    VisitnSaintVincent.com

    and am looking to sell them but am not sure how much I should ask. Any ideas?

    August 15th, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Alex

    In my opinion my (3) character domain name 3DV is a better bet to put your money on than many of those domain names that have been listed for the SnapNames auction.

    August 15th, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    MarkH

    @L S Morgan

    Really nice advice. I appreciate it. I am looking into all you mentioned. I am so immersed in a few other development projects that just keep get bigger and more complicated but I think I see a train (I mean a light) at the end of the tunnel, lol. We should talk???

    @Alex

    I agree. 3DV.com is better IMO than all the other domains in this auction combined. I know there is almost no comparison here but I have been dabbling in .tv’s lately and I got 3DX.tv a month ago at an expiring auction for $45 and just sold it for $275 (still in escrow, jinx?) which motivated me to grab 3DV.tv for $10 when it expired last week. I know it is not .com but nothing wrong with turning and burning and keeping the cash flow going. I immediately got a $100 offer on 3DV.tv when the whois showed up but I think I will hold out for a bit more.
