上海酒店.com (Shanghai Hotel)

Shanghai is China's largest city, and "上海酒店" gets over a million google results and 26 US overture. I think one of the members here owns the .net version.

How much do you think I could sell this domain for now, and how much in a few years time?

Thanks,
Ben.

Re: 上海酒店.com (Shanghai Hotel)

In my eyes I think of popular hot spot hotel names as what they would sell for in English.
Before there was only English domains but now hotels can have more targetted campaign websites.

If you sell now probably $3,000 to $7,000 (if it's the most common way to write shanghai hotel)

I think if a hotel buys it probably more. Ranking number 1 for Shanghai Hotel & just buying the top domain is better.

Each search in Overture converts to an average of $500 to $1000 being spent on a hotel. People looking for hotels most likely will stay at one so conversions are very high.

I own the Japanese for Shanghai Hotel dot jp too, good buy.

Re: 上海酒店.com (Shanghai Hotel)

Thanks for the appraisal Olney, I do think this is the most common way to write "Shanghai hotel(s)".

I might try contacting some end-users, any idea of how I should do this (considering I don't know Chinese)? Or should I wait for them to come to me?..

Re: 上海酒店.com (Shanghai Hotel)

Ben,

Try this:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...el&btnG=Search

These are all the English language sites dealing in or with Shanghai Hotels.
Though you might have to explain all about IDN's and the relevance to their business. And, most of them will probably be aiming for foreign tourist types and dont want/need a Chinese name
Maybe worth a try....

Alternatively google your term in Chinese, draft an email and ask or pay someone to translate it into Chinese for you.

Collect 50 email addresses (If you can find them on the sites) and email them all.
A few hours work and if one bites a better price for your name is guaranteed...

Re: 上海酒店.com (Shanghai Hotel)

Nice domain, but maybe another idn that will require time to mature in value. You might find current value only $500 to $2000, but market will dictate if you decide to put up for sale or auction.

Current sales offers here at IDNF were some outstanding Japanese prefecture .coms-hotel combinations put up for sale by Rubber Duck with $1k reserve on each that I don't think had any sales action, so that is why I give you a conservative current price.

This should only be factored in if this is only domainer to domainer action , with the right end users he could fetch a pretty penny for it IMO , but on the forum i understand were Bill is coming from

Agreed, my comment is based on what is going on at the moment. I would definately say hold domain for a year or two and get the bigger $$$. Although selling it now and buying 100 - 200 more idns with the money is not necessarily a a bad move either!

Re: 上海酒店.com (Shanghai Hotel)

Dave's hotels is a huge bargain.
I already have most of them in jps (had them before)
If I wasn't in the middle of having programmers working on 2 pieces of software I would have bought them.
When they do sell I don't think it will be close to that price.
I think Dave was just making extra holiday cash. He gots about 3,930 more domains he can afford to let some go cheap.

Sakilll- why do you think maybe this domain could be low-priced in the future?
Unless idns "don't happen", I think their is a market ready and waiting that in many cases (this domain being a good example) will parallel ascii domains in quality, usefulness, demand and value.
