Flipping Domain Names for Profit

Flipping Domain Names for Profit
I bought my first two domain names back in 1985 when they cost $50 year and you had to register them for two years ($100 per domain).

Back then I made a list of a ton of great dot com domains I could register.  I just could not afford to spend $100 each to grab them.  Little did I know then that I would have made millions each on the domains I could have grabbed.

In the late 90's the cost to register a domain name dropped and I registered hundreds of domains.

Since then, I have purchased over 10,000 domain names.  I have sold domain names for a huge profit (several in the $100,000 range, and many in the $5,000+ range).

Every day about 100,000 domain names expire (usually because the previous registrant does not renew it) and there is Gold to be found.  Yes, one mans trash is another mans treasure.

The fact is that very good domain names do expire.  I have bought two 3-letter English word domains, and several hundred longer English word domains…
