    Would luv to help/comment, but I parted company with the new gTLD domain market six months ago. I'm pretty good with names, at least that's what I'm told...wink:xf.wink:wink:xf.wink:.

    Here's an example of a "catchy" domain I plan to register that was previously reg'd continually from 2000 to 2015, then dropped;

    WinkTown:xf.wink:Com

    note the "wink" in "pink" .....catchy? I don't know, but i think so:xf.smile:

    Here's the real question, lets assume for a moment you just bought this domain and like me you think it's "catchy".How would you go about monetizing it? There seem to be a lot of "catchy" names just gathering dust with no real plan as to how to sell them. It seems if we're creative enough to reg/buy the names, we should be creative enough to sell them for a profit. Any ideas beyond the traditional, list them with the likes of Afternic, Sedo, Uniregistry etc. and hope and pray someone finds them?

    And thanks for your reply to my reply:xf.wink:.....sooooo much BS:xf.grin: (coming from me). I noticed from your bio you're a young man of 54? I left that station almost 20 years ago, but I feel like a kid playing the domain game. It use to be "sex" would POP into my head:xf.rolleyes: dozens of times a day, now it's domains:xf.frown: A doctor friend of mine from India has written a paper titled, "Laughter is Like a Mini Vacation". Basically he says, when you're laughing nothing hurts, and it's a type of euphoria sort of like an orgasm. He says Nirvana would be laughing during orgasm, but he doesn't know of anyone who has achieved that pinnacle:xf.eek:

    Thanks again!

    I like identitytheft.id. However, unless you know specifically how to monetize it or develop it, it's of little value:xf.frown:. I mentioned when I first joined NP a couple of years ago, I loved all the new gTLD's because for me, they gave a domain a new dimension and added value....or so I thought. I owned domains like FreePizza.Today and Payday.Loans. "Catchy"....sure, but outside of you, me and domainers, few people understand them. One of the first domains like this I saw, PingPong.gives (a charity/benefit for Ping Pong), I thought, how cool:xf.cool: Now keep in mind I was 70 years old young, and I'd named and ran dozens of businesses in my lifetime and a name like "Payday Loans" would have been a great name if I were to be in that business. I also owned a bunch of .golf domains that I thought were way cool, but when Donuts, the registry that owned the .golf extension reneged on working with me to sell their domains I decided it was time to throw in the towel. The very same thing happened with about a hundred .homes domains that I owned and still own, but when the registry for .homes, Dominion Domains, who are right here in my hometown wouldn't work with me, I lost all respect for this seriously screwed up industry:xf.rolleyes:

    I know what is it pretty well. That's why i i posted here as 'catchy'. As you know, it represents the vowel listing pattern without U., ie only premium vowels a, e, i and o. Starts and ends with A. Very easy to remember and only 5L. Already received a couple of offers.

    JustCandy is pretty cool.
    I really like PopTalk...it sounds like the Title for a TV show. but has other uses as well. Good Luck!

    Here's my latest "catch"....6ixSticks.com. It sort of goes hand in hand with the brand 9Time™ in that it's a new game involving golf where you can use just "six" sticks/clubs. For anyone who follows golf, there's a company with a very "catchy" name; ShipSticks.com that advertises on TV that it ships golf clubs around the world cheaper, faster and safer than the airlines. They've carved out an interesting niche about 7-8 years ago, and they're hitting it out of the park.

    You may want to consider picking up Squeekee.com that's available for reg fee. I just renewed one that I picked up this time last year;

    HalfHash.com.....sort of sounds like HalfAss:xf.rolleyes:

    Hash - a drug, illegal in many countries, made from the cannabis plant and usually smoked:xf.wink:

    Thanks for sharing!
