Domain Name Goldrush

Posted on: October 7, 2008

 

Gold Rush!!

Gold Rush!!

I have been looking through available domain names lately and I have noticed that nearly every simple phrase has been bought up in bulk.  Any site that exists seems to have been bought up with the word top in front of it, and any word in the dictionary is purchased.  Common items that people actually buy or search for have been bought up in any possibly attractive combination of words.

 

 

In short.. Anything you would actually use is either hard to find, or you will end up buying it as an aftermarket domain name off of someone.  

 

I am opening comments up on this one…. enjoy.

What domain would you buy if you could have ANYTHING. (if nothing was already taken)

I would buy up basic words with high traffic and markup. As bad as it sounds, I bet you sites like car.com make a ton of money.

Just recently I had an idea for a very local joke site. But all the various combinations I tried have been bought and are parked. So I’d need a bit of cash to buy and then manage the site or sites. It’s a bit of a bummer, as it is something I would have nurtured with low investments for a while.

So unlike Dan, I wouldn’t go for a generic word and I would have actually built the site to go with it.

I think your right Mike. If you are going to have a good name definitely make a site out of it. The intention of having something like car.com would be to get the high traffic and to do something with it. Adwords alone would make the site a hard one to want to give up. You would definitely be able to sell a banner on that site as well. A blog about cars would be interesting to do!

Seems that EVERYTHING is taken. Just buy a .mobi or .cc and get what you want

I think if you could find a name that can be used as anagram for your site it may draw a little more traffic. Example – car.com could be a site for – Catholics and Religion – sorry but it was the first thing that I thought of that fit. You can use a site for anything as long as your imagination can conceive it.

I agree, anagrams always make things easier to remember. Look at SEO for example!

You’d better believe I’d buy a basic word. Any basic word.

Last month Printer.com was sold for $800.000. Earlier this year fund.com for (drum roll) $9,999,950. Credit crunch? What credit crunch?

The days of finding a $9 domain name with that potential are long gone. But there are lots of good and reasonably priced names out there.
