Your question was: I want to create a 10 pages website with any HTLM knowledge. Does Godaddy with Website Tonight is th?.
I agree completely .... But wouldn't you say the green movement will have a commercial side that can't be overlooked? If so is this a good time to pick up those names associated with the commercial aspect of the "green" industry ....as it will be?.
Will the org have a TM arguement if they are non-proffits?..
.org is KING in more markets then just Green! .org will be 2nd to .com in no time if it isn't already.
The largest problem with the internet is TRUST. The .org extension has a built in trust with internet users already. That is Priceless and investors are just starting to figure it out.
Two recent 6 figure sales of the .org extension are starting to make peoples eye's open. I said this Months Ago..org is way underrated!..
Yup I agree. Green resources need to be free, be supported by non profit organizations to be effective. All major countries are pushing the green idea hard and a lot of organizations are being pro-active in the green initiative. Therefore I see a good future of this particular niche in the .org other than .com.
Got a "green" name today at a very very reasonable price..
I'm glad people are seeing this. I think that the Web will wake up from their .net love affair sometime soon and realize that .org is 2nd to .com.
.org is most definitely leading "green" domains I think it's another one of those "feel good" things. The average person feels like they're doing something right by supporting the environment which is synonymous with nonprofit organizations and other groups and associate the eco-friendly movement with .org.
This movement is not for the good of commercial business (.com), but rather for the earth's well-being (.org)...
Interesting. How do you determine this? Can you give examples? The time to pick up good green names of either extension for reasonable prices has long since passed. The demand is very high, and the prices reflect that. A few years back, the World Wildlife Fund successfully defended their WWF TM against the World Wrestling Federation. That was huge...
Here's a quick list of popular sites:http://www.wecansolveit.org/ http://www.green.org/ http://www.globalgreen.org/greenbuilding/index.html http://www.green-e.org/ http://www.builditgreen.org/ http://www.green-trust.org/ http://www.green-wifi.org/ http://www.echoinggreen.org/ http://www.gogreeninitiative.org/..
Searching for "green" names over the last few weeks. Seeing a larger number of org for sale with "green" and "eco" names. Wanted names forums here and a couple of other forums with a good number of "green/eco" names wanted posts asking for org. And most recently have spent a few hours link hopping from a post by Etab here ... http://www.namepros.com/domain-name-...ject-orgs.html.
You can follow associate links for hours. If you search the names some of the coms are available still. Thus my observation...
How about com's the king and org's the "New" Queen?..
In your searches, did you notice any similarities or differences between org and com pricing? Is there any pattern?..
I can say there were very few parked pages with orgs. There was however quite a few com parked pages. As for price comparrisaons ..... hard to say with fewer of the orgs being for sale.
A quick search, at SEDO, for names that contain "green" in both org and.
com shows 10 times the number of coms for sale..
Your search returned 1124 matching domains (green / orgs).
Your search returned 10092 matching domains (green / coms).
This pretty much reflects the ratio I was talking about...
Org is a great extension full stop.
Suits the organic & green area very well.
I sold a 2 word .org last week for xxxx range..
What's wrong with .org? I'm just curious to hear your thoughts...
.COM/.NET/.ORG for me still.
When it comes to planting or taking an action an organization or a team is called for..
It's not one man's effort...
Now I agree Namenut and Yofie, I believe .org #2 it is authoritative, but let me go to the flipside. Most of the people investing in .org are not going to start a green site to save the planet, they are looking to sell the .org for a profit. Do you think there will be a backlash from non domainers. Meaing if you had GreenPlanet.org, excellent name IMO and you wanted $20,000 do you think people would be like, what a disgrace this name should be in the hands of an org dedicated to a green project.
Now again I am not against selling it and I agree there is the trust, but would the trust be there if a lot of uneducated non domainers think this is in bad taste and it is not right to sell a .org for big money to a organization that will use it for the good of the planet?.
