    I won Awakeners.Com on Godaddy Auctions for $709. The domain is about 15 years old. Is one word plural.

    The domain is not take in more than 5 tlds, but is still one plural. Also Awakened.com went for $15k.

    Do you think investing $710 on this domain is a mistake? What are my options here?

    It's not really a real word.. if you want to do something with it and make it yours (eg. develop), that's where the gold might be. But otherwise, I don't see value in the name in terms of investing. If that's what you were asking.

    They’re saying it would easily go for $1k+ in case of an end user

    I believe this domain will not sell for more than 1K. So it's either your money back, or a little profit.

    Too long and not really having a good flow.

    You may have overspent here. The trick is to buy domains that land 4-fig for sure if you invest that much, or be a fast sale. This is neither.

    Good luck with your sale

    I can already see the promotional campaign in the form of the Avengers pastiche. ;)
    The problem is that it's a very narrow niche so it will be hard to sell. :(

    Agreed. The main problem is not necessarily the name itself, but rather that it will likely cater to a small audience.

    domain only.... in the range of the actual sale


    A brand name for a team of people with many platforms?

    This hypothetical would pay 5k to 25k....a long shot.

    Thank you for your views!

    conclusion: I think it’s more of risky investment rather a mistake, I think, I should sit on it for sometime.

    I personally don't think so. If you pay $700 for a domain that you can, maybe, sell for low $xxxx, that's a mistake.

    Of course, some people think you can sell it for more in which case it would be worth it but I just think the chance of a sale is really slim because it's such an unused, specific word.

    Being a dictionary word (if that's actually a word) doesn't automatically make a domain valuable. In fact, most dictionary words are trash.

    I have not heard of Vivarin, but it appears to be similar.
    The reason I mentioned No-Doz is because it is actually marketed as an 'awakener'.

    Well, if its about a personal appraisal you picked the wrong section of the forum.

    But from what I feel, there are tons of plural English words that are either sitting idle or, just lacking interest. I don't feel Awakeners.com is worth $709 if we are speaking of an investor-to-investor sale. Its certainly overpaid for, you should never get carried away in an auction I look back into the past and feel how I overpaid for some of my names. But unfortunately one has to accept that and move on.

    You ideally shouldn't pickup odd names for more than $50 if they are worth > $2600 (in terms of GD value). It's worth $40-60 max if we are speaking of liquid value being old and a plural word.

    Cheers

    If I was you - I'd at least float the name to JP Sears


    His AwakenwithJP channel is fantastic . . .
