Labeled as guide in Domain Beginners, started by Raj2610, Mar 14, 2020
You're the best. God bless you.
@Seyikp - sorry none of them look appealing.
Ok, thanks alot.
@Haris Ijaz - we cannot speak for non-com extensions. One note on these, bar is much much higher there.
Reboob - interesting, thought it could be breast enlargement site, but not sure even women would like to use the word. And unfortunately, there is a definition for that https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=reboob - so not sure if there is market for this.
That's Urban Dictionary, anybody can give their own definition there. Talking about the applications of the domain name, there are many, and for Market, it's expected to grow to $4bn+ by 2025.
@NameFit Thanks for taking your time in explaining it. It certainly helps me a lot. In all of the domains which I have purchased, I never looked at them at business perspective. I will take your suggestions seriously and work on it.
@NameFit great work here.
If you don't mind, would like to test with you some of the acquisitions over the week:
@Recons.Com - sure. Thanks for reaching out. Not sure about other languages. Rest please see below
Fervor/org - not sure of business model on this
Lorises/com - hard to pronounce, not sure of business model
AthleticPlay/com - this is good, video games etc., sports game, sports company name.
ihaveaheart/com - this could be good for charity use in case of org, not sure if it can be a matchmaking site. You always have to go by 'first impression' it gives that is a charity/non-profit site.
RushmoreFour/com - not sure if you want a name that is tied to a really famous thing - you are 'limiting' your perception.
HealthTrophy/com - not so great, health is 'largely' a concern, not sure words like trophy/prize suite there. just not good combination.
FigureHappy/com - this is good, any boutique/fashion brand/health awareness/sports etc.
GagSpot/com - not sure of the business model. If you losely consider gag to mean, stop, not sure what you can do with this
Arrivoo/com - Gave it good bit thought, did not come up with a good use of this name. Delivery service - no, where else. Just does not sound right.
MyCastings/com - names starting with my sound like personal sites, that is one limitation. Second, castings is not a word that is used in every day language.
Groomagic/com - this is ok, shaving product (shaving cream/razor etc), may be men's salon, pet grooming, any grooming business. If not bride/groom area
ValuationLabs/com - this is good, venture capitalists, business appraisers etc or any generic labs name.
ClockHome/com - home is a popular word - but associated with word that has a meaning, makes one wonder about 'relationship' between the two. Also, people may think - is it about clocks or homes. Plus lack of s is another limitation if it is about homes.
512Bits/com - only very few technical people know what 512 means, in such cases where numbers are used you may prefer to stay short where possible. Bytes is more popularly known, not sure even if SSL companies want to mention the number in name.
RealtyPurchase/com - interesting one. If you plan to use it for Realty Business, people prefer to personally brand their realty. Even though word 'realty' technically translates to 'Property', somehow word 'realty' is used more often for business names dealing with realty. This is how the usage has become ABC Realty, Nick Realty. Not sure how many people use this sentence 'I am going to buy some realty' or 'I purchased some realty in Arizona', or 'he owns some realties' (realties does not exist and there must be reason for that). In these cases, people use the word 'property'. One should go for a name with words what people use in every day speaking.
I think you'll have your own idea of value by simply doing a Google search for the term. The fact that the urban dictionary entry is the first thing that comes up is never a good sign.
@NameFit Thank you for your time and input. Kindly give your feedback
All are com and I you don't need to look at all of them, just skip to the ones you believe have potential. I am noob at this but I am learning as I go along. Thank you for your patience with my list.
VaccinAIt (Pronounced just like vaccinate) (the AI is for aritficial intelligence used in vaccine research)
IoTechToys (IOT is internet of things)
WicDelivery (Many mothers in the USA depend on the government WIC, I figure one day home delivery will be possible from online?)
AIpreprints (Artificial Intelligence research submission area)
IOTdod (IOT data operational defense?)
XiBear (XinJinping of China has a nickname called Winnie the Pooh, and thus a political commentary site?)
@NameFit bro would like your opinion on this :
d o m a i n i s e .com
@noobusmaximus, here you go
DeferMyLoans - this could be ok, every one wants their loans deferred (not specific to these times)
GigForMe - this is good, freelancing site.
TraceHint - this could be tracking/cyber security software/company
UpshotCredit - ok, credit is highly sought after word, presense of 'up' adds value.
@NameFit I appreciate your feedback. Thank you
@LordMonitor - interesting word. 6 of the 9 characters match with sought after word (domain). Will do for any domain portfolio name. In US it is 'ize' . Best value you can add to this name if you can
a) come up with a process related to domain industry (as opposed to domains being treated just as domains)
b) come up with a good tagline.
@maish56 - sure
goserving - not really, ones end with 'ing' are not great names 'in general'
partyed - not really
uvalab - no
placefly - too many travel sites, just does not add up.
postallabs - ok, pronounceable, it could be a logistics company, 'labs' have value.
nabgo - this is good, delivery service, curbside pickup (which may just become norm in future)
purobet - no, odd combination of words, too many syllables for such a short name.
layify - not really
@Zei - sorry. None of them sound any good.
First, let me thank you for taking the time to analyze and share the opinion. Overall, you have a great approach with some rules of thumb. At the same time, some of my great sales have been the ones that did not fit anyone's rule of thumb and I got a great deal both at buying and at selling point.
Now, just to share my thinking in buying these:
Fervor/org - Fervor is a great positive motivating word. It means "intense and passionate feeling". So it has pretty much unlimited application in non-profit section. You can name a non-profit working with youth, religious ones, the ones helping poor and homeless etc.
Lorises are small primates. As an animal name, especially a primate name, you could name lots of businesses with it, doesn't even have to match what you do. It is pronounced as "Loris is", so quite simple, 3 syllables.
RushmoreFour - there are 4 presidents on Rushmore... Each having a special role in the US history. So could be a great patriotic resource, a consulting business, a think tank etc.
HealthTrophy - there are plenty of apps in Healthcare that are focused on gamification of health. So you could have a company that rewards reaching milestones, creates community around it etc.
GagSpot - this could be for development. Basically, funny stuff. Spot works as an indicator of place, like GameSpot.
Arrivoo - travel related, as in arrival to the destination.
groomagic - you are right. it was used for that and probably will be picked up for the similar use again.
My/Castings - Castings are a large industry for movie/video/commercials/modeling/photo industry. These are basically tryouts for actors and models for a specific role. And, yes, castings is used in an every day language.
ClockHome - I am probably going to develop with world time related info and services. Hard to compete area and hard to find a good word combo for this. So was happy with this one. You could do ecommerce site selling clocks too.
512bits - it is a current/future tech, so I was fine buying it speculatively.
RealtyPurchase - I am with you there to an extent. Yes, BuyProperty would be a fantastic name, probably 5 figure end user, low 4 figure reseller if it comes up in GD auctions for example. But property is a multi trillion industry. And there tens of thousands of people in the US only that buy homes for cash that operate under awful names and could upgrade to something that clearly tells what they do and is memorable and meaningful. So, I am positive this will find a buyer for around $2K.
To conclude, we think in similar direction with the difference being that I probably have a bit more flexibility with the rules. Branding is not an exact science and although some rules are there, it is still a mix with art and each name requires personal consideration.
Thank you again for volunteering. You are doing great!
In theory, every domain name will have a high transaction price that day, but when the high transaction price when the domain name is still in your hands
@NameFit Thank you for the feedback.
@NameFit thanks for your time, what's your take on those, all in .com, and which ones need to drop? boogiverse, donnaton, flewsey, grewt, lawensics, prodacle, spendering, tilham, vognes, woughton.
Can I hear your opinions about these domains?
