My real domain business has and always been plant names. I have coneflower.com, heucheras.com, vermicomposting.com, moderngardener.com, nurserycatalog, coleus.com, landscapemanager, and 100s more. It’s how I make my real money in domaining but i DO love 5 letter dot coms. They are such great brands. Generally they don’t mean anything and contrary to to 4 letter domains, can create words that are easy to say and spell. As I’ve said a million times before, MOST 5L ARE JUNK, but the good ones, in my opinion, are just as valuable as any CVCV.com. Here is a list of some of the names I’ve acquired over the years and some were hand regged, some I paid a few hundred, and for sello, thousands. I’ve never sold any 5L for under $500 and have sold 9 names already this year through sedo or private offers. It has been a very profitable part of my domain portfolio. My rules for picking domains have kept me from buying too many names and kept me taking in more money than I’m spending, which last time I checked, is the key to making money. Please take a look at some of my names and let me know what you think. You’ll notice a trend that, for the most part, shows I like easy to spell and say names. You think they suck, that’s fine. I’d still love to hear your opinions.
