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 🙂