I like .org for financial names like Loan and Mortgage. I own some Igeo.org that get 1 or 2 uniques a day like Imontreal.org or Iportugal.org and my main niche tv, I have gratistv.org, hongkongtv.org,britishtv.org etc... all get traffic with Gratis getting like 4 a day which is not big but interesting for a tv.org IMO...
Yes ......... Even more so than porn. The higher the price the greater the backlash.
I drive a lifted 4X4 on 35" tires and I catch flack for it a few times a week. I'm waiting for the eco vandals to get me. ( LOL ... www.ecovandalcom is a parked page. the org not regged.).
I still think there is a commercial side to the green industry that can't be overlooked..
Just facilitating the movement means supplies, materials, advertising, marketing (domain names) etc ....
Even if a "greenie" gets the HostGator name, for free, then pays 20 k for website design does that mean the design house should be looked at negatively? I don't see all aspect of the green industry being "free". There has to be a support system for the "greenies" to be green. Especially if we all do as they ask and start living green. I think, in the very least, it will be a sensitive niche to deal in.
I preddict a habbit of donating a portion of any "green and eco " related name sales. Kind of like buying carbon credits (lol).
This is an intersting twist to the OP in that I am thinking of developing a green site(s) both commercial and non-profit.
I have the com and org to use respectively.
Most organizations are not going to be buying .org names.
Etab shows some examples of what a organization does when it wants a HostGator for the green market. They put - or / in the name and that way they don't pay to buy names from domainers.
Thats the biggest hurdle.
I know at times a .org sells. I have a few myself. Think about it though, more times than not when you do a search for a green site, you will find these have a dash or slash in the name. I don't think they are buying those names...
Org does work well with organic, green, eco etc..
I regged greentourist.info ..... I felt it suited the extension..
I have tons of green orgs in my waiting to be regged list, but I am wary on the demand. With the huge numbers of parked domains at Sedo alone with "green" in them, unless you have some super generic green .com or .org then they could easily just sit idle unless developed that is.
More $ wasted and for what , hype? Its tough not to regg them but one must eat...
Some people do not like .org because it looks shady....
The dot com green names are outselling the dot orgs by more than 10 to one...
.com Traffic is King but .org is an excellent extension for the Green Stuff.
I dont know why folks are buying .org and not the .com.
When they can have both.
Now a .eco, that would be something...
Ok...check these out...they don't all have 'green' in them but the vast majority are green and alternative energy names.

I hate when lists like this are produced ..... and you see names on it that you have on one of your old "available to reg" lists.
If you look at sales history you will see a lot more greencom names have sold. And if you look at how many are available for sale you will see greencoms also dominate the market. Much fewer greenorgs for sale from what I can see. And a mute sales history. Possibly due to more private sales being made in the org ext.
"I just grabbed a name at random off the list: healthyplanetcom".
This is a great name. Eco or medical this name is a strong com in a strong eco/health market. IT IS PARKED! Now go to the org. It is developed. How long do you think the com will last, or gain in value, in this parking ppc environment writhe with public annoyance and contempt with parked pages..... pages not sites is the key here? I think the developed site will end up the more valued HostGator in this niche.
Lol Imagine that .... pointing the com to the org. hmmm.
To me this name is a great com but the org is king here. Coupled with the growing public awareness and business branding you will see the real "green" players end up with the traffic, members, sales etc. Yes I said sales. I think we will be accepting of orgs to make sales in order to fund efforts. A transparent accounting and public tally of funds raised will make "Joe/Jan public" accept the practice.
The point has been made, brilliantly I might add, that organizations wont be buying names due to budgets and stigma etc. Well I agree to some degree. However I think as "green, eco, enviro etc" business becomes more popular and branded we will see funding put into organizations, as a politically correct "Vogue" kind of thing, by business, celebrities and government. I can see "green/ecoOrgs" gaining in clout and prestige soon. More funding, volunteers, acceptance, popularity, celebrity etc..... Just as the same "brilliant" member pointed out, in an earlier post, that the public will trust the org's inherently over the com's.
I just see commercialism creeping into Org's and it will be OK (acceptable and expected). No more passive model waiting in the shadows for hand-outs.
