    Hello all -

    I may have asked for appraisals on this before but now we are going to really sell this domain.

    Estibot says $355,000. Personally I think it's worth more but then again, I'm asking for appraisals so really haven't a clue.

    Help me out! :)

    The only thing you can do with this domain, is donate it to me :)

    355K seems to be quite high. Few domains sell in that range.
    Donations are usually for charitable purposes. Hence this name is less suitable for commercial use than names like credit.com, raisemoney.com, fundme or whatever... I think I would drop one zero easily. Good luck :)

    Gofundme campaigns collect "donations" all day. This one word is the center of a multi-billion dollar marketplace.

    This domain can easily be monetized. That said, it's only worth what someone will pay!

    I agree with Kate in her assessment. It's obviously a great name but you can make a case the .org would be an equally desirable option. Anyone interested in the .com would probably look into the .org too which could limit your price.

    Not many comps to go off.

    Donations.co sold for $1K in March of 2013.
    MakeADonation.com $2,750 in 2011.

    There isn't an easy to find 'Donat' prior domain sale in the five figures. Add in the people that will say "I rather have an org" and those that may not want the plural or even the 'nation'. It's not a slam dunk 1/3 of estibot.

    Rush sale not good

    But it's is a very nice name and anything can happen with quality names.

    Both .com and .org together are well worth the 5-figure range. How much exactly will depend on the buyer and how he plans to utilize the name. But it has a lot of potential.

    Fantastic name.
    I think anyone who was looking to spend big money would go with Donate.com instead though.

    Donate.com is the killer in the field. Followed by donation singular.

    Still, there's huge money in this area. Non-profits can be very well funded. I could see the name providing a donation processing service or the like.

    Six figures isn't a dream, but I would want to see whether the other 2 I mentioned are available. That would limit your chances.
