Daily Poll: How Much is Excel.com Worth?

Hilco Streambank is marketing the sale of Excel.com. I think Excel.com is an exceptional domain name. It is short, and it has a positive connotation. I could see Excel.com becoming a widely known standalone brand if none of the brands currently using “Excel” in their branding opt to purchase the domain name.

According to a press release distributed by Hilco to promote the sale, “Hilco Streambank has set an initial offer deadline of October 18, 2018 and set a minimum opening bid amount of $500,000.” If you have an interest in acquiring the domain name, be in touch with Dmitriy Chemlin, Richelle Kalnit, or Jack Hazan.

For today’s daily poll, I would like to know what you think Excel.com is worth. Share your additional thoughts in the comment section:

  1. The goodwill of the word primarily exists in Microsoft’s TM, at least as a word.com in tech/internet world. Tricky situation. Such a great domain but branding aspect quite complex.

  2. The % of people answering the poll below the seven figure mark is truly shocking, for all the reasons Elliot said and more (assuming they are honest answers). In fact, utterly clueless, and presumably these are “domainers.”

    This one’s a huge winner and anyone below solid seven figures at least is just plain crazy. And I’ve been using MS Excel for many years, and it only helps not hurts. Honestly, not exactly hard or rocket science or the least bit restrictive to avoid stepping on that.
