    Please rate some of my domains. Some of them may not be great but I'm still learning! I will add the rest of the names (about 7) soon as I've only just registered the .com for them and still to register the .co.uk !

    Thanks for your help :)

    ASIANBREAKS.COM
    AUSTRALIANBREAKS.COM
    AFRICABREAKS.COM
    AFRICANBREAKS.COM
    CLEANITCLEAN.CO.UK
    QUIRKYALONE.CO.UK
    SHOWMANCE.CO.UK


    Am I on the right track???

    I'm relatively new to all this myself, so I'd rather not give advice on the domains you've registered, but what I would say is read as much as you can on here and similar forums before you register any more.

    The more background knowledge you can get, the better.

    I'd also recommend George Marshall's 'Get Out While You Can' book which you can buy on Amazon.

    Hope this is of some help.

    I think it depends on your goals. Are you looking to resell domains, or are you looking for domain names to develop.

    The majority of domain names have no value and will never sell.
    Assume that anything you pick is never going to sell either.
    So pick domains you can keep and develop.

    OK, since you asked:

    ASIANBREAKS.COM - Brandable travel, but still difficult to sell, fine for aff site but rather general

    AUSTRALIANBREAKS.COM - Brandable travel, but still difficult to sell, good for aff site

    AFRICABREAKS.COM - Sell with AfricanBreaks.com, useful to have if trying to sell the better domain africanbreaks.com

    AFRICANBREAKS.COM - Brandable travel, but still difficult to sell, fine for aff site but rather general

    CLEANITCLEAN.CO.UK - Some brandability, extremely difficult to sell

    QUIRKYALONE.CO.UK - Don't get this one, very unlikely to have value

    SHOWMANCE.CO.UK - Don't get this one, very unlikely to have value

    Are you on the right track? Well, if I were you, I would ban myself from regging new domains until I had done a lot more homework. Start at dnjournal.com / domainsherpa.com. Domains are a great opportunity because in theory they can be bought low and sold high. In practice, you need very good domains to make it work. Don't be seduced by thinking it's easy, and remember, buying is simple, selling is really hard.

    Good luck.

    Not sure how much any long-named domain has, in terms of value (in the name itself). More likely to be able to monetize it through developing a web site on it, preferable highly ranked, then try to sell the site+traffic to someone else.

    Thank you for the very helpful advice and response. Just need to do a bit more research before I continue I guess!

    ASIANBREAKS.COM - Brandable and good for an aff site

    AUSTRALIANBREAKS.COM - Brandable and good for an aff site

    AFRICABREAKS.COM - Brandable and good for an aff site

    AFRICANBREAKS.COM - Brandable and good for an aff site

    CLEANITCLEAN.CO.UK -Don't like it, reminds me of jobisjob.co.uk which I also don'tlike ! no value

    QUIRKYALONE.CO.UK - Say what ? no value

    SHOWMANCE.CO.UK - Is this to do with romance or something ? no value

    The thing is people say holiday when it comes to places out of europe, breaks are only for a few days and it's refered to more as Australia than Australian.
