Mike Mann’s Latest Domain Acquisitions & Sales (AnimalsUnited .com, GotBoobs .com, StopTheHate .org)

Here is a look at some of Mike Mann’s domain acquisitions and sales from the last month or so. Mike Mann is the owner of DomainMarket.com that offers more than 250,000 premium domain names for sale.

A few of Mike’s quotes about New gTLDs and .com domains:

Its a terrible idea to use or “invest” in a new gTLD domain name extension instead of .Com, you would waste time and money, possibly diluting and confusing your branding, and eventually need to fly back to quality. Com is king and will remain. The best marketers in the US all use .Com, 500/500 Fortune 500 companies.

Expecting lots of big .Com sales now that serious marketers are coming to their senses and giving up on new gTLD domain extensions.

New domain extensions report: All the gTLDs combined are dwarfed by live .Com web sites. And the sites and emails that exist with these confusing new domain extensions are mostly hackers or spammers, or just domain speculators, very few serious decent size businesses using them in valid commerce. That whole idea of new TLDs being used instead of .Com is toast. Move on. Only invest in serious premium .Com domains for your business needs. ICANN plus a few others cashed in. Consumers and speculators lost.

If you are preparing to build a web site on a new gTLD domain extension, don’t do it, as it has an extraordinarily high chance of failure, even more than an ordinary risky internet project using a great .Com domain. Give yourself a fighting chance with a super premium .Com domain that will go up in value and be easy to spell and remember and brand around.

And this is what he thinks about Estibot that I totally agree with:

The main tool domain “experts” use in appraising premium .Com domains is called Estibot, which usually dramatically deflates the value of a domain. I sell domains constantly for 10, 20 or even $50,000 that they value in the hundreds, and everything I sell I think is too cheap, often discounted. Other famous domain companies have internal tools to appraise domains that are completely useless also, like Estibot.

  2. Mike is the MAN!!!

    He knows what he is doing compare to

    Those bloggers at DShame-they are loonies and fakers.
    They like to pimp their worthless domains for sale.

  3. He has 300K domains, with the majority at fixed prices, it is an odds game, some of those fixed prices get filled from time to time.

    As stated above with a lack of parking income, and a sales staff, and renewal fees, he has to make serious cashflow just to break even.

    About $200K per month.

  4. Just checked the whois info of GotBoobs.com, why it is still with Mike Mann’s contact info?

  5. Mike Mann is one of the most successful and respected investors in the industry, and he’s had much of his success in .COM. However, as we — and other investors — have said and demonstrated, new gTLDs are strong bets for the investor community.

    Just in the past few weeks, for example:

    1.xyz
    9.xyz
    tube.webcam
    sex.live
    wine.club
    3d.software
    dui.attorney
    coffee.club
    autism.rocks
    transfer.money
    web.hosting
    stock.photo
    earth.works
    realestate.property
    travel.agency

    Examples of brands using not-coms for promotional sites and marketing:

    Mars Inc. for Pedigree: http://www.mixmania.dog
    Under Armour: http://www.fasttwitch.training
    General Motors’ green initiatives: http://www.generalmotors.green

    Examples of brands using not-com to ‘ring-fence’ their SEO:

    Amazon — http://www.amazon.watch, http://www.amazon.style, http://www.amazon.football, http://www.amazon.shoes.
    Jimmy Choo — http://www.choo.shoes, http://www.choo.boutique, http://www.choo.style

    Countless other examples are available at http://www.inthewild.domains.

    We doubt any of these companies or investors are “confusing” their branding. That’s a common thread perpetuated by some in the industry — particularly the self-interested Verisign. But evidence shows that’s not the case. With a 30-year head start, .COM holds a strong advantage in pure numbers, but new gTLDs will continue to offer some of the best investment opportunities going forward.

    • Hello Mason Cole,

      We strongly disagree that New GTLDs will offer even 1% of new Investment opportunities. By the way Sir What are your Cerdentials?

      We find your examples of fleeting Non .COM extensions amusing if not misleading. What are your Thirty Year proven track records of new GTLDS going to Really reveal in our Capitalist Driven Economy? We know the answers do you ?

      As to your Uneducated and undocumented assumptions : ” we — and other investors — have said and demonstrated, new gTLDs are strong bets for the investor community. ” Whats your Thirty years of documented .COM Success COMPARABLES in New GTLDS ?
      If you cannot answer this you are offering Useless Advertisers Blather.

    • Hello Mason Cole,

      your statement = ” We doubt any of these companies or investors are “confusing” their branding. ”

      Mason do you have any idea of what you are saying on the front of the stage here publicly?

      • Hello Mason Cole,

        The Google Garden Maze, devalues any and all participants sites within its Traffic Stealing shell game, that in effect exposes all Google Ad participants to massive loss of Traffic to the participants most dreaded Competitors. This Co-Mingling of .COM Brands within the Google Matrix (Adsense), creates a floating pool of Shanghaied Traffic, which Google then distributes network wide, at the expense of Google Ad supporters.
        Long story short Domain valuations are reduced for all Google participants in this ingeniously deceptive Traffic Rustling Corridor. There are Domain Valuations within the Google Traffic Trap that are much lower than the true Economic Valuations being experienced by Site Owners that bypass Google.

