What is Your Most Valuable Domain Name?

180

Last week, I asked people to share their favorite domain name. At the time of publication, the article had just shy of 300 comments. Many of the comments offered feedback about submitted domain names, but the majority were comments with people’s favorite domain names submitted.

One thing I was surprised about was the number of new gTLD domain name submissions. I would have thought the vast majority of submissions would be .com domain names. It was interesting for me to observe the number of new gTLD domain submissions that readers favor.

I am now curious to see what you think your most valuable domain name is. I am sure many people have more than one domain name they consider valuable, and I think it would be interesting if people shared the domain name they own that holds the most (financial) value today. I also invite you to share what you think the domain name is worth. Feel free to leave a “wholesale” and “retail” value if you would like.

Others are welcome to comment on the domain name submissions to share their thoughts on the valuation. For instance, if someone posts “RER.com is my most valuable domain name and I think it is worth $100,000,” others can share whether they believe the domain name is worth more or less. This is similar to a domain appraisal thread.

As with the last article, please keep in mind that people may have different opinions than the opinion posted by the domain owner, and all comments that don’t get caught by the spam filter will be published. People who might take offense to comments about the valuation of domain names should not post their domain name here for others to review. Each week, DNJournal posts a report of sales from the previous week, and there are many names that sold for far more than I would have ever guessed.

    This is going to be another popular thread. Thanks for the opportunity Elliot!

    My most valuable domain is:

    OnlineBusiness.com

    Wholesale value: $150K
    Retail value: seven figures

    Think Shopify.com, Squareup.com and any other major ecommerce player.

      Nice name. Curious: if you had unlimited funds and had to choose only 1 development plan how would you develop it out?

      In reply to Mike | June 3rd, 2015 at 12:33 am

      Mike S

      Good question. Was tough considering the domain might seem TOO general. But hopefully what we come out with will satisfy the needs of those looking to either start or grow an online business.

      Vague I know but we’ll be launching end of July. So keep an eye out and check back later.

    Arpit Agrawal

    PubsVegas.com valued at $1,000 reseller and $8k – $10k end user.

    I usually prefer and flip hand-regged names. So, all are valued in this range itself. 😛 😉

    Edward Alfert

    I think my favorite is also my most valuable….

    Virtual.World

    I will be happy to keep paying the $430/year renewal until it sells to a major virtual reality company (Oculus, Magic Leap, Google, Microsoft, etc.) in the $xxx,xxx range.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 4:56 pm

      Mike

      You just said that you have registered your domain name in bad faith.

      In reply to Edward Alfert | June 2nd, 2015 at 5:05 pm

      Edward Alfert

      Mike,

      Did you reply to my post my mistake instead of another?

      “virtual world” is a very popular generic phrase ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_world ) and the act of registering a generic domain for reselling later for a profit is not an act of bad faith.

      In reply to Mike | June 2nd, 2015 at 5:14 pm

      Mike S

      Too many Mikes in the world..lol. Just to be clear the Mike that commented on your domain is not me.

      I think Virtual.World is a great pickup and if I owned it I’d definitely sit tight and wait for the right end-user.

      Best of luck!

      In reply to Edward Alfert | June 2nd, 2015 at 5:19 pm

      Mike

      Bad faith has nothing to do with generic.

      In reply to Edward Alfert | June 2nd, 2015 at 5:38 pm

      Ron

      I do not think Edward is holding it in a squatting position, the term has evolved, and the TM office is not awarding trademarks on such terms anymore, as they have become to widly, and loosely used. I have experience with such a Virtual TM where it was shot down as being to generic by the TM agent.

      Edward you probably could have worded it better when you committed on the eventual sale. Having a $500 renewal is a bit of a sticking point though.

      In reply to Mike | June 2nd, 2015 at 7:08 pm

      Leonard Britt

      I have a similar name .COM in Spanish which gets LOTS of offer page views but despite being priced $XXX no buyer yet. I believe $430/year in renewals will not turn out well.

