    Are you happy to give a rough idea (just off the top of your head) of how many names you have on Afternic?

    I reg'd around 4,600 names ~60 days ago and added them all to Afternic. Made 50% my investment back already.

    Very Congratulations! @Zandibot, You are amazing, May I ask you, do buyers know these names are yours because of that they buy it or you have something different inside, please share with one or two of your secrets man, (why Afternic, why 4,600) Thanks for sharing, keep it up,

    @NameClerk.com shut me up if I'm hijacking ;) But I think it's relevant to what you are selflessly doing here.

    Thanks bro.

    I don't think any of the buyers know who the person is that they are buying it from.

    With Afternic - the domain names get shown directly in the registrar path. Which is the most important thing to note. A lot of these types of endusers only know of GoDaddy, so they head over and start typing names in to see if they are available. Having them at Afternic allows that to happen. So if they type in something like "Shorteo" (another domain Bill listed) this is what they'll see:

    Screen Shot 2017-04-16 at 9.22.34 AM.png

    That is why I use Afternic for these types of names. As they are usually impulse buys from someone constantly seeing that a domain they like isn't available and when they see one that is - they get excited and move forward.

    There is no big "secret" to how it's done. The only thing that separates names that have a higher chance of selling and those that won't is research and data driven registrations. The internet is filled with data and there are numerous creative ways to extract it to build your own system of registering domains with certain metrics that have proven to have a higher chance of selling.

    Why 4,600? Because that's as many as I could register before the FastHost promo ended ;)

    I only work this method for these types of names. For my long term names, I do it differently.

    No worries @Zandibot. I encourage it. Without sales, there's no point in sharing names like this. The more information shared, the better as far as I'm concerned.

    Next list will be posted Wednesday at 4:30pm EST. Thanks to all that responded, it's much appreciated.

    As a whole, I think the overall quality is down a bit this week. I didn't change my process at all, I just think either registrations have picked up, or it was a slow week for quality drops.

    4/16/2017 All available for hand registration.

    * - I was in such a rush that I forgot to check all these for availability before I posted them. They were available yesterday but I'm sure about half a dozen of them got picked off since then.

    Thanks man!

    I grabbed:

    BloodReserve.com - It reminds me of a blood bank / cord blood bank. A reserve is similar imo. Could be a much bigger thing in the years to come.

    My favorite three are still around:

    Cyclogenic
    DivineGround
    ForgeShield

    I'm not in a regging mood though, so just sharing in case anyone else wants to take a stab.

    Google the last one to see a potential end-user.

    I disagree Bill. I think todays list has a ton of quality names! There were a few I checked as soon as I could that were already regged that are pretty awesome.

    My Lanvox I think is awesome and I was pretty late, LAN (Local Area Network) Vox (Voice), everything is going to voice today!

    I really like this one too. Looked at it a couple times.

    Just barely scanning the list
    FineEspresso
    MotoSled
    etc...still available.

    Bill if these are low quality names, please let me know as soon as the great quality list comes out!!! :)

    I'm kinda glad. Was with a parade of noisy family/friends hitting reload like wonder if he's gonna post on Easter. Luckily I was able to pass as would have been hard to concentrate on my decision process if I spotted a parade of gems like a few recent lists you've posted. (y)

    Vioflex.com is a nice brandable domain but a quite search shows that it is already registered trademark. How can we search trademark database?

    Search database for trademark registrations and applications by mark, owner, or serial/registration number with Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) @ https://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-application-process/search-trademark-database

    Hi Bill,

    I took 3, including....
    Aqua Tronic
    Killer name, yea? And in the King
    Bam!!! The race was on, first name in the cart, no worries about anything else,
    just get this puppy reg'd NOW.

    My heart was a thumpin... I did a quick search and saw the net was a high powered site.
    I wondered how such an outstanding domain like.....
    Aqua Tronic ever made it through the drops...
    Winner!!!!!

    Problem is, as everyone here is aware by now, in my haste I read it wrong... lol
    After I added the names to my proggy, low and behold, somebody elses name was on the whois... wtf?

    Then I look... because I'd copy/pasted the name directly from the list, and then copy / pasted it into the cart, I never noticed it was not Aqua Tronic, but was in fact, Agua Tronic.

    Wooooosh... All the air went out of my balloon.
    Silly Cyberian.... and not even drunk.... (yet)

    So just a reminder, we all make mistakes.
    The sad part..... This isn't even in the top 5 of typo reg's I've made over the years.

    Peace,
    Cy
