OK, I'm doing this just for fun and as an attempt at a conversation starter. I just received an inquiry on this one and I normally just say its not for sale.

So what do you think? Water is arguably the world's most important resource. Where would you price this domain for an end-user sale?

Obviously many end users for this one. Perrier, Fiji, and Dasani (Coco-cola) comes to mind.

Low to mid xxx,xxx.

I don't know - the online world's not built like that anymore and I still think it comes down to a company that somehow uses "water" in its name, either as a brand or a secondary term.

It would be a great brand for a Canadian non-profit or charity related to water usage, supply and/or cleanliness, but they're notoriously cheap, even though they pay their executives private corp CEO-level salaries.

The .org is the Matt Damon/Gary White initiative for getting people clean water and sanitization.

The guy who contacted me yesterday wants if for charity purposes, says he wants to give back by helping Indigenous/First Nations get access to clean water. It's hard not to be skeptical about motivations, what's in it for him? I can only assume its the corporate CEO-level salary, which he says is his background.

I said it would take a 6-figure offer just to open negotiations, and his response was:

That domain would be ideal... but I know the economics of securing it.

I suppose that's more encouraging than a $50 offer.

water, air, two things that are priceless.

I just looked up water.com and see what they're doing.

Such a huge commodity that everyone needs, also could be a name of a totally unrelated product or service. Such an easy word to remember and spell.

After just a couple minutes thinking, I'd have a hard time selling for under $500k if you aren't a motivated seller.

helping out the First Nations water situation is a noble cause, but they don't need a domain like this to do that. Something like FNwater.ca would be fine or a number of other hand regs anyone could think of.

I'm not sure I agree. Using Water says this is a Canadian problem. Using FNwater says its a First Nations problem. If they expect to raise money, they need to portray this as a Canadian problem otherwise they're not going to get very far.

Now I think that there are fundamental problems between First Nations and Canada and that the current water problem is probably a direct function of that dysfunction. But that is a much bigger/deeper discussion.

Fair point, I'm kind of assuming that they wouldn't pay near the top price for a domain like this, so should probably just register something that's available and describes what they are doing.

That's the downside of self-government where there are few, if any, checks and balances on how those billions of tax payer dollars are spent.

To do what they need to do, they're gonna need hundreds of millions of dollars. I've read that the average registered Canadian charity CEO salary is 6-figures. Add staff to do actual work, directors, board members, marketing, web development, etc... So I think any serious charity can afford to pay me too. Of course i doubt they actually will, but it is possible.

Wouldn’t this be something the government would handle, not a charity? I don’t think people would donate to a charity for this when it’s the government and tax dollars that should be fixing it.

You'd think so. I don't know the politics of it, but apparently its not getting done.

Paying for it and getting it done are two totally different things under First Nations self government.
