The Taunt.com domain name is a Four-Star Value and has never been available at auction until now. On May 13 it will be sold at the Moniker live auction from DOMAINfest Fort Lauderdale.
How to make your web presence more profitable...start with an excellent domain name. The most memorable domain names are easy to spell, easy to remember, and have five letters or less. Dot-com is the preferred extension. A desirable name has widespread appeal that an effective marketing campaign can be built around. Taunt.com possesses these sought-after characteristics and is a wise investment.
Domains are the equivalent of real-world real estate. The statement "they ain't making any more of it" is true in both real estate and dot-coms. Every word in the English language has been registered as a dot-com leaving entrepreneurs with two choices: invent a new word that is interesting, short and catchy, or purchase an existing name if it's available for sale. When investors purchase diamonds they grade them using the four C's: Color, Clarity, Carat, and Cut. A similar system is used to evaluate domain names: Characters, Commerce, dot-Com, and Catchy.
Make no mistake about it, short domains are more valuable that longer ones. Short names are simpler to spell, faster to type, and easier to remember. Most four and five letter dot-coms were registered fifteen years ago and are rare as hen's-teeth.
The value of a domain name is directly related to the products or services it represents. Computers, cars, books, and software represent large areas of commerce. Boomerangs, dental floss, and buggy whips, represent smaller niche markets. Generic, well-known phrases with broad commercial appeal are more valuable.
The top level domains include .com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov and more. As with real estate, land in downtown New York or on the beaches of California is worth considerably more than acreage on the South Pole. Dot-com is the first choice for business investment. Think of all the website advertising on TV, print, and radio and you'll be hard pressed to think of a single dot-net.
Catchy names are unique and easily remembered. These names maximize the effectiveness of your advertising campaign.
Taunt.com scores high using the four-C domain valuation model. Taunt.com is a domain name that lends itself well to online gaming, dating websites, adult content, and more.
Taunt.com and a handful of other attractive domain names will be auctioned at the Moniker live domain auction held at DOMAINfest Fort Lauderdale, May 13th, at the W Hotel. Visit domainfest.com for further details or Google 'domainfest'.
