Hey there,
I've been experimenting with various domain names on Estibot, but I haven't received an estimate greater than $100. Is this typical, or do I need a premium subscription?
When I go to the Estibot website, I see a red message regarding trademarks. What is your take on Estibot compared to Godaddy and Freevaluator?


While automated appraisals can offer additional advantages such as examining comparable name sales, website visits, and more, it is important not to solely rely on them. Rather, they should only comprise a minor portion of your valuation process.
Additionally, you should consider using nameworth when cross-checking the valuation bots.

If you are willing to take the risk of manually obtaining a domain name that you don't necessarily need, first check if it is available in NameJet, SnapNames auctions, and the DropCatch database. If the answer is no for all three, your chances are good. However, if the domain is only in DropCatch, make sure to backorder it before it gets captured by HugeDomains, a partner of DropCatch, where it will be listed at exorbitant prices.

For domains in public auction, such as Last Chance in NameJet and Expired in SnapNames, place a bid 15 minutes before the auction end time. Avoid using DropCatch's discount club and apply for the full price instead. According to reviews on, DropCatch sometimes sends the domain to HugeDomains instead of the individual who applied for it.

If the domain is available in all three services, apply for a backorder in each one to increase your chances of success. StuckDomains is a useful tool for finding expired domains whose owners stopped paying for them, while Ebay and Godaddy perform similar functions. Additionally, stay up-to-date on new expired domain names with the service.


Estibot is generally considered a popular tool for domain name valuation. The estimates provided by Estibot can vary depending on various factors like the length of the domain, keyword popularity, traffic potential, and many other variables. It's possible that the domain names you've been experimenting with don't have a high estimated value based on these factors.

Regarding the red message on the Estibot website regarding trademarks, it is important to note that Estibot provides automated estimates and should not be considered the final word on a domain's value. It's always recommended to do thorough research and consult with domain experts before making any decisions.

Godaddy and Freevaluator are also commonly used tools for domain valuation. Godaddy offers its own appraisal service, while Freevaluator is a free valuation tool. Each tool has its own methodology and algorithms to determine domain values, so it's advisable to use multiple sources to get a more comprehensive understanding of a domain's worth.

- Godaddy: As a well-known domain registrar, Godaddy offers its own domain appraisal service called "Domain Appraisals." It evaluates various factors such as domain length, keyword popularity, search volume, and comparable sales data to provide an estimated value. Godaddy's appraisal service is known for its accessibility and ease of use.

- Freevaluator: Freevaluator is a free online tool that provides domain name evaluations. It takes into account several metrics, including domain age, Alexa rank, backlinks, and search engine visibility, among others, to estimate a domain's value. It's important to note that although Freevaluator is a convenient and accessible option, its valuations may not always accurately reflect market prices.

In general, it's advisable to use multiple tools and sources for domain valuation since each service may have its own algorithms and limitations. Additionally, seeking expert advice or consulting with industry professionals can help you gain a better understanding of the true value of a domain.
