    Howdy folks, this is a repost from my lounge post, which I feel is in the wrong spot and might annoy some people.

    I've been looking into various IM and internet-related money-making techniques over the last few weeks (I have a journal going here), and gave website development a go--it seems like a decent overall method, but it's very slow to get any momentum going. I'm in dire need of some money recently, so I was wondering if any of you think I could flip this website:
    Code:
    wisdoogle.com
    It's new and has no natural traffic as of yet (I haven't really promoted it).

    Initially, I figured it would be sort-of self-promoting among a little niche of people, and thus could make a few bucks on the side, but I need some certainty that putting promotional work in will bring in the doe--and I'm not sure that that is the case for this. I need money for school ASAP, so I'm gonna flip this if I can!

    I'm guess what I'm looking for is a little background information, in addition to your opinion on whether or not I'll even be able to sell the site. What exactly will I have to transfer in the event of a sale? The domain name along with the files for the website? Do I need to transfer a hosting account, too? Thanks guys, you've all helped me a lot!

    Anyway, your feedback is really helpful! Thanks if any of you can shed any insight on this kinda thing for me!

    I dont recognize that name or keyword (maybe Im reading it wrong)

    So basically it's not exactly something people are searching google for.
    However, any domain name can be flipped and sold if you find something people want and fill their need with great content, and things that draw people BACK to your site after their initial visit.

    So I dont think that domain has any special value when compared to another fresh registered domain, but when Google was registered it didint make any sense either.

    but if your looking for a quick sell of the domain, id say not gonna happen

    I suppose I'll give it a shot. Before I do that, though, will I have to transfer the hosting account over in the event of a sale?

    Hi in my opinion it can be purchased only by someone who has no clue about internet marketing ,
    "will I have to transfer the hosting account over in the event of a sale?"
    You can sell it either way , but at least it should be posted in item description
