I think I really need to study what names are and aren't worth anything because if someone offered me pensionreview for the reg fee I would have said no thanks.
This is precisely what I love about the domain name business. I'm constantly surprised and/or completely disgusted by the prices that some domains sell for. It keeps me on my toes and reminds me that I do not and will not ever know everything!
That's why new domainers buy rubbish, it becomes a just incase thing.
And when they look back on what they bought they cringe.
The truth is you never know what might push someone's button but you can narrow the odds down by size of industry and number of permutations of the subject domain.
Without experience it is very challenging.
What might help is to try to put yourself in the position of the defined end user.
Quintessential Finance Group bought this, and I'm sure they'll make good use of it in the pensions sector and soon get their initial outlay back.
Id would like to think I can tell what's worth something if it's glaringly obvious, like single word brandables for instance, recently names like cosmic and linked I would have loved to get.
Also I seem to be constantly looking at the whois for expiring domains owned by "A Hugh", and from what I can tell if he has them I assume they're worth something.
should not be difficult to recoup 3k
I think the inherent value of a quality domain is massively undervalued, because potential end users are confused through inexperienced advice. When you think of the amount that is spent in other areas while most scrimp on the most important part, the domain name, and now the industry, because of the big g thing, are spreading the message that emd's have no valuew when really, quality product and industry exact match domains are more valuable than ever.
So the knowledgeable get richer.
Just because someone owns a lot of domains, does not mean they are all of worth
Well identifying those two wasn't exactly rocket science, was it ?
lol Indeed, but those are the type of things I would hope to get (very unlikely or not), rather than registering a lot of things on the off change they might be worth something.
Oh no I know, but australian, recycled, closely etc are nice enough.
Separate names with a comma.
