What is my domain worth?
Premium domain name assets can be extremely valuable! We know that many may now be wondering what their domain name may be worth?
Here are a couple of online tools to play with … although they are not truly accurate valuations as each domain name asset is unique, they do give you a starting point as to what your domain name “may” be worth, a kind of “estimate” based on certain data points, historical similar asset sales records, search volume, cost per click for the term, letter character makeup / position / popularity and combinations etc… Yes this works for both dot com and dot ca domain names as well!
Who knows maybe you own a fantastic domain name asset that could be on this list someday 🙂

Premium domain name assets can literally be worth any amount really, as every single domain name is unique.
The vast majority of domain names registered are really worth no more than their registration fee, and often times not even that sorry to say (what the domain would be worth to someone else other than the current owner that is)….however it is common place now for many premium + sought after domains to sell in the range of $5K to $50K….and among those there are so called category killers, EMDs (exact match domains), some one word domains, very short domains, and brandables which can sell well over $100K! All these figures are USD by the way as the resale market tends to report in USD. The premium domain name asset sector can be an increasingly exciting space, and for some it can be very profitable as well!
