Let's get started now!


What Are Domain Names?

Before anything else, let's get to know the main thing about this guide, domain names.

What are domain names?

They are basically the addresses of the websites you type on your browser.

For example, in this page, the domain name is, www.fulltimehomebusiness.com.

IP address

The computers we have today, use IP addresses. You are probably familiar with this term.

They are very important because computers use them to connect and communicate with each other.

However, it is a bit difficult for us to remember IP addresses because these are composed of a series of numbers.

And that's when domain names were created. They are used to identify addresses on the internet.

To better identify what domain names are, let's take https://www.thisistheexample.com.ph.

  • Protocol (https://)
  • Domain (www.thisistheexample.com.ph)
    1. Subddomain (www)
    2. Domain name (thisistheexample.com.ph)
      1. Top Level Domain (com)
      2. Second Level Domain (ph)
  • Most of the time, top level domains are used as a suffix to represent which one does the domain belong to.

    Some of these are:

    • com- commercial businesses; most common TLD
    • gov- U.S. government agencies
    • edu- Educational institutions such as universities
    • org- Organizations (mostly nonprofit)
    • mil- Military
    • net- Network organizations

    And usually, the second level domains specify the country. The one in the example uses ph which is for the Philippines.


    There's more to domain names than meets the eye.

    If we use an analogy to domain names, then they are like real estate. They are the land or property in the world wide web.

    That's is why we can earn money with them through buying and selling domain names.

    How Does It Work?

    Like I told you above, domain names are like real estate.

    So how to make money buying and selling domain names?

    It is pretty simple.

    You buy domain names from a domain registrar, at a reasonable price.

    After that, there are certain websites where you can sell your domain names at a much larger price of your choice!

    Enough selling! Try out this better way of earning money online!

    Truths About Domain Flipping

    Before going to the step-by-step process, you should know these truths about buying and selling domain names.

    You will not get lots of money overnight

    Well, you probably heard a lot of motivational stories about how a person became a millionaire with the "web real estate", domain names.

    Well, I got to tell you, you will not become rich overnight.

    Those people worked for a long time, buying and selling domain names to reach that status.

    In fact, there are only a few domain names out there that can make you earn a six-figure money.

    However, if you do exert time and effort in this business, then your chances to become richer will be higher.

    Domain Buy-and-Sell is an active process

    Buying and selling domain names is NOT a passive process but an active one.

    You will not earn money with it if you don't work for it.

    That's why you have to invest your time and effort on it. Look for the best domain names to buy then look for the best buyers.

    It requires you to be active to earn good profits.

    In fact, I found out that most domain flipping experts consider the domain name you just bought as a "hot property".

    That means that you have to do a lot of things to maximize the opportunities you can get. You have to pick the best time to sell it.

    Most of the professionals even require the help of people with great marketing expertise, also research and networking skills.

    There are a lot of good domain names

    NEVER think that all good domain names are already taken.

    As of today, there are millions of domain names for sale in the market.

    With that kind of number, do you think all good domain names are taken?

    I don't think so.

    Also, you can always incorporate two or three keywords to your domains.

    .COMS will not always be the best choice

    You are probably thinking that.coms are the best choice since you always encounter it.

    Also most of you misunderstand that good .com domains are difficult to find because they are expensive in the marketplace.

    Well, truth is you can alwasy find .com domains at affordable price.


    You have to discover them at different marketplaces.


    To reassure you, yes, you can make money with buying and selling domain names.

    It may require a lot of skills and expertise and also time and effort, but don't worry.

    All of those will produce a very nice fruit.

  • Flipping Domain Names is one of the most profitable online business ventures you could take upon. The margins are infinite you could earn from around a couple of bucks up to tens and thousands of dollars if you do the job right.I have been thinking of doing this since I have some capital to start off with because of the allowance I was given to, hopefully, I could acquire more ways to make money so that I may live independently and live with freedom on my back.Online business, after all, is something very portable, lucrative and easier than having a brick and mortar business that you need to manage every time. Great informative article about domain name flipping.I think I will be doing this in the near future.

    • Hello Rizza! Thank you for reading my article. I wish you good luck on your domain flipping journey. Research and learn more about it before starting.

  • Hi AdrianneThis is a really interesting topic that you have covered here about flipping domains, it’s definitely an area of making money online that you don’t hear too much about. I do have a couple of questions, when starting out how many domain names would you consider to make up a good portfolio and what is the minimum budget you would recommend when getting into this to have the best chance of success.Thanks again. 

    • Hello, Dominic! You are absolutely right. Domain flipping is not something you always hear everyday. It can be so profitable, but a bit challenging to the new ones. When you are starting out, I recommend that you work on ONE domain only, first. Get to know the process and work on it. There are cheap domains out there that sell around $10 to $50. And you can make a hundred or even a thousand-dollar profit from them. I recommend having $10 to $50, when you are still starting.

  • I actually managed to sell a domain name on Sedo about four years ago now. It had been housing a health blog I was working on, but things didn’t turn out so profitably with it, so I was left with the domain. I think it went for just over $100 in the end, which is a great return due to it only costing about $11 to first register it. Shows how simple the whole process can be – it wasn’t even that clever a name! 

    • Hello, Chris! $11 to $100? That’s already great! With more management and grooming, your domains would earn you a lot more than that, my friend.
