    Hey guys, I was searching for some expired domains and I found this one that is the name of a very famous stylist in my country. The only downside is that it has my countries TLD.
    DA:27
    PA:31
    TF:19
    CF:29
    350 Incredibly good backlinks from news websites in my country and so on.
    How much would this be worth?

    EDIT: The domain was registered in 1996, 21 years

    if she owns the rights and trademark she could just have it taken from you but hey its just the cost of a domain so worth the risk in some cases. you may make some quick easy money but if the domain is this persons name and they own that trademark then you could face some issues

    Yes the domain is her name. There won't be any issues, if I get any warning from her I'll just give her the domain. Not gonna contest it.

    So you would sell it knowing that there might be an issue with it? just contact the previous owner and go from there.

    Yep, thats a sexy domain. Except you said its in the hair style niche? Style niche...could be worth a pretty penny to anyone in that niche or yourself enjoy the juice

    It's a foreign TLD, so that's nothing too special. I would be more curious about the RD and the exact TLD that the domain has.

    Foreign TLDs are not too often spammed, so history wise it should be fine if nothing showed up in Archive.

    If the domain uses someone's name, like "JohnDoe.com", then you are surely not breaking any trademarks. You can't exactly trademark a name. But, if the domain goes like "JohnDoeHairstylist.com", that could be a problem.

    i wonder how many members just buy penalised domains, put some useless but unique content on it, then fire a reconsideration request.

    afaik they flag penalised domains even if they take off the penalty, but does it make it harder to rank such a site?

    Yeah ranking a site after a manual action feels like ranking a new site.