    I bought into the ‘wearables’ market fairly early. Got two:

    1. SmartWatchStore.com
    2. WearableMagic.com, which gets a lot of traffic over at DNS parking.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Leonard Britt

    There are a couple of angles here – exact search volume and PPC which domain investors perhaps place too much emphasis on at times and brand value which goes back to a short domain for a market where the product or service has a considerable value (real estate for example).

    I am going with a brandable with the end user being either a local TV station or a tourist destination website with video content or possibly a real estate agency highlighting local area real estate. I’ll have to admit I am not good at gauging end user value.

    SanAntonioTV.com

    Hi Elliot
    The favorite domain post was a hit! What a great idea. My most valubel domain is probably one of my favorite domains

    SanAntonioHomes.com I value it at $40,000

    PhotographySchool.com
    Although Im not interested in selling I value it at $125,000

    June 2nd, 2015 at 5:20 pm

      Tyson

      Real Estate names are tricky. I own several cityHomes.com domains and a few cityRealEstate.com domains. Some agents absoulutly get it and some are still in the dark ages. It has been tricky to get a good pulse on that market.

      In reply to Elliot Silver | June 4th, 2015 at 1:44 am

      PhotographySchool.com is excellent. SanAntonioHomes.com is also good.

      June 3rd, 2015 at 7:59 am

      Tyson

      PhotographySchool.com is in need of an update and more attention. It could be doing much better than it is. As soon as they add that 25th or 26th hour to the day 😉

      In reply to Daniel | June 4th, 2015 at 1:40 am

    Marian

    I believe my most valuable domain is “SocialMediaGames.com”

    Don´t know what his market value can reach but if I compare it with:
    GamesForGirls.com (an UGLY domain that sold for $500,000 USD) I think
    my domain is worth at list the same amount.

    NOTE: Talking about the market value; it really depend on what a domain
    name means to the buyer … I own “1stBandWidth.com” a domain name that
    SOLD back in 2000 (source: NameBio.com) for $800,000 USD and today I won´t
    get 1% from that sale for it.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 5:24 pm

    Davinderpal S Bhatia

    At the top of my best domains is DNAsequencing.com (plus DNA-sequencing.com) with wholesale price $ 300,000 and retail/end user price in 7 figure USD.

    Other top domains are
    DigitalPrinter.com ($20k and $ 100k)
    HollywoodTimes.com ($20k and $100k)
    GuruNanak.com/.org ($20k and $100k)
    Bathinda.com Indian City ($10k and $50k) on auction at sedo from June 3rd.

    Appraisals are welcome.

    Depending on the outcome of ‘Project Ara’ and other modular phone start ups, my most valuable domain would be:

    ModularPhones (dot) com,

    Potentially a mid six figure valuation should modular tech really take off.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    Mike

    Elliot, now you see what those new domainers are dreaming about :)) How unrealistic their opinions are. You should have added a sub-question “How much would you pay for it if it is available?”. That would be a game changer.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 5:43 pm

      EM @KING.NET

      I wonder the same thing. From the previous post favorite domains I only saw few domain that has potential e.g. Lilac.com, jra.com, but most are junk.

      Sorry truth hurts.

      In reply to Mike | June 2nd, 2015 at 5:51 pm

      Kevin M.

      But in fairness Elliot, there is a difference between ‘favorite’ and ‘potential’ domains. ..just sayin’..

      In reply to EM @KING.NET | June 3rd, 2015 at 2:04 am

      Elliot Silver

      That is true. Last week’s post was more of a personal favorite domain name, not necessarily most valuable. I am curious what people would consider their most valuable in this post.

      June 3rd, 2015 at 8:03 am

    Joe (hello@simplicity.company)

    Autoinsurance.company | http://www.autoinsurance.company is my most valuable domain. There re thousands of auto insurance companies but just one exact match domain Autoinsurance.company with instant credibility, built in brand 100% discriptive and many more. The fact is we all search for auto insurance company, not auto insurance com, net, org, club, etc. I hope to lunch it someday until then Autoinsurance.company is available for purchase.
    Thanks again Elliot.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 5:55 pm

      Leonard Britt

      IMO too generic and too long – companies go with shorter brandables….

