Do you still invest in .cc/.im domain names?

From 2004 I mostly focused on .cc domains and .im compared to .com which was really a horrible mistake because as everyone knows .com is king but I was not getting any single keyword domains in .com so I thought to shift my mind towards ccTLDs. In the past 6 years I have purchased and still own over 50 .cc/.im domains and barely sold 15 domains altogether.

Both of them are very slow pace ccTLDs. You will find gems from time to time but there are not many buyers for those domains. You will hardly receive any offers. I am saying because having decent size and quality portfolio of .cc/.im domains such as,,,,,,,,, and I am very much disappointed with the aftermarket of these ccTLDs. If I recall my memory I had received maximum of 10 offers to date for all these domains listed above in last 5-6 years period, not an impressive number of inquiries.

I strongly suggest not to invest in such low popular extensions where you face difficulties in finding end users and making successful sales.

I would like to know if you still invest in .cc/.im domain names? What are your existing purchases and have you sold any of them to date? Are you in the same boat of mine or against my views? I would love to hear comments no matter how good or bad they are 😉

    Hi Abdul,
    Came across your blog by accident [via] and have found it really interesting. Keep it up like that. I have few .cc myself but haven’t sold even one. Probably will let all of them go.


    P.S. I’m adding your blog to my favorites. You are good!

    Dear Mark,

    Thanks for your compliment. So nice of you. It’s just a new blog and I will be adding more quality stuff as the time goes on…

    It’s difficult to sell .cc domains. But when you are in .cc auction there you will see lot of bidders and the price going above your limit and that’s where many new investors make mistake by looking at the number of bids/bidders and go over their limit and overpay for the domain.

    Let me know if you have any questions or anything to be posted 🙂
