Worth of a Domain Name

Many domain names have a market value worth many times the cost of the annual registration fee. A number of factors contribute to the value of a given domain name. Some of the most important include:

  • Extension (.com is generally the most valuable)
  • Length (shorter is better)
  • Number of words (fewer is better)
  • Potential use (meaningful domains with obvious commercial potential are most valuable)
  • Overall market demand
For a professionally researched evaluation of your domain name's value, we recommend the domain appraisal service provided by Sedo.co.uk.
