Your question was: When registering a domain at godaddy.com, what's the value of geting private registration or "deluxe?.
I am not to sure either way.. if they will or won't.. Seems like a lot of people are registering them..
Especially if you had domains like aa-aa or bb-bb..
Why not just invest your $55 into something that you know will get big(ger), LLLL.coms...
Its the excitement.
Plus, $55 will not buy a premium llll.com I would need thousand or so for that..
And, besides the .net extension on these.. They would be considered top premium domains for nn-nn and ll-ll domains.
Opps 100 posts ^^^^..
Haha.. nice my first NP dollar.. I will keep it forever....
LL-LL? A pure collectible. Who will use it?.
This question (who might use the domain) should be the first to put when registering a domain.
Besides, you invested $55 now, but you will need to reinvest $55 next year too, and $55 two years after.
While, it is better to buy a good HostGator for $60 now and invest $7 next year and so on.
All these countdowns had just negative effect, and people register domains without questioning them.
Who will pay you more for 44-44.com? I don't know. Can't see any company using that for their brand...
The .com's of such names go back to 1998/99 in many cases - it's a potential area for investment, and numbers are as international as you can get so a very wide potential audience.
I have a few similar names including 00-01.com which gets around 70/80 a month.
Caution is, as always, advised .com in this case is most definitely king and .net is a long way behind...
I agree. these types of domains are "brandable" and brandability goes with the main extention. I for example as much as I love .org and even .info, will never buy brandable domains in these tld's.
And I love brandable's too. But they go well with .com...
My philosophy is 5 letter brandables in .com (LLLLL.com) and Generic single keywords in .org, is the way to go in domaining, oh and very high quality 4 letter LLLL.com, I like those too..
I totally agree, there are far better usuable generics still available at that price IMO.
Even very strong 2 keyword hyphen domains are a loooong shot but at least they are very usable and have a few advantages to them. (but I only ever buy them if the keywords are really really strong).
I prefer to follow the news more than follow HostGator fads.
