1-800-Get-Rich Can Toll Free 800 Number Domains Pay Off?

An interesting aspect to toll free numbers as domain names is that of 1-800 copyright and trademarks. Take for example,repparttar well known flower retailer 1-800-FLOWERS.com where they use bothrepparttar 108248 domain name andrepparttar 108249 toll free number. Both are copy- righted and trademarked names and essential torepparttar 108250 business.

Legal precedent allows trademark owners to confiscate domains from "cybersquatters" who buy domain names containing trade- marked or copyrighted words and phrases hoping to sell that domain back torepparttar 108251 trademark holder. But it is less clear an issue when it comes to descriptive toll free and vanity phone numbers. How about 1-800-PINDROP.com - which you would think would be registered to Sprint Communications? Curiously, as of October of 2004, this domain was available. What do they use? www.pindrop.com (withoutrepparttar 108252 800) goes to Sprint.com.

It appears there are wide inconsistencies in using toll free 800 phone numbers as domain names but they can be memorable, which is one measure of a good domain name. They also aren't limiting as to word length. I've always felt it's a bit odd to type in 1800keywordphrase.com as a domain name, but only because there is no hyphen in it. 1800 looks like eighteen hundred and is just as strange as typing 247 for domains as a suggestion they are always open, more often seen as 24/7, but domain names can't have that slash mark in them.

As a matter of fact, I've always disliked numbers of any kind in domain names - especially those using numbers in place ofrepparttar 108253 words "to" (up2me.com)& "for" (good4you.com) But, as owner of http://website101.com I'm at odds withrepparttar 108254 dislike for numbers in domain names. Still, it works better than 1800website.com or 1-800-website.com, both owned by Verio Web Hosting and both purchased in August of 1996, but neither have web sites configured at those addresses. They must not have been a worthwhile domains, yet they keep them.

If it offers you another option for a memorable web address, 800 number domains may be worth considering.
