The cost to register and renew .COM domains is very likely going up…but it probably won’t make much of a difference to most people

In case you haven’t been following the incredibly boring world of big companies working out agreements with the US Department of Commerce, here’s the skinny.

Verisign, the company that currently runs .COM has been working on inking a deal that could allow them to increase prices by 7%. They have approved from the US Department of Commerce but in order to get the deal done they need sign off from ICANN.

The good news for Verisign here is that ICANN wants to distance themselves from regulating domain pricing…which means, if it was already approved by the DOC, they’re likely going to defer to them.

Now before you get too upset, the reality is we’re talking 7% over the next four to six years which means very little impact to most people. If you own thousands or tens of thousands of domains you’ll feel a bit of a sting but if you own hundreds of domains it’s honestly not going to impact you very much.

Let’s do the math here. Let’s suppose you own around 500 .COM domains, and you’re going to renew every single one next year. If your current renewal price is $9.99, your new renewal price will be $10.69. So rather than spending $4,995 to renew your domains you’ll now be spending $5,345. That’s an extra $350.

While I know nobody wants to spend an extra $350/year I don’t think it’s going to break the bank for someone that owns 500 domains, nor will it for. someone that owns 1,000.

Now once you’re at 5,000 domains, an extra $3,500/year might sting a bit but I sure hope you’re making quite a bit of money if you own 5,000 domains in which case, it’s all relative and that $3,500 should feel like the $350 does to the person who owns 500 domains.

Of course I know what you’re going to say now. Why the heck should these big companies continue to take money off of normal people for no additional value add? I don’t have a good answer for you there and like everyone I’d love to see things get cheaper, not more expensive. That being said my point is, unless you have thousands or tens of thousands of domains, it’s not really worth getting too upset about because the impact is pretty minimal.

Well that’s my two cents. What do you think? I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!

Pros and Cons of Domain Name Flipping

Are you looking for an easy way to make money from home? A standard internet search will show you that your options are virtually unlimited. So, which methods are best? One you want to closely examine is that of domain name flipping.

Domain name flipping is used to describe the process of buying and reselling domain names. Internet users who want to create a personal website, check to see if their domain name is available. If it isn’t, they opt for another. On the other hand, professional buyers will investigative to find the owner and make a larger purchase offer. That owner may be you. This is just once example of how domain name flipping can turn into a profitable venture.

As nice as it is to know what domain name flipping is and how it works; is it the best online moneymaking opportunity for you? It depends. That is why you should thoroughly research this venture and its pros and cons.

The Pros of Domain Name Flipping

It is an easy way to make money. In all honesty, making money online doesn’t get much easier than domain name flipping. You could spend hours reading paid emails or taking online surveys and make less than half of what you would with a domain name flip and in smaller percentage of the time. All you need to get started is a domain name.

Just about anyone can make money. As previously stated, it is very easy to make money with domain name flipping. In fact, just about anyone can. You don’t have to be internet or computer savvy. To get started, all you need to know is how to pay for a purchase online. It is really as simple as that.

There are a number of ways to sell or flip a domain. As previously stated, if you have a domain name that is in demand, a prospective buyer may contact you. This is the easiest way to make a sale and a big one. Third party domain selling websites can be used too. Although charged a fee, you are automatically connected with your targeted market.

You can make money during the process. With domain flipping, income is generated when a sale is made. With that said, there are ways to make money in the meantime. Are you waiting for someone to approach you with a large purchase offer? If so, that could take months or years. Instead of parking your domain, park it with advertisements. SEDO and Uniregistry are just two pay-per-click programs that can help you make money in the meantime.

The Cons of Domain Name Flipping

Domain flipping can be risky. It is rare to find an online moneymaking opportunity that isn’t risky. Still, it is always important to know what those risks are. In the case of domain name flipping, it can be a business loss or a small profit. You can flip a domain name for a $10,000 profit, but you may only make a profit of $10. The good news is that you can minimize your risks. Do not just start buying domains; think about it first. Opt for names that may come into demand, such as possible names for a movie, book, or business.

Domain name flipping can take time. As previously stated, you can sell a domain name on a third party website or wait until you are approached. Waiting until you are approached will return the highest profit, but it can take longer. Without actively marketing your for sale domain, it can take years and many renewals. On the other hand, a third party domain listing website is likely to produce immediate results.
