Easiest way to search for expired domain names

Domain name selling has been around for some time. Though it’s not a get rich quick scheme or something you can expect that would give you a steady flow of income, if you’re lucky, you might just be able to hit gold.

Domain names are the address of the websites you visit. For example, the domain name of this site is: Pinoy-reviews.com. You can buy domain names for as low as $9.99 per year and if you happen to be lucky, you can sell it for around $200 to $150,000. Recently, the domain name cruises.co.uk was sold for $1.1 million.

The trick is to find REALLY good domain names that companies are willing to purchase. Of course, you have to take into consideration that if you happen to register the domain name of an already existing company or something similarly close to that name, there may be legal issues involved, but let’s not delve into that.

Some domain name sellers and brokers search for expired domains which they can buy. If you happen to be into the domain name selling game or you just want to have a really good domain name, you can use the search tool linked above. It’s really easy, just type in your desire keyword; say you want a domain name with the word “gadget” on it, just type it in the box, then choose your preferred filters. After that, you just paste the URL on your preferred RSS reader, e.g. MyYahoo, Google, Newsgator, etc.

Well, good luck on your hunt for the best domain!
