Hunting for Gems at SnapNames

2

Even though it can be a lot of work to search through names to order at Snapnames, it is definitely worth the effort. I recently won an auction for VideoCameraWorld.com for about $110. I was only bidding against one other person, so apparently this name either slipped by everyone else and I found a gem, or other people don’t think this name is as valuable as I do. Some recent –Wold.com sales as report by DNSalePrice.com include:

PerfectWorld.com – $30,000
NudeWorld.com – $23,530
DesignerWorld.com – $21,000
WineWorld.com – $20,000

I know VideoCameraWorld.com isn’t worth as much as those gems, but I believe it is worth much more than $110. Keep on looking through Snapnames – its worth the effort! This is one of the most fun aspects of the domain investment industry.

    How do you find a name like VideoCameraWorld.com? Do you use Snapnames’ Advanced Search feature to search for dot coms containing words like camera, video, or world, then sift through the results?

    That’s how I found this one. I have a bunch of keywords I use – some in the beginning of a domain name and some at the end. -World.com, -Shop.com, Cheap-.com are some of the strings I use. Almost all of the “good” ones are taken, so the best bet is to try and buy expiring names. I think I got lucky with this one.

    Elliot,

    I have discovered that that Netsol and Snapnames have NOT been allowing expiring domains to actually delete before “acquiring” and auctioning them. I wrote about my experience at http://msdomainer.blogspot.com/2007/10/is-domain-auction-aftermarket-corrupt.html

    I’m hoping that NameJet does a better of this.
