    Are dictionary word domains all they're cracked up to be? Although rare to find unregistered in the .com form, there are still some out there. Indeed, I stumbled across one this evening.
    May question is how valuable can a domain be if the single dictionary word is very specific.

    for example (this one is registered), how desireable would something like arsenious.com be? Would it be worth the reg fee cos it certainly wouldnt get any traffic.

    There are also many more .co.uk dictionary domains still unregistered.

    Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    Arsenious.com wouldn't have any value, there are a fair few dictionary words going on ebay for a couple of quid or so. But then again the old saying, something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

    As a general rule, verbs are more valuable than nouns. Unless the word is in a high competition market niche or has other links to more famous brands, dictionary words tend to be very overrated. If you notice, most of the good brands are combinations of words. There is even a company that founded this whole business of creating names for brands - Namelabs. It might be worth looking at how they do things.
