    I need an opinion from BHW members.

    How much is worth a (country).com type of domain these days?

    Thanks for all your suggestions.

    Best Regards,
    John

    in your mind
    did you buy a country "country.com" and trying to sell it to their government, will it will cost very big but i think the government will fill some dispute and get the domain to them-self.

    Depends completely on the country, potentially a very decent amount.
    Can you share the name?

    Wondering if anyone ever tried that.

    But if you've got this domain and its a first world country, I think, with enough patience, you could sell it for Mid $xx,xxx.

    Are you sure it is still available, pretty certain all are taken or at least parked domains...

    The domain was bought a long time ago and the site is actually live. The owner wants to sell it and I just wanted to know an estimate.

    You could probably negotiate a nice sum with travel agency/tour operator in that country. No idea how much. Maybe make some phone calls to such companies and see if they are willing to take a bite. Could be a nice place to be as a middleman.

    That can change quite a lot.

    canada.com

    seychellesislands.com

    They're both country.

    I cant remember a case where a UDRP was brought and won by a government or state on a corresponding single word .com domain.

    Kalaio, the value of the domain is dependent on the country. The size, GDP, population etc of a country will influence this greatly, so for example Canada .com would be a seven figure domain. That said other factors play a part too, so if you have a country which is a big tourist destination it will also be very valuable, Barbados .com for example.

    Anyone who thinks all the countries are taken and built out etc, take a look at Germany .com - thats a 7 figure domain that has been like that for years.

    Kalaio, your best bet is to find a broker, if you do not know any I can point you in the right direction.

    WR,

    Anthony
