    Logo is just horrible. Apart from that it's a base Open Cart that I wouldn't touch due to the attitude of the developer.

    I hope it all works out though.

    I think your chances of selling a TV are zero.

    • The logo is terrible
    • There is no company name (who am I buying from?)
    • The about page is blank
    • The delivery info page is blank
    • The extension doesn't give me confidence
    There is nothing about the site that would give me the slightest bit of confidence in handing over my credit card details.

    I hate to sound so negative, but I really think it would be delusional to believe that someone will buy a big ticket item from this website.

    Sorry...

    Its not supposed to have any of that as I am not running the site

    its a work in progress I as just asking about the look all the details would be filled in later so the logo sucks yeah I wasn't to fond of the logo either then again I am no designer and I have sold ecommerce electronics products on a worse looking site using opencart many of them with a totally unrelated domain even a .info lol

    However

    hdvt.com.au is valued at $17000 by valuate also powered by estibot

    this is the only tool that domainers use as a close estimate

    I valued the domain hdtv.net.au at 50% of the .com.au $8500

    This also takes into account the phrase local at 74000

    I could of had a parked domain or thrown together a website I chose the later

    it will soon have a 1300 number and a office address

    Then I'll decide whether to run it or flip it as I don't have enough time at the moment really to run an eCommerce site

    I would however be interested in a partner that thinks they could run the site successfully.

    Buy a better name on netfleet. There is some awesome TV names there you could use. :)

    It gives a value of $5 for the name if you type it into estibot http://www.estibot.com/appraise.php ( Which is nearly useless sometimes at evaluations anyway most times)

    Valuate/Estibot valuations are a JOKE even for gTLDs' let alone Aussie names
    google.com $1500
    sedo.com $10K
    dnTRADE.com.au $120
    and not forgetting my favourite
    abc.net.au $55


    And your site will do well.
    Good Name

    If you honestly believe the above three lines you've written, you need to seriously reassess you approach to domaining, otherwise you're just going to waste a lot of time and money.

    been doing this for awhile I use phrase and exact local match

    which are 74000 for phrase exact match 590 Local

    and 4,090,000 Phrase match Global Exact match 110,000

    valuate is only part of the metric I use and it values the actual domain at $40

    however valuate are not to good at valuating .au names neither is estibot
    _________________________________________________________________
    .net.au is the 2nd TLD for .au with only .com.au sitting above it valuates estimate is probably pretty close

    Domain Details:
    Domain: hdtv.com.au
    SLD: hdtv
    Keywords:
    hdtv
    [ change ]
    Language:
    Polish - 93%


    Category: Other -- Generic 4-letter

    Appraisal Overview:
    EstiBot Value: $ 17,000 USD
    ______________________________________________________________

    Taking all above metrics into account I have divided the estibot value by 2 and I am not the only .au domainer who does this there is quite a few for .net.au if this was at .com it would be valued and sell for xxx,xxx

    its a four letter Generic name that has many brand opportunities and can be used for any sub domain niche or keyword such as buy.hdtv,3d.hdtv,full.hdtv,watch.hdtv etc etc, all extensions are taken.

    Do you have an example of a similar site putting this to good use?

    I see so many say that's a good way to use generics but I never see it done.

    christmas.hospitalityline.co.uk <----- This site is putting the method to use

    also your earlier question it cost around $120-$250 to setup the 1300 Number and business address depending who you use and what state city you want the address in.
