Domain Assessment Tool --

Network Solutions offers a Value Assessment Tool which provides FREE estimates of Internet domain values based on the following criteria:
WORD RELEVANCE
This factor rates the search frequency in Internet search engines of word(s) contained in the domain name.

DOMAIN NAME LENGTH
Shorter domain names, from 2-7 characters, get a higher ranking because shorter domain names are usually easier to remember. Domains names longer than 20 characters tend to be more difficult to remember and use.

LIVE WEB SITE
This factor considers whether a domain name is currently pointing to a Web site. Based on historical sales, e-commerce sites tend to command the highest market value.

DOMAIN EXTENSION
The domain name extension (for example .com or .net) is a large factor in determining the value of the domain name. Based on historical sales, domain names with the .com extension tend to command the highest market values, followed by those ending in .net, .biz, .info, .org, and .us.

TRAFFIC RANKING
This factor considers the domain name’s traffic rankings to determine how many visitors go to that domain name each month. A domain name that has a highly-visited Web site is ranked higher than a domain name which has never been used.

Cut and paste the following line and replace YourDomain.com with your domain name [omit the quotes]:

"https://www.certifiedofferservice.com/CertifiedOffer/
offer/makeoffer.do?dom=YourDOMAIN.com
"

The page that is returned has a pull menu and a question similar to the one shown in the following image:


To get the assessment for your domain select the "No or Don't Know" option from the pull menu.

NOTE: It makes a difference if you enter www.qisoftware.com versus qisoftware.com. Use qisoftware.com. Discussion of this tool can also be found on the NS&J Forums here --> Forum Domain Assessment Link.
