Getting into .cc domains

It was late 2004 when my father told me that was available to register and we got that domain. Soon I developed a website on that with forum on phpBB. I didn’t knew how to promote my website so I started spamming to every individual trader and trading companies to register on my website and start discussion anything related to their businesses. I bought email addresses list from internet which was really a bad idea if you ever think of doing that because sending unsolicited emails is unethical and not legal. However, that was my just starting in developing and promoting a website.

I didn’t succeed in promoting well enough as per my planning so I stopped doing anything for that site and left that project as it is. In search of finding domain renewal coupons I found where I got GoDaddy coupon codes for the renewal of from where I started learning about domaining which was really exciting for me. As mentioned in my earlier post that I never bought lot of domains and was always careful. I just wanted to read and get complete knowledge about domains. It seems crazy but for several years I had only 15-20 domains only and most of them were .cc

Today I own 20 odd .cc domains including,,,, If you are interested in buying .cc domains today I would strongly suggest you to invest in premium keywords only because the demand from end users isn’t much. I will be posting more articles about .cc domains in near future so stay tuned.

Care to share your .cc domains you currently own and your thoughts about the demand for end users.

Started serious domain investing in 2010

It was the end of 2004 when my father asked me to buy a domain and develop a website and it was which I never took seriously. After couple of years I came to know about domaining business which made me exciting to dig in and I started buying around 50 domains most of which were crap and dropped in 1-2 year period.

Fast forward to 2008 when I took domaining seriously and started reading blogs, surfing forums like,,,,, which helped me in making correct decisions in buying domain names. It was in 2010 when I started buying some decent names through GoDaddy Auctions and dropping domains through SnapNames which is so far the best backordering site in my experience.

You can look at my portfolio from which I have chosen only a few to list which will give you an idea of what type of domains I have purchased so far –

It’s my suggestion to invest wisely in domain names and before you purchase your first domain as an investment you must read for at least a couple of months and understand what all other successful domainers do and follow their way.
