    i want to be able to sell them, but i don't know if i should just sell them, or try and get traffic to them first. i don't know how i'm going to get traffic to them though, since i think in australia (where i live) it's illegal to have porn sites.

    has anybody had any experience with selling domains that don't have a site? how did you do it (if you have)?

    cheers :)

    It's not illegal to own porn sites in Australia, but it is illegal to HOST a porn site in Australia. There are tons of wealthy Oz webmasters around. :)

    It all depends on the domains as to whether you'll be able to sell them or not - if they're freshly registered then I wouldn't get my hopes up. Your best bet is either to auction them on one of the many auction sites, or sell them privately through a forum (eg. you could try posting on GFY).

    really?? ok, that's cool then! because i would really like to get some traffic on them first, or at least some sort of simple site.

    where would i host them? any ideas? am i even allowed to host them in the US? or do would have to host them in some weird country i've never heard of?

    thanks :)

    i already have a hostgator account, but i thought that they'd suspend it if i did that??

    how long have you had your site up for without them suspending it?

    cheers :)
