    i bought the domain 3 months ago and all i did was redirect people to my chaturbate link. That didnt go so well. Im just wondering if i should sell it or at least try to sell it and see what happens, i see go daddy have auctions too. My first instinct was 'why the fuck are they offering me so much money for this worthless domain'. I honestly think they just want me to list it so they will get a commission or whatever. I got a little bit of traffic but not that much. So would someone buy a domain name for $700 with .com at the end. I mean people do make real money with domain/site flipping. If someone really wanted a somain theyd pay big bucks for it .Thanks anyway

    I have several of those. They all are worth in the range your site is worth (by GoDaddy estimate). Few of them have been up for sale for more than 6 months and I listed them for absolute minimum which is $50. I haven’t sold any of them.

    GoDaddy's appraisals are mostly useless. As most users check the worth of domain before buying, GoDaddy shows higher worth than its yearly rate for the domain, so that the user is inclined towards buying it.

    It is mainly automated and pretty useless. It is worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it, e.g. ultra along EMD might get a high appraisal but nobody wants howtomakemoneyonlineinoneweek.com etc

    Don't get your hopes up. If you just registered for reg fee it is unlikely you stumbled on a premium domain that someone else did not think of. You can of course try to list it or install analytics to see if you get any type in traffic...

    If it's a premium domain, it's already high priced on GoDaddy
