Some New Domain Registrations


In the past couple of months, I’ve registered a few “new” domains. Some were expirations and a few were fresh registrations. (French Bulldog & Beagle Hybrid – I have a Puggle)

    Nothing spectacular here. I would not have registered them or buy them on the aftermarket.

      What are some of your recent registrations?

      February 5th, 2009 at 5:48 pm


    i like frengles since it is generic.

    heatingoildelivery – surprised that was available.

    fauxcolates – interesting name…now you need to create a product for the name.

    i don’t like the credit report names with the mix of words and numerals.

    deep sea fishing tour – only 2k unique results but hey it’s only $8. I spent more on lunch today.

    i’ve reg’d much worse…..

    What about
    Just asking

      I don’t get I look for names that can be used commercially when I buy.

    Some of my recent hand registrations in .com are:


    They were all drops.

    I like most of the ones on your list except for the two credit ones where three is spelled out but one is the number. I don’t think they’d get type-ins like that.

    Here are some of my recent ones:

    And here are other goodies had by GoDroppers:

    What is your plan with drinkkoozie & drinkkoozies? I think the names are good as there is a young (college age) population that are obsessed with these things. However, is the margin high enough on this type of product to put together an e-commerce site?

    Since people are throwing out hand registrations; how about: (pbg is short for palm beach gardens, which is commonly referred to as PBG)

    I am thinking about doing a mini-site with one of these names, but have not decided if they are worthy yet.

    @Elliot —- Good Job

    Hey I did not know you were a real pet lover. I used to have a doberman before I went to the desert for 2 years. That rascal was a handsome looking thing!

    I posted on my latest regs on my blog about two days ago

    February 5th, 2009 at 6:49 pm


    I love it!

    I love that you hand register new domains.
    I love doing it myself, it gives me a rush. (over 4,000 rushes to date)
    I love when people say their are no good domains left to hand register.
    (Hey, they’ve been saying this for at least seven years.)
    I love this business.

    About your names.

    I won’t comment whether good or bad, but these don’t pass the radio test.

    There are just too many combinations out there and they are registered.
    (threeand1, threeandone, 3and1, 3andone)

    Examples of some of my recent hand registrations include (but only one other variation)

    Some in the past couple of years that have received nice offers include

    This is not an appraisal thread.
    If anyone thinks they suck, that’s Ok.
    You don’t have to live with them. 🙂

    Again, thanks for sharing.

    I like these: is interesting.

    Hopping on the ‘these are my new regs’ bus –

    One can ‘jones’ without a new reg or two, now and then!!

    February 5th, 2009 at 7:19 pm



    I just hand regged It is a cross between and English Retriever and a Poodle. Pretty cool dog and not that bad of a hand reg.

    February 5th, 2009 at 7:37 pm


    I recently bought these available names: (used in digital cameras) (part in Binoculars) (Speed Dating site?)

    I like ’em. We’ll see what happens, but it helps to run a website that helps people find fresh, available names. 🙂

    February 5th, 2009 at 7:47 pm


    I’m glad you guys are posting about hand reg’s. We all can’t be Domain gods like Rick Schwarts or Frank Schilling so hand reg’ing is a domaining staple for those who started after 2002.

    Here are some of my fresh hand reg’s: (Bowie is a city) ($8 cpc on google)

    I taught my college student cousin some tricks of the trade this past week and he hand reg’ed (his very first domain!):

    This is the greatest business ever and I regret not being openminded to seeing the opportunity when I myself was a college student in the mid to late 90s!

    February 5th, 2009 at 8:59 pm


    Some recent names we purchased on the drop for less than $70…

    February 5th, 2009 at 10:47 pm


    The majority of my domains are hand registered, below are some of the ones that I’ve got in the past few weeks. (You can see the rest on my website.)

    Spam deleted – sorry.

    February 6th, 2009 at 3:31 am

    I think these are some nice registrations Elliot – I think they are so many great domains out there still in .com .net and .org available to register.

    Spam deleted – sorry.

    February 6th, 2009 at 6:14 am


    My latest reggs were: (Albanian for “articles”) (Albanian for “cheers”) (Albanian for “coast”)

    there was some more but I just cannot seem to remember them right now lol

    btw Elliot seems to be the best one there from my point of view! Nice buy!

    February 6th, 2009 at 7:54 am


    Elliot I didn’t mean to spam your site, when I said “ minimum offer considered for each domain: $50k “ that was meant as a little humor since we all have very high expectations for our newly hand-regged domains. (that’s why I put a little smiley face after that comment.)

    February 6th, 2009 at 9:46 am

      Elliot Silver

      @ Ojohn – You are right. I had just woken up and someone else had spammed right before you, and I saw your “minimum offer…” and deleted it without realizing the tongue in cheek nature. My bad and sorry.

    All domain is medium value for me, but

    is zero for me.

    BTW, this my latest handreg:

    February 6th, 2009 at 10:23 am

    Not intended as spam – Elliot just letting people know there are great domains out there available for Reg Fee similar to your domains that you hand registered but I can see how this might have been seen as spam.



    February 6th, 2009 at 10:27 am


    @LittleDevil is a fantastic name! Congrats! That was a NameJet exclusive expiring name on Jan 15th… did they let that drop without going to PendingDelete?

    February 6th, 2009 at 11:28 am


    @Jason – thanks

    Actually, we were the only bidder on the name on the “Backorder by Date”, so the name was transferred to us instead of going to auction. It was a great find, that others just seemed to overlook on NameJet. It’s a great product name since “Snap” and “Slap” Bracelets are popular with kids, but they typically only sell for less than a dollar, so not sure what to do with the name yet.

    February 6th, 2009 at 11:51 am

    Elliot Silver

    @Little Devil Can you innovate and create unique snap bracelets that cost more than $1.00? Maybe you can add unique materials or designs.

    February 6th, 2009 at 11:58 am


    @Elliot – Great idea! Didn’t even think of that.. I guess like the venture, we could do something on a smaller scale with “Snap Bracelets”. I like the idea of offering unique materials and designs over a $1.00.

    Thanks for the suggestion

    February 6th, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    @Little Devil

    Just be careful… from Wikipedia:

    “The bracelet was banned in several schools following reports of injuries stemming from improper use”

    Fun post -seeing everyone’s names.

    Elliot, I love your names. My favorites: CigarEnthusiasts, HeatingOilDelivery, and DeepSeaFishingTour. Had no clue what a Koozie was but now that I do I see the potential!
    Wonder what I dreaming about when I registered these:

    My dream probably won’t happen with these but it is fun trying!

    : )

    February 6th, 2009 at 3:00 pm



    I think you have done a pretty good job.

    My Fav. is

    I dont usualy do to much snapping or handregister.
    But did make a few handregistrations in the past months.

    So, if you have time to explore around there are opportunities.

    February 6th, 2009 at 4:48 pm



    I like;cause it is generic. But where did and gone? They were in your list and they arent anymore??

    Btw some of my handregs are:

    Elliot, your post today about ‘Web TV’ led me to reg another name –

    Thanks. (I hope!)

    Could you please remove or change my comment above. I accidently wrote my email instead of my name and I don’t want my email to stand there because of obvious reasons like spam or e-mail collectors etc.
    Thanks in advance.

    This all looks very interesting!…2009 and people are still finding these names!!

    I’ve speculated a bit on a few non .COMs, such as and

    Is there really good money to be made?…and the big question…HOW?

    Do you make money off your .COMs?
