    $8.99

    or however much someone may be prepared to pay who wanted it badly enough.
    Would you still have bought it for $100 as an investment?
    Catchy though

    Not by much. Even if though people search, it's a vanity URL with weird dot extension. I do love it though. I have mobilemesexy.com. And it hasn't fetched anything.

    If nothing else works, make a little gif of you dancing. Use that as the content of the website.

    Then whenever you feel discouraged, load the page and cheer yourself on.

    "I'm too sexy for my love!" Yeah on the catwalk....

    It could be worth something if you took the time to think of something unique, fun and entertaining with the domain. Time to get creative!

    Ain't worth a damn thing, BUT if you can make a site on it, where people can upload sexy pictures of themselves, then it will be worth something, may even be worth a ton of money if it goes viral

          I'm thinking maybe it should be aimed at a UK audience?

          "I'm sexy, me" does make sense in "English" English and is a phrase that would be used. "I'm (anything) me" is a turn of phrase that's used a lot.

            Thats right rosetrees, being from the UK it made sense to me, now i just have to convince the rest of the world, seriously speaking though it does make sense to target uk with it, if i actually had an idea lol

    Google reduces the value of EMD, so you need to add high quality backlinks to your domain name and provide good quality content for your site. This effort takes months.

    It depends. If you have the .com to go with it, and you build something around the site it could be worth something. But I would never purchase a domain name from someone if I didn't at least also have the .com version. Otherwise you are just leaking traffic to someone else.

      Good advice, the .com is available for sale, maybe he should start there.

    .ME domains are usually good for branding only, it works better with a verb (read.me, kiss.me etc).

    If you are trying to market it for it's EMD value, there are lots of other extensions available for imsexy and some are even cheaper than the minimum price of a .me domain.

    IMO it's a bad pick considering there are still many LLL.me available, not saying LLL.me are valued more than the regular price of a .me domain but they are certainly better than a random .me domain.

      IMSEXYME doesn't make a whole lot of sense whereas something like SEXYOLD.ME does.

    It's worth exactly what someone is willing to pay for it and it's on you to find the buyer. It's a catchy domain for the right person. A narcissistic woman or a model or something, but you still have to market and find the buyer. Don't expect an avalanche of interested buyers to just roll your way.

    It's worth what you paid for it. At least it was - to whoever you bought it from.

    Now it's only worth whatever you can get someone to pay for it. By default it's not worth anything and you have added no extra value to it so why would it be worth anything more than when you bought it?

    nothing to see here.

  • I personally don't put too much value on domain names unless it's for some specific reasons (example local SEO targeting: "NewYorkDivorceLawyers.com").

    Other than that, domain names are only worth what you make out of them. For example: what on Earth did "Skype", "Google" or "Pinterest" meant as a domain name before they became successful? absolutely nothing.

    So yeah, fancy domain names and stuff are cool and dandy, but I personally don't put much weight on them.

    I believe that it is still worth something......depending for what you are planning to use the domain ... though!

    I own a .com domain that was appraised for $2500 by Premium Domain Appraisal from SEDO.com

      Either you want to sell the domain, or you want to keep it.

      If you want to keep it, then there's a business reason to it - like, building your site and getting targeted visitors. If you manage to market the site then there's no reason that should not happen. If nothing, you can run dating CPA offers on the site.

      If you don't want to keep it, then you might as well try to sell it for whatever it sells at - every cent you earn is a gain now that you have made your investment.

    SEDO Appraisal is a scam. I got one appraised for them for a price which in their opinion is good enough to be brokered by them. But still they didn't because their appraisals are grossly inflated.

    Estibot.com isn't accurate all the time, however from an end user view point it is pretty accurate or even optimistic many times.

    Why would that be worth anything? No one is really searching for anything with that keyword. There probably just looking for something sexy..not an item they are going to actually pay for

    Here's the thing: any domain is worth money if you work on it. Is the domain itself, without anything on it, just based on the name, worth anything? Probably not.

    However, it's a catchy name that you can easily make into a website. Make it about tips to get sexy, sell a guide about the top 20 sexy things guys/girls need to do to get that special someone or advertise how sexy you are for modeling.

    That will make it worth money. If you just wanna sell it as a domain, then you shouldn't even bother.
