intelI did quite a bit of research over the past days to register some quality 5 Letter domains,, below are some results. First of all this is geared towards western, English speaking world, and potential end users, and it’s mostly unrelated to the recent surge in Chinese domains. Most of the below analysis is based on letter frequencies in the English language and also the letter frequencies presented in high value sales of domains.

What makes these domains interesting? They arepronounceable, easy to remember and make good brands. And brands is what end users want, and the main reason for high value domain sales.

The Coolest Flippa Auction Ever?

Posted in Flippa on January 17th, 2015 by Michael – 6 Comments


A recent auction on flippa broke all records, with 330 bids in just half a day! It’s a neat new site with a unique service – it sends glitter to the people you hate (or like?) the most. In an avalanche of viral effects and incredible publicity the site had over 2.5 million visitors and $20k AUD in sales in just 4 days. The profit is 60-80% of this, according to the owner.

However it will likely require some outsourcing to ship this amount of orders, and the costs might increase. So it’s not surprising is not taking any more orders currently due to inability to fulfill them: “Please stop buying this horrible glitter product — I’m sick of dealing with it. Sincerely, Mat,”, his other quotes included: “I apparently have too much free time on my hands because now my plans for the next few weeks consist of sending stupid fucking glitter to terrible people,” read more »

All My Sites Are Down Ughh!

Posted in Hosting on September 23rd, 2014 by Michael – 1 Comment

Probably the most frustrating part of this business that every webmaster faces. Most of my sites are down currently, as my hosting company IceBlueHost is having some issues with their datacenter. They’ve been down for about half a day now and there is not much I can really do, except wait..

We are sorry to report that currently all servers in Germany are unreachable.
We are doing our utmost to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Hopefully this gets resolved soon. This is especially awkward since I just started two auctions on flippa for small revenue sites and had to explain the potential buyers why the sites are down.. Luckily, at least this blog is hosted on a different server.

How frequently do you face similar hosting problems?

Making a Living by Selling Starter Sites on Flippa

Posted in Flippa on August 24th, 2014 by Michael – 1 Comment


A new segment was launched on Flippa recently – Starter Sites. Following the popularity of newly created websites on their marketplace Flippa decided to better capitalize on it, by creating a whole new area for them.

In my opinion it’s a good way for new site investors to get their feet wet and enter “the game” with minimal costs.. but also minimal gains, as 99% of those sites are never going to make any revenue or pay for themselves. However the buyers could get the required experience and get a feel for how it works, so they can move on to bigger and better purchases next. And, who knows, some of these sites might even make a few bucks on adsense, over the years. read more »
