Default Income for life: The Domain Industry

Hello All

This is the tekman. I have a web domain business that I run and I it has led me into the interesting world of domain names. Experts are now saying that the internet will have even more users over the next 10 years. This means that the domain industry will be busy. I am looking forward to the new shifts in technology and markting as the domain industry changes.

While the .com still rules...some others are creeping up behind.
Feel free to share your thoughts on the domain industry and let me know.

Keep surfing!
Tekman

Welcome to the forum! The trick with domain names is to distinguish yourself from the whole slew of companies already offering them. What do you do to accomplish this?

Hi,
I also am in the domain name biz since Jan of 1999. I think that the ccTLD's are going up in value and the big one is .us. Look at all the new sales in the .us.
Look at VOIP.us just sold for $25,000, industry.us sold for $17,000 and CellPhones.us sold for $12,250. This all happen in the last 5 months. There is only 856,982 .us sold, and in the .com there is 37,396,000 sold, so there is so many good .us domain names still there, but you better move as the more .us sell for big money the more will be registered.

I own many .com domain names and own maybe 50 .us domain names. I own some top level .us domain names like WallStreet.us, Mp3.us, Computers.us, Paintings.us, Reservations.us. But I also own some in the .com that I think are great like WhatsOnline.com, USSports.com, and many more.

I think that a good domain name needs to first have easy words to spell and remember and in some I like the keyword in the domain name.

Henry

Another newbie here

I am not in the domain name business but have considered it. I own over 88 domain names which isn't even alot compared to most but I plan on buying a bunch more. Would it benefit me for my own domain name buying as well?

Thanks!
Jessa

Default gambling?

The domain name "business" sounds a lot like speculation/gambling to me. Am I missing the mark in thinking of it this way?

Default HELLO Jim!

This Business is not a gambling or what ever you call it business. This is a legit business. It is not a Get Rich Quick Scam. If you would like to take a look, it will not cost you a thing!

Also why would Yahoo.ws or any other Big Business have anything to do if it was not on the level?

I have made some great friends, plus a nice income, for a very,very, low monthly cost. Go on and check it out, and see for yourself!

My Best to You,
sweetgrame
