    What is your evaluation technique when it comes to a domain name?

    What all factors do you consider and which is the top priority?

    Good question.......

    Loads of variables - a few below from my perspective when regging or buying a name (in no particular order)

    The sector, it's current value and future growth potential
    Is it popular (trending) or a long term hold
    past sales history of keywords
    Search volume of keywords
    The extension
    Brandabilty
    Some people might use an appraisal tool to benchmark against (rightly or wrongly :xf.smile: )
    Checking out similar listings on marketplaces
    Using the good old fashion "hunch"

    I use a few of the above, but not all of them all the time....

    Domain keyword, Traffic rank, Google rank, Page view per hour, revenue from the business model.

    Google the domain, if there are lots of companies using the name and it's not TM, then it's most likely good.

    I think someone registered DomainHunch.com after reading your comment. I was going to otherwise.

    A combination of comps, the roesener equation and experience. The first two get me the ballpark value but experience will let me narrow it down.

    If I see a company having hyphen or longer than i expect keywords.I go for it and wait.I also see some add unncessarry words after keywords making it hard to remember .I make mine shorter.I make sure i own the .com as it adds more value to my name even if its taking in other country extension.This is why we see some names sell so high and we dont understand why.

    Develop your own portfolio by researching and buying to hold long term,lots of undervalued names out there.Dont forget ,be patient the buyers are watching as you adjust your prices.

    Google,bing and other places to research.The opportunities abound.

    A lot of things matter. You can check some of those terms on evaluation websites . That evaluate for free.
    It also up to you how to present your website if its established.
