Build A Solid Domain Name Portfolio

Building a high-quality domain name portfolio can take months or years to accomplish. Buying a good domain name and selling it over time is a common way for domain investors to turn a profit. Unfortunately most good .com and .net names are already registered.

Expired Domain Names

Thousands of domain names expire every day. The reasons are different. Some owners forget to renew the domains, some just don't want them anymore or they move on to other projects.

You can look at the expired or deleted domain names every day through these web sites:

Every day, GoDaddy releases fresh aftermarket data for free. Check out the GoDaddy FTP server using an FTP client such as FileZilla or WinSCP.

  • ftp.godaddy.com (username: auctions) (leave the password field blank)

For most people these so called "Expired Domains" don't have any value. They just see a bunch of Domain Names someone else deleted and move on, but for the people who know about SEO or the value of good backlinks, Expired Domain Names are money just waiting to get picked up from the street. The only problem is to separate the good ones from the bad ones.

Domain Value Can Be Estimated

You can estimate the real value of a domain name by using online appraisal tools. However, checking each individually, can become a real troublesome task. If you want to perform multiple domain appraisals for long domain lists, you can use Vovsoft Bulk Domain Appraisal.

I have sooooooooo many domains. A few have have Moz Rank (one has 70 Moz Domain Rank). The rest are what I consider "elite, one-word domains" but they aren't .coms since those are all taken. BTW I love your tools. Thanks for sharing!
