Investopedia is a very popular financial website that is described as “a premiere resource for investing education, personal finance, market analysis and free trading simulators.” Based on some analytics I found, it likely gets over a million monthly visits. People visit Investopedia to learn about trading and investing strategies, market news, and for information about various types of investments.
I saw that Investopedia added a new article about domain names last week, and I think it’s pretty neat to see. The article, written by Justin Kuepper, is titled, “How To Make Money With Domain Names,” and it covers a few popular topics such as investing in various types of domain names, buying and selling names, and the risk of domain investments.
The article summary is quite succinct:
“Like any investment, domain names come with their own set of risks. However, for diligent investors who consider the risks and returns thoroughly, domain names can become an investment that yields high returns, and a unique way to diversify his/her portfolio of investments.”
If you could add to the Investopedia article, what information do you think is essential that is missing? Personally, I think it’s a pretty solid write-up that covers investments, and I think it would be beneficial to add information about investing in alternative extensions and ccTLDs. Hopefully, they will turn this article into a series of articles on the topic of domain name investments. Perhaps they might benefit readers by adding links to popular resources, like domain forums, news outlets, and blogs.
Thanks to Protrada for letting me know about the article.
