A Guide to Domain Investing
Whether you are an experienced or novice domain investor, it is no news to you that unlike stocks and real estate, the value of domains will only appreciate in the upcoming years as businesses and marketing activities move to more internet-based models.

Below are suggestions you should consider when entering the world of domain investing, regardless of whether you are taking on a new career or just a hobby.

Become informed. Join forums like our and other industry forums such as DNJournal and NamePros. Attend conferences and read, read, read … before you plunge into your first purchase.

Follow your interests and expertise — Research domains about topics you like and have experience with and you will move faster up your learning curve.

Follow internet search trends by using keyword tools like Overture, Keyword Discovery or Wordtracker. On Afternic we also keep close track of our most popular search categories and share them with our members regularly.

Know the law about domain investing. Where to start? Read the 10 US Laws every Domainer needs to know. If you are outside the US, you should of course get intimately familiar with your country’s laws.

Start with a .com investment before you venture into country specific extensions, or .net, .biz, etc. Historically, the .coms have always outperformed the others in search rankings, and it appears that the trend will continue.

Use a domain registrar you trust. We recommend our trusted partner, but we strongly recommend that you do your research before you choose.

learn how domains are valued. You can do that by reading the popular industry publications, such as the DN Journal.
