I am almost always looking to buy domain names in the aftermarket. I send offers and inquiries daily, and I participate in domain auctions on a variety of auction platforms on a daily basis.
Scott Rosenbaum suggested that I publish an article asking people to share what types of domain names they are buying these days, and I think that is a good idea. This will give me and other readers the opportunity to see what types of domain names other people are buying right now.
Here are four types of domain names I am always looking to buy:
I am always on the lookout for great one word .com domain names. My company owns Travels.com, Stallion.com, Lilac.com, and Embrace.com to give a few examples of the quality of domain names I like.
I also occasionally buy great one word geographic domain names that can either be used for a city/town website or a travel destination website. I may not be developing new properties right now, but I buy these names as investments. Some examples include Milford.com, Sunapee.com, Truro.com, and LakeWinnipesaukee.com.
Three letter .com domain names are always of interest at the right price. There are many variables I consider when evaluating a LLL.com domain name.
Finally, I still buy meaningful two word .com domain names. The price has to be great, and there would need to be a good reason for me to buy them. If someone needs to explain the meaning of a particular domain name, it would not be of interest to me. Some recent buys for me include NeckSurgeon.com, AdministrativeStaff.com, CrisisNegotiation.com, and StrawberryPicking.com. Again, I am all over the map with these types of domain names but they need to be meaningful and priced well.
So there you have several examples of the types of domain names I am currently buying. I invite you to share the types of domain names you are buying.
