I always find it interesting to hear what other people are purchasing. This past year I added some solid landscaping names to my portfolio including Landscaping.net and LandscapeDesigner.com. This last few months I added a few names to my portfolio that I thought had good value. Maybe not premium names, but names I feel will be worth more than what I paid for them now or soon. Here are some of the names I bought
What? You bought dot cc. I realize that dot cc is very risky but I like it. I see it increasing in value with the introduction of the generic tlds. If .xyz has a chance then .cc will do even better. People all have the same reaction “The logic is solid”. Meaning they don’t agree but and would never put their money in them but the idea is not flawed. I also get “Why not .ws as well” My original dot cc were bought as a play on Champaign County, the area where I live, and is what people use to refer to a group of local cities in the area. But when the new generics came out I figured I would add a few more to my portfolio for a few reasons. There is no easier to type ending out there. The Chinese have accepted it so having a few billion supporting is a good start. And there is always the chance it could become cool elsewhere. And they are cheap. They actually have become more expensive this year. I have had to pay a lot more in the last few months then earlier in the year. Again, if XYZ has any value then dot cc has more in my opinion. I couldn’t resist the Christmas domains because I started with SantaClaus as a gag email but then Christmas came up for auction and last week NorthPole dropped. I figure it’s the perfect basket of names. Not a lot of people own the big three of Christmas in a tld. As for Lawyers, I figured I would find out if dot cc had any value by buying one of the best keywords I could. But of course I bought some dot coms…..like
BoxOfficeWeekly Sounds like an official site already

While none of these names are category killer names I got them all at great value IMO. I think I could sell every single one of them at a profit tomorrow and more than pay for my dot cc domains that I took a gamble on. And that’s the point of business last time I checked. When it’s all said and done…to make money.
