High Profile Domains

What decides high-profile status for a domain name? What determines a high profile domain name? What makes a domain name a high profile domain?

Answer: What the seller is willing to sell a domain name for and what the buyer is willing to pay for a domain name are the biggest determining factors. If a domain name is one recognizable word, or a recognizable / popular word phrase it may also be considered or given a “High Profile” status.
