Any estimates on the value of this name?
not sure how to value this one...opinions welcomed
Is there an average sale price resource for dictionary words over here?
There isn't an "average price formula" that you can apply to dictionary words - some are desirable, some not so. Yours clearly falls into the latter. It might have some legs as a "board game" type name but, that really is clutching at straws.
If it was listed for an 'immediate' sale I doubt it would attract offers above low £xx. It's the sort of domain that I would be tempted to leave up at somewhere like Sedo for offers and forget about.
Can't see it selling personally, sorry.
I see your point and to understand this a little more .. would you agree the word "defiance" would fall in the same category like "concede" accept that it has more searches and just like 'concede" no active product to make it appealing to buyer.
And considering today's reported sale of defiance.com for $90,000 would I be correct in assuming the owner got lucky as an end user did materalise for it but otherwise the name falls in the same category as "concede".
(For the purpose of this discussion do ignore the fact that it is a .com, understand the value .com brings to the table but this discussion for now is more about the category the word "defiance" sits in)
Thanks again for your inputs
They are not in the same category, really. If you view the domain through a buyers eyes then 'defiance' is powerful where as 'concede' has a lot of negative connotations.
In that respect they have very little in common. - Defiance is defined as ' Open resistance; bold disobedience'. Concede means 'Admit that something is true or valid after first denying or resisting it.
As to price, put it this way. If you can afford to gamble £2.99 + vat each year its worth keeping, (you might get lucky) but you may wait for years and never find a buyer.
It's good that your switching on your analytical mind DBS The previous poster has pretty much summed up why the two "words" you've quoted are Poles apart. (literally and value)
I think most domainers would agree that $90K for the 'defiance' domain is a nice sale for the seller. domains are about maximising those opportunities to capture a sale of that magnitude - that wont happen with words that don't have the right connotations.
incidently I actually have the dictionary plural "connotations.couk" probably registered after a good few glasses of scotch and an extremly healthy bank balance at the time. I'd put it in the same ballpark as your "concede" domain next to zero. So looks like we are both hoping for a 'board game manufacturer" on these ones
Thanks RSK it makes perfect sense.
Also like your strategy on product domains.
Thanks Bailey, again great advise.
As for connotations.co.uk atleast you had a few good pegs before registering it while I was very much in my senses :roll:
Cant imagine what I would register if I had a few.
May be concede-connotations.co.uk , high value dictionary words, with an excellent hyphen to make it easier for users to read.
Ok back to the research.
I can't think of many uses for it. It might be best to try to brainstorm and actually use it yourself for a project.
Separate names with a comma.
