Classifier to help for domainers

1. A dictionary word in a normal domain zone like .COM
Examples: , ,

pros: all the pros - such a domain name can be very expensive to sell, and a Google site on such a domain will be very much "loved" and promoted better than sites on "crooked" domains.
minus: in a normal domain zone like .COM, they have not been available for a long time.

2. Readable, correct abbreviation of a word or expression
Examples: , DNray

pros: easy to remember and other pros
minus: in a normal domain zone like .COM, they can hardly be taken cheaper.

3. A two-word dictionary of two dictionary words
Examples: Buy Auto, Call Taxi, Repair Apartment, PortraitArtist, CoffeeShop

pros: if English is in the .COM zone, then with luck you can profitably sell. For her project to sell what she describes by her name, a Google site on such a domain will "love" very well.
minus: not a premium one-worder

4. "Brand"
pros and cons: to whom how.

5. Three-word book ("three-storey building") and others like them
Examples: Plumber, Best WhoresCities

pluses: almost none - but in the absence of a better choice, as a lesser evil, for her project to sell what she describes by her name, she will go.
minus: it's too long, and it won't work to sell it to anyone.

6. "Types"

pros: you can put it in the parking lot and wait for the dough, hoping for erroneous sets of words
minus: in addition to parking and waiting for the dough from there, there is almost no other way to apply

7. TM ("trademark")
Examples: Nokia, Carlsberg, Volvo

pros: doubtful
minus: the owner of the TSM will select such a domain if desired.

8. Very long phrases without or with hyphens
Examples: I love you, you can

pros: none. It is possible, of course, if desired, to create a website on such a domain, but it is unlikely that there will be any use and joy, not to mention earnings.
minus: lack of advantages

8. "Creative" and "bredogenerator" are fantasy and invented words
Examples: see most of the topics in the Domain Evaluation room

pros: it is not visible
minus: no one, except a drunk, does not need it, that is, money is wasted.

9. "Krivulka" - words written incorrectly or with errors.
Examples: aligarh (i.e. a crook from the word "oligarch")

pluses: there
is no minus: minus: none of those who graduated from high school without twos, it's not necessary, that is, money is wasted.

10. Non-existent words, a hybrid between "Crooked" and "Creatiff"
Examples: uristika (thought of as a replacement for the non-existent word "juristica")

pluses: there are no
disadvantages: no one in their right mind and in a good memory does not need it, that is, money is wasted.

Additions, comments and clarifications to this Classifier will be welcome.


I don't really see the connection between the epitaph and the relevance of classes, but I agree the division looks a bit like from the last century.
I would single out the following categories offhand: , (variations including (naturally without a hyphen, meaning combinations of characters)), , - still available on the res market / it is possible to catch on interception / pull out of the drop at auction. They cost money and are likely to be worth more over the years.
If not, then something has broken globally in the world and domains are not the worst thing that has lost value. (Perhaps this statement does not apply to .org and .net).

The correct transliteration in .de and .com is still available on the res. market, of course, the chance of sale directly depends on the word, which category it belongs to, how common it is, whether there is a TM.
English dictionaries - there is nothing valuable to buy in .com, either they are not needed in .de, or it is almost impossible to buy too.

All new zones for investment are almost unsuitable in my opinion, as an option to do as Sergeich, i.e. try to pick out something argumentatively interesting and immediately merge.

Taiping is clearly not an occupation for domainers.
Cybersquatting is more dead than still relevant. Now everyone is smart and ready to swear in court on principle.
And small enterprises are mostly not ready to pay a lot of money.

Creativity, brandability (which is essentially the same creative, but called differently) and all sorts of phrases are a lottery, not a 100% profitable investment.
Naturally, it does not apply if the phrase is popular and is used only in this way. Maybe it will shoot, maybe not. On the res. market is not sold almost.

Separately, I would single out an incredible number of domains of varying degrees of lousy (from frankly cool to disgusting broadcasts), which individuals have owned for a long time and somehow sell and receive passive income. Probably, it's the same kind of lottery, but it's like you bought 1000 tickets. Something is sure to bring the jackpot.


When I started sorting the domains portfolio, I got about 150 topics.
This is different, not what TS had in mind, but for me the meaning is similar, the goal is the same - to understand what he got
So, I spent a lot of time on that sorting and classification. As a result, it turned out that buyers don't really care what I think about my domain name, where I take it and what use I see. Quite, quite.
It turned out, for example, that the "pillow" is not about bedding, not about healthy sleep and not about car safety, it's a damn restaurant, the main accessory of the interior of which pillows of all shapes and colors were chosen, such a chip.
So, domain names are divided into only two categories - for sale and non-sale. Everything else is empty theories and a waste of time.
