Two interesting data points to look at when investing in one-word domain names

 MorganLinton.com: When it comes to buying domain names as investment, there are a lot of things to consider. If I were to write a post about all the things you should consider, it would be really long and boring, plus there’s entire courses like DNAcademy that do a great deep dive into topics like this.

New site shows available one-word domain names

There aren’t many available, it turns out.

OneWord.Domains shows available one word domain names.

A new website helps people find available one-word domain names—and proves just how rare they are in popular top level domains.

Steven Tey, a data science student at the Minerva Schools at Keck Graduate Institute, launched OneWord.Domains to show available one-word domains in a handful of popular extensions.

The site currently shows domains in .ai, .app, .co, .com and .io.

While the site certainly identifies some great domains, there is a big problem: many of the domains have registry premiums.

For example, Million.co is an excellent domain and is available for registration. But it has a registry premium on it and will set you back a few thousand dollars to add it to your portfolio.

You can register .io and .ai domains that are on the site at regular rates, but you’ll notice a dearth of good names.

In many ways, rather than helping you find good domains to register, the site is another reminder of how difficult it is to find great domains to register. Maybe a two-word domains site would be more helpful.

I’ve been investing in .IO for years now and while it’s a small part of my portfolio, it has become more and more meaningful. In total I have around 50 .IO domains and I […]
