What about your domain name?
Last Update: May 24, 2020
If you are new to domain names, you will always have questions...
- What is a good name?
- Why is the name I want not available?
- Do I choose a Keyword name or short brand name?
- How do you value a domain?
I am sure there are many more questions.
A good place to find some answers are to look at what is happening in the market.
Let's look at Flippa, a market place for selling and buying of domain names and websites.
You can then compare and contrast your domain name (and websites too) with those being marketed and sold.
Domains Flippa likes:
Domains people paid money for:
There are only three outcomes after you compare and contrast your domain with Flippa's lists,
- You are excited and happy with your domain
- You regret buying that domain name
- You are confused
Whatever the guidelines or recommendations you follow on domain names is good practice.
However, the market is based on demand (willing buyers) and supply (willing sellers). So, the factors are not so certain as to why one domain is worth more than another.
Sometimes, the reasons for paying big money on domain have nothing to do with recommended practice. However, a short and easy to remember name with high affinity with a targeted niche is always a factor.
Other factors are luck, being in the right place at the right time when some guys with money to spend just fell in love with your domain name and must have it. Then it is time to close your big deal.
Whatever it is, ???? I hope you are happy with your domain.
Wish you a great weekend!
