    It was developed and most likely had traffic. These types of portals, whether they are built on a .com or a ccTLD, can fetch a pretty penny at auctions due to traffic and existing links.

    dated 9 December 2017 I bought the onelinkpr.net domain for 12 usd. and within 1 month sold 222 usd this in my opinion is a very high price increase

    First question is why you wasted $12 on onelinkpr.net ? why? what was yoru motivation? Your plan was to sell iit for $220 in one year? I don`t see how this business model can be profitable.

    First if he registers 100 of those for $12 it can not be profitable. Its simple math.
    If you register that poor quaility it can not be profitable.

    To many, a domain flipping model is sustainable. E.g. buy at $regfee - $50 and resell at $xxx. This is how I started 18 years ago. Made mistakes, learned a lot from others, and while I no longer flip domains, I consider it part of the learning process.

    What about esmoke.tech it's available for registeration for less then $5 at namesilo. It's on the "net" and it's ".tech" you can also get eSmokeTech.com to go along with it :woot:

    Not to go off topic but to prove a point in trucking world there's a company called SWIFT and they are well known for hiring rookie drivers, they are self insured and they have the highest crash rate in over regulated trucking industry. I always wondered how they managed to stay in the business all these years. Here's what I've learned;

    When you have 5,000 trucks in the fleet. Let's say if the company made $50/day net profit off each truck, that's still $250k a day in the bank.

    BTW $50/day is under-exaggeration for trucking industry. It's more like $700/day net profit on an average payload of $1500 for around 500~1300 miles. Now try doing the math. :nailbiting:

    vape.net is backup on public auction now, 15 hours remaining with the current bid sitting at £2,810 and reserve not met.

    A reseller genuinely paid $30k for this and thought they would make money on it?

    He could have made if he had an edge like connections inside vape industry/media or to the Chinese manufacturers.

    Now trying to flip it inside Godaddy 7-day auction with reserve is as dead as ideas go.

    Ive never managed to sell anything through godaddy auction, they sell on namejet but anything i list directly on godaddy never gets any interest.

    Slightly off topic: I bought Vape.town not so long time ago.

    Ok, not a .net, but still the combo makes sense.
