    Hi,

    Hypothetically speaking if www.losangeles.com or www.newyork.com were worth $250,000 how much would you imagine www.new-york.com or www.los-angeles.com would be worth.

    I can't seem to find any data to compare value of a hyphenated compared to non hyphenated. Possibly 1/10th the value???

    I'm in talks over a domain (neither the top two unfortunately!) and any insight would be very helpful at this stage.

    Thanks, Phil

    I tend to use 1/10 as a guide too.

    Go to namebio.com & enter '-' into the search field (without apostrophes) and it will list sales of hyphenated names.

    you cant use any formula of percentages. some low sales , some high. i've sold hyphenated names in the xx,xxx range.

    there are a lot of steals out there.

    using the new-york example. off top of my head new-york.info sold for about $20k i think , non-hyphenated ,double or treble i think.

    namebio is a good site anyhow, lists many of reported sales

    LOL
    Yeah, they get some stuff wrong, but its 95% correct, or better.
    They get stats from dnjournal, private sellers, dnf, sedo, afternic, auctions etc

    Its a great little resource imo

    I went ahead and bought the domain.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the advice and info.

    I eventually bought San-Jose.com.

    It is the 10th largest city in the US with a population of 900,000.

    2 days of bargaining, but worth it!
