Sell Domain names and Make Money

Domain flipping is the process of purchasing a domain name and re-selling it for a profit. Typically, startup costs are low. In fact, many people who have found it to be a lucrative business… started on a shoestring budget.

Another big advantage of the business is the fact that it is suitable for all age groups. Many teenagers have and continue to make good money buying and selling domain names.

When it comes to a successful website or blog, the actual domain name is one of the most important factors. This is especially true in regard to achieving and maintaining high search engine rankings.

The best domain names to flip are those short in length and easy to remember. As a rule, only .com, .net and .org (in that order) should be considered. These have always been Google’s top three preferences.

Once the domain name has been purchased, reselling it “as is” is not recommended. Not only is this very hard to do, it is rarely profitable.

The ideal way to flip a domain is to develop it into a website or blog, which will in turn interest as many visitors as possible. This can be achieved by creating a few interesting pages of content, adding a header or 2 or 3 relevant graphics, including an update subscription box and adding monetization of some sort.

Never purchase a domain name, which infringes on any trademarked name or product. There is nothing worse than creating a site only to have to take it down for legal reasons… especially when it has already been re-sold to another person. Unfortunately, these cases are virtually impossible to win in court.

Interestingly enough, it is also possible to make passive income in the domain flipping business. This is achieved by purchasing one (or several) domains and utilizing a service such as Google’s Adsense for Domains, which is similar to the original Google Adsense program.

In a nutshell, these parked domains earn revenue for their owners each time a visitor clicks on an ad relevant to that specific URL. This is the money generating alternative to the typical “404 error” page.
