What could you do with Poor.com?

What could you do with Poor.com? A press release via PRWeb is letting the world know the domain name Poor.com is currently for sale via the broker SuperNiche.com, The broker is hoping to get $135,000 for the domain Poor.com but is open to private offers for the domain, the site doesn’t resolve and doing a whois via DomainTools.com show it is registered under GoDaddy.com Domain Privacy, Domains By Proxy LLC.

What I want to know is if you were to purchase the domain Poor.com, what would you or could you actually do with it?

It will get a small amount of type in traffic I am sure, Alexa ranking is only 11,934,810 and shows 19 back links but it is a 1995 registration and a nice LLLL.com domain but is it worth $135K?

It would be best used in my eyes through a charity to promote poverty but is a charity going to drop six figures on a domain when they could use that money for food aid or clothes aid etc?

It would appear looking at archive.org wayback machine the domain used to be used by a Jon Poor to promote his company PoorDesign.com but that is going back 2003, It appears to have been dormant since then.

So what are your thoughts?

The Full Press release is below.

uperNiche.com, a premium domain broker, presents a rare four letter dictionary domain name, Poor.com. The domain is available exclusively through Super Niche for $135,000 or private offers.

With an estimated 925 million people unable to obtain basic human needs such as food and water, proper sanitation, clothing and shelter, healthcare and even education; the world has a long way to go in solving issues with ending extreme poverty. Poor.com is a very appropriate and descriptive domain name that would make a great informational website or platform for any organization that is trying to make a difference. It is also easy to remember and tells exactly what your website is about. This makes Poor.com one of those unique and rare domains that can communicate its purpose quickly and deliver a lasting message before a single word is even read on the destination website.

The price of this domain is worth considering as well. Four letter dictionary word domains are traditionally very expensive. The second largest pure domain sale ever reported publicly is Fund.com at a staggering fifty dollars shy of $10,000,000. While that is impressive, most four letter dictionary domains sell for between $100,000 – $600,000. You can see many notable examples at dnsaleprice.com, a popular site for researching historical domain sales data.

  1. Hi Robbie, nice article. As the domain broker on this domain I thought I’d just comment on why charities need good domains too. As a necessary evil of what they do, they have to advertise and they have to market . This is why you see so many TV ads etc. They pretty much exist to raise money so that they can help with the things that they are passionate about. A good domain name can go a long way for a charity by accentuating what they do. All you have to do to see this in action is to think about passing that billboard on the street or catching that piece of an advertisement on TV , and ask yourself what is easier to remember in such short a span of time? Domain names like americansavethepeoplefoundation.com ,northamericansavethefoodfoundation.org or something like food.com or poor.com? I think their need for a great brand is at least in some small part the same reasons behind a Johnson & Johnson developing baby.com.

  2. Biz-op type, rags to riches stories and upsells. No need to think too much about potential, just look back at what some other guy made with a name such as “Rich Dad Poor Dad”.

  3. PoorDesign… i love it. wonder why he went out of business?
