January 6, 2018

By Dmytro Spilka

Domain appraisals can tell you everything you need to know about the value of your website and, significantly, other domains too.

It’s an essential practice to value up a domain you are selling or buying to get a true reading of its price and potential, which is probably why there are so many sites out there offering their own brand of appraisal service for your perusal.

Here, we’ve decided to handpick the best ten domain appraisal tools online. So when it comes to cashing in on your website or finding a new URL, you won’t be left in the dark.

1. GoDaddy

GoDaddy Domain Name Appraisal Tool

We start with a name that’s hard to get away from when it comes to anything related to domains. The GoDaddy brand has become so big that it’s hard to ignore their entry into the world of domain appraisals.

GoDaddy’s Domain Appraisal service not only provides an estimate on your a website’s price but explains its reasoning. The site takes into account variables like whether or not a domain uses popular keywords, how long the domain name is, and how much similarly named websites have recently sold for.

Furthermore, GoDaddy provides users with a list of available domain names that are yet to be purchased, just in case you’re looking for a cheap alternative or spot some potential web real estate.

2. Estibot

Estibot Domain Name Value Estimator

Estibot’s name hints at the tool’s purpose – it’s an estimation service that works by considering a range of variables that goes into a domain valuation, but primarily focuses on factors like cost-per-click, keyword optimisation, and the website’s previous sale price.

The great thing about Estibot is the range of statistics it offers as a background to any given domain and can be a good tool for spotting a cheap website’s potential with useful metrics like ‘traffic rank.’ While this appraisal tool is free, to perform multiple searches in a day, users are required to register with the site.