      StateFarm
      Allstate
      Geico
      Afco
      Progressive
      Hartford
      Farmers
      Nationwide

      Thanks Britt for the update :). VacationRentals.com isn’t short but was good enough to sell for $35,000,000 in 2007.This is just one of hundreds more dear friend. If I was expecting xx,xxx Autoinsurance.company would have been sold last year; look up the offers on Sedo. Speaking of shorter domains, I’ve got you covered with Insure.company | Protect.Website | IMI.company | IMI.website and a few more.

      I can tell you’ve got no problem with Auto Insurance. You’re just not a bit happy with the new extension .company; maybe all of it (new gtlds). Me too, I still don’t like the fact there re too many extensions & with such high renewal price, BUT THE FACT A DOMAIN EXTENSION CAN FINALLY BE MEANINGFUL IS WORTH THE CHANGE. Man, i mean no disrespect; pls. let’s leave the global argument of new gtld vs com. We all got better things to do.

      Um…actually, I don’t.

      The gtlds make no sense to me and are foolish. Stick with one people recognize and won’t forget, whatever that may be.

      In reply to Joe (hello@simplicity.company) | June 7th, 2015 at 2:49 pm

      Carlos

      I also mean no disrespect to anyone, but at this early stage in the game I would suggest allowing time for the market to define the value of new gTLD’s vs .com’s. In my book, the only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happened at once.

    “SocialMediaGames.com”

    Not sure about his value but if I compare it to this UGLY domain: (GamesForGirls.com) which sold for $500,000 USD I believe my
    domain name is worth at least the same amount.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 6:03 pm

      John

      The gamesforgirls.com $500K sale sure has been a tough act to follow. You can have a better domain that doesn’t even generate interest yet. The one you have is nice, but it’s also up against “SocialGames.com.”

      In reply to Marian | June 2nd, 2015 at 8:15 pm

    Jen

    Social.cc

    I’ll take a stab and say $23,000, which is 1% of what the .com sold for.

    In the end,it (and any domain) is worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

    :)

    June 2nd, 2015 at 6:15 pm

      John

      For a .cc, that’s certainly at the pinnacle of the best ones. Your valuation is very reasonable.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    brand

    For some reason i like helicamproductions.com, i picked it up on a drop.
    It has no appraisal value, a few broad searches, but to me its a business in a box and i like it.
    Could be worth a few grand to an end user.
    But i agree with Jen, a domain is worth what a person is willing to pay for it.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 7:29 pm

    Great post Elliot, love to see these kinds!

    I would have to put 3 of mine up there that I can’t quite split.

    Claim.com – I’d probably peg it at $250k wholesale, $1.25-1.5MM end user. Still working behind the scenes on this one.

    Claims.co.uk – I’d peg it at £30-40k wholesale (I did pay £100k as an end user though, before I developed it into a business).

    c.uk – I’d peg it at £50-75k wholesale, but with the traffic and help we’re doing with it, I wouldn’t sell.

    Would love to see other opinions on them.

    ***********
    Just for the legals…. None of the domains are for sale. These domains are developed much beyond the value of the raw domain names. I just think this is a great opportunity to get a view of the market on domains, and as such it’s really interesting to see the results.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 7:51 pm

      Exceptional domain names – especially Claim.com.

    Tough to say mine all fall within a given range. Maybe that’s a sign that I need to spend more into one domain instead of catching registry drops.

    InvestorTechnology.com I would say is low 5 figure domain and our most valuable as it’s age, ImpacySensor.com is there too, and with recent things going on in the world TacticalCamera.com is getting up there.

      Also, what’s the price you sold a domain name for that, after the sale, you realized it was worth much more — especially if it sold later for much more than you sold it for. And, share the domain name, of course.

      In reply to John | June 2nd, 2015 at 9:56 pm

      Lol, yes, like that one too.

