Labeled as domain in Domain Appraisal started by OnlineDomainShop, Sep 9, 2019.
There is a very high chance of a UDRP.
It only takes a person with the exact name or rights to a brand with a similar name to file a complaint.
I wouldn't bother holding this type of domain.
As for the $240K from the automated appraisal tool, their appraisal system is useless.

Thanks for the input
You would have to seek permission from the below organisation to set up a fan/tribute page by the look of it.......
Yes i looked into it , I think they will never allow to build anything on LouisArmstrong.com , I currently removed everything from the domain never listed for sale on any site , Also , there is an airport named Louis Armstrong , still names has chances of UDRP if developed without permission , will look into this foundation link for more information. Thanks.
Yeah looks like UDRP to me.
IMHO it may be worth sending an email to the organization mentioning you are a fan and secured the domain for a tribute page and to make sure the domain is not picked up by someone with ill-intentions to profit. Request info about the process and if they're open to you creating a tribute page- you may get the green light, else they may want the domain in their portfolio.
Coming forward as a potential ally may yield you an offer between the UDRP cost of $1.5k and $5k just to turn it over to them with ease.
Don't be a puss like many here (fear based action/inaction). How? Some ideas..
- Add 'Louis' and 'Armstrong' as legal middle names
- set up 1 pg website, eg a good WordPress 'coming soon' plugin/ template, like you see on lambo (dotcom). 'Unofficial Louis Armstrong Tribute' is what you'd build, put in a nice video to one of his songs, "friends shaking hands saying, how do you do".
- forward to the linkedin pg for all people called Louis Armstrong on LinkedIn
Oh yeh, one more thing.
Proceed confidently in your ownership of a generic name, albeit one of relative infamy.
Easy advice to give when you won't be the one potentially getting in the sh*t....
Fear, called it in my post.
Many like this won't even have made significant profits or possess names of desirable calibre from those who do lash out via UDRP sometimes
It is not fear or lashing out....
It is caution on my part not giving advice that could potentially land someone in a lot of trouble.
The original question the OP asked........
"Can i build a one page tribute website on it with some adsense ads ? Search results + searches are very high,"
Try to sell it directly to Mr. Louis Armstrong.
Groucho.com sold on Sedo for $2550 in 2011. https://namebio.com/groucho.com
For years before that it was a non-commercial site quoting a famous Marx Brothers reply to Warner Brothers about infringement. You can see that here: http://web.archive.org/web/20100105231159/http://www.groucho.com/
