The Domain Madness 3 auction has launched (you can see it here) and looking at the domain list there is some value in the popular $1,000-$5,000 range and also some WTF’s? in the $XX,XXX – XXX,XXX range.? Here’s my personal opinion on some of the domains listed:
Autorepairs.com $150k – the big boys in this space already have branded names (Meineke, Midas, etc…) and I can’t see a local auto repair shop dropping big bucks on a domain.? This would make a great directory website, but not sure anyone is going to drop six figures and attempt this.
ChildDevelopment.com $150k – 33k exact global monthly searches is respectable but I don’t see this coming remotely close to selling.
DomainDevelopment.com $15k – only 320 exact global searches per month…? I talk about developing domains myself, but to the rest of the world they refer to it as website development.
HoneyBellOranges.com $25k – never even heard of these until now.? Either I need to get out more or this price needs to drop.
HomeOwnerInsurance.com $120k – the term I’m familiar with is ‘home owners insurance’… that “S” makes all the difference… with the “S” = 33k exact searches per month… without the “S” = 4.4k exact searches per month.
StayCool.com $5.5k – this is a nostalgic domain (at least for me) as this was a popular term among the girls in my sixth grade class… which was oh about 20 years ago.
DoubleOven.com $6.5k – I love product name domains.? If someone is looking for a double oven then what makes more sense then doubleoven.com?? And those suckers can be expensive so if you develop this with affiliate links you could earn a nice commission per sale.
Uncoordinated.com $1k – Good name for a video site about people with two left feet.
NameGames.com $2.5k – I could see this being used for a product, decent amount of searches and with some branding you have a winner.? Don’t buy it and try to rank high in the search engines though…? 1.2 Billion results in Google.
(I do not own any of the above listed names)
My guess is that 17 of the domains will sell.
