In the domain name industry, we are very lucky to have such a wide variety of websites and resources to help us keep track of what is happening and to help us all profit from that. Fortunately, many of these resources are free to use. I wanted to share with you my 10 best free resources for domain name investors. These are all websites and services that I use daily. NamePros The NamePros platform (forums, news, blog, marketplace, etc.) is one of the best free resources you can have. As an investor, I feel that we're very lucky to have a central community space in which we can talk business, make new connections, and of course, make a few sales. The content on NamePros is also very educational: discussions and blog posts from a wide array of members often give beneficial hints and tips about various aspects of domain name investment. ExpiredDomains.net I personally spend over an hour every day on this website. The free service allows you to search through expired domain and aftermarket listings from the most popular marketplaces on the Internet. Customization filters mean that searching for a specific type of domain name is extremely easy. The entire system is extremely easy to use, and I have found the service to be very reliable. With a global Alexa ranking of just under 8,000, there seem to be plenty of people who agree with me. It's one of the finest free services I've used. DomainSherpa Michael Cyger (@DomainSherpa) has created an extremely valuable resource in DomainSherpa.com. The site, which has been running since 2010, includes hundreds of hours of interviews with domain investors, end users, developers, and SEO experts who all share their experiences within the domain industry. The videos and their content are always varied, and I believe that the videos on this website should be watched by everyone interested in becoming a better investor. The motivation and knowledge gained through the content is priceless. Domaining.com Some may consider Domaining.com (@DomainingCom) to be the nucleus of the domain industry. A free website from which you can stay up-to-date with the latest news from a variety of news outlets and blogs that cover industry events. I believe there is a small subscription fee to receive additional benefits, but the website itself is free to browse. DSAD Every morning without fail, @Domain Shane publishes his popular list of auction picks for the day. Shane is a seasoned investor who documents his journey on his blog for all to see, and I wish (for the sake of my bank account) that I had listened to his free advice a long time ago. The writing team he has assembled there also do an excellent job of reporting daily domain sales data, meaning this is a blog that I read several times a day. LinkedIn The popular business network is an excellent way to connect with fellow domain investors and service providers within the industry. Networking is one of the best ways of advancing in the industry, and LinkedIn gives you the perfect platform to start chatting to fellow domainers. Aside from individual profiles, there are also domain investment groups with thousands of members for you to join. Skype Since I began concentrating much of my energy into Chinese domaining, I've found Skype to be a vital tool for connecting with investors and selling domain names. Every morning I wake up to several messages from contacts around the World with new opportunities and new inquiries. Skype can also be a good way of connecting regularly with fellow domain investors to share ideas, acquisitions, and more. Domain Name Filter The free domain name filter has saved me from hours of manually extracting domain names from various drop lists and expired domain searches. This free website allows you to filter out domain names in a short amount of time. Whilst it is a little slow for large lists, it handles small/medium sized domain lists very well. NameBio To make decisions on investments and sales, you need to study data and trends to see what is selling and for what price. The most comprehensive domain name sales reporting website I've come across is NameBio. With a vast database of sales and simple filters, you'll be able to browse sales data efficiently and effectively. DNJournal DNJournal (@Duke) has been documenting the sales of domain names every week for over thirteen years. Independently verifying and publishing domain name sales has been an invaluable resource to the industry for both domain investors and end users.
