    I wish it would be true, I personally love the hyphens. But as we all know they can't work:

    - Losing traffic to non hyphenated
    - hard to write on a mobile phone (!! this was the deal breaker for me)
    - culturally not accepted in the US (I read somewhere in Japan its culturally acceptable) - same reason why .com always rules :)

    No, not all of us know this. I certainly don't, because hyphenated domains sell pretty well for me.

    You really should be careful to say things like "as we all know". Especially when you joined Namepros today!

    Sorry to ask this here
    Is it advisable to register a domain name you intend to sell with those hosting registrars offering free domain registration with an hosting plan?

    Weird, sure, everyone might be reporting hyphenated sales here, but can any one of you guys give me a single hyphenated website that you use on a daily/weekly basis? I suspect the buyers either simply already had a business going, and a hyphen is a lot more worth it than a rebranding, or for SEO purposes.

    Nice website :) I still believe hyphens make a large minority of successful websites. While a 2-word .com could be worth hundreds of thousands, a hyphen instantly slashes the price <~50k, no matter how good it is. It's a 2nd choice, a downgrade. Hand registering these will be a gamble, even with the greatest names, because if the buyer can afford the non-hyphen, they will get it instead.

    Hyphenated domains do well in Europe, lots of businesses in UK and Germany prefer to use the hyphen to separate the two word domain

    Thank you. Three good examples of what not to register.

    In the uk? They don't even like .com. I'm not a .co.uk expert but I find that claim hard to believe.

    I'm in the UK and we definitely prefer co.uk

    I personally come across a few hyphenated co.uk domains when I'm searching for sites, not huge amounts but a steady trickle....

    Don't you get tired of spewing the same old sh1t. They are no better or worse than any other names published here. Give it a rest and just put me on ignore so you are not troubled by my postings.

    If I can stop only one newbie from thinking those are good domain names, then all my "spewing" will be worth the effort.
