    There is really no market for obscure words and tenses, even in .COM.

    There are many available to register, for that reason.

    Single word .COM is valuable. The only caveat: Must be a keyword or have significance

    Trying to sell things like the Polish word for letterbox or a weird word you've found in a dictionary ...you're going to struggle, due to an overall lack of connection / desirability

    Reality hit back. Take it as a lesson and get back on your feet.
    You could have went for quality instead of quantity by acquiring 1 instead of 300.

    It's very important to realize that there's a BIG difference between a dictionary word and a commonly used dictionary word.

    Did you use any (at least 1) of these 300 words in your entire life? :sour:

    But the key thing is, they're extremely rare words (words that even most English speakers in the U.S. wouldn't recognize or be able to spell), and you have to ask yourself if they have any commercial value.

    In other words, is it a positive, memorable word that is recognizable and conveys an emotion, or is something that a company would be able to use to sell a product, or launch a brand?

    There are Top 100 words, Top 500-1000 words, Top 10,000 words, and then there are those that are extremely obscure, and are hardly ever spoken or written. I scanned through the list in your profile, and there were only a couple that I might have recognized, or wanted to Google.

    Define "common." Find an example of the words being used in context, or by a company in marketing or advertising.

    $100000 which one can be bought? no
    the professional words represent their industry. goods or knowledge or some people or some emotion. even some are trademark of some company

    Hi @huwenbin (y)

    Sorry to disappoint, but I agree with what's already being said by others in this thread. You will have a difficult time selling these domains anytime soon, or sell them at all.

    I understand the difficulty. You spent your money registering the domains, and now feel emotionally attached to them. Probably you would easily spot good domains from other domainers, but are not able to spot the quality of your own portfolio.

    Please accept the advice given by others, and move further. Only then will you become a better domainer. It will take some time, effort, discipline, flexibility, and money.

    One essential element in your domaining journey seems that you have to improve your English language skills considerably. Of course, this cannot be done instantly, but it will be a solid basis for your overall success in registering, buying and selling English domains.

    Good luck, and keep sharing your experiences, even your doubts, with the community.

    These words you listed up there are hot common words. Everybody knows the meaning of them.

    The words you did register i heard for the first time.

    upload_2021-7-25_21-7-36.png

    Before registering a domain you really need to do your research:
    -is there a niche/branche/market for that domain?
    -are there any possible endusers?
    -is it usefull for any company/service?
    - ....

    And stay away from registering "one word dot coms". In my opinion there is nothing left to register with value expect of some upcoming trends and madeup words.

    Take a look at previous namepros threads. You'll find a lot of important and usefull informations of domaining overall. Its worth it - trust me.
    Good luck :)

    How can the buyer come, if they do not know what the word is? There is nothing to come to, to begin with.
    The only hope would be a portfolio site that can be found, with your words listed there. But rest assured, if you have to explain what the name means and how to spell it, your better off going towards the brandable route which can be catchy/creative to a degree.
