How much is this domain worth?

Hi Warriors,
I currently bought an exact match domain name which is TescoInsuranceCar.com with 9900 global searches and $20.7 CPC.

How much is this domain worth?

    Probably what ever you paid for it........ trademarked domains aren't that popular due to the chance you might get a cease and desist order.....

      Tesco is a pretty large brand name and certianly one I wouldn't want to risk.

      I'm not sure about other countries but, here in the UK, Tesco is HUGE and I would be very surprised if they didn't frown upon this.

      How many people would go for a website with 'Wal-Mart' in the domain?

      Sorry if it's not the answer you were looking for.

    Yea, same as the others. I made that mistake in the beginning. Everyone tells you to go get exact match, but leaves out the part that you shouldn't get trademark names. I should have thought it thru better. Other than that, if you built out a site and was making money off it, you can generally assume 8-10x the monthly income. But I wouldn't expect much now because of the trademark issue. Sorry..

    Try to make some money with the domain you purchased. You need to get traffic to your website first. If your site can make x dollars per month, your domain would be valued at around 18x.

      I really wouldn't risk doing anything with it - unless you can make enough money to cover any potential legal fees you might incur from using a trademark in the domain.

      18 x what the website is earning per month?
      I think that's a high estimated value for most domains, but I certainly wouldn't risk buying it as an investment.

    I wouldn't risk for this. Why don't you try some other domain name. I'm sure you will surely find the best and right one.

    Tesco was a client of mine once. Get ready for the cease and desist letter if you use it or try to sell it. Once you try to sell it publicly, then can win their case against you instantly.

      To you it's worth a potential massive headache. And deservedly so if you pursue keeping this domain or worse take the decision to develop it.

      Basically with this domain name, you're seeking to find your own level of success by piggy-backing on the success of another company efforts in the marketplace.

      In other words stealing their own customers from right underneath their own noses, people who would otherwise possibly spend their money directly with Tesco. And possibly in doing so bringing their good business trading name into disrepute. Not to mention causing possible confusion to Tesco's customers.

      They (Tesco) spend a fortune on marketing and advertising. Why should you be entitled to use their good business name for your own selfish ends? Why do you deserve to piggyback on their success without giving anything in return to them?

      No they're not just a corporation - there are, these are still people, behind the corporation name.

      How would you like it if somebody did the same to your business?

      Would you complain or think fair play to the guy who tried to use your own success against you?

      Think about what you're doing and if you haven't done so already, watch the video above. It's for your own good that I posted it up.
