At the end of last year, one of the goals I set for 2015 was to hand register more domain names. Unfortunately, I’ve slacked a bit in that area. I am still actively buying domain names in private and via auction, but I haven’t registered as many domain names as I had hoped. Obviously there is still time for that.
I thought I would share a selection of ten hand registered domain names. To me, these are akin to lottery tickets, and they should not be used as guidance for your registrations. I have no idea if anyone will want to pay a premium for these domain names, but I figured they were worth a shot.
As you can see, the only non-.com domain name on this list is Elliot.Link. I shared my rationale for registering .Link domain names in a previous blog post. Additionally, I am not really keen on registering “trend” domain names, although some people might argue that cryptography / cryptocurrency is trendy. I do think that these names have meaning now and will continue to have meaning going forward.
You’ll notice all of my recent hand registered names are at Uniregistry. The company has been very supportive of this website, and I want to give my business to people who support me. I also like the fact that privacy is free and registration costs are competitive.
10 Recent hand registered domain names:
- NewbornPhotoShoots.com – Top of mind
- NHMountains.com – I also own Sunapee.com and LakeWinnipesaukee.com
- KeelLaying.com – Read about it and thought it was a neat term
- Hamotzi.com – Jewish blessing
- EMEAConsultant.com – Many global companies have EMEA divisions
- EMEAAdvisor.com – EMEA stands for Europe, Middle East, and Asia.
- Elliot.link – See article about .Link
- MalwareMitigation.com – Lots of companies selling tools for this
- VanityHardware.com – Cabinet and drawer pulls and hardware
- CryptographyConsultant.com – Complicated topic that needs expert consultants
If you would like, you are welcome to share some of your recent hand registrations in the comment section.

I love this one cause it sounds great and ” Agribusiness ” is the largest industry in the world and a billion dollar business.
Another one is ; ” Ergonomics.Club “
Reg’d in the king extension:
I’m big on search stats. That said I registered
27,100 exact monthly searches and a CPC of $0.86.
I go for products and services that people actually search for according to Google. Here are some .com hand regs from earlier this week:

Sold $5k in the past 2months and having been domaining for 14months.
Hand registered domains below in the past 9months.

I find keeping up to date with what is trending really helps. SlideShare.net is also great source for information. There is potential for everyone to make domaining a success.
NewYork.gifts – nice.
Product Integrations dot com
I’m in the mood to bash nearly all the domains here, so I won’t. 😀 😀
The only ones that were interesting at all were some of the new TLD’s, ironically…
Thanks for what? And what kind of statement is this:
So let me see, you’re going post Wikapedia.net as one of your regs?
So let me get this straight – you are operating a site designed to make people think you are Wikipedia or part of Wikipedia, and placing a “Donate” button on it so that people who donate will very likely think they are donating to the real Wikipedia?
Is that not what gives “domainers” a bad name with a lot of people?
I dont know what to answer 🙁
It’s up for the buyer what to do with this domain.
I am not encouraging them to do that.
Archaeotourism or Archaeological tourism is a form of cultural tourism, which aims to promote public interest in archaeology and the conservation of historical sites. …
Quite a few this year as below:
HumbleLimpet.com (New strongest natural material)
SpectreCar.com (James Bond’s new car in Spectre!)
Also hand-registered only these new gtlds in 2014:
I only hand register New GTLD because there was 1 $ discount at Uniregistry :
Last Dropcatch wich available and I have developed :
New gtld registered recently
the names you registered are really bad
A total waste of money
NewYork.gifts was decent, and maybe one or a few of the other new TLD’s here, though way too expensive for reg fee. And this is coming from someone who still considers .com “king” by a mile for most domains, though definitely not all.
And see what I’m going to add to the bottom of this thread about .club vs. .web.
Better yet, go see it over in the new “Sunday thoughts…” thread here: https://www.domaininvesting.com/sunday-thoughts-updates-31/. I’m going to add it there.
Miss Terry-Do you like this one? dudu.com
Yes Dudu.com is decent and far better than anything Elliot registered
In fact it kinda describes Elliot’s hand registrations
You could work together
Put up a site and sell the Dudu.domains
Expire.com is doing it already but being first to market with a killer domain is way over rated
No shit, sherlock.
Dudu.com sold for $1 million in 2012: http://techcrunch.com/2012/01/05/and-the-first-1-million-domain-name-sale-of-2012-is-dudu-com/
Miss Terry, Indeed all domainers know that dudu.com is a very expensive name, but I think the owner in Whois (Alibek Issaev from Dudu Communications) will not agree to sell it publicly
Actually Miss Terry-I just wanted to see what your above nasty comments to someone were really worth re: do you have any idea what you’re talking about-the answer is obvious now. DUDU.com sold for over a $1 million Have a nice day.
Typo should have been wordsflashcards.com
I love it. What’s you price?
This thread had me bustin’ up. So funny all the way.
I can get it now why google is changing to the mobile-freindly protocol on April 21 ’cause it was soo difficult for me to get through this thread on my tablet
Heres a few I hand-regged over the last few of years (and another 300 plus)
Plus lots more if interested
