Hello, Fellow warriors, I am willing to sell my domain wmblogger.com can you guys tell me where I can appraise the domain to get best deals. Domain is currently hosted on Godaddy and searching for alternatives beside Godaddy and Flippa. Any ideas will be much appreciated.

    It probably isn't worth very much. If anything it will need to be sold to a end buyer that needs those exact "WM" initials for their blog. You most likely will get no more than what you paid for it but if you put up for sale and wait on it you could get an offer.

    The domain market is tough these days, unless you have a good short worded keyword it's worth very little.

      "Appraisals" of names like this really aren't helpful at all, Vishwa. They're not market-driven, but the market is.

      Honestly, it's worth whatever someone will pay you for it. What you can sell a domain for depends on your skills at identifying, approaching and negotiating with parties to whom it may have some value above and beyond its reg-fee. (And this is why it's not unusual at all for a premium domain to be worth 5 times as much to one person as to another).

      Please excuse my mentioning that I can't immediately see, in this case, why "wmblogger" would be worth more than reg-fee. "wpblogger" would be a different matter, perhaps, because with that one you'd have the "WordPress" association in your favor. But unless I've missed some implicit reference, here, it isn't easy to see who would want to pay a premium price for "wmblogger"???

      You could try approaching some businesses/companies whose initials are "W.M.", but even then "wmblog" might be a better shot than "wmblogger"?

      If you're thinking of selling it as a "blog-hosting site", you need to take into account Google's ownership of the "Blogger" trademark, in that context. Trademarks can be complicated, but using something for exactly the same use as the owner of an existing trademark on the word is always going to be fraught with dangers, I think.

        Thanks for the clarification Alexa. Actually I have exactly the same concern as you have elaborate above.

    It's not a great one. I'd likely buy if it was (love scouring forums for domain deals). Throw it on DNForum or NamePros.

      Flippa would be the best place, or Godaddy premium domains.
