    In December 2016, we brought you the first part of a brand new series in which we ask several domain industry experts to answer a single question. In this article, our second installment, we find out whether there really is a more profitable time of the year to be a domain investor.

    Domaining could be considered a seasonal business, with less activity in the summer months when decision makers traditionally take vacation time. However, is this something that our experts have noticed?

    We asked:

    What is typically your most profitable month of the year?

    I agree with those that say November. I made two bigger sales in November 2015 and November 2016. It's definitely a good luck month for me so far.

    February was my best month last year, but negotiations started around late November or early December.
