Hello, I’m very sad to tell you that there is nothing of significance to appraise, that is why not one member replied I think.

My one word answer not appraisal is "DEVELOP", I am sorry to give an answer instead of appraisal, please excuse me for making this mistake I feel like doing it and will to take responsibility for doing it.

This answer is only ONE word but what made me say it has a long story. I see you as a socially responsible person based on what you said here, though you deserve a pat on the back! I spent my Sunday afternoon writing a REAL STORY for you which is some what connected to the domain extension of the domains you listed above for appraisal. It might not be as pleasing as I don't see myself as a good writer and also think and try to get better at writing on public forums, that is why I write less!, if I may add I am actually writing this for myself and taking pleasure out of it remembering stupid decisions and things I did in the past. Actually a big thank you to you for giving me this opportunity to express myself, at the same time trying to inspire a young chap/giving away some points to consider while he plans his future. It's a win win I think.

I used to own 5000 plus .info domains, got them all for 99 cents each managed the portfolio for 3 years, made 2-3 above average sales on Sedo, You can see the old threads on NamePros and DNForum where I tried to sell a bunch of them which at the time I thought are just okay and kept the best ones in my little vault and that’s a secret :D, as time passed I couldn't see the future and felt like hole in my pocket DROPPED ALL OF THEM. Namepros username is PenPal and DNForum username is NameTrader.

At the time I didn't work out a road map yet; plus other life issues beyond control I couldn't see a future and everything looked bleak. Not to boast, but I am proud that I once owned a .info portfolio that might possibly be the biggest info network on .info domains in the whole world if pursued, that is just on premium single keyword and super premium two word .info domains. I honestly think to this day that .info failed to garner attention not because it is not a .com, not because it is one character long but mainly because of too frequent or always on $0.99 promotion. I don't see a purpose there. I think about it as, what if we waste away all our fresh drinking water on the planet? we will end up treating SALT water which is unnecessary and can be avoided. I also think it’s a socially irresponsible thing to do if you can see the big picture. It is a bad business practice in my eyes and I don't appreciate it. The analogy I applied here is very APT, for those who disagree tell me why and be ready with some research to support your claims otherwise please ignore this post I will be thankful. I beg to differ in opinion and every opinion out there might be right, I just don't recognize it. Please remember all these words are coming from a guy who has tried and tested all this for quite a while, please consider this before you start criticizing me.

I quickly realized that I cannot be one of these people right now and I started reworking to get back on track. If you don’t wish to become something you will not become anything! That is why I linked to the article to make a point.

In those 3 years when I had them, if I had developed them like I think now, I would still be owning them today, just because if I had done THIS ONE THING right I would not be suffering with the burden of a lost opportunity that I got hold of (I caught the ball) but because of ONE wrong decision I have no .info portfolio now, but don't worry I have moved on it just hurts for a while when I remember this now and then.

Life can change in a split second, that is why if you look at my posts it might look like I am HARSH, but my friends I am not HARSH, it is pain that shows and a wish that no one should be in that situation like me when we can do far better.

When I was a Newbie myself I had lots of dreams and I grew with the Internet, INTERNET WAS MY RED CARPET what a privilege, what a wonderful time to I live in, why my generation has to get that opportunity? The INTERNET and I got started to see light of the day at the same time I just finished my college years and started exploring what’s out there :), when I first used it to watch adult rated material in India because believe it or not as a Young Man I saw people around me using Internet ONLY for consuming ADULT MEDIA and NOTHING ELSE, I am sure there are many others like me.

I immediately thought "This new thing is amazing, I would have been nice if I had it since I was a kidâ€Â, I know CROOKED KID MENTALITY ! fun aside, I thought about one thing if INTERNET can be used for the above purpose what all other purposes it can be used for and what all amazing things I am going to see. It was just wonderful.

This is when I didn't know anything about domains, whether they existed never even crossed my mind :D, later on when I came to know about domains I got curious and if I remember it right I am one of the guys that saw 3 character .com's available for hand registration. Didn't see the value and use back then and moved to Canada in the year 2000. I registered my first domain and the saga continues. I don't remember seeing LLL .coms available to register but LLL .orgs were still available.

