What to Do With an Unused Domain Name

Online, a domain name is used to provide identity to a website. In a way, it is similar to a phone number. Those searching for information on Microsoft products, head to Microsoft.com, and so forth. Although many domain names are in use, others are not. These domain names have been purchased, but are sitting unused. For most, this is a big mistake. Why? Because there are many ways in which a domain name owner can make money. How?

If you find a domain name that is unused, research. Is that domain name a common or popular name? Can it be used to generate income through affiliate programs and pay-per-click advertising? Can it be resold for a profit? If so, contact the owner. You can do so by performing a WHOIS search. If the domain owner has their information set to public, you can see it. This allows you to set up contact and offer purchase. If the current owner is unfamiliar with computers or domain name flipping, they may not know how valuable their name is, giving you an opportunity to turn a huge profit.

As shown above, you can make money with unused domain names that you do not own by offering a purchase. This is a good approach to take, but it will be hit or miss. You may have an owner who is unwilling to sell or one who wants too much money. For that reason, focus your attention on domain names you own or intend to buy.

If you own a domain that that is sitting unused, consider flipping it. You can usually make a profit. Find a third party website that allows you to list your domain for sale, such as Sedo.com. These websites usually have a solid marketing plan in place, meaning your for sale listing will be seen. The only downside is that you are charged a fee. You can also opt for free methods of selling. Posting an advertisement on Craigslist.org, social media or ads on google or bing search are some ways to get started.

A domain name can also be used. A website with good content can make money through pay-per-click programs and affiliate programs. So, why don’t you take a domain name that you own that includes the phrase free samples and list articles about finding free samples. Pay-per-click advertisements will show offers for free samples, so your site visitors will click on them. Each time a click is made, you make money. If you aren’t a good writer, hire one.

When using a domain name, look for options. A domain name isn’t enough, you need web hosting or a platform. Blogspot.com is home to Blogger. With this, you are able to attach a domain name to a blog. This means that you use the Blogger platform for free, but still have your own domain name. This extends your profits, as you don’t have to pay for web hosting.

Domain name parking is the phrase to describe a domain name not in use. It is parked and waiting for further action. Many times, a domain name is parked when a webmaster is working on building a website. Other times, a domain name is parked when someone is waiting to flip and make a sale. Instead of having a “this site is now under construction,” or a “page not found,” message appear, have moneymaking advertisements show. Afternic, TheParkingPlace and Sedo have moneymaking programs available for parked domains.

Finally, all domain owners have the option of letting their domain names expire. Yes, this is an option, but it isn’t a good one. Why pay $10 or more for a domain name and then not use it or at least try to profit from it? Did you want to start a website about free product samples and then change your mind? Instead of letting your domain name expire, sell it. Even if you only make $5, you still don’t waste money.

How to Choose a Profitable Domain Name

A domain name is an identification marker used for IP addresses and websites. Although occasionally referred to as website addresses, domain names are so much more. When you know how to choose them and use them, they can be a profitable venture.

As previously stated, a domain name can be turned into a moneymaking tool. How? It depends. There are many ways to profit from a good, quality domain name. Parked domains, which are not in use, can be monetized with special pay-per-click programs designed for parked domains. A domain name can be purchased with web hosting and used or flipped for a profit.

So, do you want to make easy money with domain names? Whether you want to park a domain with advertisements, use it, or flip it, the name you choose is important. To profit from a domain name, a simple word or phrase will not do. It needs to be catchy, as well as meet other criteria.

Always opt for a domain name with a .com address. Yes, there are alternative address endings available including .tv, .net, and so forth, but try to avoid them. Internet users instinctively type in .com. Even in cases where they know the website they needs ends in .net, most still type in .com by habit. Dot com addresses are more profitable to use and sell.

When creating a domain name, avoid dashes. For many professionals, dashes are an easy way to get around an unavailable domain name. If your sole purpose is to flip a domain name, possibly try dashed names. Unless you are selling to an inexperienced business owner or personal website owner, your profits will be smaller. This is because typing dashes into an address bar is an inconvenience for internet users; therefore, not as profitable.

