How to make money on internet domains
Earning on domains is a relatively simple thing that you do not need any more specialized knowledge. It may even happen that thanks to the fact that we only devote a few minutes to register a domain, we will be able to earn a good several million dollars.
This was the case with sex.com, toys.com and business.com domains. However, the probability that we will succeed in doing so is small. Every minute, better and better domains are bought out. By better I mean those that just fall into our head.
Let’s say I have a health problem, it would be easiest for me to enter Zdrowie.pl or the doctor.pl. However, these types of domains will not help me much, because they are waiting for someone to buy them out. Someone specifically registered them, just to earn some money.
Registering a domain is a matter of a few or a dozen zlotys, and nowadays there are many promotions, thanks to which we will not have to pay a single penny for registering your own new domain. Thanks to this, we will be able to earn a lot of money without investing literally anything.
All you need is the right word or words and a lot of luck, thanks to which we will be able to register such a domain that is unique and nobody came up with the idea to buy it. However, with every second, our chances decrease, so I advise you to hurry up.
How to sell an Internet domain?
Selling domains, just like creating them, is not one of the most difficult in the world. There are several ways to do this. The simplest is to simply contact us, who will help potential buyers who are looking for a domain for themselves to contact us and acquire our domain at the right price.
However, in most cases, hosting is required, which costs a bit more than the domain. That’s why you can take shortcuts and use the online marketplace where we will display our unique domain for sale. In some cases, we can earn a lot. But there is also the possibility that our domain will be very valuable, and we will sell it for a pittance.
Buying and selling domains
In domain trade, there is a concept like the primary market and the secondary market. The primary market is a unique domain that we can register for ourselves, and the secondary market is the purchase of a domain that someone already has. Nowadays, this second method is much more common and more often used by various environments involved in this type of trade. In short, it’s about buying a domain from a natural person who has potential and selling it much more expensive. These types of methods are usually more profitable than in the primary market. However, in this case, you need to invest more money that will allow us to make a purchase.
Domain parking – page redirection
Domain parking relies on redirecting your unique domain to another service. For example, Microsoft would like their browser to be much more popular than Google’s search engine, therefore it offers them a redirect from google.com, on bing.com, paying them a certain amount of money. Of course, this type of example is impossible, but I wanted to illustrate how this precedent looks like.
In addition, on this type of website, you can post various ads about the keyword contained in the domain. Thanks to this domain you can easily earn as a result of clicking on ads, by people who instead of using the search engine simply enter the address of the site in the browser, hoping that they will find the right page. Unfortunately, this rarely happens or stets. It depends on what perspective we look at.
Cybersquatting and Typosquatting
DomainCybersquating is a variation of squatting, that is, occupying private or public premises to illegally reside in them. Cybersquatting is something similar, it’s just about dealing with domains. In the case of cybersquatting, many domains are registered, which are usually the name of a certain company. For example, we hear in the news about a new company that deals in oil extraction.
We check their domain and see that it exists, but only .com, then we register various variations of this domain .net, .org, .pl, .biz or whatever else we want there. Thanks to this, a given company will not be able to register such a domain and may be forced to buy it from us. However, this is not always how it works. Because this type of activity is not completely legal, and domain-related disputes often end up in court.
Typosquatting is in a sense a similar but legal version of cybersquatting. It’s about registering popular domains, with an error like gogol.com. Thanks to this domain we are able to check how many people enter into wrong domains, and we can also earn money by redirecting the domain or placing ads on it. Moreover, if we put interesting content on this site, it is possible that Internet users will visit it later with full awareness of what will easily help us create a community around us.
