Mike Mann Registered 11,000 New Domain Names Yesterday

I’ve been following Mike Mann’s Facebook page where yesterday he said he wound  up registering almost 11,000 domain names.

The Facebook post started off by saying that Mike registered 4,793 domain names, at the next update the number of registrations hit 6,640 and by the end of yesterday Mike had registered “almost 11,000 domains”

The 11,000 domain names were compiled from an ongoing list of domain names he has been working on for a while:

“Almost 11,000 names registered Tuesday from pending list I had built up.”

For Mike who has been in the business since the 1990′s,  it was a personal one day record for the most number of domains registered in one day.

All of Mike Mann domain names including the ones registered yesterday are on DomainMarket.com

    Newbie domainers, please check with your doctor before attempting such a feat.

    I would imagine one must build train considerably. Start small, 100, then 500, when you get your groove and feel comfortable see if you can do 1000. Keep building your endurance over time.

    Could possibly be a blanket of Geo’s, or Zip Codes, or popular number ending. Has to be some theme to it, take into account 75,000 domains drop a day, really just a drop in the bucket. These automated pre expiry brokers, and spammy end user discount marketers are really working against us. They basically send a message: domains are a dime, a dozen, and can be had for less than what the average domainer expects for them.

    All being potential end users rank anyone direct selling a domain as the lowest common denominator. You will all feel your domain sales being down, as these people are reaching your target audience before they have a chance to even consider your domain, or make other offers.

    There maybe more domain sales in the marketplace, but seems to be a push back from end users on pricing above $2k…

  3. Mark says

    Like all small men, Michael Mann’s grandiose behavior is once again noted. I am not impressed, nor do I condone his outrageous price gouging practices. Anyone who pays a little over $200.00 for an expired domain name at auction and then turns around and tries selling it the following week for $100,000 is sociopathic. Am I the only one here who also wonders why his international country domain names have never sold? In my opinion, Michael Mann hides behind Grassroots.org, and in reality he is nothing more than a selfish little man who seems to enjoy holding back the reigns of global commerce. If Michael really cared about microfinancing action, he would be much more philanthropic in deeds.

    I wonder what these domains were mostly about.
    The highest number of domain I have bought in one day is 30 but I develop 80% of domains I buy so it’s still a great number for me.

  7. Ron says

    @ G Ariyas

    Criticism isn’t always a bad thing, as long as it is warranted, and done tastefully.

    Not sure why anyone would be jealous, I have seen the list of names registered, and they are ones anyone of us would pass up everyday. The domains require work, they require emailing, and following up with potential end users, or soon to be end users. It is no different than going to a casino, just rolling the dice, and hoping you can make enough money before you luck runs out.

    Same thing here, spend 100k on domains, spam the heck of them, try to make your $100k+cost+profit back before renewal time, or your toast.

    I think most end users are going to put extensive opt in emails, or spam blockers into place, I have a 2-3 different companies spamming me on a daily basis, after I have asked to be removed.

    Here is a sample of some of the domains registered:

    maandamano.com
    macane.com
    magicmaidservices.com
    magulang.com
    maidshouse.com
    mainstreetstyling.com
    managementoffices.com

  8. John says

    Would be interesting to know how many were 1 and 2 word .com’s.
    What’s also interesting is that you said it was an ongoing list
    Would be curious to know how many of his ongoing list were taken when he decided to register them all at once (i.e. was his list 15000 names?)
    Definitely, still plenty of .com names available for hand regs
    Just need to put the work in and be willing to speculate

  9. Anon says

    For the domaining world, I would say this achievement can be compared to Wilt Chamberlain dropping 100 in a single game.
    ——–

    That’s a great example of a totally failed mentality.

    There is no achievement in acquiring domain names.
    The achievement comes when you turn a profit from those domains- parking, development, resale, whatever your strategy may be.

    Owning domain names means nothing. Making money owning domain names is what matters.

    He just registered 11,000+ domain names, meaning he just took on a $90,000 annual nut.
    At a 1% sell-through rate, he needs to average $820 per to remain black, exclusive of parking. Seems easy enough, but it isn’t. Volume doesn’t guarantee anything but Mike Mann is a highly experienced domain speculator, so the playing field looks quite different to him than it will to Mr. “3d Is My Life”.

  10. 3D is my life says

    Word is that Mann burned through 3 PCs in this record breaking effort. Associates pleaded for him not to push himself too hard. He didn’t listen to them and summoned courage akin to that displayed by Jordan in the epic 1997 “Flu Game” against the Jazz. And when it was over, he had to be helped up from his PC by these friends. They all knew they had just seen something special.

  11. Les Class says

    The list of names is readily available to view. The names are unadulterated garbage. Two worders is nothing, he has some 4 and 5 worders in there

    @3D

    The NBA has become a boring product, this has nothing to do with Wilt, or Jordan.

