Biltmore.US is now operational and serving a narrow niche in the luxury web address market. Most of the domain names featured there are one word generic domains or geo domains such as Manhattan.mobi.
The site will publish its own short blog pieces related to premium domains for sale, and will incorporate the blog feed from this site, PremiumDomains.biz.
Biltmore.US was designed with DevHub, and uses a somewhat larger default font size which is very easy to read. High profile domains have their own dedicated promo & information page.
In regard to the mobile internet market, the general consensus is that mobile web is and will remain very popular. It seems unlikely that handheld devices will offer a more satisfying experience than a desktop or laptop computer. The display screen is just not large enough.
However, geo domains in the mobile web market seem to have a special appeal given the locality-specific nature of mobile web computing. When .MOBI was released, Menius Enterprises (in partnership with another company) acquired several major destinations in the dotmobi web address.
These mobile sites underwent some light development at that time, but are in need presently of a significant upgrade. In addition to Manahattan.mobi, these premium mobile domain names include the likes of Tampa.mobi, Cincinnati.mobi, and ParisFrance.mobi.
Buy Domains, premium domains
There is an ongoing joke in the domain industry circle about the overuse of the phrase “premium domains”. You see the word premium used in the domain forums, blogs, and online domain name brokerage houses.
In fact, a few of the brokerages advertise that they have 1.5 million premium domain names available. Quite funny! There aren’t enough premium domains in existence to come close to qualifying that statement.
The issue is that the universe of domain names is very large, and the vast majority of these available names are mediocre at best. Labeling a domain as “premium”, when it has only modest appeal, misleads potential buyers. Domain name forums are probably the venue most guilty of the “premium domain” overuse syndrome.
Premium real estate, premium anything … means that the item in question is of arguably higher quality than other items within the same general class or category. And that the item has no easy substitute or replacement.
Another popular term to describe the same upper echelon of quality is “luxury” as in luxury yachts. It is commonly understood that when you say “luxury yacht”, you are not referring to a pontoon or bass fishing boat, but are making reference to a comparatively expensive & elaborate vessel, rare, and outstanding in design or craftsmanship.
In closing, “premium” can probably be equated with “excellent” on the traditional poor-fair-good-excellent rating scale. Every domain can be fit into this scale. Just remember, a small percentage of domain names are excellent or premium, considerably more can be described as good, and the majority of the rest either fair or poor. Happy domain hunting.