If your intent is to make money through domain name flipping or parking with advertisements, buy more than one domain name. Not only that, buy variations of the name. For example, did you hear that a new car dealership may be opening in your area? Attempt to buy a domain name before the owners get a chance. Snap up all of their options. Make it so that they can only buy from you and for more money. For example, consider LAcardealers.com, LosAcardealers.com LAcarsforless.com, and so forth.

Do not just guess on good domain names, but research them. The best domains to sell or use are those that contain popular keyword phrases. For example, Wii and eBay are popular keyword phrases now. Internet users search the internet looking for information on these subjects. If you are making money by writing on the subjects of eBay or Wii and have advertisements displayed on your website, you will get a higher search engine ranking with a good keyword phrase in your domain name. For example, consider something like SellonEbay.com.

If you intend to use a website, fill it with content, and monetize with ads, you are already familiar with keyword tracker tools. If not, perform a standard internet search. These are tools that can tell you what internet users are searching for. Good domain names will match the phrases used. Domain names with popular keyword phrases are the most profitable to flip.

In addition to researching popular internet search phrases, register domain names for popular topics. The names of popular movies, books, and people are likely already registered. Before giving up, consider variations. For example, instead of HighSchoolMusical.com, try HSMfan.com.

Finally, choose a short domain name. Never use more than 30 or 40 characters. Internet users not only use search engines to find a website, but the address bar. Most are likely to remember short names only. Those short named domains are easier to flip and profit from.

Domain For Sale – Tips For Domain Buying

Want to buy a domain for sale? Not sure where to look? Well, I’ve got some answers for you. Having your own domain name is step one to having a successful internet business. Many people mistakenly think that it’s ok to go with the free services such as WordPress or Blogger. If you’re only building a blog so you can keep in touch with family or friends than that’s a good way to go about it, but if you’re trying to make money online there are several reasons why that isn’t the best course of action.

For one thing, when you use the free services you don’t own anything. You are completely at the mercy of the company, and their policies. If they decide they don’t like something in your blog they can pull the plug, and they don’t have to warn you or give you an explanation. You don’t want to spend weeks, months or years building up a successful business to just wake up one day and find that your website has been offline.

The second thing is that you want to brand yourself. As you build your business you want to gain name recognition. This is a very important element to any successful business and without your own domain name it’s virtually impossible. If you are using free services it just makes you look unprofessional, this is especially bad if you’re trying to build yourself up as a teacher in a certain field.

Now that I’ve convinced you that you need to invest in your own domain names, you need to know how to pick the best name and where to buy one. For most people the best way to pick out a good domain name is to start with keyword research. Pick a list of highly searched keywords in your niche market and then try to get those exact keywords as domain names.

For example, if your niche is dog training and you find a great keyword: Quick and easy dog training. Than you would try to get QuickAndEasyDogTraining.com as your domain name. You do want to keep the domain name around 3 or 4 words max, but with a domain name like this you will get a ton of free traffic since your domain name is the exact search term people are looking for.

Now that you’ve decided on what your domain names should be you can go to places like Domain.com or NameCheap and do a search to see if the domain name you want is available. Many times it won’t be, that’s why it’s important to have quite a long list of possible names. I personally recommend using other extensions than just a .com. I’ve found that I have just as good luck with a .net or .org (it can also be easier to get one of these extensions). If you buy just one domain name at a time for a one year period it’s usually around $10 a year. You can get a discount if you buy more than one domain name at a time or if you buy it for several years in advance.

I personally don’t buy my domain names for more than a year at a time at first, true you’ll have to renew it in a year (the company you bought it from will let you know when it needs to be renewed) but why pay for several years for a domain name that might not be a moneymaker? I personally like to pay for one year until I know whether or not I’ve found a moneymaking niche, when I know I’ve got a profitable niche on my hands I’ll pay for several years in advance.

There you go, everything you need to know when it comes time to find a domain for sale. Having your own domain name is one of the most important steps in building a profitable online empire.