    • Hello Mason Cole,

      It is absolutely astounding how little Google Adsense Advertising participants really understand, about the Strategic loss of traffic their Corporate Brands are suffering. (Mind Boggling )

      Is your companies Marketing Department asleep at the switch? The inescapable truth is Google Adsense users have no choice in the matter, inside Googles Traffic Stealing Corridor, where they send 20-45% of their Brands Traffic, systematically to their competitors. This Rustled free Float of .COM Profit Centers Traffic is diverted to Google Adsense participants competitors who are often One click away on Googles Brand selection offering page. Is your companies Marketing Staff aware of this Strategic Online Marketing Gaffe?

    • Hello Mason Cole,

      In this Generic Alphabet soaked GOOGLE atmosphere, you need to differentiate your companies Brand. Its a matter of Online Business survival. Its not enough that you crave your Brands differentiation from the pack of competitors you are competing with. The Big question is how will GOOGLES Search Engine Marketing contribute to your cause?

      The Search Engine Marketing Model that Google-Centric Admen use unknowingly suckers your Business into a traffic stealing maze that, leads your Businesses Brand into a jungle or maze of never ending competitive choices in page after page of never ending choices, further Marginalizing and Diluting your businesses Brands ability to stand apart from Googles assemblage of page after page of your businesses most feared competitors, that are just one Click away on the same page as yours !

      So if you do not want to expose your online business traffic to be channeled away from you and sent to your competitors, by all means steer clear of the Google MADMEN. Its a trap that many businesses are in.

    • Hello Mason Cole,

      Search Engine Marketing, has morphed into a futile attempt to control and mitigate maximum Online Business Expansion on a Global Basis. Its goal is to Dilute corporate Brands drawing power and to control access to online businesses, through incessant Algorithm changes so as to mask Googles Rapidly expanding Utilization Capacity GAP.

      Yes this is how Google serves their Ad Base, by charging exorbitant fees as a gatekeeper employing a collusive jungle of illegal Digital Code Manipulation that blocks the pathway to Online Businesses. Sound Sinister ? Yes , Is it going to be allowed forever ? NO

      All Domain Name System Hierarchy Extension owners. Make no Mistake about it that the real threat to DNS Hierarchy comes from Googles assault to destabilize the whole DNSs Nuetrality, through deceptive Anti-competitive Digital Code Manipulation within their Monopolistic Garden Maze of twisted Digital code designed to mitigate and block the finding of Online companies according to fair and free market standards.

      The Era of SEO Manipulated Search Engine Marketing is waning and giving way to recycling back to identifiable and meaningfull Online Business Names. Early in The SEO Manipulated search Engine Era a name like Google or yahoo or aviya or ————- were able to be found through Search Engine Marketing because the channels for doing so were functional to a limited degree.

      Now to cover up the SEM Models inadequacy in facilitating business expansion GOOGLE WHO IS Emulated by others who subcribe to the SEM Model , are incessantly adding ALGO Changes, to cover up the Cache 22 Enigma Fantasy of finding Online Businesses through the Highly obsolesced Search Engine Model of Marketing Online. The Google Search Engine alone has the data of 30 trillion Unique websites, dumped into its massively overloaded data base, causing a tremendously dysfunctional process. The Google Search Engine Process for finding anyones Online Business is called (Marketing Saturation Obsolescence) http://www.businessinsider.com/500m-things-google-has-never-heard-of-2013-5#ixzz2TK2lnz1R

      The future holds nothing but more Market saturating dumps of Bastardized and manipulated data to the already overloaded Search Engine Model, increasing its already Dysfunctional ( SEM )Marketing Platform. Now Add to this already inefficient Business Locating (SEM) Model , additional new Hordes of new Quasi-derivative Obsolesence gTLDs and you have a formula to mask Googles glaring Anti-Competitive Stranglehold on standing in the way of Maximum Online Business Expansion. You can see why the E.U. is pursuing Anti-Competition Charges.

    • Hi Mason,
      only 1 or 2 from the domains you mentioned were sold by an investor. (and these sales are not from the the past few weeks)

      Please stop the “not-com” campaign. I know your CEO loves it but it is hurting the whole industry.
      Thanks

      • Hello Konstantinos,

    • Hello Mason Cole,

      In answer to your statement = ” With a 30-year head start, .COM holds a strong advantage in pure numbers, but new gTLDs will continue to offer some of the best investment opportunities going forward. ”

      Our professional analysis is predicting that the new TLDs and New gTLDs will be fleeting Flashes in the pan, with no fundamental reasons for them even being Economically useful for even being around, for another 5 years.

You probably well know that there will be a Massive move into the Superior .COM Profit Centers ,over the next five years. What ? You say your not aware of this ? We are here to tell you its an Economic Certainty. Think you know more than us ? Good Luck ! Doubt us ? You better check our track record.
