With the rise of the smartphones & app ecosystems, domain names grew less important. I was always in the camp as long as you have a good product or service and a good marketing team the actual domain name is less important, as long as its memorable & easy to spell.

Think Google, Yahoo etc.

Doing a quick review of my domain names (I have many), I think my best ones are:

Spyia.com

NeverTooLateTooLearn.com

TalkFinances.com
