Domain name speculation has to be one of the very best ways to
make money on the Internet. It's easy,How To Make Money Selling Domain Names Articles fun, takes a very low
investment and has a huge profit potential. Businesses and
webmasters are always looking for high quality, marketable
domain names and will pay you big bucks if you have the name
they want. Many people are making a good living buying and
selling domain names. And you can too.

Below I will tell you everything you need to know, including
where to find good domain names that are still available for
registration (for as low as $14.) This used to be one of the
hardest and most frustrating parts of domain investing. In the
past to find good domain names you would have to search, one by
one, until one came up that was available. But now there are
research tools and compiled lists that do this for you! You can
also get lists of domains that have expired, due to non-
and have been put back into the available pool. More on this
below, but first lets discuss what makes a good domain name.


The suffix is the most important factor. .COM, .NET, and .ORG
are by far the most popular. Other alternative domains like
.TV, .FM, are becoming more and more popular because they are
wide open. For example where you couldn't get you can
still get (well maybe not anymore). For now, I would
with .COM because they will be the easiest to sell.

Would a webmaster or business want it? Ask yourself that
question and if you can't instantly say "Yes!" than don't buy
it. Also the more generic the domain name the better. And
remember it is illegal to register a business name or trademark
that you do not own. This is called "cyber-squatting" and tough
laws are now in place to protect against this.

The shorter the name the better. These are the most memorable
and easiest to market. At the time of writing this, there are
only about a thousand three character domain names left. To
out how to get a list of these and four-character domain names
see below.

What names are selling? Do some research on or (popular domain auctions) and see what names are
selling and for how much. Below are what some domains recently
auctioned for or have current bids at $92,800 $35,080 $6,060 $4,725 $14,510 $2,625 $1,890 $730 $765 $2,885 $15,000 $15,000 $198,895.00


There is a myth circulating cyberspace that all the good
are taken already. And although it is true that thousands of
domain names are registered everyday, there are still good
to found. The best way to find great domains is to subscribe to
expired domain lists. These are compiled lists of the thousands
of repossessed domain names that have been put back into the
domain pool every day. They are available again for anyone to
register and contain some really great names; recently
appeared in one and was snatched up by a lucky subscriber. As a
subscriber you will get first pick at registering these names.
