Ratings: evaluate value and risk of a domain name

We will also rate the domain according to a 20 point rating system, the rating reflects the stabilty of the domains value, the higher the rating the more likely the domain will keep or even gain in value, the lower the rating, the more likely the domain will loose value in the future, the rating does not indicate if the domain has a higher or lower value but its a great indicator to determine if particular domain is a safe investment or not.

The 20 points rating system is not based on our evaluation but follows a checklist of 20 criterias such as etymological criterias, misstypes, existing IDNs, type of described item or entity, lenght, signs used,date of registration etc. the rating will not change over the years and always stay the same. The ratings are similiar to those used to rate Bonds on financial markets
