    Most good names are taken. The leftovers are not so great. Maybe only new technologies are ok

    hand regs really work if your 0.1% ahead of the 99.9% catch-up curve.

    99% of good names are taken. Nothing wrong to handregister, but you not going to get anything great.

    A handreg is a bit like giving yourself a hand job. If it ever leads to more than instant gratification then someone else is more of jerk off than you.

    Disclosure, I do handreg once in a while.

    The key to hand registrations is to be on top of current news, technology and developments and also have a reasonable understanding of those fields so you can pick a winner when it presents itself as a viable investment.

    It's not rocket science ;)

    You want the truth. I have a file of 300 names available. When I look at names here in some section, I see that they are poor compared to the names I have in this file. Most of them are available for registration.

    You would think its rocket science if you take into consideration the amount of garbage domains that are peddled here on a daily basis. I especially like the threads that last for 3 months and above with no takers and still a daily bump 🤦‍♂️

    Some names may be garbage, while some better names have prices set too high for resale here to domainers (I'm guilty of that). Each to his own I guess.

    It's interesting that every now and then it is reported here that a weird name has sold for a crazily high price, but then someone figures it out and the penny drops.

    I hand reg most of my domain names and if you follow technology closely you will see that some terms did not exist ten, or even five years ago. Some tech innovations are emerging as you are reading this! If you do your research well and triple check the spelling, you can uncover gems. I did, continue doing so, and it has paid well... A savvy buyer puts his or her ego aside and makes a respectable offer for a domain name that defines an emerging category, no matter when the name was registered.

    I wholeheartedly agree, but I don't think that speculating on emerging trend names is a game for those without a good grasp of the english language. It's important to get grammar and phraseology correct - the most common mistakes I see are singular vs plural or words ordered incorrectly.

    True, people who are native speakers have a distinct advantage for coming up with the right words and/or phrases over those for whom English is a second language. Still, just checking how many times each word or phrase appears in search engines can help narrow the focus and eliminate wrong choices. It is not for everyone but being a wordsmith is an acquired skill. Just needs concentration, discipline and a refined filtering system that evolves over time.

    Don't feel bad... That is very common. Just search online for 'ATM machine' and there are 1000's of listings, even from the manufacturers and sellers of the machines. 🤓
