constructive Posted June 6, 2014 Share Posted June 6, 2014 Has anyone here invested in / speculated on domain names? The gold rush is over but I suspect there are still pockets of opportunity here and there. All 1 word and most 2 word generic .coms seem to be taken. But there might be opportunities in 3 word generic, or 2 word potential brand + generic category, or 2 word with a hyphen. Or you could buy higher value names at auction, or in negotiated transactions. Anything that rolls off the tongue easily, gets direct hits, gets google searches, or sounds monetizable. One problem is that you have to pay a yearly renewal fee while waiting for a strategic buyer to emerge (and hopefully pay you over 20x - the average domain name selling price is supposedly $2000). So it may make sense to develop basic websites in order to pick up ad revenue. I've got a list of a few names I like, haven't bought any yet.
