Chicago.info
and Opinions.org Sold for About the Same Price. Which
One Was the Better Buy & Why?

16
years ago
we started our weekly
domain sales reports

(that come out every Wednesday
evening) as an educational tool.
Showing the exact prices paid for
specific domain names each week
gives all of us a chance to learn
more about domain values, gain
insight into the latest trends
(what’s hot and what’s not) and have
access to a large pool of comparable
sales that can be pointed to when
buyers question domain valuations.
We recently came up with a new
feature
aimed at providing
additional insight into how domains
are being valued –  a
periodic Name Vs. Name poll
and discussion
in which two
similarly priced but otherwise
different kinds of domains are
matched against one another.  

In our latest
weekly sales column
a
couple of domains jumped out at me
as being very good values. One was Chicago.info
at just $2,200 and the other
was Opinions.org at only $2,100
(both are non .com gTLDS that
were sold through NameJet).
I was actually shocked to see
Chicago.info at that price as it is
one of the world’s great cities and
the .info TLD is a good match
for geodomains.

The
name itself implies being a
definitive source of information
about the destination and Chicago is
one that attracts well over 50
million visitors
annually! I
also very much like Opinions.org 
– an excellent, versatile one word
domain in a popular long established
legacy extension. It would be a
perfect name for unbiased consumer
reviews
or a site curating
opinions from thought leaders on a
wide variety of topics related to
the public good. At $2,100 that
was also a terrific buy in my
opinion. It came in what was an
especially good week for the .orgs
as they swept the first 8 positions
on our weekly Non .Com gTLD Top
Sales Chart. 

So
having introduced the contestants – let’s get ready to rumble! (The
poll will remain open for 5 days
(closing on Tuesday afternoon, May
14, 2019). We will share the
final results with you in our next
Name vs. Name battle where it will
be listed in the table of past
battles you see at the bottom of
this post).  Chicago.info
or Opinions.org – which was the better buy
and, if you are willing to comment,
we would like to know why
you feel that way
