Q: WHAT IS THE DESCRIPTIVE

DOMAIN NAME ?

answer :

WHAT IS THE DESCRIPTIVE DOMAIN NAME

DESCRIPTIVE DOMAIN NAME is the generic domain names

A descriptive domain name is a domain name (web address) that features a word or words that describe what a visitor will find on that site. These names are typically products or services but can also be categories, processes, phrases, job titles, places and dictionary words.

Descriptive Domain Names

Explained

Most domain names fit neatly into one of 3 categories:

  • Descriptive domain names
  • Trademarked names
  • Brandable or nonsense names

Descriptive domain names

A Descriptive Domain name features a word or words that can not usually be trademarked on their own.

These names are typically products or services but can also be categories, processes, phrases, job titles, places and dictionary words. They can have any extension, however, .com is typically the most valuable and widely used.

Examples include: Offices.com, Barbados.com, CellPhones.com, YardGames.com, FreeMusicDownloads.com (note presentation)

These names have not had a common label until recently, being variously and inconsistently referred to as ‘Premium Domain Names’ and ‘Direct Navigation Domain Names’. The period of the .com boom and bust and the label of ‘cybersquatting’ have hidden the emerging opportunity that are ‘Descriptive Domain Names’.
These ‘properties’ are often also referred to as ‘Internet Real Estate’.

Examples: Printers.com, Optimizing.com, CivilEngineers.com, OrganicFood.com
