    Wow...replies so quick.

    I am in Qld, I have only 2 domains (.com) that I registered a few years ago when I naively thought that all you needed was a domain to make millions if they were set up right (PPC frenzy).

    In the end I have one that is sort of adult related product sales (but not porn based) geared initially on ppc but shifting towards actual sales from a couple of affiliates so its overdue for a revamp which I am slowly in the process of sorting out. Doing it all myself as I have time ..because I have no money. 'Safe lingerie sites' in google puts me at 3, 4 and 5 of 56 mil worldwide and 1 and 2 in Oz from 480K. Even though at the moment its not what you would call a pretty site (by any stretch) its completely home made and an ugly baby of mine which could do okay with a little surgery.

    The second I registered but have not put to use and am wondering what to do with ozclix dot com.

    I was drawn to this forum as I was looking to maybe sell ozclix (which is DN only) and was doing some research about what is involved, possible worth etc...just taking everything in at the moment and trying to garnish knowledge where I can and looking at my options.

    Thanks for the replies so far.

    Jay

    Hi Jay, thanks for the intro, the forum has a good mix of members stretching lots of different industries so I'm sure you'll pick up some good tips to help your baby grow :)

    As for ozclix, it depends on your plans for it. We do have a Top Level Domain (TLD) section in our marketplace and you're welcome to post TLD's on our Appraisal section

    Hi everyone....thanks for the welcomes.

    In the last day or so I have been accused of milking this forum for info and not contributing. This has caused some resentment with a couple of members here and resulted in what I considered an inappropriate post in a sponsors subforum on this site. I have been called on it, so here it is.

    I went through my post/thread stats over the last 6 weeks. In that time I have started 12 threads requesting general Au domaining info and also contributed or responded to some 30 odd that were not started by me.

    While I did start enquiring posts, these were pretty much all of a general nature relating to domaining. The reason I havent asked specific questions about individuals or specific operations......well as far as I'm concerned thats your business. I havent asked specific questions about domain name registrations (whats hot what isnt etc)...again, thats where the money is and thats your business, everyone has their own 'thing'. At the moment I'm searching for hours on hand reg opportunities because that is the only way I can start out at the moment.

    No I dont have experience in domaining ...thats why I'm here. I want to give domaining a fair go and try and make some half decent income for me and the family and if that means wanting to know whats what and asking general questions without sticky beaking into people personal operations then fair enough, right now I dont have money to burn to make mistakes, but it doesnt mean I'm looking for a free ride either, if I have something to contribute to a thread then I will.

    Today I hand reg'd what I think are two half decent domains (even getting around to doing this is a story in itself at the moment, but after missing the opportunity to hand reg a killer I didnt want to risk these), posted them up and got no replies, yet a hypothetical with no name got several. Whether this was as a result of what was said relating to the above I dont know, but it feels that way.

    So can we try this again please, if not, so be it.

    Hi, I'm Jay from Hervey Bay. I now have 4 domains (2 previously mentioned) and 2 new Au's with a view to get into domaining as a source of income (parking, developing, and if offers come in so be it). While I am not looking for (and never have) an 'X marks the spot' on finding and securing that top selling domain, I may ask for help on some of the finer points of marketing what I have (and aquire in the future).

    Cheers Jay.
