    Oh.....wait a second....so you have the qualifications to speak on their behalf? I'm honestly almost falling out of my chair right now:ROFL:.


    You've basically answered one of the most basic reasons why large companies buy premium generic domain names in the first place.


    Take a moment read what you said out loud to yourself and check out this post from DomainSherpa.com.

    One more thing. It's wrong compare a Smart Clock to something like Blue Shoes. Even within their own niches they are categorically different in connotation. Blue is a color, but, the word Smart expresses an entirely different meaning when paired with a noun. It's widely used as a descriptor for enhancement, especially for commercial products.

    Blue Clock is comparable in meaning to Blue Shoes, Blue TV, Blue Car, Blue PC and Blue Phone

    Smart Clock is comparable in meaning to Smart Shoes, Smart TV, Smart Car, Smart PC and Smart Phone.

    Does that mean you disagree with my comment the product is called "Thinkpad", another product is "Lenovo Smart Clock". Are you saying this is wrong?

    They rarely but these names any more because the benefits are greatly diminished compared to 20 years ago for product names. Mostly these products will be sold by large brand retailers and by Lenovo on their own site.

    I didn't even bother to assess that statement because it's quite obvious that the naming of each product is dissimilar. ThinkPad is a brandable name, the Lenovo Smart Clock is not, they are using a category descriptor to brand their product. You're are essentially asking me to refute the obvious, so that you can then use that to argue that your own conclusions are valid LMFAO:ROFL:, how laughable.


    As per your second statement.

    It's quite simple. If you want to own a category online. You buy the category killer domain. It doesn't need to be used as your customer facing brand. Large companies purchase premium generic domains brand protection, to avoid confusion and to drive traffic to their products. It's a proven model that's not going anywhere. Why on earth would Kraft foods keep a hold of Bologna.com, Dessert.com, Dinners.com, EatHealthy.com, EatingHealthy.com, HotCereal.com, Jello.com, LowFat.com, Mayonnaise.com, Pickles.com, Puddings.com, Beverages.com, CreamCheese.com, Sauces.com otherwise? They own their category online... just like they own it offline... their intention is to dominate.

    You’ve been drinking the industry kool-aid, Amazon owns most ecommerce category’s and doesn’t own such names. Wayfair is trying to sell their “category killers”. These models aren’t “proven” they are failing as companies switch from these SEO names to brands.

    Your thinking is 20 years out of date, ever considered going on the Sherpa show? They’d like you for sure.

    AI assistance is the category.

    Have you ever heard of Google Assistant? Alexa? Cortana?

    Those are all Ai Assistants. Many, many others are joining the fray as it's a rapidly developing niche.

    Vps.io ( Virtual private servers )

    Worth : I think at least High $x,xxx and up to mid 5 figures for the right buyer.

    Why ? I believe it's a professional domain, VPS fits perfectly with .io , a very good niche and a clear purpose name.

    Well I don't think this name is a "category killer" because I've never heard of the category "ai assistance". These services are always named after first names or short catchy names. The category killer names are probably John.com or Mary.com, not AIAssistant.com.

    hosting.io maybe, but vps.io is very pigeon holed.

    Is a good name but at 100k you'll put buyers off completely, they could get a one word .com for that. Suggest 5k-10k enduser.

    John.com and Mary.com are not category killer names. They are ultra premium first name domains.

    Both are in the Given Name category. They do not categorize a product or service. You don't seem to understand the term "Category Killer".

    It's absurd that you think just because you've never heard of Ai Assistants the domain AiAssistant.com can't be a categorically killer domain.......that's actually the most ridiculous thing I've heard this week hahah:ROFL:.

    Anyways, it's time you stop making this your own personal appraisal thread critiquing everyone's domains without actually having logical input. I will be reporting further comments you make that go against the premise of the thread. I will also be reporting my previous comments responding to you, thread needs to be cleaned up.

    John.com, Mary.com, these are the types of names actually used in that industry, not names like AIAssistannt.com, there is nobody in that industry who want to use this name so how can it be a category killer? What category is that name going to kill by someone using it?

    Category killer means,

    "a large store, typically one of a chain, which specializes in a particular type of discounted merchandise and becomes the dominant retailer in that category."

    Nobody is ever going to become dominant using a name like aiassiatnt.com, it's all wrong. Next you tell us with bankaccount.com you could become the world biggest bank. It is a nonsense that you are saying, almost a fart.

    Domain names
    Thanks John.

    I agree sone will use first names and it's a wise move as well :).
    As I have mentioned the name is what's Ai is all about for many so companies will want to brand around it as there is only one AiAssistant (.)com ,and others will surely want to own it without using it as a brand name .

    Many thanks for your comments!

    Yep this has quickly turned into a “show off your name, say it’s worth a crazy price and argue with/report anyone who doesn’t agree”.

    Thanks for bringing the thread back to reality llama, even if it only lasts a couple of posts.

    Great thread @Arpit131
    I would suggest not to limit it to one best name but sharing great names u think u own and hear opinions about it ,as you said remove all biases and learn from the process .

    Many thanks .

    I think it's a short catchy name, "host" is one of the most valuable keyword these days.

    You posted the definition of a category killer retailer, which is entirely different to that of a category killer domain 😁, in this case Google is not your friend, keyboard warrior.

    Given names can be branded as AI but at the same time they can be used for anything because they aren't all encompassing descriptors for a good or service.

    You ask questions that have overwhelmingly obvious answers.

    How do you know there is no one the industry that would want to use the domain? Are you magically associated with all the industry players? Do you know every senior exective working in the AI assistance industry by name? Your arrogance is astounding :ROFL:.

    BankAccount.com is not a category killer domain in the Banking niche. Banking.com or Bank.com are the killers. You don't seem to get it.

    Don't believe in your own ignorance. That will always lead to failure. It will also lead to you embarrassing yourself on a public forum.

    I won't be replying to anymore. Thread needs cleaning.

    Tbh i regret posting mine (i don’t usually post in these types of threads).

    You always get one who criticizes someone’s investments, along with typing the domain out in full (so forever shows up on search results), so in a way sort of devaluing it.

    I think there should be a rule against that personally or at least let the owner of a domain who this happens to have their domain censored out if they wish should that happen. I’ve had it done to me before, someone typing a domain i own in full along with negative comments, requested NamePros admin to censor my domain and they wouldn’t because only a person who posted can request their post to be edited.

    I personally never type a domain i don't own out in full as respect to the person that owns it.

    Plenty of reasons.
    Distracting with writing style which is difficult to read.
    Explaining and defending crappy name and that too in a poor way.
    And goes on...

    Hope you'll be professional and try to do basics right.

    And yeah... you're too free to dis/like whatever you want!
