      Hi.

      I have to agree with Terry.

      Why do you think it has a high value?

      There are no search for the phrase, none of the other extensions are taken, it isn't considered as whether a premium domain name, or as a short domain name.

      Maybe in the future when all the 5 character domain name witch is easy to spell is taken, this will have some value.

      Good luck with it, for you I am hoping I am wrong in my opinion.

    Since I have sold some domains on Ebay, I would say it could easly go for 150$. If it had 5 letters (with only one "m"), it could go for much higher.

    What do you think it's worth?


    I have a domain, which has been appraised for 7000$, but I could never sell it. Not even for 70$. So, it all depends on who is interested in the domain name.

    any reason why you registered that domain name Micah? Unless it is a product name, service or some other trademark I wouldnt think its worth very much.

    then again some people will buy anything!

      Yes the second "m" kills the value, but it may have some "type in" value from people misspelling while running a search for "Gimp" software.

      Better to build a basic site on it, some PR and rank would help.

      A photography or graphics design site would be even better.(for Gimp searchers)

      Best!

          That's true Alexa, and who would search for "gimpy" anyway?

          I don't really see any value in this domain at all. I can't think of a use for it, and with 2 'm's in it, can't really see it as a brand name either.

          Ditch it to anyone who will take it off you.

          Based on server logs from my article directories, many people type in "gimpy" and google is serving up articles about the "Gimp" in search results.

          Who knows?

          Searches, like domains are often not based in logic.

          Domains like 76rg2(.)com will many times quickly sell at auction, while a more common name will not.

    You can always list it on Sedo.com for free. Then you may get offers for it and decide if it is worth selling. (Sedo will charge a fee when you sell)

    You will also be able to see how much traffic it is getting.

        I PMed you Phil.

        If you list something on SEDO, you should get an email from an 'interested' buyer within the first few days. He's sound pretty legit, and he'll agree to just about any price you come up with.

        But in the very end, he'll say that he wants the name appraised. And he'll send you to one or two of his OWN companies.

        So watch out for that scam.

    Good point Eric.

    I got that scammer sending me several emails for my various domains over the course of a year.

      If I verbally told you about the site, you would go to gimpy.com...not gimmpy.com

    To Eric's point...

    In order for a domain name to be worth the big-bucks, it has to at least pass what is called "The Radio Test"

    This means that if you were to broadcast an on-air advertisement, instructing people to go to your website, you should never-ever-ever have to spell the domain. That means no dashes, and no misspellings.

    That being said, while you can probably put to rest any dreams of retiring from the sale of the domain name, you may be able to get at least what you paid for it. It's only worth what someone is willing to pay.
