    I've bought 4 domains so far and I suspect I have them listed way too cheap.

    Hempstrument.com
    Hempstruments.com
    SusAlert.com
    ZeldaFandom.com

    I have them all listed under 500. Any thoughts on what I should have them listed for instead? Cause I feel like these are all gold.

    I think any offer you get you should take.

    Welcome to NP

    I think you will struggle to sell these for that price. You need to spend a few months reading this forum and learning about domain value. Dont go and register anymore names.

    Check out namebio.com to see what type of names sell.

    Good luck

    We all love our domains. I bought WhoSus.com not long ago. Unlikely to have any aftermarket value but I say if you like ‘em, keep ‘em 😀

    Really? They're all est value pretty high. I guess I just think they're good by comparison to what I see for sale all over the place. I sold wookfoot.com for like 350, I figured these could do better but i am still a beginner. Will do some due diligence.

    Ok. I registered one more. THIS one has to be a winner. Sensedep.com? Eh? Eh? Did I hit money? It's a short form of sensory deprivation and a hashtag on Twitter and Instagram and whatnot.

    You are falling into the usual new domainer trap of buying names without understanding the value of domains yet.

    Sensedep - not a single sale with those letters, not developed in a single extension? this is usually a bad sign.

    Don't buy any names yet, spend a few months reading the beginner section and watching namebio.com to see what names sell. Buy names from existing owners or expiring lists. DO NOT hand register available names. Every 2nd domainer comes thinking they will hand register names and sell them, check what has happened to those names a year or two later. Remember you will have all those renewal costs in 12 months time. Rather buy 1 decent name for $200 than hand reg 20 crap names that wont sell. Quality over Quantity

    There is no simple rule or manual to learn domain value, it comes with experience and reading.

    One other thing, do not use automated tools like Estibot, GD, Valuate etc, its like picking a number out a hat.

    Hope that helps

    You’re playing the lottery here, buddy. Nobody knows if this is a winner or not. If we did, we’d be picking names, not posting on forums.

    You’re welcome to keep buying, but your chances of selling don’t increase by much if you do because there are literally billions of possible combinations.

    If you want to increase your chances of winning, do the research. Find names that will be popular in 6 months, a year, 5 years and then hold on to them.

    I buy domains because I like them. Some are bought to be sold, others to be developed. My focus is on brandable domains, those that have no meaning but might make a good business name. I then submit them to brandable marketplaces like SquadHelp, Alter and BrandBucket for consideration (where they only publish the ones they like). Some will sell, most won’t. It’s a numbers game (with a bit of luck thrown in).

    Dot com domain names are cheap enough that anyone can own them. You can pick any random set of letters and you might get lucky at some point. But those that sell consistently work hard at their game, often spending a large amount of capital on popular, rare names (like one word .coms). They then actively call, email and solicit buyers who might be interested (and who can afford it).

    It’s hard work, but the rewards are there. There is no magic formula though.

    Good luck on your journey.
