Making Money With Domain Names

August 4th, 2009 | Posted in Domain Names, Making Money Online, Moneymaking Ideas

There are many ways to make money online and one lucrative way is by buying and selling domain names. With just a cost of a $10 registration fee some have made thousands, even millions, on just one domain alone. If it were so easy then no one would need their day job and could be instantly living in the lap of luxury.

Before you start out on this moneymaking venture and pick  just any name, remember the most valuable domain names are already taken. When selecting a domain name you have to consider its potential value. The best way is to analyze what the domain could be used for if someone were to build a website on it, the targeted buyer for it and would you yourself  buy it for more than the registration fee let alone pay a considerable sum for it.

Start on a small scale. For example a $50 investment. You can either register a few new domains or find ones for sale  that look promising and priced low enough. Sometimes there are domain sellers that are clearing out their portfolio or are in dire need of money which you could bargain with to get them cheaper. If you can make even $20 or $30 on each domain sale, then you are well on your way to making money with domain names. Once you get into the swing of things, you can get into the higher priced domains and make even bigger profit.

There are many places to buy and sell domain names like Sedo, GoDaddy Auctions, Snapnames, Aftermarket, NameJet, Moniker, as well as numerous webmaster forums. Especially in webmaster forums you can advertise for free and find some great deals.  Once you have acquired these domain names you will either have to park them with a domain parking service, which most are free,  or place a web page on it to help increase the value of the domain until you sell it.

Just like starting any online business, you have to do some research and look at the trends of what is being bought and sold plus findng the best places to market them. Always keep in mind that you want to buy low and sell high, and not get into the opposite trap where it could become a losing venture.

Many are successfully making money online with domain names and you can too.
