I have done some research on this subject. I utilized a company called Accurate Domaines to appraise the value on a domaine name. I thought their services were very cool! I learned that 8 characters or less is premium. I had no idea this was the case. Accurate Domaines services come highly recommended by me. They were fast, efficient and reasonably priced.
Here is a sample of their work.
Each category is given a rating of 1-10 with 10 being the best.
Commercial use – 6/10
Brand recognition – 6/10
Length of domain – 5/10
Dot value – 10/10
Minimum Value – $3,900
Maximum Value – $5,000
Below is an explanation of our 4 categories.
Commercial Use – What kind of industry can this name be used for? Can this name be built into a commercial web site?
Brand Recognition – Is the name easily recognizable? How easy will it be to build brand recognition for this name?
Name Length – How long is the name? In nearly every case, a shorter domain name is preferable.
Dot Value - What is the ending segment of the name? Does it end in .com, .net, .cc, or a different ending?
Minimum Value is the lowest price the domain should sell for.
Maximum Value is the highest price the domain should sale for.
*Domains may very easily sell for higher than the Maximum Value if two people or companies both want to purchase the domain.
