Thanks

-$10. $10 for the opportunity cost of the time wasted to register the domain.

Hi Toni,

So this is how it usually goes:


1. you ask for appraisal for an obviously worthless domain

2. People who have an opinion worth listening too, take the time out of their day to explain in logical terms why it is obviously worthless, and because its such a stupid domain the "appraisers" can't but help to ridicule you

3. You then argue with these people because you didn't hear what you wanted to hear and of course your pride is hurt

So why don't we do this a different way, you say in logical terms why you think your domain has any value..

Re: hó.tel - Icelandic IDN Domain Hack

lol, my pride can't be hurt by opinions, I might be a newby in your forum and to IDNs but not in domaining, give me a chance to learn

#1 is not yet obvious to me since #2 has not yet done, and don't worry about #3 I won't fight back

Looking for more opinions - good or bad

A couple of ways to figure it out.

1]

Tld-wise, it's worth about the same or a tad higher than hó.name

Add 10 percent because hó is a generic.

Subtract 10 percent because Hungarian IDNs have very low resale value atm.

Add 10 percent for the hack value [short-term, as hacked domains are on the decline and only popular amongst the domain crowd]]

Add another 10 percent for it being a two-worder, thus a rare domain.

Add another 10 percent for it can have multiple meanings. [ besides plain 'hotel', it can also mean a 'hotel for ho's' and it can flurish as a telephone directory for ho's ]

Deduct 5 percent for the potential adult nature of the domain hack [see above].

Conclusion

Given that no-one has bothered to register hó.name as of yet, it pretty much leaves you with nothing or a few pennies [ U.S,] for your investment.

2]

Offer to push it for free to any member's account here.

Wait for a year...

If it gets renewed for another year, it is worth at least reg fee and you just saved yourself another 10.99

If not, you're out on;y 10.99. Consider yourself lucky.

3]

Delete for credit.

If it stays unregistered, you're only out a buck-fifty [ or whatever DD charges for returns nowadays]

If it gets snapped by some enterprising domain dude, offer to sell him tons more of similar or better quality for less than 59 bucks each. [You've just unlocked a brand new business opportunity, albeit short-lived, because even the biggest sucker will eventually figure your business plan out.]

I would go for option 3.

Check your pm for appraisal fee information.
