My Domain Addiction and BrainTumors.com

In some of my previous postings (such as Are Premium Domains Worth It and 2012 – A Year Of Failures), I wrote about how hardly any of the domains I bought to flip or develop in the past few years have made any money, so I was done with that. So to start the new […]

2013 – A Year of Change

2013 was a year where I felt like I was treading water, with no clear direction. Unlike 2012 (A Year of Failures), this year was more good than bad. But, that is mostly because I lowered my expectations. Here’s a summary of what happened this year in my business: 1. Website Development – I have […]

Are Premium Domains Worth It?

With hundreds of new domain extensions flooding the market in the coming months, the huge shift in website browsing over the past few years from PCs to mobile devices, and the growing popularity of social media marketing (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), one might wonder if buying a premium .com domain is worth it anymore. The answer […]

10 Reasons Why I Am Eager To Sell My Domains

Sales of my domains are the same now as they have been in previous years, but lately I have been much more eager to sell them than I used to be. In the past, I would hold out for what I thought a domain was worth, but now if I get a decent offer I […]

2012 – A Year of Failures

As 2012 draws to a close, I though I would list how each of my business ventures did in 2012: The Bad Things of 2012: * I setup a bunch of new sites, but none of them have made any money: BigCelebrities.com – Social media rankings for over 15,000 celebrities using a proprietary formula that […]

I Give Up, Google Wins

For years I have been trying various ways to make money from my thousands of domain names. I sell a few each month, but much of that money goes towards covering the annual renewal fees (I pay around $9 per domain). It used to be that I could just park my names with a domain […]

It is now halfway through the year, so I figured it would be a good time to post a list of domains that I sold so far in 2012: FishingAddict.com – $6250 HireDesigners.com – $2500 MagicSpell.com – $4950 PixPlus.com – $6250 BestAmmo.com – $200 OceanSpring.com – $1,000 ComedyHour.com – $2,000 DreamChamber.com – $400 FightFire.com – […]

How To Sign Contracts Online

Because I sell 5-10 domain names a month, I frequently need to sign domain name sales contracts. The way it works now is that I print out the contract, sign it, and then fax it to the buyer or scan it into my computer and email it to them. They then have to do the […]

KindActs.com

I launched a new site today at KindActs.com, to help motivate people to do random acts of kindness. I was inspired when I saw the “Kindness Boomerang” video by the charity Life Vest Inside on James Altucher’s blog, and remembered around 5 years ago that I had bought the domain KindActs.com (I think for $1250) […]

Big Domain Purchases – Part 2

Earlier this year I bought some big domain names (such as Physical.com – see my blog posting about it) to develop into websites, even though I already have 5,000 other domains I have not developed yet. As with many of the things I do online, this was an experiment to see if I could make […]

How I Was Scammed Out Of $2000

In my 15+ years of doing business online, I have lost money to scammers many times, so I thought I would show an example of one particular scam I fell for, as a warning for other webmasters who might be in a similar situation. And, what makes it unusual is that eventually I was able […]

Big Domain Purchases

I have some interesting news to report. In a previous posting I wrote about how I was unsure what to do with my 9000 domain names because I was losing money on the vast majority of them. And, in another posting I wrote about how I developed big sites on some of my domains but […]

Interviews and Publicity – Do They Bring Fame and Fortune?

I was recently interviewed about my domain name business, and although doing any interview is always exciting, what made this one different is that it was my first video interview. You can view it at DomainSherpa. This was my first time ever using Skype or any video chat type software, and I have only ever […]

My 9000 Domains – Part 2

In a previous posting, I pondered What To Do With My 9000 Domain Names?. It has been 6 months since I wrote that, so I though I would give my readers an update: 1. Yesterday I sold a package of 4000 of my domains for $1.3 million. These domains were all parked (i had no […]

What Domain Should I Use For My TV Site?

One of the goals of my blog is to give people an inside look at how an Internet business is run. So, here’s a business decision I am currently facing: I’m planning to build a site similar to SocialGuide.com, which is a site where people discuss TV shows (chatter.usanetwork.com is another example of a site […]

What To Do With My 9000 Domain Names?

I own several hundred domains that have real websites on them, such as Dumb.com, Adoptme.com, and CheapFlowers.com, but for over 10 years I have also had around 9000 domain names that are basically just sitting there doing nothing. I have no plans to create sites on them, I just hold them in the hopes of […]

Big Domain Development – Part 3 (WatchMovies.com)

In one of my earlier blog postings I talked about how I converted WatchMovies.com from a parked domain to a site with some content on it, so it would start getting search engine traffic. But, at that time, it was still a simple site, and I did not really host any of my own content […]

Big Domain Development – Part 2 (WatchMovies.com)

In one of my earlier postings I talked about how I had not had much success developing my domain names to get traffic from the search engines (to increase income). I still am not making any significant revenue from those sites, but I recently tried adding content to one of my domains that already gets […]

Domain Names I Recently Sold – Part 2

Below is a list of some of the domain names that I have sold over the past few months. These are all domains I owned personally. A few sales were through brokers, most were from people who looked up that I was the owner and then contacted me: CelebGossip.com – $5000 FixErrors.com – $2000 MoneyListings.com […]

Sometimes Little Things Can Make A Big Difference

For many years I have had most of my 10,000 domain names “parked”, which means they basically just have ads and search engine type links on them. I would always get a few offers a month on these domains from people who looked up that I was the owner and then contacted me to make […]

Domain Flipping

I rarely buy domain names anymore, but recently I bought GameTheory.com for $6901 at a Sedo.com auction. I bought it because I thought it was cheap and would do well in Google if I built a mini-site on it (Game Theory is the mathematical study of the strategies used to win games, as featured in […]

How A Domain Sale Works

You might be wondering how I sell a domain name. Most of the time, the buyer looks me up as the owner of the domain (using a service like betterwhois.com) and then emails me an offer. At least 1/2 the time they ask me to call them or they ask for my phone number, and […]

The Psychology of a Multi-Million Dollar Sale (Bored.com)

In January 2008 I sold Bored.com and 170 related sites for $4.5 million. This represented over half of my company (I still have 200+ smaller sites and 9000 domain names), and the vast majority of my profits. Bored.com was easy to run, had 10 years of steady growth, and there was little risk that the […]

Big Domain Name Development

I have heard that some domain owners make a lot of money by taking one big domain, putting lots of content on it, and optimizing it to get listed well in the search engines. A few years ago I decided to try this with 3 domains: Ailments.com, WaterTowers.com, and iAnimals.com . For ailments.com, I paid […]

Domain Name Development

I own over 9500 domains (see my list at NameShopping.com), and only around 500 of them are developed. The rest are parked, where I make money from ads/links on them. But, the problem is that these type of domains don’t get listed well in the search engines, so they get very little traffic. I would […]
