    I thought I would do this post to help fellow newbies, and hopefully to inspire new domainers. Any professionals care to share ?

    Tell us:

    1. When did you start Domain buying
    2. How long till your first sale
    3. How long did it take you to make a profit.
    4. What got you into domaining
    5. What's your favourite sale

    Join in for a bit of fun, would be good to hear.

    Thanks :)

    1. When did you start Domain buying - When I was 13 years old kid (with mom's PayPal), now I'm 25.
    2. How long till your first sale - First domain sold when I was 15 years, the domain was WebHost.rs (my attempt to host websites with reseller package and counter strike servers to other kids). A company from Serbia contacted me, and they paid me with cash per post lol. :D
    3. How long did it take you to make a profit - 2 years :P

    4. What got you into domaining - Obsession for perfect domain name for my gaming community (Counter Strike and Half Life), then obsession to have cool MSN address when you could make one with your own domain. So everyone at school had @windowslive.com or @hotmail.com, I had [email protected] :D

    Here are some nostalgic screenshots from my old HDD.
    1. Screenshot with my custom MSN address ([email protected])
    2. Domains of me and my "clients", screenshot from 1and1.com (now IONOS). All are expired/deleted.

    Www.Namepros.com has taught me a lot and at the beginning, I listened to no one.

    bad idea

    I wasted couple grand on bad domains that are deadwood

    I still have loads of silly domains, but my portfolio is getting more respectable, slowly.

    Buy from other people if you’re starting.

    2.5k on a 6k domain you got them down to, is better than 2.5 k on hand registered domains or average domains.

    Start with 10k and buy 2 5k domains that have a price tag of 10k and a valuation from EstiBot of 10k (traffic)

    Make sure those 5k domains have traffic because that’s where the money is

    Brandable too

    If no traffic, needs to be Brandable or a good two word like PrivateChef.com, which is for sale for 10k at Media Options

    Offer 2.5 the. Stay firm on 5k. If you don’t get it move on.

    You want a bargain to start a portfolio
