Two domains


OK, I bought these two domains hoping they are global, but they could only be viewed by Net.com partners or those who istalled a quick browser plug-in. Surpassing 200 million users.

I still plan to keep those domains as the Net.com organization announced they have plans to make them ICANN approved and become universal.

Until then I think I'm stuck pretty well with them... What do you think their value is though?


www.tennis.chat (wanted it to be a tennis forum).

www.tennis.club (was saving it out to sell/donate to my tennis club).


Both were almost the last in their suffix class.

Any ideas on their approximate values? I'd appreciate that.

obviously tennis is a big game so with any domain, like that can be worth thousands if it was as popular as .com's

e.g i know someone thats selling chat.co.uk for 50,000!!!
that even a .com only because it completly free traffic causes its an obvious word to type.

yours on the other hand could for alot still as long as they go universal and get popular because its the first i seen those extensions!

$50 - $200 or $10,000 ++ if universal

i would only however i would only rate this with tennis.club

tenis.chat is too specific none the less it would be worth a lot.

$0. That's what I thought. But there are so many great domains you can take risk with in hopes they going universal, like Business.club or .shop .free .mp3 extensions. There are plenty of one-word domain names available and tey seem to go extremely fast!

That's why I kind of registered what I thought would be good projects since I love tennis. I'm against the practice of registering domains with only goal to sell them for more.

Anyways, thanks for the initial appraisals.

As long as you're not paying anything to keep these registrations in the hope that someday the domains will actually resolve, I guess there's not much downside. But if you have to pay annual renewal fees of over $1/year, I'd say the gamble isn't worth even that much.
