When I think of the business of domain name investing, I think of domain investors as people who have made the most of virtual real estate opportunities. We are capitalists who make speculative investments in a form of asset that many people don’t know much about.
To people that are not involved in domain investing, the perception is significantly different. I want to share a comment made by someone on Spiceworks.com, an IT-industry website:
“Ever get a great idea for a website and find that some greedy ass already bought the domain just to wait for a person with the idea to come along??”
Obviously, everybody is entitled to their own opinion about domain investing (and domain parking) but it’s interesting to read something like that these days. You don’t hear people get upset about property or land investments, but many people dislike domain investors for speculatively investing in and parking their domain name assets.
How often do you get labeled a cybersquatter or worse when receiving an inquiry to sell one of your domain names?
Thanks to KAP from DBR for sharing this.
