i have seen those automated web domain name appraise tools,but i want a professional to appraise a domain name i wanna buy for free. does anyone know someone that does it for free? Or if you have to pay what is the cheapest one. I found this domain for sale:


But i have no idea what my starting offer should be. What should i offer? Or is it way out of my league?

Professional and free don't typically go hand in hand for a lot of things... If you are expecting trustworthy or advice from a professional in that field - be prepared to pay for it.

my friend has been in contact with the person who owns it by email. he is trustworthy. my friend is a member of sedo(the domain name auction site),and he was the one that told me about it(my friend has been buying and selling domain names for years and he knows whats fake or not). so i know i'm not gona lose my money cuz it is friend said he thinks it worth no more than $2000 dollars but i just wanted a definite answer. anyway i have found some professional appraisel services so i'm looking now. hopefully nobody else buys it before i do.

just got the domain name appraised and got told it is worth nothing.big zero. i am not buying it. but the other domain names on his credi-t.c0m are very valuable. i was told one is worth a few hundred thousand dollars which is too much for a poor person like me.

Only short generic names are valuable. is probably available, but worthless, because you would be shutdown in a heartbeat. is worth a lot is worth zero - it looks terrible, and acheives nothing but a shoddy first impression

Anyone could have see the above domain in the original post was worthless.

By the way, I need a builder to come and do a report on my house. I wont be buying any services from them, but they need to be a professional service, not one of those 'free' services. They also need to be free however, and not charge me a cent. Can you please recommend someone?

I value it at $0.00.
You want your website to have a domain that is easy to remember.
Credi dash t I could imagine would really only be appealing if you were providing eftpos terminals to business users. Most consumers wouldnt be able to remember such a domain name.

On the other hand, values it at $80. But that is automated however.
