    Hi there ,
    I'm stuck here , :(

    I think my domain worth something , HomeInsurance.io , but the problem is how can I find end users ??

    I tried mailing the related sales'emails (from Namebio >> whois for every domain)
    then tried mailing all the taken TLDs for the same domain

    but unfortunately , got no reply :(

    can you advice me please ?

    The keyword is good but the TLD not, .io as we all know it's a ccTLD of British Indian Ocean but it is also considered as an abbreviation for input/output which is a good option to target techies, designers and programmers audience, take look at most .io websites. I think it would be hard for you to find the end user.

    Finding an end-user for that domain name may be a waiting game...that's if you find one at all.
    Not a bad two worder for a .com or a .net... But not so much for .io
    IMO ccTLD good investments are one word, short LLL, NNN... and that's about it.
    A lot of people have a misconception that was is good in the .com world should apply to all other ccTLD and gTLD. However, this isn't true.
    Hope this helps

    And FYI...finding an end user is a lot like fishing.. In that you are waiting for that fish to bite maybe for days, weeks, years. You need to be prepared to wait. You list on as many major markets as you can. There is really no secret.

    List on domain marketplaces and wait until someone knocks on your door.

    homeinsurance is a widely popular subject:

    namedroppers.com/b/q?adv=1&k=HomeInsurance&x=47&y=12&exclude=&order=0&min=1&max=63

    You could try to contact some of the people who have a similar domain. May be some will be interested to upgrade their domain name.

    IMHO, it's unlikely that someone with a better name (bought at namebio) will want to buy an .io domain to protect their investment.

    Don't put the cart before the horse.
    First research the market, find out what people are buying.
    Don't buy a domain to later figure out how to sell it.

    Don't spam: the owners of the other TLDs likely don't need your domain.
    If I ran a business on .com or my ccTLD, the last thing I would want is some bloke trying to sell me the same name in an obscure extension, that I don't need.

    Research - Buy - Market - Sell
    Apply your domain knowledge in above order.

    Hold on with the domain. If possible create a blog on Home Insurance and keep posting now and then. Have patience you will get an offer.

    Park your domain at sedo with a fixed price. I hand registered CheapFlights.io last year, parked it at sedo with a fixed price and was able to sell it within eight month for $650. Two words .io domains will sell if the key words are good.
