What is a ‘Premium Domain’?
On the Internet, your domain name is critical to your success. Possessing a short, memorable domain name can be a great investment. But such names are in scarce supply.
Like real estate, most of these prime properties are already owned. Based on the laws of supply and demand, these coveted domain names are sold for a premium. The branding value of such domain names is well worth the cost.
How do I estimate the value of a domain?
Domain names, like other commodities are valued based on supply and demand. The average selling price of a premium domain name is currently greater than $20,000. Domain names are a finite resource and acquire greater value as more and more businesses make claims on the properties. Unlike real estate, these properties do not require maintenance.
Some factors that influence the ultimate price paid for a domain name:
- the domain name’s volume of “natural” traffic
- the number of interested buyers, and
- the intrinsic quality of the domain name based on criteria such as: the number of characters in the domain name, the inclusion of search terms, and the degree to which the domain name lends itself to branding.
Several online utilities may be used to estimate the value of a domain name.
How do I use a Domain Name Rating System?
EstiBot.com is a good example of a rating utility.
Simply type the name of the domain name in question and an estimate will be generated. Of course, market prices will fluctuate.
What is Type-In Traffic?
“Type-in traffic” is a term describing visitors landing at a web site by entering a domain name in the web browser’s address bar. Type-in traffic is also known as “direct navigation”.
