Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday, August 16th, 2021

Got a little busy today so I thought I would repost one of my first 5 posts from this blog. Then known as DomainPantry and quickly changed to So much history in the post. Of course its from 12 years ago. Yep. I’ve posted here every single day for 12 years. Ridiculous if you think about it

The 35 people that have come to the site saw that I started my new domain blog as  A name I picked up on a drop and a name that I thought was great.  A closet full of domain names, stored away gaining value.  Just like my old Star Wars toys (they really never became too valueable). One problem, 20 minutes into my official announcement Patrick, of, thought the name was a little too close to his DNKitchen name.  Now I like and respect Patrick. He has a nice blog and we have done business together but I didn’t change it because he asked.  I changed it because he got me to thinking.  Do you want a brand name that makes you think of someone else?  Secondly, I want to brand myself.

In the gardening world in Central IL everyone knows my name (maybe not everyone).  I am on radio and television pushing my name and my company.  When you hear one you think of the other.  I’ve built up enough reputation that when they hear my name they think of my company and gardening.  So domain pantry, as catchy a name as it was, did not promote me and may have made others think of Patrick.  When I bought the name it didn’t make me think of him for one second and by no means was I trying to feed of his popularity.  My goal is to build my own following not the coattail of someone else.  The only coat-tailing I do is developing a new brands off your already strong brands.

This little change is by no means a big deal but it IS a good story and lesson.  Create a totally unique name that can’t be confused with others and others will have trouble duplicating with an outright infringement.  Secondly if you have a personality that can be sold and promoted by all means do it.  Last but not least, what do others think about the original name?  Would it have been confusing if I had kept it?
