Domain Of The Day:

Today or really tonight, I wanted to talk about the importance of word order in domains names, and there’s a domain dropping right now that is a perfect example.

I love two word .COMs. So do many other investors because they have a solid track record. That being said, word order matters a lot and switching the word order could turn a six-figure domain into a three or four figure domain.

This is exactly what happens with this name and is also the reason why I really wouldn’t be interested in buying it. The killer two word .COM you’re looking for is, that’s a great name, is not nearly as good. When I’m looking for good investments I focus on getting the best word order to maximize my potential return, word ordering issues like this could make the name unsellable or at least very hard to sell at a profit.

Now it’s your turn, what do you think? Comment and let your voice be heard!

    I agree, one example to implies good funding (financial services), whereas means “pls help us to support well project somewhere there is a shortage of clean water”. Word order of such domain name completely changes the value of the domain name.

    I would tend to agree with you for the most part although, if memory serves, there are probably a number of radio stations who use ‘music live’ as a tag line.

    At least 8 bidders disagree with you.

    $770 at Godaddy with 8 days to go.

    I actually like MusicLive better than LiveMusic.

    But that’s purely from an aesthetic point of view. I’m fairly certain the analytics tell a different story.
