    Hi guys, I've been attempting to develop a method lately that involves selling domains that recently have expired or have been deleted. If they are good single worded domains or something, would they fetch a nice price? At least more than the cost of the domain?

    I know it'd be pretty rare when a good one comes a long though.

    if you are buying them and then trying to sell them, you wont make money. you will sell a few but the large majority wont sell.

    That used to be a good business. You could still sell to some businesses. For instance, if you had a domain on how to get an attorney, you could send emails to owners of attorney websites. They could be interested. At the same time, do not buy domain names costing $1,000 and above. They could be very difficult to sell.

    I noticed a domain that has been expired for a large company who should be all over their site. I wanted to buy it and just call them and try to sell it back. Because I don't think they have a clue or their web admin is on vacation or something.
    Any suggestions? (not trying to thread hi-jack)

    If it's a trademark then forget it, they can get the domain back in no time.
