    I never buy hyphenated domains unless a hosting customer wants me to buy them one. Having said that, I am sure that later today we will read about how some hyphenated domain just sold for $XX,XXX. :-P

    The germans prefer the domain names to be hyphenated.

    Anyone that defends hyphen domains just can't accept the face that the superior singular and even (plural) domain is taken. Hyphen domains have sold big. no doubt, but it gives people false hope. It's just not a thing I'd bank on as a domainer to hold hyphenated names in droves.

    Agree, the percentages are small indeed.

    would never reg a 'hyphen' unless the keyterm is top notch, eg in the class of 'real-estate' or 'health-insurance'.

    I've showgirl and show-girl both in /co

    Funny thing, showgirl is compound dictionary word. But different dictionaries write it differently. Some with hyphen, some without!
    So I decided to get both.

    I've both, real-estate & united-states (this last one reserved in most extensions)
    I've to say is not enough.
    0 offers, 0 traffic, 0 interested.
    Maybe because are .club.
    For this reason I can say that yes, hyphen domains can work, but only in .com/.de and for top notch names.

    That example

    <<Cashierlessstore.com ❓

    CashierlessStore vs Cashierless-Store>>

    I'm not sure helps, because neither is so great - the triple consonant versus the hyphen. (And Cashierlessstore.com is the same as CashierlessStore.com of course.)

    If a domain is dominated by another niche and you have a use for it with an entirely different niche market.

    For example:
    - You are awesome at baking cream pies and you want to make a recipe website centered around cream pies.
    - Creampie is a porn website.
    - Creampies is a porn website.
    - Cream-pie is available.

    You have a dominating domain in your niche because the best versions are used in an alternative way that does not compete with your delicious cream pie recipes.

    PS. I am not trying to be vulgar or funny, this is the only example I could think of at the moment. I hope it isn't taken badly and just gets my point across. Thanks.
