    Domain name appraisal. Worth this much?

    http://www.leapfish.com/domain_name_appraisal.php

    If you go to the above link and plug in a domain it'll give you some stats on the domain that they use to automatically calculate the worth of a domain. I know it can be a pain to come up with a good domain name, but I'm curious how accurate something like this can be.

    On a whim I plugged in a domain I've had for the last 7 years, gamesentry.com and it came up with a total of $20,000. I'd sell that domain today if I could get that, haha.

    But seriously, what is a domain worth, and how would you go about getting a real appraisal, let alone getting that money.

    Meant to say also, isn't a better determination of a domain looking at what similiar domains are selling for?

    it's worth what it earns or you can get someone to pay for it. that software is good for a laugh, not much more.

    I just traded a domain name of mine to a friend for another in return. The one I received is valued at $91 and the one I traded away is valued at $2006!!! According to this company I just got ripped off!!!!!! My portfolio is worth a few thousand according to them.

    The domain name market is more speculative than the stock market. JMHO.

    I have more that 200 domains which I THINK are good, but nobody has come to me as yet to offer anything for the purchase

    I got a few of them appraised at sedo.com and most of then were appraised to be above $1500 each.

    I bet the leapfish corporate theme song is "high hopes" ...

    cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
    He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

    So any time your feelin bad
    stead of feelin sad
    Just remember that ram
    Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

    All problems just a toy balloon
    Theyll be bursted soon
    Theyre just bound to go pop

    Apparently my main domain - the one I use for my personal site, Blog, forums etc is worth $875k - I'll take 50% of that happily!!

    A domain is worth what somebody is willing to pay for it really.
    Until somebody actually makes an offer on a domain it's real world value is nothing - except to it's current owner from either an advertising or marketting point of view.

    My main domain has probably got such a "high value" as it is short (4 character .com) but that really doesn't mean much alone.

    as you can see, these services are usually completely worthless
    what may be a worthless domain to one person may be priceless to another
    With more success comes more expense!
