what do you think?
Not a lot
Name would only be good if someone wanted to be called grid.
Otherwise useless and worth the reg fee.
I think its an excellent name.
Good because it is the generic category descriptor.
It is a high worth product/service too which is neat.
It would be a good information site, and you could sell computer time from it.
It doesn't have a whole load of consumer searches attached to it, but does have some high worth business to business ads listed against the google search.
That I think probably limits its value a little (not much traffic potential) but hopefully it would be offset by some fairly hefty commission cheques if you could swing an arrangement or two by some of the bigger players.
A bit too much work for your average domainer me thinks, but a good domain for the end buyer all the same.
x,xxx to good end buyer.
Me being me, I totally have to disagree with you I've done searches for computing and I've found a co.uk and a dot com and I only tried once.
Just put any name in front of computing its easy enough to do and only worth a fiver.
Only use it has is from a company calling themselves grid the dot com is registered in Australia.
There are thousands of words that you can put in front of computing too make it seem reasonably good.
Deffinatly not one for me even at a fiver
I'm sure you could put lots of things in front of computing, but they wouldn't spell gridcomputing!
It's just my opinion and will be tempered by others I'm sure.
Lets pull one example as I dont want the domain name
ardvarkcomputing.co.uk and dot com available
brakefastcomputing.co.uk and dot com
chargecomputing.co.uk and dot com
deviouscomputing.co.uk and dot com
elephantcomputing.co.uk and dot com
there just random words picked and put in front of computing, and took me two seconds.
So if I can do that within two seconds, I could go all the way to Z but I can only goto h, were learning I J and K next week in class.
Its a pile of dogs testicles being honest
I think this has been registered because its an emerging technology, not just some random word stuck in front of 'computing' :
except I don't see Hewlett Packard advertising in google for dogstesticlescomputing but they certainly are (as well as a whole load of others) under grid computing.
edit: you beat me with a much more helpful post :mrgreen:
.....And with every other decent extension taken I'd say its a good £5 investment and definately not 'a pile of dogs testicles'..............
Ok so its in Wilkipedia so technically this will increase the value but...
A lot of computer users unless they are techno nerds wouldnt know about grid computing so in respects unless you had a techno geek with big pockets its just a name, speaking of which how did you know about grid computing
I read a bit about what it was saying about grid computing and reasonably fell asleep and didnt even understand what it is.
Looking at it again its sort of like a network that uses processing from computers around the World such as S.E.T.I.
It might have some value in the future IF grid computing becomes a common buzz word at the moment people would just look at gridcomputing.co.uk and think just a shop name.
So its probaly worth more than a fiver after all but only to techno geeks.
Separate names with a comma.
