Apart from the few cases related to misuse in the case of brand protection, using domain names for your business is a legitimate practice.
The technique of domain name parking is the method that makes it possible to get the return on investment as quickly as possible. Indeed, if we compare to the speculation method on domain names, we find that this approach requires to see to medium or even long term. Thus, a domainer can buy domain names on an intuition and resell them at the most appropriate time, several months or years later. Others will prefer to work their domains to rank them as much as possible in a theme. But it obviously depends on the sensitivities and skills of each person.

How to get started in this business? What do you need to know? Let’s find out how to develop your business in Expired Domain Names.
Finding Expired Domain Names
As mentioned above, there are several types of domain names expiring. And there are different uses. Also, do not throw yourself on the first expired domain that crosses your way. As a reminder, what you are interested in is the traffic linked to the domain. First of all, you have to look for domains in a very specific topic, in this case the one you are interested in. If you want to advertise on the theme of travel, credit or makeup, this will impact on the choice of domain to use. To do so, consult the domain keywords. Thus, by doing your search with an intelligent search engine – such as YouDot – you will be able to identify the most relevant domains on your topic. You can use filters to ignore certain keywords, choose a maximum number of characters, select only the extensions you think are the most relevant (.FR, .ME, .EU, .BE for example) depending on the language of the content and advertising.
On Youdot it is thus possible to recover real gems. The service is free, you just need to sign in to access the list of expired domain names. You will find the Domain Names about to expire and position you to pre-order them. If the domain is free, you can recover it. Otherwise (ie if the former holder has finally retracted and has chosen to renew it) it is unfortunate for you, but at least the operation will cost you nothing.
Be careful! If the domain interests you, chances are you are not the one wanting to acquire it. And in this case, the domain goes to auction for 7 days and the person who will make the highest bid will win.
Analyze your domains
For each domain name listed on the backorder platform, Youdot provides information on many indicators such as backlinks, domain’s age, Trust Flow … These are taken when the domain name is snapped and then updated every two months.
By reviewing these data, you will be able to appreciate the quality of the expired domain, its traffic, and the quality of its links so that you could use them later.
Register your domains
