    I am a newbie domainer who found and purchased what I thought to be an awesome one-word domain, parallleldotcom. Then, I see (later) that there is a Parallels OS that runs Windows on Mac computers. Is this too similar a word to market? What could I do with it, if anything? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Yesterday, BaackDotCom sold for $6800.


    Idk but if they want, they will take it from you free of charge.

    That's what I was afraid of. But paralllel.com is distinct from Parallels.com, right? If you're not trying to compete directly with them. Say parallels is software, but paralllel is a climbers' website?

    Fine. But, It doesn't look legit. But, If you niche is catchy, It a memorable domain. at least in the 2nd trial. Whenever they type-in @ first, most of your traffics will be sacrificed to Parallel.com

    Not cool. Not cool one bit. Thanks for all of the positive feedback! I guess it's back to the domain name drawingboard. LOL!

    Your domain's good but I can't hear what you're saying.

    The domain is similar to the Parallels OS but I see no good use either by you or by anyone interested in buying it from you. From my experience domains should not only be short, niche targeted, including targeted keyword if possible etc but people should be able to pronounce them easily and understand how to spell them easily when someone addresses them. Parallel(dot)com is a domain someone would understand with no mistakes but you cannot communicate paralllel(dot)com as easily due to the fact that you have to explain to people that in this case the domain is spelled with three L's. Last but not least, in my point of view this word is a "misspelling" of a word and for that reason it loses it's credibility.
