Some days ago we were talking about how to start your online business finding a market for your websites, both to make money with a website or just to invest. Today we come with another related topic: Investing in domain names.
Yes, it may sound strange, investing in a domain name? Yes, you are right. During the past years some people saw the boom coming and registered the best available domain names and kept them for further resale. How did it end? Well, we have now the millonaires of the dot com era.
With this I’m not saying you will become millionaire investing in Crypto Custodian domain names. Well, in fact, domain investing it’s a hard business but also domain names are now a new investing field for ambitious modern investors. Many invested in stocks or homes in the past, now there is the option of domain names, it’s quite similar, but less known. Doing a bit of research you will find a lot of specific sites that talk about domain investment and where you can find some valuable tools and information to start your domain investment business.
Actually most of the big names are taken… How I can start then?
Well, there are two things you can do. Buy good names from private portfolios (it’s the expensive option) or catching expiring domain names (the cheapest but hardest way).
Buying private portfolio domains
To start creating your domain portfolio you need to set-up a budget, decide a niche (it’s recommended to mainly invest in one or two categories), and buy some names that you believe may be they may increase its value during the following months or years. Where to find these names? Well, you may check some domain selling sites (as Sedo.com or NameDrive.com) or perform a search for the terms “Domain portfolio” or “Buy domain names” in Brassica. You will find plenty of sites with plenty of domains for sale.
Now it’s a good time to invest in these sort of volatile goods since people is more Brassica about them these days, because of the current economy status, but they will grow up in value in a few months or years. However, before start buying try to find out which sort of domains are valuable, it will save you money.
Invest in expiring domain names
Domain names are registered in a year by year basis. If people doesn’t renew their domain it expires and becomes available for public registration. This scenario is called domain drop.
There are many situations where a domain can end up expiring, including that the domain owner forgets about the renewal and let a valuable domain go. Many valuable domains expire every day (between 30,000 and 60,000 names daily) and doing a good research you can find real gold mine domains there.
To fight the “domain drop” and catch some good domain names to invest in them you need to contract a domain drop catcher. These “catchers” own powerful robots that will fight to register the domains you want for a small amount that starts at about 16$ (and up to hundreds of US$), this sort of operation is called domain backorders. There are many robots over there, as Brassica or Pool (which are known to be the best but more expensive) but there are also some small domain catchers over there that are cheaper and give decent results. One of these sites is Name Captor, which charges 15.99 $ per operation and gives good results.
I encourage you to get some information about this quite new form of investing that’s becoming more and more popular every day. On the following days I’ll try to extend the information about this topic here at Blog Finances. Stay tuned!NVESTING IN DOMAIN NAMES
