    I've been hand registering domains for about a year now, and like anything else in life, practice makes for improvement. Recently I've been accumulating domains for the pot industry to include names that represent marijuana, cannabis, hemp, weed, etc. While most of the real good names are gone, one of my strategies is to add high value word to a domain you might like to own. For example, the names Cannabiz.com and HempOil.com were sold, but I was able to add the high value word "express" to each of these names in order to purchase them. So I'm the new prowd owner of CannabizExpress.com and HempOilExpress.com.

    This is an example of just one of my strategies, and I'm willing to share more if there's interest. Anyone else have a strategy?

    Hey Rich!

    How are you identifying/researching your high value keywords?

    I think the strategy is sound if you're able to get solid evidence that the keywords selected are both:
    • Popular among domain buyers
    • Popular in business names within the industry
    I like "Express" very much as a brand-worthy keyword in general, but I worry that using it as a third word in a domain name dilutes the value quite a bit. Definitely solid if it can be paired with another strong keyword to form a good two-word brand, though.

    To start with just because something is registered doesn't mean it is worth adding more terms just to register a worse version.

    The more words you add to a domain the more diluted the value becomes, especially when it is more than one concept. You can have multi word domains are still one concept for instance LasVegasRealEstate.com. That is a 4 word domain but it is as short as that concept can be.

    When you take a domain like HempOil.com. It clearly has good value, but as soon as you add an extra word the value loss is exponential.

    These type of domains might be fine to use as an end user, but there are so many beginning and ending words you can use with it that it is hard to see many buyers paying a premium. There are far too many alternatives.

    Thanks Joe....in the case of "Express" GD identifies it as a popular key word, and it's actually a nTLD extension that's recognized as a high value word. I own weightloss.express for example, and like you I like it very much. As for these domains being three words vs. two, trust me, if I could own CannaExpess or HempExpress for $8 a piece I would😁. Also, "Express" denotes "delivery" like Federal Express and who wouldn't want their cannabis or hemp oil delivered via Express? Oh, just one more thing, the second words in both my domains, "biz and oil" are also key valuable words. Just key my domains into GD's valuation tool to see what I mean . Thanks again Joe!

    I needn't argue with you Brad, but I'm totally aware that you would find fault with any domain I might hand register.That said, you only make me stronger, smarter and better😁

    Love the notion of considering the "concept" of the domain rather than looking strictly at the domain length. I think I've understood that general logic for a while, but perhaps not in the conscious and succinct way you described.

    Generally, my strategy is to not hand reg because they are drawn from a cesspool.

    I think some here on NP have Compulsive Hand Reg Disorder (CHRD). They could use support and help to break the habit.

    It's no different to hoarding something of no value to anyone else, for example Pringle cans.

    I probably register 1-5 a year. My last was, BuyABetter.com

    I reckon slogans and expressions might be a decent area in the cesspool with slightly cleaner water.

    Yes, Stop.
    Just Don't do it.

    These peers of ours here are here to help you out. Please listen to them all. They have better things to do with their time, then to help someone who refuses to listen.

    Adding more words to multiple word hand reg domains is throwing money away. It's just ridiculous..
    Adding a 3rd word to a 2-worder already...Express, World, Kingdom, Network, Online. May as well throw an e on the front of your keywords, throw an i in front. Add an e with a hyphen, an i with a hyphen. It is just never ending. Save your $$$.

    Seriously, Try real hard to sell any of the hand reg's you have regged already.
    This will be your BEST lesson!

    Until you finally prove to yourself that they are worthless, thats when you will finally save yourself some money.

    Until then, listen to these fine peers of ours who have proven they know what they are doing in domaining already. If you're too hard headed to listen to anyone here then please stop asking for help you refuse to listen to.

    Obviously this is just opinion and conjecture. With very few exceptions, most ALL domains were and still are hand registered.

    No.

    I want to hear how people make money in domaining. Thats all domainers want to hear.
    I hope you can make money in domaining and share that story with us one day.

    At this point, I am a firm believer you just need lots of attention and don't care about domaining at all.

    Prove me wrong.

    I'm already making money and intend to make whole lot more. I've offered to you and your peers to reach out to me personally to learn how, but none have. It speaks volumes!

    Since you brought that up.

    You've posted you've sold 0 domains. 0.

    Then posted you sold 4 and posted the names. Based on your posts, that was 4 domains at the beginning for $2,500 each to investors/friends. I'm guessing they gave you 10K to invest in new gtlds/other stuff in exchange. So you've been doing this for about a year, with no sales to your name. You posted about some booth/golf tournament, what happened with that? This was going to be you showing everybody some of your strategy, I was interested in it to see how it would work. But as the date got closer, all of a sudden you had a wedding to go to. The booth was for 4 days. So how many golf domains did you sell?

    I'm further guessing your investors actually want to see a return, that's why you push it with this spamming and other things that have resulted in 3 temp bans so far.

    No one Brad? You might want to ask my wife and equity partners🏌
    Btw, ever seen the symbol "Rx" Brad? Do you know what it stands for? While I already owned about a dozen healthcare domains using the symbol Rx, when I realized the growing medical use for marijuana/cannabis/hemp etc., I was able to hand Reg several short domains using Rx for this fast budding industry. As an FYI, each of the domains I was able to hand Reg for $8 appraises for $1,100 to $1,700. I have other strategies that have proven to discover/uncover good domains, but they're not in your wheelhouse.

    In the fantastic world of domaining, you find sellable (this is the key) names at a fraction of the possible asking price and you spend loads of time doing that. Then you sell a fraction of them at a crazy multiple of what you acquired them for, and purchase more of the same potential, then repeat the very same cycle.

    It takes loads of (mostly expensively acquired) skill and loads of time.

    Adding a premium modifier keyword to 2 keyword names in dotcom existance is not a strategy for me.
