    What is a domain name investor?

    WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME INVESTOR?

    A domain name investor is much like a real estate investor or an investor in the stock market. Of course, the underlying assets are different but some of the investing principles are very much the same. Just like a real estate investor looks for real estate to either fix up and flip or to buy and hold for cash flow from rental income the same is true of many domain investors. A domain name investor will look for domain names to buy with an end goal typically being to flip the domain name or to monetize the domain name so that it kicks off cash flow in the form of advertising, affiliate sales, ecommerce, etc. The process of investing in domain names is typically called domaining and the domain name investors are referred to as domainers.

    WHY INVEST IN DOMAIN NAMES?

    There are many good reasons to invest in domain names. It is important to understand that each and every domain name is unique and therefore has inherent value. There is only one hotels.com. Only one insurance.com. Only one cars.com. And on and on. That is not to say that every domain is valuable because some domains are pretty close to worthless (i.e. efy56u7ett90-i-09-m.info). Read this guide on how to choose a domain name for more details about what makes a good domain name.

    DOMAIN NAME INVESTING STRATEGIES

    Just like there are many different strategies for investing in stocks (i.e. “buy and hold”, “daytrading”, “dollar cost averaging”, etc.) there are also many different domain name investing strategies. Here is a listing of some of the ways that you can make money as a domain name investor:
    Buy and Hold – This domain investing strategy is just like its stock market counterpart. Choose domain names that you predict will increase in value and be worth much more than you paid for them years and years from now. This strategy typically works best for generic keyword domains and does not work as well with trend domain names.
    Quick Flip – The quick flip of a domain name for profit is akin to a real estate flipper buying a house, remodeling it, and then selling it for a quick profit. This strategy works very well if you have some web development skills (or can afford to hire someone that has some web development skills), you know the domain niche market quite well, and it especially works well if you have end user (an end user being almost anyone other than a fellow domain investor) contacts to sell the domain name with website too.
    Optimal Monetization – The domain name strategy of acquiring a domain name to monetize is done when the purchaser knows that the domain name is worth much more to them then it is in the hands of the current owner. Maybe its a big company with vast resources or even a lone individual with a highly specialized skill set that knows how to monetize domain names of a certain type and get them to making the most money possible. This strategy is best attempted by those who are ultra familiar with the niche that the domain name is in or by someone who just recognizes that even though they may not have super specialized skills that they do have a better understanding of how to monetize the domain name than the current owner.

    Investing in domains might be lucrative but there is a significant risk involve in this business first of all single words domains like cars.com , bike.com, pizza.com has already been registered so there are not much choice left again if you buy domains like fssfksljf.com then no one going to buy it.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful information. Like to add on few lines.

    The value of a domain comes from the quality score. It's not about the actual domain name or keyword anymore. It's all about the quality of the links pointing back to it. The real value is in making the domains you own worth more by increasing the PR, Domain authority, MozRank, Trust Flow, Citation Flow.

    A domain investor, also known as a domainer, is someone that registers domains as an investment. Domains are Internet real estate and there is only one of each domain name available per top-level domain (TLD).
