    Put in a silly bid on slim.info on sedo just to test the water.

    An even sillier counter offer came back..... £10,000

    ok, you can argue a silly offer gets a silly response perhaps....., but what value would you put on a name like this ??

    £10,000 is way over the top but we shouldn't underestermate the popularity of good .info names... I can see plenty of potential in this name myself (I assume you want to target the dieting market Rich?)

    In any case low £xxxx would be achievable to the right person. I have a sale going through on Sedo for a four letter .info that isnt even a word for mid £xxx...

    Rich :)

    Slimming and Diet domains are big business... This one would do particularly well to a US seller...

    Provided no ban - £1k would be top whack I guess ... especially as G showing no backlinks.

    Slimming is BIG business - obesity is getting worse so more and more people looking online for the solutions.

    yeah £1k sounds like a fair price for it.

    Thin.com recently sold for $200k btw ;)

    I think this is a quality domain and will have a matching price tag. I don't think they are being that unreasonable with their counter offer - optimistic maybe at this time, but not unreasonable on a medium to long term basis.

    Based on recent sales, I'd say 1-2000...with excellent turnaround potential to an end user.

    I was surprised to see Fat.info sell for $6,000 and I'm a big fan of .info. I think Slim.info is easier on the ears and eyes than Fat.info so I can't see anybody getting this for £1,000.

    optimistic maybe at this time-but not unreasonable!


    Can't stress enough how single word urls are worth their weight
    in gold. I agree with accelerator it's as rare as guitars.info and
    in are quality commercial category. Hundreds of millions are spent
    world wide on obesity research and dieting.
    slim.info:twisted: One to watch!

    I think .info domains are picking up in value.

    Slim is a very good keyword. many are looking for information on how to become slim.

    "Slim" has Overture/mo 17749
    Wordtracker/day 1381


    I think 10K is a enduser price. For a resller it should be $3k to $5k.

    even estibot apparises it at: USD 3,400

    I've got slim.uk.com if you want a cheaper alternative?
