Here are some cases where new TLD registrants flipped new domains for a nice return.It’s easy to come out and say new TLDs are a waste of time for domain name investors and that you won’t make any money with them. You can point to high initial prices and registry premiums to suggest that domainers are being cut out of the action.
The reality is that some people are making good money flipping new TLDs.
I want to be careful to not suggest that flipping new TLDs is easy money. After all, anyone can easily cherry pick sales from weekly reports or DNJournal to show that some people are cashing in on any type of domain name.
That said, I think it’s worth bringing some of these domain resales to attention to show that there are opportunities.
I’ve reviewed a number of new TLD sales from Sedo and DNJournal and verified they were indeed resales (not registrar auctions or direct registry sales) using historical whois records. Click here to see the sales…
