DomainKing’s 2-Minute Guide to Domain Name Valuations!!




Morning Folks!!



I get asked for valuations on domains on a daily basis. Multiple times. Sorry folks, that’s one thing I don’t do. I don’t do valuations. However, I am starting to call out Pigeon Shit domains when I am asked in public.



I don’t even do valuations on my own names for the most part. Why? First of all the value of a domain name is extremely fluid. Possibly more fluid than any asset or investment I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. I decide on valuation at the time of inquiry.



But more importantly, it’s not my job and I don’t want that job. As I have stated many times before, I have two buckets when it comes to domains. Domains that have potential great value and domains that have no value and never will. So simple!!!



Once it makes it into the value bucket, then I weigh the possibilities and probabilities of that happening. Is it a clearly stated domain that meets all of the criteria that I have been posting about these last few days with these blog posts? It Has to filter through those benchmarks for me to put it in the first bucket of value.



Now let’s be clear, only a few go into the valuation bucket. Thousands and thousands going to the bucket of pigeon shit. The bucket that has no value. Liabilities are not assets. They are BILLS!!



But if I can collect a few in the valuation bucket, which is not easy to do by the way if you’re doing it the right way, then you sift through those and see which one might be the one above the others. So focus on the top domain in the valuation bucket and if you can afford all of them, you can buy all of them. If you can’t afford them all just pick the one that has the most value and the most versatility. But it MUST meet the basic criteria I have laid out. If you’re not meeting all or most of the criteria you’re simply on the wrong path. Here's my valuation for domains that DON'T meet my criteria......-$9/year. Just take 9 dollars out f your wallet and toss it.



Domains are taking their rightful place in the Internet ecosystem as we speak. It took a long damn time! Around 35 years and we’re still a ways away from the price but boy are we getting close!!



I have said this for many many years, decades in fact. We are the land barons of the 21st-century. If you did your job well, we hold the most valuable real estate ever known to mankind. The only thing between the potential valuation and today’s valuation is time. We all have to be sensitive to time however being sensitive to time does not mean giving away unique assets for lowball price is.

If you get thru these 5 articles and still don't have a grasp for domains, or don't find anything of value or you simply dismiss it all, then enjoy your journey to nowhere. Sad but true!! Off-course and lost in space. Good luck with a soft-landing!.

    Too many play the pigeon shit quantity game.
    What is the point of having 1k,5K, or 10K of pigeon shit URLs?

    I’d rather have 1 or 2 premium dot-Com domain names than $8K in annual renewal fees.

          Hello Bill,
          Many followers of the (Contact Group) have been observing and analyzing Both the King And Franky for 20 plus years. Franky was the New young lion back in the day and came late to the domaining Industry. He came in with the Mind set that he knew more than anyone. What this brash young lion met up with was a Mature Wise Tiger ( Rick Schwartz ). Rick had laid the groundwork for our industry and in our opinion Dominated the Realm, as he still does today.In short Franky got his ass handed to him.
          So Franky then decides to be Googles Poster Boy in pushing out G’s and other Strategically inferior TLD extensions, so that Google could swell their subscriber base. The rest is Ugly documented history for those willing to research this. JAS 2/16/2021

            Just for the record…..I love Frank. He is the most successful domain investor of all time. He just took a slightly different path. But Frank is a friend and we just disagreed on gTLD’s.

            The industry is fortunate to be able to watch that debate 8 years later. Passions were high as they should be. But always respectful.

    Hello Rick,

    We are slightly, frustrated for most domainers who mistakenly think Quantity not quality is going to propel their dreams. We say this because right now in this first wave, is the perfect timing to blow out all crap extensions and buy maybe 1-5 Bonafide (.com EPA’s).
    Our next statement will shock most Technicians, but there is no traditional top to (.com EPA’s) Valuations. These Strategic Platforms will simply be rotated from one Target Industry to another. Perpetual Demand is a foreign concept to most investors.They cannot get their heads wrapped around the concept. Those that follow your advice will be long term winners. Our advice take ricks advice and also do your homework and absorb and read the 4-5 links above for basing your decisions. Good Luck! JAS 3/7/2021

    Hello Rick,
    When selling Intangible Assets, A KEY technique Brokers need to learn,is to never ask the interested buyer (What do you Think) No NO NO.
    Ask the prospect(How do you Feel) then SHUT UP! Let them tell you what their needs and ideas are. Probe for their needs, and then fulfill them with interesting story examples.The sale then often becomes a collaboration with them, and they open up.The sale will happen often on your terms and theirs.

    Hello Rick,

    The decentralized nature of Crypto Platforms makes them Radio Active. The worlds Banks are Centralized, and will never allow universal acceptance of current Crypto Platforms. They will gladly support Sovereign issue digital currency, which will be the standard. Banks will laugh at Crypto Platform Holders in the very near future. Anyone who thinks Countries are going to allow non-sovereign Crypto Platforms to compete, are eating Peyote Buttons.
