    Hi all,

    I am new to buying and selling domains but I do own a three websites. I built my first site around a hobby I am interested in, I don't really advertise it and it is now doing fairly well. I have expanded on that and now have a site where I part time deal in the products relating to my hobby. I also purchased an off the shelf domain with content.

    I have been reading this forum for a while and trying to learn the do's and dont's as well as what makes a successful domain but obviously I have a lot to learn.

    My main aim is to develop 20-30 sites and try and perhaps make a little on advertising on each. My main reference site earns me about £60 a month via Google and eBay ads. If I could build 20-30 sites that could earn half that I'd be happy. Plus buying, selling and especially finding new domain names looks like fun.

    I have been on a bit of a spending spree this week buying domain names. I have about 25 now but have found a few more I want to buy. Most have been either registered by me, some I have bought for £20-£30. The most expensive was middle £xx I paid for a town name.

    I know what you are all thinking, probably a pile of cr*p but I think I've scored a couple of decent names.

    I'll list my domains in a few weeks-month once I have completed the purchase of my new ones. I don't want to show my hand as it where or show what I have just yet as some of the new ones I'm looking at are very similar to or are much the same as the ones I recently bought.

    Anyway this looks like a great place and I'm glad to be on board!

    Nova

    Hey Nova, Hi from Edinburgh - I'm fairly new to the forum too :)

    I worked & lived in Galashiels a few years back - used to love exploring the borders when I had time off.

    Best Of Luck with your domaining & development :)

    The general consensus seems to be that developing a few sites well it much better than having tons of tiny sites. I can't say I'm an expert when it comes to development though, so other members might disagree.

    A town name for ££ - I'm guessing that isn't a .co.uk?

    Welcome to Acorn, Nova.

    Would depend on the actual town, obviously – but without knowing more details, sounds like you got it for an excellent price.
