Arrow Social.com - requesting appraisal

I'd like to get some appraisals from the members of this forum on the name
Social.com

This is the 6 letter dictionary word.

Some history on the name:

I registered the name in 1995. In that year, I was using the name for a web site I called the Social Cafe. The Social Cafe was Cool Site of the Day on Jun 22, 1995

In October of 2006 the name was out of my possession for a couple weeks until my Registrar at the time, Namesecure, was able to recover it. It is now at Moniker and I intend to put it up for auction in early 2007.

Your kind opinoins are appreciated!

- BlueSkies

I think your buyers will be the former rather than the latter - so less than $150,000 is my guess...and that is just a guess.

EDIT - $150,000? What was I thinking? This is a great name - you'll get a stack for it!

Good luck!

Re: Social.com - requesting appraisal

Nice Name BlueSkies and really hot right now.

I have no idea what this would fetch, a lot of money no doubt.

The only advise I can give you is if you sell it and reinvest a quarter of it in good Generic Domains in either Japanese, Chinese, Russian or Arabic That quarter would be worth more in two years than any investment you could possibly make with the other three quarters.

IDN may not be everyone's thing, but everyone should be taking a serious look!

Are there any estimates on what these kinds of IDN names might be worth in a few years (return on investment)?

I registered the name in 1995. There was no appraisal done in 1995 (first serious attempt to appraise was a couple months ago). I've never made a good attempt to develop the name, so the traffic and revenue information is not relevant.

I didn't know anything about overture until a few months ago.

Sorry that I can't be of any help.

Re: Social.com - requesting appraisal

With a name like this, you could be making very good money, much more than if you sell, if you only got it developed.

Yes - unless you were absolutely desperate for the $$$, or you had another 3 or 4 like this, I'd be reticent to sell.

Every year you hold it is only going to increase it's value.

You thought of setting a site up with it?

Re: Social.com - requesting appraisal

Remember, every time you put up nothing or a site like germany.com on a good domain, you are turning away potential customers worth thousands a day.
