    Maybe if there was a multi-million dollar company named "Awkes" that forgot to register the domain name to prevent brandjacking (not likely). That domain name is 7 years old, has belonged to 3 people, and has absolutely no content. No, your domain name is worth as much as you paid for it for the following reasons:

    • It receives no traffic
    • It isn't indexed by any search engine
    • It doesn't generate revenue
    • It doesn't have any content
    • It's not an authority website
    • Speaking of websites, it's not even hosted yet

    If you're trying to flip domain names, you need to build the website into an authority website, work on its SEO, increase its PageRank, generate some revenue, and then ask for a price inquiry. I suppose since it's an aged domain name and it's not blacklisted you might have some luck with your endeavour. Good luck!

    I have just parked it with sedo, now they will put ads on the space, would it be better to add some original content or just try and increase its ttraffic towards the parked page?

    And when i ask of its worth anything i mean for reasons like its only 5 letters and it could quite brandable? (Imo)

    Ads you aren't getting paid for.

    I like what SharkServers said about creating a subdomain called "F". Just add some porn videos, do some CPM Adwords marketing for branding, and you have yourself a porn brand. You can call it F.awkes: Where everyone Fawkes with us

    If you want to turn it into a blog, you always want to have as much original content on there as possible. Duplicate content is a good way to get deindexed from Google and other search engines. Increasing traffic to the parked domain name is pointless. Would you ever visit a parked domain name full of advertisements? Probably not.

    If you want to start a website fast, host your domain name on freehostia for free or Bluehost for a price. Then, install the Wordpress software and create a self-hosted Wordpress and add whatever content you want.
