    There has never been a publicly reported sale on Namebio for this extension since its release in 2014.....

    "The domain surgery went live into General Availability on the 13th August 2014"

    Does this tell you something 🤔

    Your not going to get $700 for this.....

    In addition to lack of past sales in the extension noted by @NickB, to me the order is not optimum. If the name was for a blog about surgeries, I would prefer the name surgery.blog, since .blog, especially since among writers .blog is a much more known extension. That name is available for hand registration (NO I am not proposing registering it), but at a very steep ($2000 wholesale) registry premium. However, for less than $10 I could hand register TheSurgery.Blog which to me would be a more descriptive match.

    Now it is possible my thinking is wrong, as TheBlogSurgery is registered and active on .com, and an exact term match on "blog surgery" leads to 46k results, many more than i would have expected. If the intention of the name is a site helping people analyze and reconstruct their blogs, the order you have is indeed better. But still I think odds of selling it are tiny, and probably even then at a very modest price. There are 113k results for quotation search on "surgery blog" so my reasoning seems week in above paragraph. But I still believe it :xf.grin:.

    Or, I could hand register your name in .com (or any other TLD): BlogSurgery.com.

    Even though no aftermarket sales, there are a few of the .surgery names in use, such as one.surgery.

    It is not a name that i would have registered personally. The renewal is more than first year registration, so, if you have not received any offers or interest after a year, I would not renew.

    I hope it works out for you @Carlton9597. This is not an exact business. And welcome to NamePros!

    PS in my research I found the following list of top 10 surgery blogs from around the world. Might be helpful background as you research the niche and think about possible end use.
