$25,000 for a Domain Name is (not) Crazy.

Or is it?

I registered my first domain name in 1996 and have been involved in more than $50 million in sales since then. If there is one word I would never use about domain name prices, it would be “crazy.”
Crazy, by Google’s definition, refers to something that’s “mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way.” Synonyms include insane, deranged, lunatic and — my favorite — out of one’s mind.
Every domain name transaction has a buyer and a seller. The price is all but relative and starts with the seller’s asking price.
This is the only place where a little bit of crazy may come in.
Owning a mediocre domain and asking $250,000 for it may seem a little crazy, but if you get a counteroffer then crazy is good. This type of crazy also falls in line with the simple notion of “if you don’t ask you don’t receive” — a basic foundation of anyone selling anything.
Where the word crazy gets thrown out the window is when the potential buyer makes an offer. People do not throw money away. When a counteroffer is made, the exact value of that domain name to their business is known and a financial offer is made that represents this value.
So, before a selling price is established you already have two very sane people negotiating a deal. There is no crazy here.
For first-time buyers and people not familiar with the domain name industry, it’s important to realize that good domain names are incredibly valuable assets today. There is a thriving investor market for premium domain names and an ever-increasing demand for one-word and two-word meaningful domains from companies. In fact, if you have interest in a good domain name then you can almost bet someone else has inquired about the domain name in the past.
How are Domain Names Priced?
It all depends on who you ask. Every investor has their own pricing model, and different expectations of return. Some only sell a few a year while others like to price them lower and focus more on quantity. However one prices a domain name is a personal choice and, as with almost any other rare investment, price is all but relative to the seller’s interest in money and the expected value relative to the buyer’s needs.
Over the last 20 years I have been on the receiving end of almost every imaginable rebuttal for price. From the student looking for a deal (coming from a high-level executive e-mail at a major bank) to “I’m a nun, please can you give me a deal” to one of our most famous internal threads where the person’s maximum budget was initially $50 and then, magically, a few weeks later they were able to come up with $85,000 to buy the name.
Our job as brokers is to represent the client (whether a buyer or seller) and that includes educating both sides of the fence on domain name values. Sometimes the seller’s asking price is so high we prefer to work on other opportunities and sometimes a buyer needs to understand why domain names are valued so much.
Our primary initial goal is to qualify people. Just like an auction house may require a deposit to secure a bidding handle or a real estate agent request your profile before seeing a luxury home, we are focused only on negotiating with people who can qualify as a potential buyer, relative to the seller’s price expectations.
Of course, not everybody is qualified. In the spirit of transparency and education here are a few of our favorite lines from people inquiring about domain names, and a typical reaction from the seller.
“But It’s My Domain Name.”
Personally, this is our favorite statement from a potential buyer. It’s almost the equivalent of us telling the owner of the oceanfront beach home — “wait that’s my house” — explaining that we always dreamed of the home, so in essence (because we had a dream) it’s our house. Maybe we can bring the word crazy back in here.
A few people may actually have the right to a domain name with a valid trademark, but owning a trademark is not a general “pass over the domain please” piece of paper. Trademark law is very complicated and many things, including the use of the domain, when it was registered, its generic factors and so much more, all contribute to whether or not having a trademark provides you with a right to a domain name.
In fact, it’s very rare for a trademark holder to win a generic domain. For most people, the best strategy is typically to make an offer for the domain because, if your case loses, you can bet the owner is going to likely substantially raise the price. Domain name owners who traffic in typos and collect trademark names typically do not argue since they know from the start there is risk associated with these. Generic domain name holders, on the other hand, will typically fight to the end to keep their asset and they usually prevail.
“Why $25,000?”
I needed a number for a subject line, if you really want to know. Whether its $25,000 or $250,000 is not really relevant. What is relevant is how much a domain name is worth to your business versus the asking price. Remember the asking price is usually just a starting number.
The reason I picked this number arbitrarily is because many domain name owners do the same thing. Before reacting to a price you need to read and understand more about domain names. Having to explain why a great domain is priced so high is only going to get a vague response purely because the sellers we represent are looking for buyers who understand values. Asking us to justify an asking price pretty much discounts any credibility you have as a buyer. However, if you put a reasonable counteroffer in and explain why, then odds are we can work with the seller on that. Very few high-valued domains are ever sold at asking price. There is almost always some negotiation.
“We’re a non-profit and our budget is only $2,000”
Cool. We are not.
The good news is that, if you are a real foundation and the domain is going to be used, then some owners may be influenced by that. Some, not many, but some.
The bad news is that a lot of people try this line and it’s not something many even respond to anymore.
“I’m a student and don’t have a lot of money”
Cool. We wish you the best of luck in the future. Come back when you have a job, and savings.
“I let this domain expire and I want it back.”
Owners do not steal domains. They buy them in auctions and from other owners. If your name expired and you forgot to pay the eight bucks then sorry — win some, lose some.
“Let me think on it. Maybe I’ll buy it later.”
Okay, this is where we need to transition out of common replies and talk about domain name values. You never want to assume you can buy it later.
Hobi Michalec of Domain Holdings wrote a fabulous article on this exact scenario when selling the domain name BlueStar.com. Patient and/or aggressive tactics can often backfire on you.
Paul Graham, one of Silicon Valley’s most notable venture capitalists and co-founder of the Y-combinator seed capital firm, wrote an article in August (2015) entitled “Change Your Name”. One of his best comments was “Sometimes founders know it’s a problem that they don’t have the .com of their name, but delusion strikes a step later in the belief that they’ll be able to buy it despite having no evidence it’s for sale. Don’t believe a domain is for sale unless the owner has already told you an asking price.”
Life is too short and time is money. You often can’t afford not to have that domain name.
Why are domain names worth so much?
To answer this question you really need to get past the initial cost of a domain name and understand why a premium domain name is so valuable.

Back in the mid-90s, domain names were free and today they are generally available for anywhere between $8 and $100 annually. But, like real estate, almost all the good .com domains are primarily gone — and if they were available today, no one would ever let you register them for anywhere close to eight dollars.
Keeping in line with real estate, it’s fair to say that almost everyone reading this would buy real estate today at 1995 prices. Hindsight is 20/20 except if the Blue Jays win the World Series, and then I will say I knew that.
You see, domain names are not just a rare asset — a collectible or a modern art piece only a few will ever see. The right domain name can save you thousands (even millions) in marketing costs, help expand your brand authority, increase your brand recognition and make you and your company look smarter. In short, a domain name is everything.
Domain Name Cost vs. Other Media
A $25,000 domain name is still incredibly cheap compared to the value received by almost any other marketing source.
A large roadside billboard can cost upwards of $30,000 for every four-week period, according to Blueline Media.
According to Entrepreneur magazine, radio ads can easily cost $8,000 to $12,000 a month for smaller companies.
The average small business using AdWords spends between $9,000 and $10,000 per month, according to Wordstream.
Let’s try this again, but annually.
A large roadside billboard can cost upwards of $390,000 annually, according to Blueline Media.
According to Entrepreneur magazine, radio ads can easily cost $96,000 to $144,000 a year for smaller companies.
The average small business using Google AdWords spends between $108,000 and $120,000 annually, according to Wordstream.
So what happens the next year?
You get to spend it all again. A domain name, on the other hand, typically has a single fee of less than $100 the second year.
$25,000 is sounding cheap.
Because it is.
Whether you own a bad domain name or a good domain name it still needs to be advertised. Our media comparisons above are shown for you to understand how much money is spent on other areas of your business to put the relative cost of a domain name in perspective.
