Why I bought semilegal.com
I originally bought semilegal.com for a project that I've been planning for quite awhile. Whenever I buy a domain name, I evaluate the how well the domain name meets my criteria. In the case of semilegal.com, I looked at the following criteria:
When I evaluated the domain name semilegal.com, I found that it easily met all of the criteria that I had in mind. While I do have a couple of ideas of how I would like to market the semilegal.com website, I haven't had the time to put all of the pieces into place.
- Does the domain name quickly explain the purpose of the website? If it does, it makes the website design and branding portion of the project a lot easier. Search engines will be able to find the website content a lot easier and with an easy to remember domain name, everything else falls into place.
- Is the .com domain name available? The domain name that I choose for the project must be available as a .com name. If it is not, I either purchase the name from the current owner or come up with an alternative name that will work comparably well. In some cases I will buy the .net or the .org domain name, too, but only if the .com was also available.
- Do I have a project or a customer in mind when I buy the domain name? The right domain name makes it easy to build a business around the domain name. Since the domain name is usually the focal point of any online business, choosing the correct domain name is sometimes the most important step in the online marketing of a website.

How much is semilegal.com worth?
The value of any domain name is subjective and sometimes hard to quantify. While the domain name semilegal.com might be worth just a few hundred dollars to one person, it might be worth thousands of dollars to a person who has a specific project in mind. Even if you spent $5,000 to buy a domain name, the investment in a well chosen domain name, with the right concept, could return your original investment many times over. Plus, while many of your marketing expenses will be ongoing, the purchase of the domain name was, for the most part, a one-time expense.
If you'd like to make an offer
While many domain names have sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars - even millions of dollars, I am also a very realistic and reasonable person. While it would be nice to receive a huge amount of money for semilegal.com, I'm willing to entertain any price that ends up being fair to both you and I. There is a lot of satisfaction for me in watching a domain name that I previously owned be put to a good use. If you are serious and ready like to make an offer on semilegal.com, click here.
