@arthur_west_iv I should have added: I have owned hundreds of domains over the past 5 - 10 years. No-one pays crazy money for them anymore and parked pages don’t generate anything.
There is always an exception to prove the rule, so why not go park yourself a domain and see what happens.
@arthur_west_iv in the vast vast vast majority of cases, no.
Your question specifically states “a domain” so I’m treating this as the question is about one single domain.
Unless you own something that ridiculous numbers of people will flock to organically, then no.
@arthur_west_iv Most large companies that want to buy domains already own them. Startups mostly think of alternatives to their preferred domain. Unless you bought the domains already, it's probably not worth investing in
@arthur_west_iv Chiming in here based off experience with a few individuals I know. One has nearly 1,000 parked domains.
From what I've seen, the domains that sell best (most frequently and for the highest price) are NOT misspelled variations of pre-existing websites/web apps.
They are domain names which are named after a company or individual but were not taken, presumably because the company or individual did not think to grab it initially.
Second, although much more uncommon than the above, the domain is the same as a popular website/app but has a different TLD (e.g., .net or .org instead of .com). TLDs introduced after 2000 seem to sell almost never with this method.
