The trouble with 'free' type domains is there's no obvious route to monetisation being that you can't sell anything.

I like it. Low mid 4 figures.

I agree with Robs comment but in this case there is an obvious opportunity to monitize this via hosting offers.

Plenty webhost offers “free” websites with your hosting package.

Don't get me wrong. It has value as it's a nice term. However it's not one I would want to develop because in my experience people looking for free websites are also looking for free hosting to go with it and they usually don't spend. I would pitch it to big domain companies that provide this.

Perhaps thats true but plenty hosting companies advertise “free websites” and thats the crux of it. If they have advertising on the term already they might be willing to pony up 5k for a lead funnel. 5K equals roughly 10x CPA leads on some of the best hosts via CJ.

Even the guys running website.com chose the free model as intro for some reason. So there has to be money there.

Hi

I think it's a good name, simply because it should get type-in traffic

if i memba correctly, godiddy had free website offer when you buy a domain name.


domain by itself, worth four figures

imo....
