Are .cc domains worth anything?

Just curious if the .cc domains are valuable or essentially throw aways?

    In my opinion it is useless.

      It all depends on what you mean by "worth anything". If you're creating a Website where it's absolutely essential that your visitors remember the name and need to type it into their browser, I think a .com name is essential.

      If your traffic is coming from search engines or PPC, I think other suffixes are fine, particularly if you've got a search engine friendly domain name.

      My 2¢.

        Sorry for the lack of clarity. I am referring to resale value for a domain name. If I had a one word or three letter .cc domain, would it be worth much?

          Unless it's a three-letter one-word generic, like say cat.cc then no, it almost certainly is not ever worth the reg fee. "Spastic" (eg. unprounceable/numbers+letters/etc.) three-letter .coms are currently going for a few-hundred dollars on average, and one has to assume that if you had the exact same thing as a .cc it might be worth a small fraction of 1% of whatever the .com went for.

          Unfortunately there's no point holding onto it either, since .cc is not a TLD to which people tend to migrate if the .com, .net. .org, TLDs aren't available.
