    Let's use this thread to figure out if it is worth retaining a domain. I am hopeful that senior Domainers are going to support the newbies in treading on the right path.

    This discussion be really helpful for domainers. Also it would be helpful if this discussion includes 'why to retain'.

    Many domainers do not realize the value of their domains. One can realize the value of the domain "only" after assessing the 'possible uses of the domain'. Value of the domain does not lie in estimation tools or buzz words but in 'uses of the domain'. One has to analyze in what type of industries/businesses the name can be used. If there are no 'viable' businesses where a domain name can be used, then it has no value. Of course, there is some market in reselling but that has very limited margins. Most of the domains fail in 'scope' aspect of the business, having very limited scope.

    We will be more than happy to guide people in this aspect. If you do not want to discuss in forum here, please DM us if you want to have opinion about your name. We cannot tell the $ value of the domains but can guide you regarding 'possible uses' of the name and then you can decide the value of the domain. Just a note, our expertise is in .com names only.

    Best.

    @Domain Season

    Here are our thoughts on your names

    ZapWe.com - One of the meaning of 'zap' is to move quickly, so transportation/navigation industry
    DreamMerchants.com - good generic name, any trader/merchant can use it. It can be even a fantasy game.
    FindPartnerOnline.com - too many sites online, if one had to get into this business, it has to be short/catchy, this name is too long
    Sportstuf.com - Most people will type 'stuff' by default
    TrekSafety.com - This is ok, navigation/safety/security tool. Considering SafetyTrek.com is also on sale, little better though.
    BeautyIsNow.com - This could be used in related 'beauty/cosmetic' industry, even spiritual sites can use this name.
    HeroPilot.com - generic name, any industry can use it, wide scope
    Carzv.com - too many variations of name, one variation is ok to some extent
    LetUsBrand.com - Good name for naming/branding agency, catchy
    DigitUnited.com - Rather odd combination of constituent keywords, most will remember Digital
    AsiaGreens.com - Asia is big, so has scope and market

    Best.

    This is a great thread!

    In general I don't keep a name unless it has potential retail value of 4 figures, but that's just my business model. A decent portfolio should have a sell through rate of low single digit percent. For example, if your sell through rate is 2% and your average acquisition cost is $20, you should plan to get your investment back in one year, AKA $20/0.02 = $1000 per name, and if you want extra profit, aim for at minimum $1500-3000 selling price. At average cost of $40 per name, your average selling price should be $2000 and up and so on...This is what I've done and worked very well for myself. Handreg can cost less with registrar promotions etc, however, imo all handreg would have even lower STR, and change the entire calculation.

    For the list of names, right off the bat, I can spot HeroPilot with great potential for 4 figures, over $2k retail price, I also really like LetUsBrand. BeautyIsNow has potential as well as beauty is a very strong keyword...maybe zapwe too. It doesn't mean that other names are worthless, I just don't see them with 4 figure retail value at 2% and above STR.

    @Samer

    DefCannabis.com - Cannabis has a market, but not sure if combination with 'def' has much value.
    CannabisDef.com - Cannabis has a market, but not sure if combination with 'def' has much value.
    YourDuties.com - Do not see a business model in this
    NameStud.com - Decent name for naming agency, domain portfolio owner
    Financegy.com - does not rhyme well, not sure what word portion 'xxxegy' can fit into the first part 'finance'
    USDegrees.com - not sure of a business model
    SwiftInquiry.com - ok but 'swift' seems a stretch, if it was swift answers, then it would have made better sense
    DomainLoaning.com - this is ok, new industry but you can watch for few years..

    Best

    @Domaindogged

    americanorange.com - too long, plus no significance of orange to america (sorry if missing connection)
    333design.com - starting with numbers, not a a good idea, also any design shop would name it 'designs'. For 2 word names, the parts needs to be complementary
    idataservice.com - three word name (literally speaking)
    apxai.com - hard to pronounce/hence remember/hence spell
    cbdhealthboost.com - three words name with some abbreviated
    oshtesting.com - not sure what "osh testing" mean, if OSH is abbreviation, sorry do does not look familiar
    slevz.com - does not seem 'similar sounding' name to another word, sleves come closer at best. (sleavz would have been fine for a clothing company)
    servicebookingonline.com - too long
    gutfiber.com - not so keen, at best can be used for a product name, but still does not sound right.

    Hope it helps

    While many can give you estimates or applicable niches (or even say drop it is worthless) in the end these are at most educated guesses not fact. Any good name can sell its just a matter of how long are you willing to wait for it to sell? Alot of people are super impatient so they will get rid of the name quickly and not bear the fruit. People who hold domains only one year aren’t apt to have overwhelming success. You have to give it years.

    Onto what to hold and what to fold— no one can tell you with certainty either way unless the name is utter garbage. No guarantee any name ever sells.

    A personal example, I registered removery in 2019. Alot of people would not register that name to begin with. It sold in 8 months for 5K to a tattoo removal company. Thats an exception to sell a name the first year. If you only give it a year you can miss alot of sales.

    Prepare to hold good or great names for as long as it takes if looking for end user pricing.

    @Jayboltz

    Expert/villa/com
    - decent name/ consulting/advisory/expert opinion
    Digi/policy/com - this is good, you can see virtually any company promoting their digital policy..
    California/cocktail/com - not a fan of geo names, unless it is very popular, it seems to be known to some extent but very limited, not sure to the level one would have a website about this. At best it can be some 'informational site' but not a business site where one can make revenue. Hence less likely there is a buyer for this name.
    Electronics/best/deals/com: Too long, too many businesses in market already, plus electronics limits scope.

    Best
