Finally landed in my account this morning .
I agree, for example I have BestHolo which is better than HoloBest, but in most cases, it's the keyword after Holo that will work best.
If you're trying to handregister a crap Holo name and find it's taken, it could be owned by me. But don't worry, it will drop at some point in the next 12 months, LOL!
Probably wont be me trying to register those names, every genre reaches a point where people seem to register anything just for sake of it, that's when you look to aftermarket, cheers!
I don’t think there has been much left in Holo for a long time now. Most have been registered since and before 2005.
All the ones I tried to buy are pre - 2005 registered ones. I remember the last I bought Holo was HoloBeam.com, HoloImaging.com & a few on those lines
@Together4Forever I see you own a lot of these new tech names, do share your sales.
Not sure if anyone is after Hologram + Keyword Domains but these are available for reg fee
Hologram Streaming (.com)
Hologram Retail (.com)
Someone might find a use for them
Hey Haris i do one about a 100 domains of Holo/Holographic all registered since 2005. In terms of sales I have sold 2 domains both Holo(Keyword) for 2000 & 2500 respectively. One of them was HoloSim.com & other is under nda.
I have recieved several offers on 2 domain of Holo(Keyword) the last was of 5000$ which I declined.
The only Hologram domain I have is iHolograms.com, never really saw much potential in investing in more names to be honest.
I still see ocassionally holo +kw .com.. or holographic that are dropping not renewed by preious owner.. after a good few years of holding.. sometimes 3.. or 4.. or more.. this happens to VR holdings too.. but very rarely.
one thing is for sure.. there is now a tremendously higher amount of holo+kw.com domains left to reg where the kw is of much higher quality than for what is left to reg for VR right now.
whcih does make it a bit hard to decide what to own in holo+kw.com... as compared to say VR.. which at least for current regs.. is a very easy choice.. as there is nothing more left to reg in vr.
I am all for Holo. And I am slightly biased as my portfolio of VR is limited to a handful of name slike vHeadset.com, MagicVr.com, VirtualRealityRoom.com, VirtualGamingHeadset.com, and stuff like that. About 20 long tails majorly.
However I haven’t recieved enquiries on that to the level I have received on Holo ones.
i’m not speaking for VR - but the notion that there are ANY holo+keyword names left to register is completely false. There is absolutely nothing (of worth anyway).
you may say some ridiculous name like HoloTires or some other really bad name (holobutton maybe) - but not a chance is there anything worth even a $1 promo sitting out there.
as far as holo on the backend
... there are not many... i have GetHolo and there are others like iHolo and maybe something productive like ‘exploreHOLO’ would be good...
making one a brandable may be nice if it has a nice ring to it but as far as ‘keyword+holo’... not really
nice vr names. I am big on VR. but my best VR domains are longtails. though
I also own a solid number of good VR+kw.com domains.
that being said, while I fully understand how best of the best holo domains (just as VR) are long regged and renewed each year... I find it very hard to not reg a few expired or otherwise holo domains still now.. because like I said the quality of what is left out there for holo keywords is just tremendously superoir to what we are all used to in VR.
I am sure people understand this dilema. this does not necessarily speak better of holo than VR or vice versa.. I am just stating facts not trying to make contest or compare. to make things even harder, I also like holographic+kw.. where I had one good sale.. and the occasional hologram+kw... so combine all 3 of these.. and you have yourself still today a good # of solid keywords .. to reg.. and to grab from others dropped domains.
such a dilema simply does not exist for VR today. minus a few exceptions in expired domains..
Just got a $200 offer on( holo *c*a*d*e ) today via Efty !
First one and I haven't even had it 2 months. It's not a enduser , just some guy who wants the name for his business which he has another name for , asked what I wanted for an offer and would pay a fair price but not paying anything "outrageous "..........I'm not selling at reseller price and I'm sure he won't like it if I respond , To me the potential value is high 4 digit low mid 5 ...and I'm sure he'll find it outrageous. ( basically 5k gets attention and the sky's the limit after that ) highly doubt I'd sell for less than 10k .
I wouldn't even consider giving it up for less than 5k and even then knowing holo tech sold for 14.5 and just my own personally belief ....I'm prepared to hold out until XX,XXX buyer comes along .
I want to respond without sounding rude but also letting him know he's not the buyer for my name.
hey bud.. food for thought... that potential buyer could very well be one of the viewers of this thread... so...
btw... it’s not me
Whilst you are probably correct to hold off on the first offer/s, to compare that name to H o l o T e c h is perhaps not a good baseline starting point. Good luck
Though they are not the same name ...what I see in it may just be a different in taste .
But just for fun I'll share the results of a game I played with 2 friends of mine .
I asked each one ( different days too )
"If you had to come up with a domain/ company name that you think would be the best Brandable or version of a "holographic -hologram - Arcade/ game/tech based " company or brand " what would you call it ...what is the FIRST name or words that come to your mind"
2 different friends , 2 different days
1 same exact split second answer
Holo /tech// is keyword super Gem I know .
My gut and mind also tell me if and when any one or company decides brand with "holo" or create a holo game based company ".....I'm holding thee go to #1 best choice anyone's going to get . IMO of course!
Reaching for the stars with a rocket ....time will tell how far it goes .
And yea I do see what you mean by baseline starting point,but could work my way to comparing The two. Right out the gate is iffy
Lol thanks ...yea why I said I want to find a respectful way to respond.
$200 offer and not knowing who imdealing with is different , as it could always be enduser in disguise . Would be different
Hey it's not a bad name, I get it and do think that a good "brandable" should incorporate the subject matter (holographic game arcade) but H o l o T e c h as the name as suggested is an industry based domain and suitable for many applications. As for your friends, I am wondering why they didn't suggest HoloGame ... why need an arcade? Look the main thing is you have had an offer on a name which is only a good thing. Just gotta know where to place it in the big scheme of things. As mentioned, good luck with it!
sounds like you may be better off selling that name to your two friends
may i play devils advocate for a moment
.. keeping in mind i have already stated that i also like the name a lot so i'm not working against you...
holoCADE is... what?.. in my mind, this is for a holographic arcade, yes?
now, unless there's a different arcade than what i know... an arcade is basically a building or a place where all sorts of coin operated games exist.. this was very big in the 80's.
so.. if there ever IS a holo Arcade... the only way this name would be something in the area of five figures is if this holographic arcade became franchised... with that said... and i'm asking because i don't know... are there many franchised arcades?
if that answer is no, or not many... i'd probably be a little more realistic with the expectations
Thanks and I see your point as well.
I think , maybe age ..plays a role in our 30's
To me +Game sounds more like 2 words put together .
Where +Cade sounds "cool " and is 1 word . Just how I perceive it. And thanks again !
so... if you could...
... would you trade holoCade for holoGame?
Interesting to note there was an actual Vr Arcade just down the road from me, sadly not enough interest meant it would close down within a year, before their time? Or perhaps the world has changed?
