    I’ll share a few recent aquisitions: (auction & my fav grab on the list) (auction) (hand reg) (hand reg today) (hand reg) (auction) (auction) (hand reg) (hand reg) (hand reg)

    Trying to move in the direction of things trending with my “hand reg/auction play money” or a small gamble on brandables for end users, I guess…I tend to not gamble with my investments, but a few domains here and there are ok to me as long as I put in the effort to sell or monetize/build.

    A couple comments have gone into spam because Akismet plugin thinks multiple domain names means spam. If your comment(s) goes into the spam folder, I’ll see it and manually approve it eventually.

    Some great domains, Elliot. is a fantastic domain. The exact match and CPC stats on it are excellent.

    One of my favorite recent purchases (acquired privately) is:

    Elliot, you should look at and related domains; as you have a DragonGirl having been born in the lucky Year of the Dragon

    January WSJ article noted effort made by many Chinese to have baby in a ‘Year of the Dragon’ considered especially lucky

    @ Elliot, I like your list, esp. ParquetFloor & WebsiteLookup.

    @ Michael, I like 3dDesignCompanies & 3dHomeModeling – you know I have 3DDesignSoftware!

    Thanx for asking. Along with TabletHybrid (under development), I cornered a niche in July with hand regs, all dot com:


    August 20th, 2012 at 12:35 pm


      So, you people didn’t like hybridremote[s] dot com . . . Today, Nintendo announced its Nintendo TVii on the Wii U gamepad:

      You’ll be able to access Netflix, HuluPlus, Amazon Instant Video, a dvr like tivo, and regular tv channels in one guide, and use it as a remote control to select the program for the tv screen; then you’ll be able to chat about the program, play games, and take quizzes about the show you’re watching.

      It will be truly hybrid when you can modify your air conditioning and dim the lights on the same device . . .

      September 13th, 2012 at 7:55 pm


      . . . adjust the screen width, play ancillary content, and turn the tv on and off, all on one remote! Right now, I have 3 remotes for one tv!

    I like – very surprised there wasn’t more interest (I think < 10 bidders). (orig reg'd june 1997)

    August 20th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

      Elliot Silver

      I was surprised, too, and I think I got it for a very good price.

      August 20th, 2012 at 1:31 pm


    Also Elliot- Thank you for this! It’s awesome that you open up discussion for others to share what they are investing in and not just self promotion, which is not what I’m implying you’re doing. You’re simply sharing what you’ve grabbed recently. Quite fair and honorable.


    @Louise- lets combine forces somehow?!

    Hi Elliot and everybody!

    I noticed that you nearly always speak about “english language” domain names. What do you think about portuguese and spanish language domains investments?

    I would be happy to get your opinion about those two domains :

    – (“Jogos online” means “online games” in portuguese, and represents 6 millions exact monthly searches in Brazil)

    – (“Juegos gratis” means “free games” in spanish, and represents 2 millions exact monthly searches in Mexico)

    Any price range?

    Thanks in advance!

    I work hard. Are you willing to work hard? Domainers want a big reward without much effort – what about you?

    August 20th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Acro is owned by Mike Berkens. Must be a common typo made by domainers.

    August 20th, 2012 at 8:38 pm


    I like the recent acquisition thing, very good Elliot!


    Some good, some ok, some looooong but sellable…

    Of the group above I believe is the best.
    Recently I picked up several Keyword/s domains. A few examples…

    Spanish… (exercise TV) (real estate TV) (bodybuilding TV) (puppies TV) (cars TV) (florist TV) (cheap TV)

    August 20th, 2012 at 9:03 pm



    I don’t appreciate you pushing the “dislike” button multiple times on my posts and domains, Really!!

    Stop it. I know it’s you.

    August 20th, 2012 at 9:18 pm

      Elliot Silver

      LOL… you do know you can only push like or dislike once, right?

      August 20th, 2012 at 9:20 pm


      but as the admin, you get more buttons, no?

      August 20th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

      Elliot Silver

      I have no control over the likes/dislikes. This was custom made for my blog, so it’s not like there’s an actual plugin with a control panel. Even I don’t know who is pushing like or dislike, which is pretty obvious since there’s no sign in required to use that functionality.

      August 20th, 2012 at 9:25 pm


    Ok, I pushed a couple of “dislike” for yours thinking you started it. Don’t give me dislike if you don’t want any, fair?

    Oh, any jackass can buy a domain, but it takes a builder to develop a brand –

    Who cares about dislikes, glad you had the typo fixed.

      Elliot Silver

      Probably because other people are as confused as I was.

      As I mentioned before, I have no way of tracking who pressed what buttons (or who pressed any buttons).

      If I could read minds, I probably wouldn’t be in this business, and I certainly wouldn’t be blogging. :)

    You guys didn’t like my HybridRemotes. What about DualScreenApps?

    August 21st, 2012 at 8:13 pm


    Like or dislike doesnt concern me.

    It is easier to press ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ than giving out a constructive feedback.

    The important thing is how you develop the domain and make it ‘more’ valuable.

    August 21st, 2012 at 10:15 pm

      Elliot Silver

      It’s also important to know when not to spend time and money developing something. For instance, if you aren’t passionate about a topic, it’s likely that you’ll lose interest and that doesn’t bode well for the success of the site.

      That’s what I always thought, and it is my modus operandi . . . People think my portfolio is lame, but there is really a theme running through my emerging tech domains! When you own names as good as mine, development of at least some of them is obigation.

    Well said! I liked your comment, too. Sometimes it’s hard to come by validation in the domain community. There is nothing left, but to stick to your narrow vision, if you believe in it.

    August 22nd, 2012 at 12:39 am


    @ Louise

    Looks like my archery domains above suck :)

    In this business you have to have a thick skin.

    August 22nd, 2012 at 8:25 am

    Robert MacGuffie

    “if you aren’t passionate about a topic, it’s likely that you’ll lose interest and that doesn’t bode well for the success of the site.”

    My understanding is that, even if you are not particularly interested in a topic, you can have articles, blog posts, etc added at very low cost. Trying to sell advertising space and constantly monitoring forum comments could be prohibitive for me, no matter how passionate I feel about a particular subject.

    August 22nd, 2012 at 9:07 am


    Acro holds the world record for “dislike” on Elliot’s blog with this post, look, I will post it below, here, look:

      The feature is fairly new. I am sure someone else will take the record. Probably another post about recently acquired domain names.

      August 22nd, 2012 at 11:28 am


    Recent is relative…I generally get 0-5 domains a year.

    My favorite recent acquisition is:

    Hand registration of the day: made a small blog and poll about NY mayor Michael R.Bloomberg’s plan to prohibit sales of large sugary drinks in ny..
    Hope i Will get a better idea soon..

    August 22nd, 2012 at 4:13 pm


    Is it much better to buy a website rather than building it myself?

    August 22nd, 2012 at 10:01 pm

      Elliot Silver

      Depends on the website and your ability to create and market a website.
