The Best Option For My Domain

8 replies
Hi guys

I have been wanting to join this forum for a while, however, just got the time to do it today.

I am looking forward to learn a lot from you, and hopefully also give some knowledge back to the forum.

I will start out with a little question. I have purchased a domain last year. The domain consists of the first name and the surname of a young popular model.

She has approximately;

300.000 followers on Instagram
200.000 fans on Facebook
33.100 monthly searches on Google

My initial plan when i bought this domain, was to offer her to make a website for her. Though, i am starting to think that there might be better ways to make money just from this domain.

So this is here i would really appreciate your expertise?

Is this domain worth anything at all, and how in the best way can i monitize from it?

Thank you in advance guys.

Best Regards,

LC

    Welcome to WF!

    This sounds like a potential affiliate / ad space website. Just be careful not to use any copyrighted or trademarked stuff on the site or her legal team will certainly contact you!

    I would put it up for sale with a ridiculously high price and see if you get any takers.

    Thank you very much. I will take a look into that. Yes, i will definately watch out for that, as i do not want to cross the legal side of anything.

    @RogueOne

    Thank you for the advice. When you state a ridiculously high price - how much is that? I am not quite sure of how much a domain like this is worth.

      This is a subject that may best be discussed with someone in a legal area.

      As her name is out there already, and has fellowers.

        Yes definitely tread lightly and make sure you're not violating any trademark laws before you decide to sell.

    "The domain consists of the first name and the surname of a young popular model."

    "Is this domain worth anything at all, and how in the best way can i monitize from it?"

    First and last name and expecting not to get in trouble?

    I wouldn't take that domain for Free.

    Even if you sell it, you will remain responsible if buyer gets sued.

    Your best decision will be consulting with a lawyer.

    Thanks a lot for the advice guys. I definately do not want to do anything that is not legal.

    As my initial plan when i bought the domain was to make a website for her and use it as a reference for my portfolio - i will consider just doing that.

    Thanks a lot for the good answers - might have saved me a lot of trouble later!

    There is definitely money to be made if you develop the website and it appear first on Google.
