Domain Flipper to Millionaire in 5 years

Copy from DNFORUM, text by Duke at DNJournal. Let's hope there are some parallels to our IDN futures here.

"Page Howe showed up at DNForum.com in early 2003 looking to rebound from a .com bust that had decimated his extensive Internet business ventures. Howe was there hoping to climb his way back up the ladder by buying domains, often for under $100, and flipping them for $1,000 or more.

Flash forward four years to 2007 and there was Howe standing on top of the world after completing not just one but two seven-figure sales in the same year, Seniors.com for $1.8 million and Guy.com for $1 million.

In four short years Howe has become a poster boy for the amazing things that are possible in this business. DNJournal.com's new August Cover Story details how Howe discovered domains and went on to become one of the industry's key players."

Interesting though how these guys still think English is the only game in town.

If you are a flipper, why would you care which language the domain is in?

It certainly baffles the mind a bit that so few can see the parallels yet alone the marketing value of native language domains, especially for languages like Chinese with a massive population base and the largest group of internet users.
