Elliot’s Blog

Elliot has just written an excellent post full of useful information for domainers and well worth reading. In his post, he provides domain speculation pointers. Elliot provides some great tips for finding unregistered domains that are worth more than reg fee.

While a lot of people state that all the best names are gone already, certainly there are a lot of decent names that haven’t yet been registered. I think that, especially for domainers new to the field or on low budgets, hunting for these types of names is worthwhile. As Elliot points out, these are somewhat speculative investments. However, if you figure out how to do this well, even if you only sell a few of the many you register, you can still make some good money.

Elliot gives 3 main tips for types of domains to look for:

1. City + Travel Service. Travel domains can often be worth a lot. Elliot recommends looking for domains that incorporate city names that are popular tourist destinations combined with a travel service, such as CroatiaTourGuides.com.

2. Health Domains. Elliot recommends thinking up possible products that would be used for a health problem, for instance, FishOilCream.com. Sounds smelly to me, but hey, there are weirder looking creams in my wife’s medicine cabinet.

3. City + Profession or Activity or Product. Elliot states that these are the least speculative of the bunch as if you choose wisely, there is certainly at least a bit of end user demand. Examples he gives are WashingtonDoctors.com, VirginiaMortgages.com, and PalmBeachSwimmingPools.com.

Bonus Tip: Here’s a great domaining tip from Brian: “Track all the new Wikipedia pages that are being generated. There�s a thousand pounds of shit to sift through, but you will find emerging topics that haven�t had their premium.com registered yet.”

Further Bonus Tip: If you haven’t read it already, look at registering new domains for profit.

    […] My comments: Dude, you’ve got to hook me up with that industry that’s giving out free twenty dollar bills! Seriously, developing an expertise in a niche is the way to go. And just because a domain sounds good, doesn’t mean it has value. There needs to be potential commercial endusers for the name. As well, I’ve also previously discussed city + profession or activity or product domain names. […]

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you,
    I certainly get irked while people think about worries
    that they plainly do not know about. You managed
    to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without
    having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Excellent blog here! Also your web site loads up fast!
    What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your
    host? I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

    Can I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody who truly knows what they’re talking about on the web.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem
    to light and make it important. More and more people really need to read
    this and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you are
    not more popular since you definitely have the gift.

Got something to say?
