Premium Domains

I receive a fair amount of weekly emails from people across the world attempting to sell me on their greatest gem of a domain and how it’ll change my life forever.

Not too often, one of these emails will be legit. Most recently, the email offers have been hyphenated, multi-word, wrong tense, wrong order if any order domains.

Case in point, the following emails just today and yesterday:

  • Furniturez.biz
  • Downloadz-empire.net
  • Downloader-manger.org
  • SafeCab.net
  • Villerealestate.com
  • TheTermInsurance.com
  • ACarRepair.com

Most of these reach the spam bin if not already in there to begin with. But then there are a few legitimate domain sales emails that catch my eye.

The one I’m referencing today that caught my did for a number of reasons. Continue reading

domain-negotiating-powerIt’s quite popular, but posting domains with prices on Twitter might not be the smartest move for domain investors.

If you’ve been keeping up and watching the flurry of activity around @DomainKing’s Twitter posts, then you’ve likely been seeing a trove of domain listings.

It’s been entertaining to watch and learn at the expense of others. There’s nothing like learning from someone else’s downfall as well as their upside. Continue reading

You just received and negotiated a domain inquiry like a pro.

You’re giddy about your newly finalized agreement. The buyer is ready to pay for the domain, and you’re ready to accept payment quicker than quick.

Everyone is on the the same page. Now how do you go about receiving the buyers payment and transferring the domain name?

There are many payment options to accept a buyers payment.

Whether buying, selling, or leasing, you’re likely tempted to handle transactions with PayPal. Continue reading

I often field emails and phone calls from persons wanting to break into the vast world of domain investing.

Some think it’s a business where they’ll be the ones to purchase a domain on Monday for pennies on the dollar and then flip it for thousands or millions by Friday.

I call this person the simpleton domain loser. Yes, I was once this person.

Without adequate understanding and comprehension of the various domain niches, they think it is just as simple as hand registering domains or bidding up expired domain auctions.

If you want to lose money quickly, then domain investing is one of many ways to lose your job, shirt, house and car.

Domain investing is a precise game of patience and thorough understanding of supply and demand economics.

So, where did I go wrong? Continue reading

Over the last few weeks, Rick Schwartz has fallen beyond head over heels in love with Twitter. While his blog has long been silent without new posts, there is no commentary shortage via his @DomainKing Twitter account.

Of course, I follow Rick’s antics, thoughts, spats and other rare dispositions as they relate to business and domaining. The following tweet captured my attention and spawned this very post.

As I delve into the commentary of replies and rebuttals from Rick’s statement, I came across an intriguing back-and-forth between Rick and Elliot Silver (@DInvesting / DomainInvesting.com).

Elliot’s question got me thinking about what it would be like to have no domain investing experience and start from ground zero today.

After all, all the good domains are taken, right? I mean, is it really possible to purchase domains at hand-registration or up to $2,500, and sell the domains for $100K+?

The short answers are “No” and “Yes” respectively. It is very possible to purchase domains at hand-registration or up to $2,500 TODAY, and sell the domains for $100K+ DECADES later.  But how?  Well, that’s what we’re here to debate. Continue reading

About 5-6 years ago, I agreed to work with a gentleman here in Austin to develop a website. For my time in developing the website and since he owned the domain, we agreed to split the advertising revenue.

At the end of our 2-year agreement, the same gentleman had a fallen out with mutual business partners about another website we operated. It was a pretty bad fallen out too, involving legal and lawsuits.

Allegedly, this gentleman had possession of a domain that was personally not his. He forced the company to purchase another domain name because he held the old name ransom.

Well, some time passed and cooler heads prevailed. The old domain was transferred to the company after some tough negotiations.

Not too long after this, I approached the gentleman with an offer about buying the domain that I had developed a website for years prior.

The domain was no longer being used, so I thought I had a decent shot at getting the domain at a reasonable price. Continue reading

There are investing lessons to be had with no shortage in the number to go around.

This statement can be broadly and precisely applied when speaking in terms of domain investing with credit cards.

For those of us with our eyes on the domaining prize of fame, fortune, and success in short order, one can’t help but ask the question:

Can I profit windfalls of cash via credit card domain investing?

A simple question to ask at surface level, yet quite often multifaceted in how one chooses to answer and respond based on life experience. Continue reading
