Here are some things I’ve been thinking about lately.

Man with thought bubble

It must be difficult for expired domain name research tools to compete with It’s hard to beat free with such a solid feature set.

There’s a new domain name generator out that you might want to check out, called NameBounce. I tried it and got some good results. My favorite name generator is still LeanDomainSearch, and it appears to have gotten an upgrade recently.

Sedo’s auction board isn’t as active as GoDaddy and NameJet, but it’s worth stopping in from time-to-time. Right now has 16 bids and is $650. has 17 bids and is EUR 355. Someone placed a $4,200 bid on; I suspect that was pushed to auction after an offer.

Speaking of Sedo, I’d like to give them props for continuing to publish sales data. It’s very helpful for the industry.

For everyone who blasts GoDaddy’s appraisals, I challenge them to sort an expired domain list by the GoValues. Each value might not be perfect, but you’ll notice a marked drop in quality as you go down the list.

I sold another domain through Afternic today and I’m thinking it’s time for me to switch to buy now landers. I waste lots of time responding to inquiries with prices. I like how easy buy now is.
