Buying Domain names as an Investment
Have you ever considered purchasing domain names as an investment? Lot of web-masters purchase good and average domain names as an investment, this is called as domain reselling or domain real estate market. Yes, it certainly does has great future prospects as domain names are like land on the earth – the need is ever increasing and the resources are limited!
What type or domains to invest your money on: it’s not a bright idea to purchase any domain and expecting someone to contact you to purchase at higher price. It might seem very tempting to invest on domain names but you need to be careful here. Below average domain names without much brand-able possibility are hard to resell and it’s value hardly increases over time. I personally have made the mistake of purchasing loads of domain names and eventually ending up letting it to expire.
How to invest in domain names: a new domain name registration would cost you less than 10 USD while you can get above average brandable domain names for 50 – 100 USD from Domain resellers or companies that snipe domains that are just dropped. Consider purchasing 10 new domain names of poor values versus purchasing one domain name or value 100 from a reseller. If planned properly, you could ensure the latter has atleast more value than 100 USD a yea later.
It’s not the quantity of the domain names you acquire that matters over time, it’s the sheer quality and value of a good domain name that really counts!
