Flippa Friday

Hello, Happy Friday and welcome to Flippa Friday here on MorganLinton.com! One big change I’m starting to see over the last couple of weeks is the influx of new gTLDs into the marketplace. As I’ve said many times before, I think the best investment opportunities are without a doubt in the .COM space, but, that being said, it’s still interesting to see this change.

Comic.tv – I have been a fan of .TV for quite a while now and while I do think .COMs definitely have the most liquidity, I do love a good .TV and this is a great on IMO. I don’t think names like HomeSales.tv or CarInsurance.tv make sense but Comic.tv and Comedy.tv absolutely do. I’ll might be buying this one depending on how high it ends up going.

Repairs.info – as we’ve seen many times before, .INFO domains tend to do pretty well on Flippa. While I don’t think Repairs.info is as good as something like Insurance.info I do think it is a decent name and for under $500 is probably a pretty good deal with some nice flip potential in the future.

StockMarket.guru – currently at $1,000 with one day to go and only two bids. Any pricing on new gTLDs is purely speculative, still I do like .guru and think that this might not be a bad deal for this name. Don’t expect to flip it and make a profit but these keywords do go well with .GURU.

JustJourney.com – I love a nice brandable two-word .COM and this is one that’s easy to spell, easy to remember, and applicable to a number of different business ideas. I personally think it’s a pretty awesome fit for a travel blog but there are plenty of other uses. Passes the radio and billboard test, and yes, I might be bidding on it.

    Do you really think the gTLDs have promise? I saw DomainInvesting.guru listed on Flippa too but the BIN is way too high. What do you think of a name like that?

    Hi Morgan,

    I am hooked on your blog after finding it and I had a domain question for you. I managed to pick up a one word .guru domain name, elliptical.guru and wanted your opinion. I am currently developing it into an affiliate site, would that hurt the future value for a potential domain buyer. I sure hope .guru domains will be worth something in a couple of years.

    I also have been thinking about grabbing your domain investment book, I would like to learn how to buy domains to flip for profit like the pros on flippa.

    Thanks

    Dave

    @Dave – thanks for the kind words and glad to hear you enjoy the blog! I think investing in any new gTLD is a big risk so assume that every dime you spend will be worth $0 a year from now. It’s a complete gamble. If you want to make money investing in domains .COM is where you want to be.

    As for dipping your toe in the water with .GURU, developing it will most-likely only help as the price will be directly related to how well it ranks on Google, # visitors, revenue, etc.

    So in short, don’t spent too much time because these are completely unproven extensions when it comes to resale, but if you have fun developing sites have at it, just know that you’ll want to focus on .COM if buying/selling domains is your thing.

    Hi Morgan,

    I was afraid you were going to say that about the guru domains. I am probably just going to develop the site and then sale it. How do you find any .coms that are worth anything?
