Interesting Domain Name of the Day 09-26-14

Today I thought I would start a new series called IDN.

So what is an IDN?

Well, if you are native non-English speaking or are a domain investor you might know that “IDN” is usually referred to in the context of Internationalized Domain Names. Basically web addresses with non-standard ASCII keyboard characters for us English only web surfers.

It really doesn’t matter, because my IDN’s are “Interesting Domain Names” of the day.

My site, my rules.

These names will be one of two types:

  1. Names that I see on TV, adverts on roadways/vehicles/tv/radio, or on actual businesses.
  2. Names that I see for sale or on the drop lists or sales lists I receive

They will usually be good which is why I noticed them, but occasionally I will notice one because it is horrendously bad.  I will try to offer commentary on why they are good or bad just to get them out of my head and start consolidating notes on why Domain Names are good or not – thus why they have value.

Domain Name of the Day

Today’s first interesting domain name is:

Interesting Domain Name

Interesting Domain Name:

Most everyone in the U.S. will recognize Enterprise as the company who rents cars with a unique twist – “We’ll pick you up!

We use Enterprise for our corporate car rentals and I saw this Commercial Truck rental sporting the same brand.

Domain Name Pros:

  • Aside from being the exact match for their corporate brand, the word Enterprise sparks all kinds of positive connotations in English.
    • it means a company in one definition
    • it means a project in another definition
    • and another it means taking action in difficult projects
  • It is a common one word dictionary domain name. Huge plus.
  • 10 letters – not bad
  • Fairly easy to spell
  • Very common

Domain Name Cons:

  • Not much to talk about here – maybe could be misspelled with a z giving Enterprize dot com
    • Side note – I went to that site and it redirects to Enterprize dot in which is weird, but they also had ads on the side and the one I saw was for National Car Rental – they better be careful or they will be getting a UDRP to take that domain name


Today’s Second interesting domain name is: from Domain Shane’s daily list here.

TheVortexWhy is it interesting? I won’t go into a whole list of pros and cons, but aside from being a decent name (remove the “The” and it is easily a 5 figure domain) it is also a restaurant in Atlanta with killer burgers.

Oh, it also has around 18 million matches on Google search so it should be flippable based on the current $444 price.

I may get in on this one because it would definitely be an upgrade for the restaurant/bar in Atlanta which is currently using

If you plan to bid on it, please go to Shane’s link above – I think he might get a commission, but even if he doesn’t he gets some ad love and traffic and he spends a lot of time coming up with these so check him out if you don’t regularly…

That is it for today.  I hope you like these posts.

For each of these daily posts, you can comment below with ONE domain name you have for sale – must give the exact name, own it yourself, prefer pricing BIN.

Let me know what you think!