      So you think there’s value based on someone else’s brand equity? There’s a word for that… Don’t worry they won’t come after you for $8.99.

      Forgot about iThingsShop.com. I know you’re being facetious, but time will tell who is right and who is wrong about iThings. I’m willing to wait to win.

      Wouldn’t they just target iThings.com as it’s no double s, shorter, and could be used for a store?

      time will tell who has fell and who’s been left behind.

      most people either weren’t in the game long enough or can’t afford 3 letter dot come or fuel.com but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try, so i find it kind of offensive when issac says reg fee for linda’s domain but thinks his own is worth 5 figures.
      some stupid names get lucky and get great offers.
      so linda go for it

    I think you all have some pretty great names, but I would be careful about ascribing value to new gTLD names this early in the game. Even new gTLD names that are obviously really good (like the aforementioned virtual.world) generally have little or no value now and their future is uncertain.

      June 3rd, 2015 at 7:59 am

    LF

    Based on the number of inquiries I get each week, I’d have to say my most valuable domain names are:

    – CAPM.com (financial firms inquire)
    – NoMatterWhat.com (ad agencies and weird people with no money inquire).

    I think they are worth low to mid $XX,XXX to the right deep-pocketed end user buyers.

    June 2nd, 2015 at 10:08 pm

      Elliot Silver

      NoMatterWhat.com seems like the type of name that could do really well if someone wants it badly enough.

      June 3rd, 2015 at 8:00 am

      LF

      Thus my comment about weird people with no money — they want it really badly for some personal reason or project but they don’t have the funds to pay what a corporate buyer would pay for it. Better to wait for the corporate buyer, unless a wealthy individual decides he or she just has to have it.

    Reading your blog for the first time – Sorry I thought the question was “What is your most valuable domain name?”…Oh wait it is!

    …would just like to point out, you asked a fun question that quickly became as painful to look at as a SEDO search result..

    Would kindly advise you start filtering out anyone who can’t follow your rules for comments – The domain industry is literally full of crap. New TLDs are nothing more than ICANN and their power brokers opening more barn doors of smelly manure for sale – and it’s working…

    Everyone wonders what XYZ stands for – I know what it stood for in the 5th grade and it hasn’t changed..

      Thanks for reading it.

      People being unable to follow directions is one reason I very rarely post a “domain wanted” article here.

      I see what you’re saying about the comments and not being able to follow directions (like asking people to submit one domain name), but I’d rather leave them than deal with lots of emails from people asking why their comment was deleted.

    Thanks Elliot!

    I have more faith on the brandable short dot-com names, preferably those having internet and technology genes. Ironically, most of my favorites are just drop-catches.

    grocia.com
    I see it has great potential to brand a grocery chain, an agricultural product line, or a supermarket delivery service.

    aitho.com can be used to build an art, fashion, life style brand. The word aitho means burn, kindle, flame in Greek.

    BioCipher.com will find its value when the biometrics applications really take off.

    I welcome appraisals on these names, preferably from the eyes of end-users :-)

    I registered PolymerBank.com (new plastic banknotes) in late March this year but according to DNS it has already attracted an average daily uniques of about 5 or total uniques of least 300 to date! I just wonder whether this domain could soon become quite valuable or sought-after?

    Perhaps the next question could be what is the highest sale you have ever made and how much did you pay for that domain?

    It is one thing to reg or backorder a domain and set a $XX,XXX price on it. It is totally another to find an end user willing to pay even $XXXX for it.

      I’d like to kindly offer that if I were you I would have taken all the reg fees and focused on buying 1 good name on a sedo or godaddy $100 auction – you can find them if you look hard enough…

      XYZ simply stands for “your zipper is unzipped” or “your fly is open” – ask any kid what XYZ means and that’s what he will tell you…

      Just a friendly suggestion – I REALLY hate to see people waist their money while also making TLD owner’s dreams come true… the only way to make money with .XYZ is to own it – only 1 guy does own it, and he’s got to be laughing all the way to the bank…

      Good luck!

      I think the official term is
