If you’re looking to purchase a domain name that’s already taken, you can turn to the aftermarket. This is where interested buyers can bid or negotiate a price for an existing domain name. Domain brokers also operate in the aftermarket, buying and selling domains on behalf of clients.
As a domain investor, you should also be familiar with domain extensions. The last section of a domain name is known as the top-level domain (TLD), which is sometimes called the domain extension. This part of the domain name is meant to communicate the purpose or location of a website. There are several types of TLDs, including generic top-level domains (gTLDs), country code top-level domains (ccTLDs), and sponsored top-level domains (sTLDs).
Finally, it’s important to know that domain investing is not without its risks. Cybersquatting and typosquatting are two practices that can lead to legal issues, and domain valuation can be a tricky task. However, with the right knowledge and strategy, domain investing can be a lucrative venture for those willing to put in the effort.
