I started at 6am on this chilly autumn morning, and after checking my admin over a bacon wrap and a coffee, I decided that I ought to hold off looking for new names to register. Finances are looking fairly strong, but I haven't made any sales for a few days, so I'll focus on a bit of development for a change. I decided to keep FoxFoo.com - my impulse buy yesterday. I need to be a bit careful with it as it sounds a bit like "Fox Poo", and the urban dictionary defines foo as a shortform of fool. I looked in Wikipedia and there is a much broader description here. I think I'll go with the computer meanings. It's use as a naming convention for minor names fits in with my idea of using "flip names" to drive traffic to a main site. The prefix "fox" makes them sound like a wise and clever choice, and, of course, they are, or I wouldn't have acquired them in the first place. I'll need to find a nice responsive template for the site, and thiswill allow potential buyers to scan the list in a pub or on the train.
8:30 update - I gave in and did a bit of treasure hunting. The expired list hasn't dropped to a dollar yet. so I went to the drop list. I was tempted by SurfName.com, but couldn't think of a way to monetise it, so I left that alone. I missed VRsurround.com, and considered VRflies.com, but I decided I wouldn't do the work to take advantage of that. OK- I've just registered a name. With all the current activity in Bitcoin,and the past and future blockchain forks, Iwas quite pleased to pick up Code Forks.com for reg fee. I'm collecting Bitcoin at the moment, and it seemed that there was a bit of potential to earn a few Satoshi by explaining the mechanics of the Blockchain forks.

Only a couple of likes on Name Pros, so it doesn’t look as if the pro domainers like the name. I usually get more likes than that for my name.
I’ll have a look at the free valuation sites and see what they think of it.

Czalculator web - This is a premium domain so the result may not be accurate. Please obtain a professional appraisal from a paid service.
Value my domain - $444
Valbot - $100
This is why I find it so hard to place a value on a domain name. I think Fox Foo is a nice catchy brand name, so I’ll probably keep this one for my own promotions.
