    Default One of the best domain names ever for sale: casino.live

    I was very lucky to catch this domain name. I think it is one of the best domain names not only in casino industry, but overall.

    Clearly, this domain name may bring any casino operator to a new level.
    It has an unlimited SEO potential, and what is also important - such a domain name will build trust and high conversions.

    Live casino segment is becoming more and more important every year, so a smart casino guy who grabs this domain name from me will make a fortune.

    I wanted to keep this domain name for a while, before selling for a maximum price, but have some life circumstances and I need money in coming months. The domain name is for sale at SEDO marketplace. Waiting for your offers.

    P.S. For those who are reading this post - could you please let to know some experienced casino people about this opportunity?
    By the way, if you wish to earn on this sale too, just bring me the client for Escrow.com secure sale and I will pay you 12% for your service (contact me at betsec(@)hotmail(dot)com).

    Good luck with the sale, but I personally do not agree that the name is the best ever, and in fact I really have my doubts that it will bring the kind of sale revenue you are hoping for.

    I agree that the live segment has seen huge increases and because of that you may find an operator willing to pick it up.

    Miserable grinches!


    It's a good domain name that should achieve a reasonable payday - although I do wonder about brand-ability.
    EG. the best casino is NOT called casino, the best newspaper is not called newspaper etc.

    And when a check on sex.live, news.live, money.live, sports.live found no results ...
    While score.live was just a holding page ...

    So perhaps you guys are right ... maybe this ending is just not in the mindset?
    Still I'd expect a four figure payout at least.

    You are correct and I thought about my post after the fact.

    It could be that since not a lot of people have not used them much that the extension could in fact be a draw, I guess I wanted to say it in a similar fashion as you but my post was a little too on the negative side.

    Betsec, have you talked to the domain marketers at sedo to see whether they would consider a big auction with your name being a feature?

    It very well could draw both you (and sedo) a bit more $$ if it was hyped (oops I mean promoted) better.

    it could be useful for a casino games operator. There he can list online games to play. Is that domain still available?

    I think it's a decent domain, not the best ever, but certainly decent. casino.live is quite memorable.

    ''over elaborate'' are the words you are looking for ? I guess some people like to juice it up, but it's a matter of perspective!

    Hi guys, thanks for your feedback.

    universal4, I have not talked with SEDO brokerage team yet, I will do it in coming days.
    I have no doubts about a huge value of this domain name and I have no doubts I will have an easy sale with it.
    As soon as some prominent casino people notice this domain name is for sale (I mean operators mostly), I will have enough offers to choose from.
    TheGooner, ".live" is one of the newest GTLD, and you will not find any websites on domain names like sports.live etc in coming months, because most of these domain names are reserved by the Name.com and will not be sold in coming months, and even when they are sold they are sold for five figures mostly.

    I am very well aware about SEO value of this domain name. Just two arguments to make it clear. With "casino.live" domain name you can give an unlimited number of "casino" and "casino live" anchor backlinks with no penalties from Google at all (as the domain name itself represent these keywords). Plus, when a user is looking for a live casino games and analyse Google search page results, he will click on "Casino.Live" page more probably than on other websites (and such a high CTR % will build you a huge Google trust). I think that there are only two domain names which are as engaging as "casino.live" and these are "casino.com" and "casino.online".
    And again, conversion. If you are a new casino user looking for a live casino, will you probably make a deposit on let's say "GreenDayLiveCasino.com" or "Casino.Live" website?!
    Sorry, but I think those who do not agree are just not very well prepared to discuss this topic professionally at the moment.

    Yes, it is available. I will collect all serious offers first, not in a hurry to sell. Because of a number of reasons this domain name is becoming more expensive every week.

    It's a good domain, but probably a bit early to sell looking at current sales.

    Good luck with it.

    I'm not sure exactly what the future of websites will be with mobile traffic becoming dominant - but I'm damn sure a keyword domain name will not be a major factor in the success or failure of a live casino business in 3-5 years.

    More and more expensive? Or sadly obsolete and out-of-date.
    Either could be true.

    Default for mobile traffic a great domain can be a perfect brand like lasvegas.casino

    or for example online.casino

    These would be amazing as a brand name.

    Would you click on lasvegas.casino or on mikescasinoinvegas.com?
    Would you click on online.casino or on mikesonlinecasino.com?

    The answer is clear..

    In addition, which would you remember for later use? Which is better for social media? The answer is very clear.

    I am not such a fan of "casino.live" as it should probably be more like "live.casino".. but to say that domains dont have value is ignoring the tremendous value they can have as a brand name! especially in mobile,socialmedia etc..

    I disagree completely top results using your theory proves you are wrong, You are sold on the EMD, branding has nothing to do with the word you use but making yourself known. anyone here that pulls larges amounts of traffic will agree with me. My $8.99 domain is more profitable than some 50,000k domain names but where do the people click? that's right me! or my competition which some have some pretty obscure domain names also. actually your scenario is very similar to the gooners actual site Im sure he and his millions of visitors would disagree with you on this one.

    This is not a best name I ever heard, ofcourse. Think I saw this domain name for 9,99$ like a month ago on godaddy.

    Sure, that;s why every single player plays at Casino.com and nobody clicks at MrGreen.com, BetSafe.com, Ladbrokes.com, 888.com, etc...

    I agree with most of you, it will not be worth so much. The new tld's are easy to buy now. I don't think you can sell them for much money.

    If you start a new website of course it is better to have something like casino.live, something easy to remember and brand. But I don't think it is worth it to change your domainname to one of the new gtlds.

    This thread raises an interesting topic about branding. Now that virtually any extension is available you could end up with casino.live, live.casino, casinos.live, live.casinos, livecasino.com, livecasino.net, onlinecasino.live and many more derivatives, thus muddying the market. The SEO value of any of them is negligible going forward as the saturation means that the owner of the domain and what they do with it is most likely to be the deciding factor in how it performs.

    This whole "any extension" business is a great cash-cow for the owners but for businesses it is a potential branding and marketing nightmare. No-one will know if the domain names hold any value themselves for years. Might be that his domain will be a goldmine - or it might just become another name. But that's why domainers speculate and some are very successful. It's all about second-guessing what brand a business may want. At the end of the day *any* domain is only worth what someone will pay for it.

    My personal thought is that it will have the effect (short-term - a few years - at least) of making .com versions more valuable until the waters become clearer.
