With Domain investing, you can choose short term or long-term investment. In this article, we will be discussing long term domain investment for higher profits.

The Concept

Domain names are hot commodities in today’s tech-centric world. The $16 million sale of ‘insure.com’ to Quinstreet in 2009 may have set the world record, but even lengthier domain names are routinely sold for hundreds of dollars every day. The result is a unique opportunity for investors to invest in domain names that can be sold for a profit in the future.

The concept of long-term domain investing is to purchase a valuable domain name for a low price and sell it for higher price years to come. Most domain investors purchase multiple domains for as little as $15 and sell them for as high as $100,000 or even millions depending on many factors.

Buying Premium Domains and Reselling It

Premium domains are valuable, brandable domain names. There are websites that search through thousands of domains to find premium domain names, they register these domains and sell them to investors like you for a much higher price.

Instead of the average $15 to $20 one domain could go for, you pay anywhere from $500 to $3500 for a single domain. The advantages of purchasing premium domains from these companies are that the domains are guaranteed to make you profit and it saves you time from searching for your own premium domain.

Purchasing a $2000 domain from a website like hugedomains.com in 3 -5 years, the domain could be worth 2x – 10x the price you bought it.

Just like other investments, there are many risks. Every domain investor should carefully consider certain things before buying and selling. The three largest risks are legality, liquidity, and subjectivity. There are also a ton of other factors ranging from misleading appraisals to faulty escrow payments.
