Unmanned Domain Names

According to Wikipedia “Unmanned” usually refers to uncrewed vehicles (remote controlled, remote guided or autonomous) such as: Unmanned aircraft system (UAS), synonymous with UAV. Unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), such as the autonomous car. Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), unmanned aircraft commonly known as a “drone”.

Drone is a popular drone category. And, last month it was among the top 10 trending kewywords in terms of registration of .com domains according to Verisign. Names related to Drones are not easy to find.

Unmanned is a much broader term and it encompasses various UAVs and UGVs. The term is not popular in terms of domain registrations. But, it has a potential to grow in future. With more and more players entering the UAV’s market ‘the unmanned’ themed domain names might see an up tick in terms of registrations.

I own Unmanned.me and I thought of looking into some .com domains beginning with Unmanned. After a bit of research I zeroed on dot com names such as:

UnmannedMarket
UnmannedApp
UnmannedData
UnmannedNews
UnmannedBlog
UnmannedBox
UnmannedCity

Among the very few above, I got all except UnmannedMarket and UnmannedData. They were taken when I took a little time to rethink.

It seems lot of other domains are available with the unmanned keyword but with everyday news about unmanned vehicles and operations the number of good domains may go fast.

Some of the existing domains centered around unmanned keyword are:

UnmannedSystemsTechnology.com
EmpireUnmanned.com
AviationUnmanned.com
Unmanned.Life (a new gTLD)
UnmannedExperts.com
NordicUnmanned.ocm
CanadianUnmanned.com
UnmannedSpaceFlight.com
Unmanned-news.com
UnmannedSensing.com
Etc.

Should you invest in such names? The answer is not easy. I found some top keywords like app, news, blog and city associated with unmanned and were available for reg fee, so I registered them. At the same time, I noticed how fast unmannedmarket.com and unmanneddata.com were taken by others before I got them.

How Will You Pronounce ZMZM

Recently I came across a website zmzm.org. At first I read it as z m z m but after seeing its logo I understood how it’s pronounced.

Actually, zmzm stands for zamzam – the water one drinks during pilgrimage to Mecca.

From the domain point of view. In Arabic  zamzam letters are Z M Z M so if one want to write the same in English. One can skip the vowels and can write it as zmzm which is how exactly the domain in question is conceived.

I have came across several such advertisements/signboards where vowels were skipped and the original letters from the other language were transliterated as it is. For example the name Salman  and when transliterated it is as Slman. the roots are S, L M A N.

One thing to remember is that Arabic is the third most spoken language in the world and it makes sense to see the four letter and even other domains in that angle too. Apart from the Chinese Pinyin meanings.

When it comes to domains especially four letter which are not pronounceable because you see no vowels maybe are pronounceable when transliterated appropriately to an another language. It could be the CVCV when pronounced like the zmzm example.

Internet is still growing and there are lots of businesses around the world not yet online and as their presence increases online so that the demand for better names will. Now it is safe to say that the Domaining industry or business of domain names is not just limited to English speaking countries. We have seen how Chinese have changed the domain game and it’s possible that other countries may too follow the suit.

The VAIO Brand

VAIO stands for (Visual Audio Intelligent Organizer), which is headquartered in Azumino, Nagano Japan, is a manufacturer of personal computers. VAIO was originally a brand of Sony Corporation, introduced in 1996.

One interesting thing about this name is that it contains ‘v,a,i,o’. These are the letters in a 4  or a 5 letter domain name which domain investors especially from China avoid to invest in.

Vaio is an acronym but it appears pronounceable and its unframed logo looks quite good.

This was the only word containing letters from ‘aeiouv’ which I was able to find. If you take out ‘v’ from this then there are tons of English dictionary words such as favourite, cauliflower, etc.

Although the vaio brand is not that much popular internationally compare to other major brands but I found this article VAIO is coming back to the USA which writes about its return.

If you find any 4 letter brand containing aeiouv and which is a well established business then feel free to share.

You may visit US website VAIO or the main website VAIO

Matching XYZ Domain Usage by Registrars

Whatever be the opinion of domainers or businesses the new generic top level domain xyz ever since its launch was in news and limelight. Whether it’s free push to Netsol registrants accounts or a xyz domain for a penny, the domain community has witnessed it all. As of today as per the ntldstats.com website the total xyz domains are 6,455,327 and it seems it’s doing good and will stay.

I thought to make a little online search to see how different domain registrars are using .xyz domains and here is the result.

Godaddy.xyz : https://www.godaddy.com/tlds/xyz-domain “Finally! A domain for the .xyz generation”

NetworkSolutions.com: http://www.networksolutions.com/domain-name-registration/index.jsp?

Namecheap: https://www.namecheap.com/domains/registration/gtld/xyz.aspx

Uniregistry.xyz : https://uniregistry.com “Uniregistry is not forwarding the users to search and register a .xyz domain like the above three registrars.

NameBright.xyz : It’s available for registration. I think NameBright is not much concerned with its registration as they are not providing new gtld’s registrations.

NameSilo.xyz : Takes you to an Uniregistry lander page

Name.xyz: This name is not resolving

Alpnames.xyz: Takes you to Alpnames.xyz where you can enter a search for finding .xyz name

Enom.xyz: Its not resolving

Most of the registrars are using the .xyz domains as a protective registration.

L-L Domain Availability – Recent Sale of K-M dot com

If all LL dot com domains are worth million dollars then what will be the value of letter hyphen letter dot com names? Well, thanks to Uniregistry’s recent sales data – I was able to see one such sale. It’s k-m.com for $7,500 (DNJournal.com Mon. July 11, 2016 – Sun. July 17, 2016)

We generally regard hyphens not good but I think hyphen maybe good if included in short names such as two letters. Is there any value in them? I made a quick search to see if any such L-L domain available and found none under .com. It’s fair to say that they have some value. And, if you’re holding such a name then the above sale should be an indicator for your valuation of that particular name.

Well, If you want to run such a list under any other TLD then feel free to copy this list here:
