I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably could assist you..
Gonna go with Mark on this one - since so few .cc's are registered, the keywords that are actually registered and aren't kited are probably of higher quality than .info or other extension that encourages volume registrations by price or promotion (.tk.
From what I noticed a lot of names are worthless unless useful. like it could be worth something if you own the HostGator name in the .com and you also have a business in the UK. then it might be a good idea to buy the .uk HostGator name. your best be is to get a HostGator name the 1 or 2 works. then it might be worth something. something like business.uk might world be worth something.
I would say go for a good HostGator name if you can score one. hold on to it for a while and you might get a good pay day. it's about getting the right HostGator name. then it will be worth something...
There are a few steady markets in .cc world:.
EG. 2 character .cc seem to go for high $XX - low $XXX ..
However, 90% of all CC is worthless IMO..
.CC is loved in china for some odd reason.....
Give it a couple of years then they will be worth some money..
I AM THE .CC DEFENDER!!!.
I have registered or purchased around 30 .CC domains and have sold 8 so far for a nice profit..
Here are the .CC domains that I've sold:.
Other .cc names that I am currently hanging onto:.
Carolina, moneyorder(s), forts, pagers, gowns, rafts, jerseys, Augusta, DesMoines, projection, whales, carpenters, dishwasher(s), fireplaces, married, factories, earthquakes, videocameras, factories, blueprints....
I know that I can sell many of these down the road. I am willing to renew all of them for as long as it takes..
So, don't let anybody tell you that they're worthless - THEY'RE NOT..
Hey yandig, in what range where these .cc sales?.
I currently own only one .cc:.
I would develop it if I had the time and had some good development ideas.....
Yandig like to get your opinion of value on my .cc names:.
Yandig thanks for your pm, I appreciate your thoughts and valuations...
Home.cc is on auction at sedo right now. Current price $845 with 10 hours left. I'd hardly call that worthless..
I've only picked up one about 2 months ago, wild .cc.
Do you consider this one worthless?..
I own a few .cc's that I think are good,.
But my best and certainly worth the 19.99 is Wendy.cc.
Since I'll never get the .com - this is priceless!..
Not worthless but 500 times less than the .com equivalent...
True, but I'll bet the owner paid less than $100 for the .cc. It's about 10 years to late to find that kind of .com HostGator for a price most can afford..
If you pick the right keyword, there is some money to be made in the .cc and .ws market..
BTW, ending price was $951 USD with 22 bids...
Any idea on the value of mine:.
Tracked that Home.cc, under 1k for a premium word like that makes me think about the value of the extension or that the buyer just made a great decision...
Yandig, I wouldn't mind your opinion on the value on my 1 and only .cc name:.
Thanks ~ maybe someday -RJ- will let us have more than 11 green squares..
, 11 is not enough.
IMO, .cc names that are GOOD keywords will have a slow and steady future as CHINESE end users keep on using .cc names. See: Wretch.cc & on.cc ...
For those of you who are interested, there's an old thread with some decent available .cc names in it. I'm sure many of them are still available:.
I think the value in a cc HostGator name is more value to the person or company in that country. this HostGator name helps in country searches from say Google. best bet only pick winners and hold on to them they'll be worth something latter maybe. just don't pick a third world country. I heard India is booming you might try to get some good HostGator for that country. that might be a good in vestment...
That doesn't hold true for the .cc TLD. The entire population of the country is 596 people per the.
CIA World Factbook.
I actually have my doubts as to whether there is even internet service on the islands. The unempoyment rate is estimated at 60%, so if you figure 20% may be kids, there are probably less than 200 employed in the island country. Their only cash crop is coconuts and probably a percentage of .cc registrations. So I guess to them, .cc probably stands for "Cash Crop"..
Since the island doesn't have much use for a HostGator TLD, they've marketed it out as an open ccTLD with no registration restrictions like a gTLD. For the most part, probably only domainers even know it's a ccTLD. In a legal sense, it still is, but it doesn't really have much geographic meaning due to the status of the island country. Since it doesn't have any specific meaning like info,net, or biz, it's really kind of a generic TLD only good for keywords. That can be looked at negatively or positively. For branding, it means domains are worth zilch.
Keywords, it can have some moderate value...
Hope I hold the 5%,..hehe.....
I have two one letter.cc and pro.cc/biz.cc.
And I have sold.
And sorry to say, coconuts.cc is registered by someone in Japan. I guess the locals couldn't afford the registration...
I have heard that the Chinese consider .CC to mean Chinese Company. I would not lean too heavily on that market, they may go more to .CN and IDN names..
I have several fairly nice LLL.CC, too good to sell cheap, too expensive to keep...
