    What are your thoughts on regal. uk? What range can I expect for it?
    I suspect it will be worth a lot more a few years from now.

    £102.49 according to GoDaddy appraisal. £3977.31 according to Estibot appraisal. lol. I think it's a nice name, you'd be right to hold on to it. Pop it on DAN and see what offers you get over the next year or so.

    Yeah, wtf is GoDaddy's appraisal tool good for!? o_O
    I tried a few domains and got some really stupid values:
    royal.uk Estimated Value: $411 (USD)
    bbc.uk Estimated Value: $897 (USD)
    google.uk Estimated Value: $1,240 (USD)
    amazon.uk Estimated Value: $3,125 (USD)
    ebay.uk Estimated Value: $591 (USD)

    I don't know mate, but I would imagine using trademarked names like that has some negative effects on the appraisal. Try with random catches from your portfolio. But I agree, it's been useless for me. But Estibot seems too farfetched also. I'd love to find a happy in-between that takes other factors into account. Estibot is good because if the name is trademarked it usually shows up $0 and lets you know it's trademarked. Not sure if this is just for heavily trademarked names/most popular, but it's a good idea. It also takes into account the search volume. It would be good if it also took into account ay past sales, Like GoDaddy does (how true these are, is anybody's guess). Though GoDaddy maxes out at $25000. Anything more and it just says "more than $25000" which is pretty useless. I'd like to see an appraisal tool integrated with @seemly sale price tool, that'd be nice.

    Probably low-mid xxx on DL

    x,xxx to an end user - at least that's what I'd ask for if I had it and was contacted

    I guess the only problem is regal is an adjective and most companies are called Regal *something* rather than regal on its own but still a nice name

    This is such a huge feature that I don't think could be automated, and the values would be very subjective.
    There is no definitive way of defining a true premium or its value. Ultimately a domain is worth whatever a buyer is willing to pay for it. If you have more than one interested party, that value grows exponentially.
    1. I could add a form on individual domains that account holders could vote whether the domain sale price should have been higher, lower or if it was about right. I would need a way of limiting submissions to be unique per domain per user, and maybe only for a specific tier of member. This would allow a domain value to average out over time, but this would need some serious legitimate traffic and user interaction over 16k+ records which just isn't viable.
    2. Domain sale prices can be so sporadic anyway. Shit domains getting unfathomably high sale prices, whereas if you're in the right place at the right time some higher end domains have sold at prices that could and should have been considerably higher.
    I don't really think that an "accurate" appraisal tool could be made. Not by me anyway as I don't have the nouse or the desire.

    It does sound like a great idea in theory, but I wouldn't want to take the barrage of negative comments when it inevitably provides results people don't agree with.