    This is someone making a calculated bet, they can sell xxx amount of domains for xxx amount of dollars, and see if they can make a profit. $100K is a drop in the bucket for this person, so most likely it is more of an experiment, this has nothing to do with being a superstar in the NBA, stupidest thing I ever heard of your analogies. Sorry, it has to be said…

    MHB,
    I think most men would love to have been in his shoes, or maybe his middle finger. I think if it is true, he makes Ron Jeremy look like an amateur ;)

  15. says

    We eventually did 13,140 domains yesterday, a lot of scraps but tons of gems that will pay out in spades. Presumably you see my daily sales and are sick of me proving you all wrong all the time.

  16. says

    The whole batch of 13,000 cost about 100K. 10% of those names start with letter A including below. So is this group worth $10,000? Then you will know if this is a good investment overall. Also I am not claiming this is my best investment, just clean up work that will be somewhat profitable in the long run.

    Everyone plays the game different. I will say this reminds me of me of when all these guys came into options trading and had their computers do all the trading for them. The other guys told them they were going to lose their ass because a good trader would kill their programs. Now the computers are the commonplace and the human traders are the minority. Many different ways to make money, even in domain buying and selling.

    I will also add in a person that always has to prove themselves is either always pushing boundaries and doing things different or very insecure.

  18. says

    yesterday was last day to file irs tax, and I wonder mike was not willing to pay 100k back to the irs, instead he took that in to investment, or loss, or investment with no profit.

    Smart Move MIKE!

  19. says

    @elliot.
    I agree with you 100%.

    @GENE.

    Go spend 100k on hand reg ..come back to defend inly if u have profit.
    Dont take mike as a winner here. Because mike has deep pockets n they do crazy yhings as such when there is irs etc payback time to govt.
    also lot of othet factors.

    Show me one newbie prrson who been duccessful from their hand teg today.

  20. says

    SO, in the end this is a no brainer..

    Does one give 100k to the Tax man or indulge it on the domain industry.

    Personally I could think of better ways to spend it. The problem is it had to be spent quickly and by buying domains, the odds are probably better than the lottery.

    To be honest though, I doubt very much MM or anyone else with a winning recipe is going to be putting it our on here… I suspect I know what he is up to, but don’t have the cashflow or time to indulge my suspicions….

  21. says

    @ jin

    I wasn’t taking any sides between people (Elliot vs. Mike) in my comments, but only defending against the constant stream of articles that we’re all read over the years by bloggers who love to warn everyone against the evils of hand-registrations.

    I have no problem with reading the “be careful to not overdue it…” pieces (because, frankly, not everyone has great instincts, or has travelled the painful learning curves required). But when you see the posts make blanket statements about the stupidity of not having the bulk of your investments made in the aftermarket, I get very suspicious. That type of ‘advice’ should be directed toward end-users/buyers, not domainers.

    And as far as hand-registrations are concerned…I would NOT advise folks to randomnly select 3 & 4 keyword names (…that ‘are still available’). My (personal) style is to corner a particular niche, particularly in the future tech realm, which is a strategy that requires lots of patience, fairly deep pockets, and about 6 hours per day of research. If, instead, you prefer to flip names, then you probably should stay away from hand-registering names, in general. Pony up the $2K or $3K for a ‘decent’ name, and cross your fingers that it works out…just like the domainer/seller tells you that it will.

  22. says

    The only thing happening here is good quality investing despite high risk, but keep in mind Ive sold more domains than anyone, and built and sold more companies, so its a little less risky than it may appear, and this is actually charity work if you were to pay any attention for once. http://www.mikemann.com

    africangroceries.com
    Brilliant. Sheer brilliance.
    Temp those who are starving with grocery names.
    The Mann is a genius.
    What is an africangrocery though?
    ANyways big props to Mike you da Mann, as a result of this thread I have gone out and registered all available similar (continenet)grocery.com names
    SouthAmericanGroceries.com
    AsiaGroceries.com
    AntarcticaGroceries.com
    Thanks for the insight!

  24. says

    OK here’s a deal:

    I have 2,000 domains, some very unique ones.

    I am willing to average the price to 150 USD per domain… (many are worth x,xxx or more)

    So you can have my entire portfolio for 300K ! Bargain….!

    Bet you Mikie would take that deal on his 13k domains today! I would…

  25. Son of Spam says

    My thought is this. When I look at Dnjournal (I have been a domainer for 6 years) Easily 40% of the sales is compost. i wouldn’t back over them to save my life! So ANYONE that says people don’t buy “weak to weaker”including that one guy “the swartzee” shit is UTTERLY AND DAMNDABLY WAY WRONG! Go ahead ask little to nothing ask big for the “has potentials”. Personally anybody that moves domains i don’t make eye contact with I’m scared they will see me for what I truly am a filthy purveyor of domain smut that i have yet to move. You might even catch me in the bathroom “day dreaming” of a 20K sale in one year. Usually I wash up afterword. Hat’s off Daddy Mike I won’t speak unless spoken to.

  26. says

    @mike
    Thanks i totally was confused on the years. So my apilogy.

    Its not i doubt mike mann he is very successful. He knows what he is doing i bet.

    I personally pick elliot advice on investing if i was started domaining today.

    Thanks all

  27. says

    More from the list 13K list for you to appraise. Once you have average value per name you can figure out if I got a good deal:
