Domain names - can you make money

Making money from domain names
One can earn money with domain names.  You can buy a domain name and park it.  This means not use it.  However, instead of letting it sit, you monetize it.  Google AdSense for Domains, Sedo, and Domain Sponsor all have paid programs for parked domains.  You can also flip a domain by buying it and reselling for a profit.  Or, domains can be used the way they were intended to be; by using it to create a moneymaking website.

Risk Involved 

To make money with domain name one should also be acquainted  with the associated risk. All moneymaking opportunities have risk.  With paid surveys, you might not get paid.  With paid emails, you may get a computer virus.  Risks are always present when making money online.  That doesn’t mean that you should ignore or fear them.  Instead, familiarize yourself with them and stop them from happening.

The biggest risk of making money with domains is losing money.  To purchase a domain, you need about $10 and an available, unregistered domain name.  In reality, $10 isn’t a lot of money, but it can easily add up.  So, proceed with caution.  If you only have $50 to invest in domain name flipping, choose your domain names wisely.  Opt for a name that is short in length, contains a popular keyword phrase, is easy to remember, easy to understand, and ends in a .com address.
As previously stated, using a domain name is a great way to profit from it.  This involves purchasing web hosting.  A web hosting plan is needed to add content and moneymaking advertisements from pay-per-click or affiliate programs.  To minimize profit losses, opt for a cheap web hosting package.  When buying both a domain name and web hosting package, your domain should be offered for free or at a steeply discounted price.
Another risk of making money with domains is time.  That includes wasted time and too much time spent trying to make money.  If you opt to use a domain name with a website filled with advertisements, you made residual income.  This is income generated overtime, but significant profits might not occur for six months or more.  If you need money right now or want fast results, opt for domain name flipping.
Domain names need to be renewed.  The fact that domain names need to be renewed is not risky, but whether or not you decide to is.  For starters, are you waiting to sell a domain until you are approached or when it is in high demand?  If so, you could wait two years or more.  If a new movie is produced that is similar to your domain name, you could be offered big bucks for it, but the wait may be years.  In that time, you need to decide if you want to keep paying the low renewal fee.  Is it worth it?  Honesty, you never know so that is a risk you must take.
