Is domaining dead?

Back in the day domaining was a great way to turn a profit. Find an expired domain, register it, sell it on warrior forums or reddit to the highest bidder – done!

But times have changed and you can’t just do that any more. I’ve noticed that domaining seems to be back in fashion though, with a number of different sites popping up in recent years.

  • Domainz.io – This is a subscription service that monitors expired domains that have you dropped. You get the expired domain for the $10 reg fee
  • topfive.domains – This is a unique take where users list their top 5 domain names they own and buyers can bid on them. Seems a little bit abandoned but a nice idea!

Have you got an experience domaining? Is it still a thing? Answers in the comments.
