ItÃ¢â¬â¢s accepted that the value of a domain name is what an individual or firm will pay for it. Some may find interesting the following information IÃ¢â¬â¢ve compiled of the top 163 bids placed with one registrar in the .info LandRush2:
113 bids $2,000 -$4,000
27 bids $4,000 - $6,000
12 bids $6,000 - $9,000
5 bids $10,000 - $15,000
4 bids $15,000 - $22,000
2 bids $25,000 - $35,000 (porn.info $25,110 and hawaii.info $35,010)
This doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t include bids ranging from $50 to $2,000 for another 4,500 .info domain names.
While some .info bashers may immediately dismiss it as being people wasting their money, the amounts establish a verifiable market price for generic .info names.
If good websites eventuate from the thousands of generic .info names being redistributed in the next few days, this will certainly raise the profile of .info in the minds of people worldwide.
.com will always be the best TLD, but I strongly believe that .info will grow to become the next logical choice for those who canÃ¢â¬â¢t get the best .com in their industry or organization.
