Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to explain what a domain name reseller is. A domain name reseller is a company that buys up domain names and then sells them to make a profit. This is a lot like buying and selling real estate to make a profit because, basically, domain names are like real estate in that it's a kind of piece of the Internet which you own and which can have either a very significant value or barely any value at all. This means that if you have a domain name that's, for example, about a very researched topic -- like, let's say, Xbox, for example. The domain Xboxworld.com will fuel very good search results when somebody searches for Xbox in Google if you create the page correctly. This means that if you can anticipate the new topics which are going to be searched a lot in the future and get the domain name that's relevant to those topics before anybody else does, then they'll be worth a lot. And this is what domain name resellers try to speculate on to make profit. Let's look at some examples of domain name reselling. At Exclusivedomains.com, for example, we can see a few domains that have recently been sold or bought. Healthcare.com, for example, as you can imagine, is something that a lot of people search for on the Internet. Therefore, since it has a higher earning potential, it's a very exclusive domain, which can be sold for a lot of money. The same applies for names like airplanes.com. Another domain name reseller is buydomains.com. Here, again, we can see domain names with keywords that a lot of people search for like PancakeHouse or SoccerWorld. Also, notice that the prices aren't even listed and must be requested, meaning that they're obviously very high and probably negotiable in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
