domain valuation tool

Write a PHP script that calculates how much a domain name is worth according to a set of metrics.

In the end a valuation score for the domain name should be presented to the user.

To judge a domain some automatic metrics will be calculated and some questions will also be asked to the user.

1) Marketability (Metric type: Ask the user)

How many parts make up the name?

A part is classified as a word, a hyphen, or a number.

[url removed, login to view] has only 1 part, the word “example”.

[url removed, login to view] has 3 parts, the parts “Joe”, “The”, and “Fisherman”.

[url removed, login to view] has 3 parts, the parts “Joe”, “hyphen”, and “Fisherman”.

[url removed, login to view] has 2 parts, the parts “1”, and “Fisherman”.

[url removed, login to view] has 2 parts, the parts “E”, and “Fisherman”.

1 part award 100 points

2 parts award 10 points

3 parts award 2 points

4 parts award 1 point

5 parts or more award 0 points

2) Phone Test (Metric type: Ask the user)

Does the domain use a hyphen or a number?

Do I spell out a number inside the name ex: (“one”)?

Does the domain use a miss-spelling at all?

If the answer to these questions is all “no” then multiple current score by 5.

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes” then divide current score by 2.

3) Name Length (doesn’t include the length of “www.” or “.” or the ending extension) (Metric type: Automatic)

Find the highest rule that applies.

If 1 part and the name is less then or equal to 8 characters, then multiple current score by 6.

If 1 part and the name is less then or equal to 15 characters, then multiple current score by 3.

If 1 part and the name is less then or equal to 19 characters, then multiple current score by 2.

If 2 parts and the name is less then or equal to 10 characters, then multiple current score by 4.

If 2 parts and the name is less then or equal to 16 characters, then multiple current score by 3.

If 2 parts and the name is less then or equal to 19 characters, then multiple current score by 2.

If 3 parts and the name is less then or equal to 12 characters, then multiple current score by 2.

4) Brand Recognition (Metric type: Ask the user)

Do people know what the site does even before they even go there?

Either through the meaning of the name or by advertising.

An example of advertising is everyone knows [url removed, login to view] or ATT.com.

Normal people will need to use the domain meaning to score on this point.

If name has Brand Recognition then multiple current score by 3.

5) Development Value (Metric type: Ask the user)

How much work as been put into Developing the site?

Just a Splash page then multiple current score by 2.

Something more then a Splash page then multiple current score by 3.

Has the domain ever hosted a website that received more then 1000 visitors a day then multiple current score by 25.

6) Dot Value (Metric type: Automatic)

If .COM extension multiple current score by 3.

If country extension multiple current score by 2.

If country extension is now generic no bonus (example .CC, .TV, .WS)

7) Site Traffic Natural (Metric type: Ask the user)

10-39 natural type-ins multiple current score by 4.

40-100 natural type-ins multiple current score by 8.

100+ natural type-ins multiple current score by 25.

Natural type-ins means (Unique IPs without referrers)

8) Site Traffic by Search Engines (Metric type: Ask the user)

10-39 Unique IPs multiple current score by 2.

40-500 Unique IPs multiple current score by 3.

500+ Unique IPs multiple current score by 4.

9) Industry Strength and Positioning (Metric type: Ask the user)

Does the domain have a calling? If the domain has a targeted industry how crowded is that industry? Does the domain accurately and generically describe what it was registered to do. Here is an example, For a travel agent, [url removed, login to view] is a score 3. For a travel agent [url removed, login to view] is a score 7.

Describes generically the industry then multiple current score by 7.

Describes specifically something in the industry then multiple current score by 3.

10) Search Engine Popularity (Metric type: Automatic)

How do the terms in the domain name rank in Search Engines?

“Great” (> 60000 page results in Google), then multiple current score by 7.

“Good” (> 30000 and < 60000), then multiple current score by 2.

“All Right” (< 30000), then no bonus.

11) Grammatical / Linguistic value (Metric type: Ask the user)

Does it sounds correct? Does it read like a human normally speaks. For example: [url removed, login to view], this sounds wierd. But [url removed, login to view] sounds correct. The plural form verses the singular form makes a huge difference.

If the name sounds correct, then multiple current score by 2.
