We’ve just published a new feature on Generic Domain Finder – filtered lists of expiring domain names from GoDaddy and NameJet PreRelease auctions.
As a domainer, it’s always been a struggle to keep up with the vast number of domains that expire every single day. It’s possible to spend countless hours a day sifting through the tens of thousands of domains that expire daily. It’s also a mind numbing process, as many of the domains are truly worthless.
At Generic Domain Finder, we realized this was a problem in need of a solution. We’ve developed a special high speed version of our domain appraisal technology to identify domain names containing keywords that are commonly searched. This includes a system to identify keywords embedded in domain names. Next, we check to see whether or not those keywords have any interest from advertisers or not. Finally, we check the actual properties of the domain, such as the extension (COM, NET, and ORG for now), the length, the number of words, etc to come up with a best guess of it’s estimated value.
We hope this will become a valuable tool for domainers are serious about building a strong portfolio of generic domains.
In addition to pre-filtering the auctions, here are some of the other features that we think will be useful for serious domainers:
The domain keywords link to Google, to help research the domain
The domain name itself links directly to the auction, so you can place a bid right away. The keywords link directly to Google, so you can better understand what the domain is about. This can be extremely useful for foreign language domains, or domains related to a specific geographic area.
Powerful filters to find the best domains
There are options to filter based on the number of keywords in the domain, the number of characters in the domain, the extension (COM, NET, and ORG for now), as well as the automatically appraised value.
One of the most powerful filters is whether the domain has bids or not. For NameJet PreRelease auctions, if you’re the only bidder, you’ll automatically win the domain, without it being sent to auction. By filtering for the best domains without bids, it’s possible to uncover some great deals.
