Is this domain name worth anything?

7 replies
Hey Guys,

I have got the domain name: I Am.org I'm planning on building a cool quiz type site with a twist, currently it has nothing on it though.

The quizzes will have titles like:

Am I In Love
Am I Eco Friendly
Am I Going To Be Rich
Am I Like Homer Simpson
Am I Lazy...

you get the Idea.

Do you think I would get any money for just the domain without the a built on it? If so how much would you say?

Cheers

Ricky

    Ricky,

    Just to clarify, the domain name is not IAm.org, but Am-I.org. Correct? If that's the case, I personally would not pay even the registration fee. If it was IAm.org, then you'd have something of value.

    You could certainly build on it (or any other domain) to create value. But this domain name in itself without content has no value.

  • The domain's not worth anything to me.

    You could make something of it if 1) you are obsessive about creating content or 2) you are willing to buy lots of content.

    A prime example of #1 would be The Oatmeal. I didn't realize it until recently, but everything on that site is created by one guy. He must not ever sleep.

      I believe that it does actually have SEO value, a URL Like:

      am-i.org/am-i-in-love

      Would be very good if trying to rank for a low - medium comp keyword.

      Thanks

      Guys

    Would be hard for end users (non tech savvy people) to remember the exact url as dashes add to the damage.

      OP, you'll find there is probably some value to Am-I.org . . . if pitched to a person called Ami (plenty of those out there). How you would go about doing it I have no idea :confused:

    It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.
