    I have Bankrep.org along with Banksuppory.org and Banksecurity.net

    The two .org ones have 25-26 views in under 48hrs of listing them. Maybe because I only listed them for about $140, but I just raised the price on all three by $100.


    I'm guessing bank domains do somewhat well?

    Anyway, what is the value for these? I thought around $140 but it might be worth a lot more to some individuals involved with social banking.

    The problem with "Bank Rep" is a bank will have reps under their own established name...going through this "bankrep.org" site is unnecessary

    Even if its a "Bank Rep" that offers banking services / banking problem solving as an independent entity, I still don't get it...people go direct to the bank they want to do business with, and talk it out for a solution. That is what most people do

    I struggle with all 3, in terms of use. Bank Support / Bank Security...banks don't need accommodating with these things. Again, they're good

    Majority of the time Traffic is not an indicator of interest unless you can track it to an enduser
    in your case your domains have no DA or Backlinks so perhaps it is worth it to check where your traffic is coming from park it with sedo

    I do have it parked with sedo. Okay I'll look into finding out that info.

    Maybe a webpage that has contacts and stats of local bank reps?

    Support could just be a blog about banking or some kind of help center.

    And security could be the same as support pretty much..

    Well sh*t haha, what are they like $20-50? 60-70? Lol

    I would personally not renew #1 and #2. Only the third domain, Bank Security net, has some potential. However, instead of "bank", the term "banking" would be much better -- and also in the .com or .org TLD.

    In the .com TLD such a banking security domain could sell things like secure hardware/software authenticators, specialized encryption hardware (b2b), or banking security audits and penetration tests (b2b).

    One of my domains is Banking // Security // (dot) // org and is currently modestly priced at USD 3,899. I'm targeting some technical security and policy standards groups, a journal or a conference, within the banking industry. This obviously is a niche market and not intended for the general public nor banking customers, though.

    ''Bank'' is a very tricky word in domaining unless it's SpermBank, of course. In all other cases I personally try to avoid it, because precisely as mentioned earlier by @jhm - in reality people won't go to some abstract ''bank'' site for services, they would go directly to their bank that has a name and website already.
    In some cases of course ''bank'' names could be sold well (but mostly these are taken) for some aggregator/comparison database, but it's not the case with above-mentioned names.

    BankSecurity.net stands out a bit for some software maybe, but it's not an excellent choice either. But , from the other hand if you sell it for $140 - why not? Leave it there. There is always a ''lucky strike''.

    Also, don't pay attention to immediate views on your domain, after publishing. These are mostly crawling bots. Check the next day and the day after - most likely you'll see a different picture.

    Good luck!

    Just another thing to touch upon about bank security. Banks have existing relationships with companies that provide the latest, best and recommended security for their needs...deep rooted relationships, the bank trusts them, to help with looking after their customers money

    With that in mind, they're unlikely to switch...even if the people under the "bank security" domain brand are creating cutting-edge, strong tech. The guys that have that existing relationship with the bank, will look at what you're doing, and make adjustments (even adjustments getting around patents)...their purpose becomes somewhat redundant. At that level, in that sector, its a priority. With their bank relationship, they will find ways

    I can imagine you say that the banking sector is not known for disrupting the market. It has a lot of legacy systems and long lasting relationships indeed. On the other hand, there's a lot of disruption in this industry going on. Traditional banking gets extremely digital, and this needs more and better digital security. There is demand for consultancy, software, products, and other services. New companies in the banking industry are starting on a regular basis. Existing banks start to rethink their business models and need new services and partners as well.

    They're still going to turn to their usual guys, regarding improvements. Copying exists, banks have the money to help with copying / making slight differences...whatever it takes, they'll do it. A struggle for competition and getting in there

    ...I probably wouldn't have a fatalistic view, if it wasn't a bank

    The world is not that static. Things do change. Former bankers start new companies in the online payments sector, and have the advantage that they can start from scratch, without building further on legacy systems with vendor lock-ins (like IBM). But indeed, most traditional banks are not known for disrupting the market.

    @Clover - you can try to find ideas for new domains in the PDF mentioned above. In general, these kind of professional PDFs in any industry are often full of inspiration. But do your research and only create domains that will benefit end-users.

    Banks indeed move very slowly. That is why they are losing customers like crazy. More and more companies open up and offer the same service that banks offer but much quicker and cheaper.
