First comes the research. In this stage of the game it is your goal to research the many variable aspects of domain buying. There are multiple ways to make money from domains.

Buying domains with the intent to resell is one of the biggest ways to turn a $6 investment into a $10,000 profit. In this category your goal is to purchase domain names which will have a mass market value based on there size, keywords, and marketability. One good example of this are the LLL.com domains. As a type in (“type in” refers to a name that would be directly typed into the address bar, not searched for) BAL.com might not get the most hits but as a a resale domain it is worth A LOT. So remember that while doing research ask yourself do I want to park domains or do I want to buy/sell domains?.

The other way to make money from domain names is to park them. In this aspect you look for different variables then you would for the selling market. When you park a domain you want to receive the most amount of traffic possible. Therefore your domains should be ones that are easy to spell, easy to remember, and something someone might “type in” to a URL bar. Most parked domains receive money when its name is typed into the URL. Therefore where mnoey.com might me not so good for a domain as a reseller it fits in well with domain parking as it could be a common mistype while trying to reach money.com
