Trip to Murree Hill Station in 2013

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

As promised in my previous post I was going to share some pictures which were taken on the trip of Murree Hill Station last year December 2013. As schools went off so we decided to spend winter holidays once again at the same place we went in 2012. Simply click on pictures to enlarge them.

December 2013 parking revenue and other updates

happy-new-year-and-December-2013-parking-revenue-and-other-updatesHello and Assalamo Alaikum,

I hope everyone having great time spending their holidays. I was unable to make any post for almost a month as I was on vacation with my family to Murree (Hill station in Pakistan) trip and I came back yesterday. I will share the pictures in my next post.

It was a nice month in terms of parking revenue as we made well over $500. I predicted couple of things in the past which were to make $1,000 in parking at the end of this year which unfortunately wasn’t achieved. Secondly, I was going to have 500 domains at the same time which was accomplished right on time.

After doing intensive research I came to the conclusion of making $1,000 in parking each month and will have 850-900 domains at the end of 2014.

December was the slowest month of the year in terms of receiving domain inquiries. The only reason comes to my mind is holidays and holidays. That didn’t stop me from acquiring some more domains which I did in the past few weeks or so…

Fabos.com – Short and brandable domain. Looks short of fabulous and only 5 characters.

Famlee.com – Another brandable domain for family related niche.

BeachGolfClub.com – Normally I don’t invest in 3 word domains but this is a nice name IMO and thanks to Name.com for catching this dropping domain for me.

RedPackaging.com – Brandable domain for any packaging company.

NwEvent.com – Northwest comes to my mind when I see this and Google result does agree with me.

Saladi.com – I am quite addicted towards first and last names because I see good future as more and more people coming online and they will definitely need their first or last name in .com so grab it before everything is gone.

Knobbs.com – Same as above.

We at AbdulBasit.com want to thank everyone for all your support from the start of this blog and without your positive feedback, criticism and comments this would never been an easy task. We wish all of you a vigorous, joyful and flourishing New Year!

Some recent domain acquisitions by AbdulBasit.com

Some-recent-domain-acquisitions-by-AbdulBasit.comHello and Assalamo Alaikum,

It’s been a while since I posted some of recent domain acquisitions. Today I wanted to share some domains which were acquired through multiple ways like auctions, pending deletes, private acquisition, etc. Below are some of the names which were bought in the last couple of months or so…

EHYG.com – I know it’s not looking good as far as characters are concerned but I will take it.

ScrapbookShop.com – I like this name and there are few companies operating under the same name and others have long tail words joining with it.

Afifah.com – It’s a Muslim name of a girl and more commonly Afifa is used, ending with letter “H” makes it less valuable but still hundreds if not thousands of people are there in world using the same spelling in their names.

LawGroups.com – This is one of my first domain in law niche but I am trying to get into this more deeply because the CPC at parking platforms for such domains are really good. As it was recently bought so can’t give you much estimate about the traffic stats but to me this sounds a decent name. Yeah, if it was singular would be far better.

Ruhrstadt.com – Normally I don’t invest in other languages but I found lot of potential in this term.

TheTurbo.com – Well, I really like domains which starts with “The” and there is fellow domainer Shane who loves it as well. I have some other domains which starts with “The” and will try to gather some other time and share with you guys. This can be used for gaming, movie, sports and many different niches.

Alchin.com – When I sold my first domain which had both first and last name a year ago had changed my mind since than as I am seeing people getting more interested in buying domains of their names. I have found two word name selling quite slow compare to one word name no matter it’s commonly used or not. As number of inquiries have rose in past few months which have made me to invest a little more in first, last and first/last names together as well.

Andrepont.com – It was registered in 90’s and dropped recently. A last name which sounds good while calling it.

HannahRose.com – A two word name which is quite common and there are many Hannah Rose who would like to upgrade their name to just HannahRose.com one day… some day…

Matmed.com – Can’t say much about this name. I like it and grabbed it from drop… May be you could add some more info for this domain…

Care to share your recent domain acquisitions? Also if you wish to comment and share your feedback about my domain purchases?

Parking revenue for October and November 2013

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

Since there was some issue at DomainNameSales platform in updating the parking revenue so I was unable to publish my parking $$$ for October. However, there wasn’t much changed. I don’t see much improvement though but there was consistency in revenue for the past several months. We made over US$800 for the last two months which isn’t bad but I am hopeful to see some improvement in coming time.

In September 2013 our portfolio generated almost similar amount so nothing much changed in this regard.

Care to share how was your parking revenue in recent times? Any feedback is welcome.
