A regular reader and contributor named Todd offered a blog post suggestion that I thought was good. Todd suggested,
“Why don’t you have a post where each person submits one of their favorite domains and then let the readers give their thoughts on each one. I think it would help many people understand what makes a good domain by letting people critique the entries.”
I would imagine most domain investors have a favorite domain name that they own. I think it’s good to get feedback about a domain name from third parties who don’t have a vested interest in the domain name. I invite you to offer a critique of domain names listed in the comment section by visitors and to list your own favorite domain name. The one rule is that the domain name you list must be owned by you or a company you control.
My personal favorite domain name owned by my company is Lilac.com. I think Lilac.com is a versatile domain name that could be used by a company in any number of industries. Lilac.com is short, has a dual meaning (color and flower), and is a friendly/positive term. One potential knock is that it is more of a feminine sounding brand, although that is also an attribute. At this point, I am content to wait until the right (6 figure) offer comes around to part with this domain name.
I invite you to critique my favorite domain name and post your favorite domain name for others to give feedback.
One thing to keep in mind with this article. People will post their comments with their opinions. People can be brutal sometimes. You might really like a particular domain name, and others will hate it. If you may have concerns about what other people might say about a particular domain name, it’s best not to list it.
