The Apples.com domain name is up for auction at NameJet, and with just over one day remaining in the auction, bidding is at $28,100. As I recall, Apples.com was up for auction previously, but it didn’t meet its reserve price and failed to sell.
Despite the fact that the technology company called Apple is known throughout the world, I would imagine there are safe ways to use this domain name. Obviously, apples are one of the most popular fruits in the world, and someone could use Apples.com for their orchard or for an apple shipping company. Have a look at Oranges.com to see how a descriptive domain name like this can be used despite the fact that there is a well known brand using the singular version.
