I think if you hold on to the domain until u get the right buyer u could fetch a decent price.
How much exactly, I'm not sure.
I also have to South African related domains. Gauteng.online and SouthAfrican.online. very brand-able and one would think they would be fast sellers but unfortunately not. I know it would fetch the right price to the right seller so I'm going to wait it out. Which is why I recommend you do the same, wait it out until u get the price you want. (on condition ur price expectations is reasonable)
Indeed. Recent example: http://www.internetnews.me/2016/04/29/centralnic-sunsetting-several-sld-extensions/- The control of a subdomain is limited. The provider can decide to stop offering subdomains at anytime, the domain or company can be sold to someone with other plans for development etc.
Subdomains have not received any interest from reseller and end-users. Using a subdomain is associated with several drawbacks. Some of the major ones are:
- The control of a subdomain is limited. The provider can decide to stop offering subdomains at anytime, the domain or company can be sold to someone with other plans for development etc.
- Users will probably try out the domain as sudafrica dot com or sud-africa dot com.
- More complicated things, for example, SSL, customized DNS settings etc. will not always be possible.
All in all, using subdomains for any serious and/or long term project is not a good idea.
