I missed out on the oppertunity of obtaining toxid.com last summer. If I would have known someone else was thinking of purchasing it, I would have gotten it sooner. Should I go ahead and get toxid.net for cheap? Are .net names becoming as popular as .com? I'm so pissed at myself for passing up on toxid.com. I just waited to long. Also, there are two other .com's that I am interested in, dyce.com I can get for $1,500 and shamco.com I can get for $800. I own shamco.org. Do those prices seem fair for those 2 names? I probably wouldn't buy both dyce and shamco, I'd pick just one. These names will more and likely just be for a personal website of mine, but I want a good memorable name. Thanks for any feedback.
Those prices seem a bit high if you arre going for a personal site. Why not take "sham" and then run it through the domain explorer on whois.sc some interesting .com domains on there you can get for normal reg fees
This is the list whois.sc generates
Please be careful mentioning any untaken domains here at webhostingtalk - I'm not saying there is a bad crowd around here, but there are domain name hunters and they 'might' be irresponsible and take your name if you show a lot of interest in it.
The truth is, you just never know who is reading, and what their motives might be - so it's best to play it safe.
It's mean, but it's life, and I've seen it happen before - just giving you a head's up.
Since toxid.com and toxid.org are both taken, I'd say toxid.net is worth registering ... to a certain extent. And yes, it's better not to publicize ANY unregistered domain name ANYWHERE. You'll never know. You're lucky that it's still available, after almost 90 minutes.

I think if you were thinking about the .com and its only recently gone you'd be better off looking for another similar quality .com that is available rather than going for the .net. .net is a long way behind and like most alternate extensions is easily confused for the .com.
