Please Do Not Register a Brandable .info .me .biz or .tel

Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home1/theman37/public_html/ on line 103

I enjoy once a day going to the Domain Appraisals Section to see what people are registering and more importantly what others think that peoples domain are worth. Most of the time you see recently registered names and once and a while a gem with 6 figures. You can learn tons by just watching what others are doing.

As of late I have been noticing  lots of people posting 6 or so names and asking for an appraisal. They are all brand-able names in non .com or .net extension. I am a little skeptical of even brand able names in the .com so you can imagine what I think of brand-able .info's. You could not give some of those names to me.

With why would anyone develope a brandable non .com. The whole point of a brandable is to build a brand, you can not do this without a .com in todays market.

This post is just a simple reminder to make sure the extension fits the name. Does anyone really want to buy what about or .me.  Do you see value in brand able domains?

    TeenDomainer, this is spot on, to be honest I am not even sure why people buy brandable .coms for that matter. If someone is brainstorming made up words to start a company they will come up with something new if their first made up word doesnt exist. My next blog post has this as one of the items of what NOT to do….

    There are brandables and then there are brandables, not all are created equal.

    There are hundreds of suffixes and prefixes you can use to create ‘brandables’.

    I reg them often in .com, but only the very best ones in .net. I -do- stay away from other extensions, tho…

    I couldn’t agree more. While I sometimes agree with a company’s decision to make say a .org their primary domain (example: I think it is ONLY a smart decision if they also own the .com and redirect the .com to the .org (as SEO Moz does).

    Thanks for the comments, I really just see no value in the names. Its like buying a stock in a fake company
