Please appraise it.
As a developer and server admin, this throws me off and feels cheap. Keep in mind that most of the "cloud" style players arent dealing with the word cloud unless selling to naive enterprise, executives, and news outlets. Its a trend-word like "web 2.0" that doesnt really exist in technical realms, as the cloud is merely a server or servers, just as it has been since the late 80's. And additionally, 99% of the cloud hosts/houses dont use the word cloud in their name. So IMO at most you have an aggregation or onboarding domain.
Wouldnt necessarily say get the reg, but you will have very a hard time pushing this on a highly technical community of DevOPs or IT buyer style people.
Agree with your sentiments. Additionally I hate it being called by a singular word as if it's one big thing "the cloud".
Sure techies won't use it, however it is a trend word, and by the fact that is used by the media and commercial outlets means such names can have commercial value.
On face value I'd say "very good" implies a subpar level of quality - why shouldn't I use "amazing" or "premium" cloud services etc? That said, if the term is used in a brandable way I can see the implications of low quality being entirely lost in brand fluff.
Given some time visible on auction sites I'd say 3 figures, maybe more in fact as it could be a bigger player wanting to brand.
I'd keep this one for a few years on a make offer basis.
Just my opinion of course
Any other appraisal about this name?
