    hey I want to know about the buying and selling of domains name, like how we can earn from it? Is it necessary to have a website on it or just a domain without content can be sold?

    Just a domain can be sold. Say you find a product you think will get very popular in future. You can buy it at registration cost and sell later. Otherwise, you can buy brandable domains and try to sell for higher price.

    There are also many facebook groups in which you can offer such domains with good names. If your domain is with good name you can sell it for a good price, otherwise, you should sell the domain + website if you want to earn good money.

    I am not much fan of Facebook groups. 9 out of 10 of those offers are scam or fraud.

    Auction sites are best for buying and selling domains

    yes for the premium listing they charge 30% commission or minimum $50 after the sale and for normal listing, you have to pay a certain amount in advance. Premium listed domains sell faster than a normal listing

    Flipping Domains nowadays is a hard business. you need a little bit buffer to grow up a portfolio where people can buy.
