    Thank you, but you really were able to say it more nicely I guess and NameWorth is the official appraisal tool for NamePros do they wrong too !!

    Maybe I should let you know that I'm in contact with very big domain names broker who care and sell only for extra premium names as you may know, but maybe they are wrong as well!!

    Could be something like an auto price saver like WikiBuy Chrome extension but only for booking and travel related business

    What will be the value then?

    Where did you see that NameWorth is the official appraisal tool for namepros?

    Only thing automated appraisals are good for is any pertinent info about the name and some ridiculous high price we can quote to an end user.
    I have thought about how i would monetize and develop this domain.
    A book about things not to do is all i see
    DoNot believe automated appraisal tools
    DoNot believe human appraisals
    DoNot guess at what your domain might be worth if you did something with it

    Looking at Donotpay or sell, your domain could be similarly used to create some kind of awareness or as a complaint cell for booking frauds.

    Okay first of all we all know appraisal bots are idiotic and useless especially in my case in any new niches which is my focus, i have names right now that epik is negotiating as part of their ultra premium outbound for 20k+ that dont break 1k appraisals.

    The way you can market this, because this domain would only be sold with the right marketing , is this is the review site for bad airbnb and hotels etc, the anti airbnb etc, the ripoff report of airbnb hosts etc, with that maybe you can squeeze low thousands.

    Thank you very much, so the squeezing of low thousands is without any development but with good marketing plan to the domain as is, but what if the domain some how developed and start to get traffic what could be the price if you could give an estimate. Thank you.

    On the road again.. an expert categorized my domain name as a tier 2 domain and gave a price estimation as $200 max !!

    Is this fair evaluation?

    It has meaning so that's something.

    It could only really be used for a SomethingSucks website. Basically a dumping ground for negative reviews.

    That is the use case. Whether that website gets built remains to be seen.

    Thank you very much, that's what I'm thinking in a SomethingSucks website against the travel and booking industry,
    Could you please give a price estimate if it is a domain and if it is a built website?

    What if DoNotBook.com got developed as a dumping ground for negative reviews for the booking and travel industry, what will be the price of it?

    Agree that the best use is as a negative review, consumer advocacy site.

    it remind me, I own a similar name which I developed to a reading site...it is in Chinese ...but w. google translate, u may also can enjoy it..

    back to concern regard Anti-CTA, I have different opinion, sometime people just want say something negative to presents the humor or something...I means, it can be a strategy for branding may be..

    I typed it in to see what your lander looks like. After 10 seconds i get a connection times out error.
    It really only has one way to develop, which is what i would do if, if ,if, if I thought it had value.
    If you build it out and if you get traffic, if you convert traffic to usd, if all the stars align you have a winner.

    Thank you Zilla, you have a good website, I'm seriously thinking of developing my domain as well. I wanted to hear your price estimate of the domain as a domain and as a developed website , thank you.

    @lyman - It doesn't seem like you want an honest appraisal. It sounds like you're more interested in confirmation of your own bias toward this name.

    The name has a lot of issues that hurt its value:
    • It was registered only two months ago
    • It's not registered in any other extension
    • No existing businesses or websites contain this term
    • Its meaning is negative (as others have mentioned)
    Could it be used to post negative travel reviews? Sure, but no one is going to pay much money for that kind of domain name, especially when sites like TripAdvisor are already well established.

    Comparing to DoNotPay.com doesn't make sense. Not paying for something is a good thing. People love not paying.

    Comparing to DoNotSell.com doesn't make sense either. Their main site is a .org, since this is a non-profit initiative. Do you know how much they paid to acquire the .com name? If you could find out, then that might be a good place to start to assess the value of your name, but it would only be a start. Many other factors would need to be considered, and I suspect they didn't pay that much for it anyway.

    I would list the name at $999 for the year, and I wouldn't personally renew it. You might make a lucky sale, but remember that this name sat deleted for six years before you bought it. For six years, anyone could have had it for $10, and no one registered it.

    As @MasterOfMyDomains said, you ultimately need to do what you believe is best, but all data and common sense is against you on this one.

    If you develop the name, whatever value you get will be based purely on the quality and money-making potential of the site. It will have nothing to do with the quality of the domain itself. These are two very different questions, and this appraisal section focuses only on domain name quality alone.

    Good luck with it!
