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:
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:
Unmanned.Life (a new gTLD)
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.
