    Creative domain usage vs creative domain value

    Originally posted by Kidkool:

    What you are describing is not a new perspective. It's actually always been very common among "new" domainers of any time period.

    The problem with the mindset you are referring to is that you are confusing a domain's inherent value with created value. Made up type names are worthless just as names alone. The value with those names only comes after they have been developed for several years into hugely popular entities. The fact that younger people accept sites that use non generic names should not be interpreted as though those same people would be willing to pay a premium for those names...now or in the future. If a name is non generic or non descriptive...it's too easy to come up with a similar domain at reg fee.

    Yes, it's true that times change, but there are timeless truths which do not change along with them.

    One of them is supply and demand. For a name like "carparts.com" there are only one or two names like carparts.com maybe autoparts.com and a couple of others that are the specific actual terms used to describe that line of product. Therefore there is a limited supply for those in that business to compete for. For made up type names there is no end to the number of oddball or clever names that could be thought up or branded. As such the supply is endless, and the value for those names, nothing.

    Of course one can think of a good made up name, brand it and the site could be hugely successful. In fact it may even be smarter to go with something creative and clever....but those types of names have no "inherent" value.

    Wow safesys can't believe I missed kidkools outtake

    So my sales past 12 months at about 30k - 40k for around 10 names is all in my mind ( I gotta stop responding to those emails)

    As it is I ignore two thirds

    In fairness to kidkool, I don't consider myself a novice. first registration back in 1999-2000 but nothing wrong with good WordArt and that is still there to be had today.

    It can be lucrative, no doubt.

    But it is a long shot.

    Thing is, generic names have domainer-to-domainer value, vanity names basically do not.

    doughmein I couldn't help that last post

    Vanity names only talk to one person (usually the registrant)

    Your one of several misguided fools that seem to think results (and trying to be helpful) must be drug related.

    For you and the rest of those that wouldn't /couldn't understand simple ability -- go crack yourself -- It's obviously where you feel most comfortable and at home - by all means tell me how it works and for you -- your a wonderful example of "say no to drugs"

    Please reframe from responding to my posts - or join the insulting wankers: you qualify so well.

    I've bit my tongue listening to your insults - lets hope one day you'll have something worthwhile to say

    I don't understand what you're asking - but whatever it is, posting 3 times in 3 minutes doesn't seem a smart way to go about asking.
    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info

    Hi cool_fp, I think they are discussing about domain name that is made up of conventional language vs creative domain name that use unknown language.
