    The best part about the domaining industry is that you can actually speak to the top notch people here. People who are really good at domain name investment and flipping. And the best part is, they are ready to help you!

    One such guy is Abdul Basit. In one of the posts on his blog, he shares his acquisitions in 2016. This is a great guide to all those who want to learn what professionals are investing into..and the better part is why!
    @Doron Vermaat shares his acquisitions, sales and other stats as well, which is a great boost to everyone trying their hands into domaining.

    That is really a good initiative from their side.

    Here is the article:


    As I previously shared my January and February 2016 acquisitions together, today I wanted to show some more domains which I acquired in recent time. Just wanted to add that I hit the 1300 mark of domains under my belt.

    RIMG.com, JAYN.com, TIRC.com, ZSLI.com, ZRSI.com, ZAIC.com, JISB.com, GITZ.com, ACAW.com – Some of the 4L .com I bought recently. I am always looking for similar combinations.

    GutCheck.com – This domain was previously owned by Mike Berkens and sold to GoDaddy when he sold his big chunk of portfolio to them. I bought from GoDaddy with the help of Jamie Zoch. Thanks to him for finding the gem at reasonable price.

    Komex.com, Vican.com, Primarius.com, CityFirst.com – I love such brandable domains which can be developed into anything. The more possibilities, the more bigger reward.

    Klinkenberg.com, TomWhite.com, Ayushi.com – Difficult not to list person names when sharing recent acquisitions.

    TheCow.com – Very aged domain (1996). Although age doesn’t matter when I buy domain but I am always fond of “the” domains.

    BioHair.com – Sensible health related domains always pay off well and it’s one of them.

    FairDeal.com – Deal domains always do well and this domain can turn out to be one of the biggest shopping/deals portal.

    POM.org, WIL.org – Since I last mentioned of buying LLL.org domains, the prices have gone a bit high. I am creating competition but that’s okay as far as I am bringing awareness and sharing what I think is right to buy in current market.

    LaCity.com – The City or Los Angeles City or anything else city as well.

    SignatureRealty.com – Authorititive name for any real estate agency/firm.

    To summarize things in short, I look for domains where I can see lot of potential and possibilities for endusers to develop my domain into anything they like to. The more restricted, the less chance of selling and getting good price.

    Agreed... this is more like "look what I picked up at auctions" rather than 'acquisitions'.

    Can anyone say what is so special about GutCheck.com that Godaddy bought the domain?

    @Arpit131
    Many thanks for your kind words.

    @ikhub
    GoDaddy actually bought bulk portfolio from Michael Berkens and this domain was one of them in it.

    I like FairDeal.com and CityFirst.com - Good potential to sell to end users.
