What Kinds of Domain Names Are You Buying?


A couple of years ago, at the suggestion of Scott Rosenbaum, I published an article asking people what types of domain names they are buying. This enabled some people to connect and discuss deals. Since it has been a while since I posed that question, I thought I would ask again (also at the suggestion of Scott).

I am still on the hunt for meaningful one word .com domain names. The names I buy should be known to pretty much anyone that speaks the English languages and they should immediately know what it means. Having a positive connotation is also important to me, although it is not a deal breaker. I especially like fruit names, color names, animal names, or pretty much any other type of exact match .com domain name that could be used as a brand. As you should know, I only invest in .com domain names. I am not interested in investing in non .coms no matter how good the keyword. That’s not my business model.

I invite you to share the types of domain names you are currently buying in the comment section. No need to be super specific though since I don’t want to turn this into a marketplace where people try to hawk their domain names. If you want people to be able to connect with you to offer their domain names, you are welcome to leave your contact information. Always do your due diligence before buying and use an escrow service!

If you have a meaningful one word .com domain name, get in touch. There’s nothing wrong with not having this type of name, but it is what I am looking to buy.

    I keep an eye out for medium to long-term trend domains like tech, energy, financial and crypto.
    You can sell two-word domains in these categories if you know what to look for.

    I own a bit of everything at this point nameselling.com/name-list.
    My Crypto domains are still my best sellers as of right now. Most Inquiries too.

    Focusing mostly on gambling domains. Occasionally buy from flippa or sedo otherwise expired domains with backlinks that seem to have traffic sources.

    I love organic keyword (preferably 1 word) .com and .org names. I’ll also take 2 words .com and .org names and 3 letters .com .org names. Search volume is important to me and you don’t get that with brandable domain names.

    I’ve bought a diverse selection of names over the last year. I believe the best way to show the type of names you are buying is to give an example list.

    Some are:
