Descriptive Domain Name Valuations
[See also: Choosing a Domain Name and Resources]
The value of descriptive domain names vary considerably. Typically the price range for a good descriptive
.com domain name is currently between $5,000 and several million USD.
Strong single word category defining names presently change hands for between 6 and 7 figures. A recent sale of Vodka.com netted the owner $3 million USD and Cameras.com raised $1.5 million USD whereas a
more niche two word name like DogFences.com recently sold for $6400 USD.
If you are looking to acquire one or more descriptive domain names we would suggest going for quality rather than quantity. Here is a
of some factors that will affect the value of a domain name.
It is our opinion that the value today of prime descriptive domain names are undervalued. Although the sales value trend for descriptive domain values is rising, we believe that as the benefits of owning these limited names becomes more widely known then the current valuations will look very low when looking back in years to come.
