    I sell .US all the time. They key is you need amazing brands, keywords, etc.

    I would not suggest someone just starts buying .US (or any other secondary extension) unless they really know what they are doing.

    I have .us names like bidders.us, zonal.us, diagrams.us, soapy.us, SideEffect.us, MegaPrize.us and many more like these, yet never received a single offer.

    for .us, always choose single word with potential end users who using .com. Depends on who the end user is, if they care about their brand, they might pay for the .us name.

    I sold 3 .us names last year, sold price $6000, $1000 and $1000

    I dont agree people say .us doesn't have future. great single word us names still have potential but need time and patience. Think about how big the population in US is, the digitization rate of businesses still low. If small biz cannot afford single word .com, then single word .us will be a choice.

    Long story short, two types of buyers will be likely to purchase your .us name:

    1), rich end users who own the .com, they buy your .us for brand protection purpose
    2), small USA based business who cannot afford the .com

    If you price your .us name at $500 or $1000 each, it has big potentials.

    I don;t agree with people say shorter domains be with more potentials. I believe length should not the one we have to care, but meaning is.

    many people invest in 3 letter .us domains, and I think that's wrong approach.

    I also suggest ppl to be more proactively turn the .us names into website to sell something. it might be better to just wait for domain sales
