Doctors.com? Great Premium .Com, .Net and .Org Names Lie Dormant, Parked!

It always baffles me when I come-across a parked category-killer domain. Call me old fashioned but I like to see the web’s category-defining property developed into useful websites. I think the Castello Brothers have set an excellent example by thinking of brands from the very beginning. To them each category-killer domain name meant owning a category and a brand online.

I’ve always been a firm believer that owning a category-killer .com, .net, or .org still means owning a category-killer domain. So it always saddens me when I see great domains sitting with parked pages on them when even $1,000 worth of development work could dramatically increase the domain’s revenue. Each one of these names has the potential to be an entire business, and I can understand if the owner can’t do it now…but at least put a mini-site up, a 10-page content site, something that will let you get indexed and enjoy the benefits of growing organic traffic!

Well I did a bit of searching and came-up with sixteen dormant premium .net and .org names, full of brand-potential, in my opinion! Feel free to comment and share some dormant domains you’ve discovered as well!

    Restaurant.com is definitely a fully functioning business.

    Restaurants.com doesn’t looked like it’s parked, either. The front page doesn’t exactly help their image, but they seem to have a fully functioning directory. For example:

    http://www.restaurants.com/california/los-angeles/

    Actually, several of these aren’t “parked” in the sense I know it. Find.net and Beer.net are two immediately obvious ones from your list, and Find.net even looks vaguely promising. A couple others just give me a 404 or a server-not-found.

      Thanks for the comments @Jonathan!

      Find.net and Beer.net are dormant meaning nothing is being done with them. Find.net just has a “Coming Soon” page and “Beer.net” has some random video about the Switzerland crime rate.

      Restaurants.com did look like a parking page to me at first but you are correct – it does look like a basic directory. Not a very complete directory – looks like it was probably just uploaded from a database, but still there is information about Restaurants there so I’ll give them that! Still, it doesn’t look like they’ve taken the time to make relationships with direct advertisers since Google AdSense is all over the site.

      So I still wouldn’t say Restaurants.com is being put to good use but it does look like it is a basic restaurant directory so I’ll take them off the dormant domains list 🙂

    I think they own a lot of these dormant names you are talking about plus more. Wish I could get my hands on one of them…
