The lowdown on premium domains


When you search for domains at, you might wonder why domain names with the same extension can have different prices. For instance, our price for a .COM domain name is $10.99, but there are premium .COM domains that start at $19.99 and can even cost thousands.

The difference in prices can be a little confusing, so I’m going to try to clear things up a bit.

What makes a domain premium?

A premium domain will typically be very short, simple, and/or keyword rich. Basically, premium domains are more valuable, and that’s reflected in the price.

Unlike typical domains, premium domains have already been registered, so they’re actually being re-sold. Some are owned by registrars themselves, while others are owned by domainers and business-savvy people who list them at domain marketplaces such as SedoMLS or Afternic. You’re actually paying to have the domain transferred to you, but the process is just like registering a non-premium.

Celebrity Death Hoax, Chris Kluwe and All Things Cool and trenD!

Not going to lie to you. This one is long. But there’s so much to talk about. If you make it through the whole thing we’ll buy you a soda. First off we have people fake dying everywhere. It seems to be following successful black actors. Urkel has been put on fake death watch.

Even bigger news is that football is back. I know the world wonders why we watch American football instead of Most-everybody-in-the-world football, but there’s just something so spectacular about it. Anything can happen, and Kris Kluwe and Brandon Weedon–especially Brandon Weedon–prove that. Also, we mourn the passing of Denzel Washington.

Rated G for Giggles.
