    As a beginner I'm reading a lot from seasoned domainers who are generally of the opinion (presumably from experience) that hand regging lots of domains has lead to lots of wasted money! It made me wonder, what about the beauties where you made a ton from a hand reg? So what s your biggest return on hand reg domain? What was the domain? How long did you hold it and how much did it cost you to hold. Maybe you turned a very quick reasonable profit or maybe you held it for years and eventually the pay off was so good it gave you all your money back and plenty of profit! I'd love to hear a few stories of your biggest hand reg wins

    Hello. Welcome to community. I am in domaining for 3 years, and for now, I cannot understand what is "hand reg".

    If I know there is a name pizza.delivery, it becomes free, and I register it, it's hand reg or not hand reg?

    I think all my regs are "hand regs", because I don't know other regs...

    Biggest profit about $500.

    Thanks generic, nice profit on that! In so far as I understand it hand reg refers to creating a name and regging it rather than buying an existing or expiring domain but the more experienced will set me straight I am sure!

    Is such way it looks clear...

    But buying premium registry name(priced as premium by registry) is also hand reg then.

    Hand reg is when you purchase a domain from a registrar for a reg-fee. like going to Godaddy, searching a domain and seeing it's available and purchasing. this is hand-reg, no matter how old the domain is.
    Anything else isn't a hand -reg.

    Wow! Great returns! Congrats!

    Just out of interest do you tend to outbound your hand reg now or still wait for inbounds?

    Square//cc - registered for $12 or so in 2004. Sold earlier this year for $10,000.
    Have to say I’m pretty happy with this investment.

    Y/u/u/s/h on .com hand registered and sold 12 months later for $850. Should have sold it for more.

    Within the last 3 months, I have hand registered some of the finest domains in my portfolio, some of them priced for high xx,xxx.

    Hand registration is still alive and kicking, provided you're good at it.
