    Hi - wondering if there is a simple way to check if a domain name is considered premium.

    Thank you!

    if Simon says, it's premium and Afternic doesn't label it as premium

    then who would you believe?


    Premium listings, or Listed as Premium, are a selling point and often serve a profit center for some marketplaces.

    you should be able to recognize difference between a premium listing and a premium domain.
    as often they aren't the same

    :)

    imo..

    Here's an example: There is a domain buyer request on name pros "Do you own a premium domain name you want to sell?" - does that just mean the buyer is looking for a fantastic domain name?

    Thanks for your help!

    Probably a domain that most people would assume could easily sell for at least $1000 if auctioned today.. Maybe not $1000. Someone's threshold could be $5000 or something, but you know
    Most domains here, if they were auctioned today in a domainer auction, might reach $10 or $20
    Good ones might go into the 3 figures
    A real Premium should usually reach at least 4 figure.. I think..

    Or a domain that even most non-domainers would understand why it is in high demand / valuable..
    Common phrases, words, short domains..
    FreshStart.com, Skill.com, ZAK.com..
    Something you would be really proud to own..

    well the aim of domaining is to study long and hard enough to know on your own what is a good ("premium") domain.. and what is not... without you being able to know this on your own.. no tools or shortcuts will help you.

    really.. there is no quick easy or simple anythign in domaining.. there is just 100s of hours of learnign and studying domaining.

    Hi

    if you "read" their post, they don't mention their budget, which is a requirement for that section.


    also, they are a new member, who doesn't have any trader rating points
    additionally, they want you to send names to their gmail address

    and..... if you read further down the thread, they want names with at least 150 monthly searches
    that to me, that does not give indication that they know what premium is, either

    and.... if you scroll to bottom of page, you'll see that the thread was closed.

    so, based on that alone, would you bother responding to that request?

    imo....

    Easy: if you read "Premium", most likely it's not Premium.

    Premium is a concept inherently attached, a permanent attribute that can not be freely decided or easily anounced. Its just there and everyone understands it.

    The best tool is between the ears...one persons 'premium' may be anothers 'fair'.

    It's like the old saying 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' and the same is true with domains with the exception of 2 or 3 letter dot coms. Those, by any stretch of reason, are ultra premium and super premium no matter what they may or may not spell.

    There's no tool for that. Every name in aftermarket is referred to as premium

    Many new gtld domains have a premium renewal, but a premium renewal != a premium domain.
