Make Money with Domains!

Written on December 3, 2007 – 3:06 am | by admin |

Some of you may have heard of the word domaining. A domainer is one who buys and sells domains eg. www.ebloggy.com, ebloggy.com is a domain name. Some people call domainers cyber-squatters cos all you gotta do is just sit on the domain, have it on a parked page and wait till an end-user comes and buy it off you for offers as high as how much the buyer is willing to fork out. ;)

I started out 6 months ago as a domainer in online business after my friend introduced buying and selling domains to me. When I first heard of it I never knew people could actually make money just by buying these names for $8usd a year and re-sell them for as high as $300 MILLION such as business.com recently!

Heh gotcha! Gone were the days when such premium 1 word .coms were completely bought out and cannot be hand-registered anymore. The only way to buy these names is to contact the owner of the domain. To find info and email of the owner, you can easily find it by using domaintools.com.

So I started off with buying 3 names mainly rlyy.com greatbargains.org and weblistings.org. I offered these 3 names to buydomains a domain portfolio company and they offered $20 for rlyy, $55 for greatbargains and $60 for weblistings.org

Wow!! I din know I could make money that easily and so I sold off weblistings.org to them for $60 but it came to a regret as people whom I got to know from namepros.com (a domainers forum) later told me I could easily set up a web directory on weblistings.org and sell it off for more than $500. Oh well what a bummer I didn’t know web directories existed at that time =/

Anyway forget about selling your domains to buydomains.com, they are known to rip people off by buying domains for cheap from nubs and selling them off for a few hundred to few thousand to end-user buyers.

Coming back to how I started, for the past 5 months I have acquired more than 100 domains. If you are excited to hear how much I have made from them, come back again tomorrow!

    Flip, 100 domains is a lot. *subscribed*

    Do you still think buy/selling domains is a good idea, or are there better ways?
