Is this domain name worth anything?

I bought a 3 letter .us.com on a whim, I'm under no illusions that the TLD is rubbish, but is there a good chance I can sell it for more than I bought it for (17)?

you may not post domain names in this forum.

see the charter: POSTING DOMAIN NAMES IN THE FORUM IS NOT ALLOWED

FYI, what you have is a subdomain not a true domain name, i can't imagine it's got any value

Sorry I edited it out, by sub domain do you mean like co.uk is a sub domain as well? Also where is the best place to try and sell it?

.co.uk is a subdomain of uk
ditto: org.uk, gov.uk, etc.etc

however they are sold by nominet, which is the official uk registry.
the name you mentioned is run by a private company in the same way that if i bought:

example.com i could sell/license/rent/lease/whatever names such as
example.example.com

Is it not the registry of:

[centralnic.com...]

? They list us.com as one of their domain extensions.

Oh I see, they bought these us.com, ru.com domains, then they just sell the subdomains off?

That's crappy!

Yep, just be more careful next time and, by the way, I buy genuine example.us or example.com names for about 5.00 each.
