Buying One Word .coms

I am currently looking to buy up to 5 one word .com domain names. as an investment. I am almost always in the market to buy great one word .coms, and I am looking to increase my holdings right now. I have several very specific and non-negotiable requirements for domain names:

  • American English word found on
  • .com
  • At least 50 other TLDs are registered in that exact keyword (for instance, there are 247 TLDs registered with the “Travels” keyword).
  • Has not been listed with a domain broker, domain auction, or on a domain forum in at least 12 months
  • Price up to $40,000/each, but end user value into the 6 figures. Possible the budget is higher for the right name(s).
  • Does not end in the following: -ing, -ed, -ly, -ingly….etc

Ideally, the keyword will have a positive or neutral meaning, but that is not a requirement. I am looking for words that could be used as brands.

If you have something that does not meet the above requirements, please do not send them to me. They may have value, but I am looking to add one word .coms to my portfolio and I won’t reply if they don’t meet the clear requirements.

Contact information for submitting domain names is here.

  1. As I said many times, all it takes is money…just to buy the domains you want.
    It does not take any mental creativity, brainpower, mental prowess, or any physical strength, just MONEY.

    I think you are gambling your kids’ education college future in investing these domains.
    If you had invested in Amazon msf apple and Tesla stocks 5 yrs ago like I did, you are ahead of the game.
    Owning one word domains …you might face unforeseen perils,uncertainties,..
    You don’t know what going to happen to the domain industry down the road..
