    Hi,

    I'd like to ask if it is worth having the same word twice in a domain...
    e.g : abcabc.com ? (where 'abc' is a dictionary word)

    I'd like to gain some knowledge from you guys :)

    Thanks!

    I've had several people ask me to put together a report on this. I think it has been around nine months since I did it last time, so there have likely been some sales like this since. But here's what I found at the time ordered by price descending. Hope it helps!

    These kind of domains only look good if domain length is less than 12 char.

    Agree with Michael. These types of sales are even happening in gtlds, that means if there is a gtld called as ".protect", your domain name will gain a lot of value. Btw there is already a tld known as ".protection" but ProtectionProtection.com wouldn't work because Protection has 3 syllables and these types of domains are good for just 1-2 syllables a word and 2-4 syllables combined.
