Domain Appraisal

Before buying or selling a domain name, you need to know one thing: how much is the domain name worth? But assessing your domain's value is no simple task.


Why MediaOptions is the Best Domain Appraisal Service

We absolutely believe that there is a buyer for almost every domain name—and when we locate that ideal buyer, they attach unique value to that domain. It's not something a computer can spit out for you with a simple algorithm: the buying and selling process is a skill set that comes with time and experience.

MediaOptions is widely considered an expert on the subject of domain name valuation and domain appraisal. Our CEO, Andrew Rosener, has been extensively interviewed on his data and metrics-driven approach to domain value.

There is no random, “gut-based” version of reality here at Media Options. We let facts and statistics drive our analysis, and we are relentless as we unearth all of the details that we can to help the valuation.

The MediaOptions Domain Appraisal Process

At MediaOptions, we do not provide an automated appraisal or use a domain appraisal tool. Free valuator tools like Estibot, Sedo, Domainindex, or GoDaddy can miss important factors that cause a skewed valuation.

As we work to facilitate domain sales, rather than relying on a domain valuation tool, we appraise each site by hand under the eye of an expert—in most cases our CEO.

There are more than 20 metrics that go into every single domain appraisal we do. When appraising your domain, we consult niche experts in order to provide you the most accurate appraisal of domain name value possible. At the end of the process you will be provided with a PDF certificate of appraisal. Most appraisals will be completed and sent to you by email within 3 business days (often less).

Some of the factors that go into determining the value of a domain name include:

  • Search Volume for the exact keyword(s) contained in your domain name

  • Cost Per Click (CPC) for the keyword(s) in your domain

  • Age of the domain

  • Length of the domain

  • Number of Words in the domain

  • SEO value of the domain name and website rankings according to authorities such as Alexa, Moz, and Google

  • Google Search Engine PR rank

  • Link Profile

  • Competition for the keyword in your domain

  • Number of advertisers for the keyword

  • Brand potential

  • Easy to pronounce

  • Easy to spell for the end user

  • Easy to replace with similar domains?
