    I evaluated a nice sounding brandable domain asset today and didn't see a specific topic of discussion or showcase for it, so I decided to start one.
    Full Evaluation - VIP/Gold Only

    Do you own any short-word + "STER" brandable domain assets?

    YucSter.com lol (YUC=Young Urban Creatives aka Yuccie)

    The Hipster has been replaced by the Yuccie.

    Yuccie + Hipster = YucSter.com? lol

    TBH I think we're not seeing anything special built on a "ster" branded ending is because it sounds just plain juvenile or gimmicky. Something akin to a nickname for a kid or a high-school pal. Perhaps blog-worthy. The only thing coming to mind that would really work (although not limited to) is "hipster", but even that one in the .com isn't developed or resolves.

    Not saying it can't work, but to work it really has to, work. The "ster" should flow smoothly. Out of the list, chemster and dealster seem ok. Seems those past sales were snatched mostly on speculation (nothing wrong with that), but seeing higher than $xxx on a "ster" ending sale would be surprising. It would have to be a stellar combination, like "hipster". There's a reason to make page 1, its because only a few might really work. Of course, with the right content and product, even terrible names can be successful.

    Out of the list, three are developed, out of the three, one looks legit.The rest either don't resolve, or go to landers.

    Actually not bad :) my faith is restored

    Exactly!

    To add to this topic, in general:
    Most the good combinations were taken years ago that mean something today. There was an influx of Ster registrations when Dotster launched, but then, there is usually a spike in interest every time a big marketing capital brand gives exposure to the "Ster" usage. Every few years maybe, sometimes a decade.

    The trick now is to figure out which market is going to shift, be absorbed, replaced, or expanded on. Using that, we might find some reg fee assets that have long-hold potential, for future markets.

    But then, that's what domain asset investing is all about. Bullseye Speculations! Not random grabs!

    There are seriously good ones like speedster, namester, bookster, topster, funster, techster etc. that I wouldn't mind owning and would launch a serious project without hesitation.

    You can't go overly creative. -ster suffix is good in combo with a popular noun.

    "a suffix used in forming nouns, often derogatory, referring especially to occupation, habit, orassociation: gamester; songster; trickster."

    Using with past tense verb, an acronym, a name is a stretch.

    It's funny... This all started out as an interesting evaluation, which spawned a discussion, and wouldn't you know it, I just couldn't stop myself from registering one.

    As some already know, the majority of good 3 and 4 letter dictionary words in this combination are already gone.

    I actually found a 3-letter dictionary word available and almost passed on it due to the negative connotation, which most brands avoid, but can sometimes manipulate into a positive.

    New Reg: Lagster.com

    Defining Lag:
    Source

    See what I mean about negative connotation? That might be hard to spin, but I couldn't stop myself from getting it due to the amount of 3-letter-dictionary-word + Ster gone.

    Might have been a bad investment, but then, I haven't really researched it yet. I'll check for acronyms of lag and a few other things later, probably, to get a better idea of scope and direction.

    Well, maybe there is a way to put a spin.

    https://www.gamespot.com/lagsters/

    Seems, plural is being used as a ... racing game. You buy upgrades to compete. So "lagster/com" could be for those who are slow (a lagster) who wants to become a speedster ))

    My best one is Rentster(.)com.

    I think not really always noun+ster, example, the coolest ster name/site: coolster.com ....

    btw, I checked some >4L words, like RhinoSter(listed at BRoot)...also, socialster is even longer which gone at 2004, and of course cloudster gone at 2000...

    I have one name on my mind now...hesitate to reg it ..

    I am not too keen on -ster. However, I think strong short keywords like shop, book etc are the way to go.

    On the other hand, I think -star is way better than -ster both in meaning and in brandability.

    I have zero -star or -ster names.

    I wouldn't compare star and ster. +star makes it word+word, -ster just creates new word.

    Does a 2 or 3 letter acronym + ster count?

    Cheers

    Not in the mood for handregging nowadays but the -ster suffix is really nice. A domaining article that talks about brands that end with -ster: click here
    Some available -sters:
    Axister.com
    Disguster.com
    Supester.com
    Vacaster.com
    Hypnoster.com
    Fruister.com
    Secuster.com
    Tidester.com

    Disclaimer: showing some available names doesn't necessarily mean that I encourage regging any of them.

    It might not be a word but as a suffix, it still means something.

    The -ster thing doesnt pass the radio test. Except one developed with agressive advertising, most users will opt for the -star suffix during type-ins
