Yep, but... you might want to make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm this as I am not sure. Better yet, why don't you call the Godaddy guys because they can give you help better...
Id think my would be a good prefix too. examples mybusiness.com, mycredit.com, mysociety.com..
All sound really good...
It depends e stand for electronic so sometimes the name just look stupied, efood.com ^^.
Even if the HostGator is brandable...
I think "X" would be good too for things that are experimental or things yet to come. Just a thought....
I like both "e" and "i" names, own a few, recently picked up eUpskirts.com.
"e" has converted normal-mail into 'Snail-mail'. Surely, 'E' has replaced 'AT' with '@' in our addresses.... 'E' means to be in 'Cyber-Space' instead of being 'on the roads. It has given a complete new meaning to 'Financing' also. In addition to a couple of others, I own 'eFinancing.net' and I love it......
Yes, we are living in eWorld now. But including our body, everything in the Universe contains "e". So, I think 'Financing' was originally 'eFinancing'..
For the sake of interest of other domainers:.
Research is going on and one day 'e' shall really be integral part of our life... when 'Contact Lenses' are going to replace our bulky CRT/Monitors, when we shall be able to 'smell' the perfumes online b4 ordering, when we shall be able to 'touch' ANY object online ( yes..!!! imaginations go wild )..... just imagine the power of 'e' & 'v' ..!!!..
Lol, I am working on perfecting a Scratch 'n Sniff site... remember those stickers?.
Hey, this is a great thread... in line with my thinking when I was assembling my portfolio.
The prefix really has to fit with the word ... I and you work with verbs.
E works with most keywords where the product or service is online.
And of course all this only came about as the goldrush for HostGator names accelerated to the point where there were no more generic words/terms left with a.com extension.
So, in fact all of these types of names have been grabbed by a wide number of people making it next to impossible to use them as a method of navigation - if you were looking for chairs or cars or whatever you won't see sites that look the same and provide a consistent set of services - instead you will get 404s and a bunch of quite different looking sites.
There are a few small networks such as the canadian go pro network, those people have a hundred or so generic terms like plumbing all with the .ca extension and all in the building trade,so it actually can work within those confines but nobody has managed to go much futher.
Tooooooooo bad ... and so the masses are forced to remember all kinds of wierd urls and kneel to google etc ....
If anyone has seen a network with a common prefix or suffix , owned by the same person or company with the sites all looking similiar (portal network) i'd be fascinated to hear about it.
Now the big question ... if someone did own 1000 names with a common prefix that worked ... what would it be worth ?
Please see :.
All starting with 'e' and ending at '.co.za' on main page..
On individual websites, a great collection of 'co.za'.....
Regarding potential worth, may be well over 10 Million $......
Question: If you guys had a choice of the following for the same price, which would would you buy:.
EMoney.com or Money.net ?
I like eMoney.com much more.NET is ugly.
The Korean owner expected more than $5,000,000 a few years ago.
Ah, an American company tried to steal eMoney.com, but he protected it from them...
"e" is a very popular prefix in Asia, at least in Taiwan that sometimes people registered e"word".com.tw(or even "i" word) and let "word".com.tw be still available.
Please add eCasino.com and eCook.com to your list..
Like "e". Not particularly fond of "i" because of "e's" familiarity and dominance and unlike "v" or "x", which connote distinct meanings, "i", is used almost interchangeably w/ "e'. "e-", IMO, is = , or^= to "i"; both need more branding and marketing work than "e" alone. Am intrigued by "v"/virtual as a prospect for the longer term"ez" is another good one that also requires a bit more development/branding than "e'. Have a couple of "xxx", that I will not renew. Also like "x" for "extreme", as in "xsports", but am uncertain as to whether or not this will have legs as an abbrev/prefix...
So the consensus here is that "e" before any appropriate single word would beat out almost any other extension using just the single word... ie, eAppropriate.com vs. Appropriate.net, info, etc?..
The key is "before any APPROPRIATE single word"..
In most cases, I would have to agree (there are always exceptions though)..
This totally depends if the e infront makes teh word sound better..
Like motorcar.com with emotorcar not better in this instance where as , ebank.com is better than bank.com..
Asgard, the list you posted to start the thread really makes a strong case for the viability of "e" names..
In most cases of single words the "e" .com would be preferred over the .net, though not by much. In phrases with two words already, adding the "e" often just makes it more cumbersome. ePoolCleaner.com vs PoolCleaner.net..
I have to admit I'm not a big fan of e- domains, nor the i- and now x- domains that have been popping up here and elsewhere for sale. I think your list shows many names that wouldn't have worked without the e- in front (ie- eBay.com is more memorable than Bay.com for an auction GoDaddy site and eTrade.com works because it stresses online trading)..
Domains like eOriginal.com and ePeople.com don't seem to have the same draw as the exceptions, so I wouldn't recommend e- domains in most cases...
I agree with you on "e" domains' popularity in Asia..
But I can't add your great domains to the list because they are not funded companies by VCs.
Anthony, I really.
Well, I suppose -RJ- does not like your domain..
Just found this one in the list, e Samsung, Inc. -.
Looks like also a website of Samsung, why they bothers to add an "e" on their own brand? what is the strategy of Samsung?..
Just another piece of the web with their name in that they would rather have I imagine. Easily exploited by others using their brand to profit from something...
WOW, I've started this thread about 17 months ago and most of these "e"companies are still alive, did not change their names.
I didn't expect this at that time. Great..
E is a great letter stand for new ecomony like digital, internet etc! so letter e will continue to be very popular in the future!..
I have eShoppingreports and eWWII so yeah I'm a member of the e prefix club..
