Very Cool! Congrats!
Its best to have another job even if domaining is your main job. Its just as a form of insurance.
in my opinion I think one can make a living on domaining, only as your secondary job
I dont want to brag. But I can say I can afford to buy coffee from Dunkin Donuts Every day!
Vague statement a hut in Thailand, does not cost as much as a home in Switzerland.
On this island there are huts as well ad multi million dollar villas. For example, The Beckham family have a house here. And this single property costs more than 5 million USD (there are even more expensive ones here):
So, what is the price of my house? I will not tell, but it has an indoor pool.
But ok, to be fair, compared to the estate in the link above, our house might be considered a ”hut”
At least a few the same threads exist... so I have nothing to add.
And Yes - I live from domaining...
We have sh*t loads of these types of threads, but sifting through them is a f*cking tedious process.
Congrats on your success, keep it rolling!!
No. I don't make a living by selling domains, only professional domain investors do.
Nope! It's not easier. Most of the countries (3rd world countries) you're referring to don't even have round-the-clock electricity, basic amenities, access to internet expensive or limited.
Most things you take for granted in Europe and USA they still have to struggle for in order to survive.
Let's take each country as a Brand. All things being equal, which brand will you, as a buyer, prefer to do business with: European, USA or 3rd world?
Lastly, I don't think you'll ever agree to change places with a domainer in any of the so-called 3rd world countries
I dont know where you live, but in Spain I need at least 1000 euro to just pay where to live, food and pay electricity.
Dont compare it with countries where you live in luxuary with just 500$ monthly.
Depends on what you call "making a living"
100k to some is making a living but to others is the cost of a vacation.
The common conception that it's so cheap to live in a so-called "3rd world country" is rather funny in my opinion. Just because you move to a country with a larger percentage of "poor" people, doesn't mean that you need to live from the cheapest local food, drink rice beer and live in a dirty shed.
Domaining cannot give me enough income to survive in Vancouver with a family. Canada is a hungry country...
It’s a side hobby. If I sell a name then happy days if not then no problem.
I have my salary to look after my wife and son. Domaining is for fun.
If all else fails flippingfries.com is available where you can master your second trade.
Yes, I do
It's true, a lot of stuff is more expensive because it has to be imported.
If you want to live comfortably, or to Western standards, living in a Third world country is not so cheap.
High-speed, reliable Internet is not cheap or available everywhere. In some countries, the electricity runs a few hours a day.
As said above, some of the things we take for granted are not affordable to everyone.
Yes, a german car (Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche) is 2-3 times more expensive where I live, than in most EU countries. If I want some salami, cheese and a bottle of decent red wine for the weekend, I can expect to pay twice as much as in EU or the US. And so on...
But sure, local groceries and foods, go to the movies, labor, hotel accommodation, small motorbikes etc, it’s all pretty cheap here.
I think there are very few who live just selling domains. I am sure they have some other profession as well to earn their revenues.
You can buy drop domains
Not everyone. Personally, I think domaining is a much more effective way to make money than having a low salary job. But you have to know what you are doing and you have to work a lot. Maybe even 40 hours weeks, just as any other job out there.
Sitting and hand reg a few names, now and then, is not professional domaining, it’s a hobby.
I regularly meet the US buyers who can't pay even ~$500 for domain...
And not just selling...
You can pay for your electricity even from parking revenue...
Just as example: ~1K visits daily x ~$10 avg. RPM (ZeroClick) = ~$300 monthly.
Are there still names with that much traffic?
Separate names with a comma.
