This morning I had noticed many domains move off of the normal routine out of GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio. At first, I thought the domains had sold but reached out to GoDaddy for confirmation as they all retained NameFind in whois.

The domains did not sell, and GoDaddy wanted to try something new, auction them on GoDaddy Auctions!

I think this is GREAT for domain investors because GoDaddy is offering them at pretty good prices.

What are the domains? Here are the ones I detected. These are affiliate links, so your clicks are appreciated and do not affect anything to your purchase prices.

View all 21 domains on auction here. Individual domains below  link directly to the specific auctions:

KeepCalm.com which was listed for $500 and hit reserve at a mere $2,500! This is a great domain, popular term and bidding has reached $5,149 at time of posting.

90210.com this extremely popular zip code domain name and is about as easy to remember as any! Starting price is only $20,000

Montego.com is a GEO domain name, with Montego Bay being the popular Jamaican destination. $5,000 opening bid price.

Abandoned.com one word dictionary terms are almost always wise investment. $2,500 opening bid price.

VF.net 2 letter domains in general are wise investments. In general, 2 letter .net domains have been selling for mid five figures according to NameBio. $5,000 opening bid on this one.

iWallet.com a brandable! Opening bid was only $500 and bidding quickly reached the reserve at $2,500, where it currently stands.

Manipulate.com another one word dictionary term. $5,000 starting price and reserve has been met with 1 bid currently.

SearchIt.com I don’t personally love this one, but it already has a $2,500 bid, so at least somebody likes it.

PetConnect.com this one started at $500 and is currently bid up to $630.

744.net has the reserve met on one bid at $4,000

Townhome.com a lot of bidding activity on this one! Popular in renting!

Pricing and reserves seem to be different, I’m sure they are testing price points to start and reserves.  Some domains are hitting reserves on first bid, some are not.
