Granted, it's a much better than average name. However, I don't want to rain on George's parade but must disagree with safesys and his seemingly far too high appraisal on it. Personally, I would value the name at less than $1,000.
If we use Overture stats the name would not get many type-ins at all. That's because first, it does not seem like a 'natural' or security industry keyword type of name people would type-in.
Plus, the Overture Stats are not that great with only 995 searches done. Returns of 995 are 'OK' but far from real good, and not nearly what they should be for a $5,000-$10,000 name.
It would also seem not too good as a sub-domain portal since the word restricted usually comes up first rather than last in terms, i.e. Restricted Stock not Stock Restricted, etc.
A great example of good sub-domain names are names like basketball.posters.com, baseball.posters.com, etc., where the keyword domain targeted term (i.e. Posters) coming up last are more natural, rather than first as in the case of Restricted.
Also, if you type in to Overture 'Restricted.com' there are zero returns, which means few people expect to find a website there.
Oddly a name which at first glance seems to be inferior quality to Restricted, I recently reg'd for $10 thanks to member Whois-Search's free list of unreg'd names and gets 59 returns on examplename.com before I reg'd it, which I found quite surprising.
I have a new small 1 page website online for this $10 name and it gets on average 19 to 28 uniques a day on the page counter every day, all type-ins as far as I know. I doubt if restricted.com would do that well on type-ins as a small 1-page site.
P.S. On the list below perhaps someone here could explain how the 2nd term
manages 558 returns. I am asking for feedback from others on this anomaly
