    hey fellas. i am wondering if any of you have tried (and your thoughts) on buying and selling domain name of celebrities and people that on the web are popular. say...someone that has 5K searches a month but doenst own her/his website.

    i could go directly to them and ask them if they would be interested...but then again, if i just sell them online it might be worth more cash?

    what are your thoughts?

    I don't know about selling the domain, but you can always rank for their name and push merch/CPA offers/something else. :anyway:

    I think those celebrities don't give a sh*t about domains with their names, maybe very small percentage of them does, but I don't think they will pay you big bucks for it. Just my opinion.
    Secondly, using those domains to put some stuff related to the names of those people is illegal. I have many domains and I have clickbank.tld and maybach.tld (where I can't tell you the actual tld - forum rules) and I asked a lawyer what can I do with it. He told me I can use for example maybach.tld with no problem as long as it is not related to the car brand "Maybach". Same with the Clickbank domain - can not be related to actual Clickbank.
