Yesterday, I published an article about Heritage Auctions brokering the Black.com domain name. I also linked to an article I wrote with quite a few publicly recorded color .com domain name sales over the years. Some of those sale prices seem fairly strong and others seem like deals today.
I am curious about what readers think would be the most valuable color .com domain name in today’s market. For the sake of discussion, let’s confine this to “real” colors that are primarily colors. For instance, while “wine” is technically a color, Wine.com should not be considered when discussing the most valuable color .com domain name. You don’t need to limit this to primary colors though. Pink.com would be fine to consider.
If you had an unlimited amount of money but you could only buy the most valuable color .com domain name, what name would you pick? I’ll share my thought about this in a comment later on so I don’t influence anyone too soon.
Red.com. Short, easy to pronounce and write. No obvious negative connotations.
What about the old fashioned term “Redlight district? Definitely negative, but you are probably not a dinosaur–to know that. ha
Red -popular color, 3char
Lots of industries marijuana, eco friendly, alternative energy, agriculture, money etc.
Toss up between red.com and green.com
Black is the most prestigious color there is.
Black is also always associated with luxury and privilege.
If only I had a million Dollars 🙁
without ANY doubt.
Green is second.
Color.com is worth the most and it is a personal genetics company.
Forgot about Gold.com
That would have to be up there
Gold.com is also the first one that came to mind for me before I read the post.
However, you need to reread the post because that one does not qualify for consideration in this thread:
“For the sake of discussion, let’s confine this to “real” colors that are primarily colors. For instance, while “wine” is technically a color […]”
The color of money.
I would say Red for short, Green for Money and Blue because is color used a lot in clothing, websites…
definitely not blue (blue, blew, bleu)
I honestly can’t pick one as the most valuable, because a number of them are so strong and valuable for so many reasons, but I can say that in my view these are the ones that are at least tied for most valuable, in alphabetical order:
Black, Blue, Green, Red, White
However, re Black.com I will say that it is obviously pure no-brainer blatancy that it is worth millions.
Black.com would/should be the most valuable.
Green.com second best.
orange is a strong brand and a powerful color.
Great one but does not qualify for same reason as gold above.
Green by far. It’s a color but it also stands for earth, eco, environment, natural, organic, solar and a hundred other related things.
Owned by IAC. They own some outstanding brands.
Gold is my first choice…
If that is not considered a color…then…
Orange is the new black…
they are both valued the same but orange has 15 times more searches than black…
So orange is better
But i like red and pink much better…
Red is good for a brand, fashion maybe. Someone said red has no negative connotations but, in my mind at least, it is associated with debt.
Green is good for various reasons listed above.
Black is not a colour.
Blue – today.yougov.com/news/2015/05/12/why-blue-worlds-favorite-color/
I would definitely go for blue. It sounds very positive.
I do like black, but this color does have some negative connotations.
In any case, it would depend on which market I was targeting. Some colors are popular in certain countries but hated in others.
In descending order – green, blue, red.
Red.com simply best in all manner in termt of shorter, Brandable, memorable etc
Gold is money, worldwide and timeless.
Gold.com, Silver and other metal colors (Platinum, Copper, etc.) would for sure be valuable.
Pink.com would be popular because of girls but also because of the famous lingerie dealer’s line of clothing named that.
indigo… gotta be indigo.
Short and brandable.
Hey, what about Pink !!
Great, but not first tier great.
Really like the singer though.
Some tougher ones…
– 3 chars
– means the web or network in Spanish
Okay, so the cat’s out of the bag about GOLD, even though posting it here violates the “rules” of the question no less.
So just remember what I used to post frequently in the blogs about this new TLD:
Interesting: I am wondering if I should add Gold to my report. Probably will.
I would say yes. 🙂
Black / Purple
Black and Purple are getting the most favorite choice of men and women on color selection.
Still Black.com may worth more as a Brand value.
Blue: is most loved color through the centuries (and my middle name). Green: is big for current environmental awareness/financial endeavors. Black has power with dark followers and black clothing trend are predominant. Red because it so happens to be a lll.com.
As far as what order?
Hard one, but, I’d say:
pink.com Threw that in just because I’m a girl.
For information, there are several new gTLDs dedicated to Colors:
I, personally, love Blue.
However, “G” results:
The one with most searches like someone said, Blue. Simply because people love blue!
Orange makes it for me!
