Nah. You can still make some money. Get them and flip 'em on ebay :) Make a simple landing page and send a bunch of traffic to it (social bookmarking, senuke, traffic exchange, blog comments, xrumer etc.) Then sell it saying you have X amount of uniques daily.

One tip:

NEVER THINK YOU CAN JUST REGISTER A DOMAIN AND THEN SELL IT THE NEXT DAY FOR $100, BECAUSE YOU THINK IT SOUNDS NICE.

If you are flipping , get LLLL.coms still not to late can still get 3 premium letter LLLL.coms for $20-$50, premiums are getting more and more expensive.

LLLL.net all premiums are still cheap.

Yes, your a tad late, but its never too late until all the "major domains" (1-5 letters or generics) are taken.

I wish I had bought vodka.com...
It was sold last year (I think) for about $8 000 000.

Shit... Sell one domain name and then retire. That's crazy...

There is plenty of money to still be made. Look at the YTD sales chart here:
Code:
http://www.dnjournal.com/ytd-sales-charts.htm
And also look at the weekly chart. Some of the domains are just parked, yet have sold for large amounts.

Lots of names of the list are off the top of someone's head. Like Meetpeople*com, which sold for 100k and goes to a dating sign-up for true*com. Just looking at the list you could come up with some variations.

I think of domains everyday and always write them down. Sometimes I will hear an expression or phrase that someone uses in a conversation and it could be a winner, so write it down -anything is possible.

Another good site for domain information/resources.

Freshdrop.net

Membership with TDNAM is 5$ a year, where godaddy offers all the domains that expire for 5$ each plus the yearly registration fee.

So you can pick up good aged domains for 15$ a pop.

Freshdrop is just used to sort these listings so you don't spend all day looking for what you want to buy.

If you aren't incredibly stupid you can simple buy an interesting domain, write five or so articles and do a quick article marketing run and have cash coming in from it for a few years.

Cool, thanks for tips. Are there any tools that could help me quickly check for free domains with different word combination, probably something involving thesaurus and synonym search? Also - are there any e-books, articles about domain trading?

Digitalpoint is a good place to sell domains, usually i sell domaons(.com) around $100. So i have a $90 profit from a domain. To sell a domain following requirements are needed.
  • Google page rank [PR 1-3]
  • Alexa rank [less than 500,000]
  • Traffic
  • number of letters
  • Combination of key words

How do you determine to register a domain and promot it for sell?

I know someone asking me to write a program to generate domains which is one letter less than all domains within alexa top 10000 list, for example, basing on yahoo.com, he asks me to generate following domains: 1) ahoo.com, 2) yhoo.com, 3) yaoo.com, 4) yaho.com. Do you think these domain is valuable? Thanks.

Don't generate domains, use common sense to buy domains. i mean try few key word combination. No need to get thse types of domains like "yahoo" etc.
you can use some niches, be creative. In these there is a big trend for Proxy, Image hosting, Forums domains...
For a proxy site, don't use proxy, hide key words. In this case you can try a domain name with safe, fast, visit, access etc keywords for a proxy domain. a lot of domain buyers in DP. :cow_yello

Weird, I can't just find an awesome domain name and sell it?

i think these days to find a rare and premium domain names is very hard to do because we compete with a large number of big player and company who hav the right tool and resources to do it.. ( for example they can snatch the domain within second they expired ).. i think i go with find an aged domain with pr and keep it and maintain it for couple moths and selling it with higher price..

but i do recommend you always searching for a good, rare, premium domains cos we never know our luck right ? :cool:

Page ranks is a big factor to sell a domain.

I so agree mutant, I have enom software that grabs domains as they drop, but they have to drop and be registered by enom first, and there is no way they are going to let a premium LLL.com get thro and registered for $8.95.
It is high time somebody smarter than me (and thats mostly everybody) came up with a democratic lottery system for dropped domains. As it is, Verisign drops are just handing cash out to the big 4, it makes my blood boil.
I do get the odd crumb off the big table tho'.

I wouldn't even pay the registration fee on those.

Maybe you cannot read? Free domains suck for SEO or resale.

Most of these qualifications Alexa, low PR, etc can only be used to sell to DP retards. I have no clue why anyone would pay more than 20$ for a four letter domain unless it spells a word or something.

Most of these domains are just speculator retards trading among each other.

If your business is named alabama ant extermination company, the domain alabama ant exterminator is immensely more valuable than aaec.com.

WTF remembers aaec.com?

I will again state.

If you aren't incredibly stupid you can simple buy an interesting domain, write five or so articles and do a quick article marketing run and have cash coming in from it for a few years.

Domain trading is generally speaking a waste of time when you consider the amount of money you can make just making small sites and slapping adsense on them.

When the economy tanks and higher dollar worthwhile domains plummet in price, maybe it will time to buy. (buy a domain like financing.com would be an example not 392DK.com)

I will give you a STEP BY F'ING STEP.
1.) Go to Freshdrop.net search for interesting domains that are at least 3 years old preowned on godaddy.
2.) Buy the domain PUBLICAUTOCREDIT.com for 5$+11$ yearly registration fee.
3.) Write 5 auto credit related articles, use latent semantic indexing, and copy and paste them into a wordpress installation.
4.) Use article post robot, write 3 versions of the article and spin it using varying credit related anchor texts focusing on auto credit.
5.) Submit articles.

If you have done this stuff before it takes no more than two hours once you actually get the domain, which can take up to a week.

The top ranking site for auto credit has a PR of 0, there are adequate searches and google says the average CPC is over 8$.

And see I don't have to worry about telling you this, because there are literally thousands of expiring names on TDNAM that I could purchase and develop if I so chose, but I don't have the time.

The whole research process took me 5 minutes. A site like that would start generating 5$ a day within a week or two, because there is no sandbox and the keyword is in the domain with a .com extension.
