    Appraisal for ahotcup.com & .co.uk names

    Hi all

    I've been pointed in the direction of this forum as the place to come for help and advice.

    I've been asked for a price on a domain I have just listed on Sedo. The name is ahotcup.com. I bought it for tea/coffee affiliate programmes but haven't got round to developing it.

    I got a free appraisal from swiftappraisal.com, telling me it was worth between £3700 and £5300 which I cannot believe.

    I would be most grateful for some advice please as I have never sold a domain before. Anyone tell me if they think it's worth £10's, £100's or £1000's or nothing but the renewal cost.

    Thanks in advance.

    Andy

    Welcome to the forum...

    Sadly, it looks like you have fallen for one of the oldest tricks in the book... 'Paid appraisals'...
    Not saying all are bad, but this one doesn't look right at all to me...
    Something that I think your aware of as your still asking so to speak...

    To be honest, IMO and it's just my opinion, you would have done better with ahotcuppa...
    The one you have doesn't sound right to me at all... Maybe that was taken at the time....

    Truth is, I apologise for being harsh... especially, as it's your first post... but I'd say they have no value at all...
    Then again, I recently sold one of the worst names I'd ever registered for a huge % gain so I guess, even with these, you could get lucky...

    To help you, look around the threads in the 'for sale' and 'appraisals' areas, these will give you some helpful and informative information which may well help when making your domain choices in the future... Don't worry though, we have all made similar, if not worse mistakes ourselves... We are all on a learning curve...

    JMHO

    DN, with your kind friendly demeanour, understanding tone and informative concern you should get a job in public relation's, or get yourself some children!

    Your right though, A crap name worth Bugger all! ;)

    Hi,
    Got some adult names. Not too many but being looking to develop one or two. (The research will be sheer hell! LOL :mrgreen: ) Will you be doing appraisals on Dnadult.com ? Just it's hard to to find appraisals particularly of the adult variety. Could be good? Let us know.
    Cheers, Predator :twisted:
