Crazy or smart long-term move? Discussion on this topic would be great!
I've seen this trend drop down right here on NP. I think only the top terms "could" be worth something later on.
Yeah. It's a long hold niche if you can wait. I have some decent names In that niche acquired since 2016. What have bought?My latest acquisition in that niche is DriverlessInstitute.com
I plan on holding for quite some time. Self-driving cars will probably become more and more popular in 5-10 years. Grab them now and wait. Are you selling DriverlessInstitute.com now or waiting?
I own the following:
What do you consider "top" terms?
5 years is too far . Autonomous is part of 2018 trend. Most of the car manufacturers and AI startups have started testing their driverless cars. I recently rejected offer on DriverlessProject.com.. Not good offer though
DriverlessInstitute.com? With fair price I can sell. I have some more decent names
It would be great if autonomous and self-driving domains became really valuable sooner rather than later. What is a fair price in your eyes? What do you think about my domains? I know they aren't .com's, but they are key words.
The set with double hyphen is a NO . others may be
I had the same thought in 2014. I registered at the time: AutomatedSUVs.com, AutomatedCabs.com, AutomatedTaxis.com
Still holding. All the preferred terminology at the time was registered.
We are getting closer
There was a guy on here that supposedly spent like $500k or something on these names. Where is he now and what are his domains being used for?
Stuff like: Autonomous | Self Driving (I am guessing)
He is still holding for the future
I got myself AutonomousYatch.com and AutoYatch.com.
Later discovered Yatch is a commonly misspelt word, even used by many News stations and papers.
I don't expect that typo to have so much effect though.
- + not com=dead in most cases. and they are so long.
I have AutonomousVehicles.tech - I'll hold it and see what happens with the market.
There is a manufacturer in the autonomous space called NAVYA, they own NAVYA.tech, which persuaded me to register this domain.
Just yesterday, I received a godaddy offer on one my names. autonomous+kw.. $80 initial offer which I countered
more than likely, the auto manufacturers will use " brand + name" to describe individual self driving models.
so generic description/categories may best chance to have holding value.
And the big players in the industry will always be want to acquire all generic keywords relating to their operations for protection
Separate names with a comma.
