A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on April 21, 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.

Namejet Names at Auction
The screenshots below are examples of buyers of domains from the past few months that have either developed their sites, or purchased an upgrade domain and have redirected their acquisition to an existing website.
KabobHouse.com sold for $3,000 on Sedo. The name went to a small restaurant chain with four locations in Washington state. Restaurant names like this can be found in the drop almost every day. I buy some of them, but I don’t remember if I’ve ever sold one. I always feel like small restaurant owners are pinched enough and probably not willing to fork over much for their domain. This is a nice sale.
HotelRegina.com sold for $2,050 on Namejet. To me, this looks like a nice little avoid a UDRP buildout. The ideal buyer of the name would be the Hotel Regina in Paris. The current buildout claims to be a guide to the hotels of Regina, Saskatchewan Canada – although I can’t find anything about any hotels in that area on the site.
SwimmingPool.de sold for $14,408 on Sedo. The name redirects to a German swimming pool builder called Desjoyaux Pools. I’m not familiar with the .de domain market, but this seems like a really nice sale to me at over $14K. In German, it would be schwimmbad.de, but that is already in use. Maybe this is the next best thing.
Smilestones.com sold for $4,950 on Sedo. It is a cute play on smile and milestones but also a name that means Swiss Mile Stones. Smilestones is a miniature world at the Rhine Falls in Switzerland.
PestBox.com sold for $2,500 on Sedo. The name redirects to domyown.com’s new pest box pest control subscription service. “Get the professional pest control products you need to prevent pests throughout the year, customized to your home’s size and location.” There are a ton of box names in use by companies, because subscriptions are real money makers.

I love and appreciate Namejet. Its positive for our industry to have as many options for buying and selling names as possible. They pay us to promote names as well as sellers to help them individually promote names at auction. But it now takes me two to three times longer to peruse the selling list even though there are half as many names at auction.
Big portfolio owners sell their domains through Namejet which is a good thing. It puts higher quality names in front of us to be able to buy. The problem is the owners understandably don’t want them to go cheap so they put a pretty high reserve on the names. And I don’t have a good tool to see the reserves in a spreadsheet form. That means every name I like I have to click on the name and see what the reserve is. 9 times out of 10 its a bit higher than what I deem a wholesale price. I put names on the list that I think will make reserve and I’m almost always correct on whether these high reserve names sell. I don’t want to get you excited with a good name and then it has a $25K reserve. So look and click, look and click. This is not the fault of Namejet. They absolutely should take these names. They are great names and some sell. It’s a me thing. I need better tools to filter by reserve.
In writing Update: And as I type this I realize that on expireddomains.net if I keep my cursor over the column that shows its a reserve it shows the reserve price. I had no idea. I’m sure some blog talked about it but I don’t read much. Now I know. I now get back 15-30 minutes of my life back. Life is good. Hear are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD keep on keeping on
