    Hey Guys,

    i would like to know if there is any data available where you can find out comparison of past sales between the hyphenated .com and non hyphenated .net , the same 2 Word Domain of course. And i would like to know your opinion which one is better and why.

    For instance
    Mobile-Phone.com
    MobilePhone.net

    Which one?

    I'd probably take the .com 99% of the time. I just sold a hyphenated .com for x,xxx. I don't like .net that much since I can never sell them!

    I especially like hyphenated domains that have the same amount(or close to) of letters on each side like Mobile-Phone.

    Hyphens are bad guys, stay away from them ;)

    I love hypen domains because you can usually find some great keyword domains available to reg or even buy them for cheap on the aftermarket.

    I draw the line at one hyphen though. I have no interest in domains like keyword-keyword-keyword.com.

    I have another hyphen domain at the moment that I'm negotiating on for high xxx(bought on the Godaddy closeouts for low xx).

    Nice sale man! I had Home-Loans-Online *Com* and couldn't give it away. I don't think it's that bad of a name but I ended up selling it here for cheap.

    Thanks for the great list.
    I personally like hyphens (maybe because i am in Germany and they are much more popular here - as you can also see in your list, some german names are in that list).

    The question is the approx. price of the SAME domain compared between .net (without hyphen) and .com (with hyphen).

    An example from your list:

    Luxury-Hotels.com Sold $17.500
    LuxuryHotels.net Sold $3.917 (2006)

    Or

    Online-Lotto.com Sold $2.000
    LottoOnline.net Sold $1.688
    (Ok this one is a little different, but almost same domain)

    I have to find more domains to compare. Impossible with only few domains.

    I'm sensing the tendencies are for Hyphenated.com than Non-H.net also.
