ItalianPhrases.co.uk low £xxx
rest not too clever imo
Don't hold resale value as terms - just nonsense capture
Mind you Egynaecology brings pictures to mind - just cant imagine women trusting it myself
On a related note germanphrases.co.uk dropped in the last week and is FTR, 2400 exacts, low competition, got to be worth more than reg fee to someone.....the org.uk has a reasonable site on it....not taking myself as I'm trying not to register any more domains at the mo but someone here might want it I guess....
Thanks for all the opinions.
Is that based on domain investors/resellers outlook or end user outlooks?
I'm happy to hang on and put the effort in to find an end user, and of course I'm aware that end user prices depend on whatever the individual believes its worth, but how would you guys rate these terms on your average potential end user in these fields? (or does one not exist? I'm imagining that they don't but thought it worth asking anyhow).
So for example, how decent could something like be to a forex company/tips & blogs to sale conversion sites/trading platforms etc be? I feel it would be a quality brand, nice and easy to pronounce and bounces well off the tongue...
Yeah I can see the gynaecology ones being a bit off key, but they're not exactly crude or whatnot...
Would these be worth developing given the numbers of exacts that are up for grabs?
Lots of questions, sorry, your time is very much appreciated though
Thanks for taking the criticism in the right spirit. The trouble with the domain resale market (as opposed to development) is that the domain really does have to hold qualities that either appeal far beyond that of a domainer ( the marketing dream) or really is' best' of the second best to domains that would otherwise be so far out of reach (cost wise)
you want to avoid words or terms that don't add anything.
by example lets take the simple word "Red" theres lots of words that spring to mind that you could prefix or suffix it with but only certain pairings 'add' or 'convey' something more than the simple colour, and of course appeal. Then of course you want that appeal to have as many end users as possible. WE accept that " Red.com" is way out of reach
so 'red1.com' works so much better than say "redone.com" which is actually open to all sorts of interpretations.
Now obviously the buyer for the first domain is out there (red1.com) any day of the week
There are those here that work strickly on 'exacts' - i'm not able to help you on that area it's not something i work with unless by chance
I take your point about "ForexExec.com" (as your example) but lets step it down to how a market Exec is going to work. He is going to look for every "worst" scenario first before he/she moves into qualities - and in most cases dosent even bother looking at the plus side if the downside is there
Now look it as "forexexec" (all lower case) it dosen't justify anywhere near its" implied use" with that sort of" confusing to type" qualities - then again some one may buy it thats why domaining is not an exact science. (i'm going to add I misspelt it several times in compling this post alone) I would hold the domain but certainly not expect a buyer to come knocking
Thanks for the nice acknowledegment. Now we have to look at what the market really wants ? And the difficulty here for many is accepting the "comparatively" limited scope for .co.uks, particulary those words/terms that don't hold obvious 'generic' merit
Working from your later examples -'"bookus" would work but really only has potential to sell as a .com, it's too contrived to work/sell as a couk. And don't forget, once your working in the area of "contrived -terms" there's a whole new area of existing trademarks, prior usage etc to be both aware of.
I'm not trying to put you off domaining - enthusiasm is makes the whole thing 90% fun/enjoyable and really only 10% work.
Be aware of falling into the old mistake of coming -up with a term and the trying to think of a usage/application. Far better to think of a market (hopefully a bloody big one) and then coming up with the best term. The end user/buyers will like you - trust me
