    What is the first indicator to google or a customer of a website's relevance to a geographic region? Domain name extension. Which is why co.uk is the best extension to register for a U.K. business imo. Which is why I take scant notice of .com other than for brand protection.

    Anything is possible, just not likely.

    The more money in something, and the larger pool of buyers = the higher odds of making sales.

    Can (1) person make consistent sales with an extension like .XYZ? It seems like it.
    That is more of an exception to the rule.

    I sell net/org/us and other extensions, but .COM is where the real money and demand is.

    It is rare people have success in other extensions without starting with .COM.

    Selling here on NamePros. This site is a bunch of domainers looking for wholesale prices. The real money is selling direct to the end user.

    To me, this site is for entertainment purposes only.

    NP is a vehicle for domainers to interact. It is only as good as the members who participate and how they do so. It is a challenge to moderate such a large forum. So I sympathize. It is not perfect but I think the mods are doing a good job. Any domainer anywhere is going to look for wholesale price. Why would you expect anything else? You are stating the obvious fact, real money is to sell to the end user.

    Don't listen to someone who called themselves to be a domain expert/Pro or a domain Investor.

    You're too late to make money in this market. You should have started buying domains in the 90s.

    Are you making this statement or are you considering this statement as "the worst recommendation" ?

    All good .COMs are taken.

    Also, COM is dying and will be dead in a few years.

    Get something else.

    Are you sure about that? There seems to be quite a lot of reported hand registered sales on this forum.

    Eventually yes but why 2 years? Or are you being figurative meaning within 10 years? If so - agree.

    Agree. Local c.c.T.L.D. makes sense and therefore cents.

    There's a part of each and every day that I fantasize about having being an early 9teez .com adopter and registering 50 single English word .com names and therefore being ridiculously rich beyond common sense.

    Not quite mate. Good advice and bad advice is still essentially advice.

    "Never price your domains"

    "Hand Regging is not domain investing"

    "If a domain isn't getting whois lookups its probably trash"

    "If a domain is getting bids it must have valuable"

    "Outbound is spam"

    "Your domain is only worth what someone is wiling to pay for it" 🤮🤮🤮

    "Never hand register"

    "Only domain in fields you have experience in"

    "You should always report your sales if there is no NDA"

    "If you aren't willing to tell which domain you sold you must be lying"

    1. ______P*rn.com
    2. ______P*rno.com
    3. ______S*x.com
    4. ______Casino.com
    5. ______Poker.com
    6. ______Slots.com"

    I basically use this site to chat about domains and keep learning. I've sold a domain here and bought one but this isn't the best place to move inventory.
