What’s a Really Good and Reputable Domain Name Worth?
I’ve written several posts in the past about what a good domain name is worth. There are different ways to value a domain name and how much you might be willing to pay for it.
For example… if someone had “your name” .com, you would likely pay a lot of money for it. Especially if you were famous or wanted to build a brand off your name.
Then there are generic domain names that sell for very big numbers.
You can see a few of them below.

TechCrunch has released news on another awesome domain name and web site was recently acquired, which was for BRAND.COM and ended up selling in the six figure range.
When you think of BRAND.COM, what do you think would be the best use for the site?
There are a few ideas that would work, but reputation management and branding are the ones that seem to fit best.
If you guessed these two then you would be right.
I’ve also talked about Reputation Changer in the past as well, and they were the ones who picked up BRAND.COM to establish it into their next focus and branding project.
While “Reputation Changer” is a cool name and definitely tells you what their service does, you really can’t get any better and more direct that having “BRAND.COM” as your site and business name.
The thing about domain names is that there is only ONE of them… and if it’s not a .COM address, it’s not that great.
When you think about Google, Apple, Microsoft and Yahoo throwing a BILLION dollars at a company that they never end up doing anything with… think about what they could be doing in the domain name industry.
Domain names will only continue to increase in value over time and it’s always exciting to see who’s buying and for how much.
