Domain name worth

A person wants to buy one of my domain names; it's a name that has a major keyord in it. Is there a place on the web where I can check the worth of a domain name?

Could search on eBay (ack, I suggested a competitor)for domain names of similar keyword content.. Also, price would depend on how much work you have done on the site or if you were just sitting on the name.

Yes, that makes a difference; widgets.com is worth a lot more than freewidgets.com, for example.

Some domain name forums allow you to post domain names for appraisal, which might help you to get a rough idea of your name's worth. Not this one, though.

Hi Librarc and welcome to WebmasterWorld and the Domain Dorum.

Our mission is educational, so if you want to learn something about valuing a domain I'd suggest you read this thread about valuing domain names [webmasterworld.com]

Domain valuations posted in forums tend to offer some guidance but I'd never price a domain based upon such input. Take a close look at the ideas in the thread and you'll understand why.
