What you are saying is something like i have this flashy domain name and i'm selling for a huge price in hopes that a buyer without knowing how much traffic it has buys it. (Without metrics and based on your word).

Without metrics
Hi

whenever i sell a domain, it's being sold, as is.
meaning without metrics.

now if a potential buyer is "looking" for a domain that has some traffic, and if i respond,
then any metrics like visitors, ppc earnings, etc would be divulged.

imo...

Hi

the name, as is, isn't worthy and unless there is inherent type in traffic and/or from seo efforts,
then other metrics don't mean jack turds.

imo...
It ain't worth shit dude. Get real. It's only worth 50k if some end user wants it that bad to build a website out of. But good luck, that would be about the chances of winning the lottery.

so no point buying a premium domain at premium pricing, unless that domain is connected with your business name

But they are not really premium. They are still hand registered domains at jacked up prices. They should be able to ask whatever price they want, but they shouldn't be able to call a hand registered domain a premium, unless it really is.
It's price gouging.

I define a premium domain as an established word that is already in the (multiple languages) dictionary. Trending words and the combination of different words should not be considered as premium until it has been accepted into the dictionary. That is just my opinion.Anything outside of the dictionary, should be decided by the market.

Premium domains are domains that contain a keyword that is valuable. How do you measure this?

How do you know it's valuable?

Something like cocacola.com is premium name. Other services may close your account if you use premium names.

In my opinion a Premium domain name is a liquid domain name, or a domain name that is in the dictionary, or a domain name which words, characters, extra have a lot of searches in Google. Other than that, I really don't see it having much value.

Hi

cocacola is not a premium domain. it is a trademarked domain.
if the name ever expired and went to auction, it would probably command a high price,
but renewal fee would be same as regular cost for .com


a Premium domain name is a liquid domain name,
Hi

there are liquid domains like 3 letter.com,
but some of the domains within that 3 letter category are not considered premium, compared to others.
ie: sex.com = premium, jxv.com = not premium, but still liquid at right price.

imo...

You are kidding me right? even a 4 letter com is premium.

I have an issue with the word premium being tossed around alot.It may have good qualities and that makes it much easier to sale but that doesn't make it a premium.
You start throwing the word premium around and the prices start going up.

Unregistered premium domains are often expensive because they are valuable due to their perceived brand-ability, keyword relevance, and potential SEO benefits. These domains are typically short, and memorable, and may contain popular keywords or phrases that make them highly desirable for businesses looking to establish a strong online presence. Additionally, the scarcity of these domains, as many of the best ones have already been registered, contributes to their high price.

The ownership of unregistered premium domains varies. Some are owned by individuals or businesses who registered them to sell them for a profit (known as domain investors or domainers). Others may be owned by domain registrars or companies specializing in acquiring and selling premium domains.

The value of a premium domain is subjective and can vary based on factors such as the length, relevance, and memorability of the domain, as well as current market trends and demand. The price of a premium domain is typically negotiated between the seller and the buyer, and can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars, or even higher for extremely valuable domains.

Hi

obviously, no proofreading was done above.

if a domain is unregistered, then it can't be owned by an individual or business or another domainer.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.The company must build a brand and bring it to life.Without the work,it's just a word.And a word has a definition. Without that, it's just gobbly guck.