To me this is all EVOLUTION and it is NATURAL not a problem, but for you guys and gals who're just getting started it is a BIG PROBLEM, just because if you are good and really talented you will make no mistakes or very few. For me and all the elders before me there is no REFERENCE to BASE OUR ACTIONS on. We did what we did based on common sense and gut instinct most of the time. Everything was new and everybody was trying out new things. Nobody actually knew what the outcome would be but everyone had their own plans worked out based on individual intelligence. YOU DON’T HAVE THE LUXURY of FAILURE, you have REFERENCES, if you have an IQ of 100 or more you can’t FAIL.

We all do certain things based on the times to live our dreams, but where we end up on the ladder is a pure result of hard work, intelligence and LUCK. I know many people who are just doing damn good in life, it's just that they don't make it to the above dot sauce list I linked to. Everyone is successful in their own right but if you always self-check your work with PEERS you trust and have regard for, you will be traveling on a path where the overall end result will be HAPPINESS and all the perks and rewards that come with it as side effects are JOY. it's WEIRD I know eh!

To Close this off I still own some .info domains, I still love .info no doubt about it, This extension was my first love, because INFO made more sense to me! still makes sense to me minus nonstop $0.99 promotion.

The .info’s I like that Bharat Internet owns are INDIATODAY.INFO & NRIS.INFO, these will be developed into simple websites that will provide relevant information only and are not for sale.

ALL THE BEST

Nanda Ravi

Excellent post nametrader!

As for the appraisal, I have to agree with nametrader. I used to own several larger Indian cities in .org and they were very illiquid and of low value. .info and smaller places aren't going to be worth much, if anything.

firstly, thank you for putting so much time for evaluating and sharing the feedback and giving suggestion.

yes, there are few of the domains which have no or low potential , if only the name is in focus. said that, i take a domain for atleast a single good reason . I try taking the capitals of the indian state in .infos or famous cities

Now, sharing my view on the feedback shared below.

Jeff: As for the appraisal, I have to agree with nametrader. I used to own several larger Indian cities in .org and they were very illiquid and of low value. .info and smaller places aren't going to be worth much, if anything.
I take city names irrespective of their area and population. My focus is the people who are looking for info of that place. How many of us will like to enjoy our holidays in hustle-bustle and how many in peacful places?.... What i want to point out is - in geo domains, the population does not matter much, its the tourist's footfall that matters a lot .

I used to own 5000 plus .info domains, got them all for 99 cents each ............... as time passed I couldn't see the future and felt like hole in my pocket DROPPED ALL OF THEM
This is the catch. People often make mistake while overlooking the running / recurring cost. I ensure while buying domain on long term investment. I treat my domains as SIP the day i buy them. Yes, i did made mistakes earlier and have been lately dropping the names (in cctld). Info is not a bad tld. i don't look at price of domain as $.99 / year. I look as $42 for 5 years. that's where it makes a difference. I totally understand the loss you had to bear, considering not only financial but also at goals you had in your mind. But then, I strongly suggest everyone to look at your domains as investment, in long-term to substain in this indudtry by the financial capability to retain the portfolio.


To me this is all EVOLUTION and it is NATURAL not a problem, but for you guys and gals who're just getting started it is a BIG PROBLEM, just because if you are good and really talented you will make no mistakes or very few.
When I had the first taste of computers in 1992, it was all just the audio tape type cassettes and type writer like device by name "ZX Spectrum". At that time, what caught my eye was basic networking capability. In 1999, i had my first domaining taste. In 2005, when .in arrived, i invested in craps mostly. So, what i am looking to point out is, irrespective if a person is new to the industry or old, a fresh product in the market with lot of capability makes a person rethink on the strategy and sometimes ending up making the same mistakes in a dfferent way ;_ ...

You have taken out so much time and took so much effort that i really respect you and your honest opinion in sharing your experience and to ensure that the fellow domainers do not, should not make the same mistakes. thank you NameTrader.

just want to make it very simple, hope this could help.

if the domain is very specific to a region or person or a particular thing then just parking domain will not help much. have websites on them and provide informative content specific to the topic. (develop your domain)

Generic and common topic and more frequently used common business terms / names would be valued more even when it is Just parked ( parking will do).
