Are you a LLLL.com speculator a .mobi supporter, a .tv’er? Do you invest in ccTLD’s, IDN’s and or geo domains? Every ‘domainer’ has his/her favorite domain niches that they are most comfortable investing and trading in. If you are having trouble following this post refer to the domainers glossary. My most active niches are below in order:
1. Two word .com /.nets
2. One and two word gTLD and ccTLD
3. Short domains .com, net, org
4. Poker domains .com, net, org, us
My portfolio is usually hovering between 100-200 domains so I don’t invest heavily in any particular niche. I would certainly prefer to be trading premium one word .coms, LLL.com and other big ticket domains. I had the opportunity back in 2001 when I started dabbling in domain names but I was not focused properly on which types of names to invest in. Now, eight years later (seven of which I spent very little time domaining) I invest a lot of time buying, flipping and collecting domain names. When I buy a name it usually falls into one of the categories listed above.
The last two years I have been collecting domains in a few different niches so I don’t look back in eight years again and want to kick myself in the butt! I am always looking for a good domain name that matches well with a niche that I may not have a domain in yet.
So, what niche do you like to buy, sell and trade in?
