    I have no idea what are you talking about and you don't either. Satellite internet is what countless people use in their daily lives and they call it satellite internet, of course. "Internet satellite" does have a meaning, but very niche and industry-specific – since most telecom satellites are not "internet only".

    [​IMG]
    If you look into these "internet satellite" results, most of search results are going to be coincidental, like

    – these words are not being used as a word combination here.

    It is not wrong not to know something, but how about doing a google check before starting to argue?

    @Don Gondon Silly me, there I am only listening to people at the university(ies), what is said in business, what is in the press and forums, but then again all this could be wrong, and therefore should you and I both invest in our separate views you will make a greater profit than me, and I will be happy for you. (y)

    In the meantime I still prefer 'internet-satellite' and you prefer 'satellite-internet' (I own neither and don't intend to either), does it really change the world whichever we prefer or indeed what 'Google' reports as search results. (Americans pronounce the letter 'z' as 'zee' whilst we British correctly pronounce it as 'zed' - though the latter is changing because of the evolution to ever more Americanism of the English language, but does it really matter? No, we just have to become accustomed to it.)

    As it is I thank you for educating me on this fact - I will undoubtedly refer to it in future as like all language it is important not to be blinded by individual prejudices or misconceptions.

    As an aside, to those very few people who might be interested (if there are any that is (n) ), I remember reading a paper some years ago that actually explained why the American pronunciation of the letter 'z' as 'zee' was becoming more prevalent in the English language within the UK. It seemingly is all down to the TV program 'Sesame Street' and how many young children in the 80's and '90's learned their alphabet - by watching TV ! Damn it, that Big Bird and the other characters on that show have a lot to answer for. :xf.frown::xf.eek::ROFL:

    I had my eyes on this one, hoping it will fly under the radar. When the price started hiking up, I crawled back to my cave with my tail firmly between my legs:xf.cry:

    Here is an interesting bit of background intel on the subject.

    The member @Robbie has put up a post ( https://www.namepros.com/threads/domains-owned-by-the-castello-brothers-inc.1194758/ ) linking to his blog and concerning the domains that are owned by the David and Michael Castello (not exactly newbies to the domaining game :xf.wink:).

    I have gone through the list to see if there was anything of interest, and the immediate thing that jumps out is the number of hyphened domains they own. (It should be stressed that from the list the unhyphenated are far more numerous than the hyphenated domains, but I think the results would surprise many.)

    Firstly, the hyphened domains the Castello brothers own where they also own the exact same unhyphenated domains:

    apache-junction.com
    baracoa-cuba.com
    canoga-park.com
    cathedral-city.com
    david-castello.com
    delray-beach.com
    golf-club.com
    hobe-sound.com
    huatulco-mexico.com
    island-of-youth.com
    isle-of-youth.com
    jessica-michelle.com
    jibaco-cuba.com
    jupiter-island.com
    merritt-island.com
    miami-design-district.com
    michael-seven.com
    palm-canyon-drive.com
    palm-spring.com
    singer-island.com
    viti-levu.com

    Now the list of hyphenated domains where the Castello brothers do not own the unhyphenated domain:

    augusta-georgia.com
    basse-terre.com
    belize-city.com
    berkeley-california.com
    berlin-germany.com
    bonnie-parker.com
    boynton-beach.com
    buena-park.com
    cayo-coco.com
    culver-city.com
    fort-pierce.com
    glen-cove.com
    hermosa-beach.com
    indian-creek-florida.com
    isla-de-la-juventud.com
    isla-vista.com
    jensen-beach.com
    juno-beach.com
    la-habana.com
    lake-havasu.com
    lake-louise.com
    lake-placis.com
    lake-worth.com
    long-beach.com

    ocean-ridge.com
    ontario-california.com
    orlando-golf.com
    osaka-japan.com
    pacific-palisades.com
    palm-beach-gardens.com
    palm-city.com
    palm-desert.com
    palm-springs-california.com
    palm-springs-golf.com
    palm-springs-real-estate.com
    palos-verdes.com
    panama-beach.com
    park-city.com
    parma-italy.com
    pearl-harbour.com
    raliegh-north-carolina.com
    rancho-cucamonga.com
    rancho-mirage.com
    riviera-beach.com
    san-francisco-california.com
    santa-monica-california.com
    satellite-beach.com
    Sonoma-valley.com
    stamp-collector.com
    studio-city.com
    sun-city.com
    surf-city.com
    universal-city.com
    venice-california.com
    ventura-california.com
    white-plains.com
    wild-west.com
    winter-haven.com

    Look at the number of hyphened Geo's in the list, amazing.

    Just thought this might be some good background information for everyone.

    I registered El-Monte.com recently (as part of a bundle of large hyphenated US cities), it is in California with a population of circa. 115,000. Doing checks on the unhyphenated domains I found that the ElMonte,com redirects to ElMonteRV.com. Suddenly my domain, IMO, became the most valuable 'El Monte' domain available.

    A nice juicy hand reg as far as I am concerned, and I might very soon be advertising it for sale in the area. :xf.smile:

    Thank you for these figures...it gives me some hope for the future. Not high prices but not the best examples apart from food-safety which is probably worth more.

    I will keep on looking out for your posts.
