Talking How to really make money --Shanghai IDC Network Information Technology Co., Ltd

The Domain Selling Business .... How to really make money on Internet-- Shanghai IDC Network Information Technology Co., Ltd

Author: Barbara(Shanghai IDC Network Information Technology Co., Ltd)
The Domain Selling Business.
A real business where insight and timing are critical. Where smart people can make money by

making smart moves. In other words, a true Internet business that could make you a

millionaire. If you have the skills, the smarts and the moxie, and the key insights.

Why do People buy domain names?
Everyone in the business industry is aware of the value of the right domain name. It is the

company’s brand name and it is critical to driving traffic to the home website. The right

domain name is worth hundreds, even thousands of dollars to a business. The right name is

so generic that a user might type in a random phrase and add .com or .net and land on that

respective businesses site. Check out what some very recent domain names went at public

auction. sold for $135,000 on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C. went for $115,000 on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C. for $110,721 on SEDO.
And for $88,240 on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C.

How to really make money on selling Domains?
That’s some serious money. Imagine where you would be right now if you had purchased any

one of these a few years ago when domain names were so cheap people could buy these basic

names at less than $10.00 per name. Better yet imagine where you would be if you had the

foresight to have purchased any two of these basic domain names.
Here is how lucrative domain reselling can be – these six entities each sold for

$10,000.00 at the recent on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C. on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C. on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C. on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C. on Afternic/BuyDomains on Moniker T.R.A.F.F.I.C.

Four of these break the rules of a single word domain name yet they met the needs of a

specific company and were worth the thousands that the right company put forth to secure

the name

A wealth of web sites exist devoted to the marketing and sales of domain names

Moniker is the only provider of the trademark Domain Asset Management services. The company

provides a single-point-of-access to manage domains and maximize the selling of those

names. Moniker is the company that recently handled the sale of the domain name

for $9.5 million. The company also handled which sold for $12 million in cash and

stock. How about for $2 million, at $1.5 million and for

$1.2 million? Moniker also handled the sales of,,,

and more.
SEDO has more than 500,000 members trading domains around the world. SEDO currently has

more than 8 million premium domain names available and is working globally in more than 21

languages. SEDO offers it users all of the tools necessary to buy and sell domains

including domain name appraisals, brokerage services, promotion, and a domain parking


Check out these numbers – 1,500 domain sales a month yielding $3 million in sales –

8,000,000 domains available, 3,000,000 of them parked. is another leading domain name company that is recognized for its work in the

secondary-domain-name business. Offering an extensive exchange network, the company works

with partner domain name registrars and then refers buyers for aftermarket domain

purchases. Afternic is another one stop shop that provides anonymous sale environment for

potential bidders.

Afternic managed the $1 million sale of Since 2002, the company has experienced

triple-digit annual growth rates. is a one stop portal that features the latest in the domain marketing

field. The site advertises domains for sale by category and offer free classified

advertising space, options such as hosting services, leasing, job opportunities and other

items wanted or for sale. It also offers a series of live chat rooms that are available to

every pixel owner including rooms that offer discussion options devoted to beginners and

newbies to the domain business. The site also offers chat rooms broken out for those people

who selling or buying and even offers one chat area focused solely on those who are seeking

one specific domain or website.,,, and more.

How much will people pay for the right domain name? A Lot!!

We have already talked about and but how about,,

and Each sold for 7.5 million dollars apiece in 1999. After the dot com bubble

burst in 2001 the general consensus was that no other domain name would reach the lofty

heights that was able to attain. Man, were folks wrong! sold for

5.5 million in May of this year, sold for $5 million in January and sold

for 3.5 million in 2005.

Domain Names Have Their Own Image

Let’s face it, image is exceptionally critical to ever business and domain names foster

their own image. Short, one word names with the dot com after them are in extreme demand. A

domain name must be memorable because a domain name must be able to stand alone. Customer’

s today type in the most used domain names simply from memory. A great domain name means

search engines simply aren’t necessary.

Though everyone wants that one word name, it is possible to create some really useful

domain options using simple prefixes. A simple example is the use of the word auto and the

long ago sold out domain name. Other options can work for that same term,,,, etc. The trick is to be creative

but to get something simple that sells the business at hand.

Do you have skills predicting future trends? What names might be big in the next few years

if a woman or a black man were elected president, if an issue other than terrorism begins

to creep into the world psyche? If green becomes in or America revamps its health care

system what will be the key domain names that will represent the future? What names today

represent a great business opportunities for you tomorrow?
