Have you ever made money by selling domains?

madza profile image Madza ・1 min read

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
