More Big Money Domain Name Sales

There have been some more impressive domain name sales reported at DNJournal this week - Domain Sales.

From 23 - 29 July 2007 the following domain names were sold.

lips.com ................................... $135,000
note.com .................................. $115,000
forest.com ................................ $110,721
coed.com ................................... $ 88,240
laptop.net .................................. $ 40,000
wick.com ................................... $ 33,000
securityequipment.com .......... $ 29,420
heirlooms.com .......................... $ 29,420
mortgages.mobi ....................... $ 25,000
webalerts.com .......................... $ 22,224

These are just the top ten, there are dozens more, for the full list you need to check out the DNJournal site above.

The sites above are not even developed websites, just domain names which are parked with a parking company and which bring in revenue via adsense ads.

At the moment I still haven't managed to crack the 'secret' of selling domain names. It feels a bit like some sort of secret society where people in the inner circle exchange names for large amounts of money (millions in some cases). You feel like shouting out "hey I've got some cool names too!" Maybe you have to pay some sort of entrance fee to get invited in ?

The one thing about domain names though is that there is an infinite number, so you can have a lot of fun playing with words to see what you can come up with. Recently I've been registering .in names (.in is the country code for India - India is a big place! Population over 1 billion, the middle classes all speak English, and they are rapidly developing a high tech industry so I do believe this is a very good time to get in on the ground floor, there are still plenty of names to be bought - I do my buying through answerable.com who so far have been OK without being great, but they have the advantage of being cheaper than other places)


There is big money to be made in domain names, as I described in a previous post about Kevin Ham - You Wanna Be a Domain Name Millionaire - and one day I hope to make it ! :-)

Please feel free to leave any comments tips or suggestions.
