Just 24 days ago, warzone.com was ~ 350 000 dollars, but now we have jumped to almost $1 mill.

How do I know this? Well, I don't but this site https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/warzone.com/ gives some values :P

Just figured I would share.

Ah so that's why we saw the name change to Warzone.
Selling the address for millions of $ and change back to Warlight when?

Sites that value domains are usually scams. They publish an intentionally high number on purpose, since they want the domain owners to contact them to begin a negotiation where they'll try to manipulate / lowball you.

The site also said "estimated" traffic, and that they were assuming "affiliate programs". They probably didn't even subtract the cost of hosting a site/server capable of the traffic they estimated....

Probably, the evaluation is akin to a company evaluating itself on shark tank :) But the point of my post was more to show that warzone had grown. Oh and of course I made the title clickbait :D I was tired of reading CL threads for the next month. EDIT: And yes, as JK said, the disclaimers on the worthOfWeb is never-ending.

If you want a better metric, it's certainly better to look at search trends then any supposed dollar evaluation.

You input a url. Like this https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/warzone.com
{And yes, if you go to that page, and look at Engagement you can tell a different story. But I wanted a clickbait thread :P }

I checked warzone.com estimated value on worthofweb back in 2017. Already then it claimed warzone.com value was close to 1m, while other sites ranged it 50 000 $ to 100 000 $.

Worthofweb is one of most off or lying calculators. Easy to find websites where it overestimates their traffic and value by multiple of 10.

Since the 1M is overestimated, what is the real value of WZ rn?

Im kinda assuming @Fizzer isnt going to tell us, but if some smart people could do some educated guesses that would be great

I'd calculate it like this:

There are a couple of variables here:
a) Amount that WarZone earns
b) Working hours that you need to invest in order to keep WarZone running.
c) Your expected return
d) Salary which someone with the skill in order to keep WarZone running could achieve with a freelance job.


Now let's make two calculations:
a) 100.000$
b) 0 (WarZone runs itself)
c) 10%
d) 0 (WarZone runs itself)
--> WarZone is worth 1 million dollars

I have no clue how the 100.000$ are stretched and Fizzer most likely won't tell. As for WarZone running itself we know this isn't true, I just wanted to show how not to make the calculation.

Now with a calculation factoring in that the site doesn't run itself:
a) 100.000$
b) Full time job
c) 10%
d) 70$ per hour --> 8 hours per day and let's say 200 days of work per year --> 112.000$

With that calculation WarZone is worth nothing. The meaning of that is that people with the required skills in order to run WarZone won't pay anything for the site since they will earn less running WarZone than when doing their previous job. "Why would I pay 1 million dollars in order to earn 100.000$ per year when I could do so on my own without that initial investment?"

A person with the skills to run warzone probably wouldn't be able to easily find a freelance gig paying 112K, unless they had other skills.

@VERNAL VINAIGRETTE: That was a very conservative assumption. As a basis for my calculation I thought about what you earn as a Java freelancer in Germany. Here the salary usually starts at 70€ per hour. The average is about 80€ per hour (https://www.freelancermap.de/?module=freelancer&func=suchergebnisse&expert_search=0&qall=java&profisuche=0&q_id_plattform=1&id_plattform=1&redirect=1).

From what I have heard in the States the salaries are higher than in Germany however there it depends more on where you live. 70€ translates to 76 dollars.

WarLight includes various technologies I know about (C#, Flash, various frontend technologies, Unity) and probably some more. Apart from Flash those technologies are high in demand. If hired as a pure developer the builder of WarLight should aim for about 100$ per hour (according to German standards). If he finds a company which hires him as an architect the upper end of his salary should be completely open (especially in the States, not so much in Germany).

However those numbers were just to show that the WarLight website site has most likely no value at all if you indeed need a full time developer in order to run it. If WarLight is mature enough that you can run the site with some coding at weekend, then we might be starting to talk business.
