My Top 10 Favorite Domain Names

32

I was talking with a friend (who isn’t in the domain business) about domain domain names, and he asked me what domain names I wish I owned and what domain names I did own that were my favorites. It wasn’t a long discussion and I gave a few off the cuff answers, but it got me thinking.

Since having the conversation a few days ago, I’ve been thinking about what domain names I wish I owned so I could develop them, and I thought I would share the list on my blog.  I would love to hear about the names you’d love to own.

Favorite Ten Domain Names I Would Love to Own to Develop:

  • Vacation.com
  • Tennis.com
  • Autographs.com
  • TelAviv.com
  • Ski.com
  • Paris.com
  • WindowTreatments.com
  • Wine.com
  • Books.com
  • Coffee.com

Favorite 10 Domain Names I’ve Ever Owned or Currently Own (not considering purchase or sale price)

  • Torah.com
  • FrenchRiviera.com
  • Customs.com
  • DebtCollectors.com
  • 887.com
  • DogWalker.com
  • Arrangements.com

    WindowTreatments.com seems a little random. Why that choice?

    True… my Dad is in that business, as was my Grandfather and Great Grandfather. I worked with my Dad in high school and sometimes in college on breaks. I knew the business pretty well.

    That’s interesting, and the choice then makes a lot of sense.

    Nice list. Most of the names would be a lifetime worth of work to develop and manage… a lifetime well spent I imagine.

    My dream domains would be generic future tech / web keywords. I actually started to write a list, but having looked it over, some of the domains may be attainable in my lifetime. I will keep them to myself for now :)

    I’d also love a premium city.com

    Elliot,

    Your list was cool. I like Paris.com the most. If I can own 10 domain names, I would want:

    scripts.com
    travel.com
    movies.com
    Games.com
    Art.com
    museums.com
    Videogames.com
    writing.com
    food.com
    cooking.com

    Elliot,

    While thinking about the top 10 domains, I noticed that you can determine what interests people through their domain wants. There is one domain I really want right now, but I can’t make an offer yet. The owner hasn’t used the domain to its fullest potential.

    Because of targeting only one area, they kept the domain from increasing in value. Using estibot or valuate, it is worth around $7500. I have many domains that also appraise for that amount and above. The monthly search results are slightly above 1,000. What is like about the domain is its name and market potential.

    What would be a fair deal to offer this owner on Sedo? I don’t want to offer something too little, but don’t want to offer too much. I don’t feel this domain is popular yet. I have plans to turn it into something major. Thanks.

    the favorite domain I ever owned was Deleted.com

    My favorite I now own is Deceivers.com

      Rory Ivey

      Do you still own deleted.com?
      Deceivers seem like a downgrade…

    jj

    I’m with you on ski.com although that is being used to full potential already. skiing.com on the other hand is just begging for the right person to develop. Out of interest, what value would yo put on skiing.com?

    May 1st, 2010 at 11:58 am

    Mikey (idealideas)

    Not sure about you -but I think skiing is a better keyword as most people, or at least I do type in skiing instead of ski when looking for products.

    I would put it pretty close to ski myself, but the appraisal bots say other wise.

    I would want:
    Sex.com
    Finance.com

    Insurance.com
    Casino.com
    Poker.com
    Loan.com
    Bank.com
    Money.com
    Porn.com

    It looks like Customs.com is a previously owned domain. Funny thing is, it must of been purchased by a super domainer as it has the pop up advertising GoodNews.com. THis was covered on another blog yesterday about GoodNews.com getting plugged on a lot of parked domains.

    I think that was a good sell. Hopefully you got a good price from the super domainer.

    I can;t think of a super profitable idea that would be worth while for that domain or development doesn’t seem FUN to me.

    Most everyones top 10 domains are taken and developed for Maximum Profit and if ever sold it would have to be a bankruptcy or a See No Profit in your lifetime type of Deal. LOL

    A lot are owned by corporations.

    TENNIS.COM is my Absolute favorite domain.

    Do you have any idea how much people spend on Tennis?
    The pros alone with all the sponsors make millions per tourny.
    This one has Super Potential.
    Where was In June ’96?

    Time to go get Tenis.com or Teenis.com…hhahah
