    My question is in the subject line -
    I'd like to add one more to that -
    And - is the age of the domain considered even if the domain is an exact match (I'm talking about extensions like .com, .co.uk .de etc.)

    In other words - has anybody been able to sell an exact match recently registered domains ?

    Thanks

    I would say .com is the best for flipping, based on popularity of extension and therefore number of potential buyers.

    Yes .com for sure will be top on the list - but what would be the secondary one ?

    I thought rather going by .net - .de could attract germans - but not sure how to reach out to end users - But i think sedo can do that thing for me.

    And then .co.uk probably - Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks :)

    The main problem you are going to have for flipping, is finding decent domains that are actually free to reg.

    Yes, I would say .net, .de and .co.uk are all strong extensions, where there is a healthy resale market, so yes, all of these offer opportunities for flipping. However, you might find it difficult to find the really strong keywords available in these extensions. With that in mind, I'd say the .co domain offers interesting flipping possiblities, as good keywords might be easier to find there.

    So, to answer the question properly, my own view of the order for best flipping opportunities would be:

    .com
    .co
    .net
    .de
    .co.uk

    OK, good luck with it, and don't forget to watch the weekly sales report at dnjournal.com (if you don't already).
