Have you ever made money by selling domains?

Think of the domain industry like any commodity, or stocks, or real estate, whichever works for you. If there is a market there is the potential to make money.

It really boils down to you have to be able to buy a domain that someone will want and be able to sell it at some point for more.

Have you ever considered domain flipping as a side-business?
Is it worth getting involved in today's market?

Not personally. But I know someone who was offered a substantial sum of money for one of their domains. They used it as a forwarder to their primary domain in a related field.

Following the interest they declined (and the follow up offer), and set up a new business using that name.

Some domains will be more valuable than others. But if it's worth a lot to someone, there's probably a market to exploit
