    Hey all, what your thoughts on getting 2 letter domain names that are for other TLD's like xyz or we.bs .services
    Is it worth it, and can you flip them or is it worthless?

    I saw your list, yes lucrative for .com.au , but its more i've seen some for other tlds, and name based domains, and wondering if they are just a waste of time and money.

    Great tool thanks for sharing.
    My own hosting allows me to crawl some 50 TLDs, by adding my keyword, but that tool is great, showing real sale prices.

    As someone that registered plenty of odd extensions, I'd recommend sticking to tried and tested extensions .com and .com.au. Pay a little more for the very best names rather that lots of "ok" names.

    Good Question.
    There are now 3000 domain name extensions available. Pay more and stick with the big guns .COM, .CO.UK, .COM.AU you can make money on others but it is risky.
    Check this out www.dnjournal.com and it gives you an idea whats selling in what extensions.Some extensions are $1 USD a year now.. They are giving them away basically.
    Some people here on the forum have some good 2 and 3 letter .com.au results and are keen on them.

    If you could get any 2 letter .com's you are probably sitting on a goldmine. That ship may have sailed.
