The domain name is one of the most important part of a website, registering a cool domain name is not easy today, but if you pay attention to these domain names you like, you still have many chances.
When I begin to develop and run websites, almost all of the domain names I like have been registered, and the owner of them ask for quite a high price which I can’t afford.
For instance, the domain name “Resizeimage.com” seems pretty general, however, if you contact the owner of it, you’ll be asked for $70,000 dollars.
In such cases, it’s impossible to buy it, but there’re still many other domain extensions available, such as Resizeimage.net.
To check the current owner of domain names, you can access these sites that called “whois lookup” services, such as whois.domaintools.com, www.who.is, www.namecheap.com/domains/whois.aspx, www.whois.net
To register domain names, you can access namecheap.com, godaddy.com, name.com, namesilo.com, etc.
To buy or sell domain names, you can visit sedo.com, namejet.com, flippa.com, afternic.com, etc.
To register expired domain names, expireddomains.net is a place you should not miss, you won’t spend additional dollars to get a domain. Another place is auctions.godaddy.com , the price on godaddy auctions is pretty low comparing to sedo.com.
When registering a domain name, it’s recommended that you purchase the whois guard for it at the same time, otherwise you may receive several spam emails every day. You can register domain names with discount price by applying coupon codes to them, if you don’t have a coupon code, you can search for them easily on the Web with keywords like “namecheap promo code”, “godaddy .net renewal coupon”, etc.
If you don’t wish to lose your domain names, you should turn on two step authentication with the account at your domain name registrar, and don’t tell others the email address to manage your domain names, turn on the “Auto renew” option of your domain names.
If the domain names you like have been registered, and you don’t wish to pay lots of money to buy it from the current owner or domain broker, then you can register a new one with other extensions, such as .net, .org, .me, .cc, .co, etc.
If you’ve registered some domain names and you’d like to sell them, but don’t know how much should them be listed, then you can visit the Domain Sales Archive at http://www.dnjournal.com/archive/domainsales-archive.htm
