    I don't think this claim can be made until you sell the name. As of now you just bought a name you like. I will say though that my highest sale was a handreg.

    I wanted to startup a business in Arizona where I help people with IT related work and I was very surprised that the name I wanted was simply available to hand reg, I was able to get ArizonaGeek dot c0m.

    It's definitely possible to still get an amazing name at the registrar without buying them from previous owners :)

    Nice post @smartwebby!

    That $10k sale is impressive. But you need 10-12 like it a year where I live, if you run a business in my country and able to afford shelter and food. Taxes are 60% here for everythingy you sell and then another 22% up to 65% for salary you take out from your biz. One reason why most get stuck with domaining as a hobby or part time and not as a full time profession.

    Not dead, but the overall average payoff is likely minimum wage.
    Most people overly discount the value of their time spent on this stuff.

    Just because an end user is willing to pay ten bucks for a free domain doesn’t mean that same name is worth a mint. That same end user might’ve passed up many better domains because he was unwilling or unable to pony up any money.

    So I wouldn’t necessarily be kicking myself over this one.

    Proof that hand regs are not dead comes from selling hand regged domain names. I know, because I've sold a few over last 12 months for $5k apiece. Your proof, is like saying I won the race because I entered the race. Still, I hope you do sell them; then you can call it proof :xf.embarrassed:

    Exactly... remember before crypto and blockchain hit the market? None of those names were taken - or even conceived. I hand regged a bitcoin related domain and flipped it for $499 within a few months and I still have a few other crypto domains. A few years back I hand regged a domain and sold it (unsolicited) within a few months for $2,250... (both were dot coms... I won't even go into all of the new TLD opportunities.)

    One thing to note while hand registering a domain is to check whether that domain was registered previously? Many domainers go through a pending delete list and wait and hope for a domain to drop completely.

    And, out of many looking to registered that domain name once it drops, only one becomes the lucky winner. Technically this is also called hand registering a domain name.

    In my view hand registering a domain which was never registered is bit risky from domain investing point of view, whereas registering a domain which had dropped completely comes with some hope. Since thousands of domains drop and becomes available everyday - it's likely that someone will be able to find a needle in the haystack.

    I think she explains that here:
    A name doesn't have to be immediately sold to justify it being a good hang-reg..there can be so much more to domains than dollars.

    @Jahe "I won the race because I entered the race" is not what the OP is saying at all..what she is saying is real racing is not dead, even though segways be all the rage..

    Plenty of gold to be mined out there in the hand-reg mines. Mine those names! Thanks for the share.

    It's Drop-catching, not Hand-Regding.
