I bought the domain SouthernAss.com awhile back, hoping to develop it. Sadly, I decided against it. I plan to pay for a professional appraisal* but decided to get some insight via this forum first. Keep in mind that:
1.) It's a .com, the holy grail of extentions
2.) Doesn't contain numbers/hyphens
3,) It isn't random (ie 2 words that aren't in any way related combined, such as webrabbit.com or domainhealthcare.com)
4.) The adult industry is the #1 industry online
5.) The domain can be used for two purposes (Think of a** like, say, Conan O'Brien)
I rarely say this but I think the domain could reach 4 figures (even if it's in the early figures) but what do you ppl think? Is 4 figures pushing the envelope? Thank you all in advance.
*If you want to say something in the nature of, "Don't do that-it's inaccurate and a total waste of money," just shut up & keep your thoughts to yourself. I've seen many ppl in this forum who don't give a d*** about these things. If you're anti-professional apprasals, then don't reply 'cause nobody needs/wants to hear it.

As the domain name now? MAYBE Mid $XXX with a Working site with traffic etc... you could make a nice MID $XXXX Quickly!!!
Plus it is always nice to see a SouthernAss.com From the South As well.
Want my suggestions? Well your going to get them Work up the site, get your PR going, links, etc... take two months to market it sell it to a Reseller for your High $XXX Low $XXXX or keep it for around six months to a year gain money off it as well and sell it to an End User for your Mid-High $XXXX
Thank you both for your replies. I'm thinking of developing it now (I'd like a quick buck but I do know that a little effort can really make a difference in value). I'll see what my time will allow me to do. Again, thank you both
This name might be worth the $8 you spent to register it, but as a name alone, that's it.
WesternAss.com, NorthernAss.com and even EasternAss.com are all unregistered, and available now, and there is a reason. The names are just not valuable on their own. 'Eastern' could even apply to 'middle east' women which is a popular segment in the adult industry, yet still nobody has registered it.
As far as .com being the holy grail, this is true, but that doesn't mean any name or word combination is worth something. Like anything else though, if you develop it, and build content and traffic, then sure, it will have value. The name alone though just doesn't.
Good luck though. I hope you build it. I'm an assman myself.
You're right about the .com thing. Every .com isn't worth major cash or anything.
But you misunderstood the concept of this domain. Nobody refers to pornography as, say, nothern porn. But the term southern porn is very widely used in the adult entertainment industry. Sure, NorthernAss.com wouldn't be worth much at all but ya better believe SouthernAss.com would be worth the registration fee and then some (and by some, I'm not talking the 2 figure range).
