    How exactly is a premium domain different from a normal domain

    I see many domains with pretty silly names and are priced for thousands of dollars and at the same time good names that are available at the standard price. Who exactly determines if a domain is premium or ordinary?

    I see a lot of domain sellers that falsely declare their domains as premium in order to extract a higher price.

    From my perspective, a domain is a premium domain if a buyer is willing to pay a high price for it. It is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it and not what anyone says it is worth.

  4. ICANN has nothing to do with determining if a domain name is "premium" or not. It's all who is selling the domain, which usually is the registrar.

    If I want to buy a domain from a registrar for example, and this has a high value, because it's premium domain, may I found it at other registrar at normal price?

    So called 'premium' domains are already owned, either by an individual, company or registrar for example. That also implies that you cannot find (buy) it somewhere else although the domain may be marketed at different platforms across the net.

    When talking about unregistered names, these can be registered anywhere. There will be some price differences between different registrars. However, you will usually (if not never) not find 'premium' unregistered names there.
